Does Dollar General Take Checks?

Dollar General takes checks for payment of store goods, a corporate customer service representative told us. We also contacted several Dollar General stores to confirm this information.

That means you can bring your personal or business checkbook with you and write out a check for the exact amount of the total purchase. (The store doesn’t give cash back for purchases made with checks, although you can get cash back with a debit card purchase.)

Remember to bring your valid state-issued driver’s license or a government-issued photo ID. You won’t be able to pay by check without showing your ID.

Dollar General uses Certegy as a check authorization provider. If your check was declined at Dollar General, you can contact Certegy at (866) 407-6946 to find out more.
