      Does Foodlion double coupons?

      • AWS

        No :(

      • ItsACouponThing

        The two stores I'm aware of doubling is Harris Teeter and Bi-Lo. Always check ad papers, tho. Ex: CVS offered $3 ECB wyb $10 Easter candy, but the bags were $4. Rite Aid offered the same bags for $2! Plus there was a $2/3 manu. coupon available.

      i sent the text, but no response. does it have to be in all caps?

      • crickola

        I did it with only the C in cap. and I got an immediate reply asking for my MVP number

    • julie

      I love this! I received a text that said it had been added to my MVP card and could be redeemed after 12:00 noon tomorrow. How convenient is that!

    • Several months ago I added my MVP card to my cell phone number and they texted me with the offer and not long ago I got an offer for a free 7Up, I don't remember how I did this but I believe it was through an email they sent or maybe just on the website.

      I love the Southern Savers blog and all the hard work you do.

    • julie

      I did this with the free 7 Up a couple months ago. It didn't show up when I bought it at the store though. I told customer service and they had no idea what I was talking about. I showed them the text on my phone so they took the cost off (about $1). I hope
      Food Lion will inform its employees of these promotions.

        Same thing happened to me with the 7Up deal.

    • HeathH

      Thank you! I just did it & it worked! I typed the text in all caps & received a response immediately.

    • misscoupondiva

      This is too cool! Is there a place where we can load more deals and discounts on our cards?

    • ncangel

      I don't have texting on my cell phone, but I've heard you can text from your computer. Does anyone know if any of a “text for free” websites that I could do this deal from?

    • Karen

      My phone says the number 467467 is invalid and that I need a 10 digit mobile number. What do I do? I tried adding my area code and that didn't work either.

      • ItsACouponThing

        You have to do it as a text message. Some companies only have a few digits. If it won't work on yours, see if someone else will let you use theirs.
        When you text CEREAL you'll be told to Reply w/ your 12 digit FL #, no spaces. (Don't forget # to far left & far right.) Then it asks you to Reply Y or N to whether you wanna get future offers. Finally, it reveals that you will get a free box of cereal on your actual card! So cool! Try again. Make sure you typed in the text numbers correctly.

        • Karen

          Thanks so much! I'll try it on my husband's phone.

      IMPORTANT QUESTION: *WHAT* is Simple Living Cereal? Corn flakes?

      • bluebird52

        It's Food Lion's brand of Life Cereal. It's available in original and cinnamon flavors, just like the brand name.De

    • J. A.

      My store had no idea what was going on, and after scanning my card the discount didn't show up. So I put the cereal back.

    • Erica

      Does anyone know if this deal is expired? I deleted the response text by accident.

    • Ron D
