Fabulous cheese deal at Food Lion and freebie from the kiosk!

I scored a FANTASTIC cheese deal today at Food Lion! The Kraft 8 oz shredded cheese is on sale BOGO for $1.50 each. On the cheese shelf at the store at 401 and Ten Ten Rd (Garner/Fuquay area) was a blinkie machine with $1.00 off any 1 Kraft cheese with a touch of philly cream cheese. At Food Lion, the BOGO deals ring up at half price if you just buy one. They will also let you use a coupon on both items of a BOGO deal. The total after sale and coupon is .50 per bag!

There is a limit of 2 free so I bought 4 total, used 4 coupons and for $2 bought 4 bags of cheese - an 84% savings! Time to check your local Food Lion for the magical blinkie machine (red box attached to shelf that spits out coupons).

AND the in-store coupon kiosk also gave me a coupon for a FREE Dr. Pepper, Canada Dry or Sunkist 2 ltr soda! I bought the 2 ltr Diet Canada Dry Ginger Ale and it was FREE with the store coupon. I also picked up some apples for $1.29/lb and free Best Life fat free spray with the $1 coupon.  Thanks for the great deals today, Food Lion!

    So....2 bags of cheese with 2 blinkie qs?

    I need to hit FL more often. I was reminded of that last night running in for expiring free Ronzoni. The regular Ronzoni had peelies for $1 off Classico, BTW. :D

    I grabbed 7 boxes of Ronzoni Garden Delight and 6 tubs of Bestlife spread for 26 cents. I don't generally allow margarine in my house, but as a stopping point before donation I'll let it go. It says it has no transfats, so maybe we'll try one.

    Didn't hit the magic coupon machine, since it was 5 minutes to closing and I was just happy they let me in the door.

    I find awesome coupons in FL. I really do need to spend more time browsing there.

    I'll probably go back today and see if I can find more Classico coupons. My son prefers their alfredo to other brands, so if I can score a deal on it I'm all in.

    If you're looking for the cheese coupons in Raleigh....Falls/Wake Forest Rd - they have philly cooking cream, no shredded cheese, Six Forks/Milbrook - no coupons. Creedmoor/Milbrook has a blinkie machine for the shredded cheese...

    I got my free pespi product yesterday, too.

    BTW- There were multiple coupons (free and $0.55 off) and I DID leave them for others! :-) FL in Angier.

    Faye, Thanks for the encouragement. I was near a FL yesterday and decided to try to find the blinkies and get the deal you posted. YEAH! I found the blinkies (I hadn't realized FL would take a coupon for each BOGO) and got 4 bags of cheese for 50cents each!

    Not only did I get that FAB deal, I found a coupon laying on the cottage cheese for a FREE DAISY CC. YEAH! Someone knew that I needed a deal at FL.

    In all I saved 64%. Thanks so much for your class, I enjoyed it and it has helped to get me on track. I also appreciate your postings on here and the encouragement that you give us!

    The kiosk at the Food Lion in Sanford on #1 was out of order

    I got the free apply juice coupon yesterday in Cary! I was very surprised as the kiosk coupons have been worthless to me in the past..items I dont' buy and amts that aren't enticing....I hope this signals a change for the future!

    A friend of mine found this coupon link for foodlion. It is for $3.00 off a $8.00 purchase from the meat department. Good until 4-5-11.
    I printed it but haven't used it yet. Happy Thursday!
