Omnichannel retailer committed to delivering savings and convenience for customers

SALISBURY, N.C., Oct. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As holiday shopping begins, Food Lion unveils its “Be the Season’s MVP” program, designed to offer ease and affordability for customers to enjoy gatherings with their family and friends during the festive season.

“Customers can be this season’s MVP by taking advantage of affordability and convenience as well as cooking tips, recipes and catering options at Food Lion,” said Jennifer Blanchard, Director of Community Relations, Food Lion. “We will continue to offer everyday low prices on our private brand products as well as an assortment of national brands and seasonal promotions, providing great value and exceptional quality.”

Earn $20 in Savings by Shopping Six Times
To help customers save money on items they buy every day, Food Lion is offering an additional $20 in savings just in time for holiday gatherings. The promotion runs from Oct. 11 to Nov. 21.

In addition to the savings, the omnichannel retailer makes earning and redeeming the $20 coupon simple for customers:

  • Shop six times between Oct. 11 and Nov. 21 with a personal MVP card
  • Spend at least $50 on each shopping trip
  • Receive a $20 Food Lion coupon at the bottom of the receipt after the sixth qualifying trip*
  • Redeem the $20 coupon during the next shopping trip using a personal MVP card. Coupons are valid for two weeks from the date of issue.

Promotional progress is tracked at the bottom of each receipt. For purchases to qualify for the promotion, customers must use their personal MVP savings card. The Food Lion MVP savings card allows customers to take advantage of lower prices available throughout the store or online when shopping through Food Lion To Go. Customers without an MVP card can enroll for free in stores or online. Additionally, customers can access increased savings by visiting the MVP Coupon Hub or scanning their MVP card in-store at the MVP Savings Center located near the entrance of any Food Lion store.
