$5 off $30 Scenarios at Dollar General

I know, I know. It’s not $5 off $25. They do this sometimes. I always have to remind myself the last time I was in a big warehouse store or grocery store neither one offered any money off so I should be grateful for this, right? OK!

Are y’all familiar with shopping at Dollar General? Their computer systems do a goofy thing where they take off a $ amount for each item you buy when you use a $5 off coupon. Then it makes your coupons ring up funny. When I go in I always try to make it simple. I add up the total of my coupons, and I show it to the cashier and say, “This is how much I should get off at the end.” After everything is rang up then I hand over the $5 off coupon, and then I hand over the other coupons… everything should work so long as nothing is expired. If you have problems, don’t hesitate to get a manager to help you. If the manager is really struggling, make sure you have the coupon policy with you! If all else fails, call corporate.

I have a $10 gift card to Cold Water Creek for the first one to send in a picture of the goodies they get using 8/18′s $5 off a $30 purchase! You can post them to my Facebook page and I will feature the winner on Monday morning!
