I am always envious of your stores. We don't have Harris Teeter.

You did great! I was going to copy your exact scenario today, but I left my binder and it got stolen yesterday. Maybe next time!

Dr. Mom said...

That's terrible! Someone took your binder? I am so sorry to hear that!

How did you get around the Harris Teeter rule of not using more than 2 IP coupons per transaction? Would love to do your deal, but my HT wouldn't let me.

Dr. Mom said...

This is the rule from the Harris Teeter site:

"With the purchase of two like manufacturer’s products, we accept two internet coupons, per store, per day."

That means if you buy two of the same items, you can use two internet coupons. You can buy two other items and use two more internet coupons. It does not mean only two internet coupons for the total transaction.

You should call the corporate office and discuss this with them. Your store has the wrong interpretation. I have never been turned away from using more than two internet coupons, but I can only use two per same product.
