      My dollar general’s computer will NOT accept the $5/$25 coupon unless ALL other coupons leave the balance over $25. So the LEAST I could pay is $20.

      • kaoscasa

        I’m pretty sure my DG is that way too so it’s really NOT that great of a deal.

      • staceyhamrick

        The coupon says “CASHIER INSTRUCTIONS: Scan or enter code for this coupon BEFORE manufacturer coupons.” I would point that out to the cashier and if they still don’t want to accept it simply ask nicely for the name and phone number of their regional director, even if you don’t call you have made them think twice about being rude.

        • Alecia Lance Rollins

          The cashier has to scan the $5 off coupon first. The end of July I went and my totals for 4 transactions added up to $2.54. I got 16 bottles of Herbal Essence Shampoo and Conditioner, 4 bottles of Bayer, 3 two packs of Reach toothbrushes, 1 KISS nail dress, 12 packs of always liners, 6 packs of Kotex liners, an Oil of Olay, 2 Venus Razors, and a bottle of ACT mouthwash. Now this did not include the p&g sale but you could add in an item that is around 5 dollars and the p&g deal will apply and take it off too!

    • Rachel

      anybody know how to get the clorox coupons?? Can’t get anywhere

    • grnacrz

      I watched the Poise Video and tried to download the coupon. It does nothing!! Please help!

    • kathy hodges

      Try getting the cashier to use the $5 off coupon first . The Axe coupon offer is gone.

    • renamac

      the P&G is a great deal and I did it but believe me The Dollar Generals around here don’t get couponing. They never know about any of their promotions. I had to ask about the $5 off $25 deal and surprise the cashier kept shouting I DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT. The manager wound up ringing me up she was super nice, And it wound up being a great deal. But you need to let them know what you plan on doing before they ring you up because the $5 did not come off automatically . I really feel that this is in part corporates fault for not having their registers generate the sales that are suppose to and managers should let their employees know about up coming sales. I mean the signs are all over the store and in the very sales flier that they stuffed into my bag. Tired of being shouted at when I try to shop the sales at Dollar General.

    • carmen

      I went to my Dollar general and got 5 wisk 1 all laundry and 1 viva napkins used (5) 2 off wisk coupon and .75 in the all and .25 on the viva and jut paid $7 and some change .. manager had to come over cuz cashier didn’t know what she was doing.. they have to ring all item then press total and it takes the 5 off and then use coupon

      • liza beth

        Can you please tell me where did you find the whisk coupons? I want to follow you awesome deal if I can find those.

    • beth

      How is anyone able to use additional Dollar General coupons after using a $5.00 off $30.00? Our store will not let more than one store coupon ring through. I walked away from my entire order because of this.
