5 off 25 dollar general coupon

Dollar General has a great printable coupon for $5 off a $25 purchase. The coupon is valid Saturday, 6/11/11, only.

For most Dollar General stores you need to have $25 after all other coupons and before tax to be able to use this (just a heads up).

      The coupon policy is here at their site for those wondering:


    • AK

      Do you have a copy of DG's coupon policy? 
      Thanks for all your help!!

    • Mommy2Boys

      My Harris Teeter accepted this one the last time it came out :)

      • Summerhunter2004

        even the printable? tia

    • Tallytai03

      I don't get why the Nivea Happy Sensations Body Wash says Free + Profit when the $3 coupon is for the lotion, not the body wash. Can someone clarify?  This store is pretty far from my house and I'd like to save a long trip if this is an error. Thanks. : )

      • Ctcjsbag5

        She is letting you know you can get the Lotion Free + profit.  The lotion and body wash are on sale for $3.00, It will be free plus .50 profit on the lotion.  You can still get the body wash for $1.50 with the $1.00 off coupon.

      I was just in Dollar General and received two coupons $5.00 off an $20.00.

    • Mel_Jolley

      Does this apply for DG market too?

    • Cbidthis

      So… Dollar General allows overage? It's not in their policy on their site and I don't shop there often enough to know…

    • Frenchy2004

      Just left the DG and the one near me doesnt carry the Happy Sensations :-( Not sure if this deal is Regional or not

    • Candice

      Just went to two DG's and called another one. Not one of them carries the nivea happy sensations lotion. (Louisiana)

    • JTTLC

      I went to DG a week ago since I thought I might be able to score some great lotion for free, but they did not carry it either.  I live in South Carolina.  Jenny where did you find a DG that sold it?  That would have been a great deal!

    • Sandy Preston

      OK, so I went to DG and like alot of you they did not have the lotion advertised here. I tried to make the best of my trip and picked up thing anyway. I found out they DO NOT allow you to stack coupons. I had a BOGO Free coupon for Degree and and $0.75 off one. They would only let me use one coupon so I was kinda bummed about that. Got some ok deals but nothing that was GREAT!  Not sure if I will waste my time again. Just that the $5.00 off $25.00 to HT. LOL!

      • Amanda

        My dollar general has a new $1 section.  I got Degree for free and Colgate max white toothpaste after my $1 coupons.  I was excited because I missed all the toothpaste at CVS this week.  The sizes are a little smaller but bigger than travel sizes.  The bounty was a great deal.  12 rolls for $7.66 after the $1 coupon and the percent of the $5 off $25.  The Welchs was also just 1.07 after coupon and $5 off deal.  I was impressed with them today.  Yeah I didn't buy 40 mustards for free but they were all good prices and stuff I needed.  I work full time and have a child in daycare so trying to rush to CVS and Walgreens before every thing is gone is a pain.

        This morning I used an Old Spice buy the deoderant and get the bodywash free and they didnt blink an eye when I put a $1 off any Old Spice product with it and there were no problems with them scanning. I didn't see in their coupon policy that it wasn't allowed so I tried it and it worked out for a great deal for me. I wonder if what you encountered is one of those “whatever the manager says” kind of things. My store is in Central KY.

    • angela

      i just went to the helena, al DG and they dont carry the nivea lotion either. bummed.

    • Darla Andrews

      I went to the helena this morning and bought the last 4 bottles of the Nivea bidy wash and it paid me $2.00. I was doing great until I checked out. I had
      (2) 150 oz Purex   $8.00 less a $3 coupon each  =$5 x 2 with a total $10.00 for the two.
      (4) Nivea  at $2.50 each with $3.00 each=    -$.50 x 4 with a total of $2.00 credit
      (1) Always pads 18 ct at $3.25 with a coupon for a free product.  $0.00 for this and 2 massingales $1.65 each with a $1 coupon each = $.65 x 2  for a total of $1.30, I also bought (2) to gos Purex 3 in 1 packs at a $1 each. I wanted to make sure I had my $25.00 before tax so I could use the $5 off $25 coupon. I gave the lady the $5 coupon first after she rang up all the items. She wanted my other coupons first. I asked if SHe was going to ring up my $5 coupon and she said yes she would automatically give it to me. Well, because I was in a hurry I was not thinking clearly. I did not get my $5 discount because she rang up my other coupons first and kept my $5 coupon. I still got a great deal, but I was cheated out of my $5.
      I did get a great deal in another DG yesterday when I bought 4 bottles of pinesol and 6 bottles of nivea. I paid $3. and change for the whole thing.
