With the 1 cent items as described in this thread, those are just items that may or may not be in a store. It would depend on if the sales people in that store have pulled them all off the shelf or not. If you find any of the ones we have mentioned with those specific colors, those are the ones that would be 1 cent at the register. I specified the words those specific colors to let you know that only certain ones are the 1 cent if they are available. They are YMMV and not available in all stores.

No luck on Penny items for me today :-( The Pink, blue and tan rang up regular price, I'm going to hit another DG hopefully this weekend. That store is a little more or less organized so they may have them, the store I hit today just got redone so I think they pulled all the Penny items :-(

These items will then ring .01 at the register.

According to Customer Service (thanks, bbglfl), if a customer brings up .01 merchandise they are supposed to be sold to the customer - this instruction is located in the SOP manual at each store. Some store managers are adamant that they cannot be sold to the customer.

If you are refused sale of the penny items you bring to the register there are a few things you can do:

1) Tell the cashier/manager that CS specialists have said that the penny items brought to the register can be sold and it says so in the SOP manual. Explain that you will kindly wait if they'd like to go and look.

2) Call customer service and verify. It works best if you're still in the store. If you need the number, here it is: 1-800-678-9258

3) Walk away! Is it really worth arguing with management for a few penny items? I recently did this because it really wasn't worth my time and aggravation. I also value my relationship with the store in which I primarily shop. To me, it isn't worth possibly severing that great relationship for a couple of penny items.

Knowledge is power. Use it wisely.

As always, if you have any questions don't hesitate ask or to PM a Dollar Store Forum Leader (KountryKouponMommy, countryldy812, angelsandwolves or ssliz) or a WUC Mod.
Bump!

It all depends. They have been around a long time. When an item is discontinued or is 'out of season', it will generally go on the 'clearance slide'-start at 25% off and eventually make it to a penny. Hth

so the one cent dot color changes week by week or month right? And not one color is .01 for everything it goes by category? so i saw a tan dot right now is only a penny for rugs and bath mats but a pink is for clothing, and this color will change again in a while for penny deals? I am just trying to get ahold of this idea and it is very hard to find one big explanation on what color to look for.
I had gone to my store tonight with a snapshot of a pic from this site of penny deals and only found the money counting bank. It was on the top self and had no price or tag on it at all. When i took it up she scanned it and told me it was $6.99? I looked up every isle of the store and could not find anything and found lots without prices. Found a toy story woodie knock off pillow pet but once again had no price and was afraid to have her price check again bc i didnt want to blow my cover. My DG store is one of the most unorganized stores i have ever gone to and had expected to find things, but not sure on what to look for at this point.

There is another thread under the clearance section about penny items. The original post is updated and they have exactly what is ringing up a penny, or at least what should be ringing up a penny. Read through that thread and it should give you some more information.

to WUC and the Dollar Stores forum! Ambier is absolutely right. There is a thread that has a list in the first post what has been reported to ring at a penny. Here's a link to it: Dollar General Penny Items: Post Your Find Here
