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 paper 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.

    FYI - Food Lion is going to be accepting competitors coupons in select markets as soon as next week. I have spoken with FL media relations and they are getting back to me to let me know if the Triangle stores will be accepting them. That would be a super move on their part! I should have more info later today (Thursday).

    Unfortunately, Food Lion added these coupons accidentally to our accounts and they have removed them. They really had us all worked up there for a bit this morning!

  • momma2two May 4, 12:28 p.m.

    I saw 29 items for free on mine so I printed it to take to the store. I asked before I started shopping and I was told it would not be a problem. However, when I checked out, they did not come off automatically and the manager would not do it manually. Learn from my mistake and just get one item and see if it works before you waste your time getting everything (with a toddler in the cart).

    I have also, yeah 32 items Free!

  • mrbtj1 May 4, 7:56 a.m.
