It's already 90% off at one of my stores. The rest are still at 75% off.

Found a Herb Garden Kit for a penny and a Justice League Hopper Ball from 09 for $0.50.

I have a general question. While I know there is no absolute schedule for their sales and markdowns. Has anybody noticed a trend as far as weekend sales vs. weekday sales. I mean do you see more of the sales typically on weekends or weekdays?
I try to limit my trips because I don't have one close by. Wondering if I'm better off going during the week or on a weekend.
I know it tends to be kind of random :-/

The sales normally run from Sunday to Sunday! But the $5/30 or $5/25 usually is Saturday or sometimes on Friday. Several times a year there are special promos. You need to always check the sale papers or website for these. Go to the website and sign up for sale or promo alerts to come to you via text message. I hope this is useful.

Definitely!! Even better if it's an older store.

Found something today that I'd never seen on any of the boards. Will get brother to post pictures for me tomorrow.

However, i can't seem to do it in my area. I have raised complaint with the local dm and raised it to the regional manager because he was no help. However, corporate has told me multiple times that i'm right. So, feel free to try it. Look for rugs with a tan dot near the price tag and clothes with pink and gray dots. They will all be a penny. Ymmv regarding on whether or not you'll be able to purchase them. However, i haven't seen another post online of anyone who has had as much hassle as i have. So, i think its just my area.

Thank you. I signed up for the emails and texts. I think my stores must seem to do a lot of unadvertised sales. I'll go in one store and they'll have the advertised sale plus an extra % off, and then I'll go down the road a couple miles and they'll have something completely different. Maybe its like to the managers special or something.

I've seen several people mention watching videos on you tube, but can't seem to find much listed for penny sales for dollar general. Any suggestions on people to subscribe to or keyword to search?

Do a google search for Dollar General + penny items. It brings up all sorts of videos on youtube + a facebook page. I don't Facebook, but found the youtube videos helpful as I could actually see what people were finding.

As promised, here are pictures of the stuff I found yesterday. A big thanks to my brother for taking and uploading the pictures! The first picture is of a camouflage t-shirt with a tag of F12 and a gray dot which I found hidden among the exact same camouflage t-shirts with tags of F13 and gray dots.




The next 3 pictures are more exciting. I found them on a high shelf in the back of a rather dingy Dollar General in Sedalia MO. The front of the tag (not pictured) says cool stuff! at the top of the tag in lower case,then Rolling Duffle with a price tag square of $12 off to the side with a pinkish/red dot underneath. The words 18 inch is several inches below the words Rolling Duffle. I wasn't too sure they would ring up a penny, but decided to get a price check since I had never seen them before and the back of the tag seemed to indicate they were manufactured in August 2012. The manager did not want to sell these items + the t-shirts I had found to me, but did so after calling corporate. *So Dollar General Corporate is available on the weekends. When I went to the next Dollar General a few miles away, I noticed the manager talking on the phone while removing the same type of bags from a shelf of purses and bags, then returning them to the same shelf several minutes later. The bags were made by the same manufacturer, but the designs were different and the tags had a date of 2013 on them. She also hung around the cash register while I was in the store. LOL. First time I'd had any of the DG managers 'call ahead' to warn the next store.





Enjoy--hope this helps! Sorry for the delay!

I went to DG this morning and green dot was still 70% off, gardening stuff was 60% off, yellow dot and green star clothes were $3.00, and the pool and summer toys were 90% off. I actually had everything but the clothes scanned.

I know some stores are on different mark downs so if anyone does find any green dot items for 90% off today please report.
