Dollar General and Paypal?

Posted by on Nov. 25, 2012 at 3:16 PM

Yesterday while at our local Dollar General I noticed a small sign at the register that they now take Paypal debit cards!  This is a positive for me, since I plan on getting cash for my Swagbucks points sent to my Paypal account.

Yay!

Has anyone else noticed this?

Yes but I didn't think you even needed a card, because I randomly pressed the paypal button and it asked for some information. It was weird, I didn't complete the transaction but I was definitely interested.

I knew they took Paypal for online orders, this was the first I'd seen it in the store, though.

Yes I think the lady told me it was a brand new thing. I was fascinated, especially since I get paid through paypal lol. I'm not finding any info online. I might mozy on over there later just to see, lol. I took NON drowsy allergy meds today :P

I've had my paypal card for some number of years now and have never had a problem using it as a debit card at any Dollar General store. Is this something new in certain areas that are taking Paypal cards now?
