Verify: Is this Dollar General coupon the real deal?

It appears to be a coupon for Dollar General worth $150.00, and it's making the rounds online and looks fairly legitimate.

TEMPLE, Tx — It appears to be a coupon for Dollar General worth $150.00, and it's making the rounds online and looks fairly legitimate.

The coupon claims, all you need to do is like share and comment. Seems too good to be true right?

The coupon is supposedly being offered as part of an 80th-anniversary celebration, but here's the thing - it's a scam and a well-known one at that.

"Anniversary free product scams" are a mainstay on social media, and can tempt people with huge bargains and cash offers. This one is a fake. The company has since confirmed the coupon is not valid and cannot be redeemed.

So we hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we can go ahead and Verify you won't be getting 150 bucks to spend at dollar general anytime soon.
