It wasn’t until quite recently that I learned that Dollar General sells all the big brands you love at a great value! This is especially true for many pet care brands, including Pedigree® and Temptations® from MARS® Petcare Products.  It’s always nice to be able to save money on household costs, and being able to give back to others in the community is a huge bonus.  Dollar General is currently having a promotion where if you buy $10 worth of MARS® Petcare products at Dollar General  you will receive a coupon for a FREE book! *Participating Bendon Publishing books only, must be redeemed at Dollar General

When a shopper redeems their coupon for the FREE book, MARS® Petcare will donate $1 to the Dollar General Literacy Foundation to support Dollar General’s literacy initiatives.  So you buy petcare products that are at a savings from other stores, YOU get a free book, and  you’ll be able to give back to support literacy initiatives.  That’s a win for everyone.  Plus, at Dollar General, you are about to use manufacturer’s coupons to get an even bigger bang for your buck.

If you don’t have a pet in your home that eats eats Pedigree® or Temptations®, there are always animals in shelters or foster homes that could use some more food.  I know there is a trend (that I LOVE) with my daughter’s 2nd grade classmates to ask for donations for food banks and animal shelters in lieu of gifts- this means we can make that money stretch further with the lower price at Dollar General plus a manufacturer coupon…and then we also can get that free book and ensure that those literacy initiatives are supported.  That’s a win for many groups and many reasons- and you can do for others!

  • As an educator I love any program that gets more book into the hands of children!

  • Literacy FTW! lol…I was a Lit major, so yeah…I dig books. :) Lots and lots of books! And anything that promotes reading. This is a great program!

  • I love anything that promotes literacy! There isn’t nearly enough reading going on with kids!!

  • I haven’t tried Dollar General for pet products…I keep hearing a lot about what this store has to offer…guess I’d better check it out!

  • I think this is such a great incentive. And I agree with helping the animal shelters in lieu of gifts. :)

  • What a great cause and good food for my pup! Thanks for sharing!

  • I get the Dollar General flier all the time in the mail and need to make it out there sometime. It sounds like they have some great savings and I love that buying pet food promotes literacy through them as well. What a great idea!

  • What in the world? I had no idea! There’s a Dollar General right in our little town that I have yet to visit and with three dogs in this house, I will have to check it out and send my mom there to get the dog food from now on! As for the free book, that’s where you hooked me! We’re huge readers in this house!

  • What an awesome promo! I always love getting free books!

  • What an amazing idea. I’ve seen coupons for free items. I’ve seen buy this item and $ gets donated. But Ive never seen them both TOGETHER! Amazing!
