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.

    corbin04: If you have access to BJ's, Sam's or Costco, boneless pork loin (from which you can cut chops, cutlets, or roasts) runs from $1.88 to $1.99 in general and is a great value with very little waste, especially if you can carefully freezer wrap future servings.

    Corbin, that is a decent price on the pork chops.

    radiobrain, it has been their policy for a while that they do not allow stacking. With that said, some FL stores do allow it, although none near me do. It is unfortunate that they do not allow stacking of store and manufacturer's coupons as that would certainly make their prices more competitive.

    The policy is here:

    The wording on the policy is that customers may not use more than one coupon per item.

    If your store allows it, then enjoy the extra savings.

    I am surprised to read that stacking is not allowed per policy. I did not know the policy and asked the cashier, who also didn't know. We tried it and both coupons, store and manufacturer, went through the transaction, so I have been doing it ever since.

    Faye, that is a good price on the pork chops/bone in right?
