Food Lion unveils MVP “Shop & Earn” personalized monthly rewards

SALISBURY — Starting Thursday, Food Lion began a new way for its customers to significantly increase their savings through personalized offers on products and categories they already buy.

Through Shop & Earn — an enhancement to the company’s current MVP Customer Rewards Program — shoppers can easily save more every month, in addition to their MVP savings and coupons.

To celebrate the program’s launch, Food Lion Feeds is partnering with Feeding America to donate one meal to local food banks for each Shop & Earn activation, up to 1 million meals.

Now available to customers across its 10-state footprint, shoppers can enroll online at www.foodlion.com or via the Food Lion Mobile App.

“Shop & Earn is a unique loyalty program that puts our customers in charge of their savings,” said Deborah Sabo, senior vice president of marketing at Food Lion. “The more our customers shop, the more they will save. Offers are targeted to customers based on their specific purchases, fueling a program with nearly endless savings opportunities.”

To enroll, customers should do the following:

  1. Activate: To activate personalized monthly offers to their MVP Card, customers should visit www.foodlion.com and access the Shop & Earn tab on the Savings Hub or via the Food Lion Mobile App.
  2. Shop & Earn: Shop their offers with their MVP Card until they reach their goal. Progress can be tracked at www.foodlion.com/shop&earn or via the Food Lion Mobile App. Rewards are instantly loaded to their MVP Card.
  3. Redeem: Rewards are automatically redeemed on their next shopping trip.

Shop & Earn is being rolled out to customers across its operating area following successful and insightful pilots in the Raleigh and Greensboro markets last year.

In addition, new offers will be made available the first of each month. Customers can begin earning rewards once they visit the Shop & Earn landing page to activate and begin tracking and will have until the last day of the month to earn rewards. These rewards may be redeemed until the end of the following month.

Shoppers can easily track their earnings progress on each offer online or via the new Food Lion Mobile App. In addition to viewing their personalized offers and rewards earnings, customers can save even more by also loading digital coupons to their MVP Card.
