Family Dollar Stores, the second largest discount retailer of its kind, has over 8,100 neighborhood stores throughout the U.S. Value-conscious shoppers enjoy competitive prices on merchandise ranging from food, beverages, household cleaners, laundry products, housewares, and pet supplies. To add to the everyday savings, Family Dollar has released its official coupon policy.

Compared to other stores in its category, the Family Dollar coupon policy is as competitive as its prices.

 One of biggest cost savers to shoppers is that they can stack coupons for extra savings. At Family Dollar, stacking coupons is accomplished by redeeming a manufacturer coupon and a store coupon on a single item.

Family Dollar accepts manufacturer coupons and Family Dollar issued coupons including:

Coupons printed from the internet must meet the following criteria:

  • Be the original coupon - no photocopies
  • Have a scan-able barcode or valid promotion code
  • Have an expiration date

Internet coupons can be printed in black and white or color and must be legible. It is required that the coupons have “Family Dollar” or “Manufacturer Coupon” printed on the coupon and a "remit to" address,

Using Family Dollar Coupons

Shoppers can get the Family Dollar coupons in some weekly newspaper ad inserts by going to the Family Dollar weekly ad online and then printing the coupons, or by texting 28767 and receiving the coupons directly to their mobile phones.

All mobile coupons are Family Dollar store coupons and can be stacked with manufacturer coupons.

Coupon Redemption Policy:

Family Dollar has a few redemption policies and restrictions.

Coupons must be for the exact product, including the exact weight and size.

Coupons for free items will only be accepted if a purchase is required to get one free.

 

For Example:

  • A coupon for a free nine-ounce bag of Gummy Bears would not be accepted because a purchase is not required.
  • "Buy One Get One Free" coupons are accepted if the product purchased is the same product that the shopper gets for free.

For Example:

  • A coupon reads: "Buy One 12-Pack of Cokes and Get One Can of Pringles for Free" would not be accepted because the items are not the same.
  • A coupon reads: "Buy One Can of Pringles and Get One Free" would be accepted because the free item is the same as the item that is purchased.

A maximum of two coupons per item may be redeemed. One coupon must be a manufacturer coupon and one coupon must be a Family Dollar coupon.

Family Dollar Will Not Accept:

  • Coupons from other retailers.
  • Expired coupons.
  • Coupons that do not have a "remit to" address on the coupon.

Also, cash back will not be issued if the value of the coupon is greater than the purchase price of the item. Coupons that are greater than the price of the item can still be redeemed, and the value of the coupon will be dropped to match the price of the item.

See the example below.

A shopper wants to use a  coupon for $1.00 off any size of Johnson's Baby Oil. The only size in stock sells for  $0.80 cents. The cashier accepts the coupon, but adjusts the value of the coupon to $0.80, so that it does not exceed the price of the product.

More Family Dollar Coupon Policies:

  • Coupons can be redeemed only for items that are described in writing on the coupon.  The wording on the coupon dictates which items will be included in the offer, not the image of what is shown on the coupon.
  • The Family Dollar $5 off the total purchase of $25 or more, (or similar type coupons such as $3 off $15), is accepted as long as the net purchase, meaning after all other offers, coupons and discounts have been applied, totals $25 or more.
  • Coupons can be used on sale or clearance items.
  • Digital coupons are the last to be processed.
  • If more than one digital coupon applies, the highest discount offer will be redeemed.

More About Stacking Coupons

Below are two different scenarios of stacking coupons. The first example is within the guideline of the coupon policy. The second example does not fall within the policy.

  • A shopper has a printed internet coupon for $1 off Crest 3D White Toothpaste, and there is a Family Dollar Store coupon for $0.75 off Crest 3D White Toothpaste. The shopper can use both coupons towards the price and drop it by $1.75. Doing this is acceptable because the internet coupon is a manufacturer coupon and the other coupon is a store coupon.
  • A shopper has a paper coupon that came from the inside of a package of Crest 3D White Toothpaste for $1 off and a printed internet coupon for $1 off the same product. The coupons could not be used together on one package of Crest 3D White Toothpaste because both coupons are manufacturer coupons and cannot be combined. Only a manufacturer coupon and a store coupon can be used together.
