Coupons Stacking
Dollar General does allow the stacking of a single Manufacturer Coupon and a single Dollar General Coupon per single item in a transaction. Stacking of 2 or more Manufacturer Coupons per item is not allowed. 

The stacking of 2 or more Dollar General Coupons in a transaction is allowed unless otherwise noted on the coupon or associated promotional art. 

Dollar General does not double or multiply the value of coupons. 

Transactions cannot be broken up to avoid coupon stacking restrictions.  

Coupon Overage
If a coupon value is more than the price of the item, the remaining value will be applied to the balance of the transaction. Coupon overages can only be applied to the balance and will not be given back at the end of the transaction. Coupon overages will only be applied to the store merchandise remaining in the transaction and cannot be applied to gift cards, pre-paid money cards, or phone cards. Other restrictions may apply. 

Cash back will not be given. 

DG Digital Coupons
The DG Digital Coupon program utilizes paperless, digital coupons. Available coupons are featured on the DG Digital Coupons page on, or on the DG mobile app.  Digital Coupon account holders must +ADD the coupons they intend to use, which are then loaded directly into their account and redeemed at checkout by typing their phone number into the pin pad. 

To set up an account visit  Only one DG Digital Coupons account per person is allowed.   

Unless labeled a DG Store Coupon in the Digital Coupon Gallery, DG Digital Coupons are Manufacturer Coupons. Manufacturer DG Digital Coupons cannot be combined with any other type of Manufacturer coupon on the same item in a single transaction. 

If there is a conflict between a DG Digital Coupon and a Print Coupon for the same item, the first one applied will be counted toward the transaction and the other will not, regardless of value.

Occasionally, Dollar General will offer specific Mobile and Text Message Coupons.  These coupons are Dollar General Coupons and must have a valid Dollar General bar code in addition to a visible and valid expiration date. Unless otherwise specified, these coupons can be combined with a single Manufacturer Coupon for the same item in a single transaction.
