Dollar Tree – Free & Cheap Items After Coupons!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

The Dollar Tree has started to accept manufactures coupons! Since everything is a $1 at the store, there should be some great deals to be had.

** One important note: Dollar Trees are a franchise, so products will vary store to store. The list below is a sampling of what has been found at some Dollar Trees, but we cannot guarantee that you will find these exact items at your local store.  Make sure they double check sizes too!  You can only use 2 printable coupons total PER transaction, not per product – per transaction (even if its for different items).

A couple of notes about using coupons at Dollar Tree:

  • Remember that their register systems are older at many stores, and so coupons have to be entered manually, so please be patient.  The Dollar Tree won’t take a “free” coupon, such as “Try this item FREE” or “BOGO Free”
  • They should be accepting coupons with a value of $1 (or more) off, even if it means a free item, they just can’t take a coupon actually says the product is free.
  • Also, the coupon policy on the website is just ever so slightly different than what was emailed to the managers this last week, so we strongly recommend that you have a copy of the coupon policy printed and with you, if possible.

    Ok, is it just my Dollar Tree, 72nd and Portland in Tacoma, or are all Dollar Trees difficult? They said I can’t use a $1 off 2 coupon, it has to be off of only one product. Also I can only use 1 like coupon per transaction. So if I have 4 maybelline coupons I have to make 4 transactions…it really wasn’t worth my time. So sad. Was looking forward to some great deals.

    The $1/1 ANY Disney or Marvel Item Coupon, is a vitamin coupon, NOT for toys! I have contacted my friend that is a DT manager, she has contacted corporate on this!
