Benefits of a Fresh Rewards Card:

1.     Loyalty Rewards – Loyal customers will earn Loyalty Rewards based on their purchases during the previous 12 weeks. *(see more on this below)
2.     Promotional Rewards – In addition to Loyalty Rewards, all members earn rewards when they purchase targeted promotional products.  There are weekly items listed which will produce rewards.
3.     Personalized Offers – By telling us what product categories are important to them and by giving us a valid e-mail address during enrollment, members receive offers customized to their individual shopping preference.

When you earn at least $5.00 in fresh rewards, you will receive fresh rewards cash at the checkout in $5.00 increments.  Fresh rewards cash is good for future purchases at Lowes Foods.  When you’re ready to redeem your fresh rewards cash, present the coupon, along with your fresh rewards card and the value of the coupon will be deducted from your order.  There is no limit to the number of fresh rewards cash coupons you can use in an order.  Remember, fresh rewards cash is nontransferable and expires 30 days from the date of issuance.  Once fresh rewards cash has expired, it cannot be extended or reissued.

* Purchases of wine, beer, prescriptions, fuel, taxes, services, gift cards and lottery tickets are excluded from the fresh rewards program.  Additionally, fresh rewards cash cannot be redeemed for these excluded items.  Loyalty Rewards eligibility is determined by purchases made in the preceding 12 weeks.  Not all customers are eligible for Loyalty Rewards because, on average, you will need to spend about $50 per week during the 12 week period to meet the minimum requirements for Loyalty Rewards.  The total is calculated AFTER deductions such as COUPONS, taxes, etc. So, while you may not benefit from the extra Loyalty Rewards, you will at least be able to take advantage of the store’s sale prices and get personalized offers (much like a Harris Teeter VIC card) with your FRC card.


I wrote to corporate asking why the basis for loyalty rewards wasn’t calculated BEFORE COUPONS since the store does, indeed, recoup all of its monies back from coupon usage. I was pleased with their response saying that they had forwarded my question and information to their corporate marketing department.  Maybe we’ll hear something back on that????  I will definitely follow up...in the meantime, let’s keep our fingers crossed!!!!

DISCLAIMERS: (1) This information is compiled from www.lowesfoods.com and e-mail messages from corporate. (2) I know this is LONG, but PLEASE, if you intend to shop Lowes, read it in its ENTIRETY.

1.       Get a Fresh Rewards Club card from the cashier or customer service desk (see next post for details on this program)
2.       Register your card online to get E-Offers (electronic discounts you select to load to your store card – according to corporate these are NOT manufacturer or store coupons,but discounted prices on items. It seems that you would be able to stack mfg coupons with these offers but the store policy states that you cannot.)  In some cases the e-Offer is better than a coupon. For example, right now you can load a $2 off discount on the 5.5 oz size Gold Bond Ultimate skin therapy lotion to your FRC card.  There are currently $1 off printables on the Internet and from Sunday inserts.
3.       Coupons double up to $0.99 everyday
4.       Limit 4 of the same coupon per transaction
5.       They do accept competitors’ coupons for dollars off your total purchase (NOT for specific items) and they accept Catalinas from other stores (Kelly has to ring code 6949 for Candice).  I used Walgreen’s Register Rewards last week at Lowes Foods with no problem.
6.       They offer shopping bag credits; $0.05 per bag added to your Fresh Rewards quarterly balance, not deducted from your order total like at Bi-Lo and Target.
7.       From time to time, LF offers Triple Coupons, but much like HT there is no rhyme or reason to when this event happens.
8.       If any item scans for a higher price different than the shelf tag, you receive one of that item FREE; excluding beer and wine (Scan Right Guarantee).
9.       Rainchecks are issued for out of stock items BUT they EXPIRE 30 days from the issue date
10.   Lowes To-Go: Online shopping with drive through pick up. The user interface is exactly the same as Harris Teeter's so if you've seen that one then you are familiar with this one.  The policies are much the same, also.  Coupons tendered are applied to your next online order.  There is a place for comments so if you are paying cash, I would think that you can leave a note regarding your wish to use your coupons.  They have been very customer oriented since I've been shopping there so I don't suspect this will be a problem on a cash order since they have to make another trip back inside the store and out to you anyway to get the payment and give you any change that may be due. There is a $4.95 charge for online ordering. Every 4th order is free.  Store personnel are not to accept any tips from customers.
