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.

The Food Lion Weekly printable coupons will be posted when they are available.

    Thanks so much for the info. It's good to compare notes as none of my friends are serious couponers. I really appreciate the link to the weekly smart shopper coupons.

  • losltp Jul 9, 2014

    I had that happen to me too - about the same time as you I believe .
    I wrote FL and asked about it , never got a reply but finally starting getting them again . Just like you , my sister had to signup again ( same MVP card ).

    Labs - I am guessing that you are already signed up for the Food Lion weekly e-mails and are just not getting the weekly coupons link anymore. I also stopped getting the coupons from them a couple months ago so I signed up again for the newsletter using another e-mail address (but my same MVP card) and I started getting them again in the Food Lion email every Tuesday evening. Here is the link to sign up:

    Labs - sorry about that - They don't send the coupons link to their e-newsletter subscribers until layer Tuesday evening. I did not have the new link for this week when I published the list Tuesday afternoon and forgot to take off the list from last week.

    The new link is now added to the main FL deals list and the coupons for this week include:

    $1 off $5 purchase in the deli/bakery department

    Save 50¢ on any one (1) Food Lion or my essentials animal cr @ckers (13 oz)

    Save 55¢ on any one (1) Food Lion or my essentials salsa (16 oz or larger)

    Save 65¢ on any one (1) my essentials or Food Lion liquid drink mix

    Save 65¢ on any one (1) my essentials or Food Lion frozen pizza (22 oz or larger)

    Are you talking about the "print coupons" button on the right side of the weekly email ??

  • labs Jul 9, 2014

    The link to the fl weekly printable coupons is no longer attached to the email and corporate says that the link can be found on some websites like this blog which is where i was able to find the link since i could not get it from the email any more. Does anyone know where the link can be found?
