Remember the old dollar store in your neighborhood?
They used to be plentiful, and you could get nearly anything for a dollar or less.
You’ll be glad to know that we’ve entered the era of the online dollar store – where everything still costs less than a dollar, and some sites even offer free shipping on orders above a certain amount.

If you like getting paid for surveys, and are going to join only one site, I would recommend you choose Ipsos-iSay. Ipsos is the most fun and well-paying panel. Give it a try to see how you like it. It is free anyway!
Hollar is a newcomer to the market, only being founded November 2015 – but just because it’s new doesn’t mean it hasn’t become a massive competitor for the rest.
The site has received considerable publicity in the media as the startup invention of David Yeorn.
Though not all of them are strictly “dollar” deals, you can get some great stuff for under five bucks – like a Universal Tablet Stand for $4 or camping gear starting at $2.
Hollar offers free shipping on any offers above $25.

Dollar Fanatic is filled with strictly dollar deals. You can find all sorts of cool things marked down to a dollar along with a ton of, as you’d imagine, novelty items.
For example, they’ve got things like the NFL Team Washingtons Light Up Fan that flashes the team slogan.
Of course, if you’re more practical you can look at things like Jumbo Sidewalk Chalk, an iPhone case or a tripod for your camera – and yes, all of it’s only a dollar!
They offer free shipping and handling on offers above $35.
You can chat with Dollar Fanatic live on the site if you have any questions.
If you browse around for long enough on Dollar Tree Inc., you’ll be sure to find something cool to blow a dollar on.

Again, everything on offer is only a dollar.
Under Food & Pantry, you can buy everything from candy to cereal – even beef jerky!
They seem to make their money by having a minimum quantity on some items, like Jack Link’s Hot Squatch Snack Sticks that go for $1 – but you have to buy a minimum of 40 (i.e. a case).
The huge offering of items still makes it worth checking out.
H&J Closeouts specializes in store closures and liquidation, so you can pick up some great deals here if you’re willing to look around.
Their dollar offers have a separate page.
A quick look delivered items like earbuds, an NFL hologram button pin and various weird, gadgety keychains.
If you’re willing to spend a little more than a dollar on your purchase, you can pick up things like misprinted faux leather journals for $2, LED desk lamps for $12 and a five piece garden tool set for $8.
Everything from this site is priced from $1 to $1.49, and a peek at their list of featured items shows everything from soap to bowls and side-mirrors.
There’s a slight catch: They’ve got a minimum order of ten items.
But still, for the value, it’ll be ten bucks well spent – and it’ll feel like Christmas again when your package of assorted stuff from the dollar store arrives.
DollarStore.com offers a 30-day return policy on their items, so you’re covered if for some reason you’re not happy with the products.
VidAngel crosses a dollar store and the old video rental place.
How? Well, you sign up and get to watch movies for just a dollar.
They’ve got over 2, 000 movies and TV shows to pick from, and while they’ve been the center of some controversy for offering films cheaper than similar options like Netflix (and offering a somewhat too-early screening of Star Wars), they are legit and worth a look.

- Download the VidAngel app for Apple on the App Store.
99 Cents Dollar Store is second last on this list because it’s not quite a strict dollar store. While their items start at a dollar, they can go up – for example, their home screen offers speakers for your iPod at $5.99, crayons at $1.89 and angel ornaments at $0.99.
They offer some things the other sites don’t, like a variety of tools, so here, it really depends what you’re looking for.
