Dollar General Ad 5/22: Best Sales & Deals

This post may include affiliate links.  Go here to see my full disclosure policy!

Here are the best deals I spotted in the Dollar General ad for May 22 - 28, 2016.

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 back in December 2014, so you might need to print yourself a new copy.



Best deals in the 5/22 Dollar General ad


  • Dollar General In-Ad Coupon -- Spend $25 or more, Save $5 off your purchase!  This coupon is good AFTER all Dollar General discounts (including digital coupons) but BEFORE manufacturer coupons, and can be used on May 22 & 23 only.  I'll have a suggested deal scenario available tomorrow for you!
  • Gatorade -- on sale for 85 cents per 32 oz bottle.  Use the 25 cents off DG digital coupon to pay 60 cents out of pocket.  Next, submit your receipt here for a coupon for another FREE 32 oz bottle of Gatorade.  So that's like two bottles for a final price of 60 cents, or just 30 cents apiece!  NOTE: If you're not familiar with how Dollar General digital coupons work, go here for my how-to guide!
