Big week between the aisles!

Harris Teeter will be holding their Super Doubles Coupon event starting Wednesday plus a new Publix opens in Mint Hill!

How to make the most of Harris Teeter’s Super Double Coupon Event

This is a great opportunity to build your stockpile and even find lots of freebies to donate.


1. They will double coupons with a value of $2.00 or less. At the register when presenting a $2 off coupon, you will save $4

2. Use your VIC card

3. You can only use 3 coupons for the same item

4. Only 20 coupons for each transaction/day. This means that with your VIC card you can use the triple coupon special on 20 coupons per day. You cannot use your VIC card at one location on 20 coupons and then go across town and use it again on another 20 coupons. You can use 15 coupons at one HT location and the 5 more at another HT location on the same day.

Best Practices:

o Visit and and to get more coupons.

o Buy an extra copy of the Charlotte Observer.

o Ask friends and neighbors and trade unused coupons, create Coupon Karma!

o Plan your trips and know what you want to get before you enter the store.

o Plan to visit more than once since stock can be depleted.

o Visit the websites and Facebook pages of your favorite manufacturers like, Kellogg’s, General Mills, Purina, Pillsbury, Dannon or Crest to find extra coupons.

o Create and maintain good Coupon Karma - Please do not be a “shelf clearer”. Have your coupons in a nice neat stack to give to the cashier. Don’t try to check the system buy not following the rules. It just isn’t nice Be considerate of other shoppers and to store personnel will go a big way PLUS if you have a coupon for an item that you do not plan to use feel free to offer to other in the store or tuck next to the item!
