      I can't find the coupon for the lil smokies? Whenever I click on the link that coupon doesn't come up. Is there a different zip code?

    • Coke products here are $.99

      • heather

      • julie

      Tega Cay FL didn't have the half boneless pork loin for $1.97/lb. They only had whole boneless pork loin for $3.49/lb. :(

    • Scarboroughs

      So this is kind of my first run out on this coupon thing… not a good experience. I went to Food Lion to get my cereal… First of all they only had three different ones that were BOGO, then they would not let me use two coupons for my purchase… I bought one Honey Nut Cherrios, and one Cin Toast Crunch. I could only use the $1/2 of GM they would not let me use the $.55/1 Honey Nut… I was really annoyed because for a newbie this is a lot of trouble to go through not to get the savings you are expecting. True enough, I got two boxes of cereal for less than I would usually pay, but I could not use all the coupons for my purchase.
      Very disappointing, very discouraging…
      How are you supposed to get these “great savings” if they won't let you use more than one coupon for the same item?

      • Dmc92300

        It takes a little time to know how to coupon. Be patient and have an understanding of the store policy and rules before going.It will make it a lot easier for you. Good luck.
        PS I made sure that I went over the instructions on SS website before going out the first time. I was a huge help to me.

        • Wcushelley

          I have had a really hard time using coupons at Food Lion. It was my main grocery store until I started reading Southern Savers. I wish that they would be more coupon friendly like our Bilo in town.

          • Tbellcma

            I agree food lion is not a “coupon friendly store” but they do have some good B1G1 offers. They were my main store until I started using coupons since they are 5 mins from my home. Now I travel 15 mins to Bilo. They are a “coupon friendly store” plus the gas offer makes up for the travel distance.

            • Cathyhilton28

              My Food Lion in Kannapolis, N.C. is very coupon friendly. They call the coupon lady. The cashiers and managers laugh enery time they see my coupon binder and help me evey time I go in there. I love that I can stack a mq and a Food Lion coupon.

      • Marie

        If you were only buying 2 boxes, no store would let you use both of those. The $1/2 means $1 off 2 boxes. a 3rd box would have been able to use 2nd coupon. You can use more than 1 coupon on an item when 1 is manufacturer and 1 is store at FL. Good luck and keep trying. It is a game you can win, you just need to figure out the rules!

        • Tammy1065

          I have used 2 maufacture coupons on a B1G1 at publix and only got the 2 items

          • Lori

            If your coupons are, say, $1/1, then you can use one coupon for every item. If you have a coupon that is $1/2, then it counts towards two items. You cannot use more than one manufacturer coupon per item.

            If you have a Food Lion coupon (not a manufacturer coupon), you can stack it with the manufacturer's coupons. If you have a $x off your purchase coupon (ie, $5 off your next purchase), you can stack that with manufacturer AND Food Lion coupons. But again, only one Food Lion coupon per item, and one $x purchase coupon per order. Typically.

            Personally, I like shopping Safeway. My local Safeway doubles coupons under $1, and combined with sales, I get lots of great deals.

        • I was with you until you said “You can use more than 1 coupon on an item when 1 is manufacturer and 1 is store at FL.” The policy states that you may not use more than one coupon per item. Many coupons prohibit the use with any other offer.

          Before you get your hopes up, as a Food Lion customer service associate, I advise you to read the Coupon Acceptance Policy on the website and to educate yourselves about coupon fraud.

          When it comes to counterfeit coupons, everybody (consumers, retailers, and manufacturers) loses.

          Best regards.

      i ran across this http://apps.foodlion.com/foodlionnews/Default.aspx?archive=0

      Food Lion Goes Mobile with Free iPhone™ Application does this mean that we can use the app (i don’t have much experience with apps aka none) in the store for coupons and not have to print or what?

    • Tammy1065
