Food Lion Weekly Ad 5/13-5/19

on 5.12.2009 at 10:27pm

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

Your Food Lion deals starting 5/13 are looking a little better than last week. I would say the new Kraft printables have helped.  This is still not my first choice for shopping but there are some good savings to be had.

If you see anything I missed let me know! Check out the current printable coupons before shopping.

1. Check with your local store about B1G1 items. Ask “Are you required to buy 2, or will they each ring up at half price?”
2. Most Food Lion stores do not double coupons.
3. If you do a B1G1 deal, use 2 coupons if they will let you.
4. You can stack a FL printable or other store coupon with manufacturers coupons.

      If you go directly to coupons.com for the bbq sauce coupon there is also a $1 off any kraft delxue or velveeta box making it .66 each. These are also available directly from kraft as I was able to print a total of 4(2 from each site)

    • Teia

      There is a $2 off any Edy’s Ice cream flip out that will make the ice cream .64 for one.

    • Lorie

      Hi Teia – where is this FLIP for $2 off Edy’s Ice Cream – I didn’t see it on the FL Printables page on here. Thanks!

    • Oh yeah…here is something KRAFT had tear off for free croutons with purchase of salad dressing and also KRAFT had $1 off KRAFT dressing. I realize many of us will go to BILO as I did. I didn’t look for the EDy’s, but I will right now!!!!

    • What is up with all the LIMIT 2 free at Food Lion…looks like they would want as many sales as possiblt.

    • Perdue coupon http://www.perdue.com/coupons/perfect-portions-2009-5/ I had a Q for the short cuts from old old paper, but saw this while looking for more Q’s.

    • Sandra

      How long does it take for the Nestle Cookie Dough coupon to come? I registered at this website but all I got was a confirmation – no coupon. :(

    • Kay

      When the stores have the “Limit #” is that per day or per household for the entire duration of the sale?

    • Well the people know me in my local FL and I could care less about the LIMITS… and they know it!!! LOL I just asked about em’ usually you can do separate orders because the computer will stop giving the discount after the limit is reached. I guess it just depends on your relationship with the store…I know when HT did the triples I abided by the rules and saw several people go to the car and go right back in…you just never know until you ask the store manager. I think they want the merch sold and off the shelf!! ANd besides none of the limits they have are like buy one get the other for a PENNY or something.

    • Jenny

      Ran into problem today at food lion they were having buy 5 packs of pepsi for 13.00 but it did not include dr. peppers which i had picked up 2 packs. Went to customer service and asked to exchange to pepsi products not any problem there they decided to void transaction and start anew. But they couldn’t get the total back correct and ended up charging me .66 cents and said that was as close as they could get and this was a store manager. I assumed they would take it off the next transaction but they didn’t. Should I have said something

    • rosalind

      Some Foodlion cookies were 1.50..with the 1 off coupon…great deal! Also foodlion chips were 1.77…with the 1 off 2its an ok deal. And I saw a printable wise chip coupon online somewhere, like .50 cents off so 1 per bag is great (do a search)! ummm and there is a foodlion printable of a 1.00 off foodlion soda which is 2.50 on sale at my store…I believe it was from the guiding stars game. Oh and look out for a buy one get one Tacobell salsa coupon (I got the cheese ones and it worked) and 1.00off a healthy choice steamer when you buy 2 healthy choice soups… on the end caps or near the products!

    • In our FL it breaks down which sodas exactly are able to be used for the sale. Wally World has the 12 packs of COKE products $2.98 this week so with $1 coupon $1.98 about 16cents a can!!! Pretty good heh.

      ALSO ALERT the Neutra Air by Lysol starter kit is BOGO so use two of your $4 off coupons and get both for $4 I would suggest giving your FL card last….I don’t need any so I haven’t done the deal have about seven on hand in the cabinet.

    • rosalind

      Thanx travise, I saw that neutra air sale at foodlion and completely forgot. Also I’m not sure if someone posted but chinet plates are on sale 2 for 4 and there is a $2 coupon out from the recent sunday paper making them free!!!! And there is word that the A-1 marinade is 2/4 is still going and with the 2 off Q it is also free..(I forgot to check). Also there is a carpet fresh printable coupon for 1.50 off at carpetfreshbrand.com and they are cheap right now…I know i paid less than 50cents.

      I don’t have a Bi-lo, Publix, Harveys, or a Kroger around me..so cant cant get all the great Qs I see posted from them. And the Kmart, Walgreens, and Harris Teeter are 40 mins from me..in Boone..(yes I live in the upper western part of NC). So I shop from CVS, Riteaid, Food lion, Walmart…plus INGLES and LOWESFOODS.

      Now Lowesfoods is a great place to shop…they double qs .99cents and below (limit 20 per order), have triples, sometimes have monthly in store coupons that come with their ad, have e-coupons loadable on their card, connect to Upromise, plus have this great thing called Greenpoints where you earn them shopping with their card. Greenpoints don’t expire and you can save them up to get money off an order or pay a cheaper price for certain foods OR save them up big time to go to their Greenpoints website and redeem them to get cool items that range from home furnishings to clothing to gift cards to auto to electronics…take a peek here. http://www.greenpoints.com/catalog/cat_use.asp
      You can also Shop online or participate in offers on the Greenpoints site to earn more points!

      ATTENTION!!!ohhhhhhhhh yeah I wanted ya’ll to know here is a link with info on how to update your mvp foodlion card before may22 to get a $3 off on next order when u scan your card after june 3rd. copy and paste in your browser.

      Just posted this again in case some skip my previous long rambling message and miss this. I Just want to help others and pass the savings! xoxo

    • outlaw0208

      Also Lean Cuisine is 5/$10. If you printed the $1 off 5 coupon recently before it expired you can get 5 entrees for only $9 – that’s a pretty good deal b/c these are usually priced between $3-$4.50 apiece.

    • Also, in our ad there are Bar S Jumbo meat franks on sale for $.89 and there is a coupon for $1 off of two

      It is a IE coupon.

    • OH, and wise potato chips http://wisesnacks.com/ Click down in right hand corner.

    • We had $1/4 Lean Cuisine q’s in our last paper inserts. Also, my FL has Edy’s marked $2.77 (not a bogo) and there’s a $2 flip- so $.77/1
      not bad!

    • anita

      If you buy 6 BBQ sauce (it will be free), you will get a cataline print for $3 off next purchase. (at Food lion).
      my store (Carrollton, Ga) also has the kraft mayo 2/5 and with the coupons from kraft it is even a better deal. I hope publix puts some of those kraft qs on BOGOF.

    • Yes, I got the catalina too. I wanted to let you all know though that, first, the wise coupon is for the cheese puffs — sorry. They are on sale as well, but it is not as good of a deal. Second, I tried to use all the Kraft coupons and then the $2 off produce and the register (and employee) would not take them. I wonder if you use those first and then gift the Kraft coupons if it would work. It was disappointing — I would have liked the $10 off the produce!

    • Angela W

      Wow! I just had a productive little trip to Food Lion. The cashiers were impressed with my savings. Spent $22.86, saved $29.47.
      Got one free BBQ sauce, 8 boxes of Kraft Deluxe mac n cheese, two boxes of frozen waffles, 3 bags of Rich Foods frozen snacks, Smart Balance Oil (I’m out, and had a $1 Q), Dreamfields Low Carb pasta (on clearance for $1.37) and an impulse buy of Hersheys white chocolate chips/macadamia nut chunks.
      I got a $2 off next order catalina – was that the Kraft macaroni?
      I found printable DreamFields pasta $1 Q’s, will go back and get more clearance pasta. I forgot to bring my Cole frozen bread Q’s, so will do that on my next trip too. Should have very little OOP with that $2 cat.

    • nancy

      I did good at food lion too. I shop here often. I have a lows store but do not undersand it too well. But they do double Qs. So I need to walk the alis. Also to the person who lives in nothern north carolina I am south eastern North Carolina. Can you teach me more about the deal in Low’s foods. Thank you.

    • nancy

      ps. I did see that Low’s food had a better deal on kraft mayo 1.98 than food lion did.

    • nancy

      do I have to upgrade my mvp card when I just did on U promise the other week.

    • Rosalind

      upromise is a separate type of savings. This upgrade is directly through foodlion because they are adding new types of offers to the card next month and supposedly there is gonna be coupons printing on your receipt and some stores are right now test driving a new card scanner to get coupons right there in the store… sorta like a cvs scanner.
