Triple coupons at Lowes Foods TODAY - Tuesday!

Posted April 25, 2010
Updated April 26, 2010

In an exciting move, Lowes Foods has decided to offer a triple coupons promotion once again. The even more exciting news is that the promotion starts TODAY, Sunday April 25 and lasts through Tuesday, April 27.  Here are the rules from the triples ad in today's paper: located on page 7B.

Triple Coupons

  • Triple up to 20 manufacturer's coupons with your Fresh Rewards Card
  • Will triple coupons up to a .99 value
  • No minimum purchase required
  • Promotion good in Apex, Cary, Chapel Hill, Clayton, Durham, Garner, Hillsborough, Holly Springs, Knightdale, Raleigh and Wake Forest Lowes locations.
  • 4 identical coupons max per order (if you have 5 of the same coupon and buy 5 of the product, only the first 4 will triple automatically at the register)

There are a couple unanswered questions that I will find out over the course of the day including whether or not we can do multiple trips each day or are they limiting it to 20 per day (vs 20 tripled coupons per transaction). It's not spelled out in the ad so I will check with the store and report back. I am guessign that it is 20 per day per person. 

Feel free to post any and all triples deals you find. Here are a few deals that were posted on www.hotcouponworld.com to get you started (Thanks HCW!):

    Excellent savings senglish and even more excellent purpose! I wonder if Lowes and HT know that so many of the deals we get are donated to those in need. Thanks for sharing!

  • senglish27529 Apr 27, 2010

    I had my coupons with me yesterday, and made a quick, unscheduled, unplanned trip to Lowe's, trying to see what I could get for free. I did pretty good -- spent $4.65, saved $26-something, AND they handed me a $5 Fresh Rewards Cash! So, they paid me to take those groceries away!

    Almost all of what I scored will go to the local food pantry, so I was less concerned about "what" I was getting, and mainly concerned with the net cost. Free is good!

    :-)

  • t0tAlChA0s Apr 27, 2010

    OK Thank you Faye. My total saved was 60.33. The 80.19 was the total before sales and q. I didn't make that clear. Sorry Nancy. Just wanted to make sure I was calculating right. Thank you!

  • saycrews Apr 26, 2010

    I was so disappointed that the Lowe's in Oxford, NC is not offering triple coupons. The cost of food in Oxford is higher than areas around and so I was floored when I found out they were not offering triple coupons! Won't shop there again.

  • Nancy Apr 26, 2010

    Faye, are we having fun yet? someone needs to tell me, I've lost track ;)

    Ok, so far I've gathered 20 Scott wipes - oh Lord how I love rolling those coupons that are just under the center top of each container I buy! .75/1 and that makes them free - I have a pair of scissors in my car, cut the coupons out and I'm ready for the next 4 free.

    And of course what I don't get used at Lowes will be used at HT starting Wed, I think there though they'll cost me 4 cents - drat! LOL

    Onward Coupon Soldiers!

    Correction - I had a little typo in the post below:

    I meant to say about yotu savings Totalchaos - If your total saved was $80 & total spent was $19, you saved 80% (not the 20% I put in the other post). You would have paid $100 but you only paid $20 so you saved $80, which is 80%.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Apr 26, 2010

    Great savings everyone! Nancy - you are too funny with your toothless chicken! Sadly, you are so right. It has been years since Lowes tripled so I am especially excited they have jumped back in the game.

    Total - if your subtotal before sales and coupons was $80 and you paid $19, you are correct that you saved 75% - which is great! If your total saved was $80 & total spent was $19, you saved 20%. I just wasn't sure if the $80 was total saved or subtotal before sales & coupons.

    Brownspring - most stores will double a Do Not Double coupon if the bar code starts with a 5. Many printable coupons that say Do Not Double start with a 5 & double with no problem at most HT's, Lowes & Kroger stores (as long as the coupon is within the amount the store doubles). Coupons with a bar code that starts with a 9 will not double at all. Some stores will pull aside the Do Not Double coupons (like the HT in Wilson), but thankfully most will double them (even though their policies say they won't).

  • Nancy Apr 26, 2010

    totalchaos, I take the total spent/saved against the total spent. That is where my percentage comes from:

    Example:
    $25.00 spent
    $75.00 saved
    $100.00 total
    I spent 25%, saved 75% is how I look at it. Because that's the real math on what those items would have cost vs what you spent to bring them home :)

  • Nancy Apr 26, 2010

    "Does anyone know how frequently Lowes Foods triples coupons?"

    How many teeth does a hen have? LOL

    Let's just say it's very rare! Last event of triples at Lowes was in 2008!

  • allysongreene84 Apr 26, 2010

    I only spent $1.87 and saved $42! Now I can't wait for Harris Teeter triples on Wednesday!
