One of the easiest ways to start couponing is to use a manufacturer coupon or rebate offer with Dollar Tree items. Since many coupons approach (or exceed!) $1 savings, and Dollar Tree products only cost $1.25, you can save a lot of money and maybe even get items for free.

Manufacturer coupons are the only coupons Dollar Tree accepts. Rebate app offers from the likes of Ibotta, Checkout51, and Fetch Rewards also work because you don’t take any action until after you make a purchase and have a receipt. Dollar Tree doesn’t know or care!

Here are some of the best deals you can find at Dollar Tree, but as a rule of thumb, anything you find a manufacturer’s coupon for that Dollar Tree sells is fair game as long as the quantities match the coupon.

2. Get Dollar Tree products — like medicine — for free when you use a coupon.

According to the Dollar Tree coupon policy, they will “accept a manufacturer coupon for over a dollar on a single item, but the manufacturer coupon value will be reduced to the purchase price of the item.”

This means you’ll get the item for free, but Dollar Tree won’t open the till and hand you money if your coupon value is more than the cost of your item. This is common for medicine because coupons tend to be for more than just $1 off.

Buy 1 Tylenol Extra Strength, $1.25, regular price
Use one – $2/1 Tylenol Adult or PM coupon
Final price: FREE


Look for these brands:

  • Vicks
  • Alka-Seltzer
