Special thanks to Food Lion engaging me to participate in this sponsored post campaign. All opinions are my own.
If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times, our grocery bill kills my budget. As the Mom of three competitive athletes spanning elementary to high school, two of which are teenaged boys, I can not feed them fast enough. From having enough to make it through the week without running back to the store for forgotten items to having food that I can make ahead of time or that is portable to eat field side, I’m always thinking about how I can make the entire grocery shopping experience both affordable and efficient. When it comes to affordable, I am a firm believing in using coupons.
When I’m asked why I answer “Why not?” We need every bit of help our budget can get and frankly coupons can really add up. Yes it takes time but if its my job to make sure we are doing our best to keep expenses down and food is such a challenge in the budget, then its my job to make sure we are saving whenever and wherever we can.
Enter Food Lion’s new Coupon Hub.
Taking the MVP card once step further, the new Coupon Hub is all about loading those savings directly to your MVP card. You simply log on to the site, register your card, and BAM! We are talking savings Mom!
After you register and log in, you can choose from all kinds of coupons both to load directly to your card…
And some that you will need to print out as well…
What I love about being able to save coupons directly to my card is they live on my card until they expire so I can plan ahead for my shopping trips based on what is on sale in the store, what I have in my printed coupon supply, what I have in my coupon supplies from other sources and save as much as possible with each and every trip. While I know this might seem like a lot of work, in my world, saving $30 is worth my time any way you slice it.
Wondering if shopping at Food Lion and using the new Coupon Hub is worth it for you? Well today is the day you get to find out. First, Food Lion is hosting a sweepstakes that is ends March 4th. During this time period, Food Lion will select several winners each week for a $25 Food Lion gift card (to be loaded onto their MVP card) for visiting and experiencing the “Coupon Portal” by clicking a coupon to their MVP card. Also during this time period, a grand prize winner will be selected to receive $1,000 loaded onto their MVP card to use for their grocery purchases. Easy enough right?
