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 Labor Day deals in the 9/6 Dollar General ad (good September 6 & 7 ONLY)
- Vicks® ZzzQuil™ Nighttime Sleep-Aid Liquid or LiquiCaps® -- on sale for $5 each. Use the $1 off coupon from the 8/30 P&G insert, then submit for the Try Me Free rebate also found in the 8/30 P&G insert. Your price is FREE after all discounts!
- Libby's Vegetables -- on sale for 50 cents per can. Buy four cans and use the $1 off 4 coupon from the 8/23 Red Plum insert. Your new price falls to 25 cents apiece.
- Ivory® Body Wash or Bar Soap -- on sale for $1 each. Use the 50 cents off coupon from the 8/30 P&G insert and pay 50 cents for yours.
- Wisk® Liquid Laundry Detergent -- 30-load bottles on sale for $2.95 apiece. Use the $1 off coupon from the 8/23 Red Plum insert and pay $1.95 out of pocket. Then if you have the Mobisave app (iPhone only, invite only) you can submit for that $1 off rebate as well. Your final price falls as low as 95 cents!
- Milk-Bone® Soft & Chewy Chicken or Beef Treats -- on sale for $2 per box, plus on BOGO sale. So buy two boxes for $2, or just a dollar each. No coupons needed!
- Jif® Peanut Butter -- on sale for $1.85 per jar. Buy two jars and use the 50 cents off 2 coupon from the 8/2 Red Plum insert. Your price drops to $1.60 per jar instead, which is a GREAT price for name-brand peanut butter!
- Xtra® Liquid Laundry Detergent -- 144 oz bottles on sale for $3.50. Use the $1 off coupon from the 8/9 Smartsource and pay $2.50 for yours. That works out to less than 3 cents per load of laundry, which is well under my personal stockpile price of five cents per load!
- All Hanes Tees & Underwear -- on BOGO 50% off sale! It looks like original prices start as low as $4.50 each, so you could get two items for as little as $6.75, or $3.38 each.
