Hip Tips to keep in mind…

tide simply bags on shelf

  • Please keep in mind that you can change up this scenario to grab products that you typically use in your home as long as the total is at least $25 before coupons and pricing may vary in your area. This is just one of the many scenarios that you can do and save big!
  • You will need to be logged in to your Dollar General account in order to see all of the digital coupons mentioned above. You can clip the coupons in advance or scan the products with your DG app in-store, however, my store has spotty service so I like to clip in advance. Some coupons may not come up by searching the name, so you’ll need to open the digital coupons page and scroll if you don’t find it immediately.
  • I find that it works best to enter your phone number into the keypad AFTER the cashier has scanned all of your items and hit total.
  • Be sure to check out with a cashier! I’ve tried self-checkout at two different stores and my digital coupons did not all apply to my purchase even when I entered my phone number!
  • My store (and every other DG I’ve been in) seems to be a wifi/cell dead zone with no service beyond the entrance to the store! I place my items into the shopping cart and head to the front of the store to use the Dollar General app to scan them to be sure the coupons are attaching prior to check out.

    At my local DG the $5 off $25 is deducted after all other coupons are applied. Does anyone else have similar issues?
    Any ideas as to how I can get the $5 off $25 to be applied first? Thanks for all the great deals!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, SJ! We have always found it to work for us as listed above. The offers will all apply automatically since they are digital.

    • Mbunny

      I have the cashier scan my paper $5 off $25 before I enter my phone number and deduct the rest of my coupons. So far it’s worked for me when previously I had the same issue you’re having.

    No lysol coupon.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! Maybe double check that you are logged in. You could also try changing your location OR grab the coupon on the product page of a qualifying Lysol item. Hoping this helps!


    No colgate coupon for me 🙁 Now going to see what else I can substitute with to still get a good deal! Thanks for all the legwork H2S!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Michelle! Maybe try changing your location. Hoping that might help!

      • MICHELLE

        No. But I did find these 3 items that I may be able to substitute out just as reasonable …

        Buy 1 Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Shampoo/Conditioner 12.5 oz $3 each
        Buy Soft Scrub cleanser $3 each
        Buy Skinny Pop $3 each

        Use the $2/1 Garnier Fructis Pure Clean digital coupon
        Use the $1/1 soft scrub cleaner digital coupon
        Use the $1/1 Skinny pop popcorn digital coupon

        Thanks again!! You guys rock!!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Aww, You’re so welcome! Thank YOU for sharing and for the super sweet comment! 💖

  4. Renee

    Awesome!!! Thank you so much! I always do the DG deals on Saturday!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Renee! Happy shopping!

  5. Joy

    Thanks so much for the dollar general scenarios, I always look forward to them. Also, I hit the clearance aisle and match items up with coupons on the app, sometimes I score big!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      It always makes us feel good to know you like this type of post! It’s very much appreciated!

    Why is it that most Dollar General’s have no cell service?!? Is it the type of building construction, or are they actually killing the reception inside the store? Whatever it is, it makes me crazy. Glad I’m not the only person pushing a cartful of stuff to the front of the store. 😅

    • Angela (Hip Sidekick)

      OMG! There are only two spots in the store that actually work for me, one is right by the front door, and one spot right by the razors! Their workers are used to seeing me each week and call the front door spot my “office” when I’m checking the deals! 🤣

    Just a heads-up: I just bought the Tide Simply and the digital Tide coupon did not come off. When I clipped it yesterday, the app showed that the Tide Simply (pods and liquid) were eligible products. Today when I got home, I checked again and they were no longer shown under eligible products – only regular Tide was listed.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh no! That’s so odd. Thank you so much for letting us know!
