Grabbing Dollar Tree freebies with rebate apps is one of my favorite dollar store shopping tips. Plus, you can combine these rebates with manufacturer coupons for rebate app moneymakers! Who doesn’t want a little free cash?
Here are all the apps you can use to grab free things and get money for shopping at Dollar Tree.
Bookmark the Dollar Tree deals page so you never miss a freebie.
1.Download the Krazy Coupon Lady app and hunt for coupons and freebies.
When you download the free KCL app, you get access to every Dollar Tree freebie available. That means if there’s an opportunity to use a rebate app or manufacturer coupon (or both on one item), you’ll be the first to know.
Plus, use the KCL coupon page to locate coupons for Dollar Tree freebies. Just remember, with the Dollar Tree coupon policy, they won’t give you any cash back (overage) if your coupon is worth more than the item, but I’ll show you how to get around that below. Also, remember that Dollar Tree only accepts two internet printable coupons per day from a single customer.
2. Use Ibotta rebates with MFR coupons at Dollar Tree for Ibotta moneymakers.
Remember how I said Dollar Tree won’t pay overage?
Well, they won’t, but when you use a rebate app like Ibotta and stack that with MFR coupons at Dollar Tree, Ibotta will pay you the overage. But, beware because Dollar Tree has odd sizes for many of their name brand products, and this disqualifies them from the size requirements fine printed on the MFR coupons. Read the fine print and the make sure the product qualifies. That being said, some Dollar Tree name brands do qualify for MFR coupons.
Here’s what I did to earn a quick fifty cents in my Ibotta account and get a free body wash:
Use $0.75/1 Suave Body Wash MFR coupon at register
Pay $0.50 at the register
Submit $0.75/1 Suave body wash Ibotta offer
Final Price $0.25 Moneymaker!
3. Use the Coupons.com app for easy freebies.
The Coupons.com app offers rebates on brands Dollar Tree carries. Check out this snack almost-freebie I just saw at Dollar Tree:
Pay $1.25, submit for $1 coupons.com credit
Final Price: $0.25
After you redeem rebates, they’ll show up right in your PayPal account, no minimum required.
4. Use Checkout51 to rack up some cash.
Rinse and repeat what you did with Ibotta for Checkout51. Add your deals, shop at Dollar Tree, scan your receipt, and build up your cash.
Here’s a nice near-freebie opportunity that caught my eye:
Pay $1, submit for $1 Checkout51 credit
Final Price: $0.25
Once you hit $20 on your Checkout51 account, you can request a check and cash out.
5. Scan any receipt you want with Fetch Rewards.
Plus, you’ll get extra points for scanning a receipt with certain brands Dollar Tree carries like Kleenex and Lay’s. I just saw an offer for 740 points for spending $15 on Kleenex products.
You can start redeeming around 3,500 points for a $4 Amazon or Target gift card.
6. Use TopCashback for cash back on online Dollar Tree orders.
Plus, watch out for special freebie deals from TopCashback. In 2020, they were offering $10 back when you spent $10 on dish towels on DollarTree.com.
7. Scan receipts with ReceiptPal for free gift cards.
Take a picture of any receipt — including Dollar Tree — and you can earn 25 points per receipt, plus 300 more for connecting your email account and hundreds for completing different surveys.
You can cash these points out for freebies like a $5 Amazon gift card for 2,200 points.
8. Shop through Rakuten for your Dollar Tree online order.
If you like buying in bulk on DollarTree.com, shop through Rakuten so you’ll get 1% back. You might not get immediate freebies, but you’ll definitely build up some money to use for your next Dollar Tree run.
9. Use the CoinOut app to build up some cash for your next visit.
The CoinOut app keeps things super easy. Just scan a picture of your Dollar Tree receipt (or any receipt, they’re not picky), and you’ll get a random amount on your account. In my experience, it’s an average of about $0.10.
It might not sound like much, but basically every ten receipts gives you a Dollar Tree freebie.
10. You can combine (most of) these rebate apps.
It won’t work across all of the apps we’ve mentioned, but you can definitely combine most of these rebates for a major payday. Here’s a hypothetical of what you can put together:
- $1 off Colgate manufacturer coupon from the KCL coupons page
- $1 Checkout51 rebate on Colgate toothpaste
- $0.20 Ibotta rebate on any grocery order
- $2 Coupons.com app rebate on Colgate toothpaste
- $0.10 on the CoinOut app
- 25 points on Fetch Rewards
- 25 points on ReceiptPal
Boom! Right there you have a free tube of toothpaste, $3.30 on your rebate apps, plus 50 points to use for gift cards in your other apps.
(You can’t combine the TopCashback and Rakuten rebates, since you have to click through one and complete your online order.)
