    • I have a question about the printable Philadelphia Cram Cheese coupon: It says “Retailer Coupon” at the top, but then the bar code starts with a “5,” which means manufacturer’s coupon, correct? So is the “retailer coupon” at the top really sort of a fib to get us to only use it at Publix? Will I have a problem actually using it at Food Lion, do you think?

      Thanks for all you do!

      • Jenny

        The retailer is a fib, that’s a great way of putting it. These are manufacturer coupons. Having a problem using though… thats a tough one. If it helps the philadelphia CC is $1.25 starting at Publix tomorrow too…

        • michelle

          You could also price match the foodlion ad (philly cream cheese) at walmart and they will also accept the publix coupons. Hope this helps!

    • Sara B

      Awesome! I’m almost out of laundry detergent and was hoping for a deal in the (very near) future lol. Thanks for all you do Jenny!

      • Bridget

        I am with you! 1 bottle of All left. Thanks Jenny!

    • JEB

      The Hefty plates will work for the Snow White rebate!

    • Melissa

      Last week-ish ShopText had some coupons, I didn’t realize it was only for FoodLion, I thought it was manufacture coupons. So… I coupons for free products at Food Lion, does anyone know if they are affilated with Kroger or another grocery store. It’s free and I really want to use the coupons… the store also says it can’t be exchanged. What to do….

      • If you have a Reid’s grocery store you should be able to use the FL coupons.

        • kelly joy

          No Reid’s either! I’m in Michigan- I just love Jenny’s deals. Usually the prices are a little higher here- but still good!

    • Robin

      I’m not being given the option to print this list -am I doing something wrong? Thanks for all you do Jenny!

    • Jill

      When I click on the link for the 2.00 off 6 produce it takes me to Food Lion printables but don’t see the coupon! Am I just missing it? Thanks for all the hard work :)

      • Samantha White

        I ran into the same thing. No coupon $2 off coupon in that link.

    • Annie

      For those who live near the new Food Lion in Columbia, I received a $10 off $25 grocery coupon in the mail.

      • Marlene

        Yay, got that one too.

    • Jess

      Does the ground beef count as “Butcher’s brand beef” and thus qualify for the coupon?

      • Laura

        Yes… if the label on the meat says “butcher’s brand”… it’s basically the fresh red meat that is prepared right at Food Lion. Most of what you would pick up in terms of ground beef, is “butcher’s brand”. But it is clearly labeled.

    • Angel

      I cannot get the $2 off $6 produce coupon to work . It just brings me to the generic coupon page! I would love this coupon!!

      • Jenny Owens

        If you go to the “grocery store coupons” link at the top of the southern savers page it will take you to all of the food lion coupons and you can print the produce coupon from there!

        • Kim

          I still can’t find the $2 off $6 produce coupon? Is there another way to get to it?

    • Kim

      My FL (in Va) has alot of their Green Works products on closeout for less than 2.00 so with the store q they are free plus you receive a cat for .50 off your next purchase.

    • Holly

      My foodlion in virginia does not take printed coupons at all! i hate it!

    • Question: We do not have any Publix /Bi-lo stores in NC ,can we use their cpns at FL or Wal-Mart?

    • Kristen

      I don’t see the $1 off ritz cracker coupon in the link that takes you to the ecentive save-a-lot site. Any tips on finding it?

    • Erin B.

      I don’t know how widespread this is, but the Food Lion in Ellijay, GA had their bananas for .19/lb today. I asked the produce guy, and he said that it is certainly a mistake, but that as long as they show .19 in the computer, they are selling them for that price. Even the staff at FL were stocking up on bananas today. I don’t know how long it will last. But with the $2 off q, I got three bunches of bananas, a pineapple, and a 3 lb bag of potatos for $4!

    • Tanya

      Anyone else get a $2/$5 produce q?

      • Kelly

        Yes, I was thinking why is everyone so excited about the 2/6 produce when there is a 2/5 produce:)

    • anita

      if you buy three hillsfarm smoke sausages, you can send in for a free cookbook.

    • AKelly

      Thanks so much for this list! I’m in central Virginia. I just went to Food Lion, spent $13 and saved $20 :) Yay! Also, I bought 2 Alpha Bits cereals at the $5/3 price, used the $1/2 Post Cereal coupons, and the machine printed out a Catalina for a $1 off my next order thanks to Post Cereals! Unexpected $1 bonus there! Yay again! Our sale included Armour Meatballs at $5/2 frozen bags, and there’s a $1 FLIP for these. Of course my FL was out of them :( Raincheck! Couponing is such fun.

      • Cindi

        Lovin the catalina for the Post Cereals! Bought 8, used 4 coupons, received 4 $1 catalinas back, gonna go get 4 more boxes with 2 coupons and the 4 catalinas and pay .66 per box!!!!

        • Cindi

          OOOOPS! Meant .16 a box !!!!

    • Beth

      The Food Lion in Dallas, GA had their store brand size 3 diapers (only size 3) for $3.99 (35/pack). Thanks, Jenny for providing this service for us to be good stewards!

    • Jen B

      Not a big fan of food lion, but…
      went today to get chicken on sale and found they had a 10 pound bag of leg quarters for $3.90. This is 39 cents a lb. Wow! It has really large pieces, my husband an I broke them down and had 9 quarters in each bag, huge pieces. A really good value in my book. This is in the Charleston area.

    • Shirley

      Is anyone having trouble with the hillshire lil smokies Q? I can’t get it to print. Keeps telling me to install coupon printer. Please help if anyone has had success. I really need these for a party.

      • Denise

        I was having the same problem with a coupon a couple of weeks back. I spoke with coupons.com customer service and the woman said that if you are getting this error message and you already have the coupon printer installed then it is most likely that the web address has been typed in incorrectly. I’m getting the same message so more than likely it is a problem with the website. I would email them and see what they can do. HTH!

    • Donna

      My food lion had huggies box diapers for 19.95, going to use my $3 off store q and $3 off box coupon. Got to stock up!!

    • Becky

      Just walked out of Food Lion and paid $2.40 for two bottles of All! Makes me sick that last week, when I was desperate and out I paid $5.00 at a competitor. Ug! Thanks for ALL you do! ;)

    • Kristin

      Does anyone know if there is a zip code for the sara lee pies?

    • kelli

      GREAT deal on glade holiday scents!!

      I walked into my store to buy some detergent and I happened to notice that all of the glade holiday scented 4 oz. jar candles and scented oils tins, glass holders, and refills were only $1.69 each. Of course, there were only $1.50 off coupons in any of the tins in my store (this drives me so crazy!!!) but I did have some BOGO and $2 off 2 coupons from a few weeks ago. I bought 4 tins and 4 refills and spent $3.27! and I’ll send it in for the $5 rebate. :)

    • kelli

      Oh, I also had to share…. I had a raincheck from the last time that All detergent was bogo, so I got it for $2.59/bottle before coupon, only 59 cents each after!!! I got 4 bottles for $2.88!!! :)

    • Caroline

      I went last week and our FL (in VA) said a fraud alert was sent out from headquarters on the Hillshire smokies coupon so they wouldn’t take them. That was a big dissapointment. Anyone else run into this?
