Food Lion $25 gift card promo

Just an FYI - I tried buying a Home Depot gift card and it did not generate the $5 Food Lion coupon. The store staff was unclear as to which gift cards are participating. They offered to call me once they hear back from the powers that be.

Hoping things work out for

Hoping things work out for you, though Home Depot was not one of the cards listed in the circular.

Was there signage in the store including HD? If so, the manager should have handled it on the spot.

None of the staff was aware

None of the staff was aware of the sale at all. All they had to go on was the illustration in the flyer. IIRC it was phrased as "participating" companies but did not actually list them.

I was optimistically hoping Home Depot would be "participating".
