Food Lion Deals: Celery, apples, ham

Posted December 19, 2012


Food Lion has some good deals this week on ham, celery, apples, green peppers, butter, Sprite and more!

These deals are valid 12/19 - 12/24.


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 1 coupon per product. No e-coupons will double. Click HERE for more information.

Joy it Forward opportunity: Support the Hunger has a Cure Food Box campaign at Food Lion stores by purchasing a $4.99 food box or making a donation at the register. Donations go to Feeding America and local food banks.

    mwilson & dragonslady ~ when i scanned my card i didnt think i had anything for free either but it was on the bottom left hand side and very tiny if i might add. It definitely wont scream out at you. I almost threw mine away and figured let me lookover it once more and there it was.
