      Does Dollar General accept manufacturer coupons?

      • Mbpett

        Yes they do, however, my Publix took it! Woohoo!! :)

          I had major problems using the manuf bogo q with their bogo sale going on…wouldn't take it….not worth all the hassle!

      • KAWilson

        Yes, the do – and they will now take internet coupons and you can stack manu qs with store qs….check their web site for complete coupon policy – this is something new for them and I have problems with the cashiers and managers at my local store.

        Their coupon policy is at www(dot)dollargeneral(dot)com under “About our Store” and then under “Customer Q & A”. It's the last question in the list.

      They are supposed to take them, but good luck. I went to 4 stores today and tried to use a BOGO coupon and got 8 different excuses as to why they couldn't take it. It wasn't even an IP.

      • MaryT

        Interesting. I'd go with a printout of their coupon policy in hand [see note below for link info], because it specifically states “Dollar General will NOT accept the following: #4. FREE item coupon if printed from the Internet unless a purchase is required (example: a “buy one, get one free” is acceptable).” Clear as a bell that they don't take totally free item coupons, but they do accept BOGO coupons. Don't see how a clerk or manager, for that matter, can argue when it's that clear in black and white!

      We have a Dollar General Market near our home and they are great taking coupons. I am thrilled to know about the newsletter.

      I would love a free backpack. I do get your emails daily and make sure I never miss reading it all. I have 5 kids ages 4-10, so groceries are a huge expense for me. I have been following your blog for about a year now, and am saving almost 50% on my groceries. Thank-you so much! It has freed up a lot of money for us to use for the kids activities and vacations that we were not able to do before!
