I’m a huge fan of dollar general nashville, tn. But my favorite item on the store’s website is also the most surprising one. I was in the store this weekend to get a pair of cotton shorts for my husband. On the checkout aisle, I noticed a small sign that said “Gift Certificates” in a font that I had never seen before.
The Gift Certificates are a program that allows you to purchase items you’ve already purchased online. These certificates are linked to your credit card, so you don’t even need to enter a credit card number into the checkout page (like you would if you were buying something with Cash on Delivery). The gift certificates can be redeemed at most DollarGeneral stores nationwide.
I’m not sure why someone would bother to buy a $2.99 gift certificate for $5.83. It’s not like they’d get anything else for that. You could always just use your credit card and buy an extra $0.98 worth of groceries.
It looks like Dollar General sells a bunch of these gift certificates, but I have no idea what they are. I was told they were something called the “Dollar General Gift Card” and they were about $1.50 each. I was also told they were an EZ Card, so they can be used to buy stuff online, and they are only good for six months. I wasn’t able to find any info on them though.
What do you get for that $.98? I don’t know about you, but I’m always willing to spend a little more for something like that. After all, it’s an EZ, and it’s a gift card.
The Dollar General gift cards and EZ cards are the two main ways EZ cards (and gift cards) are accepted at Dollar General stores. The other way they are accepted is by having a gift card and then handing over cash. Dollar General also has a $4,000 credit card credit line, but this is only good for one purchase at a time. Dollar General also offers a $50 bonus for buying one of the Dollar General Gift Cards or an EZ Card.
While I don’t recommend using gift cards or EZ cards for purchases you wouldn’t normally be comfortable with, if you’re shopping at Dollar General, you definitely should try it. Dollar General’s gift cards and EZ cards are often the best way to go. With the credit card card lines, you can get up to $25 free when you first register a gift card or EZ card.
If you use a gift card for cash, your cash will be deposited into your account, but it will not be counted towards your credit limit. With a card for EZ, your balance will be converted into EZ and added to your account, which is also good to know. If you have an Amazon Gift Card, you can have it automatically converted when you order something.
The $50 credit is good for two purchases each year. You can also buy a $50 card for $75.
The cash limit for a $50 Amazon gift card or $25 Amazon EZ card is $50. That’s a lot of cash to get for a gift card, but $50 is also a lot of cash to get for EZ. So it’s pretty much the same deal.
