The buzz around the blogosphere and on Open Mic last week was that Dollar Tree is now accepting manufacturer’s coupons. This means that you may be able to find some great deals on name-brand products when you combine insert or printable coupons with their low prices.
Find a Dollar Tree location near you. I was surprised to discover that I have 11 (yes, 11!) Dollar Tree stores located within a 10-mile radius. Wow!
Their coupon acceptance guidelines are outlined on their Terms & Conditions page, but there are a few restrictions I wanted to point out:
1. Only original and intact manufacturers’ coupons will be accepted. Retailer-specific coupons will not be accepted.
My thoughts: This may mean that they won’t accept manufacturer’s coupons that state “redeemable only at _____” or a coupon with a store’s logo on it.
3. Only two (2) print-at-home Internet coupons may be redeemed per transaction.
My thoughts: Two printable coupons per transaction – that’s it. It doesn’t matter if you have different printable coupons for different products.
6. Coupons will not be accepted without the purchase of the item specified and are subject to the terms listed (e.g. expiration date, size, limitations, quantity, etc.).
My thoughts: This is pretty standard language in a coupon policy, but I just wanted to point out that expired coupons will not be accepted and it’s a good idea to check the size restriction on the coupon before purchasing an item. Many items at Dollar Tree are smaller than items you’ll see elsewhere. Be careful with this.
Before you head out to the dollar store, check out my post on What Not to Buy at the Dollar Store. Be sure to read the comments on the post, too, as many readers offered great suggestions for what products to buy and what products to avoid at the dollar store.
