3 Surprising Places to Use Coupons

I’ve been a coupon user for more than 15 years. I’ve used coupons at the grocery store, the convenience store, and pharmacies. I’ve taken advantage of Target’s store coupons matched with brand coupons.

I’ve used coupons for food, clothes, and restaurants. I’ve enjoyed every minute of the huge discounts and often landed free groceries just buy combining my coupons with an awesome sale.

And, now I’ll do the same thing with everyday low prices at 3 retailers I can’t believe accept coupons. Here are a few places you probably didn’t know you could use a coupon — because they’re already incredibly inexpensive!

  • Dollar General: This store features several name brand groceries at low prices. Their coupon policy is pretty basic and allows for one manufacturer’s coupon and one Dollar General coupon per item. They will also accept internet-printed coupons as long as there is a scanable barcode.
  • Deal$: Most items cost just $1 at Deal$, though it is not officially a “dollar store.” The coupon policy allows for one coupon per item and two internet-printed coupons per purchase.
  • Dollar Tree: This is a recent development — Dollar Tree will accept manufacturer’s coupons on name brand products. Their coupon policy states one coupon per item and two internet-printed coupons per purchase. With everything costing just $1, I can see a lot of huge deals in my future!

All three policies state that no cash will be given over the value of the item, so if the coupon is worth more than the sale price, you’ll simply get the item for free. None of the stores accept free item coupons, but I see a lot of value in $.50 and $1 coupons at these locations.

Are you using coupons at the dollar store?
