Rakuten is currently offering 3% back / 3x Membership Rewards points in-store at Food Lion. That’s a great deal since it would stack nicely with cards that earn a bonus at US Supermarkets — and that’s particularly true for those who have triggered a recent referral promotion.

Quick Thoughts

This is a great deal if you live near a Food Lion since there are a number of cards that offer excellent category bonus points for U.S. Supermarket spend.

This could be particularly interesting for those who have an Amex Gold card since that card earns 4 points per dollar spent on eligible purchases at U.S. Supermarkets on up to $25K in spend per year (then 1x). Better yet, the current referral promotion on that card offers +5 points per dollar at U.S. Supermarkets on up to $25K in purchases over 3 months. I triggered that promotion and as such I have been earning 9 total points per dollar spent at U.S. Supermarkets. If I lived near a Food Lion, I’d be thrilled to stack another 3x on top for a total return of 12 Membership Rewards points per dollar spent.

Don’t forget to re-link the offer if you make multiple trips to the store. The terms indicate that the offer will work for 1 hour after your initial purchase and then you need to re-link it to use it again.

Keep in mind that terms state this will not work on gift card purchases, but if you’re shopping at Food Lion today you’ll definitely want to sync up this offer.

Thanks! Very helpful to know about for those in the southeast. Most Food Lions are very MS friendly.
