Overview: Harris Teeter is a chain of grocery stores located in the Southeast (North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, Maryland, and Delaware.) It is a fairly high-end store but generous sales, specials, and coupon deals make it possible to shop at Harris Teeter on a budget. If you just head in with your list you’re likely to spend a premium here, but planning ahead and keeping an eye out for deals can lead to significant savings.
How To Save: Sign up for a VIC (“very important customer” – don’t you feel special already?) card either online at www.harristeeter.com or in the store and have it scanned at the register each time you check out to take advantage of special savings. Look for large discounts on meat and poultry, and Buy One Get One Free offers throughout the store. Sometimes you’ll even catch a Buy 2 Get 3 Free deal – great if it’s an item you use regularly.
You can also register your VIC card online in the eVIC program for additional savings. A list of weekly specials and eVIC specials are delivered via email if you provide your address and can help with menu planning before heading to the store. Note: write down exactly what the eVIC promotion is – the brand, size, etc, as there aren’t always signs in the display at the store.
Harris Teeter doubles coupons up to .99 cents face value every day. There are even special triple coupon promotions from time to time.
Quick Tip: Check out the fantastic made to order subs near the deli section. There are daily specials for just $3.49 for a 6 inch, and each Friday all 12 inch subs are $4.99 (additional charge for Boars Head or other high quality meats if available). (As of 7/7/11) Learn more.
