Food Lion P&G promotion scenarios


UPDATE: P&G is now saying that the $50 must be met AFTER coupons and discounts.  They have never had that requirement before.  Sadly, I already mailed my rebate off.  


When you buy $15 worth of selected P&G products you will get $5 off instantly at checkout- here are a few ideas to get you started.  This deal with start on WED 5/2.


Buy (4) Pantene @ $3.50 each= $14

Buy (1) Secret $2.50= $2.50+ 14= $16.50

use (1) $1/1 Secret PG 4/29 = $16.50- $1= $15.50

use (2) B1G1 pantene PG 4/29 = $15.50- $7 = $8.50

-$5 instant savings

Total due: $3.50 for 5 items or 70 cents each

*** Do the above transaction 2 times and do this transaction once:

Buy (4) Pantene @ $3.50 each= $14

Buy (2) Secret $2.50= $5.00+ 14= $19.00

use (2) $1/1 Secret PG 4/29 = $19.00- $2= $17.00

use (2) B1G1 pantene PG 4/29 = $17.00- $7 = $10.00

-$5 instant savings

Total due: $5 for 5 items




Buy 4 Clairol Nice N Easy @ $5.99 each= $23.96

Use (2) $5/2= $23.96- $10= $13.96

-$5 instant savings = $8.96 for 4 boxes or $2.24 each



Olay Defying cleanser$4.69

buy (4) @ 4.69= $18.76

Use (2) $3/2 PG 4.29= $12.76

-$5 instant savings = $7.76 for 4 = $1.94 each

(Also eligible for $10 MIR)



Tampax Pearl $3.99

Buy (4) = $15.76

use (4) $1/1= $11.76

-$5 instant savings= $6.76 for 4 or $1.69 each



Buy (2) tampax pearl 3.99= 7.98 use (2) $1/1= $5.98

Buy (2) Pantene $3.50 each = $7 Use b1G1 = $3.50

Buy (1) Secret $2.50 use $1/1= $1.50

    So, I would need three papers to get idea one? I bought 2 this week. Can I do just the first part of idea one?

  2. Jennifer Willis says

    Oops. Get it now. Really wish I had picked up extra papers yesterday. Would like to get the $10 MIR. I am so new to this!

  3. ivy says

    I only had 3 PG inserts so I figured out that if I buy 2 Tampax Pearl, 4 Olay cleasers, 6 Pantene and 1 Secret in 3 seperate transactions, my total for the rebate is $50.24 and OOP is only $15.74 (excluding taxes). With $10 MIR, it should be $5.74 for 13 items!

      I did- I went to 2 different FL and did 3 transactions. Worked out perfect EXCEPT that the deodorant was NOT ringingup on sale so they had to manually over ride- Total OOP including tax 15.50 submitting for the $10 MIR

        • Lynn says

          Everything went as expected except my deodorant rang up $2.99 ??? I didn’t realize it until I had left Food Lion. I will go back tomorrow to customer service. Thanks for providing us with the scenario.

            • Linda says

              Mine rang up at $2.99 also but they gave me $4.39 credit for the shampoo so I still came out ahead. $3.46 for 4 shampoo and 2 deodorant, I’ll take that any day.

    Thanks for the tip and the head’s up about the deodorant. My FL also didn’t have the deodorant on sale, but I talked to the manager, and he scanned it with a hand scanner and said he’d submit to corporate and fix it. They weren’t tagged on the shelf either.

    But after the fact I realized they had undercharged me for the shampoo. They credited more for the B1G1 than they should have. I ended up paying $2.29 for 4 shampoos and 2 deodorant. I’m going to go back tomorrow and let them know though, in case they want me to pay it back.

    I went to FL in Walkertown. Was told it was only one scent that was on sale so they would not override price.

    On the phone with rebate line now: they are saying this has to be $50 AFTER coupons. What is the deal?

      • Guest says

        Yes, I hit a brick wall with the ‘in writing’ request. They said all the terms and conditions are on the rebate form and it is ‘in writing’ on the flyer. I let them know that $50 is near impossible when using coupons and receiving other P&G promotions. Super sad about this. I got mine for a great price but would have like the rebate- as promised. Not a good look for P&G.

          • Ivy says

            Just looked at the rebate form and the part that needs to cut, filled and sent, does state “buy worth”. So, if the products are worth $50, why would P&G ignore it? If the rebate only qualifies for $50 after all the coupons then they should simply put that line on the rebate form. Life would be so much easier :(

          • Guest says

            I completely agree. At least HT spelled out their terms and conditions when it came to the $10/$50. I think one could make a case that the terms and conditions are vague enough to warrant redress!! lol

    • Guest says

      Got nowhere with them. Flyer says you have to SPEND $50 not BUY $50. They are not going to honor this. What are your thoughts on this?
