Food Lion deals 1/25

Posted January 25, 2012



Food Lion has some good buys this week on cucumbers, carrots, romaine lettuce, chicken leg quarters, chicken breasts, soda and more! These deals are valid 1/25 - 1/31.


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.

    Strawberries from Plant City Florida so they are ripe not white like ones from Cali

    Yeah free yogurt plus .03 back!! My kids eat lots of yogurt. Also found $1.25 coupon on your next order that someone thru away in the parking lot. Guess they didn't realize it was good on anything.

  • lovetherascals Jan 25, 2012

    You can stack the Food Lion coupons that came in the mail with manufacturers coupons. I can't remember which ones I used, but I used both. And, by the way, the My Essentials yogurt is very good. It took me years to get hubby to eat yogurt- and then he would only eat Yoplait. I've been buying the My Essentials because it's such a good deal, and he actually prefers it to the Yoplait now.

    Please make sure the super sale coupons are printing at the register before you begin your transaction. I was in a hurry and forgot to ask, and my FL was not nice at all when I asked about it. ::Sigh:: With that being said, I still love shopping at FL because I have recently found that the prices on many items are cheaper compared to HT :)

  • ssemicolony Jan 25, 2012

    There is a Digiorno coupon for $3 off [2] pizzas near the frozen food aisle at Food Lion [Lake Boone]& at the customer service desk at Harris Teeter [Cameron Village].

    If you're still doing the My Essential yogurt deal at FL (Thanks again Faye!) - the frozen individual burritos are only .34 and make a great filler or a deal on their own with the Store Brand Super Sale.

  • Trickat Jan 25, 2012

    I haven't figured out the system for sending out coupons (FL, HT, Lowe's etc.) I just count myself lucky when they pick me!

  • JaredsMom Jan 25, 2012

    I haven't received a coupon book from FL.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jan 25, 2012

    I did not get the book, so I have not seen the coupons, tarheel22. If the coupons have Store Coupon or Point of Sale coupon on them, they are store coupons and your store may allow you to stack them with manufacturer's coupons. Many Food Lion stores will not let you use them with any other coupon, though (especially if the store coupon indicates that it can't be used with any other coupon). If the coupon indicates Manufacturer's Coupon, they cannot be coupled with any other manufacturer's coupons.

    Has anyone asked if these can be stacked?

  • tarheel22girl Jan 25, 2012

    Is the coupons in the book that was sent from Food Lion considered store coupons or can they be stacked with manufacturer coupons?
