1. Shop Dollar Tree bread to save 50%.

Skip the 20-ounce package of sandwich bread from Target for $3.29, where you’re paying $0.16/oz. Instead, buy the 16-ounce loaf of sandwich bread from Dollar Tree and pay $1.25, or $0.08/oz.

The 16-ounce loaf of Baker’s Choice sandwich bread from Dollar Tree is half the cost per ounce compared to bread from Target.

2. Go with the Dollar Tree pregnancy test and save at least $2.25 per test.

So you have to pee in a cup instead of directly onto a strip. That’s the only real difference between Dollar Tree pregnancy tests and those you find at Target. Well, that and the price tag!

Stop spending up to $6.99 for a pack of two pregnancy tests at Target and opt for the $1.25 tests at Dollar Tree instead. That’s a savings of $2.25 per test (or 64%).


3. Get free Dollar Tree medicine when you use a coupon.

Paying $1.25 for six caplets of Tylenol Extra Strength at Dollar Tree doesn’t sound like that great of a deal when you compare it to paying $10.99 for a 100-ct bottle at Target. That’s $0.21 per caplet at Dollar Tree compared to just $0.11 per caplet at Target. But hear me out.

You can actually score free Tylenol at Dollar Tree if you use the right coupon. Here’s how:

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.

Also look for these Dollar Tree medicine name brands:

  • Advil
  • Aleve
  • Alka-Seltzer
  • Emergen-C
  • Halls
  • Tums
  • Tylenol
  • Vicks

TIP: Buying medicine from Dollar Tree is only a good deal if you have an eligible coupon. Otherwise skip it and head to Walmart or Costco for the best price.


4. Save 47% with Dollar Tree’s version of the popular Pink Stuff Cleaning Paste.

The Pink Stuff Cleaning Paste has a cult-like following on Amazon, but it normally sells for $5.97 for a 17.63-ounce container on Amazon.

Instead of shelling out $0.34/oz for the popular cleaning paste from Amazon, try Dollar Tree’s knockoff version instead. Their Multipurpose Cleaning Paste sells for just $1.25 for a 7-ounce container, which comes out to just $0.18/oz.

Users swear it works equally as well as Amazon’s name-brand version.


5. Pay 56% less when you buy shelf-stable milk from Dollar Tree.

Walmart’s shelf-stable milk runs $0.09/oz, or $2.98 for a 32-ounce container. By comparison, Dollar Tree sells a 32-ounce box of shelf-stable milk for only $1.25, or $0.04/oz. That’s a 56% savings from Dollar Tree.



6. Buy pads from Dollar Tree for $0.08/each — that’s 60% cheaper than Walmart’s price.

Pads from Dollar Tree are actually a pretty good deal at $0.08/pad for the Sure & Free package of 16 pads.

To compare, Walmart’s Equate pack of 102 pads is priced at $20.12, or $0.20/pad.


7. Get makeup brands like Wet n’ Wild for about 62% less than Target’s prices.

Wet n’ Wild mascara runs $3.29 at Target, but you can find it at Dollar Tree for just $1.25. That’s a $2.04 savings on one tube of mascara.

10. Save $3.24 on Ultimate White Strips from Dollar Tree vs. Amazon.

Amazon and Dollar Tree both sell the same six-pack of Ultimate White Strips with coconut oil.

But Amazon sells the six-pack of white strips for $4.49, while Dollar Tree sells the exact same pack for just $1.25. That’s a 72% savings if you buy from Dollar Tree.

TIP: Skip the trip to the store and get the same prices from Dollar Tree when you use Instacart delivery. Instacart doesn’t mark up prices for Dollar Tree deliveries, so you’re only paying extra for the delivery fee and tip (but it might be worth the convenience).

Here’s how it works for Dollar Tree tampons:

Look for these tampon brands at Dollar Tree:
