Food Lion Trots Out the Turkey

Food Lion, LLC has rolled out its “MVP Free Turkey” program for Thanksgiving in select markets, enabling shoppers to earn $20 off their next shopping order electronically by using their MVP loyalty cards and spending $45 a visit weekly at Food Lion. Customers must shop six of eight weeks to be eligible for the electronic coupon.

“The program this year provides customers an easier and more convenient way to participate, with no more paper tickets or coupons to collect,” said Dave Godfredson, director of advertising and sponsorships at Salisbury, N.C.-based Food Lion. “Customers just need to use their personal MVP Card. Also, we are leveraging new technology this year for consumers, and their turkey credits will be tracked electronically so that the customer no longer needs to hold onto their receipts. We believe the new and improved process will be much more convenient and simple for our customers. This coupon can be used on any holiday food needs.”

A full list of official rules is available at the store or The promotion marks the chain’s eighth consecutive turkey giveaway program.
