Dollar General Ad 7/31: 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 running 7/31 - 8/616.

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.


  • Paper Mate® Mechanical Pencils -- 4-count packs on sale for 50 cents each.  Use the 55 cents off coupon from the 7/31 Smartsource insert and get yours for FREE!  Note: Dollar General DOES give overage towards the rest of your transaction, but I would imagine many cashiers don't know about that part of the policy.  Be prepared to show them the DG coupon policy on your phone!
