Dollar General Ad 8/28: 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 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!
  • 1 Subject Spiral Notebooks -- choose from College or Wide ruled for 50 cents each.
  • Crayola® Crayons -- 24-count boxes on sale for 50 cents each.

  • Tyson® All Natural Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts -- 2 lb bags priced at $5.95 each.  Use the $1 off coupon from the 7/24 Red Plum insert (this was a regional coupon, so not everyone will have received it) and get yours for $4.95 instead.
