If you plan to become a regular couponer at Dollar General, 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 11/8 Dollar General ad
- Carnation Evaporated Milk -- on sale for $1 per can. Buy two cans and use the 55 cents off 2 coupon from the 11/8 Red Plum insert (this coupon may be regional, since I didn't receive it in my paper.) You'll pay $1.45 out of pocket, and then you can submit for the 50 cents off 2 Checkout 51 rebate. Your final price drops to 95 cents for both cans, or just 48 cents each!
- Clover Valley Soup -- on sale for 65 cents each.
- 7UP 2-Liters -- on sale 3 for $3. Use this $1 off 3 coupon (sort by Beverages to find it fast) and pay $2 for all three bottles instead. That works out to just 67 cents per bottle!
- Nestle Hot Cocoa -- on sale for $1 per box, plus on a Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale. So buy three boxes for $2, or again just 67 cents apiece!
- Betty Crocker Cookie or Brownie Mix -- on sale for $1 each. Buy three for $3, then use this 75 cents off 3 coupon (sort by Food to find it fast.) That knocks your price down to 75 cents apiece.
