    • Msubrit

    • Katkoupon

      It's not working for me. It says that it's not a valid number, but I know it is.

      • Tjvsmom

        Mine says the same thing, not a valid number. The first time I sent it I typed MVP# XXXXXXXXXXXX, so then I just sent the 12 digit number and it still responded, not a valid number. I am wasting text messages texting back and forth. I have not been there lately, have they issued new numbers or could mine be not valid anymore?

    • It's still active! Worked for me.

    • joeykat16

      Still works… Thanks!!

      Google Voice allows 100% free texts and calls from your Google Account. I suggest picking out an easy to remember number and using it with all of your cards. That way all messages are to an easy to ignore number.

      I know trying to get moms to get into Google Voice, but for the younger parents it is something free that has a lot of perks. (You can choose a number and search through the options, also, free calling from your computer to any land line in the States.)

      • 21 YrOldCouponer

        Didn't like my text… Annoying, still good to have for free calls anyways… Worth a look.

    • Hilda007

      Thanks – pretty easy, but you have to use all the numbers on the back (12 in all) It came back quickly telling me my card was loaded – I also just did a survey from a company for them and won a $25.00 coupon. Will have a great shopping trip – they are great on Friday mornings for mark down meats. Meats oxidize in the lights and turn color – they are not bad, but have to be sold for mark down. I buy and freeze plenty at one time.

      • Mcbrideta

        How did you get yours to go through, mine says 467467 is an invalid #?

        • Riggz4

          You might have done what did what I did at first. I first typed in the number like I was going to dial it. lol. I just now figured it out that I have to TEXT it then type in the words DOLESALAD. It worked just now for me fine once I realized what I was doing. lol.

    • Lisa

      How do you know that it is actually on your card?

      • Jenni

        They send you a text letting you know that it's there in one hour from the request

    • Bunnagain1263

      Still working, I got mine. Thanks!!

    • Laura

      Got my free salad this afternoon! Yay!!!

    • Lwomack4

      Will someone tell me how it text. I know how to text I just don't know who to text for this

      • Sue

        Did you get thehelp you need? Make a new text and enter 467467 into the address area. Then in the text area type dolesalad and send. You should get a text back asking for your Food Lion MVP card number. Enter that and send. You should get a text saying your info was recvd and a free bag of Dole Salad will be “on” your MVP card in an hour. I bought hearts of romaine lettuce and it didn't come off my receipt, but I didn't have time to go to Customer Service. Next time, though! It expires 2/15/11

    • Lwomack4

      What do you have to put in to text

    • Navre

      send DOLESALAD to 467467. You will receive a message asking you to reply with your MVP card number. I hope this helps.

    • Amber

      I was kind of skeptical when I read this b/c I've been scammed by other text deals (not from Jenny). I decided to try it anyway. I went to Food Lion, bought 4 boxes of Swiss Miss Cocoa, 1 can of Redi Whip, and 1 bag of Dole salad. They scanned my MVP card and the salad and Redi Whip came right off. Then, I used 2 $2 off coupons for the Swiss Miss (on sale for $1/box) and paid a total of $.08 for all 6 items. So excited!!!!

      • DonnaChas

        How did you get the Redi Whip to come off your card?

      • Kellyann1371

        Amber where did you get the coupons for the Swiss Miss?

    • Laurie

      I just did this…Thanks :)

    • Linda

      Went to go get my free salad today at FL. It worked!!

    • Sparklecat2009

      Thanks!!! Wheeeeee!!!!

    • tori729

      Worked for me just a minute ago! However it asked me if I wanted to continue receiving texts from FL and I said no, but then it asked me to opt out again but I'm afraid if I do that it will take the coupon off…

    • Mandy

      mine didnt work. The text part worked it said my coupon was loaded (i did this this morning) this evening i went to the store and it didnt take it off. The mgr fixed it for me so i didnt have to pay (i had to show him the text, but he had no clue what it was all about) But to keep me happy he gave it to me free even though it wasnt loaded to my card!!!??

      • Mlkdivine3

        The same exact thing happened to me! I'm glad I saved the text!

    • Resturust

      My store does not carry Dole in the bag–have to visit another!

    • Cayman Richardson

      This worked for my husband and I. The cashier took off $2.79

    • freefalljenn

      My local store carries “Fresh Express” brand only….*sigh* Why offer a coupon for a brand that all Food Lion stores don't have?

    • Laurakc181

      Still works at 1:48pm 01/09/2011 :)
      Thanks a million!

    • Immn Native

      Says the number I ama sending to does not seem to be a correct #!!! Don't know what the problem is,,,,,,,

    • Kmlee29

      I had a rough morning as I made a quick stop into Food Lion to pick up the free salad and the free butter using a smart source coupon and a few other items. Of course when your trying to be quick it NEVER works out that way. First of all the associate told me that my butter coupon was a fake because you cannot print coupons from smart source. I let this one go and asked her to take off the butter (as she sighs). Then we came to the kelloggs cereal which was BOGO and I had two BOGO coupons. She told me she couldn't take these either, I asked why. She wouldn't give me an answer and said she'd call over a mgr. The manager came over started reading my coupon and said you can only use one it says so. I asked her to show me and she said oh this one doesn't but she said she still couldn't take it…. NO explanation !!! I then asked them to void my entire order. I left and then decided to go back in to get a customer service number and they (4 associates) were standing there talking about me!!! Unfortunately CS is closed on Sunday, but they will be hearing from me tomorrow. I was just curious if anyone else has had issues with them. I don't normally shop there because they don't double coupons like all of the other stores in my area but if they have a deal I will stop in.

      • Julie

        How many boxes of cereal were you buying in total? If only two then really stop and think, the coupon says buy 1 get 1 free. So the answer is you must purchase and this means pay a fee to get the other one for free.. This is self explanatory.. Its all in reading the coupon. As for the store not selling the product, if you have more than 1 location of a certain store call ahead, this saves you time and money. Not every store even if they are the same named store is subject to selling the same items, its a demographic thing. If a product does not sell in a store why would you stock it hoping to sell it? That leaves a company open to out of date products and reduced for quick, causing them a loss in profit..

        • Kmlee29

          Yes, I understand you must buy more than one box of cereal, I was purchasing four. I'm not quite sure what you were getting at with the remainder of your post though perhaps you were answering someone else in this post as well????? I mentioned nothing to get a response to “call ahead” and stores not being able to sell product that doesn't sell, but thanks for taking the time to reply to my post. Have a lovely day!

    • Jsduncan52

      went to get my salad and the store here does not even carry it – that stinks!

    • Jennifer B

      It didn't work for me at the store. Did you have to purchase a certain kind of Dole salad?

    • Altmansgirl247

      What a mess! I was so excited about possibly getting a free bag of salad. I test the number this morning. This afternoon, I get a text saying to “reply back to the text using my foodlion mvp card #”. I text back, the whole time, thinking, ” This is Great!”. Well, I received another text saying they could not recognize my message. So, I tried again. The same thing happened. So I got a text that said text “help” if you needed help. So, I text “help”. I then got a message with a phone number to call. I called the number, and got an operator who told me he would try to connect me with the person I needed to speak with. He finally came back on the line and told me he could not get in touch with the person. Asked me if I wanted to leave a message. I told him I wasn't sure, that I was calling about an offer from Foodlion and explained what it was. He said he didn't know anything about it. That the person who's number I was trying to reach was deaf. So, I am at a loss on what is going on with all this mess. A free bag of salad is NOT worth all this.

    • Melissa

      My free salad did not come off my order, I went up to customer service and they were real nice about it, I showed him my text and he said ok, gave me back my 2.74 and told me he was sorry for any inconvenience :)

    • Mandi

      Mine worked like a charm. I bought the Dole Spring Mix and it came right off automatically. :-)

    • Karichie3

      I bought a salad and the bottom of the receipt SAID I got the salad free but when I got home and started looking at the receipt, it definitely was not free. I called the Food Lion customer service and they got all my receipt data and are looking into the issue for me…So everyone should DEFINITELY calculate the pricing to ensure the coupon is applied since mine wasn't.

    • Emmy Roth

      Hope this works. emroth1105@aol.com Still trying for my salad.

    • carol Aarne

      hope i will like it
