Do you know how their $5.00 off a $25.00 purchase effects the coupons? I went one day with dollar store, manufacturer and the 5 off 25 and they wouldn’t allow me to use the dollar store one. Also, why don’t their cash registers ever accept the coupons. They always have to put them in by hand.

I am so sorry I am just now seeing this!
At DG you always have to give them the $5 off FIRST, then use the other coupons. It’s the only way that works!
I am sorry for the late reply and that you had problems!
I hope that helps!
