Have you seen any other great deals?

    • Angela D.

      not sure if it is a great coupon you can combine with other coupons..granted it is $5.00 off…but if you read the fine print on the bottom of the coupon it says it is -not valid with any other coupons or offers. (Boo that stnks!)

      • I used one the last time they came out and the only requirement was that it be used last after all other discounts.

        Really to not allow manufacturer coupons wouldn't make any sense, they get all that money back.

        • Kimberly2

          Did they let you use it even though your total was less than $25 after coupons?

          • No, my total had to be $25 before the coupon. Had to grab a few other things…

            • Kimberly2

              Thanks

        • Brooke

          I tried to explain that they would be reimbursed for my free Gain dish soap coupon and they told me they couldn't take it. So frustrating!

      • CouponMomma

        On my coupon it reads: Offer not valid with any other Dollar General offer. I don't think that means manufacturer's coupons…does anyone else agree with me?

      • I have a coupon that says that. I got it from my register receipt yesterday. I have emailed corporate for clarification. Hopefully, I will get an answer before the coupon expires. The one I just printed say “any other DG offers”. Hopefully, they will also address the “before or after other coupons” issue.

        • Sean

          Not likely. They ignored my email the last time I asked the same question. If you, by some miracle, do get a response, I would sure appreciate a copy. My email is ziggy34434 at yahoo dot com.

    • Elizabeth

      Great coupon in the 9/29 Charlotte Observer, $10 off a $50 order.

    • Elizabeth

      clarification $10 off a $50 order from Harris Teeter

    • Galveston 2000

      have had lots of problems with dollar general and coupons -it seems the checker can take it or not-

    • $avin'some$

      i've used one for 5 off 25 before mq's. must depend on the cashier.

    • My DG also has the Varsity Snuggie for $15. There is still a $5 coupon on coupons(dot)com.

    • Brooke

      my dollar general will not let u use the kraft 5/$5 off or the gain that makes it free & they have a copy of those coupons next to register not to take.

      • That makes no sense. Just a little while back they had a coupon in their own booklet for $2 off any 3 Kraft products.

      • Brooke

        My DG took my coupons for $1.00 Gain Dish Detergent but not the one I had that stated “Free Gain Dish Detergent. 11oz”. They should have taken the $1.00 off q's. Go back tomorrow and speak with someone else.

    • counselor

      Dollar General will take $5 off $25 and your coupons but the total after coupons has to be $25. I have tried it and watched the register take the $5 off if a coupon takes your total below $25.

    • TabithaIlges

      was there really a 10 off 50 dollar coupon in charlotte observer for Harris Teeter. Must have overlooked that one.

    • Peggyrenolds4

      my dollar general stores (and we have several) will not take printable coupons at all

      • Marieperalez

        Mine will not either. I had my printed coupons and the manager came and told me they could not take them anymore because corporate sent them a notice. He showed me the paper from corporate and it was true, yet on their website they state they will take home printed coupons. I also had this problem at CVS recently.

        • Was this recently? They changed their policy in April to accept them.

    • Amy

      My DG has tons of summer stuff marked down…and their Clover Valley Diet Colas are not that bad…otherwise they tend to be much higher than most stores

    • Brooke

      I tried to use a coupon that was sent to me from the manufacturer for free Gain Dish Detergent, 11oz. and the lady told me that corporate wrote them a letter and told them not to accept coupons for free items. Does anyone know about this?

      • Sean

        Your cashier was mistaken. That is only on printables for free items.

    • Rdhewy

      Our DG has a list of internet coupons they wont take because there is counterfeit ones being passed out. I can only remember one coupons it was coke products.

    • Wendy

      My local store had an additional 50% off a lot of their clearance items. Summer things & clothes I think. I got two orange & white striped baskets for $1.00 each. They were out back when the summer stuff was out, but they will be great for Halloween!

    • Ucmba97

      I had an issue with them not taking certain credit cards. Like I wanted to use a mastercard, but they only took Visa (or vice versa). And I used the $5 off $25, but I had to have $25 after all other coupons were deducted. They do have very reasonable pric eon paper muffin cups, so if you bake alot of muffin or cupcakes, look for those and stock up.

    • Scoutmom316

      Will this q work on clearance?

    • Donna

      If your Dollar General will scan the $5 off $25 before manufacture Q's (mine did:):):)… you can get a good deal on Swiffer Wet Jet starter kit and refill today. Swiffer Starter – $21, Refill – $4.75 – use D/G $5/$25, P&G $5 off Swiffer Starter (EX. 9-30) and P&G Free Refill with purchase of Starter (EX 10-31) for a total of $11 before tax. You could also use the P&G Q's at Walgreen and have a good deal as their swiffer products are 25% off and you get back $2 RR when you spend over $10.

    • Mcleodsc

      I had over $45 items rung up. The cashier looks at my mfg. coupons and tells me I can use either the mfg coupons OR the 5/25 DG cpn. I pointed out to her that if she scanned the mfg cpns the order would still be over $40 before using the 5/25 DG cpn. She said one OR the other so I said neither, I took my coupons back and left. I have emailed customer service for more clarification on the use of 5/25 cpn. If I get a response before the cpn expires tomorrow, I may try again to use it. Otherwise I will be taking my cash and coupons elsewhere.

    • Terironk

      Went to DG today and after finding some real good bargains like Nivea body wash for $2.25 with your $2.00 off would make it 25 cents. Spent a long time making sure I had $25.00 total and then the cashier would not take my $5.00 off because it had to equal $25.00 after the manufactures coupons. I asked to speak to the manager and she said that was there company policy. Told the cashier to please void everything. Wasn't happy about that policy.

      • Courtneyslp

        My dollar general printed out my 5 off 25 on a register receipt. It specfically says “not good with any other offers or coupons”. I won't be going.

    • Mvtdeals

      I went tonight- needed new kitty litter box-not fun… Anyway got my items I added up to $25.00…cashier denied my coupon because without tax it was 24.7-something. Grabbed some gum and used my coupon -got home and the kitty box has a crack! Gotta go back to exchange tomorrow…bummer!! Really not worth the trouble- have to use my debt card -won't take my MC and had problems w/ coupon-didn't bother trying any manufacturer coupons there. Think I'll stick to H&T, CVS and Rite AId much better shopping.
