Once again, Food Lion has the low price on spiral sliced ham at $1.29/lb. They also have good buys on celery, clementines, split chicken breast, My Essentials soda and more!

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 RedPlum.com 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.

    FL just sent me $5/$30 coupons in the mail, they arrived two weeks later than they planned, so check your mail before you head off to Food Lion!

  • straitlover1965 Dec 21, 2011

    savesavesave, FL's prices vary by region. I know the prices at McGees Crossroads (exit 319 on I40) and 40/42 (exit 312) are not always the same.

    Mt essential 8 oz shredded cheeses are $1.49 @ FL. I also received a $10 off $40 coupon on the Midweek newspaper. I am done shopping so I wont be using it :(

  • savesavesave Dec 21, 2011

    isnt this the same ad as last week? also, very upset that the prices seem to be different here in king, nc. for example, listed here on the blog the ground chuck at 1.79/lb...it is 2.49 here in king...kraft cheese 8oz., BOGO listed here but it is 2/5.00 in king and then nancy, you mentioned land o lakes butter being $2/lb where it is 2.35 in king. i really, really, really wanted these items and am very upset with food lion : (..

    Ummm - meant to put: "clearly says $2.29 in the ad" - must be a typo kind of day. :-)

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Dec 21, 2011

    Thanks sbourgeois - not sure why I thought it was bogo - clearly says $4.49 in the ad.
