Harris Teeter is a couponer’s dream store! They are super coupon-friendly, have the most amazing sales, they double coupons everyday AND they offer digital coupons that you can click for even more savings on top of everything else. They also give seniors an extra 5% off on Thursdays. Finally, be sure to download their free App, as it comes with many helpful features.
Each week we do an easy-to-follow list of the BEST Harris Teeter deals and we match the sales to the coupons for you. You can find that list here. We even give you many of the printable coupons for FREE to help you save the most! Sales on meat, produce and grocery items are also included.
Getting Started Saving at Harris Teeter
First, visit customer service to apply for your free VIC card. This will entitle you to all the great weekly sales and specials that Harris Teeter offers. You will need your driver’s license, as they do have to verify your address to make sure there is only one VIC card per family. Be sure to use it every time you shop at Harris Teeter to save money.
Second, go online to harristeeter.com and sign up for EVIC. This stands for “electronic or email VIC” and means that Harris Teeter will start emailing you each Wednesday with their weekly specials and on Friday with their Saturday and bonus weekend specials. You will be entered into a weekly grocery money giveaway but the best benefit is that you will also have access to their amazing EVIC digital coupons, which are coupons that you can click and load to your Harris Teeter VIC card (we’ll talk more about those later :))
Third, download the free Harris Teeter mobile App (optional). It is super handy and very easy to use. With it you can see Harris Teeter’s deals and click EVIC coupons on your Smartphone. You can also pull up a screen version of your VIC card to hand to the cashier to scan rather than carrying around your VIC card.
Harris Teeter Sales
Harris Teeter’s sales run Wednesdays-Tuesdays. They also do many long-term sales that go on for weeks or even months. You can always check the sales tag in-store to see when a sale will end, which is super handy. That way, you know whether you need to go ahead and stock up on an item now or if you could wait a few weeks and get it later.
Find out what’s on sale by viewing the sales in the weekly sales flyer paper at the front of the store, online at harristeeter.com, in your weekly Harris Teeter email, in the Harris Teeter App or visit dellysdeals.com for a full list of what’s on sale each week matched with coupons.
Harris Teeter runs many B1G1 free sales each week. At Harris Teeter, B1G1 free items ring up half price, so you do not have to buy both unless you want both. If you buy one item, it will ring up half price. B1G1 items are listed on the shelf as B1G1 free with the regular price written, so just cut the price posted in half if it’s B1G1 free. You CAN use coupons on both items in the buy one get one free sale.
Harris Teeter also loves Buy 2 Get 3 Free (B2G3 Free) sales. There are usually 1-5 items each week on sale for B2G3 free. With these, you DO have to buy all five items in one trip, since the first two items ring up full price but the last three are free. If you accidentally get only 4 items, your discount will not come off, so be sure to get five if you are taking advantage of B2G3 free.
EVIC Member’s Only Weekly Special. Each week Harris Teeter offers at least one item that is a super-crazy deal. It’s called the EVIC Weekly special and is only available to those who signed up for EVIC. You can use a coupon on top of the EVIC special since it’s a sale. There is usually a limit of 2 on the Weekly Member’s only EVIC deal and you do need to buy both items in one transaction if you want both.
Harris Teeter does a Saturday Special each week. Usually there are TWO items that are an exceptional deal with a limit of two. You can use coupons on top of the sale, too. These sales are the same for all shoppers and we post these on our site Thursday night/Friday morning for you.
Bonus EVIC Weekend Deals. Harris Teeter gives bonus weekend deals to their EVIC customers and these vary by card. You will see them in your Friday Harris Teeter email or App and they last Friday-Tuesday night. Be sure to check to know which deals were loaded to your card. You can use coupons on top of these deals, too. There is usually a limit of 4 on these specials. We post these to our site matched on Thursday night/Friday morning for you.
Meal Deal. Harris Teeter offers meal deals that usually last 2 weeks at a time. This is a group of items that you must purchase together in one transaction and you will receive an extreme discount for them. You can use coupons on top of the meal deal, too! There are usually signs in the store indicating the meal deal as well as a card at the register. You can also check the Harris Teeter website to see what the current meal deal is. Meal deals can be purchased multiple times throughout the week but only once per transaction.
Double Coupon Programs
Harris Teeter stores double coupons everyday! Only coupons that are $.99 and less will double. For example, $.75 coupons double to $1.50 off, making them more valuable than a $1.00 coupon at Harris Teeter. You can double twenty coupons per VIC card per day. It will not work to go to another Harris Teeter store down the street because the HT system keeps up with doubled coupons on your card and the cash register will automatically stop doubling coupons after 20.
There is a limit of 3 like coupons doubled. Any other like coupons will be taken at face value. For example if you had 5 coupons for $.50 off Colgate Toothpaste and you bought five boxes, three of those would double to $1.00 off and the other two would be accepted as $.50. In this situation, it might be wise to come back on another trip to double the last two coupons so they could double.
Coupons do not double beyond the cost of the item. The Harris Teeter system automatically catches this and stops the doubling at the item’s price. For example, you have a $.75 coupon and an item costs $1.00. The $.75 coupon would not double to $1.50 to create overage. It would stop doubling at $1.00, so you would get the item free but you would not earn extra money. *There is one way to get overage at Harris Teeter and that is with EVIC digital coupons (see below).
Super Double Coupons Week is another special event that Harris Teeter does. It happens approximately every 6 weeks and during this week Harris Teeter will double all coupons that are $2.00 or less. For example, your $1.50 coupon would double to $3.00 off. The same rules apply as double coupons above.
Triple Coupons Week is a special event that Harris Teeter has done in the past. It does not occur as regularly as Super Double Coupons Week but it seems to happen once or twice a year. During Triple Coupons Week, all coupons that are $.99 and less will triple. For example, a $.50 coupon would become $1.50. Other than the tripling, the same rules apply as double coupons (20 per day limit, 3 like coupons limit).
If an item you need is out of stock, request a raincheck at customer service. The rain check entitles you to the sale price later, when they get more in stock. Even if the sale is over, when you present your rain check, you get the item on sale plus you can use any coupons you have, too. Harris Teeter rainchecks never expire, so you can come back and redeem them at any Harris Teeter store at any point in the future!
Some people use rainchecks strategically at Harris Teeter, especially B1G1 free rainchecks. You could hold them until a sale and use your rain check then. You would get the sale price PLUS half off for the B1G1 free raincheck PLUS use any coupons! Do not be disappointed about having to request a rain check, as they can be very valuable later.
EVIC Digital Coupons
EVIC Digital Coupons are coupons that you click and load to your Harris Teeter VIC card. You can access them in your Harris Teeter weekly emails. Look for the red button that says “EVIC coupons.” When you click it, you will be taken to pages of coupons that you can click and load to your VIC card. You can also click them in the Harris Teeter app.
You can click up to 99 eVIC coupons at a time; if you click more than that they will not load. Once you buy the item and scan your VIC card the digital coupon comes off your total automatically at the register. It will be labeled on the screen and on your receipt as ZVR, which stands for ZAVER, the company Harris Teeter uses to manager their digital coupons.
EVIC coupons can only be used once, they then disappear from your card. Many reappear the following months, so always check at the beginning of the month and throughout the month for new ones. I check before I go shopping at Harris Teeter. Also, click them as soon as possible because they can “sell out” of clicks. In other words, if enough people click it before you do, it will disappear and be unavailable for you to click.
Harris Teeter allows stacking of digital coupons. This means that you can use them in conjunction with physical or paper coupons. Also, it occasionally occurs that you have nmore than one digital coupon for the same product. In this case, if you buy the product, both EVIC digital coupons will come off, even if you only buy one product. EVIC digital coupons do not double.
You can make money with EVIC Digital Coupons. This is because they come off in addition to your paper coupons, even if the paper coupon makes the item free! For example, a product costs $2.00 and you have a $.75 paper coupon and a $1.00 EVIC digital coupon that you clicked. The paper coupon would double to $1.50 off, making the product cost $.50. Then your EVIC digital coupon would come off, too, making the final price FREE plus a credit of $.50. This credit will be applied to the rest of your order. Harris Teeter does not pay out any credits to you in the form of cash, so if they are not applied, you will lose them. I recommend using your credits to go towards meat, produce or even grab a Harris Teeter gift card to eat up the credits.

Coupons are accepted; however they are not applied until your next order.
Competitor’s Coupons Harris Teeter gladly accepts competitor’s coupons for money off the total purchase, such as $5 off $25. This can get tricky, as each manager has the right to determine who the store’s local competitor is. It is best to ask at customer service before attempting to use a competitor’s coupon. Harris Teeter also takes catalina (long, skinny register coupons) from other stores since these are really manufacturer’s coupon.
