How to Coupon at Dollar Tree
Can you get discounts where everything is already priced at a dollar? Yes, you can. At Dollar Tree, you could even walk away with items for free if you know how to coupon at this discount store. Couponing at Dollar Tree is pretty straightforward. They have an easily understandable coupon policy. The great thing is that you can stack different manufacturer coupons for bigger savings.
While couponing at Dollar Tree, remember that most items that will go for a dollar are small items. Look at your coupon’s fine print before trying to redeem.
Join Dollar Tree’s Value Seekers club
You can join Dollar Tree’s loyalty program called Value Seekers Club. Members get early alerts on special savings. You can customize the kind of alerts you want to receive. If you want toys, you will get alerts from this department only. You can save more by looking up coupons for the alerts you receive.
Couponing with Manufacturer Coupons
You can use manufacturer coupons with value on them e.g. $1 or $2. You can only use one manufacturer coupon per item. Dollar Tree will not give overage if the coupon exceeds the price but will instead adjust the coupon downwards. If you have a coupon valued $1.50 for a $1 item, the coupon’s value comes down to $1.00. In this case, you will walk away with the item for free but you will not have the $0.50 back.
But you can use an over-value coupon when buying multiple items. If you are holding a $2 coupon, for example, and need to buy three items ($3), this coupon can be used as it is ($2) because the total value of the items exceeds the coupon’s value.
Dollar Tree accepts both printable and newspaper coupons. Carry with you as many newspaper coupons as you can find. But you are limited to 4 like coupons per day. You can use as many newspaper coupons as you want on different orders.
Dollar Tree will also accept printable manufacturer coupons that are clearly indicated “Manufacturer Coupon”, carry an expiry date, and shows the manufacturer’s address. You are limited to two printable coupons per day.
Dollar Tree will accept your coupons for free items as long as there is an order to go with the free item. If you are holding a ‘Buy 1 Get 1 Free’, they will accept to give you the free item alongside the ordered one but they will not accept a $1.50 coupon on top of a free coupon, which would allow you to walk away with 2 free items.
