    Dollar General Bleach question

    This was in the weekly ad. uploadfromtaptalk1462106002269.jpg

    I am not currently at DG and the MSDS sheet on DGs website has a UPC number, so I'm not sure I'm looking at the correct one. http://dollargeneral.online-msds.com

    Does anyone have any experience using DG bleach or have this bottle at home and can look up the UPC or percentage for me? If it is good quality bleach, this would be a good deal when combined with the $2 of $10 coupons they send via email and text messages.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yea, I think this is original strength, not the the 8.25% I used all last summer with those coupons

    Re: Dollar General Bleach question

    Thanks for all the input. I didn't have any hopes that it would be the 8.25% at that price. I will check when I'm there tomorrow though. Thanks!

    Re: Dollar General Bleach question

    Today's price is about 2.25 per gallon for the good stuff when combined with the 2 off 10 coupon and sale price.

    Re: Dollar General Bleach question

    I bought 10 Saturday ($5 off $25 purchase) and 3 more today ($2 off $10 purchase).

    The store I went to Saturday is not as well managed as the store I was in today. There was no sale tag up...so while it was a pleasant surprise I had angry people behind me because it took them a few min to figure out why my $5 coupon wouldn't work.

    Coupon of $5 off $25 is next week as well...and happens many Saturdays. I was going to post the same thing. Thank you!

    Yea, of course I missed the 5 of 25 last weekend! And you know they are going to bump it up to 5 off 30 the more you shop.

    Re: Dollar General Bleach question

    No mention of manufacturing date...do you have the code?

    The best deal I have locally is $ 2.88 at Fred Meyer, but I'd be down for dollar general if it's fresh.

    Dollar General Bleach question

    I do business with dollar general in my line of work, I've visited them in 42 states. The bleach is fresh, it's a commodity. Per linear foot it moves as fast as anything in the store.

    Re: Dollar General Bleach question

    The store I went to today is fairly new and has only been open a short time. Based on the test results from the bleach I got at a different store on Saturday, it was at least 8.25%. I can look up the code for you if you would like? May be good reference for the future. I saw a post on here once about Clorox codes but didn't know if it translated to store brands.
