Food Lion Coupon Basics

Food Lion does not double coupons.

They have no limits on number of total number of coupons they will take, unless specified in the ad. You may only use a maximum of 10 (ten) coupons for the same item per customer. This includes coupons that are downloaded onto your personal MVP Card.

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.

You cannot use Food Lion store coupons and manufacturer's coupons on the same item. "Stacking" coupons like that is not allowed per the Food Lion coupon policy.

You can see their entire coupon policy on their website HERE.

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 paper 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.

Quality Guarantee: Food Lion offers a double money back quality guarantee on all Food Lion store brands.

    I went to FL today to get the bounty and charmin deals. I was very rudely told by the manager that they don't take printed coupons anymore. And said since I had more than two that I was cheating the system and basically accused me of copying them. I was very upset. I printed 4 total. I don't think that's outrageous. Anyone else have this issue?

    Superturfguy re homeschool teacher discount. It wouldn't hurt to ask. The manager may ok it if you have proof that they will accept. Not sure if the school systems give you a letter or something you could use to show that you are homeschooling.

    Do you think it includes homeschool moms with id?
