I don’t clip coupons. There, I said it. (Although with our new budget, it’s probably time that I address my aversion to coupons.) In the meantime, I thought I’d pass along to all you Southern coupon-clipping-shoppers out there that Harris Teeter is offering triple manufacturers’ coupons until March 30. Today’s paper had a flier from Harris Teeter that proudly advertises their triple coupons deal. But, I noticed that their flier also says, “Up to $.99 face value. Limit 20 coupons per household, per day.” Okay, I get the limit 20 coupons thing (although I can’t imagine being such a coupon clipper that I have 20 of them to use each day for a week!), but the “up to $.99 face value” had me a little stumped. So I called our local Harris Teeter and asked someone in customer service what it meant. She said that they will triple all coupons for $.99 and under. That is, if I have a coupon for $.50 off toilet paper, then they’ll give me $1.50 off. Yes, I understand that, but what if my coupon is for $1.00 off toilet paper? Ah, then you only get $1.00 off. If it were for $.99 off toilet paper, then you’d get a $2.97 discount. Tricky.
So there you have it. Happy coupon clipping and saving!
