Lowes is at it again with the $10 off $50 coupons. This time it is on packs of energizer batteries, which sell for $8.97. (Wal-Mart has same batteries, without coupon for $9.97.) This means your coupon is worth $1.03 more than you paid for batteries. But it gets better, because Lowes applies coupon on $50 purchase prior to figuring taxes, so you save an additional $0.75. Add that to your $1.03 savings, and Lowes actually pays you $1.78 to take batteries. Look for specially marked packages of 20 AAA, or AA, plus packages of C, D, and 9 volt batteries. Christmas is coming, and you know you are going to need batteries.
