The Facebook post claims Dollar General is giving away free $150 coupons” to celebrate their anniversary. The coupons supposedly can be obtained by liking and sharing the Facebook post.
Dollar General said the coupon is not valid and is not redeemable. The company says they are encouraging people not to click on any of the links and report the coupon to Facebook as misleading and fraudulent.
To get the coupon, you have to click on a link and then you are asked a series of questions.
“We encourage our customers not to click on any links associated with the coupon and to report the coupon to Facebook as misleading and fraudulent,” a representative with the company said.
The scam is similar to “lifetime passes” and free products supposedly offered by companies that are also bogus.
