Food Lion Deals 1/8: Pepsi, carrots, lettuce, cantaloupe, chicken legs & more!

Posted January 8, 2014


Food Lion has some good buys this week on Pepsi, carrots, lettuce, cantaloupe, chicken legs, orange juice, frozen vegetables & more!

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.

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

These deals are valid January 1 – January 7, 2014.

    I went back in next day wed and spoke to the day manager about the evening manager giving me such a hard time I told her i had just told him to take it all back and give me a refund ( I so seldom get angry but he wouldn't listen to me and did keep looking at the sales paper saying look see there isn't anything for 30 articals it goes from 20 to 40 I could only get the $5) She said she would talk to him and apoligized MTMKJR I did show them the add but i think he was not going to admit he may be wrong or was as you say clueless I was so tired had just worked10 hrs wassn't in the mood to fuss. but i was right

  • thewayitis Jan 8, 2014

    Yes, the canned veggies were 2/$1 at my Food Lion in Hillsborough.

  • thewayitis Jan 8, 2014

    I was pleasantly surprised at my Food Lion today. I only had 8 FL items, so I expected a $2 coupon, but I got $2.50. Turns out that my deli items counted, too. Thanks, Faye, for noting that My Essentials items counted as well.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jan 8, 2014

    FYI - I did not get a Food Lion e-mail with a coupons link this week. Feel free to post your link of send it to me to post.

  • Kathy S. Jan 8, 2014

    Does anyone know if the fl canned veggies are still 2/$1?

    Did you show them the ad?
    Some employees really have no clue about in-store promos. But the ad is very clear.

  • labs Jan 8, 2014

    dean2791 I purchased 33 fl items and received a catalina for $8.25

  • dean2791 Jan 8, 2014

    yea but if you only are needing 30 they wouldn't give me the $5 and the $2.50 in one transaction their machine wasn't giving out coupons for the next visit first they said it already came off, then they said i didnt have thirty food lion products only 19 but when i disagreed they took them all out n counted them said yes there was 30 but you can omly get $5 since they were all in oe that's why i thought maybe some other fool like me wouldn't need 40 only 30 and it would be nice to know ahead of time

  • mtmkjr Jan 8, 2014

    @dean2791, you can actually get 40 per transaction

  • dean2791 Jan 8, 2014

    For the super sale if you want 30 food lion brand products from the super sale you would have to get 20 in one check out to get $5 and 10 in another check out for $2.50 it can't be bought all at the same time
