Posted October 7, 2015

Food Lion has some very good deals starting Wednesday, October 7 including chicken thighs and drumsticks, baby carrots, bottom round roast, Michelina's, Hunt's pasta sauce, 7UP, Suave body wash & more!

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.

These deals are valid October 7 – October 13, 2015.

    Aha... and that explains the cleared shelves in the frozen veg aisle today.

    EI bound - I don't blame you for buying at HT and then hauling it down with you to the beach. I'd do the same thing!

  • EI bound Oct 6, 2015

    Like you Faye I hardly ever spend 40.00 at food lion at one time. Harris Teeter is my main store but unfortunately when I am in Emerald Isle food lion is walking distance from the house and Harris Teeter is 20 plus miles away. Most of the time I do my shopping in Cary and haul my groceries with me as it is much much cheaper to do that . Thank you for all you do.

    EI bound - it is. The Shop, Collect, Earn $20 Promotion is a different one and it runs through 11/24. You have to buy $40 or more each week and collect 6 out of 8 weekly tickets. You can see the details on the deal list.

    I don't ever spend enough at FL to qualify for these promos, but if FL is your main store, you may be able to get the $20 coupon.

    I think today is the last day for the quarter back promotion
