Thread Details

I was reading over posts from thread to thread about the stuff you can get cheap or free at family dollar. I did a search so I didn't see a thread for this so i made one. bounce


Band aid bandages $1.20 $1/1 = .20
Reach single toothbrushes $1 (select kinds) $1/1 Free
Colgate toothpaste $1.00
Aquafresh toothpaste $1.00
Kotex pantiliners $1.00 .75 = .25
Febreze spray 3.75 (there are $1 FD cous near them)
Downy (small bottle) $3 $1/1 cous FD neat them


I read that the febreze noticables were 4.50 but i saw no tag but they were out so I don't know if it's actually on sale.

Family Dollar accepts the following types of coupons:
• Family Dollar Coupons with scan-able bar code
(with valid promotion code to be used if coupon won’t scan)
• Manufacturer Coupons with scan-able bar code
(cents off; no hand written values, no photo copies)

(Except buy one get one free or other combinations that require a purchase)
• Manufacturers Buy-One-Get-One-Free coupons or other combinations of
buy X and get Y

• Soft drink bottle caps

• Family Dollar only accepts coupons for merchandise we sell (including the correct
size) and only when presented at time of purchase.
• Family Dollar doesn’t accept coupons from other retailers.
• If a coupon states that it is good for any product, you may use the coupon for any
product even if it is not pictured, unless the coupon states otherwise.
• Coupons must have an expiration date and be presented within the valid dates.
Family Dollar will not accept expired coupons.
• Multiple coupons may be used within one transaction. There is a limit of two coupons
per item. You may use one Family Dollar coupon along with one Manufacturer’s
coupon for the same item, as long as neither coupon states that it is not valid with
other coupons.
• There is no cash back if face value of a coupon is greater than the purchase value of
the item; in that case, Family Dollar will adjust the value of the coupon to equal the
price of the item.
• Internet coupons must be legible and say “Family Dollar Coupon” or “Manufacturer

scan-able bar code. No internet coupons for “Free” goods will be accepted that do
not require a purchase.
• Internet coupons must have a scan-able barcode or valid promotion code in order to
be redeemed.
• If an internet coupon does not scan or if the Family Dollar promotion code entered is
not valid, the coupon will not be accepted.
• A store manager can and should refuse to accept a coupon if it does not meet any or
all of these requirements.

Heads up.... Always Infinity 14ct Overnight, 18ct Regular, 16ct Super are being priced at $4 as a "Hot Price" item. Just because the price doesn't show $4 or the "Hot Price" sign isn't there, have the cashier do a price check.

New Dawn hangtags should be added to the Dawn. They are FD coupon hangtags so you should be able to combine with a manf. coupon. **Update- The hangtags are for 75cents off and they don't expire until the last day of the year.

Oh and... coming soon, most Family Dollar stores are expanding their Food departments, so the clothing department is getting a reduction in size. This means clearance! At the store closest to my home (also a store that I service as a merchandiser) has half of their clothing department 40% off. I personally think FD has the cutest children's clothing. At regular price, you can get a top and bottom set for $6 or $7, but with the clearance... $4 for two pieces and they are SUPER CUTE, way better than Walmart. The clothes hold up. 80% of my youngest daughter's summer wardrobe came from FD and the clothing hasn't fallen apart or shrank even after multiple washes. **Update- I asked the store manager when the clothes would go 70% off and he said August before school starts.

Airwick Freshmatics are $6, making them $2 after the $4 coupon on airwick.com
Finish (Electrosol) Powerball Tabs 12 ct are $3 making them 50cents after the 2.50 coupon from the inserts.
Almost every brand of toothpaste has one priced for a $1. Crest, Colgate, Aquafresh, Closeup, and Aim all had a $1 option, making them free or close to free after most toothpaste coupons. I lost the counter ad, but I know there was a 50cent FD coupon for Colgate, but I don't know the details. I'll get another ad the next time I am there.

The swimsuits for toddlers were 3.60. They are super cute. I paid full price for my daughter's just a month ago. I am thinking of getting her another for next year.

Does anyone have any contact info for Family Dollar, I need a copy of their coupon policy desperately. I pretty much got accused of stealing today while purchasing the Electrasol gel packs that are on sale for $3 and using the $2.50 Q. The cashier said that there is no way I could get them for that and she needed to call the manager, I said fine and I would wait. She came back and said that she could only take one coupon per VISIT, but still there was no way that I should be getting them for .50. Yuk I felt like saying that I get stuff for free all the time, you should try it!!
I really try and stay under the radar, usually if they pull the one per purchase/trans stuff, I simply say fine and come back later or ring up separately, But this is the second time this store has made me feel like such a criminal. I emailed once and got a call from the Manager, I just wanted to clarify their policy but it does not seem to have helped. I am hoping for a print out of some kind that I can take with me. Maybe I should just PM at Walmart and use my Q's there!!

I don't know their coupon policy but I will tell you what happened to me on my last Family Dollar visit. I went in to do the Bandaid and Reach toothbrush deal. I had 2 coupons of each. The cashier said that I would have to do 2 different transactions. So I gave 1 box of Bandaids and 1 Reach toothbrush gave the coupons she rang it up the total was like .50 cents or something. I didn't have cash on me so I gave my debit card. It went through fine. She rang up the 2nd order and the same thing and gave my debit card and the register wouldn't take my debit card because it flagged it as a duplicate order. That is when I went to my car and got the cash and it went through fine. My cashier was nice about it though. So at my Family Dollar they won't take more then one coupon for the same item. Kinda stinks but that is okay with me as I don't go that often to FD.

Thanks for the tip. I still don't understand how to do that? I click Tools and the options it gives is Deal Alert, Slickdeals Mobile, Amazon Fillers, Credit Card Deals, Price Lookup, Global Search, FAQ and Product Reviews Forum. I'm not that computer savy so I would need step by step instructions on how to do this. Thanks in advance if anyone can tell me how!

Thanks for the idea, I will try that, I don't go there much either, just every now and then when a sale is good.

The problem with the coupons is that the computers won't allow more than one of the same FD coupon per transaction. The cashiers aren't trying to be jerks about it, the computer won't let them do it. As far as being accused of stealing because your total is low, that is something I WOULD call corporate about. Family Dollar has a high turn over rate and low wages, so employees and even managers are not very well trained and as you have noticed, they aren't very good at customer service. At the store I frequent and am a vendor at, they have had 8 managers in less than two years. You just aren't going to get the quality of service you are looking for with such high turn over rates; people don't care about you if they aren't going to be there next week.
