    • ncangel

      Just noticed a small typo. The Land of frost meat is $4.50 with a $1 Q (which doubles) would actually be only $2.50 during super doubles. HTH.

    • momsdword1

      Thanks so much for all you do to provide the shopping lists with coupons,etc.
      There is helpful info on many sites, but I use your site everyday. You are the best!!!

    • careyfoley

      My HT will not double or triple a manufacturer coupon that says on the coupon Do Not double or triple! The jimmy Dean's will not work here in Amelia Island, FL. just FYI.

      • lisa

        WE LOVE AMELIA ISLAND!!!!! ITS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!! :)

      • Nichole

        I really do not like the customer service at that Harris Teeter. Its such a shame on their part. I only go there for the super doubles and triples. :( They always make me feel like I am a HUGE inconvenience to them! We'll see how it works out tomorrow! :/

        • Joolz2010

          Talk to the store Manager if that doesn't work go straight to corporate. My Assistant at the store I shop at loves couponers! He understands how coupons work and the fact that they generate more revenue for his store and further more that I choose to shop there when I could take my $250 worth of multiple transactions somewhere else. You might be surprised if you talk to the right people what would happen.

        • careyfoley

          and the Winn Dixie here. They are worse. Publix got bad for awhile until I contacted corporate and had a conversation about it with the store manager. I hope you have good luck tomorrow!

    • denaSC

      Are the deals posted the other day still good this week too? The ones under super doubles?

      • They are all for this coming week. Those are the deals that are based on regular prices and these are the deals that are just in the weekly ad.

    • elizabeth

      Someone sent me an $8.00 perdue coupon. Where do i go to find out if it is “real”?

      • bridget

        You can look on hot coupon world to find out about bogus coupons. Also, if it sounds too good to be true, it is – $8 off Perdue is surely a fake. Sorry.

    • Allison

      Went to Harris Teeter this morning and got $30.00 worth of groceries for $8.00!!!! Also went to CVS and got $21.00 worth of stuff for and only paid $1.61! New to this couponing thing and already hooked.

    • Allison

      Also my Harris Teeter did double my coupons that said do not double/triple

    • I am so excited about Super Doubles. The only thng I want to mention is that the “deals” on Pepsi products 2 liters and 12 packs arent really good at all at HT. Try your local CVS for much better deals on these.
      The strawberries are great price and I a very excited about these!

    • Oh – and with any Bricks coupon after printing once hit your back button 3 times and you can almost ALWAYS print the coupon a few more times. Just a little FYI! The degree deodorant coupon printed 4 times!

    • Heather

      CapriSun sunrise is on sale for $2.69 and there is a 1.00 q in SS 4/25. Makes for some cheap juice boxes!

      • ACW

        I clipped those but hadn't checked the price yet. Thanks!

    • Heather

      Hi there! Just had a question…I'm trying to find the Eight O'Clock coffee coupons in the 4/25 SS insert? I get my coupons from the Tennessean. I checked the coupon variations post for this date, but there wasn't any mention of whether this coupon was or was not included? It was not listed in black, red, or blue type. Could it be possible the insert date for this coupon was typed wrong? Help? Thanks!

      • Sue

        Heather I had the same problem with my coupons. I am in the Charlotte area. I did find the coupon in the 3/14 SS but it is expired.

        • Sue

          Sorry, I should have said the Asheville area. That is were I got my coupons this week.

      • ACW

        It wasn't in the Durham-Raleigh paper, either. However, there's a 0.75/1 Q in the April or May 'All You', making one 99cents.

    • ACW

      There is a $1/2 printable for Old Orchard 64oz juice at their website, making these 99cents for 5, or 20cents apiece. :)

      • Check my math but I think these will be 0.79 each still a great deal. But you have to buy all 5 to get this deal

        • Brittney

          yeah but if you have the b1g1 coupon its $.59

        • ACW

          You're absolutely right. My apologies! I'm fighting a cold and was doped up on cold medicine yesterday… lol

      • Heather

        Thanks for the tip, I just got 2 q’s!

    • Bev

      My paper (The Charlotte Observer) had a stand-alone insert coupon for .75/1 Nature’s Own Perfect Slice Premium Bread. It was weird, b/c it was definitely not in RP or SS–just a full-size insert on it's own with all the other ads. So at HT this week, that would make this loaf of bread .34! (This is the same kind of bread that was free on many e-VICs this past week. I also saw this exact bread at my local Dollar Tree for $1. Wow, they must be really pushing the sales!)

      • Brittney

        bev there's also a sara lee soft and smooth on facebook

      • Melissa

        I was excited about noticing that great bread deal too! Thought it was odd that it was a stand alone coupon, but heh, cheap bread is cheap bread – no matter how the coupon came! LOL

    • deniseCLT

      there is a $1 off coupon in the June All You for Kettle Chips, making those .50 this week! Also- I got a catalina at HT yesterday for Kraft and Solo items. The Kraft deal – buy 2 kraft dressings, get $1, buy 3, get $2, buy 4, get $3 off coupon for next order. Runs 5/21-6/27. Solo deal- buy 2 solo products, get $1, buy 3 get $3, buy 4 get $4 q for next order. Runs 5/21-6/13.

    • Nan

      BIG Question…I am new to this and I have a bunch of coupons for $1 off…should I go ahead and use them this week at HT or only if they are listed?

      • Bev

        Hi Nan, The goal of couponing is not just to use any $1/off coupon, but wait and use it when you can get the item at its lowest price. A number of items at HT will be at their lowest price using a super doubled coupon, but not all. So that's why Jenny might not have that particular item or coupon listed.

        One of the best ways to check the price of an item for a coupon you have is to go to harristeeter(dot)com and click on “express lane”. Next click on your state, and then the HT closest to you, then “proceed to store”. It will pull up a search box and you just search for the item in question to find the listed price.

        I tend to not use a coupon on super doubles unless I can get the item for at least 60-75% off regular price. Remember items go on B1G1 frequently, so it probably won't be worth using your coupon to just get it for 50% off (unless it's an item you desperately need right now!). Eventually when you build up your pantry stock, you'll probably only want to pick up the items that are free or almost free during the doubles & triples week. That's when it gets REALLY fun! :-) But have fun looking through your coupons and figuring out what price you're willing to pay for an item. The online website of HT prices is invaluable to me when I'm figuring out my coupons (which I have to do tonight!).

        Hope that helps!

        • Nan

          Thanks for the tip!

        • Jennifer

          Can you help me figure out if the vic member prices listed on my express lane are going to be the price tomorrow?

          • After 3pm on Tuesday all the prices you see will be good for Wednesday's ad.

      • jess

        Take them with you. There's alot more on sale than what the ad shows.

      • bunchofpants

        If the item is something I really need now, I will sometimes go ahead and use the coupon even if it's not a sale price. Otherwise, I usually wait for a sale price. But I take my entire coupon binder on my shopping trips because you never know when something will be on clearance or an a sale that isn't shown here (there are often regional variations in sale prices).

    • LeAnnaShaw

      Okay-so how many pple are as excited as I am? This is my first super doubles. I plan on getting up at 6 and being at the store shopping and ready to check out by 7:00. Is anyone else planning on doing that? Also-any one in No-VA-Woodbridge HT? I would love to meet a fellow SS!!

      • jess

        I'm going to be there at 7 too!

      • Kari

        I'll be at the HT in Broadlands, Va!

      • michelle

        I go to the one in Tysons, Arlington, and Fairfax

    • jess

      Have a question. Is it 20 coupons per household or card? I called and they said household but I was wondering has anyone ever used two different cards(same household) in the same day and got 20 on each?

      • LeAnnaShaw

        If the card are linked to the same house…it would be 20. IF you have two different accounts…i.e you signed up twice…then you could use 40. My son has a card(his own account) and I will sometimes go in twice and use his # for something good….if I want it. I do most of his shopping anyways-so he does not mind!

      • acouponer

        And this is why there are no deals left for the rest of us. Be fair and follow the rules!!!! 20 per day per house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We teach our kids to follow rules b/c they are rules! How dare ADULTS not follow rules themselves.

    • diane

      oscar myer sandwich/sub will be 29 cents ……

    • Janet

      Will Harris Teeter double or triple a coupon even if it says “do not double or triple”?

      • jess

        They should as long as it starts with a 5. They don't if it's a 9. I think I've heard some don't if it says that, but you should try.

      • YMMV. Nashville area HT stores will not accept them. They SCRUTINIZE every single coupon. I had two that I didn't even notice said do not double (it was in small print in the middle of all the text on the coupon) but they sure as heck noticed it.

      • mzperk

        No they won't. The computer knows which coupons say “do not double” by the bar code and it won't double or triple.

      • Lynn

        Janet, YES THEY WILL, the key is to look at the coupon bar code, it will either have a small 5 or a 9 before the row of numbers. If there is a 5 they will double it, even if it says DO NOT DOUBLE OR TRIPLE. If it has a 9, then it won't double.

        I hope this helps to understand. I've been doing this for quite some time.

      • Brittney

        yes as long as the bar code has the little 5 in front.

      • LeAnnaShaw

        when I went this morning they were scrutinizing coupons like crazy. They looked at each and every one for the do not double. Checked and double checked my sizes-etc. They have never been this picky. But it could be that I got there at 6:45 and was shopping alone-meaning NO other shoppers..LOL! And there was no hurry to check me out. I am going back w/ my sons card later today and maybe use one or two-to see if they will be so picky when they are a bit busy. I just wonder why the manq don't just put a 9 in the front IF they don't want us to double! It would take away all this angst of wondering if they will or not!

      • The HT in Bethesda MD always doubles/triples regardless of what the coupon says–as long as it starts with a 5 and automatically does it. Maybe I just get lucky with cashiers.

      • Christa

        If the barcode starts with a 5 it will automatically double when scanned. However, the cashiers at my store in Asheville NC read every coupon and if it says Do Not Double they will not scan it but instead call over a manager to manually enter the coupon amount.

    • Jodi

      I know HT will take competitors coupons (although only grocery stores not drug stores) but do they honor the “spend $25 and get $5 off” from Save A Lot?

      • LeAnnaShaw

        I think so too..b/c once I gave a handful of coupons that included 5/25 at fashion bug! The cashier laughed and said…we do take competitors coupons…but i am not sure this qualifies! I had planned on going to fashion bug after grocery-lol! But I am not sure what excactly I would use…..IDK…

        • Brittney

          the lady in front of me acutally used a rite ad $5 of $25 and they took it.

          • S_Carolina_Girl

            It all depends on your store. My HT will not accept Rite-Aid as a competitor, although there is one less than a mile away. I was told they would not accept it because it is not a grocery store.

    • beth12345

      I have tried over and over to figure out how a B1G1 coupon works when something is already B1G1 free and have finally accepted that I probably will never get it. That being said…how many Old Orchard Juice bottles do I need to get to use my B1G1 coupon and get them for $.59 each? Is it 5? Thanks for the help!

      • LeAnnaShaw

        Beth -the sale is buy 2 get 3 free. From the two you are buying-you will use ONE b1g1 coupon…this means you will essentially buy 1 get 4 free! B/c of the 2 you buy-you will get one free. And then 3 more! HOpe this helps!

      • kcreviews

        Good luck getting your HT to accept B1G1 Qs. Ours will not. I used the $1/2 Old Orchard and it was still a good deal getting 5 juices for $6.

        • Brittney

          they will take it its a coupon from magazine not an internet coupon used it twice today. Just make sure you get all 5 or the offer won't work

        • LeAnnaShaw

          IF they will not take your b1g1 free-I would call cooperate. The policy states No FREE items on internet coupons(i.e a coupon for a free bag of potatoes…etc). B1g1 is a total different coupon. HT cooperate is VERY helpful and friendly. I would not hesitate to call them. I even used my oreo cookies and milk…which was buy one gal of milk(which I always need) and one oreo(on evic for 1.99) and get one oreo free(reg price 2.99). I was worried that they were going to take off the lower one(1.99)-so wrote the price in myself to 'help' out the cashier! And they took it w/out a problem. I know I have also used other internet b1g1 coupons.

      • Jeri

        Yes 5. I bought 5 today, used the B1G1 from All You mag and got all 5 for 2.99 total. Since HT had a B2G3 sale and I had a B1G1 coupon, I only had to buy one to get 4 free. Since the cashier has to enter the amount of coupon, it didn't automatically go through but my cashier knew what she was doing and immediately took 2.99 off. This was an awesome deal!

    • mzperk

      The coupon for Ken's 16oz dressing is actually $1 off 2, not 1. So it won't be $0.15 each but $1.15 each.

      • Cathy

        Yeah I agree. Mine are for $1 off 2 also. But the Ken's marinade is $1 off one in my paper.

    • Cathy

      Where in the world is the Fisher Fusion trail mix located in HT?? I look each time and can't find them. Where are they hiding? Thanks!

      • I had a hard time finding it too. In and unlikely place – but not 100% sure I remember – – check produce area by the pecans and walnuts.

      • Heather

        I have never been able to find those things…and it's not on their online site for my HT in MD, so I don't think mine even carries them.

      • Brittney

        I think i've seen them over by the popcorn

      • diane

        teeter doesnt carry fusion…i ask manager…

    • Jessica

      I have a question about manufacturer BOGO coupons on regular priced items. Can you use two BOGO coupons on two products to get it free? If not, can you use one BOGO coupon and one $1 off — or can you only use 1 BOGO coupon on two products? I hope I didn't confuse anyone. :(

      • ACW

        My HT will not allow 'stacking'. In other words, you can only use one purchased item to qualify for only one free item, and no other cents-off coupons for either, when using a BOGO Q. In other words, if you wanted to use two BOGO Qs, you would need to get four items: two to purchase, and two to get for free. Other stores (CVS and Kroger come to mind) have completely different policies. My HT is really good about answering my questions at the register, though. If I'm uncertain, I'll hold that coupon out from the rest of my stack, and ask them whether it applies. Nothing ventured, nothing gained… right?

        • ACW

          To clarify: this is the policy when using BOGO *coupons*, but the game changes completely when the *store* is running a BOGO *deal*.

          • Jessica

            Thank you!

    • tahsha

      A couple unmentioned deals I found today….Kraft Meltaways on sale for $1.99 and there is a $1 q from one of the recent inserts, so free cheese for us (If I can find it in stock.) Also, Krunchers chips are on sale for 2/$5 and there is also a $1 q for them making them only .50! Blue bunny personals are 3/$4 and there is a printable $1 pdf Q that is emailed to you after joining their “club.” Oscar Meyer deli creations are .50 after $1 q as well.

      • Brittney

        where do you find those melt aways?

        • Jeanne

          With the rest of the cheese.

          • Crista

            I couldn't find them either. I asked someone stocking and she said they were out of stock, but I didn't even see a spot for them. I'm going to a diff. HT today so hopefully they will have some.

            • Becky

              I looked for them at my HT on Tuesday and there wasn't a spot. They guy stocking cheese said he knew they had them recently but thought they might have discontinued them. Bummer because I have a “free” coupon to use on them too.

      • Angela_Marie

        I'm eating the Krunchers right now LOL. I completely missed the Oscar Meyer one though, luckily it's the first day and I have plenty of time to get whatever I missed.

    • Tricia

      Just returned from my first run and found Ken's Ranch Salad dressing 8 oz size was Buy 2 get 3 Free…with the $1.00/2, it was $1.98 for 5 bottles.

      • nancycrom

        Tricia, where are you at? My HT, near Charlotte, doesn't seem to have any special on Kens dressing. Did anybody else near here find it on sale at their HT?

      • Jeri

        I am in the CLT area too and didn't see the Ken's dressing deal? Was it tagged at your store or an unadvertised special?

        • LeAnnaShaw

          That was the deal last week or the week before…maybe her store did not take down the signs???

    • gritsmommy

      I did really good!

    • Christin

      Just made out with $44.74 for $0.67 OOP!!!! Just wanted you to know that Classico red sauce is $2.89 and there is a $1.50/1 SS 4/25. Also Lysol wipes are 2/$6 and there is a $1/1 SS 4/25.

      • kcreviews

        WOW! And I thought I had done well by paying $30 for $70 worth of groceries. You go girl!

      • Brittney

        oo so they are $1 a piece nice.

      • Kretmiser

        You paid $1 for the wipes yet your total OOP is just $0.67 How did you manage that?

    • tahsha

      Between the Totinos deal last night and then today's trip, I paid $1.87oop for $153 worth!!!

    • mzperk

      Ok, I was a little disappointed today. First, none of the items that say there is an instore coupon had one. Such as Kraft Shredded cheese (it was BOGO but no coupon), the jello for .57. Also, my Harris Teeter doesn't carry the Carpet Fresh, which would have been free. The Ken's dressing was not on sale for 2.19. It wa regular price at $3.3something. And the Soft Scrub only printed the coupon for the spray cleaner which was not on sale. But I did get 4 free pizzas and 1 for .50. Bagel bites for .50 a box and BBQ sauce for .19 each.

      • Crista

        Keep your eyes open for instore coupons all the time (the blinkies) I don't usually get these the same week that Jenny posts the deals. It's something you have to prepare ahead for. Just like she often has printables listed that you can no longer print…you had to already have them. You have to stockpile your coupons too! Think of her notes as giving you direction on where you may have “found” them, not necessarily where you can find them right now. The blinkies at Food Lion look exactly like the ones at HT except they have a 5 (so will double or triple) and HT's have a 9 (won't double/triple) so every time I go to Food Lion, I go up and down all the aisles looking for coupons and I store them away until a good deal comes up at HT to use them on. Sometimes I get some that aren't even listed here and sometimes the amount off is a little different but it works out. I hope that helps you use the list a little better. It's all a learning curve and you will get it. I started just a little over a year ago and I'm still getting the hang of some of it but am miles from where I was when I started. My biggest problem now is organizing my coupons. I've tryed several diffferent ways, and I'm not satisfied with any of them.

        Also about the prices. Some things are regional and some things may just not be marked on the shelf. Make sure you pick up the in store flyer so that if something isn't what you expected you can check the local ad, in hand, and see if it actually should be marked down. I have one HT that is bad about not marking the shelves. They also don't carry a lot of items in the size that is on sale, but they are in a “nicer” area that caters to wealthy people that don't coupon much so they often have things I need that other places are wiped clean of, and they are nice to couponers, so I still go there some. I'm lucky to have 4 convenient HT's and at least 4 more that I could go to.

        • mzperk

          Thank you so much! This info is very helpful.

    • megan10

      the yoplus and fiber one yoplait yogurts are on sale for $2 making both of them free with the $1 coupons.

    • megan10

      Paid $2.23 for $55.37 dollars worth of groceries on my first run…! FYI my perdue chicken did not ring up on sale…i let the cashier know….and i got the item for free since it did not ring up correctly!!

      • ali

        I just checked my reciept and mine didnt ring up on sale either! thanks! going back right now! is it store policy you get it free?

        • Brittney

          oh good think you I was going to do this tomorrow. I'll make sure I'll bring the ad in

        • megan10

          Yes look under the coupon policy and it states if an item rings up greater than the shelf price you get  a like item free.

    • Just got back from my first trip. I spent 27 and saved 123!!! I honestly think I like super doubles better than triples!

      • proudlyamom

        DEFINITELY better than triples! I've only been couponing for about 2 months and already twice triples and this is my first super double! So exciting the thrill of the deal!

        • Crista

          I like that they seem to flip back and forth between triples and doubles (especially over the summer). That way I get to weed out my coupons and use them ALL! LOL If they did supers all the time, there are certain things I wouldn't get deals on because you never see $1 off on them. I'm hopin that since this SD came so soon after the last triples that they are warming up for the summer. Last summer I was so busy couponing and stocking my head was spinning! LOL I hope it's like that again. This year I'll have a better idea what I need to stock up on long term to get me through the fall. :O)

    • Kari

      Wahoo … $48.25 before coupons … OOP $10.26 … Thats cuz I got milk, strawberries, bananas, and spices (a little extra for, but I needed them) Can't wait for tomorrow!

    • bunchofpants

      Rang up at $56.23, I paid $12.62. I plan at least two more trips with 20 coupons each.

    • Heather

      I had my HT gallon of milk ring up as FREE VIC special! Have no idea why, it wasn't in my email and I had no idea it was coming….nice surprice!! I did pretty well for myself, total 68.53 and 8.56 OOP. Got the new ( I think they are new) Snyders Eat Smart multigrain sea salt tortilla chips for 1.00 and they are yummy!! have 3 more q's to get more tomorrow!

      • Brittney

        some of the chips has a coupon taged on the bag

    • Brittney

      spent $23.52 saved $98.27 it would have been cheaper but I need some ketchup and I got the zweigles hot dogs cuz i'm a Rochesterian and I'm so tired of my mom shipping them to me but these were still b1g1 so still not a bad deal and I also bought a bag of sun chips cuz at checkout my coupons was expired and I didn't noticed it cuz I was a dork.:) I had alot of manufactured coupons for Free!! what can I say my cashier Ben loves me.

      • LeAnnaShaw

        Brittney, what are the Zweigles like? I am from upstate NY…I love a good hot dog. I don't remembember them. Also my dil loves 'hot' things…and they seemed to be spicy. Do you eat them w/ the red skin on? Just wondering if I should pick some up for summer….if it is a good deal…

    • ali

      My HT (SC) the eight o'clock was only on sale for 5.99 not 4.99 but still B1G1

      • Crista

        I was planning on getting this coffee, but my printable coupon is for $2 off instead of $1.50…anybody else have that? Is there a $1.50 off one out there that I can still print?

    • Brittney

      classico sauce was an evic for $2.99 coupon is $1.50 for 1 so free!!

      • Becky

        Was that for the larger jar? My $1.50 q was only on the 48oz I think. I haven't gotten my evic e-mail yet so didn't snag that deal last night.

        • Jeri

          Yes the evic is for the larger jar. Normal price at my CLT HT is 4.79 so this was an awesome find!

    • Brittney

      question I bought 2 things of KC bbq when I got home it wasn't in any of my bag on the receipt says I bought 2 can I get them to take it off my receipt or can I get another one??

      • Brittney

    • proudlyamom

      Very great trip to HT this afternoon……got about $35 worth of groceries for 0.30 after a Catalina. Wow! I can't believe I've wasted all these years ignoring coupons and shopping in the impersonal big box stores. Thank you Southern Savers!

    • GagitMommy

      Great shopping trip 91.00 worth paid 22 oop and received 2.50 catalina. Will be going back tomorrow!!! :-)

    • ClaraL

      Just an FYI my meal deal did not ring up for $6.99 the chicken was regular price at $9.99 but it was still a good deal I asked CSR and she said it was $9.99 and not $6.99 and also the value pack of leg quarters was .99/lb not .39/lb any one else have this problem? just wondering.

      • LeAnnaShaw

        Clara-our meal deal was…9.99. And yes still a good deal. But I did notice that the leg quarters were .39…I swear I saw a sign for it! And I thought of this post. But they looked more like wing portions…IDK?

      • Crista

        Even with Jenny's list in hand, I still always grab the flyer up front. If I find something on her list that is not the same in my store, I look in their flyer to see if they just didn't label it. I have one HT that is really bad about not having their stuff marked on the shelves, even though it will ring up right at the register! But sometimes there are regional differences too. My milk is 2.27 instead of 1.99. Still an AWESOME price since milk here is almost 4.00 normally! So grab that flyer and compair at the shelf so you won't be surprised at the register.

    • gamego71

      I wasn't able to go to Harris Teeter this morning to get the super double deals. I tried going after work when they had Triple coupons and all the really good deals were gone. Would it be better to wait until closer to the end of the sale and hope that the store is restocked or go tomorrow???

      • ali

        they restock everynight on items they have sales on so go in the a.m.!

        • Roxybigd

          My husband is a manager for HT and although they do restock every day, they often do not keep an inventory in the back of their store. Trucks come in on different days and are unloaded. These trucks come from the warehouse/distribution center in Indian Trail. Every store is different. I've been trying to find the Mystic Pizzas and can't. My husband said that the warehouse will run out and once they run out no stores will have them. I guess that's the way it is with all products if people buy all of them up in tons. Personally I do not like the “hoarding” concept and would prefer to take 1 or 2 of an item. I have a friend who lives nearby and literally buys a dozen of every item thus hardly any left for others. She keeps her “stock” in Rubbermaid tubs around her house, garage. Interesting but ridiculous.

    • Angela_Marie

      Went through my coupons and weeded out the expired, pulled the $1+, went to HT

      total after vic and evic savings:
      49.84
      17.29 cash paid.

      I had a coupon for everything I bought except for the comet, which I needed and was on sale for $1. I was hoping for some yogurt deals though, and none of the ones I had coupons for were on sale :/ that's ok, the Farm Fresh by me doubles up to $1 everyday, so I'll check there.

      FYI, my HT had Capri-Sun Sunrise for $2.69 on sale, and there is a $1off Q in my SS4/25 insert. It expires 5/23, so if any of you still have it, use it to get the Capri-Sun for only 69c.

    • Jeri

      Totally scored today. Got $80 worth of groceries for $13! Just gotta love those super doubles :)

      • Lori

        I picked up $50 for $3.65. Also hit CVS and Safeway today – total bill was $80 for $10!

        I hit the Harris Teeter in Columbia, MD. I had never shopped HT before, and the nearest is roughly 30-45 minutes from my house. Was a bit nervous, listening to some of the horror stories here. Was happily surprised to find that the cashier hardly glanced at the coupons, and even the DND5 doubled! Learned I need to sign up for eVIC to get the weekly special, but that is just part of the learning curve. Looking forward to going back later in the week to stock up on French's Onions and some other items I picked up more coupons for.

    • ali

      A couple of the coupons above that are printable say not to be doubled, or something like that, like the okinoys yogurt and a couple others. Why would they be put on here and be doubled if the coupon says no doubling?

      • marie

        if the coupon starts with a five, it doubles.
        hth

      • carolyn090

        best policy is to ask before you shop . if you get to the register and they wont double them , then you have to turn around and go buy X items to again reach your 20 ,happened to me once i just left with 10 items that day. not all, but some stores are reading them and holding back the coupons that say dnd no matter what number it starts with .

        that was a seperate single insert in last weeks sunday paper. Surprise coupon. there is a facebook coupon for the sara lee soft and smooth for $.75 off 1

    • frugalscmom

      a few deals i found –
      Capri sun $2.77 – $1 Q in SS 4-25 – Q is for Sunrise, but it worked for other Capri Sun b/c Sunrise was wiped out. Ended up being .77 for each box

      Krunchers potato chips 2.50 – $1Q in SS 4/18 made them .50

      I found a French's mustard and dipping sauce packaged together. It was under $2 and it took the Q from SS 4/11 for dipping sauce so got both free!

      I got a catalina for $3 off Quantum dishwasher – the new automatic thing and they were 9.99B1G1 so I ended up paying 2.99

      One of my most successful trips for SD yet!

      • chrystalm

        I saw the dipping sauce also I didnt think they wld take the coupon on it. Ah Man. I wish I had tried that instead I got the dipping sauce for free. Maybe next time I'll get bolder w/ my coupons.

    • Steph

      There are a couple of people at the Bristow, VA HT that will examine every coupon and look for a reason not to double them. The one lady wouldn't double my Nabisco cracker coupon today although it was coded with a 5. She told me she couldn't double it because it said “Do Not Double.” I left the store and let them keep my Cheese Nips. Most of the checkout people don't care from my experience. I've never had any trouble at the Gainesville VA store it's just 15 minutes away as opposed to 1 minute. Will probably start driving to that one anyway just because their customer service is so much better. Not the first time I've had problems with my coupons at the Bristow location.

      • Ligia

        I had problems at this same HT (Bristow), the manager was really mean to me, I went to HT in the morning and went back in the Afternoon to spent the rest of my coupons (20), and when she saw me she came and said ” You're back! Don't you know that is only 20 coupons per day?” and she said that in a really mean tone, and I replay” I'm here because I didn't have all my 20 coupons this morning….” she was really mean, I don't think manegers should treat their costumers that way…And this HT is really checking all coupons this time, a trying to find reasons to not double….

        • LeAnnaShaw

          I am a HUGE advocate for customer service! And by that I don't believe the customer is always right…But I believe I have the right to NOT be harrassed or have my grocery trip(which is in a way a chore) be made more difficult by the employees of the store I am shopping in. I know for a fact that the district manager of the No. Va stores(I imagine yours would fall within the limits where I am) is a very CS oriented guy. I would go to their web site-and write an email. Give the time you were there-and the persons name. She may be a manager-but she is not doing HT any justice acting like that! There are a LOT of grocery stores we can give our money to!

    • gabrielmorris

      I wanted the Capri Sun Sunrise, but they were out at my store too. I was wondering if I could just get any of the Capri Suns. Is it HT policy to replace an out of stock item with a like item?

      • LeAnnaShaw

        my store is really good about substituting. Once they were out of an item that was on my evic-and they let me sub another brand and still use my coupon! I would ask…or check back on monday-they may restock.

      • Crista

        Yesterday my HT only had one box, so that is what I got, but today when I go in I'm going to get a different kind if they don't have any anymore. If the code on the first part of the bar code matches the code on the first part of the product, it will usually scan just fine and I think I've used this in the past on this item with no problem. I don't do that unless they are out of an item (I try to respect the intent of the coupon) but unless you have a store that looks really hard at each coupon it should go through without even asking management about it. I can't promise that, but if it doesn't then you could tell them they were out and see if they will substitute it manually. My HT's managers will rope the moon for me most of the time so I would expect them to say okay, but again some stores are more strict than others. In this case I would try to just let it scan (less of an ordeal) and see what happens.

        • gabrielmorris

          I think I should have tried it without asking, but I really thought that
          they would let me get another flavor. They wouldn't since there were many
          other flavors available. Our HT is fairly nice, but also fairly strict.
          Maybe they'll have some tomorrow. Thanks for all of your help!

          • Crista

            Do try it. I just did tongith, got three boxes, three different kinds (they were totally out of the sunrise) and it went through just fine. The only way it should be rejected is if they look at the coupon and compair it to your box…even my most strict cashiers don't do that. :O)

            • gabrielmorris

              The code is the same. It went through with no problem. Thanks!

    • Tricia

      I was somewhat disappointed in my first shopping experience using the advice of Southern Savers. I never found a tearpad or hangtag coupon on items that you said would have them (Harris Teeter and Publix) and the sale price on a lot of items was higher than what you quoted so that using a coupon to make it free or less than 50 cents didn't happen. I feel like I wasted a lot of time.

      • Crista

        I'm going to assume you didn't mean that as rudely as it came across. You learn as you go and Jenny does a FAB job on this site. I'm not sure how she gets it all done (and shop and have time with her family!)and it's FREE to us. I've gone to many coupon sites and hers is BY FAR the best and easiest to use (and I'm including a pay site in that comparison of sites as well).

        Now in response to some of your concerns (because I'm assuming that is why you posted and not because you were being mean)….

        The tearpads and hang tags are not available everywhere and people take them, so they can be gone quickly because some people hoard them. I don't usually count on getting those. Jenny posts ANY POSSIBLE deal she knows about. She doesn't even have a HT where she lives, but she still spends her time putting it all up here for us. Usually hang tags and such are hit or miss AND blinkies (the ones in the dispensers) I pick up whenever I'm in the store and hold onto them for the right sale. **I get mine at Food Lion and sometimes Lowes Food because they will double. The ones at HT don't**By the time that comes along (and Jenny posts it here ) they aren't usually still available in the store. But again, she posts what's out there, so you will know where to look for them (what type of coupon you are looking for) Another example would be when she posts a printable. Often, by the time that sale comes out, that printable is not still available, but if you printed them out when they were, you know what you are looking for in your coupons (a printable, not a clipped coupon). It's the same with the store tags. As far as the difference in prices. I believe (and forgive me if I'm wrong) but I believe that Jenny lives in the middle of South Carolina (again, and doesn't have a HT). I live on the coast of NC….there are many regional differences in prices. Sometimes she notes if she knows there is going to be a difference (like with the milk this week, she wrote $1.99 (regional), at my HT it's 2.27) but she isn't going to know that for most items. This list is soooo complete I can't imagine how she does what she does, but she can not cover all bases for all people over all regions that HT exists. As you do this longer you will get use to the differences, you have to give it time. It drives me nuts when coupons are listed that don't come out in my paper (I'm so bummed by some of the great deals I miss) or I'll get the coupon but the amount will be different and not as good. I certainly don't blame Southern Savers for that though!

        If you have any questions as you go, please do feel free to ask them. To me couponing was really hard before I knew the ropes, but once you get into it, it gives you a buzz! LOL

        • Brittney

          to christa at the bottom comment. You got that right the buzz is giving me a headache right now. I can't stop couponing for looking for coupons. totally addicting

          • Crista

            LOL I'm 5 months pregnant and I was really sick for the first 4 months so I got totally out of couponing. I didn't feel good enough to look for the coupons, much less do the shopping (I even completely missed one triples during that time!). So I'm just getting back into it. My shelves were bare and my freezers empty…now they are all full! and I have a HUGE chest freezer, I NEVER thought I would fill that baby up! LOL Now I just hope we don't get a hurricane that knocks out the power! LOL I'm exhausted tonight, but it's really NICE to back to it. I was spending so much money (over budget every month) and my shelves were BARE!

        • AmyFMSC

          Very good explanations girls! The only other thing I would add is about the price differences. It seems like everything in my HT is about 30-50 cents more than what is listed here so, if I really want to know what I am going to be spending, I just go to Harris Teeter's website to the Express Lane and find out what the prices are at my store before I go. That way I won't be disappointed when I get there and something wasn't as great a deal as I thought it was going to be. Jenny does an AMAZING job and now that I have been doing this for a few months, I appreciate it more and more. My grocery bill hasn't gone down much, but I have literally twice as much food in the house – and I have put on nearly five pounds – which isn't such a great side effect….

      • Rebekah

        Tricia–I am sorry that you did not have a positive experince, but please keep in mind that Jenny provides this as a ” guide ” for us, and she clearly states that prices are often regional ( meaning that prices will vary per location ). I live in SE Georgia, and alot of times the prices listed on here are not the prices for my stores. I ALWAYS use this list a ” guide ” and use the actual store ad to make my list in order to get the prices to match with what I want to spend. If you are just starting out, it take several months ( or it did for me ) to get really going with it mainly bc you should not use many of the coupons till several weeks after receiving them. ” Tearpads ” and ” blinkies ” are not in all stores ( really are a hit and miss at times ), and when ever you see them, grab them right then bc it will often be several weeks later that you will use them. Please don't give up on Southern Savers right yet..I have been doing it for about 4 months now, and just in the last few months have I been able to spend literally $100 or less for a family of three to eat for a MONTH !! And, NO we are not vegetarians, and this includes meats that I normally get from Harvey's. This week I am spending a little more than usual bc of the SD at HT, But the ” stock ” piling will pay for itself.

      • LeAnnaShaw

        Tricia-I am sorry you had a bad time. I don't ever count on tearpads-or getting coupons in the store though. I am not sure who is responsible for putting them out. Is it the grocer-or the manq? But I have found that Harris Teeter rarely has them(they did on one huge rubbermaid display once..but again-that had to have come like that from rubbermaid) And when they do-I have seen people take gads of them-so they do go fast. I rely mostly on my printables and my own coupon binder. Also remember that her stores may have slightly higher/lower than yours. Depends on where you live. I also had many a feeling of 'wasted' time-until I the hang of this. And this site is the most comprehensive one I have found. I hope your next trip will be better…you can save a LOT of money!

    • DD

      New to H.T. Paid $39 for $90 worth of products, not great but learning their policies. Found out after the fact that they do not stack competitors coupons. I think I save more at Publix with the B1G1 deals, stacked with competitors coupons and $5 off $25 from Rite Aide.

      • Crista

        That is great, especially if you are just starting. That is the kind of receipts I'm seeing too, because I haven't been ablet to coupon in a while and my shelves were bare. I'm buying stuff that is not “free” but I need it and the price is still good.

        I don't have a publix, I've had to quit looking at those match ups because I was so green! LOL

    • Em

      Hoping someone can help me out…. Can you use the Red Baron “pan pizza” coupon for the eVIC special, even though it didn't appear that this type was part of the special at my HT? Thanks!!

      • Crista

        Probably, if the first half of the bar code (after the little 5) matches the first part of the bar code on the product it should go through. I have bought ONE product in over a year that that wasn't true. The only other way it would be rejected is if the cashier looks at it and says no and won't scan it. Some people use coupons for completely different products because of this codeing (like a $3 off pool cleaner from arm and hammer for a thing of detergent) others won't use a q. for anything but the exact product. It's an ethical question. I personally try to use the coupon for what it's meant for because I don't want to take advantage and risk companies putting out less q's. But I have on occasion (like tonight with the capri sun sunrise) I will use a coupon that is a little off if they are out of the exact product I was trying to buy. My store was out of the capri sun sunrise, so I used it on another flavor, but it was still the same product.

        Hope that helps!

        • Em

          Thanks, Crista! I wondered how that all worked!

        • Lisah

          That is cheating the system and that is why the companies are working to code their coupons better. You are stealing.

          • Tara

            I was thinking the same thing, Lisah. Just yesterday I read what JENNY herself said about barcodes. I will post it here: It borders on illegal to go into decoding coupons and I am not up for that. Please no linking to other posts that discuss this either.

            (Side note: any one that loves to decode coupons to use it to buy items that are not intended by the manufacturer your days a numbered as all coupons will switch to a new barcoding system Jan 01 of next year.)

            Those are Jenny's words.

            • Crista

              Wow, way to read my comment! The reason I know the codes is because I double check to make sure I'm getting the right product, for instance tonight I had a q. for degree girls. I couldn't find that, but I found degree womens, so I looked at the code to see if that was the same thing…I found it was NOT the same thing, so I didn't pick it up and go through the line and back up other customers because of the mistake. I believe my post was clear that it was an ethical question and I don't try to “get away” with stuff. I was trying to be nice and not judgemental on what other's do, but at the same time show the sides of an argument. I have had managers tell me it was okay to substitute if they were out of a product and I only subbed a flavor, not a completely different product! Thanks for pointing out Jenny's link…i know people like you have jumped on her in the past over a misunderstanding so at least you only jumped on me! LOL Believe me the Jan. change will NOT affect my shopping, but thanks for your concern.

            • AmyFMSC

              Yeah Crista, you gotta watch out for the “Coupon Police” who troll this site & are very quick to cast stones. As someone said in another post in defense of his/her own comment, “this is no thieves den.” Most of us are sincere and ethical in our coupon use, and I get so tired of reading posts from people who call others cheaters, stealers, criminals, unethical, etc. But, I guess they are trying to save the world one coupon at a time….

            • Crista

              Thanks Amy!

      • Brittney

        yes the first 5 digist of the bar code are the same. I used this on the jimmy deal delight breakfast sandwiches the delights weren't onsale but the regular ones were for 3/10 making it $3 a peice my coupon was $1 for 1 so I spent $1 each

    • Debbie

      New to southernsavers. It's a really great site but a little overwhelming at first. I had my first shopping experience at Harris Teeters this week and had a few questions. Hope someone can help me. First, not all of my coupons super doubled. Do they only give you up to the price of the product? Second, the cashier told me I could only buy 3 of one item at a time with 3 coupons on that day. Is that accurate? I could'nt find that in their policy. Third, I feel like I am overspending right now as I am trying to learn this system. Is that typical when you are first starting out? Thanks for any advice.

      • AmyFMSC

        Hi Debbie:

        1) Yes – it's only up to the price of the product – HT doesn't give overages.

        2) It is in their coupon policy that they “double up to three identical items with manufacturer coupon; additional coupons for like item will be honored at face value.” Jenny may have a link to it somewhere on SouthernSavers, but if you Google “Harris Teeter coupon policy” you can read the entire thing. Some Harris Teeters aren't as strict as others on the policy – sounds like yours may stick to the rules a little more than mine does.

        3) I've been doing this about three months now, and I am still spending about the same amount as before, but I have soooo much more food, toiletries, cleaning products, etc. in the house. I can't believe how much money I have wasted over the years by not couponing – but I could have never matched up coupons the way Jenny does for us.

      • Debbie

        Amy,
        Thank you so much. I am sure as I learn the system it will get easier.
        Thanks,
        Debbie

        • Crista

          It definitely will…not necessarily less time consuming LOL but definitely easier! LOL

      • Crista

        It only doubles up the the break even, so you can get it free, but they won't apply overage to you. The only time I've ever gotten an overage at HT is if my coupon's face value was more then the price of the product before it doubled. You can only use 3 coupons (like from ads, blinkies, peelies, etc.) If the coupon is a printable, you can only use 2. For me the overspending was normal. I didn't really overspend, but i wasn't reducing my bill at first, but my shelves were filling up and my kids were more excited about their snacks going to school! LOL Once you get in the groove and get a stockpile going, you won't need to buy nearly as much and you can hold out for only the BEST deals.

        Hope that HELPS!

      • Angela_Marie

        it took a while for me to get used to the system, I had to be careful that I didn't end up with a fridge full of yogurt and a cabinet full of chips only! I think PART of saving money with the coupon system is to know that 'spending' money, is NEVER 'saving' money if you don't need/want the item. Some weeks I'm happy to have lots of extra junk food, odd papergoods, different toiletries, some weeks what I really need is some fresh beef and green vegetables. Find a balance, and you can have the food you need, and 7 extra tubes of toothpaste as well :) …also, HT isn't always the cheapest, even on sale, even with a coupon.

      • LeAnnaShaw

        Debbie-I agree w/ what the others say too! In the beginning I felt the same as you. I felt I was buying things and spending more money to get these deals. However-after just a few months…I have evened out. I won't buy deoderant, toothpaste sanitary products and pay for them. I have gotten myself a bit of a supply-all free! The three coupon policy is in effect at my store-and they only allow 2 internet coupons a day too. And they will only double/trip 20. I sometimes go in twice(not back to back) and use my adult sons card. 1/2 of the grocery's I get go to his household anyways! But my HT is only 2 minutes away and not a big deal. By your next triple/super double…you will be so surprised at how 'old hat' you are. I went in on Wed morning..was going to get there at 6(super doubles started at 7) but realized I did not even need all that time…I got in at 6:45 and was checking out at 7:04! Got my 20 items-plus milk and eggs. So another thing you need to know-right now you spend maybe lots of time…soon it will be 20 min in and out! But it is such a HIGH when those #'s are going down….lol! Good luck to you!!!

    • Newbie

      I printed the Mystic Pizza coupon and told a friend who realized that it is a copy. It has the same bar code every time. Not sure of the source, but you may want to check the validity of the coupon.

      • Crista

        I was worried about that coupon, because it's a pdf and you can print it as often as you want. So I went to the mystic pizza website and it is there, exactly like that. So I used it with a clear conscience! LOL Go check it out at their site.

        • Amy

          I went to the website, too. It just didn't look right. I was so happy to see it there :-)

          • They would not take the mystic coupon at my HT stating it was counterfeit. They also will not take BOGO internet coupons. Made me so irritated. Now I see they have it on the Mystic website :(

      • Brittney

        its on their website

    • Angela_Marie

      Is anyone else finding that their stores don't check/don't care about things like specified sizes or flavors? My HT makes a habit out of NOT carrying the items specified in the coupons, and also my HT advertised specials seem higher priced than a lot of what I'm seeing on these lists, so out of frustration I've just tried my luck with small/cheaper/available sizes/flavors of the same brands, with about 100% success.

    • LeAnnaShaw

      Does anyone know where I can get a coupon for the super pretzel soft pretzels? I have seen them, but can't seem to find them again. I knew I should have printed them. Maybe I have the wrong zip? IDK. HT has these 1/2 price and our family LOVES them! thanks for any help

      I had so many nice surprises shopping today. Some lovely person left very good coupons next to products I needed! I LOVE that. Thanks guys for being so awesome! I love the “pay it forward” kind of attitude. That's what makes couponing so fun.

    • Jacinta

      There a coupon for .75 on coupons.com for the Nature Own Premium Bread

    • Kristen

      Can you match a HT coupon that printed at the register with a coupon you've clipped or can you only use one? I'm guessing just one b/c the HT printed ones say manuf coupon but wanted to check. Thank you!

      Old Orchard,

      Hi folks,

      I'm confused. The SS lady mentions that Old Orchard coupon is in May All You mag, but I don't see it anywhere.

      Any guidance w/ this one appreciated.

      • Brittney

        It was towards the back on the magazine

      • Jeri

        It's at the very back (maybe the last few pages) on the bottom right hand side.

        • Jane

          Thank you so much. I have looked in the index numerous times and even through the magazine to no avail. Thanks to you I quickly found it..

    • I have made several trips to my HT this week and today when I went they refused my Mystic coupons. I was not happy because all week they have accepted them and why now are they not. They refused to explain why to me. I came home and wrote HT and asked for an answer. How am I supposed to know what coupons to use or not use if they change their policy mid sale or every other time I am there? This is the 2nd time this has happened ot me. It seems that they don't like that the item is free and so they stop taking it. I have been to the Mystic website and it appears to be a completely legit coupon. If HT is worried it is a fraudulent one they should contact Mystic and then post a sign at their freezer stating they won't honor it and why. I am a very honest coupon user and very loyal to one HT. I won't be going back to that one tomorrow for my next set of items.

      • Brittney

        It seems to me that each store is different regarding their coupon policy it doesn't seem fair that one store will take it while the other not.

      • LeAnnaShaw

        Sarah-I am glad you contacted the CS…..I totally agree w/ you and understand your angst. I am a big proponant of standing up for what is right. From my dealings w/ HT…before couponing-I complained about a person in the meat dept who had been horribly rude to me(even lying that they did not have something). They were beyond apologetic. It bordered on irritating me…they called and called. His boss-then the store manager-the district manager-some other manager..over and over. They asked my experience..they assured me he was wrong and they were sorry. They even sent me a $25 gift cert! I do NOT believe the customer is always right…that is archaic in my opinion! BUT if you are….then you deserve an apology or something!!!! Please let me know what happens….

      • stephanie

        you can find out coupons ht takes the complte coupon policy is on the website harristeeter.com and it explains the rules and that mystic coupon looks fake thats what ive heard i work at harris teeter. we have been taking those coupons tho as long as it has a date and everything on it it should be fine idk y they didnt take it

      How frequently does HT have the super doubles on the coupons? Once a quarter, twice a year?

      THX

      • jess

        Here lately they've been having either super double or triples once a month. They could have super doubles two months in a row or super and then triples. No pattern to which they have when.

    • LeAnnaShaw

      I just got back from a wonderful trip to HT….got my 20plus items for under $15!(some q's were 1/2 items!) I saw on the bottom of my reciept that the weber seasoning is evic price of .99-limit two. Today there was a q in the paper for 1/2. Free seasoning! Also-I don't know how I missed that 44oz classico on evic for 2.99…w/ my 1.50-again FREE!!! And on a good note…one of my q's beeped so dude had to call over the manager on duty. She is always 'cool' to me..I never got could figure out if he hates couponers-or what her problem is…But today she looked at me and said 'I think you are one of the only people that come in here and use your q's properly!' WOW! To a couponer…that is the BEST compliment..IMO! Turns out that they do realize it when you are on the up and up! I was telling her about the deals I get for diapers at CVS sometimes…b/c the manager will tell me when he is going to be putting them out. I found out she has a baby…I told her that I will be on the lookout for her! And I think I will print and give her some of these baby q's! I could not feel prouder of myself though! That compliment meant the world to me….

      • Becky

        That is a really nice compliment. I wish more managers were so encouraging to the “good” couponers. I had an HT cashier last week tell me that I “totally rock!” after she saw my total drop and it about made my day ;)

      • stephanie

        This is wonderful! There's a great manager at the HT near my office who loves to share coupon tips. She's made a point to come over to me when she sees me in line and give the me the head's up on upcoming triples and super doubles. It's nice to have a manager in the “coupon sisterhood” LOL

    • RitaandSweetie

      Question: I attempted to purchase an item on markdown that was $2.17. I had a $2 coupon and the manager said the coupon was for too much (this was NOT an internet coupon). He said HT doesn't take coupons on items that are marked down. Is this true? I have read the coupon policy and I do NOT see this noted.

      THX

      • Amy

        I had the same thing happen. I just recently started to look through the clearance carts and was tickled that there were several items I had coupons for. When I went to buy them, the manager 'allowed' me to do so, but told me they don't like to do this and made me feel like I was doing something unethical. So now I'm not sure what to do. I don't think I'll buy clearance with a coupon at Harris Teeter again (just because I feel bad), but I wish it was clearly in their coupon policy…

      • Lindsay

        I've had the same problem with getting HT to allow coupons on markdowns in the past. I finally gave up because it has to be done manually and you usually get a lecture from the manager about it–if they even allow it at all. Kroger still allows coupons on markdowns, though.

    • chrystalm

      The healthy balance is buy2 get 3 free. I have 2 free coupons. How would that work will I have to pay for the other 3 that are supposed to be free. Does HT net down the other 3 products price so everything rings up as a price even though its free and will I be charged for the net down price of the other 3 iteams.

      • deb

        You just pay for one. I used the same coupon

        • Amy

          Well I always have an bad experience at HT. I went there this weekend and had the bogo coupon for the juice. And of course they would not let me use the coupon because they gave three bottles away with the purchase of two. I just don't get the HT I go to they act as though I am steeling from them.

          • Brittney

            ahh blah blah blah. maybe you just got a grumpy cashier person. I must have a very good Harris teeter i've never had a problem and the employees have been super nice and very helpful.

    • Kazzandra

      I had a peculiar experience today, the last day of Super Doubles. The cashier took my sorted coupons, which was over the 20 that would double, and resorted them so that the ones under a dollar would be scanned first, and thus double, and the ones over a dollar would scan last, not doubling, and essentially making my Super Doubles less super and more like, well, doubles. This was at the Harris Teeter in Boone, NC. This isn't in the coupon policy, so what can one do? I can't help but feel a little cheated, though.

    • They would not take the mystic coupon at my HT stating it was counterfeit. They also will not take BOGO internet coupons. Made me so irritated. Now I see they have it on the Mystic website :(
