$5/$25 Purchase at Dollar General on 7/14

There are no shortages of Dollar Generals in the St. Clair County area!  And you can SAVE on Saturday, 7/14, with this coupon!

If you haven’t signed up for Dollar General’s digital coupons you can still sign up!  If you already have an account, then be sure to log in and add your coupons to your account!

 And don’t forget, that’s the price you have to spend BEFORE your manufacturer coupons!  So you can bring your total down even more using printable coupons, newspaper coupons and other Dollar General eCoupons.

This has become such a regular occurrence that I keep a running list of items I need or like to get from DG that we’re running low on and make a trip to get them and use my coupon.  It’s great because Dollar General is the closest store to my house!

This is a digital coupon so you have to sign up for their digital coupons but it’s quick and painless!  You’ll use your digital coupons account to activate the coupons you want and then at the checkout in store you’ll enter your phone number on the keypad.  Your digital coupons will be applied!

Don’t forget to check your Ibotta app for rebates you can pick up when you shop! 


Alabama’s 2018 Back to School Tax Free Shopping Weekend July 20-22

Tax Free Back to School Shopping for Alabama will be July 20-22, 2018.  That’s earlier than usual to help you get your shopping done.

What does tax-free weekend shopping mean?

Beginning at 12:01 a.m. (CST) on Friday, July 21, 2017, and ending at twelve midnight on Sunday, July 23, 2017, Alabama will hold its annual sales tax holiday giving shoppers the opportunity to purchase certain school supplies, computers, and clothing free of state sales or use tax.  Local sales and use tax may apply – see list of participating cities and counties.

Retailers in the state are required to not charge state tax on purchases during this weekend.  Also, counties and cities themselves may choose to waive local taxes also.

Here are the local areas participating in the waiving of additional local taxes (some with restrictions listed):





Blount County

Calhoun County



Etowah County




Jefferson County – ONLY applies to Jefferson County’s regular sales and use tax of one percent (1%). Jefferson County DOES NOT GRANT a holiday for the “Education” (7137) sales and use tax of one percent (1%).


Mountain Brook



Oxford – ONLY applies to Oxford’s 4% sales and use tax.  Oxford DOES NOT GRANT a holiday for the remaining 1% levied for education.

Pell City

St. Clair County



Talladega/ Talladega County


These locations are NOT waiving local taxes:  MOODY, Margaret and Ragland.

Looks like the best places to shop will be Pell City, Springville and Odenville since they will be waiving city taxes and are within St. Clair County (which is waiving all but 1%).  Or Leeds or Trussville since they are waving city taxes and Jefferson County is waiving all but 1% of county taxes.  If you shop in Moody, you will pay city taxes, but not state or county.

Items that will be exempt:

Clothing – less than $100 per item restriction (some exclusions apply)

School Supplies – less than $50 per item restriction
includes but not limited too: backpacks, binders, pens, pencils, crayons, markers, paper, calculators, etc.

Books – less than $30 per item restriction (some exclusions apply)

Also included are computers and certain accessories and software.

See the full list here.
