Food Lion is running a new Big Deal promo and you can get up to $15 off instantly at the register when you buy qualifying items! The Food Lion Private Brand sale is also still running and there are a number of good produce, meat and diaper deals! I will definitely be making a trip to Food Lion this week to take advantage of the Private Brand Sale.

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.

Food Lion Private Brand Super Sale: Save up to $10 when you buy Food Lion store brand products. Basically, you get 25 cents off per product after coupon. You will get a Catalina register coupon to use on your next order. Sale good March 2 through March 29. There are some pretty inexpensive store brand products making some 10 cents or less after coupon. Look for good deals on jello, yogurt, canned cat food, tomato sauce, individual bottled water, individual soda cans and more. Please post any good deals you find!

Buy 6 Save $1.50
Buy 8 Save $2.00
