Had to share the great chicken deal I found today!

Posted August 21, 2010

I stumbled upon a fabulous unadvertised deal on boneless skinless chicken breast at my Lowes Foods today.  They were on sale for $1.49 per pound in the larger 4.5 - 5.5 lb packs.  AND I happened to have a couple $1 off chicken coupons from a tearpad display found in a store a few weeks ago. My total ended up being $1.26 per lb!  I bought 14 lbs worth at that price! We are cooking up one of the 4.5 lb packs right now to have for dinner tonight and Monday night.  I am going to freeze the rest for dinners in the next couple weeks. I have already frozen the other 2 value packs to use in the next month or two.

The value packs were leftover from the the $1.99/lb sale last week and they are just trying to move them. I doubt other Lowes Foods have them on sale for this price.

There were still some packs left when I was there this evening if you want to try to get a few before they are gone. I was at the Lowes Foods at Middle Creek Commons at the intersection of Hwy 50 and Hwy 42 in the 40/42 area.  Warning - they were going fast so they may be gone by the time you get there.

Hurray for a great surprise chicken deal!

    So glad you were able to get the chicken. They should have taken your Catalina from Kroger. They take mine. Here is the policy from their website here: http://www.lowesfoods.com/index.cfm/aboutus/faqs/

    o We gladly accept local supermarket or supercenter competitor’s circular or direct mail coupons for dollars off the entire order. (examples include Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Bi-Lo, Kroger, Super Target, Super K-Mart, Wal-mart)

    o We will not accept any competitor coupons for specific items. For example, we will not accept a competitor’s coupon for $1.00 off of an individual item.

    o Coupon must be in-date.

    o We will not accept any type of internet coupons from any other retailers.

    o We will not accept any type of competitor coupons from drug stores or club stores.

    o We will accept Catalina Check-out Manufacturer coupons from competitors as long as they are in date, all purchase requirements are met, and they scan

    Thanks for sharing, Faye! I took off for that LF as soon as I saw your post and was able to get chicken for my mom and for my family. They still had 8 packs when I left the store a little before 9 PM tonight (Sat). The sign said the sale is good through today (but the sell by date isn't until the 25th) so get there if you can! They're open until midnight.

    As a side note, I was thinking LF would take my $2.50 off your next order catalina from Kroger but it wouldn't scan and I didn't push it since I didn't remember the policy exactly. I read what you have posted in the LF coupon policy but what's been your experience with them accepting $ off your next order cats from other stores?
