How to Find Penny Items at Dollar General
Penny Shopping at Dollar General can be a lot of fun. Part of that fun is the hunt for the deal. Keep in mind that Penny Items are supposed to be removed from the selling floor so you need to be prepared in order to be successful when shopping for Penny Items. We’ve got some great tips and tools to help.
Get the Weekly Penny List
Each week, usually on Friday, Dollar General sends their stores a list of the items that will “penny” the following Tuesday. It would be great if they would hand out the list as you walk in the door but that just doesn’t happen. Luckily How to Shop for FREE is able to get our hands on the list just for you!
We post a PENNY LIST for you including UPC codes every week (usually on Friday). We also post a list of PENNY VISUALS with pictures of all the items that you can use as a reference. Sometimes it’s easier to find if you have a visual of exactly what you’re looking for.
Download the DG App
Now that you’re in the store and spy some penny items you want to verify the items using the DG App. One of the great features of the DG App is the ability to scan items while you are in the store to check the price. This works great for general price checking or to see if a digital coupon is attaching to an item you are purchasing. It’s also a great way to see if you’ve scored some penny items.
When you are in the store or when you are just outside the store go into the wifi settings on your phone and select “DG-Customer” wifi. This will ensure that you have service in the store. No worries though if you can’t get into the DG App for any reason. The Penny List that we post each week has the UPC codes so you can use that for reference.

In addition to posting the Penny List at HowtoShopforFREE.net we also post it in the Dollar General FREEBIES and Deals Facebook Group. It’s a great place for members to share their own penny finds and to ask questions in order to fine tune your Penny Shopping skills. The Members and Admins in the group are very active and helpful.
Know Where to Look
Everyone is going to be looking in the item’s “home” location on the shelf and in the store’s clearance location. Don’t forget about those locations that the store might miss. The best Penny Hauls can often be found on end caps or in those cardboard displays around the store….and don’t forget to look up on the overstock shelves!

Dollar General allows overage that you can use towards other items in your cart. Be sure to have something to absorb the overage because Dollar General does not give cash back.
