If you plan to become a regular couponer here, I strongly recommend building a personal relationship with your store's general manager so the cashiers don't freak out at the sight of your coupon binder.
Bringing a copy of the Dollar General coupon policy is always a smart idea too! The policy updated in December 2014, so you might need to print yourself a new copy.
Best deals in the 7/5 Dollar General ad
- Dollar General digital coupons -- NEW sign-ups for the DG digital coupon program will receive a coupon for $2 off any purchase of $2.01 or more, to be used July 5 - 11, 2015. There doesn't appear to be any way to load this to existing accounts, so if you have a smartphone in your household that's not signed up for digital coupons, now's the time to fix that! If you're unfamiliar with the Dollar General digital coupon program, I have a how-to guide that explains how it all works. You can go here to sign up for the program as well.
