An awesome coupon from Food Lion was just released for $5 off $25 purchase. You can print this coupon from Food Lion’s website or from a PDF file.

What makes this deal super fun is that you can print it and use it at Publix stores, as long as they accept Food Lion as a competitor.

This coupon expires 6/5 – so you have all week to use it!

    • my bilo wont take these anymore. The manager told me that it states on their website that a coupon must be for an item not dollars off.

         I use the HT coupon from recyclebank for $10 off of $50 at Bilo’s in Charlotte at two of their locations and they have accepted them.

      • Ribbitz123456

        The bilo I shop at will take these.

      • I went to bilo last night. They told me the same thing “a coupon must be for an item not dollars off”. :( I think this hasn’t always been true. The cashier was friendly about it, so I wasn’t too disappointed. 

    • Kristyknash

      I was told at Harris Teeter in NC that a coupon for the entire purchase is the only competitor’s coupon they will accept.

      • Kristyknash

         Just realized that wasn’t clear- Harris Teeter will also take this coupon

        • ahlers0514

          Harris Teeter will only take this kind of competitor coupon if it is an original, as in from the Sunday paper, flier or mail. They will not accept an internetvprintable version.

          • Amber

            depends on  your HT. The ones near me accept them. (Wake Forest, NC)

          • guest

            just used coupon at harris teeter matthews festival and had no problem.  was able to print as may copies as i wanted because my printer asked how many copies i wanted.

            • Juju3646

              Can you do that since the bar codes are still the same

      •  Some may, but be warned that their corporate policy is not to accept any internet printable competitor coupon, so a cashier could refuse it.

    • mj

      Woohoo! Thanks Jenny!

    • Hmmm…Deals aren’t looking that great at Food Lion. Will Ingles accept this coupon?  My Publix only honors Bi-Lo & Ingles coupons.

      • Pj_mm33

        no, ingles is a party pooper and dont take any competitors!!

      • Pj_mm33

        no, ingles is a party pooper and dont take any competitors!!

    • maehingo

      Yeeeepee:) thanks Jenny!

    • M_corbelli

      Anyone know if you can use this before coupons? In other words, would it still work if your total goes below $25 after using all coupons?

      • Amber

        depends on the cashier and when they scan it. In general, no, you have to have total above $25 after coupons.

        • mommyof1

           letting you know at publix i always hand over these type of coupons first and never had any problems. =)

      • I did it today.. I had my total 25.76 before tax, handed this over, she took $5 off and then I handed over the rest of my coupons..

    • Can you use more than one of these?  like if you get $50 worth of stuff could you use 2, or maybe do more than one transaction?

      • tori729

         It says “one print per customer” so Food Lion will probably not let you use more than one.

      • do more than one transaction..

    • tori729

      Awesome, thanks!

    • Shaq2mh

      For some reason my $5 coupon didn’t print and when I went back and clicked on print it says that it has already printed.  Can anyone tell me how I can try and print again

      • pamgam

         Click on the PDF File above and see if that one works.

    • Lilchickfarm

      The bi-lo in cayce SC wouldn’t take this coupon.

      • Lucinic

        BiLo on St Andrews accepts them

        • Mackechnierl

          The last time I was in this store the asst. manager would not allow me to use a competitor q that wan’t item specific. My q was from Food Lion and was $5 off any $20 purchase, I was very disappointed. Glad to hear you have had better luck.

    • Mcleodsc

      HIP-HIP-HOOREY!! (sorry for the spelling) The Publix in Columbia on Rosewood considers FOOD LION a competitor. Per their written coupon policy you can use one of these on your order!!!!!! Back from vacation and ready to get back to couponing!!!!

    • Daniellebrown684

      does bi-lo accept this as a competitor?

      • Sc_redsox

        Several bilos have told me they only take competitor coupons for specific items not $___ of a $___ purchase type coupons.

    • Sandy565

    • Titansdime

      I’m just learning all about purchases, transactions, etc on the coupons terms. This one is confusing for me. Could I use this coupon for separate orders of 25$ to get 5$ off each one? or 5 off every 25$?

    • Dlsans1432

      Bilo says they will no longer take this type of coupon…too many people using Walgreens RR ect…

    • Herndonquad

      will harris teeter in Florence take it?

      • Guest

        Harris Teeter will not take competitors coupons that are internet printed – it’s in their policy.

    • Lydia

      Or you can use it at Bi-Lo.

    • Cynthia

      That is so cool!! I was just getting ready to go get my $14 of Le Bleu Water, which I will get refunded for, and now I can buy an additional $11 worth of other grocery items for only $6!  I like. :)
