It would have been even less oop but my $5/$25 got kicked off on one transaction after they owed me money and I added stuff to it. I still only paid $2.44 even without it. And in one transaction my digital q for the Tide and the Mist Twist didn’t work but I didn’t know what the problem was and there was a line and I was only paying $4.33 so I didn’t cause a fuss. My two lowest transactions were $.15 and $.61!!

What I do is get my total before coupons right to $25 with the goal being $5-$6 oop. That way the $5/$25 covers the oop. The way DG does the $5/$25 makes absolutely no sense to me because they take a percentage off each item instead of just taking $5 off the total. It shows on your receipt as “store discount”. Sometimes their digital q show that way but not often. Sometimes (a lot of times, actually) this really works to my advantage because somehow I end up with more than the $5/$25. One time I had $7.29 in store discounts! I watch my receipts and that was just straight discount, not digital q or sale prices. I even spoke to the district manager about it because one time my sister and I got the EXACT SAME 12 items but they were rang up in different order and our totals were $2 different!! He has no clue. He told me later he brought it up in a corporate meeting and they didn’t want to hear it. Whatever! I think they’re losing money but I’m not complaining. My advice is put your most expensive items to be rung up first!! Also have them hit total before you hand over your paper q.

This weekend I could tell they were messing with the system because on one transaction they owed me less than a dollar (.22 I think) and when I added a .35 gum it made my total $3.xx! I don’t recommend this because it can mess up your q but I had her take the gum back off and I ended up owing $1.xx. I paid it. But it makes absolutely no sense. None. If they owe me .22 and I add a .35 item I should just owe the difference. Right?! But I will gladly pay $1.43 for $25 worth of product.
