Food Lion Deals 10/1: Chicken breast, pork chops, canned beans & more!

Posted October 1, 2014


Food Lion has a number of good buys starting Wednesday, 10/1 including Chicken breast, pork chops, oranges, onions, canned beans, Dr Oetker pizza, Silk milk, 7UP and more! The $20 Holiday Promotion is back again as well.  


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.

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 FoodLion.com.

E-Coupons: You can now load RedPlum.com 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.

    Also keep and eye on their facebook page. They've had a couple of "Freebie Flash Deals" lately. They post a link and you enter your name and mvp number and they load a free item to your card. There was a limit of 1000, but I had no problem getting 2 freebies, Jimmy Dean Delights Smoked Ham sandwiches and a pack of Ball Park Angus Hot Dogs.

    baseball2hockey - thanks for the info! Did you use all caps or all lowercase? Can't seem to get it to work for me......

    i just tried it and it worked. I texted myfav first to mvpmvp. then i got a text back with instructions to enter my 12 digit mvp card and a favorite newitem in the store and then i received my free bag of chips that got loaded to my card. hope that helps.

    Amomoftwo - Thanks for the info on the freebie. I just tried it, although my mvp card only has 12 digits.

    No response yet from FL via text. Did you get one? Did you enter MyFav and a new product and the mvp # all on the same text?

    I got a mailer from Food Lion yesterday...with a coupon for free Pop Tarts and $2.00 off any breakfast cereal...and if you text MyFav to MVPMVP and enter your 14 digit MVP # and your favorite new product, you get a free bag of My Essentials potato chips loaded to your card. Limited to the first 4000...I just did it and it was easy and FREE! A new type of marketing for them and it's was effective!
