Coupons & COVID-19: Simple Way to Pinch Pennies During the Pandemic

The pandemic has many of us pinching pennies and looking to get a better bang for our buck. "I mean it's a pandemic! You got to do what you got to do," said Hartford resident Latrice Foster.

Foster spoke to NBC Connecticut as she was entering the Stop & Shop on New Park Avenue in Hartford. "I'm coming here because they have the sale item that I want." Foster isn't messing around when it comes to saving money.

"I go to all the local stores and buy whatever is on sale with my coupons." Even with one less mouth to feed these days. "So I have a son, but he just left for school, so my grocery bill just got cut in half!

So yeah for that because he's 6'4," so he's a giant. Imagine how much he eat?" Hartford resident Chris Branford is also watching his wallet during the coronavirus crisis too.

"It makes you like appreciate what you got. What you can do with your money." Branford said he's clipping coupons more these days, something New Britain father Nicola Faraone swears by.

He finds that it saves his family a lot of extra money. "It just means being able to take more vacations," he said, and putting his kids in more programs too.   Faraone, a longtime grocery store employee, has seen firsthand just how hard this year has been for folks, like when shelves went bare as the state started to shut down.  

"In 25 years, I've never seen anything like what I saw on those four weeks. Literally, we were sleeping at the store. It was crazy."

Now Faraone hopes his years of couponing can help out other Connecticut families during the coronavirus crisis. His wife Irene explained the first time her husband shopped with coupons, "He came home with enough stuff to fill our kitchen, I looked at him and said, 'what are you doing?' He told her, "This whole thing only cost me like £32." So she said, "At that point I said, 'you know what, do what you got to do.'"

Faraone said finding and clipping coupons is easy - check your local flyers and browse online too.  "When I get the coupons, I clip them right away. My sons like to help clip them, so it's kind of like a family thing."

But Faraone said it's essential to keep the coupons in order by expiration date, really take the time to plan out your grocery shop, know exactly what you want to purchase, and set a budget.

 "I said all right, 'this is what I'm spending' and I was literally like 40 cents off." Faraone said only buy what you'll need, despite what you see in his packed basement, which his kids call "The Coupon Store." For the family of five, he said it makes sense to stock up.

Plus, they like to share with neighbors in need. While cleaning supplies, for example, may be tough to find right now, Faraone said deals do exist, even if you have to think outside of the box. For example, "What you can do is called 'stacking,' when you use a store coupon with a manufacturer's coupon." Using both on one item makes things even cheaper.

For the Faraones, couponing gives them a little more cushion as they bounce through life's ups and downs. "I'd say on average about £10,000 a year," said Faraone.   Couponing can be complicated, so the Faraone family recommended finding and joining local Facebook groups.

They said don't be afraid to ask members questions and most importantly, make it fun. That's what Foster suggests too. "Just look at the different flyers on the weekend on a Saturday or Sunday when you're sitting there watching TV, or something, maybe NBC News."

Industry analyst Ted Rossman said make sure you look for deals online too. He's seeing more digital deals linked to credit cards during the coronavirus crisis, as more people are shopping from the comfort and safety of their couches. While Rossman suggested taking advantage of these cash back offers, he warned they do come with a catch: make sure you're not buying over your budget.

Rossman said he believes the main risks with these online offers are overspending and privacy concerns. While Rossman said some folks are fearful of getting tracked by advertisers online, for those who already use the web to shop, he suggests checking out all your options before you cash out. "Don't go directly to the retailer's site.

Like click through that credit card portal or click through that airline portal look around for coupon codes."

This way, he said, you can potentially get items cheaper, accumulate extra points for the future or gain potential cash back opportunities.

So when times are tough, savvy shoppers said taking some extra time that can save you some extra cash in the end.

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!

Virtual freshers week: Big brands Tinder, Nandos and Amazon connect with students on digital platform

The first ever virtual freshers' week fair is being piloted at eight leading universities next week, letting big brands get themselves in front of the hard-to-reach student audience as their participation in 'The Digital Welcome'. Tinder, Domino's, Amazon, Perlego, Jack Wills, Nando's, Uber Eats, The Times and WKD are just some of the brands using the platform to engage with freshers in fun, innovative and commercially beneficial ways later this month. With the coronavirus pandemic having struck out the traditional and very popular freshers' fairs events from the student calendar later this month, Raptor, a student marketing agency, has developed 'The Digital Welcome' to take the place of the real thing.

Over 160,000 students are set to experience the new and virtual version. 'The Digital Welcome' comprises a virtual and exact replica of the campus of each of the participating universities which students will be able to move around. They will be able to stop off at multiple points of interest and find out more about all the various societies at each university and discover all the extracurricular interests that are being catered for.

The new platform will enable students to sign up for all the things that take their fancy. From Tea to Skydiving, Philosophy to Bad Films, there is a society or group for most interests featured. The campus map uses the latest state-of-the-art interactive technology to also involve the brand partners offering a range of great student deals as part of embedded immersive experiences including augmented reality, web games, 3D modelling, merchandise freebies, discount coupon offers and video and messenger integration.

[embedded content] Tinder has developed a digitised version of its Tinder UNI airstream vehicle, which will also let students claim free branded merchandise. Domino's is bringing a store onto the virtual campus offering 50% discounts and hosting games including Wheel of Fortune and Plinko where students can win free pizza.

Amazon is offering sign up to Prime Student with ?5 off a student's next order. Perlego, the online learning library, is offering a 2-week free trial, freebies and will plant a tree for every visitor to its library incarnation on the campus map. Accessed via a virtual ski chalet on 'The Digital Welcome', students will find Jack Wills partnering with snowsports operator NUCO to offer lucky students an all-expenses paid trip to the Alps.

The Nando's Peri Peri virtual food truck will offer free Nando's giveaways and allow access to Nando's Yard to watch live streams. Uber Eats has a ?10 off spin-to-win experience. The Times is offering free online subscriptions.

WKD will be sampling its new MIXD ready-to-drink cocktails in a can. 'The Digital Welcome' is initially happening at Imperial College London, University of Birmingham, UEA (University of East Anglia), Northumbria University, University of Sussex, UCC (University College Cork, Ireland), University of Chester and University of Exeter in conjunction with each of their respective students' unions or guilds. More campuses will be rolled out for ReFreshers' Week in January and it is hoped that by Freshers' Week 2021 all UK campuses will have a virtual event.

Lori Henebury, Media and Marketing Coordinator at the University of Birmingham Guild of Students, said: "We're confident that 'The Digital Welcome' will be as close as it gets to a Freshers' Fair for students and a fantastic addition to the welcome period given the amazing immersive experience the technology will offer. It is really important that new students get to understand what their universities offer outside of just their courses in addition to benefiting from loads of freebies and great offers, and 'The Digital Welcome' is a brilliant platform which does just that in these unprecedented times." David Burgman, CEO of Raptor, the creators of 'The Digital Welcome', added: "Thanks to 'The Digital Welcome' students can still receive the amazing experience and benefits they deserve this September.

Freshers' week is an incredible moment in time for those in higher education and we're doing our innovative best to not let the coronavirus get in the way of that.

From a commercial perspective, it is also a really important opportunity for many brands to get in front of students and we're keeping that door well and truly open for them too via the digitisation of this traditional student experience."

'The Digital Welcome' will sit on each participating university's website and it will be available on both desktop and mobile.

Wessanen Supporting Organic September Following Recent Uplift In Sales

Wessanen UK has revealed that it has strong year-on-year growth across its organic brand portfolio during recent weeks, which it is now aiming to build on during Organic September. Sales of organic Whole Earth peanut butter were up 25%, Kallo organic stocks and gravies were up 27% and Clipper organic teas up 16% (IRI, 12 w/e 15 Aug, 20). According to a recent report by the Soil Association, sales of organic produce overall in the UK grew by 18.7% during lockdown and since January, organic food has seen the highest growth since 2016.

Following the positive sales uplifts, Wessanen is again supporting Organic September by investing in a shopper marketing campaign, executed in Sainsbury's and across the health food trade. From this week, the company's core organic brands will be part of heavyweight in-store campaign across 400 Sainsbury's stores and the retailer's website with a combination of shelf branding, online advertising, coupon offers, emailers and an advertorial in Sainsbury's Magazine. Wessanen UK will also support 530-580 health food stores throughout September with branded chalk boards, adverts and free samples of Clipper's wide range of organic, Fairtrade teas.

Marianne Bainbridge, shopper marketing manager at Wessanen UK commented: "According to the Organic Trade Board, over 12 million people in Britain are more likely to buy organic than before the pandemic, so we are doing our bit to help spike awareness of organic product ranges through in-store executions - educating consumers that small changes to your shopping basket, can make a big difference.

"The Organic September message this year, 'nature has the answer', is well-aligned with Wessanen UK's mission to connect consumers to nature through its portfolio of purpose-driven brands."

Discovery Announces the Pricing Terms of its Cash Tender Offers for Five Series of Notes Open to Retail Holders Only

SILVER SPRING, Md., Sept.

16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Discovery, Inc. ("Discovery") (Nasdaq: DISCA, DISCB, DISCK) today announced the pricing terms of its previously announced transaction to purchase five series of outstanding senior notes issued by its wholly owned subsidiary, Discovery Communications, LLC ("DCL"). The cash tender transaction consists of five separate offers by Discovery, DCL and Discovery's indirect wholly owned subsidiary Scripps Networks Interactive, Inc. ("Scripps" and together with DCL and Discovery, the "Offerors") to purchase for cash (each, a "Cash Offer," and collectively, the "Cash Offers") any and all of the outstanding notes listed in the table below (collectively, the "Notes"), on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated September 10, 2020 (the "Offer to Purchase" and, together with the certification of eligibility to participate in the Cash Offers, the instructions for such certification and the notice of guaranteed delivery, the "Cash Offer Documents"). The Offerors' obligation to complete a Cash Offer with respect to a particular series of Notes is conditioned on the aggregate Tender Consideration (as defined in the Cash Offer Documents) for the Cash Offers (which excludes the applicable Accrued Coupon Payment (as defined below)) not exceeding £80 million (the "Maximum Tender Amount") and is subject to the other conditions set forth below.

The Cash Offers will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time today, September 16, 2020 (such date and time, as may be extended or earlier terminated by the Offerors, the "Cash Offer Expiration Date"). The "Cash Offer Settlement Date" will be promptly following the Cash Offer Expiration Date and is expected to be September 21, 2020.  Only holders who are not "qualified institutional buyers" and who are not non-U.S. persons (other than "retail investors" in the European Economic Area or in the United Kingdom and investors in any province or territory of Canada that are individuals or that are institutions or other entities that do not qualify as both "accredited investors" and "permitted clients") are eligible to participate in this transaction, as more fully described below.

Discovery also announced today the pricing terms of its transaction to exchange any and all of such five series of notes pursuant to private exchange offers (each, an "Exchange Offer" and collectively, the "Exchange Offers"), which are open only to Ineligible Holders (as defined below). The following table sets forth, for each series of Notes, the yields and the Tender Consideration for each £1,000 principal amount of such Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the Cash Offer Expiration Date and accepted by the Offerors:

(1) The Offerors will accept Notes for purchase in the order of their respective Acceptance Priority Level specified in the table above (each, an "Acceptance Priority Level," with 1 being the highest Acceptance Priority Level and 5 being the lowest Acceptance Priority Level), subject to the Aggregate Maximum Cash Offer Condition and the other terms and conditions described in the Offer to Purchase. It is possible that the Aggregate Maximum Cash Offer Condition might not be met with respect to a series of Notes and such series of Notes will not be accepted for purchase, even if one or more series of Notes with a lower Acceptance Priority Level is accepted for purchase.

The Offerors reserve the right, but are not obligated, to increase the Maximum Tender Amount, in their sole and absolute discretion, without extending the Withdrawal Deadline or otherwise reinstating withdrawal rights, except as required by applicable law.


(2) Represents the bid-side yield on the Reference U.S. Treasury Security calculated as of 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on September 16, 2020, in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Offer to Purchase.


(3) Represents the bid-side yield on the Reference U.S. Treasury Security plus the applicable Fixed Spread, calculated in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Offer to Purchase.


(4) Determined taking into account the par call date, where applicable, for such series of Notes.

Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Cash Offer Documents, Eligible Holders (as defined below) who (i) validly tender and who do not validly withdraw Notes at or prior to the Cash Offer Expiration Date or (ii) deliver a properly completed and duly executed notice of guaranteed delivery and all other required documents at or prior to the Cash Offer Expiration Date and tender their Notes pursuant to the Cash Offers at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the second business day after the applicable Cash Offer Expiration Date pursuant to guaranteed delivery procedures, expected to be September 18, 2020, subject in each case to the delivery of the certification to participate in the Cash Offers and tendering the applicable minimum denominations, and whose Notes are accepted for purchase by Discovery, will receive consideration in the Cash Offers equal to the applicable Tender Consideration.

The Offerors intend to pay in cash accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes accepted for purchase from the last applicable interest payment date to, but excluding, the Cash Offer Settlement Date (the "Accrued Coupon Payment"). Interest will cease to accrue on the Cash Offer Settlement Date for all Notes accepted in the Cash Offers, including those tendered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures. The last interest payment dates for the Notes are expected to be September 20, 2020 for the 2037 Notes and the 2047 Notes, June 1, 2020 for the 2040 Notes, May 15, 2020 for the 2042 Notes and April 1, 2020 for the 2043 Notes.

For the avoidance of doubt, the interest payment payable with respect to the September 20, 2020 interest payment for the 2037 Notes and the 2047 Notes will be paid to record holders of the 2037 Notes and 2047 Notes as of September 5, 2020 and thus will not be included in the calculation of the Accrued Coupon Payment payable on the 2037 Notes or the 2047 Notes. The complete terms and conditions of the Cash Offers are set forth in the Cash Offer Documents, each of which have been distributed to Eligible Holders in connection with the proposed Cash Offers. Each Cash Offer is subject to certain conditions, including (i) certain customary conditions, including that we will not be obligated to consummate the Cash Offers upon the occurrence of an event or events or the likely occurrence of an event or events that would or might reasonably be expected to prohibit, restrict or delay the consummation of the Cash Offers or materially impair the contemplated benefits to us of the Cash Offer, (ii) that the aggregate principal amount of cash payable by the Offerors to Eligible Holders participating in the Cash Offers is no greater than £80 million before giving effect to the Accrued Coupon Payment (the "Aggregate Maximum Cash Offer Condition") and (iii) the timely satisfaction or waiver of all of the conditions precedent to the completion of the corresponding Exchange Offer for such series of Notes (with respect to each Exchange Offer, the "Exchange Offer Completion Condition").

The Exchange Offers are subject to certain conditions, including (i) that the aggregate total exchange consideration (which excludes the Accrued Coupon Payment) shall not exceed £2.1 billion (the "Maximum Exchange Consideration Condition") and (ii) that the aggregate principal amount of New Notes to be issued under the Exchange Offers must be equal to or greater than £500 million (the "Minimum Issue Condition"). The Offerors will terminate a Cash Offer for a given series of Notes if they terminate the Exchange Offer for such series of Notes, and the Offerors will terminate the Exchange Offer for a given series of Notes if they terminate the Cash Offer for such series of Notes. The Exchange Offer Completion Condition may not be waived by the Offerors; however, the Offerors reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to waive the other conditions, including the Aggregate Maximum Cash Offer Condition, the Maximum Exchange Consideration Condition and the Minimum Condition Requirement.

If the Aggregate Maximum Cash Offer Condition is not satisfied or waived, the Offerors will terminate the applicable Cash Offers and the Exchange Offers. If the Aggregate Maximum Cash Offer Condition is not satisfied or waived for every series of Notes, then the Offerors will, in accordance with the Acceptance Priority Levels, accept for purchase all Notes of each series validly tendered and not validly withdrawn, so long as (1) the aggregate cash payable by us to Eligible Holders of Notes of such series participating in the Cash Offers (which excludes the aggregate Accrued Coupon Payment) is no greater than the Maximum Tender Amount for all validly tendered and not validly withdrawn Notes of such series, plus (2) the aggregate cash payable by us to Eligible Holders participating in the Cash Offers for all validly tendered and not validly withdrawn Notes of all series having a higher Acceptance Priority Level than such series of Notes is equal to, or less than, the Maximum Tender Amount, subject to the condition with respect to Non-Covered Notes further described below. It is possible that a series of Notes with a particular Acceptance Priority Level will fail to meet the Aggregate Maximum Cash Offer Condition or another condition set forth in this Offer to Purchase and therefore will not be accepted for purchase even if one or more series with a lower Acceptance Priority Level is accepted for purchase.

If any series of Notes is accepted for purchase under the Cash Offers, all Notes of that series that are validly tendered and not validly withdrawn will be accepted for purchase. Only holders of Notes who are not (i) "qualified institutional buyers" within the meaning of Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and who are not (ii) non-U.S. persons (as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act) located outside of the United States within the meaning of Regulation S under the Securities Act, other than "retail investors" (as defined below) in the European Economic Area or the United Kingdom, are eligible to participate in the Cash Offers. For these purposes, a retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of Directive 2014/65/EU (as amended, "MiFID II"); or (ii) a customer within the meaning of Directive 2002/92/EC (as amended, the "Insurance Mediation Directive"), where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 (as amended, the "Prospectus Regulation").

Holders of Notes located or resident in a province or territory of Canada will only be eligible to participate in the Cash Offers if they are (i) individuals; or (ii) institutions or other entities that do not qualify as both "accredited investors," as such term is defined in National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions ("NI 45-106") of the Canadian Securities Administrators or Section 73.3(1) of the Securities Act (Ontario), and "permitted clients," as such term is defined in National Instrument 31-103 - Registration Requirements, Exemptions and Ongoing Registrant Obligations ("NI 31-103") of the Canadian Securities Administrators. The Offerors refer to holders who meet the foregoing criteria in this paragraph as "Eligible Holders." The Offerors refer to holders of Notes who are not Eligible Holders as "Ineligible Holders." Only Eligible Holders who have delivered a certification to D.F.

King & Co., Inc., the tender agent, certifying that they are Eligible Holders, will be authorized to participate in the Cash Offers. Holders are advised to check with any bank, securities broker or other intermediary through which they hold Notes as to when such intermediary needs to receive instructions from a holder in order for that holder to be able to participate in, or (in the circumstances in which revocation is permitted) revoke their instruction to participate in the Cash Offers before the deadlines specified herein and in the Cash Offer Documents. The deadlines set by each clearing system for the submission and withdrawal of tender instructions will also be earlier than the relevant deadlines specified herein and in the Cash Offer Documents.

Lockdown spurred organic sector growth of 18.7%, strong performance set to continue

Pioneering B Corp food company, Wessanen UK, has reported strong YOY growth across its organic brand portfolio during recent weeks, which it is now aiming to build on during Organic September. Sales of organic Whole Earth peanut butter were up 25%, Kallo organic stocks and gravies were up 27% and Clipper organic teas up 16% (IRI, 12 w/e 15 Aug, 20). According to the Soil Association, sales for organic produce overall in the UK grew by 18.7% during lockdown and since January, organic food has seen the highest growth since 2016. (Soil Association 2019/2020 report)

Following positive sales uplifts, Wessanen UK is once again supporting Organic September by investing in a strategic shopper marketing campaign, executed in Sainsbury's and across the health food trade. From September 16th, Wessanen UK's core organic brands will be investing in a heavyweight in-store campaign across 400 Sainsbury's stores and sainsburys.co.uk with a combination of prominent shelf branding, online advertising, coupon offers, emailers and an advertorial in Sainsbury's Magazine. Wessanen UK will also support 530-580 health food stores throughout September with branded chalk boards, adverts and free samples of Clipper's wide range of organic, Fairtrade teas.

Marianne Bainbridge, shopper marketing manager at Wessanen UK said:
