Super Double Coupons at Harris Teeter

I just saved enough money at Harris Teeter to fill up my car at the gas pump. I saved $41.35 in coupons. It’s SUPER DOUBLE COUPON WEEK at Harris Teeter. This means the store will double coupons up to $1.98. I had a lot of $1.00 off coupons that I printed off from online sites. Each of those $1 coupons became $2 at the cash register!

A lot of people ask me if I just wind up buying things I don’t need or use in order to save the coupon. The answer is No! I am very selective and only take coupons to the store for items that my family likes and uses. Today I bought milk, bottled water, juice, cereal, yogurt, soup, vegetable broth, olive oil, granola bars and other items with my coupons.

Before you go, check out the coupon rules/restrictions at Harris Teeter. For instance, they will only double 20 coupons per household per day.

The Asheville Harris Teeter is located at 1378 Hendersonville Road across from Carolina Day School. Check the store locator to find a Harris Teeter near you.
