Free Crest toothpaste from the Dollar Tree in the past. (You can check out that post to see what the coupons look like).
Here's a little something that's been happening the last couple of months with those Crest coupons. For some strange reason, after processing the Crest coupons the register will come up with a negative balance instead of coming up as a $0 balance. The Dollar Tree has a strict policy that they will not give any cash back to the customer when there is overage due to coupons. (I have been to Dollar Tree stores that have handed me back overage, but it's not the norm). What the cashiers have been doing is taking the .14 - .18 cents out of their register and putting it on the side. I figured I would put that change to use. So now when I go to the Dollar Tree to use my coupons for free stuff, I also add one product that has a coupon that is worth under .50. That product will now cost less because the overage is added on to the total. That is how I paid .67 for the Dawn in the picture above! Here are a few other coupons I use: Bounty, Fruit Roll ups, Palmolive and Colgate toothpaste. Clever, huh? Now go get your free toothpaste!
By the way, I paid $2.05 for everything in the picture above. ;) Happy shopping.
