A DOLLAR Tree expert has dished out the dirt on how to bargain branded goods — if you are NOT buying them at the discount store.
Customers often think they are getting a bargain at the budget shop, but may end up paying more than they should.
Shoppers at the prestigious retailer have been warned to be careful about what they pick up as they whiz down the aisles.
Although you might think you’ve saved some money, you could spend more on your favorite brands.
That’s because certain labels aren’t as cheap as you might think.
Michael Bonebright, former managing editor at DealNews.com, has revealed that grocery stores typically have better deals than Dollar Tree.
He explained: “Dollar stores usually offer branded items, but in smaller quantities than the grocery store.
“That means you can end up overpaying per ounce or per count.
“For example, Dollar General offers a 22-ounce bottle of Lysol all-purpose cleaner for $2, but Walmart has a 32-ounce bottle of the same product for just pennies more.”
So to get more bang for your buck, it’s best to check the tags and the sizing of the item to make sure you’re getting the best deal.
