Harris Teeter Regular Double Coupon Policy Basics

Harris Teeter doubles coupons every day of the week automatically. Coupons with a face value of £0.99 or less are doubled automatically everyday (unless the coupon indicated Do Not Double). Harris Teeter will double up to 20 coupons per day, per household.

Harris Teeter will double up to 3 identical coupons (must have required product to go with each coupon). BOGO sales ring up at half price. If you just buy one, it still rings up at half price.

You can use a coupon on each item in a BOGO deal. So, if you buy 2 items that are BOGO, you can use two coupons (which is a very good thing!). Shoppers cannot use a coupon with a rain check.

Rain checks expire in 60 days. Senior discount: Seniors 60 and older receive a 5% discount every Thursday. Discount applies after coupons are deducted.

Harris Teeter digital e-coupons: Harris Teeter digital coupons are available to load to your Vic card. These digital coupons CANNOT be combined with paper manufacturer's coupons. They will not double.

The official Harris Teeter Coupon Policy can be found on their website.

Harris Teeter Super Doubles Coupon Policy Basics

Harris Teeter offers the Super Doubles Promotion on a regular basis. When they offer the promotion, we will let you know before it starts. During the pandemic, Harris Teeter is not offering Super Doubles events.

* HT should be Super Doubling coupons worth up to £2 face value. This means that a £1.00 coupon will double to £2.00, a £1.50 coupon will double to £3.00 and a £2.00 coupon will double to £4.00! * HT begins super doubling coupons at 7:00 AM on the first day of the sale.

24 hour stores do not super double coupons before 7:00 AM on the first day (at least that is how it has always worked in the past). Your best bet is to get to the store before 7 am if you want to get the freebies and best deals. Some people get there at 6:15 am or earlier and then wait in line until the register allows coupons to begin Super Doubling at 7 am.

* HT will super double/double up to 20 coupons per household per day. Spouse's cards registered with the same address are linked because the policy is 20 per household, per day. If you have twenty £1 coupons and twenty .75 coupons, only 20 total will double.

They will not double 20 coupons that are under £1 and also super double another 20 coupons that are over £1. It's 20 total coupons that are £2 or less doubled per day. * HT policy is to double up to 3 identical coupons (as long as you buy the product required for each coupon, of course).

So, if you have five £1.00 coupons for a product, the policy is to only super double the first three. The other 2 will be accepted at face value. * Printable coupons: HT will accept 3 printable coupons per like item, per store, per day, according to their policy.

So if you buy 3 identical items and you have a printable coupon for each one, you can use all three. * New Raincheck policy as of March 29, 2017: Harris Teeter will no longer let customers combine a raincheck with a coupon for the same item. In addition, rainchecks now expire 60 days after they are issued.

* If your store is out of your favorite deals (and they will be out of some of them) ask the customer service folks when the next truck arrives so you know when they will be restocking. * Enjoy the deals you are able to get and please remember that many of the best deals will sell out quickly. The stores will reorder those items, but often, the warehouse runs out so they cannot get the stock.

Please be nice to the store employees as it is not their fault if items are out of stock.

And if you are excited about your great deals, give Harris Teeter a call at their Customer Service number, send them an e-mail via their website or post a comment to their Facebook page to thank them.

Happy Shopping!

Boots hacks to get discount codes, extra points and free beauty products

With Christmas fast approaching, one of the go-to retailers for many shoppers during the build-up is Boots. The retailer offers 3-for-2 on many products and even dedicated sections of its stores to Christmas gift ideas. Essentially, there has never been a better time for us to reveal some top tips to saving money at Boots especially when one of them could save you GBP127.50 on beauty products before Christmas.

Opting in to email marketing, downloading the app and Googling before you shop could all help you save a fortune. And, when it comes to points, there's a way to use them to save money instantly, instead of having to wait until the next time you're in store, reports MEN. We've rounded-up some of the biggest Boots money-saving tips below:

Get an instant 300 points on your loyalty card - that's enough to get a Barry M or Rimmel nail varnish for free

When it comes to saving as you shop, signing up to a store's loyalty scheme is always the first step you should take.

At Boots, each loyalty point is worth 1p, so every 100 points you earn is GBP1 to spend in store or online. If you join Boots' loyalty programme by becoming a Boots Advantage Card holder, you can get four points for every GBP1 you spend (so you get 4p back on every GBP1 spent, whereas many retailer's loyalty schemes only offer 1p back). Share your thoughts on what this Christmas will be like this year in our great big Christmas survey

Once you create your account, download the Boots app and your account will be topped up with 200 points (worth GBP2) instantly. Then collect a further 100 points (an extra GBP1) when you give your email for the latest health and beauty news and advice.

Boots points checkout hack: Split transactions to tactically gain and spend Boots Advantage Card loyalty points instantly

When you get to the self-checkouts, see how many points you have on your card. If you only need a few more points to pay for one of the cheaper items in your basket it might be more beneficial to split transactions instead of saving the points for your next shopping trip.

Put the item (or items) you want to pay for with your points to the side. Sign up to our Secret Elves Club newsletter to find out the best festive deals and things to do this Christmas Scan and pay for the remaining products to accumulate more points.

Then pay for the item or items you've put aside using your points card.

Save GBP127.50 on beauty by buying an advent calendar - and have the chance of winning GBP1,000 too

Last year moneysavingexpert.co.uk revealed that you could get your hands on GBP174 of No7 cosmetics for GBP42 by buying the No7 advent calendar. This year's No7 advent calendar costs GBP45 but products included are worth GBP172.50- saving you GBP127.50. Shoppers are also being asked to look out for one of ten golden tickets hidden inside selected calendars for a chance to win GBP1000 worth of No7 products.

Use all your Boots Advantage Loyalty Card points at Christmas

Instead of using your points to get money off throughout the year, try not spending a point until December.

And if you can hold off from spending them for even longer, wait until Boxing Day so you can get more for your points by spending them on discounted items. Starting in January will help you to accumulate a year's worth of points - but it's not too late to start now so you'll have some set aside for Christmas.

Use vouchercodes to quickly view Boots' current deals - here's the current list for September

It can be overwhelming to take in each offer when you visit an retailer's website. So before you visit, head to vouchercodes.com to see a list of current offers to have a more organised shopping trip.

Get your hands on 'beauty freebies'

If you're a beauty fan, you might want to sign up to become a member of the Boots X tribe.

Once you opt in to marketing, you'll be able to receive Boots' 'beauty freebies'. You'll also get sent exclusive offers, beauty tips and more.

Mark its 70% sale as a date in your diary

Each year, Boots runs a huge 70% off sale while the date can change slightly each year it is typically around the end of Janaury.

2019's sale was the latest it has been to date with the offers available on Friday, February 1. When launched the deals are available in store only.

Many shoppers use it as a way to stock up on Christmas presents for the following December.

Industry group working to phase out barcode-based coupons

The Coupon Bureau is developing a universal digital coupon. The non-profit, industry-managed coupon data exchange technology platform that works with many of the largest CPG manufacturers and retailers is creating a singular, centralized database of offers for use across paper, mobile, or online commerce. Known as the Universal Positive Offer File, the database has moved into the next phase of development. 

The Universal Positive Offer File will leverage the Hedera Consensus Service (HCS) to create a universal digital coupon for the retail industry. The universal digital coupon will feature a new coupon application type, known as AI (8112), that will enhance coupon security and reduce fraud.  The move to a new universal digital coupon standard will see the phasing out of the existing legacy coupon type AI (8110) based on barcodes, once a majority of retailers are compatible with the AI (8112) type format.

Every coupon generated will have a digital fingerprint on the HCS, a decentralized public network governed by global technology companies including Google and IBM.  When a coupon is redeemed, it will also be recorded on HCS, so it cannot be used again or reproduced. This system will allow for online couponing, not currently available under the current coupon standard.

In addition, the activities of the centralized data exchange all pass through HCS for verifiability. The Coupon Bureau expects to integrate with upwards of 70% of grocery retailers by 2021. "The COVID-19 outbreak has required the coupon and retail industry to find innovative ways to meet consumers' changing behavior, especially in the context of dramatically rising e-commerce sales and online deliveries," said Brandi Johnson, CEO of The Coupon Bureau. "There has never been a more urgent need for a universal digital coupon that crosses retail mediums, verticals and purchase environments, to provide consumers and retailers with the added layer of trust to serve their needs.

Today, we are proud to roll out the roadmap for sunsetting old coupon formats, and delivering a cohesive couponing experience for both retailers and consumers."

The Coupon Bureau's mission is to connect manufacturers, retailers, and consumers through technology and community, and to build solutions to the issues of real-time validated, retailer-agnostic coupons and fraud prevention.

A non-profit corporation, TCB works with members of leading coupon and retail associations - ACP, JICC, FMI (The Food Industry Association), GMA, CONEXXUS, Consumer Brands Association, and GS1 US - to develop new technology, support third-party technologists, and deploy educational programs for industry stakeholders.

Discount for eating out lifts Mitchells & Butlers

Mitchells & Butlers picked up where it left off before lockdown by outperforming the wider pub and restaurant sector.

The All Bar One and Harvester operator said like-for-like sales in July fell by 32.4 per cent, but had rebounded in August on the back of the chancellor's Eat Out to Help Out discount scheme and the VAT cut, growing by 1.4 per cent compared to the same month in 2019.

Trading in September settled below that level, with like-for-like sales declining by 6.4 per cent up until the introduction of new restrictions.

The sharp fall in sales in July, when the hospitality industry was allowed to resume trading, was blamed on reduced capacity as a result of social distancing and on consumer caution.

The Coupon Bureau and Hedera Hashgraph Move to Next Phase in Delivering Universal Digital Coupons

DALLAS, Sept.

24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Coupon Bureau (TCB), a non-profit, industry managed coupon data exchange technology platform that works with many of the largest consumer product goods (CPG) manufacturers and retailers, has moved into the next phase of development of its Universal Positive Offer File, which will leverage the Hedera Consensus Service (HCS) to create a universal digital coupon for the retail industry. The new universal digital coupon will provide a standardized and secure mechanism for coupon distribution by utilizing a singular centralized database of offers, which can be used across paper, mobile, or online commerce. "The COVID-19 outbreak has required the coupon and retail industry to find innovative ways to meet consumers' changing behavior, especially in the context of dramatically rising e-commerce sales and online deliveries," said Brandi Johnson, CEO of The Coupon Bureau. "There has never been a more urgent need for a universal digital coupon that crosses retail mediums, verticals and purchase environments, to provide consumers and retailers with the added layer of trust to serve their needs.

The universal digital coupon will feature a new coupon application type, known as AI (8112), that will enhance coupon security and reduce fraud. Every coupon generated will have a digital fingerprint on the Hedera Consensus Service.

When a coupon is redeemed, it will also be recorded on HCS, so it cannot be used again or reproduced. This allows for online couponing, not currently available under the current standard. In addition, the activities of the centralized data exchange (UPOF) all pass through HCS for verifiability.

More information on how the integration works can be found at https://www.thecouponbureau.org/trustlayer. The move to a new universal digital coupon standard will see the phasing out of the existing legacy coupon type AI (8110) based on barcodes, once a majority of retailers are compatible with the AI (8112) type format. The sharp rise in touchless commerce since the COVID-19 outbreak is expected to hasten retailers' plans to become 8112 compatible. The Coupon Bureau is projected to be integrated with upwards of 70% of grocery retailers in 2021.

4 Reasons to Avoid the GoodRx IPO

Initial public offerings from consumer-focused digital healthcare platforms have been terrific sources of gains for investors in 2020, and there's another big one on the way. Shares of GoodRx (NASDAQ:GDRX) are expected to begin trading soon, and plenty of everyday investors find the company's prospectus compelling. Digital coupons that route sales of prescription drugs through a pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) are increasingly popular.

GoodRx -- a price comparison app that offers such coupons -- stands to benefit from that rise. Before you dive in, though, there are a few things you should know.

1. It's a complicated business

Investors do best when they avoid businesses they don't understand.

Most don't realize the bizarre pricing structures that pervade America's uniquely fractured market for prescription drugs are more complicated than the science that produced those drugs.  When a consumer uses a GoodRx code to fill a prescription, GoodRx receives a portion of the fee the pharmacy must pay the PBM that facilitates the sale. Anyone who doesn't already understand how the PBM industry makes GoodRx's business model possible probably shouldn't hold it in their portfolio.

2.

House Resolution 3

Drugs cost more in the U.S. than they do almost anywhere else largely because the nation's largest end payers, Medicare and Medicaid, aren't allowed to use their enormous leverage to negotiate. Sensible healthcare reform might seem impossible at the moment, but that could change quickly. In December 2019, the House of Representatives voted 230-192 to send H.R.

3 to the Senate. This bill would allow the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to directly negotiate the prices it will pay for hundreds of different drugs. The resolution never got a vote in the Senate, but the matter could come up again in the future.

3.

Safe-harbor rollback

Healthcare plan sponsors and insurers that haven't already acquired PBM businesses of their own hire a PBM to negotiate drug prices on their behalf. Pharmaceutical companies must offer PBMs rebates to secure access to the patients they represent. If those rebates sound like payments for an illegal kickback scheme to you, you're not alone.

Discounts PBM wrestle from pharmaceutical companies are protected from Anti-Kickback Statute enforcement by a safe harbor regulation that exists for this sole purpose. Last February, HHS proposed a rule that would unwind that protection. That means the government could torpedo the PBM industry GoodRx relies on for around 90% of total revenue without enacting any new legislation.

4.

Contracting margins ahead

In 2019, GoodRx acquired a company that offers online applications for consultation with physicians called HeyDoctor. The service is popular, but not very profitable on its own. Instead of a digital coupon that simply directs prescription drug sales through a partnered PBM, HeyDoctor provides telehealth medical services at knockdown prices.

The vast majority of HeyDoctor visits end with prescriptions likely to be filled with an attached GoodRx coupon.

GoodRx hasn't broken out separate results for HeyDoctor, but it looks like the low-cost service provider could become an albatross around the company's neck if GoodRx's coupons stop performing.

In the first half of 2020, total revenue grew by an impressive 48% year over year to £256.7 million. Unfortunately, costs associated with producing that revenue more than doubled over the same period to £12.8 million. As a percent of total revenue, income from operations fell to 33% from 38% in the previous year period.

It could work

It probably isn't a good idea to invest in a company that relies so heavily on cash flows that could quickly evaporate.

That said, betting against a sharp rise in GoodRx's stock price isn't a good idea either. 

A continuation of the status quo could lead to steadily growing profits, even if margins get a little thinner.

In the medium term, a repeal of the Affordable Care Act could send a lot more customers into the arms GoodRx.
