App Reviews

  • The new update is garbage

    By BeezusMcgeezus
    People have been relentlessly asking for a “clip all” button for your digital coupons. Evidently complaining in the store surveys does nothing so maybe here will work. The new update is slow and glitchy and has made clipping EVEN FREAKING SLOWER and still doesn’t have a clip all button. Trash. Family Dollar is run way better. Right now it says that I have $6 in coupons to clip. However, when I go to clip, it shows none. It loads slow, it constantly glitches out and says try again later. It’s awful and I’m considering taking my business elsewhere where the digital coupons actually work. Like Family Dollar. The entire company is becoming garbage. They don’t respond to complaint emails. They don’t respond to complaints sent through the surveys on the receipts. They don’t respond to the “contact us” on their website, and they don’t respond to phone calls to corporate. This app sent me 36 NOTIFICATIONS IN 20 MINUTES all saying the same thing. I had to file criminal harassment charges on one of their store manager’s because of an incident in one of their stores and STILL no district manager or anyone from corporate will contact me. And yes, I would like to clip all the coupons available because sometimes there are coupons that I didn’t know were there and I get a surprise at the register with an extra coupon discount. Everyone I know with the app, clips all. However, even a clip all for each category would be better than nothing.
  • Badly in need of attention

    By Swolfmoon
    I shop at both DG and Family Dollar, and today I was in my local DG and saw that there was an app for digital coupons, and I had already been using for Family Dollar on their app, so I was pleased and went about downloading it, which took a little while due to us being out in the boonies, but I ended up waisting almost an hour trying to set the darn thing up with my information. I must’ve put my details in at least 15 times, but whenever I tried to get it to accept the verification number, it would think for a moment and then come back with a error message saying that it couldn’t be completed. It said “please try again”. I honestly began to wonder if it was some kind of test to see how many times I would try again before giving up. Tried the other ways in app to register but to no avail. I am posting this so that hopefully somebody that works for them can get in there and fix it, because I am saving money at Family Dollar with their app and I am hoping to do the same at DG sometime soon!
  • Could use some changes

    By ripzite
    I like this app because it helps me plan my shopping trips to Dollar General. However, I have a couple of suggestions to make it better. 1) Add the shopping list to the app. When I’m in the store I’m constantly switching back and forth between the shopping list I created online and the app with my list of coupons. 2) Allow me to put items on my shopping list from the weekly ad. Right now I’m only able to view the items which isn’t very helpful. 3) Allow me to remove coupons that I have added. Sometimes I add them accidentally or I change my mind and then when I’m in store it’s annoying to have those coupons in my list. 4) Merge the coupon list with the shopping list. It would be nice to have one shopping list that has items I’ve added from the weekly ad AND the coupons I’ve added. This app has the potential to be pretty helpful for DG shoppers!
  • 😍😍😍

    By lilkentuckymama
    I love this app, with all the diff coupons and diff items to use them on I’ve been able to get all the detergent items that I cannot usually afford. And believe it or not I am able to stock up on Downy, Tide, Unstoppables and more! The only thing I have against it is it’s the little containers and they don’t have good coupons on the big ones. Dropping $1.95 on 3 diff types of detergent and being able to try them out and pick which is best for my family is great. No complaints there it’s just I’d like to be able to save on the big ones too for the weeks I’m not able to afford anything. But anyways it’s a great app and great chance to try new things without breaking yourself up paying all that money for items that u can’t use.
  • Needs a little work

    By Daelynpearson
    I’ve had this app for about 2 months now. I really only downloaded it for the digital coupons which are great by the way. I think a really good feature that would upgrade this app would be a price scanner. Almost every Store app has one. Many times items don’t have prices on them or even on the shelves. When I’m shopping and I want to price check I have to go up to the register and it’s always a big deal for them because the manager has to void the transaction (at least that’s what they tell me). It’s very frustrating to the point where I make blank trips because I don’t want to make a big scene at the register constantly taking this off. I would love a reply from you guys. The scanner would be great honestly.
  • Don't waist your time

    By Telena House
    It hardly loads when you are tryin to redeem your coupons and if it does load it does not give u credit for hardly any of your selected coupons. Iv been soo embarrassed too many times by this app when time to check out on a budget. Out of 22 coupons it only redeem 1 today. People use coupons to save money not be humiliated in the process of checking out. I'm done with this app, deleting it soon as I hit post. Not to mention the cashiers at every dollar general Iv been to acts like your a bother when using your digital coupons. Also the only way it would submit my review is if I gave it 5 stars...
  • Irritating

    By Asystimatic
    3 times now the app has froze up when I clicked on an item to read it better. 2 times I had to delete it and start over. This time it wouldn’t log me in. Changed password and it accepted my new password but when I logged in it tells me that it can’t log me in and try later. I was apprehensive about downloading the app in the first place because of all the negative reviews. That was quite awhile back and it still isn’t any better despite all the bug fixes. Seriously, you ought to find a new developer. If it’s been this bad this long I believe I would start over with someone else. It’s not really rocket science and surely someone else could do a better job. Your company is getting taken to the cleaners and you don’t seem to care. With this many complaints I believe I would be moving heaven and earth to get it right.
  • Buggy

    By Malpedro
    They definitely have some bugs to work out. There have been times while trying to shop at DG that their app just won’t load which is frustrating. Then starting today it will not load and the notification for $5 off of $25 keeps coming up on my phone repeatedly. Very irritating to say the least. I’m not sure why it is doing this as there is no update to currently fix it. At this point I can’t even use the app and must open a browser on my phone to look at digital coupons. Someone also needs to look into updating the cash registers. A couple months ago I had to wait for an HOUR to check out because the system went down everywhere and I had to wait so I could use that special Saturday coupon as well as my other digital coupons. Get it together DG. You’re better than this.
  • Unresponsive App

    By Alphawolf49
    The application is so unresponsive that I can not even scroll to the bottom of the new terms to check the box and continue so I can have access to the app. Even when I had access to the app the app would be responsive for 20 seconds and then would freeze up causing me to have to force quit and try to relaunch. This app has never worked properly for me, on top of it all I have went several times to the store, had my digital coupons and they only work half the time, even if I show the worker at the store the coupon and that it should be working they just say I don’t know it’s weird and they don’t do anything about it. This store and app has gotten so bad recently and is on a steady decline as my wife and I are talking about finding another store that cares about their customers and their satisfaction.
  • Coupons printed out

    By Girl who wants more stuff
    The coupons that are printed in store are for future days and not for the same day usually they will only work on the next Saturday. That manager most likely did not know how to read the fine print on the coupon explaining it was for another day. Also this app is terrible on any other device than apple! Sadly as I work there many customers have questions about our app which does not work for most. But i use this app pretty often as I am there often I do like it but u can’t look items up in app as it will direct u to safari.
