Planning to go hit up Dollar General on Saturday, June 4 to use the $5 off $25 store coupon?
Here's a HOT deal scenario to consider if you have the right mix of coupons.
Check out how the math works out:
- Gillette® Sensor® 3 Disposable Razors -- 4-count pack priced at $6.
- Charmin® Basic® Bath Tissue -- 12-count pack priced at $4.95 each.
- Bounty® Basic Paper Towels -- 6-count pack also priced at $4.95 each.
- Hefty Trash Bags -- assorted varieties priced at $4.75 per box.
- Gain® Flings!™ -- priced at $4.50 per bag.
- Buy one of each item for a pre-coupon price of $25.15.
- Give your $5 off $25 Dollar General coupon FIRST to knock your price down to $20.15.
- Next, use the $2 off Gillette coupon from the 5/15 Red Plum insert, plus this $1 off Charmin Basic coupon, this $1 off Bounty Basic coupon, and this $1 off Hefty coupon.
- So that knocks your price down to $15.15 plus tax out of pocket.
- Next, submit for this $1 Ibotta rebate (good on Bounty) and this $1 Ibotta rebate (good on Hefty), along with these $1 Checkout 51 rebate (for Bounty), this $1 Checkout 51 rebate (for Charmin), this $2 Checkout 51 rebate (for Gillette) and this $2 Checkout 51 rebate (for Gain.)
- You'll also receive an additional $1 bonus in your Checkout 51 app for submitting both the Charmin and Bounty deals (just keep in mind that won't show up until next Friday.)
- So that's a final price of $6.15 for all five items after all discounts -- or just $1.23 apiece!
Now, Checkout 51 is currently offering an additional $5 bonus for new users who sign up through this link and then submit for their first rebate by July 20, 2016. AND Ibotta is also offering an additional $10 bonus to new users who sign up through this link and submit their first rebate by the end of June.
So if you're new to both apps (or if someone in your household with their own phone is new to both apps), you could score an additional $15 back on this deal.
That means all your goodies above will be FREE, plus you'd earn a whopping $8.85 in profit on your purchase!
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!
