    Faye - JDouglas was paying much better attention than me...saw the sign in the store about the net price. So no further follow up needed. It's a reminder to me to re-check and not run on prior experience as things do change. Best weekend wishes!

  • Em2s Jun 24, 2016

    Faye - Thank you for this great shopping list!

    If there is a way to share an update with JDouglas13, I'd be grateful. I posted info about a prior Lowes Food 25% off meats/seafood experience that is not applying this time and could adversely impact JDouglas13's purhase!

    JDouglas13- I hope you see this update before shopping at Lowes Foods. The print ad for the Sanderson Farm Boneless Skinless chicken breasts states: "$1.99 AFTER ALL DISCOUNTS" The 25% off is not stacking in addition to the sale price. I'm bummed, and very much hoping you learn of this before shopping.
