Food Lion
October 13– October 19

 

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 NC State Fair Admission on Thursday October 21 when you donate 4 cans of Food Lion Brand Product to support Hunger Relief Day! Regular Fair admission for adults 13 and over is $8.00 so this is a great deal.

Kraft PROMO: Save $5 instantly when you buy 5 participating Kraft products including Triscout, Wheat Thins, Kraft Mayo, Miracle Whip, Oreos, Jello 6 pack, Shake and Bake, Maxwell House, Oscar Mayer hot dogs, Crystal Light, Kraft sliced cheese and shredded cheese, Oscar Mayer carving board deli meat and deli fresh meat, Lunchables. This is a great time to couple the instant $5 savings with the $5/5 printable Kraft coupon I have posted about many times in the last few weeks. The link is in the box above.

Free Turkey Dinner Promo: Shop 6 of 8 weeks and spend $45 per visit from September 29 – November 23. 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.

1-2-FREE Dinner Meal Promo: Buy the 3 items listed for a breakfast meal (juice, cereal , oatmeal), the 3 items listed for a lunch meal (soup, canned chicken and tortillas) and get a dinner meal free including pasta sauce, pasta and salad dressing (but no actual salad is included). You can use coupons on the lunch and breakfast name brand items to get the cost down, but it’s not a great money saver.

    tahmorris - I spoke with corporate and they didn't know if we could do the GM deal more than once. They said to call a local store. I spoke with the Kings Grant location (401 and Ten Ten) and the CSR said we could only do it once. Hope that helps!

    Great job earlychd! Thank you for sharing your totals!

    Jenster - I am surprised that this deal isn't producing the cats for everyone. I agree though - cash is good!

    Irishiii - Great deal! Thanks for the heads up to check our Friday e-vic e-mail.

  • tahmorris Oct 15, 2010

    Can the $20 Catalina deal at HT be done more than once before the sales change next Wednesday?

    Thanks for the info Shay - could be that the register just wasn't programmed to give the cats for the items I bought, either. Enjoy your gift card!

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 14, 2010

    Only YOU would post that HG! LOL Thanks for the info - hard to believe restaurants charge so much for beer when you can get it for .55 a drink at the grocery store.

  • Harleygirlie Oct 14, 2010

    FYI, Food Lion has Miller, Bud & Coors on sale for $9.99/18 pk = .55 a beer. it's a GREAT deal.

  • shay1 Oct 14, 2010

    Ran in for sour cream for chocolate banana muffins and decided to grab 20 Larabars for the promo.

    No catalinas...but customer service was really nice at Chapel Hill North and realized the cashier scanned in 19, so they refunded those, rescanned all 20 and again no catalinas...then they tried again...finally gave me $20 in gift cards to use! I'll take that anyday! They did say that the cereal and other items were working just fine...

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 14, 2010

    LAXMom, I counted the sale price in my calculations for the HT GM deal so for BOGO items, I counted each item as 1/2 price (not the regular full price).

    ctya - You can use the $5 Kraft instant promo with the $5 coupon! Whooo hooo!

    Thank you so much, b4jesus2. I really appreciate the feedback!
