Reminder: Super Doubles at Harris Teeter

Bargains & Savings: HT Super Double Coupons

I received this reminder in my inbox today in regards to Harris Teeter’s Super Doubles Coupon week…
Hi SavvyDollar friends,
Sorry it has been a while since my last email.  Having a new baby in the house seems to have impacted our schedule (imagine that)!  🙂
At any rate, I hope you all are ready for a Super Doubles week at Harris Teeter.  You can find lots of freebies and great deals in the forum at this link:
Also, I thought I’d use this opportunity for a little encouragement.  I’ve seen some really interesting posts in theSavvydollar forums recently about coupon fatigue.  I agree, it can get tiring — but remember that coupons are not the only way to trim your expenditures.  There are all sorts of creative ways to save a few dollars here and there, and several thousand by the end of the year. 
A few years ago, in the early days of SavvyDollar, I wrote a post with 31 ways to save money.  So if you are feeling a little weary with the scissors these days, here are some other ideas to get you started.  I would love to see some more of your creative ideas posted.
 Keep on saving…

Meal Deal Monday: Harris Teeter

Harris Teeter has a promotion that they do where you can purchase an entire meal for usually under $10. The first one I did was back in June with the Rosina Meatballs special. How it works is that you purchase “x” number of items and get “x” number of items free to make a complete meal.

In June I participated in the Meal Deal by purchasing and receiving:

  • Buy 32oz Rosina Meatballs
  • Get Free…
    • 13oz Celentano cheese Ravioli
    • 24oz Newman’s own pasta sauce
    • 11oz Pepperidge Farms Garlic Texas Toast
    • one 2 liter Pepsi product
  • Total cost was $7.75 which saved at least $10.42 before taxes

This week I choose to purchase the breakfast special:

  • Buy 12oz Hormel Bacon and 12oz Johnsonville breakfast links
  • Get free…
    • 1 dz HT Grade A large eggs
    • 1/2 gallon HT premium orange juice
    • 20oz Simply Potatoes hash browns
    • 6ct HT english muffins
  • Total cost was 8.99 saving at least $8.26 before taxes…but then there were coupons!
    • On the Hormel bacon was coupon for .40 off Pillsbury grands biscuits.
      • they were on sale some $2 for two and some $2 for four
      • there was a “blinkie coupon” to get .75 off of three
      • there was a in store “penquin coupon” for the simply potatoes $1 off two
    • that brought my total cost with taxes to only $13.34


    • I recently purchased a newspaper subscription and received a $10 HT card
    • I transferred a prescription to HT and got $20 added to my vic card

I would say this turned out to be a great combination of watching your budget by participating in couponing, promotions and sales at places you were going to shop anyway. Thanks to the great staff at the 1151 Tryon Village Drive location for their customer service each time I shop. They know me almost by name now! But they always make sure their customers get all the qualifying purchases, and in this case mine today were FREE!

ideal & HT Super Doubles

On our final trip for Super Doubles at Harris Teeter last night we were finally able to locate one of the newest no calorie sweeteners called ideal.  It’s suitable for people with diabetes, and contains the equivalent of two teaspoons of sugar in each tiny green packet.

This one is a welcome to me because all other artificial sweeteners leave a bad aftertaste for me and I haven’t been able to use anything other than the very expensive agave nectar. As usual, I looked for the best bargain on this sweetner to try and got a coupon for $1 off and combined it with the BOGO and super double sale. That made the coupon go up to $2 off, plus the buy one get one free special. They came out to only .83 cents for two boxes of 50 instead of the regular retail price of $2.79 per box!!

(6) Yakisoba Japanese Noodles
(1) Uncle Ben’s rice
(4) Ideal sweetener (bogo sale)
(1) pork butt for bbq (markdown $2.26)
(2) gorton grilled fillets (vic sale)

There were $1 coupons doubled for each item making the out of pocket cost only $2.64. So we basically only paid for the pork which will be used for some Memorial Day BBQ. If you need help shopping for your weekend party, just contact us. WE LOVE TO SHOP!!
