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 FoodLion.com.

E-Coupons: You can now load RedPlum.com 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.

    They must be closing several stores, it was in the Lexington, NC paper yesterday that one of their stores was closing the end of the month. Everything is 25% off.

    Interesting info. Thanks ladies!

    I didn't get the email, but I was at the store over the weekend and there was a note on the door that they were closing at the end of August. I spoke with some of the employees and was told that they, including the manager, we're all taken by surprise by the announcement. The only other FL I know of near there is at Woodcroft.

    I received an e-mail from Food Lion today saying

    "The Food Lion on 4215 University Drive, Suite A3, Durham, NC 27707 will be closing soon"

    No other information was offered in the e-mail, except that there were other Food Lions nearby.
