It’s time for triples again

27 04 2009

My favorite grocery store, Harris Teeter, is at it again with another round of triples. It has only been one month since the last triples promotion, and according to folks with inside sources, it is another week-long event. Triples will begin Wednesday, April 29, and run through Tuesday, May 5.

This lends credibility to the rumors that Harris Teeter will be doing triples on a monthly basis. We coupon crazies can only hope.

And for those of you in the lands of no triples, such as Florida, my pantry runneth over in sorrow for you.

For those of you on the East Coast within driving distance of a Harris Teeter, click here  for a wonderful list of triples deals posted on the North Carolina-based deals forum, Many thanks to Faye Prosser, a North Carolina coupon guru and the author of the book, The Smart Spending Guide, for compiling the list, which also includes deals listed on, a national deals forum.

Looks like there are many free and nearly free items available to savvy shopper with the right coupons. During the first two days of the sale, we’ll be able to take advantage of those coupons with April 30th expiration dates. And Sunday will bring another new round of deals with the new coupon inserts in Sunday’s newspaper.

In these recessionary times, I can’t think of a better way to stretch that grocery budget.

Hit up HT this morning and it was a total scavenger hunt for my husband and I. Despite a previous attempt at bringing him to the store with me – I needed him to take half our stack of coupons and separate to ensure that we both got what we wanted quickly and not deviate from our plan 🙂

We only paid $12.92 for $47 worth of groceries! Not the most phenomenal triples savings…but we wanted to take full advantage of the coupons that expire tomorrow.

P.S. CVS has peelies for .50 off Vitamin 10 water…making them free at HT (on sale 2/$3) – worth a trip to CVS to grab some while they are still there. I can confirm that there is a new stack of peelies there today (4/29) at the CVS near Glenwood/Duraleigh.
