Cashback is a service offered by many major retail brands, which can sometimes really help us when we’re in desperate need of a little extra cash! Nowadays, it’s the stores that don’t provide cashback service that is considered old-fashioned and out of touch.
Family Dollar is one of many discount stores across the United States that kindly offer this service to customers. In this article, we will take a look at the cashback limit, and whether or not it includes fees and other important information. Let’s check it out!
What is the cashback limit?
The cash-back limit at Family Dollar is $50 per debit card transaction, however, this varies from store to store. The minimum you can withdraw is $10 and you can withdraw up to $50 in $10 increments.
Is there a fee?
Family Dollar charges customers a $1 fee for cash back. In some stores, charges vary slightly but never exceed $2. The fee often looks something like this:
$10 – $1 fee
$25 – $1.25 fee
$50 – $1.50 fee
In fact, many retail brands charge a small fee for cashback. However, this is usually less than the charge for withdrawing from banks or ATMs. Take a look below to see which stores charge different fees.
Dollar General charges between $1 and $2 per transaction, depending on the store you visit.
Like Family Dollar, Dollar Tree charges $1 for each cashback withdrawal.
The fee at Kroger is only $0.50 per transaction.
Walmart wins the competition because there is no charge to earn cash back (unless certain credit cards are used).
Can you earn cash back when using Family Dollar coupons?
No, you cannot get cashback by using coupons. Similarly, you cannot exchange them for cash either. For example, if you have a $3 coupon, you can’t buy a $2 item and expect $1 back. And yes, people have tried to do this before!
Does Family Dollar have ATMs?
Some, but not all stores provide ATM service. Family Dollar stores in larger cities are more likely to have in-store ATMs.
So, why would you need to use an ATM if you can get cashback? Well, some banks offer cashback on ATM fees, so it may cost less to withdraw from a cash machine than to use a cashback service. After all, why should you be accused of withdrawing your hard-earned money?
It’s always good to know you can withdraw cash in-store, especially if you’re on a budget that’s easy to skip when paying with a debit or credit card. Don’t hesitate to contact your local store to find out.
Can you get cash back on a check?
Unfortunately, Family Dollar does not allow customers to withdraw cashback by check. However, stores that offer this service only allow customers to withdraw $20, which is the usual amount. The rationale behind this is to prevent fraudulent activities.
However, you can pay for items using a check. As long as you have some form of official ids, such as a valid driver’s license or passport, you’re good to go! Cashiers also perform further checks using a verification system.
Alternative payment methods
As with most discount stores these days, Family Dollar accepts a wide range of payment methods that have always been well-received by customers. Take a look at the list below to see the different ways you can pay for items:
- Personal check
- Debit Card
- Credit Card
- PayPal (website only)
Can I get a cash refund on Family Dollar?
Customers can expect a cash refund if the item being returned is unused and in the original packaging with the original receipt.
If you have misplaced the original receipt, the store manager may offer to exchange it for something else at the same price. However, this is often at the discretion of the manager and is not something that all stores offer.
A good rule of thumb is to always keep your receipts in a safe place until you are 100% happy with your item.
Family Dollar provides a cashback service for customers with a limit of $50 per transaction. There is a small fee to pay depending on how much you choose to withdraw, however, this can be said of many reputable retail companies. We hope this article has given you enough information about how the cash-back system at Dollar General works. And if you ever need an extra $10 for a ride home, you’ll know where to get it.
