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

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.

    I haven't gotten any Shopper's Companion emails in the last two weeks either. I have complained about it on the FL facebook page and called the 800 cust serv number. That's 1-800-210-9569. The lion on Facebook is named Kenyon and his email is < >
    They need to know multiple people have not receivedthe shoppers companion in two weeks. Faye used to have a link in the FL coupon section here. Can we do that again?
    Thanks, Julia

    Mine stopped as well and I am trying to get them to send them again. I am calling them again tomorrow.

    Angel, I always get the FL coupons email. This week the main coupon is $1 off any frozen item.
    Maybe you should call FL customer support.

    I haven't gotten any FL coupons sent to my email address in 2weeks. Are they not doing that anymore? I'm just wondering b/c I loved the meat and veg. coupons they always had.
