Learn how to find clothing, shoes, and other items for only a penny

Dollar General Penny Items: How to find and Purchase

If your are a constant or sporadic reader of this blog, then you know that I've had a moderate amount of success finding and purchasing items for only one cent. You may find plenty of penny items, however, there's no guarantee that you will leave the store with them. Why?  If it was left to each store manager, the odds of you leaving with a penny item are none.

First, you need to familiarize yourself with known penny items, you can do this by viewing my videos below:

ATTENTION: For an exclusive list of over a hundred items (including UPC's) that you can purchase for a penny, leave your email address in the comment section below.

Second, now that you have an idea of what to look for, you need to know more. Like if you see seasonal items from the fall, summer,winter etc,. the likelihood of these items being marked down to a penny are very high. Below is a list of additional items to look for:

Third, Know your rights as it pertains to being a Dollar General customer. 9 out of 10 times the cashier will inform you that they're not allowed to sell you a penny item -- this is not the case.

Once a customer brings a penny item up to the register, and that item is scanned, by their own rules located in their SOP manual, they must sell you the item.

Don't back down and don't be disorderly. You don't want to fight. Just politely inform "them" (manager included) that you are well aware of their policy, and that you would be willing to wait while they lookup the information in their employee handbook.  If they still refuse, you have two options left. You can walk away or call corporate.

(615) 855-4000 (Mon-Fri 8-5 pm EST) 

Yes, since they're only open Monday through Friday, this would be the ideal  time to do your penny shopping.

Of course you can always reach Dollar General representatives outside of those hours, but you may or may not receive a good result.
