Here are the best deals I spotted in the Dollar General ad running 8/28 - 9/3/16.
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.
- Bic® Round Stic® Pens -- on sale for 50 cents per pack. Use the $1 off coupon from the 8/21 Smartsource and grab yours for FREE, plus 50 cents overage. (Yep, DG gives overage per their coupon policy -- although a lot of cashiers don't know that. It's why I recommend you print and bring that policy linked above!)
- iMagine® School Glue or Large Glue Stick -- on sale for 25 cents each.
- Libby's® Canned Vegetables -- on sale 2 cans for $1. Buy four for $2, then use the $1 off 4 coupon from the 8/21 Smartsource insert. Your new price drops to four for $1, or 25 cents apiece!
