I Got My Free Groceries from Food Lion!!

I couldn't resist checking out Food Lion's free grocery promo this morning. And since I pass a Food Lion on my way to work (sorta) I stopped in to my usual store. The manager greeted me on the way in with a bag & a smile. He was standing next to our new coupon kiosk (yay!) and was showing everyone how to use it and even doing quick match ups on the spot -- "That coupon makes Charmin only $3.99!". I made a small purchase and was out in a jiffy.

My friend had a totally different experience at another store. No one greeted her. No one made any reference to the coupon kiosk. There was only one line open that had at least 5 customers in it & apparently this store was requiring you to make a purchase before giving out the free bag. There was no mention of "purchase necessary" in the ad so I find that very odd. And not a good sign for that particular store on a day where Food Lion is spending a lot of money to show us how great they are.

We did get the same items in our bags:

FL Peanut Butter Crackers 8pk
Home 360 Foil Wrap 25 sq ft
Home 360 Storage Bags 20ct
My Essentials Thin Spaghetti 16oz
My Essentials Forks 24ct
My Essentials Cola 2L

Thanks for posting this yesterday. I was able to get mine this morning with no problems. They greeted me at the door with a smile and a bag of groceries and offered free coffee and donuts. I bought some closeout gum and was on my way to work.
