I am in love with Dollar Tree anyway, and now that they are taking coupons I couldn’t be more exited. Seriously-doesn’t that feel like Christmas!!!! Dollar Tree decided that since they are already carrying SO MANY name brand products, taking coupons passes an even better value along to the us, the customers! I am so excited because this means there will be some FREE products at Dollar Tree! If you work at Dollar Tree, don’t worry The manufacturer reimburses you for the coupons, so treat them like cash and make sure you mail them in!
I ran in to get the scoop for myself, and yes. It’s true. Straight from corporate here are a few things I have learned:
Signs are to be held in the office until this Sunday, when they officially start taking manufacturer coupons.
Cashiers will start asking, “Do you have any manufacturer coupons today?” And will have to process EACH coupon individually (as with every other store)… so it will take some time. Be patient-this is new for everyone!
The policy will be available on DollarTree.com, but as of right now, I did not see it there.
And the OFFICIAL Coupon Acceptance Policy is THIS:
- Manufacturer coupons ONLY, no retailer specific coupons; example Target, Wal-Mart, etc.
- No photo copy of coupons.
- Limit 2 Internet coupons per transaction.
- Do not accept coupons for “FREE” product or coupons where the amount for the product is blank.
- Coupons must be presented at time of purchase and can not be redeemed for cash at a later time.
- We will accept coupons subject to their terms only; such as expiration date, size and limitations.
- Coupon will not be accepted without the purchase of the item specified on the coupon.
- Coupons cannot be redeemed for more than the purchase of the item specified on the coupon.
- Only 1 Manufacturer coupon will be accepted per product in transaction.
- Coupon must be intact, not altered or modified in any way.
- Coupons are for in store purchases only.
I’d like to explain each line so there isn’t any confusion!
Manufacturer coupons ONLY, no retailer specific coupons; example Target, Wal-Mart, etc.
**This means that if it is a STORE coupon, like Dollar General has often, you can NOT use it at Dollar Tree.
No photo copy of coupons.
**You may not copy coupons, but y’all should already know this
Limit 2 Internet coupons per transaction.
**Per transaction means your purchase at the register, that is your transaction. You could be buying 10 items or 1, but it is your entire transaction. You won’t be able to use more than 2 printables per transaction. Buy your products, then go to the back of then line and do another transaction if you have more than 2 printables you want to use.
Do not accept coupons for “FREE” product or coupons where the amount for the product is blank.
**With our Coke Rewards points we get free Coke all the time, but we will NOT be able to show up with a coupon for a free 20oz and redeem it at Dollar Tree.
Coupons must be presented at time of purchase and can not be redeemed for cash at a later time.
**If you leave the store and realize you had a coupon in your pocket you meant to use, you can not go back in and ask for the money you would have saved. HOWEVER, according to their instructions they can call a Store Manager/Assistant Manager over for assistance and do a Post Void so they can ring up the sale again with the coupon. They can NOT void debit and EBT transactions. For a debit they will have to do a refund and y’all will have to buy the product again. For EBT purchases there are no refunds, so you will have to use the coupon on your next visit.
We will accept coupons subject to their terms only; such as expiration date, size and limitations.
**That means if the product says “Valid on on the 45 oz size” and Dollar Tree only carries the 32 oz size, they will not take your coupon.
Coupon will not be accepted without the purchase of the item specified on the coupon.
** For example, you can not use a “$.55 off Lysol” if you do not have a Lysol product in your cart.
Coupons cannot be redeemed for more than the purchase of the item specified on the coupon.
**If you have a coupon for “$1.10 off Rubbermaid” and they have them for $1, they will not give you the $.10 from the coupon back, or apply it in overage. My manager said that the item “would just be free.” I have heard from another manager that you are not allowed to use coupons over a $1 in value. After hearing both these stories, I am going to go with the “item will be free” if such an issue happens. The policy says “It cannot be redeemed for MORE THAN the purchase of the item…” meaning, no overage, but the item is free. Nowhere does it state they will not accept coupons over $1 in value. When in doubt, carry the policy with you.
Only 1 Manufacturer coupon will be accepted per product in transaction.
**If you buy 5 Sunday papers and have 5 coupons that say “$.55 off 1 Lysol” you would have to buy 5 Lysol products to use all 5 coupons. It does not mean you can only use 1 coupon per transaction, it just means you can not use 2 of the “$.55/1 Lysol” on 1 Lysol, making the item free. The coupon says “$.55 off 1″ so that means it is only 1 coupon per product. Sometimes you will see a coupon that says, “$1 off 2″ and in that case, the customer will have to buy 2 products to get the $1 off.
Coupon must be intact, not altered or modified in any way.
**If your baby eats half of the coupon while you are shopping and it is no longer legible, you are probably in trouble. It has happened to me before and my coupon was not acceptable. It happens!
Coupons are for in store purchases only.
