Scan Guarantee

Our scan guarantee states "If an item scans higher than the shelf tag or sign, you will receive one 1 item free and any additional quantities at the price stated, excluding alcohol and tobacco."

We will honor five "scan guarantees" per customer; all other pricing inadequacies will result in the difference between the shelf tag and the actual price of the item being refunded. For example, if a customer presents 6 cans of tuna, 3 jars of tomato sauce, 2 boxes of cereal, 4 bottles of shampoo, 2 boxes of crackers, and 3 packages of diapers with shelf tags and receipts saying that all of these items scanned incorrectly, we will give them 1 tuna, 1 tomato sauce, 1 cereal, 1 shampoo and 1 box of crackers for free, all additional quantities and the diapers would be refunded the difference between the scanned price and the shelf price.

Harris Teeter reserves the right to limit quantities on coupon usage, as well as products and to amend our policies as we deem appropriate.
