Aisle50 Lowes Foods OJ BOGO deal!

Posted September 9, 2011

Aisle50.com has a very good deal on Lowes Foods orange juice right now. You get two 64 oz cartons for $2.79, which is BOGO and a great price for orange juice!

I posted about Aisle50.com deals a few weeks ago. Click the link in the box above for the article. Here's how it works:

Aisle50.com offers daily deals for groceries -- you buy the deal of the day from them, at around 50% off of the normal price and they load credit for that item to your grocery store's loyalty card. When you check out at the store with the item in your cart, the the total price of the items comes off your bill when you swipe your loyalty card (because you already paid for it on Aisle50.com). They alert users to the new deal with an email that goes out as soon as a new deal gets posted. The deals will be daily starting this fall. For now, they will be running new deals every week or so.  You will not be able to use manufacturer's coupons on these items at the register since they are already paid for through Aisle50.com.

I bought the OJ deal because $1.40 for a 64 oz carton of orange juice is a very good buy! I also printed the recipe for Orange Creamsicle Smoothies on the deal page as well!

    Hi, am I the only one that feels uneasy just handing over my credit card info to Lowes Foods. Their isle50 deals are not worth me giving them this private info (card #). To me that is totally un-acceptable. What is wrong with using your store card # and paying when you pick it up? What's the big deal anyway???? I am very leary of this. No matter what they say about privacy, it looks almost like an open end thing to me - doesn't seem smart or necessary for the program to work - OR do they charge you anyway and HOPE enough people will forget to buy them and PAY anyway?????

    Did it work, MB?

    Thanks everyone ... I will try another browser ... I am on explorer.

    I used Mozilla Firefox when I bought the deal. I agree with ncsualum - try another browser.

    I went to Lowes today and got the 2 OJ's and the total came off at the register just like it should have. This deal worked perfectly for me.

    Marybeth, when I go to the page I see the little pictures, its like a person, then an @ symbol, then a Lock? But next to it it says First Name, Last Name, Email etc... Try using a different browser. When I use internet explorer the words are gone, and you can only see the pictures! Google Chrome works fine though! And it looks like firefox does too! Hopefully that helps!

    Thanks Faye ;) There are no words to explain what you have to fill out on the lines. On the sign in page there is an @ symbol next to it ... which is easy enought to figure out that they want your email. The next line is an upside down raindrop with a dot in it. I figured out to use my password ... not from the pic though. At checkout the only picture I understood was the rectangle with a stripe (credit card?) but it is pictured on 3 rows and then at the bottom again. I did not understand ANY of the other pics. Am I the only one getting this? I just checked it is the same way today.

    mrybeth - I don't know what pictures you are talking about but I e-mailed Chris with aisle50 and asked him to address your issue. Hopefully I will hear back from him on Monday.

    I honestly don't know what good they thought would come out of this, Nancy, hoodwinked or not. I totally agree with you that they made a terrible error in letting her break their policy and even if they never do it again, we will all suffer because of it.

    I think the people that said yes to this fiasco at Lowes probably were misinformed by the EC producers to a certain degree. I don't think they have had anyone that self-centered and mean-spirited on the EC show yet, so how could Lowes have predicted that the person filming in their store would behave so badly. But, they still own the huge blunder in letting her cheat and do so many multiple orders. As usual, it is all in bad taste and another reason why I said NO when EC contacted me about applying to be on the show.

    I guess some may believe that Lowes was hoodwinked by TLC to what they expected for their involvement in that show.

    I don't buy that for a NY minute. Lowes knew exactly what the show portrays and that volume (massive duplicate coupon use) is the norm. They knew going in that it was against their policy and yet they allowed themselves to be used and portrayed in the final version that they allow that?

    Their reply to me was less than honest in that regard, or, they really are naive. I don't buy that their corporate level is that uninformed.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding, Nancy.

    You were hoping for the truth. What you got was an admission that they made an exception for her and violated their policy for *that show*. They admit it was a bad idea, looking back.

    What more were you expecting?

    Maybe I'm missing something, which is likely since when I first saw the thread about the Lowes episode it was already at 50 comments and I'm sure I overlooked some of them.
