$5 off $25 Purchase at Family Dollar all Week

Check out our NEW website,! We are having a sale on all zebra style binders, 
too plus FREE shipping!

I love shopping at Family Dollar, especially when they give out the $5 off $25 purchase coupons. They do this about once a month and it's back!

The coupon can be found on their website here and printed for you to take into the store to redeem. It was also in yesterday's Sunday newspaper on the front page of the Family Dollar store flyer. To my knowledge, it will not be found inside of the store in the store flyer, so you have to already have it before you go into the store.

Family Dollar accepts all manufacturer's coupons and on their website you can also find Family Dollar store coupons that you could stack with the manufactuer's coupons PLUS use the $5 off $25. 

Family Dollar runs some excellent specials each week and I find that I can come out really well by using their sales, plus coupons plus the $5 off $25. They do an item of the week special each week and this week's deal is Hershey's Jumbo Mix Candy Bag 17.31 oz or Mars Fun Size Mix Candy Bag 19.55 oz. for only $4. 

I plan to use the $5 off $25 and buy LUVS diapers. Here's the deal:
LUVS Diapers Jumbo Packs are on sale 2 for $14.

I will buy 4 packs for $28

I will use 2 coupons from yesterday's Sunday paper for $1 off 2 packs of diapers for a total of $2 off.

I will then use the $5 off $25 coupon

$28-$2-$5= $21 plus tax for four packs of diapers ($5.25 each)

I like to figure out the cost per diaper. This varies depending on what size you buy (for example, newborn Jumbo packs have more diapers than size 4 or 5) but since I'm buying size four we'll go with that. 31 diapers come in size four, so I'm getting a total of 124 LUVS diapers for $21. That comes out to 16.9 cents per diaper. That's a pretty good price. I've done better, but it's certainly a deal worth getting. In comparison, Sam's Club sells the same size LUVS for 17 cents per diaper, so basically you're getting a Sam's Club price without paying for a membership and without having to buy so many at a time. 

At Walmart, size four LUVS with 31 in a pack cost 21 cents per diaper, compared to the 16 cents at Family Dollar by using coupons.

As you can see, it pays to use coupons!

*Note- you may want to see if your Walmart will accept the $5 off $25 coupons from Family Dollar. Their policy states that they take competitor's coupons, so it should work.
