Confirmed! Super Doubles likely at Lowes Foods starting Wednesday, Aug. 21

Lowes Foods has confirmed Super Doubles on its Facebook page. I'll have the start of a good deals list shortly with more updates to come all day tomorrow.

It's looking likely that Lowes Foods will offer a Super Doubles coupon event, starting this Wednesday, Aug. 21.

Folks on the national coupon forums are reporting the event is a go, but the ad hasn't surfaced yet. I'll keep you posted.

In the meantime, now is a good time to prepare -- if you have any coupons left from the still ongoing Super Doubles at Harris Teeter.

Also keep in mind that Lowes Foods has a store coupon book out right now that should make for some really nice deals when combining these store coupons with manufacturer coupons.

If you don't have a booklet, it might be worthwhile to swing by a Lowes Foods and request one from customer service.

Here are a few more tips to prepare for a coupon event at Lowes Foods:

Coupon database updated

The News & Observer's  coupon database has been updated.

This Sunday's home-delivered Final Edition of The News & Observer contains two inserts -- one Smart Source and one Red Plum -- for a total of 130 coupons with a face value of about $130.

That's before you double -- or super double -- the first coupon, of course, which we have the opportunity to do every day of the week.

Super doubling comes into play this week at Harris Teeter, of course. Look for my separate post matching up all the new coupons with Harris Teeter prices for new deals through Tuesday during the Super Double coupon event.

Not familiar with the coupon database? You can access it on the right-hand side of the blog. There's a button at the bottom right to view it as a full-size page.

Or, you can download it as an Excel spreadsheet by clicking on the attachment at the bottom of this post.

It's a handy tool, giving you the most timely and detailed list of coupons in the Triangle.
There will be 130 coupons with a face value of about $130.
