      • Jenny

        I’m up with you guys :) Saying a prayer that everything comes back fine and you get to go home soon.

      • Hope all went well with your son. Those late-night hospital times are no fun… but I’m sure he appreciates your being there with him.

        • big john

          son is fine though i have told him next week we are going to tattoo parlor and have “dumbazz” printed on forehead. lacrosse 3 pound ball metal sticks and “no helmet”? i think it fits.

    • Angela

      Can you really use the Bi-Lo coupon for the Quaker products at Food Lion?

      • Angela

        I answered my question, lol. It did work and I got a great deal!!

      • Cindi

        I am concerned about this Q, because the Aunt Jemima frozen products are not listed on it, the pancake and waffle mix is….and my Food Lion does not take competitors Q’s …..

    • Lisa O

      Ok…I need help….it is posted above….Carrollton GA and the surrounding area is tripling coupons again this week. Go here to see a list of good deals.>>>> When I click on it, It takes me to Harris Teeter triples….where is the Food Lion triples??

      • They are just listed under Harris Teeter because that is the store that usually offers triples. It is just a list of good coupons to use when any store is offering triples! They will work exactly the same. Have fun!

        • Lisa O

          Thank you!!!

      • Stacy

        Do you know if they will take two coupons for B1G1 items? I’ve never shopped at a Food Lion before, but the possibility of free candy (Halloween stock up) intrigues me. TIA!

        • They usually will. Each item rings up at half price so you can use two coupons. I have heard that some Food Lions may be different so ask first but I would plan on being able to use two coupons.

        • Michelle

          I use a coupon for each of my bogo free items all the time without any trouble. As long as your using one coupon per item your good.

    • I am rushing out today to stock up on Smart Balance. I love that it has no hydrogenated oils. It feels great to be able to buy something healthy for my family at such a great price! I am so glad I buy six copies of the newspaper every Sunday.

    • Amy

      I am having trouble finding the printable FL chicken coupons; when I click on the blue link it tells me there is nothing there, then when I go to the FL site for coupons they aren’t there either. Can anyone help?

    • Hi Jenny! Thanks for posting these. I have a question about the Jenny-O Turkey Tenderloins. I have one of those Biggest Loser coupons (can’t remember how much it was for I’m at work and it is at home). Would that coupon work for this? I don’t even know if it has expired (but really hope it hasn’t)!!! I LOVE those Turkey tenderloins. They are so good.

    • Is there a coupon for the get $$ off your next purchase when you buy $15 in healthy accents products? Are is something printed at the register?

    • robin

      Does anyone know where to find the Food Lion Coupon PDF’s that have previously been available on this site? I have not been able to find them for a couple of weeks.

      • Jenny

        If you look at top of the page above the header there is a button that says Food Lion Coupons. That will show you everything that is out. If it’s not there then it is expired :(

        • robin

          thanks Jenny for your reply. I will let my friend know. We were so used to seeing it as a link that we forgot to look up :0) Creatures of habit I guess! Thanks again for all you do. Love the new comment format with the inset replies.

    • yolonda

      Does anyone know if Food Lion will be offering triples in NC soon?

    • rebecca



      • Lindsay

        FL will triple any coupon $0.99 and under. Depending on what you get, you can rack up see my post below. :)

        • rebecca

          so for example, they should triple .75 cents to make it be 2.25 off .50 to be 1.50, etc. correct? Is that how it works in GA?

          • Lindsay

            You got it! That’s why I love Triples! The unscrustables were 2.50 each and I had a 0.75 coupon which tripled to 2.25 so i got each box for 0.25. I think the 0.75 coupon was in 8/09/09 Red Plum.

            • rebecca

              great, thanks

      • kelli

        you can stock up for sure with the triples. my food lion had triples a few months ago. I hadn’t been couponing for long at that point and I still ended up with over $500 in groceries for about $25. It was pretty amazing. :)

        One tip that I will give you, if you do go shopping… keep an eye out for coupons in the store. I got quite a few things for free from coupons that I found on the items in the store.

    • Lindsay

      Went to FL this AM and got the following:
      (7) 4pk boxes of Smuckers Uncrustables
      (4) 2.6oz packages of Bumble Bee Tuna
      (2) Small jars of Duke’s Mayo
      (4) Yakoshiba (or something like that) noodle meals
      (2) Boxes of Barillo Plus Pasta
      (3) Boxes of Barillo Whole Grain Pasta
      Total before Coupons: $48.24
      Total OOP: $4.24
      I LOVE TRIPLE COUPONS! Also, for those in Carrollton, the Times-Georgian on Friday 9/18 had a coupon for $5 off $20 Purchase for FL. I am saving that for my next trip where not everything I buy will be pennys on the dollar. Happy Shopping!

      • leigh

        what coupon did you use for the uncrustables?

        • Lindsay

          I think the 0.75 coupon was in 8/09/09 Red Plum.

          • LeeAnn

            Do you get Overage with Triples at FL?

            • jj

              yes on the overage, I just went to Fayetteville GA.

              One thing to note though…they are expensive there! A lot of my coupons I ended up not using, for example I had a 75 cents off Welch’s grape juice in the bottle. Tripled that’s 2.25 off, but the juice was 3.99 for a bottle! If I really needed juice I guess it would be ok but not a spectacular deal. The one I liked best was the Reeses 55 cents off coupon, I used on an 8 pack of snack sized bars that was on sale for 1.25, free + overage is always fun.

              Anyway, my total was $58.00 before using my FL card and coupons, $14.67 after so I am not complaining but I think I’ll only go during triples or when I want to stock up on meat/produce and they’re having a good sale. Otherwise I’m sticking to Publix.

            • jj

              Sorry! I just replied yes but after getting out my reciept,

              NO, NO OVERAGE on triples!

              I didn’t scan through the receipt that well before I posted earlier, sorry!

    • Jill

      Does anyone have the link to the $3 off $10 Deli. I can’t find the link anywhere, probably not looking hard enough! Hate when this happens!

    • Ali

      The Chicken coupon on the FL site is for Tyson frozen chicken, not FL. FL frozen chicken is the one B1G1 right? Thanks in advance

    • My Food Lion has Breyers on sale for $2.79 and in the booklet (in store) healthy Community, there is a $1.50/1 Breyers ice cream (Food Lion coupon).

      • Sandra E

        Brandy! I just found that booklet today! I’m so upset that the coupons expire in a week! Do you know how often they put this booklet out? When can I look for another one??

    • Suzanne

      I went today, having never been to FL. I wasn’t as prepared as I could’ve been, but managed to walk out with $160 worth of groceries for $23! That is the best I’ve ever, ever done on that amount of value!

      • jj


    • Jamie

      Besides calling the actual FL, how can you find out if they are doing “triple couponing?” I am very new to all of this, find it so exciting, but I am a little confused with the whole triple couponing…

    • AngelaT

      Hello Jenny,

      A few days ago I asked you how much you paid for your Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers. You said from Nothing to .25 I think. Well, thank you for answering me and also I got them today at Food Lion for .17 each and the Birds Eye for .19. I brought so much stuff today with 15 of those items being the vegetables. I had 11 bags and paid 9.89 for them.
      Also, in the Fayette Citizen from last Wednesday there was a $10 off $25 purchase from food lion. Lots of items were gone like the Uncrustables, Bumble Bee tuna and the Mentos gum which was .99 in the fayetteville, Ga store. I will be checking back each day to get those items since I have like 8 coupons each.
      Thanks again Jenny. You are great and keep up the good work. We do all appreciate you. We wouldn’t know what to do without you and the time you put into helping us all.
      I am a single mom of two with no help from my mom or from my daughters father. I work a full time job and sometimes 12 hour days. I live on one income and just 6 months ago I was struggling to feed my kids. Now there is an abundance of food in my home for a small price. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!


      • john

        just wanted to say hi angela,in fayetteville as well. The products you mentioned gone were either gone or pulled off, as i was there very early weds and they were not there then. kinda put a hamper on stock up plans and a bit frustrating. good luck

        john r

        • AngelaT

          Hi John,

          I was there myself early Wednesday Morning about 0730. I was shopping with my co-worker and didn’t have my coupons ready. I was writing down the prices of all the things I wanted to get so that I could come back the next day with the coupons for the things that were a good deal and you are right those items were there at that time but the next day at the same exact time all of that stuff was gone. I might have saw you if you were there at that time I was in my Officers Uniform.

    • Laura

      Under the Kingsford charcoal, wouldn’t the $6.00 off pork printable (wyb participating products)work here? I have to double check, but I don’t think they’ve expired.. And then I’m wondering, would the free smoked sausage work as your pork item? I know FL doesn’t give overage so I’m not exactly sure how this would work…

      • joy

        I just used one, and yes, I counted the free sausage as part of my $6.00 worth of pork. The free sausage was a store promo, and the $6 coupon is a manu coupon, so I figured it was like stacking. I bought the charcoal for 6.99 (using a 3.00 Kingsford coupon). Then I got free KC masterpiece (2.08), the free pack of Hillshire farms sausage (value of 2.99), Food Lion bulk sausage (.99), hillshire farms cheddarwurst (2.50), and a package of FL ground beef (around 2.50, had a $2 Q). So, I spent $7 and got the charcoal plus approx. 10 worth of meat/sauce, and 2.99 of overage since the sausage was already free. Does that make sense?

        That being said, I did not get overage on any other coupons. They were only multiplied to the value of the item.

        • Laura

          Thanks Joy! That’s exactly what I was wondering. So you think that if I only “buy” the free sausage that they will adjust the coupon down? We don’t actually use charcoal…so I’m just trying to figure out if its worth it.

          • Tried this at my FL in Florence, SC but they will only take one coupon per item. The $6 off pork is actually distributed by Kingsford so they would not allow me to use a charcaol coupon as well. Very frustrating.

    • Wow! I love the printable list feature! Thanks for posting a great list.

      I link to you often under my grocery deals category. You’re awesome!

    • Beth

      As Jenny said in her prices above, the FL mac n cheese is 10 cents a box. The boxes were not where I thought they would be so I was being nosy in the pasta aisle. Their 6 packs of FL mac n chees is 60 cents, same price per box. When I went to check out, the manager told me I need to buy individual boxes to get the 10 cent price. I showed her the shelf tag and she had no idea. So, as the ad says, while supplies last on the single boxes, the multi-pack works too.

      • kelli

        wow, that’s good to know. I finally found these in the food lion in the town next to mine today. I plan on trying to get another 10 (maybe 20) boxes before Tuesday night. Can you buy 10 6-packs? that would be awesome!

        • kelli

          I bought 4 6-packs in one transaction. All rang up 60 cents. Thanks for the tip. These are a lot easier to deal with than the singles. :) I wanted to try to buy 10 but I really don’t need 60 boxes of mac & cheese, even at this price.

        • Beth

          I was in FL this morning. Up front they have a box with the Easy Mac Cups at 5/$4. On the price card above the items, there was a little box with a whole bunch of MQ $1.00 off when you buy 5. Makes it 60 cents each. My son loves these cups. Nothing like the 10 cent boxes, but these are easy for him.

    • When I try to click on the flip coupons it says this page does not exist?

    • Delores

      Just wanted to let you all know about this great deal for the pillsbury grands. I bought 4 of them — they are 4/$5. I had 4 of those awesome $1/1 coupon so only paid $1. But I got a $1.50 catalina off my next purchase from FL! So it was profitable!!!

      • Kim

        Thanks for the heads up!
