Saving Money At Dollar General

We live in small town USA and our only local store is Dollar General.  I am so thankful to have this store in our town and we shop there several times each week.  My favorite day to shop at Dollar General is on Saturdays and I want to share a great way to save money when you shop there.

Dollar General has digital coupons that  you can get off of their website and load them to your account. Then when you pay at the cash register you enter your phone number that is connected to your account on the credit card machine BEFORE the cashier hits total. It is really easy to use.  If you combine these coupons with shopping on a Saturday and getting the $5 off of $25 coupon you can save approximately 50% off of your bill easily.

My big money savers today were:
$2 off always discreet pads: reg $4 and the 5/25 took off another .50 = $1.50
$1 off herbal essence bod wash reg $2.25 and the 5/25 took off .28 = .97
$3 off Loreal total repair shampoo reg $4 and the 5/25 took off .50 = .50
$1 off Simply Olay body wash reg $2.25 and the 5/25 took off .25 = $1
$2 off Speed Stick gear deodorant reg $2.95 and the 5/25 took off .45 = .50

They have food, household, personal care, paper product and more types of coupons.  It's free to set up your account. No coupons to print or clip and it's easy to use.  Just write down the coupons that you add to your account, take your calculator to the store and make sure you meet your $25 before tax in items.  At the register, enter your phone number in the keypad and watch the savings add up. 

I like to make multiple orders and that's why I make sure to meet my $25 and not go over by much.  I also use 2 accounts to add coupons too.  Just make your list.  Even if you don't want to use the digital coupons, you can still use the $5/$25 and save 20% of your bill.
