The word among die-hard coupon shoppers is that Harris Teeter will offer a rare triple coupon event starting Wednesday, Sept. 11.
No one has yet to see a circular, but the rumors have been so consistent and so persistent that I wanted to pass along the information -- just in case.
We haven't seen a triples event in a good long while so, if it pans out, this could be a big opportunity to score deals much different from those available during a Super Double coupon event.
I'll keep you posted and let you know when a circular surfaces.
In the meantime, I recommend:
- Getting your coupon organizers up to date, clipping new coupons and purging any expired ones.
- Scanning the online sites for coupons to print. Look for coupons for .50, .75 and .85 off a single item.
- Loading digital coupons from the Harris Teeter website onto your loyalty card. These e-vic coupons can be "stacked" or combined with a paper coupon for additional savings.
- Loading digital coupons from SavingStar.com onto your loyalty cards. These coupons may also be used with paper coupons for extra savings.
And finally, here are a few tips and a review of Harris Teeter's Triple couponing rules:
- You may triple up to 20 coupons per day per household. No more than three identical coupons. No more than two identical Internet coupons. Coupons with a face value of up to and including 99 cents will triple. That means a 75-cent coupon will triple to $2.25.
- If you want to score the best deals, I recommend arriving at your store about 6:30 a.m. That will give you a half hour to shop and you'll be ready to check out at 7 a.m. when the promotion officially begins.
- Don't expect your "DO NOT Double/Triple" coupons to triple. Harris Teeter's policy states the chain won't triple them. If one happens to triple, consider it a bonus.
