1) What is a Subscription?
Subscription is the most convenient way to get products when you need them. When you checkout with Subscription, we automatically send you your items based on the frequency you select. The program is easy to use and customizable and you can make changes online whenever you need. With each recurring order, you save 5% off the regular retail price and receive free shipping on recurring orders over $25!
You always have complete control over your Subscription orders. You can change your delivery frequency, next order date, or quantity anytime by visiting ‘Subscription' located within the My Account section of dollargeneral.com. Changes to orders can be made anytime within 24 hours of the next scheduled shipment date and you can cancel at any time.

Making a Subscription account is easy; it can be done while browsing on the product page or while reviewing items in the shopping cart. To join, simply select the Subscription option for your desired products, select your preferred shipment frequency, and checkout as normal.
3) What will happen after I create a Subscription account?
After you create a Subscription account, you will receive an email confirming your subscription. This email will include a link to access 'Subscription' where you can manage your future orders and Subscription account information.
We will place your Subscription orders automatically according to your selected frequency and you will only be billed on the day the order is shipped. Prior to each Subscription order, we will send you an email reminder ten days before each order ships.

The 'My Next Order' tab shows the details for your next scheduled order. An order may contain more than one individual item scheduled for Subscription if the items have the same order date and shipping address, billing address, and payment information.
The 'My Subscriptions' tab displays individual Subscription items and all associated details for that individual subscription including next order date, delivery frequency, quantity and shipping address information. Individual Subscription items can all have different account information or you can make the account information the same for all Subscription items you receive.
