Food Lion is becoming a fun store to shop! Although they do not double coupons, they do accept manufacturer’s coupons and they do run quite a few special promotions each week in their flyer.
Ways to Save Money at Food Lion
Food Lion puts out a weekly sales flyer on Wednesdays and the sales run through Tuesday night. Many of the sales items have extremely competitive prices, often better than Walmart prices.
With B1G1 Free, you do not have to buy both items at Food Lion. If you want one item, it will ring up half price (50% off).
First apply for your MVP card for free at the customer service desk to be eligible for all MVP sales and discounts. Do not buy anything in Food Lion without this card or you will be charged full price!
Second, sign up for the free Food Lion Shoppers Companion email newsletter. You will receive the sales as well as special coupons in your email each week. *I love the coupons- they are usually for meat, produce and a few other items.
Third, each time you enter Food Lion, scan your MVP card (or type your phone number) into the MVP Savings Center kiosk (big, blue machine near the front entrance). You will receive one or two sheets of great coupons to use. Some say “store coupon” and others say “manufacturer’s coupon.” The store coupons expire that same day and can only be used at Food Lion but the manufacturer’s coupons last for several weeks to months and may be used in other stores, too.
Food Lion accepts all manufacturer’s coupons but they do not double. Also, Food Lion does not allow stacking of coupons. So you cannot combine a Food Lion store coupon with a manufacturer’s coupon- you must choose one or the other.
Food Lion offers free digital coupons (called the MVP Coupon Hub) on their website that you can click and load straight to your MVP card. These may not be stacked with paper coupons, per the Food Lion coupon policy (see below).
The Ibotta cash back app works great with Food Lion deals! Buy select items at Food Lion and get paid back real money for your purchase. The great thing is that Ibotta is integrated with Food Lion so you do not have to take a photo of your receipt or scan your items’ bar code.
Usually twice a year (October-November for Thanksgiving and March-April for Easter) Food Lion does a holiday dinner giveaway. Shop 6 out of 8 weeks at Food Lion and spend $40 each week and get a ticket. Turn in six tickets for a free $20 gift card to spend on Food Lion food or merchandise.
Once or twice a year, Food Lion offers the “Big Deal Sale.” Purchase select items and specified quantities and receive money back for each item you buy. Coupons are allowed on top of the sales.
Once or twice a year, Food Lion has a “store brand sale.” Get paid money back when you buy a certain number of store brand items, any store brand item you want! The more store brand items you buy, the more money you earn back.
Food Lion offers daily dinner deals. Each night there are different items from the Deli offered at a discount. Add two sides for $4 more. Coupons can be used on these items, too.
