      Has Food Lion changed their policy?  My store has been doubling up to 55 cents and will take competitor's coupons.  Hope this hasn't changed!

      • Melissa

        You must be in the test market around Atlanta.  Our stores double coupons and accept competitors, and I suppose if Food Lion likes what happens around here, they'll put that policy in place for all of their stores.

        • Karmah60

          I hope so, because they do not double, price match, or accept competitor's coupons here in VA.  And the cashiers aren't that friendly towards coupons.  I tend to avoid FL unless a really really great deal gets me in the door.

          I'm so jealous of ya'll, LOL.

          • sheryl

            It could be worse…You could live in Florida where NO stores double.  Like me  :(

      • Kvhoover426

        where is ur store???

      • Jpaden25

        Ours doubles to .60 cents and price matches – so anytime I have a coupon for an item that is .55-.60 cents I take the ad to food lion and price match. 

      • Stephanie

        Mine store double those too!

    • Ellie

      My Food Lion in the Richmond, VA area is giving one free Busch Gardens ticket for every $125 you spend on one shopping trip.  I asked and you can buy gift cards so Busch Gardens here we come.

      • Wethedeans

        What do the gift cards have to do with it? Do you put the busch gardens ticket on it?

        • faith

          My thoughts they would purchase 150 gift card….get busch garden tickets…and use the gift card on normal purchase like they would their credit card. So the person is gaining of Busch Garden mishap…smart!!

        • cherokee

          The gift card counts toward her $125.

      • Heather Ashley

        I give Food Lion gift cards at Christmas to folks that have done work throughout the year for us…..but I also like the idea of getting one for self.  What a neat way to keep on budget and get a ticket!

      Our FL is directly across from Bi-Lo.  FL does not double any coupons but Bi-Lo does and it takes the Food Lion $5 off $25 coups that were mailed out, as well as other comp coups.

      • SweetGirl

        How to get Food Lion 5 off 25$, never saw it before?????????????

        • Shirl

          I have had very bad experiences getting Food Loin to take the Internet Coupons that I print. Last time I took a coupon there, the cashier did not even try to scan the coupon.. she just refused it and said there were “too many faudulent coupons out there”.. well, she kept the items I intended to purchase tooo!! and I only go back there if I can get a bargain that I cannot pass up! I shopped there many years, but now I don't take kindly to being treated like a “thief”!!

    • Frances

      Does someone know a price for Ball Park Meat Franks, 16 oz, B1G1? THANKS!

    • Amber

      I usually don't even bother with Food Lion because the stores here in Hampton Roads, Virginia don't double or price match. And there prices are just too high and most of the time their “sale” prices are still too high!

    • SarahTurner9020140

      I just p a i d $21.87 for an i P a d 2-64GB and my boyfriend loves his Panasonîc Lumîx GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS.I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.
      Here is the website we use to get it all from, BidFirst.com

    • Lea

      My FL doubles up to 60 cents AND matches competitor ads!

    • Sandy

      My Food Lion in Lawrenceville, GA does double coupons up to $0.60 BUT they don't stack store and manufacturer coupons.

    • Mel

      There are $.50 Land O Lakes coupons on coupons.com today that will go well with the BOGO sale on Land O Lakes margarine this week.

      • Mel

        Apparently I can’t mention the website or what–half my comment got cut off after going through “moderation”?  Hmmm… anyway, sorry.  They’re actually $.40/1 on the Land O Lakes margarine and they’re on coupons dot com… or at least they were yesterday.  Would pair well with the margarine BOGO sale this week.

    • Merisa219

      Does anybody know if the Food Lion in Cleveland, TN does the meal deal?

    • Audley79

      i know a lot of people have given up on food lion due to them not doubling coupons.  But I load a lot of the food lion store coupons onto my card, and they match up to a lot of the manuf. coupons i have, and they stack the man. coupons and the card ones automatically come off when i scan my card.  So it is like a coupon doubling.  It works out really great when i have $4 off a razor or something like that, and i have the same Q loaded on my card.  I just got $8 off!

    • Beasbro1

      I talk to the manger in Dalton Ga Food Lion and he said that that all Food Lions will double soon!!!

      • jen

        I’ll believe it when I see it, but that gives me hope!

    • Lilbritt7427

      Min doubles up too .60 so better than most!

    • DukeBlueDevilFan

      If anyone goes to Farm Fresh they have liquid and powder Gain detergent on sale for 4.99. If you use the $1 off it doubles to $2 and final cost is 2.99 which is great! I bought 2 bottles today and got 2 catalinas for 3.00 off my next farm fresh purchase! So I spent 6 dollars and got 6 dollars in catalinas! Can’t beat that!

    • Wanda55

      I’m a newbie to couponing & I have a question. I have a coupon which says “Manufacturer’s Coupon” at the top but it states that I can only use it at Food Lion. Is this considered a store coupon or Manufacturer’s coupon?

      • Alisha20

        If it says only at Food Lion then I have only been able to use them there. Some of them have a store logo but do not say only at which means you can use them anywhere. I know Bi-lo accepts competitor coupons. I think a lot of it has to do with the cashier you get.

        • Wanda55

          thanks for your reply. I wanted to stack the coupons but I wondered if they would allow that since they both say manufacturers coupon.

    • Susan Danao

      I’m in Bluffton, SC and our store does not double and the cashier’s aren’t very friendly or accepting with coupons.  I had the manager and a cashier try to argue with me about the one coupon per purchase deal…I only go there when a great deal arises! 

    • laura

      Is $1.99 for OJ a good price? I know it doesn’t have an acorn next to it but I haven’t had it in ages and they’ve got the low acid one so I’m thinking yes?!

      • elaina

        yes its a good price.my husband drinks the simply orange and i just bought some tonight and it was 3.49 I believe.so 1.99 is a terrific deal.

    • i spoke with a lady that works at food lion, and even though everyone knows they don’t double coupons. HOWEVER if you load the coupons on your mvp card at foodlion.com and theres another site as well that you can load them on to your card at,a lot of the times you will find the same coupon.so in fact you “double” your coupons.

      Great customer service in Chatsworth – manager very customer oriented!!!

      On Tuesday, I’d stopped at FL and found reduced Perdue boneless breast portions – the kind in the Styrofoam packs that say “perfect portions” – but I didn’t have my coupons with me, so I called on Wed and they would be marking down more that day. When I got to the store, they only had chicken “tenders” so the coupon wouldn’t scan, and the clerk called the manager to override.  I explained they were out of breast portions and only had tenders. So manager left to check it out and returned with a bag of “perfect portions” which were not reduced.  So I asked them to void the chicken off my order and manager said they’d have to void my entire order b/c chicken was on clearance.  Not wanting to hold up the line any more, I said I would just keep the chicken b/c the person behind me had waited already and she said “hold on” and came back with one of those $5 off $25 order coupons.  I thanked her but explained I’d already used one of those coupons on my order.  She insisted and overrode for the register to take the 2nd coup0n!!!!  OMG!  I got $10 off my order instead of $5 and only had $3 worth of coupons!  WOW!!  I was impressed!  What a nice thing to do!  I mean I wasn’t disgruntled or anything like that.  

      I would tell you how much I spent and saved, but I was so excited I lost my receipt!!!  LOL

      The FL in St. Augustine, FL on US1 at Palencia has Equal Pink 100 packet boxes for $1.99, and each box has a $1.00 off peelie.  For those of you who use Equal, it makes for a good price if you don’t have any coupons :-)  Also, the price at the same store for the Meow Mix B1G1 is $13.49, making each bag $6.75.  This store is normally coupon friendly and the staff is very friendly.

      I have to post this b/c of all the negative post I done in the past about bad experiences at FL.   Since I had a wonderful experience, it is only fair to give them a Gold Star.  I went to the FL in Irmo, SC (near Kennerly RD) and got 10 Marcal paper towels (had rainchecks, but they were still on sale $1)for FREE, 2 boxes of Platex (and got a $2 Q print off when I left), and 4 boxes of CoaCoa Puffs (on sale for $1.75 and had $0.75Qs=$1 ea) and paid right at $9 w/ tax.  The amazing part is it was the 1st time at any FL that I did not have a Q beep (had 16).  Got in & out.  It was great.  Even had the cashier ask me where I got my cereal Qs
