Food Lion deals 8/3

Posted August 3, 2011

Food Lion has some good deals on Nectarines, cherries and chicken breast this week. Please post any other deals you find.



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.

    Edwards Singles are BOGO and the regular price is $2.99

    There were $1 coupons off one in the inserts not long ago. That makes them 50 cents each (two single servings in each box).
