My Harris Teeter Super Doubles Trip 1/1/14

Disclosure: This post may contain an affiliate link.


Happy New Year!

I hope you all found your Harris Teeter well stocked for the first day of Super Doubles in 2014!  LuLu and I finally headed up to the store around 9am and were able to pick up everything except Old Orchard juice and Hormel Cure ham.

My receipt is a mess.  I knew my total was high at the store but couldn’t figure out why.  I realized in-store that my Secret Clinical e-VIC didn’t come off, so I had that one fixed.  Once I got home, I realized they rang up 3 Ore-Ida Simply (I bought 2) and 2 more e-VIC coupons didn’t come off (Ivory and Downy).  I’ll head back up for my $5.79 refund later today.

See all the Harris Teeter Super Doubles matchups HERE

Hefty Kitchen Bags $6.49 (expensive but I needed them)
Minute Maid Juice $1.99
2 Ivory Soap $0.75 each (should be)
Downy $1.45 (should be) I wanted free & clear-others are free after coupons
Secret Clinical $0.99
Head & Shoulders $1.99
Pantene Expert $0.99
Ore-Ida Simply $2.29 each (plus submit for $0.75 ibotta)
2 Pillsubry Cookies Dough $0.50 each
2 Hormel Rev $0.99 each
J&J tape $1.89
J&J gauze $0.89
Febreze Air Effects FREE
2 Scope Rinse FREE
Vidal Sassoon Shampoo FREE
Gillette Fusion Shave Gel FREE

Total Should be $25.75 + tax
Total Saving Should be $73.37

Definitely not close to my best trip, but I was able to get a few things we wanted/needed.

How did you do?

HUGE CVS Money Making Haul!!  Check This Out!!!

Wow!  This had to be my BEST shopping trip ever at ANY store!  I did end up purchasing items that I did not intend to, but because of the $50.00 ECB I needed to increase my final price on the first transaction.  All those items though will be donated which is the best part!

I mentioned the Money Making Paypal Master Card deal earlier in a FB post!  I do believe this may be a regional deal so look for the signs at your store or at the online ad.  This deal was not in my ad that I received in my newspaper, but it was at my store here in Hampton.

Transaction #1:

(1) Paypal Master Card $150.00 value
Add $150.00 to card +  $4.95
Total: $154.95
Receive $50.00 ECB ($45.05 Money Maker!)

***The Master Card can be used anywhere!  Use it to pay bills, do your Christmas shopping, purchase gift cards or whatever you please!  A $4.95 fee will be charged in 48 hours and then once monthly after that so make sure to use this fast so you can avoid the fees.

Transaction #2:  I purchased everything that did not have coupons in this transaction in order to keep the final total higher in order to use the $50 Ecb, thus keeping the total of transactions lower.

My Shopping Trips (Harris Teeter Super Doubles)

Disclosure: This post may contain an affiliate link.

Honestly, my Harris Teeter Super Doubles shopping trips have been cra-zy this week. Sadly, no pictures. I still have a few more trips planned, but so far I’ve spent around $20 on over $150 worth of groceries . . . and $13 of that was butter, bread and pears. We are pretty stocked up on free Vintage Seltzer/toiletries/chocolate and cheap cereal/frozen meals.

While I usually don’t take advantage of the pizza and burrito deals, I am starting to add a few things to my freezer for after Baby #3’s arrival when Mama doesn’t feel like cooking :D

Shopping Trips:

16 Vintage Seltzer – FREE!
4 Chex Cereal
1 Cheerios
4 Wheat Thins
2 Lindt Chocolate – FREE!
10 Monterrey Burritos – FREE!
2 State Fair Corn Dogs
2 Palemero Pizza
4 Nestle Toll House Morsels
2 Furmanos Tomatoes – FREE!
2 Cover Girl Eye Enhancers – FREE (this was a $4 money maker!)
1 Pampers Pull Ups
1 Olay Body Wash – FREE!
1 Scope Mouth Wash – FREE!
1 Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant – FREE!
1 Gillette Shave Prep – FREE!
3 Snickers Bites – FREE!
1 HT Wide Pan Bread
4 Pears
4 1lb HT Salted Butter

I only noted one mistake on my receipts, and that was that my $1/3 Vintage Seltzer EVIC coupon didn’t come off :( I’m going to see if they’ll fix it next time I’m in the store if I can find the receipt.

Lastly, because I forgot to take pictures of my shopping trips, and because I am shameless :) here is a cute picture of my kids in their Halloween costumes:


Meet David, the Shepard who defeated Goliath and his sheep, Woosy.
They kill me! It was their first time trick or treating and they had a BLAST.


My Harris Teeter Super Doubles Shopping Trip 10/30

Disclosure: This post may contain an affiliate link.


I’m super excited about my Harris Teeter Super Doubles shopping trip this morning!

I scored awesome deals and it’s a great example of how coupons can help you save on items that everyone uses – not just junk food.  I purchased laundry detergent, deodorant, makeup, tuna, water and more for super cheap; even FREE!  Coupons aren’t all fruit snacks and boxed meals as some skeptics claim :)

One thing I made sure to do today was to use the coupons that expire tomorrow.  I then moved on to a few things that I thought might sell out like the mascara, burritos and popcorn.  I also grabbed the tuna pouches today,  so I could throw them in hubby’s lunch this week.

Thinking ahead to Christmas, the white chocolate has now been put away for hubby’s stocking – one of his all time favorite foods is white chocolate :)

See all the Harris Teeter Super Doubles Deals here.

2 HT Organic Milk Half Gallon = $7
1 Febreze Noticables = $2 moneymaker after e-VIC coupon
4 Vintage Seltzer = $1 moneymaker after e-VIC coupon
1 Scope Rine = $0.51 moneymaker after e-VIC coupon
2 Covergirl Flamed Mascara = FREE
1 Secret Clinical Deodorant = FREE
4 El Monteray Burritos = FREE
2 Pop secret = FREE
2 Lindt white chocolate bars = FREE
1 Febreze Air Effects = FREE
1 Febreze  Car Vent = FREE
4 Starkist Tuna Creations = $1
4 Starkist Tuna Salad = $2
1 Tide Detergent = $0.99
1 Jose Ole Mini Tacos Box = $1

Total Paid = $9.87
Total Saved $97.24

Please note that Harris Teeter doesn’t give cash back so if you have items that are going to be a moneymaker after the e-VIC coupon, you need to have other items to cover the overage.

*The Hanbury store  in Chesapeake is well stocked.  Everything seems to still be in stock at 10am and they had lots of endcaps, displays and extra boxes of items around the store.

How did you do?
