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.

Quality Guarantee: Food Lion offers a double money back quality guarantee on all Food Lion store brands.

    What a shame, this seems to be regional because eastern NC Food Lion paper and store has Mueller pasta on for $.99 not Ronzoni…bummer!

    Angel2000, I am no expert on cilantro, but it goes into any Mexican -- think salsa, guacamole, etc. Raleigh Food Blogger (aka RFB) uses a lot of cilantro and can help you with it much better than I can -- why don't you post your question over on the daily questions thread and she'll probably see it and be able to answer you.

  • angel2000 May 14, 2014

    I like to use herbs and such but what do you do with cilantro? May be a silly question, but I'm only familiar with basil when I make pesto.

  • RaleighFoodBlogger May 13, 2014

    Thanks Faye- great deals! And yes, they do have the best cilantro (in my opinion), and it's always less expensive!!
