Here is the most recent version of Dollar General's Coupon Policy, effective from April 10, 2012.
Dollar General accepted manufacturer and Dollar General-issued coupons (including Internet coupons) that meet these requirements:
- Must be original (no photocopies).
- Must have a scannable barcode or valid promotion code.
- Must have a printed expiration date.
- Can be redeemed only for items sold at Dollar General and can be redeemed only for the exact item.
- Coupons for free items are only accepted if a purchase is required to get one free.
- Maximum of two coupons per item. One coupon must be a manufacturer's coupon and the second must be a Dollar General coupon, as long as neither coupon states that it is not valid with other coupons.
- Are from other retailers.
- Are expired.
- Are Internet coupons without a scannable barcode or valid promotion code.
- Contain the combination of an invalid barcode that won't scan and a promotion code that the register will not accept.
- Are for "free" items, unless a purchase is required (i.e., "Buy one get one free" is acceptable).
- Do not have a "remit to" address on the coupon.
