Dollar General Deals: Xtra Laundry Detergent 66 Cents Each (Normally $3.95!)

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!
