Family Dollar Stores, the second largest discount retailer of its kind, has over 8,000 neighborhood stores throughout the U.S. Value-conscious shoppers enjoy competitive prices on merchandise ranging from food, beverages, household cleaners, laundry products, housewares and pet supplies. To add to the everyday savings, Family Dollar has released its official coupon policy.

Compared to other stores in its category, the Family Dollar coupon policy is as competitive as its prices.

One of biggest cost savers to shoppers is that they can stack coupons for extra savings. At Family Dollar, stacking coupons is accomplished by redeeming a manufacturer coupon and a store coupon on a single item.

Family Dollar accepts manufacturer coupons and Family Dollar-issued coupons including:

Coupons printed from the internet must meet the following criteria:

  • Be the original coupon - no photocopies
  • Have a scanable barcode 
  • Have an expiration date

Internet coupons can be printed in black and white or color and must be legible. It is required that the coupons have “Family Dollar” or “Manufacturer Coupon” printed on the coupon and a "remit to" address,

Using Family Dollar Coupons

Shoppers can get the Family Dollar coupons in some weekly newspaper ad inserts or by going to the Family Dollar weekly ad online and then printing the coupons.

Coupon Redemption Policy:

Family Dollar has a few redemption policies and restrictions.

  • Coupons must be for the exact product described in writing on the coupon, even if the text on the coupon doesn't match the picture. The picture is irrelevant -- it's the text that matters.
  • Coupons for free items will only be accepted if a purchase is required to get one free. You'll get one item free if you pay for the first one -- you cannot use two of these coupons to get both items free.

    A maximum of two coupons per item may be redeemed. One coupon must be a manufacturer coupon and one coupon must be a Family Dollar coupon.

    Family Dollar Will Not Accept:

    • Coupons from other retailers.
    • Expired coupons.
    • Coupons that do not have a "remit to" address on the coupon.
    • Coupons that are on bottle caps.
    • Coupons with a face value that exceeds the item's cost.

    More Family Dollar Coupon Policies:

    • The company does not match competitor coupons.
    • Coupons must be presented at the time of purchase.
    • Coupon offers are valid while supplies last.
    • Counterfeit coupons are not accepted.
    • Coupons must have a scannable GS1 data barcode. UPC-A coupon barcodes are not valid unless combined with a scannable GS1 data barcode.
    • Some items not available in all stores.

    More About Stacking Coupons

    Below are two different scenarios of stacking coupons. The first example is within the guideline of the coupon policy. The second example does not fall within the policy.

    • A shopper has a printed internet coupon for $1 off Crest 3D White Toothpaste, and there is a Family Dollar Store coupon for $0.75 off Crest 3D White Toothpaste. The shopper can use both coupons toward the price and drop it by $1.75. Doing this is acceptable because the internet coupon is a manufacturer coupon and the other coupon is a store coupon.
    • A shopper has a paper coupon that came from the inside of a package of Crest 3D White Toothpaste for $1 off and a printed internet coupon for $1 off the same product. The coupons could not be used together on one package of Crest 3D White Toothpaste because both coupons are manufacturer coupons and cannot be combined. Only a manufacturer coupon and a store coupon can be used together.
