In today’s busy world, who has time to sit down and clip coupons? Most of us don’t get a newspaper with paper coupons anymore, and it can feel like there’s an overwhelming number of digital coupons out there, most of which are for things we’ll never need. Wouldn’t it be great if there was some technology that could automatically tell us if there were coupons available for the things we need to buy at the store?
If you can relate to this sentiment, then you should check out the scanning feature in the Family Dollar mobile app!
We’ve discussed the cool features of the Family Dollar app before, from its wide selection of digital coupons to the SmartSpins game where you can spin slots and win a special coupon after you make a purchase. But the scanning feature may be the best part of the Family Dollar app yet.
Here’s how it works. While you’re gathering the items on your shopping list, take out your phone, open the Family Dollar app, and tap the barcode-shaped button in the top-right menu. Hold your phone up to the barcode on the back of the item you need to buy, and the app will instantly tell you if there’s a store coupon available for that item!
If there is a coupon available, just tap “Clip Coupon”, and it’ll be in your Clipped Coupons when you check out!
Of course, there isn’t always a coupon for one particular brand, but nothing will stop you from scanning all the alternative brands to see if there’s a great coupon available that could save you money on a comparable product.
When you check out, just be sure to enter your phone number in the credit card terminal to apply your digital coupons. As a bonus, you’ll get to play the SmartSpins game after you check out!
The Family Dollar scanning feature eliminates the need to worry about coupon expiration dates and whether or not you’re buying the right size or type of product to qualify for a given coupon. All you need to do is scan the exact item you’re intending to buy, and the app will instantly tell you if there’s a digital coupon available for that thing you need. It doesn’t get much more convenient than that! Give it a try the next time you visit your local Family Dollar and let us know how it works for you!
