You know, it’s funny. HT had a similar deal last week where you ended up with a bunch of free or close to free Betty Crocker baking stuff. I had planned to get to HT to do that deal and get the BOGO London broil, but the week was too busy and I didn’t have time. I already have a few cake mixes and frostings so it wasn’t a cake mix emergency. But here we are, the very next week with another similar deal. That’s often the way these sales go. I don’t stress if I miss a good one anymore. Someone will have it on sale in the next couple weeks. Lowes also has the London broil on sale this week for a similar price so I’ll be able to get both deals, just a week later.

Fresh Rewards Deal: Buy any 3 of the Lowes Food condiments list and get $2 FRC. Participating items include:
Lowes Foods Mayo, 32 oz $2.29
Lowes Food Ketchup, 36 oz $1.29
Lowes Foods BBQ sauce, 18 oz. .87
Lowes Foods Salad Dressing, 32 oz $2.29

Scenario: Buy 3 BBQ sauce for .87 each = $2.61 AND earn $2 FRC so the total after sale and FRC = .61 for 3 (.20 each – a good price!)

    Irishiii - watch the sales on HBA items at CVS and Walgreens, many times they offer extra care bucks or register rewards when you purchase shampoo, etc and you can use your coupons, sometimes making them nearly free or actual money makers with the instant refund of the ECB's or RR's which you can use to buy anything you want with, even sometimes roll it right back into buying another shampoo etc with another coupon and really make it free/money maker.

    So many coupons out there lately that with the Super Doubles make so many things literally pennies on the dollar! I have miles to go before I'm done with HT this week - 14 cents for a box of Hartz Crunch&Clean dog biscuits, (5) 64 oz bottles of Old Orchard Healthy Balance juices for the cost of one $2.99! B2G3Free and a coupon for B1G1 made that a fantastic deal.

    California Pizza flat melts for .50 cents when they normally sell for over $3........mercy, there are just so many great deals! Kraft deli cheese slices for .50 cents,etc.

    I was diligent on my grocery research this time. My HT bill was $58 and I spent $17! LOTS of good coupons, I even bought things I normally would not this time because of the super double coupons.

    For example, I have a Smucker's Ice Cream Toppings $1 off coupon, which is doubled to $2. They are on VIC special this weeek for $1.57

    I never get shampoo at the grocery store, but I did this time, Herbal Essence had $1 off coupon - doubled to $2 - I ended up paying $1.69 (I pay almost $3.50 at Target for it)

    I go online and make my list with HT's Express Lane (just for the pricing) so I know exactly what is on sale and my total before I go to the store. And I stick to that list.

    Thank you Faye! I always wondered how you knew the original price when the HT Sale info just says "17.6 lb; Item Rings at
    Half Price; Buy 1, Get 1 Free" !!

    Awesome! thank you.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper May 20, 2010

    unc - the sale price is $8.49. The after coupon price is $6.49. You can also look up sale prices anytime at www.harristeeter.com through the online shopping option. You can check prices without ever having to log in or buy anything. Hope that helps!

    Hi Faye - you posted this deal at HT...

    "Kibbles and Bits 17.6 lb dog food BOGO for $8.49 - $2 coupon from 4/11..."

    Is the final cost 8.49 - 2 = 6.49, or does the 8.49 include the $2 off already?


  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper May 20, 2010
