Food Lion deals: Carrots, tomatoes, chicken, bacon

Posted July 3, 2012

At Food Lion this week, you will find deals for carrots, tomatoes, chicken, soda, bacon and more! If you still have some last minute July 4th hot dogs to pick up, the Ball Park franks are BOGO.

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 1 coupon per product. No e-coupons will double. Click HERE for more information.

Wet‘n Wild Emerald Pointe discount on tickets when you show your MVP card:
$5 off all-day admission July 1 – September 3
Valid for up to 6 people for each MVP transaction, no discounts during 4 pm admissions during entire 2012 season

Summer Savings event: Get $20 in free groceries when you shop 6 times between 5/23 and 7/17 and spend $45 or more in each shopping trip. Once you make the 6 required shopping trips, you will receive a coupon on your receipt for $20 off your next shopping trip. See store for more details. Honestly, I never spend that much an any one store every week, so I never get these types of rewards. If Food Lion is your main store, though, you may spend enough every week to get the reward. coupons available for Food Lion My Essentials products. You’ll find coupons for cereal, eggs, bread and more HERE.

    No problem savesavesave. I wish I could list some for FL. I typically do my main shopping at Lowes since it's convenient to my home, they double coupons, and I can price check items using Lowes Food-to-go.

    FL often has better sales on most items, but I'm not the type to take a big coupon binder to the store and shop. I like to plan out what deals I want to buy, get the coupons cut and ready, and go to the store. Get in and get out.

    But glad I can help you and any others. Thanks for your kind comments.

    cancel the previous post on Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, 1 pint.
    at Publix without the barcode

    labs, I believe that may be a Publix store only coupon.

    I believe the pints are regular priced around $4, so $2 for the sale. $1 after the coupon if it's not Publix only.
