    You must be 16 and have a valid photo ID in order to obtain a VIC card.

    By being a VIC member you receive:

    • Automatic savings on specially marked VIC items you'll find throughout the store and in our weekly ad.
    • Automatic entry into VIC sweepstakes and special promotions where you can win great prizes, valuable rewards and FREE groceries.
    • A display of your VIC savings on the bottom of your register receipt.
    • And best of all ... your VIC Card is absolutely FREE!

    Thank you for sharing your concerns regarding our VIC card application process. Our sole purpose of getting a photo ID is to be certain the person applying for the VIC card is who they say they are. That protects us and also you, the customer.

    As we continue to offer more individualized offers/rewards and triple or super double coupon events it is imperative that we know our customer. For example, if we tell a customer that if they spend $100 in the next two weeks we will give them a $10 electronic rebate, we want to make sure the correct person gets the reward. Another example would be if the limit on triple coupons is 20 in a day, we want to be able to electronically control our rules. VIC cards are required for product refunds and additional benefits include VIC pricing discounts, entries in future sweepstakes, club points for free subs, and discounts on our Fresh Catch seafood products when enrolled.

    Listing the actual ID or Driver’s License number is our way to check to make sure store personnel are following the proper procedures in verifying a customer’s identity. We hope to earn your business.

    You can provide your home phone number to the cashier and that will ensure that any shopping credits are applied to your VIC account. If the number does not work, that is an indication it is incorrect in our database. Please contact our Customer Relations VIC services area to let them know so they can update your information, 1-800-432-6111, option 2.

    You can visit a store and get a new card, but it is preferable that you fill out the replacement card portion of the application. You can also use the Harris Teeter mobile app which includes a VIC card scanner or you can key your Alternate ID into the pin pad at the register.

    You can obtain a VIC card at your local Harris Teeter store.

    No. You are automatically entered into VIC sweepstakes and special promotions simply by using your VIC card during the promotion dates.

    If you apply at store level, you receive your card immediately.

    We will occasionally use customer purchase records and other information to offer special promotions or coupons to our customers. But we do not share personal information with anyone outside of Harris Teeter. If you prefer not to receive these special offers, just select the "opt out" box located on the VIC online application form and (for existing VIC Card holders) on the VIC online change form.
