How often does Super Doubles or Triples happen?

This was my first time doing super doubles and I did the triples in November which was my first too. How often do these special coupon events happen? Is there a rotation that each events happens twice a year or is it really random?

For a whiiiiile we had Triples on a monthly basis.

Later into 2009 they started the Super Doubles and kinda switched between T and SD.

Then we didn't see any event for a whiiiiiiiiiiile 'til last week.

So hopefully they start to do the events once a month again

It seems as if before last year it was every 3 months (triples)? I wasn't couponing much then so may be wrong. Then as TJ_2008 said they started doing them every month last year, and switching between doubles/triples, which was fantastic. Then the last one before this one was end of October.

Now we're all waiting with bated breath to see if they just stopped them over the holidays and will do them every month again.

As soon as someone leaks it! Officially HT will not confirm it until the day it starts, but typically people can find out from employees in advance. I think we've usually known up to a week ahead.

How do we find out about Triples anyhow? That was always a mystery to me. Do people just ask their store managers? Thanks!

Yes, it's usually a few store employees who spill the beans at various stores and once you hear it from a handful of different stores it's usually pretty reliable. There do seem to be a few people who are good at getting absolute confirmation and posting it either here or elsewhere online. Although we've had a few false alarms this year. Those really stink!

I haven't seen this mentioned before, so I apologize if I'm repeating common knowledge.

Harris Teeter doesn't have a set schedule for triple coupons and they aren't planned far in advance. When the sales figures for the week are totaled, they compare them to the sales figures from the same week last year. If sales are down, they'll schedule a triple coupons event for the following week to draw in business. So, if the sales week runs from the 1st through the 7th, they'll examine the sales figures on the 8th, and schedule a triple coupon week to run the 15th through the 21st. That's why even Harris Teeter employees only know a few days in advance.

This is how it was explained to me by a 15-yr. Harris Teeter manager (whom I was engaged to, so he let me in on all sorts of insider info). They weren't doing "Super Doubles" yet, but I would assume it's the same criteria because they alternate. Super Doubles, then Triples, then Super Doubles, and so forth.

The mgr. at our store here in Hendersonville said he's not suppose to tell me this. But they were going to do it every 45 days this year. He said he didn't know if they were going to switch out super doubles then triples, or what. So according to that the next one should be around the 17th of Feb.

During one of the triples I called one of our stores and said " is our store having the triple coupon event next week like the ones in Raleigh are" ( Not really even knowing for sure if Raleigh was having a triple.) I thought maybe it would make them think I already knew, well it worked, they went and checked and came back and told me YES.

I also did that last week with Ingles, I called 2 weeks before because I knew it was soon getting time for one,made them think I already knew it was coming, they told me NO, it would not be that week but would be the next week and it was.

We don't have one where I live, but I drove 30 minutes twice in one week to go the super doubles in the next town over. It was worth it. AWESOME!!! I WANT A HARRIS TEETER!!! I had been watching for it, and it seems they do it once every 2-3 months. I am thinking it must be a quarterly thing.

They always seem to pick the week after a holiday, ie. the last one was the week after new years. So it would be fitting if it were the week after valentine's as suggested above.

Ok if the mngr. was right the next triples or super doubles should be around April 7th. Let's see if that is right. I was the last time. If this is the trend this year it will actually be easier to plan out which coupons to stock up on.

and that date would also fall right after a holiday again. Which seems to be the deal lately too....so I'm thinking that is probably right. I just hope we get a good triples, loved Super Doubles the past 2 times. But I'd like some triples too.
