Food Lion has some good buys starting Wednesday, 2/12 including chicken legs, cantaloupe, Pepsi, Yoplait Greek yogurt, Coke, Arm & Hammer laundry detergent & 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 February 12 – February 18, 2014.

Olympics Gold Medal promotion: The Gold Medal Savings promotion taking place at Food Lion right now is offering some super savings on Powerade! Here's how the promotion works:

Buy 10 participating products and get $5 off instantly or buy 15 participating products and get $15 off instantly.

Offer valid 2/5 - 2/25/14. All products must be purchased in the same trip. Maximum $10 reward per shopping trip. There is no limit in the ad on the number of trips you can do.

There are a number of participating products including Coke, Powerade, Kellogg's cereals, Eggo waffles, Jif, multple P&G bath and beauty products and more. There is a long list in the ad and the items are marked in the store with a Gold Medal savings tag.  Please share any deal scenarios you find!

Here is the Powerade deal scenario:

Powerade, 32 oz., is on sale for .89 this week.

Buy 15 and the total is $13.35

Total after 2 coupons and $10 discount = $2.35 (16 cents each!)

Even if you already printed and used the coupons at Harris Teeter to get them free the last couple weeks, the total is 15 bottles for $3.35 (.22 each) - still a very good deal for these.
