Lowes Foods deals 10/12

Posted October 11, 2011
Updated October 12, 2011


Lowes Foods has some very good deals on Total Raisin Bran, split chicken breast, oranges and more this week!

Links to the many printable coupons found on and can be found in the box to the left.


Lowes Coupon Policy Basics:

Doubles coupons .99 or less everyday

Doubles up to 20 coupons per day

Doubles up to 4 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 and you can still use a coupon on it! I love that policy!

Reminder: You can now add digital coupons to your Lowes Foods Reward card by going to These coupons will not double.

3-Week Coupons: The 3-week coupons in the sales last week are still valid this week. If you did not get the coupons last week when they came out, I suggest asking the folks at the customer service desk at your store if they have any extras. Sometimes they keep extras of the coupons. These store coupons are good October 5 – 25, 2011. They can be coupled with manufacturer’s coupons and the cashier will give the store coupons back to you to use throughout the 3 week period.
There are a number of digital coupons available as well that match the sales nicely. I just spoke with a CSR from Lowes Foods who did confirm they are now letting customers use the digital coupons with manufacturer coupons so there are some great deals to be had!

Lowes Foods Fuel Program

As I posted last week, there is a new Lowes Foods Fuel Rewards program: Lowes Foods Fuel Rewards launched last week and saves you money at Lowes Foods gas pumps AND WilcoHess gas pumps! The new program is valid at all stores in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Here's how it works:
For every $100 you spend in any Lowes Foods store, you will receive $0.05 off per gallon of gas at any WilcoHess or Lowes Foods fuel station.

There is no limit to the amount of Fuel Rewards that can be earned, and they can be stacked so that customers can save $0.10, $0.15, $0.20 or more per gallon.

As many of you know, the previous fuel program was only available at the Lowes Foods stores that have a gas station (20 stores total). Now there will be over 200 WilcoHess fuel centers where customers can use their Lowes Foods Fuel Rewards.

If you want to start earning Lowes Foods Fuel Rewards, you will need to pick up a new Fresh Rewards loyalty card at your local Lowes Foods or contact the Lowes Foods Customer Care Center at 1-888-537-8646. The new loyalty cards will have a magnetic strip allowing you to scan or swipe your card at the gas pump and redeem your Fuel Rewards.

    I am devastated. I live in tiny Roxboro and Lowes Foods was my ONE AND ONLY store that doubled coupons, and they just switched over to Just Save. I am grieving like someone died because I always check the WRAL list and do the match-ups and no I can't. And Just Save does not have lower prices than Lowes Foods. For the most part, the items are still the same prices they were before. I really miss my Lowes Foods. Now the only grocery store in a 30 mile radius is Food Lion.

    I tried to buy the chef's favorite steamfresh vegetables as part of the e-offer at the Wake Forest store on Capital Blvd. It didn't ring up and when I questioned it I was told that it was selected varieties and that was not one of them. I complained to the corporate office and am now waiting for the manager to call me. Lately I have gotten very poor customer service at this store. One month ago I asked for a raincheck and they didn't have anymore. They are only a paid of paper that they write them on and I don't think they should ever run out of rainchecks
