Dollar Tree is full of amazing deals, both in-store and online!

Buying online in bulk at Dollar Tree can be easier (and sometimes cheaper) than heading to the store for just one $1 item. It’s also a great option when you can’t find multiples of the same item in-store. That’s when the beauty of online shopping at Dollar Tree comes in to play!

We’re sharing the top items to buy online at Dollar Tree that are not only great deals, but they just make more sense to buy in bulk anyway.

Hip Tip: Keep in mind that shipping is an additional charge, so we recommend opting for free shipping to your store (if available), however you may have a handling fee. This can vary by item.

Items that are marked as “Backordered” may be delayed by up to 30 days if you select free ship to store. For faster delivery, you can always select UPS shipping if you need a back-ordered item sooner!


1. Score tons of birthday balloons from Dollar Tree for a balloon arch or stash them away for all your future parties.

Love to host tons of parties with balloons? When you buy a bulk order of balloons online at Dollar Tree, you’ll always be prepared for a party!

Need even more balloons? This pack is slightly more expensive, but an even greater deal since you’ll get almost 2,500 balloons in one order!


2. Stock up on Scotch Tape for all your school, office, and gift-wrapping needs!

Dollar Tree’s 2-packs of Scotch tape are a long-time reader favorite, and we love that you can order them online in quantities as small as four at a time. You’ll want to keep a roll in your desk drawer, gift closet, and pretty much every room of the house!


3.  These Starbucks-inspired knockoff reusable tumblers can be personalized and would make a great gift.

New at Dollar Tree, these three-outlet extension cords are perfect to keep around your home to safely power a variety of indoor appliances or computer components. A similar extension cord costs over $7 each at Walmart, so you’ll definitely want to stock up at this price!


6. Every day white dinner plates are a perfect, affordable option for your kitchen.

Not only will you be able to get an entire set of dishes for only $6, but oftentimes your local store might not even have sufficient stock or they might not even have the proper materials to wrap them up so you can transport them safely from the store to your kitchen. Buying plates in bulk online is a huge win!


7. Vacuum seal bags will be perfect for storage and cleaning out your seasonal clothes.

Packing up all of last season’s clothes? Then you need these bags in your life to get organized and take up less space in your closets. By ordering a 12 pack online at Dollar Tree, you’ll be able to store all your seasonal clothes and more!


8. Order a set of clear drinking glasses for all your future dinner plans.

These highly-rated building blocks will have your kids building their hearts out! They come in packs of 48, with six different colors to choose from.

Reviewers love them because they’re LEGO-compatible, so they would be an inexpensive way to add to your child’s stash of building bricks. They’d be perfect for goody bags at a LEGO-themed birthday party too!


10. Stock up on tissue paper for all occasions.

    Do the Vacuum seal bags actually work?

    Their balloons are amazing. I celebrated my parents’ anniversary on August 31, and the balloons I gave to them are still just as big as they were when I gave them to my parents. We joke they’ll be around until Christmas. 😉

      That’s awesome! I have loved their balloons too! Thanks so much for commenting!
