Posted October 2, 2013


Food Lion has some good deals starting Wednesday, 10/2, on chicken leg quarters, 7UP, Luvs diapers, snow crab clusters, pork ribs, grape tomatoes and more!

Please share any other good deals you find.  These deals are valid 10/2 - 10/8.

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.

Possible in-store coupon booklet for Women’s Wellness. Ad indicates to look for an in-store flyer rack with the coupon booklet. Please let us know if you see these and what coupons are included. Are they store or manufacturer’s coupons? Thanks!

    looks like from the list sbourgeois shared with us...FL wants to compete with HT in their P&G promotion. Just think HT with their zvr's and should be the better deal. STill...can't wait to check out some of those deals too!! OH WAIT...this week the $40/wk purchase through Thanksgiving promotion is starting. It's times like these that I'm REALLY happy doing all my parents grocery shopping for them now too. Only sometimes it's hard to share the deals between 2 families...wish they allowed 2 cards!
