At Lowes Foods this week, look for good deals on shrimp, cantaloupe, Russet potatoes, Tribe hummus, Progresso soup, Cape Cod chips, Eight O’Clock coffee and Pepsi. But also be sure to take note of the front page of the circular, which is filled with Buy One, Get One for a Penny deals instead of the traditional Buy One, Get One Free deals.
This is significant because with a traditional BOGO deal, shoppers can choose to buy only one item and it will ring up half off. These new BOGO Penny deals require that shoppers purchase both items.
Further, it will be interesting to see how the chain handles coupons with a BOGO Penny deal. With a traditional BOGO deal, shoppers are permitted to use a coupon on each item but that was because the items rang up half price. I tend to think that since the second item on a BOGO Penny deal will ring up at 1 cent, a second coupon would either be refused or redeemed for only 1 cent. (Lowes Foods coupon policy states: “Coupon value cannot exceed our retail price of the item; no cash back will be awarded.”)
