Update: Food Lion digital freebie coupons not valid

Food Lion freebies

UPDATE: Sad news - the CSR I spoke with from Food Lion said that they are removing the digital coupons and that none are valid.

Looks like it was a glitch after all. Sorry to get your hopes up, everyone!

Original Post on 5/4:

Check your Food Lion digital coupons to see if you scored over 25 FREE product digital coupons!

To see if you have them, go to the Food Lion digital coupons on their website and click on My Coupons. You will see the Free product coupons already loaded to your card. You don't have to load them manually.

I got 29 freebies including Dawn, Dove soap, Eggo waffles, Clorox bleach, Dole salad, Bananas, Apple Juice, canned fruit, shredded cheese, Gold Peak Tea and many more!

The coupons are valid throgh May 24, 2016 so we still have 20 days to redeem them.

It will be interesting to see if these were offered intentionally and they were not loaded accidentally. I plan to go later this morning to see if they are working.

Did you get these offers, as well?

Please let us know if they are ringing up correctly for you at the store.

    I had them, but by 8:15 they were gone. I did see where some where able to get all of the items this morning before the glitch was caught. They had to be manually entered.

    Took me forever to log in. i believe they were stalling to take any freebies away. Our FL store was renovated but i didn't get any free coupons either but thanks for the notice.

    I still have 4 freebies loaded to my card. Will be interesting to see if those are valid. Planning to check it out this afternoon if the coupons are still loaded.

    Someone on the smart shopper FB page indicated that she got 4 freebies from Catalina register coupons yesterday.
