There are certain things you should never do.

You should never call your ex after midnight. You should never go to the beach without sunscreen. You should never wire money to a “prince.” You should never hit “send” when you’re angry.

Also: You should never drive by Dollar General on a Saturday without stopping.

(Um, you do shop at Dollar General, right? Because if you don’t, you’re missing out on some serious savings. The 16,000-store chain isn’t just a dollar store. It actually stocks tons of name-brand household goods, priced cheaper than anywhere else.)

So why Saturday? Because that’s the day you can take advantage of the store’s $5 off $25 deal.

Here’s How to Knock $5 Off Your $25 Purchase (on Anything!)

Five bucks off of already low prices? That’s right.

Here’s how it works: Just download the Dollar General App and sign up for a DG Digital Coupons account.

Once you’re in the app, you can claim an extra $5 off $25 coupon that you can use on Saturdays. It renews each week. You can literally buy anything you want. As long as you add the coupon to your account every week, spend $25 on Saturday, and enter your phone number at checkout, you’ll get $5 off.


Plus, through the app, you’ll gain access to hundreds of dollars’ worth of coupons, which you can easily click to add to your account.

Need Tide laundry detergent? Crest toothpaste? Huggies diapers? When we checked, they all had coupons.

Once you sign up and “clip” all your coupons in the app, just enter your phone number at checkout, and these deals will be automatically applied to your total.

So, to sum up: Add this to the list of things that you should definitely do.

You should stay hydrated. You should trust your gut. You should use your turn signal. You should call your Mom.

And you should swing by Dollar General on Saturdays.
