Lowes Foods 5/4

Posted May 4, 2011

At Lowes Foods this week there are some great buys using the 3-week coupons as well as good deals on Breakstone's sour cream, Old El Paso products, chicken breast, strawberries, Cheez-It's and more!

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.

Three Week Coupons!: The 3-week coupons from last week’s ad are still valid and these are good through May 17. If you didn’t get the coupons last week, ask the customer service folks if they still have any copies. There are some pretty good deals including those listed below. Many stores will also let you keep the store coupons after they have been scanned and you can use them throughout the 3 weeks so you don’t have to take a bunch of sales ads.

As is often the case, P&G products are pricey, even with coupons but if you are brand specific for these products and are going to buy them anyway, there are some ok buys. There are more details about the rebate in the ad including how to redeem. Lowes Foods has been helpful in that they did the coupon match-ups in the sales ad so see the ad for more information.

There is a coupon in the ad for Buy 2 Hallmark Mother’s Day or Graduation cards and get 1 FREE

    When I have done similar deals in the past it was before coupons so I am assuming this is the same.

    sorry about the typo, it's P&G lol

  • thecrazyclacks May 5, 2011

    For the P&G promo, can it be $30 total BEFORE coupons? My P7G plan total is $30.41 and after coupons is $17.41. If I could do that and get the $10 prepaid card, that wouldn't be a bad deal :)
