    • Kelly

      Hey, Jenny! Check your Alavert price…Thanks for all you do!!!!

      • ASmith

        3.75 each since it is buy one get one free and 2 – $1.00 off coupons.

      • Thanks I fixed it!

    • Don't see anything for me this week, I'll be shopping at Kroger, they seem to have the better deals in my area.

    • Amber

      Thanks! I always have trouble finding Food Lion's Store coupons until I find them here. I know you do a lot of Stores, any chance of adding Farm Fresh?? The only grocery stores I have in my area are Food Lion, Farm Fresh, and Walmart…
      Thanks :)

    • Nicole

      I see that the Marie Calendar and Healthy Choice B1G1 were on last weeks af and this weeks ad. Does anyone know the cost since it is not listed in the ad?

      • Heather

        At my FL in MD they were $1.86 each (that is the 1/2 off price). My daughter absolutely loves the chicken/brocolli alfredo so I pciked up a few of those:)

        • Nicole

          Thanks Heather, I use to live in Maryland but now in South Carolina. This gives me a good starting place on price.

      • tamionthego

        My Food Lion in Carolina Beach NC has them this week BOGO @ 3.29 we use the 1.25 coupon off the purchase of 2 our final price is 1.02 each!

    • IngridinSC

      Thanks for posting! I'm glad to see the sirloin tip back again. You can get this ground and it really does make excellent, lean ground beef.

      • saavy shopper

        do ground this yourself, or do you ask the butcher to do it at the store?

        • IngridinSC

          The folks in the meat department will do it for you.:) Just take your pick of the roasts they have, then take it up to the counter and tell them how you would like it processed. I usually get it ground, but I think I'll ask them if they can cut it into pieces for stew meat, too. Hope this helps!

          • sharon60

            Thanks for bringing this one to my attention! Would never thought of that! Going today!

        • candipittman

          And sometimes they have already thought about it and will have it in the case next to the ground beef. Just check the packages because it will say Sirloin Tip.

    • Leslie

      I just got back from Bloom in Anderson SC and they are doubling coupons up to 50 cents starting Wednesday. Limit 20 per day………..

    • MelonieW

      Thanks for posting. I can't wait to buy a whole sirloin. I may buy two and grind up one for hamburgers.

    • jessica2352

      how do you sign up to get the yes paper through the greenville news? I used to get it in my old apt but i have moved and i cant figure out how to sign up to receive it again. Any advise?

    • saavy shopper

      My Food Lion in VA Beach had Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner on clearance for $2.14! Match that up with the $3/2 Pantene coupon, and that's $.64 each! Craziness!!

    • Crystal

      I was at Food Lion today and found coupons for Kraft Shredded cheese in the store dispenser that were BOGO. (7-8oz packages) Check your Food Lions and see if they may have them as well.

      • Liz

        I also found the B1G1 free coupon deal for kraft cheese( Danville VA), pair that with 5.00 off 5 that prints automatically-WHAT A DEAL!!!

        • Erin Lisa

          I also found the coupon, and they had the cheese on sale for 2.50, so after coupon I got shredded Kraft cheese for only 1.25 each! Yaay! I can usually find good deals at Food Lion, just have to look for them. They had Bertollini pasta on closeout for 75 cents and I had 5 coupons for 50 cents off, so I got them for 25 cents each!

    • astridholliman11

      I found some blinkies at Publix that were $2 off 2 Kraft shredded cheese. Would make 5 packs of shredded cheese $3.50. 70 cents a piece.

      • Mandy

        I don't know if you have a Kroger near by, but they end up being free with the sale they are running if you use the $2off 2 coupon. HTH

        • a_shrader

          With Kroger's sale in my area, the Kraft is still 67 cents. But if I have the $1 off coupons for the Food Lion Sale, I could get the singles for 29 cents is that correct?

    • juliehf

      1.00/2 9 lives cat food on allyou.com/coupons…only one my cat will eat

    • Pamela

      I found LOTS of great clearance items in the organic section tonight. Back to Nature crackers and cookies were 1.00 – 1.25 @ my store. Also… Muir Glen pasta sauce .87, Arrowhead Mills flour .70/bag. Almond Breeze (aseptic) .70, Cliff bars .40 each, Kids Cliff bars (zbars) .25 each… With Qs, I got about $60 worth of food for $10.

    • Amy J.

      At my Food Lion yesterday, I found Dove Ultimate Anti-perspirant (Ultimate go fresh / refreshing/waterlily and freshmint scent only) on closeout for $2.14 each……I bought 2 and used two $2 Q's…..got them for 14cents each :-)

    • rsimms

      $o.60 off on land of frost packages of shaved ham and turkey in store

    • carrie horne

      I just got word today that the Food Lion on Longpoint in Mt. Pleasant has many items on Closeout… specifically all their Organic products. I'm not sure if this is for all Food Lions.

    • Jan

      Does Food Lion let you stack coupons? I would think using the store coupon plus manf's for the raisin bran would be a pretty good deal.

    • thecouponman

      oscar meyer bacon is bogo w/ $1.50 coupon

    • Cherith

      At my Food Lion in Welcome, NC, the Kellogs kids fruit snacks are BOGO at $2.79. I know there were $1 coupons a few weeks ago for Kellogs Clever Kids. With my coupon I got mine for 40 cents.

    • Linda

      Does anyone have the coupon policy for Food Lion? Had problems yesterday using b1g1 coupons with a sale.

    • Annamarie

      I just got back from FL and the Dove Ultimates (with the $2 printables) aren't part of the sale. However, they had the Dove Ultimate (go fresh) in the refreshing scent on closeout for $2.19 and I could use the coupon with it. 19 cent deoderant…of course I've done really well this week for my husband, 8 for nearly free. But, nothing for myself until now. :)

    • kim

      My Food Lion in Western North Carolina had Purex 3 in 1 sheets on clearance for $2.99 ($4 off). If you go to the Purex site you can print off a $1 off coupon making 24 sheets for $1.99. Also if you got the free sample in the mail there is a $1 off coupon in there, too.

    • kelli

      Breakstone’s Sour Cream is $1.99 at my store… still a good price after sale and q. I see potato soup in our future. I bought 2 5lb bags of potatoes and super cheap bacon last week.

    • Anne

      My Food Lion in NC also has Whole Fryers for $.49 / lb! Great for the weekend cook out we are having!

    • Sarah

      I got Edy's Ice Cream for $2.50. (Same price as Breyer's but not advertised?)
      I also used the 2 $1 coupons for Raisin Bran and they did accept it – a little over $1/box.

    • Stacey

      Hamburger Helper is already a great price. I bought 9 at $5.67 after coupons. At the register a coupon printed for $2.50 off of Hamburger, Chicken, or Tuna! Per the coupon, the deal is running through 3/21…buy 3 get $1.50, buy 4 get $2.00, buy 5 get $2.50.

    • Becky

      The Food Lion in Moonville (Greenville, SC) had a dispenser in front of the Kraft cheese for BOGO shredded cheese. Deal Idea: Buy five 8 oz shredded Kraft cheese at $2.50 each for a total of $12.50. Use 2 BOGO coupons takes off $5.00 and you get an automatic $5.00 off at the register for buying five. So you pay $2.50 for five packages of Kraft cheese. That's only .50 a package! Also, don't forget to scan your Food Lion card at the front of the store for coupons. I got a coupon for $4.00 off a $75.00 purchase and one for $2.00 off two Stouffer's 6-21 oz (which are on sale for $1.88 each). Also got a coupon for $1.00 off one Hot Pocket which are on sale for $2.00 and a coupon for $1.00 off a $10.00 purchase of beef. When they scanned it at the register, it took off $2.00. And the sirloin tips made some very lean ground beef and great looking stew meat.

      • kiko

        You can actually get a better deal by buying 6 packages of cheese and using 3 BOGO coupons. It'll end up being the same price, and like buying one and getting 5 for free.

        • Becky

          Yep, you're right. For some reason, that never crossed my mind, lol. I guess I was just too excited with all the coupons I found. Still I was pleased with my trip. The sirloin tips alone were worth going for! Had burgers last night and they were excellent!

    • Emily

      I think the strawberry deal should be listed in Publix… :)

    • ItsACouponThing

      One Dairy Deal Idea: Buy (2) Breakstone's at $3.58 and (3) Kraft cheeses at $7.50.
      Use (2) 60c/1 printables ($1.20) and (1) $1/2 store coupon,
      that comes to $8.88
      Get $5 off 5 = $8.88-5.00 = $3.88 for three cheese and 2 sour creams! (that's 78 cents each!)
      IF they don't have the $1/2 coupon, it will still only be $4.88 (98 cents each) Not too shabby!

    • Veronica

      I just found Jeanie-O Ground Turkey on sale at my Food Lion, Manchester, TN, BOGO at $3.99. Each package had a -$1.00 coupon so I got 4 packages for $3.98! Also, each package was 1.25 lbs! That's 5 lbs of ground turkey!

      • DonnaTN

        There's also a rebate for I believe it's $5 rebate when you buy any Jenny O product. I don't have it right here with me to read the actually words, but you can “swagbucks” it and find the form. I know you have to register to this newsletter of some sort to get the rebate. I know the rebate is for a while yet. Makes it a moneymaker!

    • Cyndy Carr

      I live in Beaufort SC and wanted to let you know about a great surprise deal I ran into in Food Lion. The Taco Bell dinner kits are 3 for $5.00. When I purchased 3 I received a $3 off your nest order at food lion from the register. I then went back & got 3 more dinner kits for $5 – $3 coupon = $2.05 for 3 kits! The register gave me another $3 coupon so I did the deal again with one small candy from the check out line so my total did not match the previouse order. You guessed it, it gave me another $3 off coupon. The salsa was on sale 2/$4 so I then got 2 jars of salsa for $4 – $3 coupon = $1 for two jars. They also has another brand of salsa 3/$5 but they were sold out – that would have been a great deal as well.

      • Tanya

        You really only needed to buy 2. Find 2 taco dinner kits that the original prive (pre-MVP) is greater than $8. This should cost around $3.60 incl tax. Then you will get a $3 OYNO cat coupon. Then go ahead and get 2 more, and so on . Rinse and repeat. The coupons roll.

    • My Food Lion had the Land O Frost meat for 2.99 BOGOF. Each package had a .60 off coupon. So the final price was only .90 cents per pack.

    • Angie

      My Food Lion here in Rocky Point, NC has the Green Works Laundry Detergent on BOGO and there is a 3.00 off coupon available on their website. Final cost was only 1.50 for a detergent with retail value of 8.99!! Also they had kraft cheese coupons that are B1G1 free – works great with the dairy promotion!!!

    • Erin Lisa

      I also found the coupon, and they had the cheese on sale for 2.50, so after coupon I got shredded Kraft cheese for only 1.25 each! Yaay! I can usually find good deals at Food Lion, just have to look for them. They had Bertollini pasta on closeout for 75 cents and I had 5 coupons for 50 cents off, so I got them for 25 cents each!
