When you see dollar stores, like Dollar Tree, one can easily assume there’s no way to save there. However, its pretty simple to employ the same tactics you use in supermarkets to save money at Dollar Tree and other dollar stores!
Dollar Tree, and a few other dollar stores, fully accept both online and newspaper coupons. There are a few rules to using them, though. A shopper can use all the newspaper coupons they want, but they are limited to one of each of the online coupons, to a max of two. That means no printing multiple copies! Be aware that printables should state “Manufacturer Coupon,” the manufacturer address, and expiration date.
Don’t want to get busy with cutting out coupons? It’s still certainly worth signing up for your local dollar stores’ email newsletter. They often include not only coupons, but also insider info about upcoming deals. Similarly, follow them on social media as well!
Compare The Prices
More often than not, dollar stores like Dollar Tree will have the lowest prices. Not always, however! Occasionally, you can find the same item at Walmart, Big Lots, or other similar stores for less than a dollar. So, before committing to buying any products, it’s worth taking some time and shopping around to make sure it’s a good price. For instance, one blogger found that, at her local Dollar Tree, Ajax dish soap went for, you guessed it, one dollar. However, at Walmart, the same soap was just 97 cents. And all those pennies really add up over the years!
Pay Attention To Medicine
What’s the real bargain at dollar stores, you ask? The medicine! Since the FDA regulates drugs in America, you can feel confident that all the medication at Dollar Tree, which includes everything from aspirin, ibuprofen, and sleep aids to stomach medicine and pain relievers, are safe! The best part of all? They’re all a dollar! The same medication at Target or Walmart can cost anywhere from $2-$9 more. That’s quite the savings!
Preparing For Celebration
Back in grade school, handmade or printed-out birthday cards were cute. At 30-years-old, they just seem sad. But, there’s no need to spend $3-$5 on a birthday card, though! Instead, head over to your local dollar store, where they often carry cards for one dollar, or two for one. Dollar Tree even carries Heartline cards, a company owned and operated by Hallmark!
Get Cash Back
In case you didn’t know, there are apps that help customers earn cashback no matter where they shop, even dollar stores! The best cashback apps are Ibotta, Checkout 51, and Fetch Rewards. All of them are free and can help earn money in dollar stores like Dollar Tree. Just make sure to read all the fine print, as always.
These are just a few of the ways that you can save at dollar stores, like Dollar Tree. We’re sure the more you think, the more ways you’ll come up with!
