Below is Harris Teeter's new coupon policy. Some of the main changes I see are:
- They are now requiring that the product purchased has to match exactly what the coupon states.
- They are only accepting 1 coupon per B1G1 free items (apparently some have reported that the $1/2 coupons that are being used with the B1G1 free deals are beeping. They are making you buy 2 products in order to use the $1/2 coupon. So, that means you would really be getting 3 products, 2 of them you would be buying and the 3rd would be free. This is not good news :( The only good thing is that you should still be able to just buy 1 item at half price and use (1) $1/1 coupon)
- Competitor coupons will not be doubled or tripled
- Rainchecks will only be issued for 3 items
- We accept coupons that have not passed their expiration date for use; we cannot accept any expired coupons.
- We accept only one manufacturer coupon per purchased item.
- We do not accept coupons on items not purchased.
- Coupons must be presented at time of purchase; we cannot return money for coupons not used.
- Coupons presented and items purchased must match exactly; size, variety, flavor, etc.
- We uphold any purchase stipulations set forth by product manufacturer.
- We accept only one coupon for Buy One Get One Free items.

- We double manufacturer’s coupons up to face value of $0.99; with total amount not to exceed $1.98 or entire retail of item; whichever is less.

I had a reader email me yesterday saying that her store (Reynolda Rd. in Winston-Salem, NC) would not accept 2 coupons when buying 1 set of B1G1 free products, they were making her buy 3 in order to use both coupons. They were also not doubling any coupons that states "Do Not Double or Triple" on them.
So, please be aware that things might start changing at your stores...
