Last week I shopped at Family Dollar for my first time in about 6 years. You might be wondering why, it’s just that I don’t have a Family Dollar conveniently located near me so when I was contacted by Family Dollar and asked to use a gift card to head shopping, I jumped on the opportunity to do so!
If you haven’t shopped at Family Dollar before (or if it’s been awhile) I want to point out a few things:
- Family Dollar is a Dollar Store but things are not only $1.00 like you would find at Dollar Tree (I’ll explain later)
- You can use Manufacturer Coupons and Family Dollar coupons for double the savings
- Family Dollar has name brand items.
Now that I got the basics out of the way, I want to talk about what I found on my shopping adventure. Upon browsing, I was able to find several items that would be gift worthy this holiday season. My favorite of all, were the toys. Right now Family Dollar is offering Buy One, Get One 50% off all toys. For items that are name brand, this is awesome. Here are a few of my favorite finds:
As you can see, they have a really great selection of toy deals and it’s killer that you can get Buy One, Get One 50% off on all of them! I was scanning items in-store using my Amazon Product Finder App and many of the toys at Family Dollar were actually cheaper which makes my wallet and I happy!
This brings me back to the point I was trying to make earlier, Family Dollar is a Dollar Store but they offer items that are higher in quality such as these name brand toys and that is why not everything is a dollar. Some items seemed to be priced higher than other competitors such as hair and beauty products but for the most part they offer very competitive prices. They are also one of the only dollar stores in Utah that allows stacking of store and manufacturer coupons which can help the overall cost and is something I surely appreciate!
In addition to the great toy deals, I also found that their Holiday Decor, Wrapping paper, and even stocking stuffers were also Buy One, Get One 50% off. Here are some items I found:
At Family Dollar you can get Christmas trees for less than $35.00 and holiday décor and wrapping materials for under $15.00 which means decorating for the holiday is inexpensive and a breeze. In addition to these already low prices and the BOGO promotion, Family Dollar is offering Daily Deals on a variety of items throughout the holidays. Shoppers can view these deals on Facebook and Twitter daily. For more information, you can visit www.familydollar.com/DailyDeals.
From my shopping trip I can conclude that many of their items are great especially with the current promotion they have going on for the BOGO deal. Be sure you head to your local Family Dollar and check out what they have to offer. Before you do, be sure to check out their Printable Coupons Section so you don’t miss out on any additional savings. They also frequently offer $5 off $25 purchase coupons which can really help you save!
So have you visited Family Dollar Lately? What sort of awesome deals did you find?
