Food Lion has some very good prices this week on Yoplait yogurt (as low as free!), ham, chicken breast, butter, Dole canned pineapple, canned tomatoes and more! The Big Deal promotion continues for another week as well. Please share any other good deals you find!

These deals are valid 3/27 - 4/2.

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.

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.

The ad indicates that prices are valid for stores in these cities: Apex, Bunn, Cary, Clayton, Franklinton, Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Holly Springs, Knightdale, Louisburg, Morrisville, Raleigh, Rolesville, Wake Forest, Wendell, Youngsville, Zebulon. If you do not live in one of these cities, your ad may be different and you can check for any differences on

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.

    This morning, FL had Campbell's GO! soups for 2/$4, with a $1/1 coupon generated by the coupon machine in the front, making them only $1 each. There are also $.75/1 Qs from awhile back, making them $1.25 each.
    Still waiting on the Yoplait to be in stock!

  • cakesbymabel Mar 27, 2013

    There is Catalina printing for the Dole pineapple.
    I had $.75/2 coupons that made them each $.12 after the big deal promotion and coupon plus you get a $.75 catalina wyb 4! I will be combining this deal with the yogurt deal til I run out of coupons!

    The FL I was in also had a blinkie at the Tuttorosso tomatoes for $1/2, making those double size cans just $0.50 ea. Great price for the size.

  • FlyingUnderTheRadar Mar 26, 2013

    Our FL has a blinkie in front of the Tuttorosso for $1/2...which makes them .50 ea!!

    mindyswope - congrats on that happy new husband. May you coupon together happily ever after!

  • sarahcarucci Mar 26, 2013

    I always buy the lamb shoulder value packs at HT when they are $3.97/lb. That's my only reference point but obviously this is a much different cut.

  • alwaysab Mar 26, 2013

    Faye- what is a good price for lamb? Is the 5.99/lb too much?

  • mindyswope Mar 26, 2013

    I found some nice coupon booklets at my Food Lion yesterday near the cleaning section. It was full of Food Lion coupons for cleaning items, as well as some "summer" items too! There are coupons in the booklet to match up to the Big Deal Promotion! ie: Kingsford Charcoal on sale for $5.99 - $2.00/1 coupon from booklet, and the Big Deal promo = a very happy new husband who is anxious to grill this weekend :), as well as a coupon for $1/1 Kraft BBQ sauce that you can match up with the Big Deal as well!
