Dollar General $5 off a $25 Purchase Scenarios 7-14

This Saturday there is another $5 off a $25 purchase coupon available! I like to save my coupons up for the week and then use them when there is an extra $5 off. Remember, you will want to present the $5 off coupon FIRST. Then use your manafacturer coupons. Also, their system does a funny thing where it takes a percentage off each item bought instead of just a final $5 at the end. That means your coupons sometimes have a hard time scanning because the won’t allow FREE items. Meaning this: If you buy a $1 package of Oreos and have a $1 off coupon, the Oreos will be FREE. HOwever, after the $5 off a $25 purchase coupon, the computer will think the Oreos are something like $.83, so when the cashier goes to scan the $1 off Oreo Coupon, it will beep at them. The cashier will have to adjust the value of the coupon down to $.83. Now, hopefully you can help your cashier keep track of the $.17 they still owe you and they can take it off on the end.  You are not going to get overage at Dollar General, but you should still get the full value of the coupon.  Now, if the item is $.75 and you have a $1 off coupon, you won’t get overage on that item, you will just get it free… but that is different than when their $5 off coupon makes your item cheaper than the coupon value. Now that I have have thoroughly confused you, one more tip :)

What I like to do is add up the value of all my coupons together, show the cashier BEFORE we start scanning them and say, “I should get a total of $____ off!” That helps everyone to understand what is going on. I would love to hear how your trip goes!!!  That being said… here is first scenario!
