Default Updated Family Dollar Coupon Policy 2013

Visit DollarStoreDeals.net to see these deals and more!


Family Dollar has updated their coupon policy recently and should make couponing a lot easier! This policy is word for word what I found on their website, but I have italicized and bolded what I feel like are key points.  Comments in [ ] are mine!  :) I would definitely have a copy of this in your coupon binder when you make trips to Family Dollar. Their policy is VERY friendly and doesn’t have a lot of crazy limits like many stores.

Family Dollar Stores ACCEPTS Manufacturer and Family Dollar issued coupons including:
  • Printed Coupons
  • Internet Coupons
  • Mobile Coupons
Family Dollar Stores ACCEPTS Manufacturer and Family Dollar issued coupons that meet these
requirements:
  • Only ONE Manufacturer coupon and ONE Family Dollar coupon can be used per ITEM in a
    transaction. [This is called stacking!]
  • Duplicate coupons in one transaction are accepted as long as there is an item purchased for
    each coupon.
  • All Family Dollar coupons must have a scannable barcode or valid promotion code.
  • Printed coupons must be original (no photocopies) and have a printed expiration date.
  • Internet coupons may either be in black and white or color and must be legible and read “Family
    Dollar” or “Manufacturer Coupon”.
  • Mobile coupons must have a valid promotion code.
Please note:
  • Coupons can be redeemed only for items that are described on the coupon. The copy on the
    coupon dictates which items are to be included in the offer, not the image of what is shown on
    the coupon.
  • Coupons can be redeemed if the value of the coupon is greater than the price of the item. In this
    case, the value of the coupon will be discounted to match the price of the item.
  • Buy One Get One Free coupons are only accepted if the exact same 2 products are the “buy”
    and the “free”.
  • Family Dollar $5 off $25 coupon is accepted as long as the net purchase, AFTER all other offers,
    coupons and/or discounts have been applied is $25 or more.
  • Coupons are acceptable for use on sale or clearance items.
Family Dollar does NOT ACCEPT coupons that:
  • Are from other retailers.
  • Are expired.
  • Are for “free” items that do not require a purchase. We do accept coupons for items that are
    equal to or greater than the price of the item and reduce the price to free. [This should clear up the CoverGirl coupons!]
  • Are manufacturer coupons that do not have a “remit to” address on the coupon.
  • Are bottle caps.
Please note:

Competitor coupons are not matched.

for posting!

Having a bit of a problem with the BOGO. I'm wondering if you can only use if it's a buy A get A free and not a buy A and get B free. Or, are they just saying the item must absolutely match what is described on the coupon - which is a duh. If it's the former, no buy razor get shave cream free, etc.

What do you all think?

ETA: looks like the former. Not understanding why a buy A get B free is such an issue. C'est la vie of a couponer.

all looks good except this,

at DG, it is based on gross total and then we just have to give the $5 first followed by other MQs but not store Qs.

Yes. That's one of the reasons I rarely shop FD. Even if it's a cents off coupon that will make it FREE I still figure out a better deal at DG. (Unless DG doesn't sell it, but that's not often enough to get me out to FD)

That said, some people do find good deals there. If you're in an area without many shopping alternatives, FD may be a great option for you.

I don't shop FD, but I gotta say, I love how they broke it down in plain english and they addressed common coupon issues too, like going by what's in the picture not the wording, etc. You can tell they've heard A LOT of complaints from couponers, lol.

ITA. Kudos to them for sure. Wish DT would take a cue from them!

Hmmm... It still doesn't say how to manage a situation of using a $/x q... Kinda like today, when I tried to get 2 Eras ($1 ea) and use a $2/2 MQ. It says that q has to be adjusted to item price but in this particular case, there's no adjustment but there's a beep... Does anyone know? TIA

HI everyone at WUC! I just wanted to notify you all that Family Dollar has updated their coupon policy and they've added the ability for all stores to accept “Free Item” in print, excludes home print (internet) coupons. Their new policy is available on their website now. I received a personal email from Kevin *****, SME – Store Operations Support.
