Mary contacted me today and let me know of a coupon policy change at Food Lion. I am not sure if this is a corporate policy change or just at our local Food Lion in Central Virginia. Food Lion will no longer accept any coupon for FREE products. This is not just internet printable free coupons, but any of them. Mary tried to use the coupons that Kraft Foods had sent in the sample pack and was informed of this new policy.
In my opinion, this is a poor move for Food Lion. I understand about internet printable coupons because there have been fraudulent printable coupons for free products. BUT, coupons straight from the manufacturer? That doesn’t make sense to me. Manufacturers reimburse stores for the coupon amount plus a handling fee. So I am not sure what the issue is.
Anyways, just wanted to give you all a heads up!
