Food Lion deals 8/31

Posted August 31, 2011

Food Lion has some good buys this week on peaches, strawberries, hot dog and hamburger buns, and Food Lion brand soda.

Food Lion Coupon Basics

Food Lion does not double coupons

They have no limits on number of coupons they will take, unless specified in the ad

BOGO items ring up at half price so if you only buy 1, it rings at half price. You can use a coupon on each BOGO sale item.

E-Coupons: You can now load manufacturer’s coupons to your Food Lion MVP card and when they scan your card at the register and you buy the qualifying items, the discount will come off automatically. I spoke with corporate and they confirmed that these are manufacturer’s coupons and not to be combined with hard copy manufacturer’s from the newspaper and other sources. She said their policy is only coupon per product. No e-coupons will double. Click HERE for more information.

    I don't know if this was a fyer sale or a managers special but the breyers icecream was all 1.99 at my food lion limit 4. I had a nice little stash of coupons for 75 cents off each so this little surprise rocked!

    Ignore my question..I just saw at the top that Faye has already addressed this up top. I should of paid more attention

  • leeandkaren2 Sep 1, 2011

    Does anyone know the price of the Oscar Mayer Franks? I only need one pack and am trying to figure out if the Lowe's Food price of 1.99 is the better deal or not. Thanks in advance!

    I have a question...Does Food Lion take the coupons that are loaded on my MVP card, plus coupons printed off the computer or that I found in the sunday paper for the same product? Like, if I have the .25 off charmin paper on my card and I also have a .25 coupon that I cut from the paper, will FL take both coupons for 1 pack of charmin paper? If they will, then do I need to use my MVP card first or give my paper coupons first? THanks!
