Food Lion
October 6– October 12

 

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.

Free Turkey Dinner Promo: Shop 6 of 8 weeks and spend $45 per visit. Earn 6 different weekly Electronic Turkey Credits (week # shown on your cash register receipt). A reward message will print at the bottom of your cash register receipt that indicates when you have qualified for a $15 Coupon. There is an enrollment card on the front page of the ad this week. I don’t ever spend $45 at any one store so I never qualify for these types of deals. If you normally spend enough to qualify for this promo, than this is a nice little added bonus.

General Mills Promo: Spend $10 in participating General Mills products and save $3 instantly at the register. Participating items include Cheerios, Yoplait, Plissbury Toaster Strudel, Betty Crocker cake mix, Progresso classic soups, Nature Valley granola bars, Fiber One bars, Pillsbury ready to bake cookies.

    I went to Food Lion and purchased more than $10 of General Mills products. When I checked out I realized that the $3 didn't come off the total. I went to customer service but they said they were unaware of this deal and that nothing could be done.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 11, 2010

    Thanks for sharing the deal, me2nc! Keep up the good work on saving!

  • dbztward Oct 10, 2010

    THANKS SO MUCH.

  • me2nc Oct 10, 2010

    Just got done my weekly shopping at my local Lowe's foods (@42/50 in the Cleveland Community) and they had an in-store special on Perdue refrigerated chicken nuggets - 2/$5. There were $.75/1 coupons recently, which Lowe's doubles, bringing your total price to only $1 each! Great deal I think!
    Also, a special thanks Faye for getting me on track with your recipe organizers. This is only my second week of really trying hard to save and I save over $17 last week and over $16 today in coupon buys :)

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 10, 2010

    They usually have the super doubles or triples promos the 3rd or 4th week of the month. We should start hearing about possible dates in the next week or so if they plan on having an October promo.

  • dbztward Oct 9, 2010

    DOES ANYONE KNOW WHEN HARRIS TEETER IS PLANNING ON HAVING SUPER DOUBLES AGAIN? MANY THANKS:)

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 8, 2010

    just visited my neighborhood Food Lion (eastern Wake County) and found Ronzoni Garden Delight pasta on sale 5/$5 (or $1 each) with a shelf coupon display Save $1 off any one Garden Delight pasta (3 varieties were available - spaghetti, fettuine, and pasta twists) so I picked up all three varieties for FREE!! or you can go to their website and print a coupon for $.75 off one http://ronzonigardendelight.newworldpasta.com/pasta_coupon.cfm (two other coupons are also available here -$1 off 2 boxes of Ronzoni Healthy Harvest and $1 off 2 boxes of Ronzoni Smart Taste products.) Also at Food Lion I used the $5 off 5 Kraft coupon, the Kraft Philly cream cheese was $.25 each or $1.25 for 5 making it a good bargain shopping day at Food Lion!

  • kcampbell113 Oct 7, 2010

    I was in Lowes Foods tonight at Brier Creek. They have the Barilla whole wheat pasta on sale 5/$5. I had coupons from the paper for $1 off 2 boxes so this made it 50cents a box. Pretty happy. Guess I will be making Mac and Cheese with this and all the Kraft cheese I have bought recently.

  • baseballmomma Oct 7, 2010

    Last night I got 8 roll Bounty Basics paper towels for $2.98. Value $7.99, on sale for $3.98- $1.00 coupon= $2.98. This is at the IGA in Four Oaks for anyone close by. They also have Ribyes for $3.98/ lb for those who have been trying to find them on sale like myself.
