Dollar General is selling select items for just pennies, but there’s a catch and you’ll likely have to be quick.
With 19,414 stores across the United States and Mexico, Dollar General is a popular choice for shoppers looking for bargains.
Offering “everyday needs” at “everyday low prices,” the chain is known for its affordable products and convenience… and things just keep getting better.
Customers will now be able to purchase select items for just one penny. And if you’re wondering what to expect, don’t worry – we’ve got everything you need to know.
Dollar General uses a system where items that need to be removed from inventory are discounted and priced at $0.01.
Known as the “Coin List,” you can find the items by looking for the green dot below the price tag. If you’re not sure whether an item counts as a coin, scanning it through the store’s app will display the exact price.
Sales typically take place on Tuesdays, but buyers will want to move quickly. Since the scope of the discount depends on the amount of stock expected to be removed, these deals are only available for a limited time before they hit the market.
Since everyone else is likely heading to their local Dollar General store looking for a bargain, they should get there early on Tuesday morning before all the best items are gone.
However, it’s also important to note that not all stores are participating, as one TikToker who works at Dollar General wrote: “At our store, they took all the penny items off the floor and were told they were unsellable and neither would they. box them or throw them away.”
Still, it’s worth checking to see if there are any deals around, like this hopeful TikToker who asked: “Is there a PS5 at Dollar General?”
