I just got back from my first trip to Harris Teeter this week for super doubles. I spent $3.96 (including tax) and saved $45.24. I didn't think the ad this week was good at all. Obviously many others felt the same way because there was hardly anyone in the store.

Very happy with this trip, especially the fact I paid for nothing except the pure protein bars. Don't hesitate to get a raincheck if they're out of something. HT rainchecks never expire. Save the raincheck til the next super double and chances are there will be a good coupon to pair it with. I didn't even try to get the dryer bars but once when they were on sale. After I got the raincheck I decided I wasn't going to fight for them, I would get them when there was less demand and sure enough it was to my advantage to wait.
Be sure to watch your total and have a clue how much your bill will be. I knew how much mine should be and it came up to be about $3 more. The cashier was very nice and luckily there was no line so she went back through my coupons and my receipt with a "fine tooth comb" they realized 3 of my coupons for $1/1 bic product said not subject to doubling in fine print under the retailer info. I had them take these off because I didn't want them if my coupon wouldn't double. This is why it always pays to check your receipt and know how much you should be paying.
