Planning to go hit up Dollar General on either May 22 or May 23 to use the $5 off $25 store coupon?
Here's a HOT deal scenario to consider if you have the right mix of coupons.
In fact, we can grab the big 96-load bottles of Xtra laundry detergent for just 66 cents -- that's less than a penny per load!
Here's how the math works out:
- Van Camp's Pork and Beans -- on sale 2 cans for $1, must buy in quantities of two to receive discount. So that's just 50 cents per can!
- Rubbermaid Beverage Bottles -- 14 oz bottles priced at $1 each.
- Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce -- 18 oz bottles priced at 2 for $2.
- Suave Men Hair Care -- priced at $2 per bottle.
- Xtra Liquid Laundry Detergent -- 144 oz bottles priced at $3.95 each.
- Buy four cans of Pork and Beans, four Rubbermaid bottles, two bottles of Sweet Baby Ray's, two bottles of Suave Men, and three bottles of Xtra laundry detergent, for a pre-coupon price of $25.85 for all 15 items.
- Give your $5 off $25 Dollar General coupon FIRST to knock your price down to $20.85.
- Next, use four $1 off Rubbermaid coupons from the 5/15 Smartsource inserts, two $1 off 2 Sweet Baby Ray coupons from the 5/22 Smartsource inserts, two $1 off Suave Men coupons from the 5/15 Red Plum inserts, and three $1 off Xtra coupons from the 5/8 Red Plum inserts.
- All those coupons take another $11 off your purchase.
- So you'll pay just $9.85 for all 15 items, or a mere 66 cents each!
FAIR WARNING: I think you need to be more mentally prepared for possible coupon issues at Dollar General than at any other national chain, especially when it comes to using the $5 off $25 weekly coupons.
In fact, I receive more emails and messages from readers about this weekly promotion than on any other topic -- and it is almost always because they are making mistakes #1 and #2 in these Six Common Mistakes That Cost Couponers Money.
So do your homework (in this case, that involves reading the fine print in the $5 off $25 DG coupon) and go ready to advocate for yourself at the register if necessary!
