Family Dollar Cash-Back Policy

Family Dollar discount stores offer cash back on debit card purchases, but there are restrictions and fees. Cash-back options are limited to $10, $25, or $50, and the fee structure for cash back is as follows:[1]

  • $1 for $10
  • $1.25 for $25
  • $1.50 for $50

Most stores that offer cash back do not charge a fee for the service, though some may have minimum purchase requirements. However, note that Family Dollar’s cash-back fee is still lower than the average out-of-network ATM fee; these fees have reached about $4 to $5 in recent years.[2]

To get cash back at Family Dollar, simply swipe or insert your debit card in the point-of-sale system and select the cash-back option on the screen (or request it from the cashier if the option does not appear).
