Once you’re at the register with any penny items, they have to sell it to you! When you’re hunting for penny items, look for a colored dot and specific code listed under the barcode. Make sure you understand the code so you can see which items are penny deals. Here are some examples of past codes: SP (Spring), SU (Summer), FA (Fall), WI (Winter); and 11 (2011), 12 (2012), 13 (2013), and 14 (2014). A penny item code would look like “SU12.” Penny items aren’t located in a specific area, so you’ll have to hunt for them. Codes and dot symbols will vary on products, so take your time searching through products to determine which are penny deals. Once you understand the pattern and codes, finding penny items at Dollar General will be super easy and fun!
