I wanted to make a quick post about how to coupon at Bi-lo. I have seen a few people question how couponing works at this particular store. I am just going to quickly clarify a few things. Bi-lo is one of the oldest stores that I have shopped at. In fact for quite some time the only stores we had where I grew up were Bi-lo, Piggly Wiggly, Food Lion and Winn-Dixie. I consider the other stores just basic grocery stores. They never have anything special going on to be honest. I am going to specify a few couponing rules for Bi-lo and that’s it. Look out below!
What kind of coupons can I use?
Store Coupons- These can be from local competitors such as other grocery stores, Target, Walgreens, CVS, Dollar General and Family Dollar. You should ask your local customer service what stores they consider “competitors”.
Manufacturer Coupons- These can be from sites like Coupons.com, Redplum, Smart Source and the paper coupon inserts you find in your local newspaper. They can also be found in stores. These will clearly state “Manufacturer Coupon”. To see the coupon policy word for word, click here.
E-Coupons- These are coupons that you can save to your Bi-lo card. You may also use Savingstar e-coupons.
Does Bi-lo Double Coupons?
Yes! Bi-lo will double your coupons up to $0.60. This means if you have a coupon with a face value of up to $0.60, you will be able to double it. So a $0.60 off coupon will become $1.20 off. $0.55 off coupons are more common than $0.60 off coupons. However, you can only use 5 coupons that are alike. So if you plan to buy 6 of a product and use 6 double coupons, sorry, you won’t be allowed. Only 5 will double for like products. Store coupons/Competitor coupons will not double either.
Is there a limit to how many coupons I can use?
Currently there is not a limit. I believe this is 100% up to your local store. I have personally used more than 50 in a transaction and it was allowed.
Does Bi-lo allow me to Stack Coupons?
Yes. Bi-lo will allow you too stack coupons. You are allowed to use 1 store coupon and 1 manufacturer coupon together on a single item. This is called stacking. If you choose to use an e-coupon, then you can stack that with a store coupon but you cannot use a paper manufacturer coupon too, because the e-coupon is considered a manufacturer coupon. Another way to save more is by using rebate apps such as Ibotta or Checkout51. These will give you money back when you take a picture of your receipt. So technically you can stack 3 times. Store Coupon, Manufacturer Coupon and Ibotta/Checkout51 deposit.
Well I said it was going to be short. These are the biggest questions most people have about couponing at Bi-lo. If you have any questions, please comment below!
