Lowes Foods deals 3/14 - 3/20

Posted March 14, 2012


Lowes Foods has another set of 3-week coupons out this week with some good deals on Chex Mix, Kraft BBQ sauce and Pizzazz sodas!

Luckily, you'll also find good buys on your St. Patrick's Day meal ingredients including corned beef brisket, cabbage, potatoes, and more! These deals are valid 3/14 – 3/20.

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 Lowesfoods.com. These coupons will not double.

The official Lowes Foods Coupon Policy can be found on their website HERE. Scroll down to see the policy once you get to their website.

3-Week Store Coupons from This Week’s Ad: There are some new 3-week store coupons in the ad including some good ones for:

Kraft BBQ sauce, 18 oz., .49, limit 4

3-Week Store Coupons from last week: The 3-week coupons that were in the ad last week are still valid through March 27. They can be coupled with manufacturer’s coupons for even better deals. These coupons can also be re-used throughout the 3 week period. Just ask your cashier to give them back to you after she/he scans them. The customer service may still have some of the coupons if you did not get them last week. You can see the full match up for the coupons on the Lowes Foods deals from last week. The link is in the box above. Here are my favorites:

Total with 2 coupons and $1 store coupon = 2 for FREE!

Lowes Foods butter, 16 oz quarters, $1.99 after coupon – a good price!

Yoplait frozen smoothie 2 for $4.00 after coupon

Corned beef brisket, center cut flats, $2.88/lb

Boneless chuck roast, $2.99/lb

Boneless top sirloin steak, $4.79/lb

Mrs. Paul’s frozen fish, select , BOGO - $1 coupon for parchment bakes variety (if included) HERE

Oscar Mayer bologna, 16 oz, meat (not beef), BOGO for $1.80

Ground Beef Instant Savings promotion: Buy 1 of each of the following and get $2 off ground beef. The ad indicates this is an instant reward so it seems like the $2 will come off at the register instead of a register coupon that prints out after the transaction. If anyone does this deal, let us know. The 3 items you have to buy to get the ground beef discount are:
* Hamburger Helper $1 each - .75/3 coupon from 2/5 GM and 3/11 SS
* Green Giant Steamers $1.79 each
* Pillsbury crescent rolls $2 each - .40/2 coupon from 1/29 SS, .40/3 from 3/11 SS
Because you have to buy 1 of each of these, it’s not as good a deal as being able to buy 3 of the same. The available coupons aren’t valid on just one item so you have to buy multiples of the Hamburger Helper and rolls to use them, making it a less desirable deal.

Dairy & Frozen

Dannon Oikos yogurt cups, $1 - .50/2 coupon from 3 /4 SS = .50

Dannon Activia or Light & Fit yogurt $2 - $1 Activia coupon from 2/12 SS , .40/1 Light & Fit coupon from 2/19 SS = $1 with $1 coupon

    I don't get where you all find like 3, 4, 5, 6 of the same coupon to use? I take mine from the Sunday paper and from online sources, but I usually don't end up with more than 2 of the same coupon with all of my sources. So you all get mulitple Sunday papers? I usually can't make it to coupon swaps, the times just aren't convenient. So how do I do this?

    lowes foods in spring hope still is lowes and they still double red robin2010

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Mar 14, 2012

    Carol, JustSave does not double coupons at all, which is the very big difference between JustSave stores and Lowes Foods. Here is the coupon policy:


  • carolharris2 Mar 14, 2012

    When I looked on the Just Save website, it appeared to have the same coupon policies as Lowes' Foods. Don't know if that would apply to the new store in Roanoke Rapids.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Mar 14, 2012

    I definitely agree about the gas, RedRobin!

  • RedRobin2010 Mar 14, 2012

    Faye - I believe there is a HT in Rocky Mount. Also love to go to the Aldi's there. Just the trip is only a Once a month thing. May have to change it but with gas prices what I save in coupons I spend in gas.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Mar 14, 2012

    I thought there was a Harris Teeter in Rocky Mount, trichardson. If so - bring that cooler!

  • trichardson0621 Mar 14, 2012

    RedRobin- I don't think there is a Lowes in Rocky Mount- the closest one I know of is Spring Hope. There was one in Nashville but it is a "Just Save" now. :(

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Mar 14, 2012

    I am sorry you lost your doubling ability, RedRobin! I would rant too if our Lowes Foods went to Just Save stores!

    Whenever you do go to Rocky Mount, make sure you bring a cooler and ice packs so you can stop and get the deals for the week. I don't have a Harris Teeter near me, but I am in Cary every week for a class my kids take so I always have my cooler and ice packs and shop HT while they are in class.

  • RedRobin2010 Mar 14, 2012

    I was going to go to my local Lowes Food (Roanoke Rapids) and upon arrival the other day I found it was CLOSED for remodel. Riding by today I saw that it has now been renamed Just Save. They are part of the Lowes family but do not double coupons. So I now have nowhere in my area unless I drive 30 minutes to Rocky Mount that doubles coupons. Really hoping Food Lion starts doubling soon. Sorry for the rant.
