Dollar Tree Raised Prices On More Items. Here’s Everything That’ll Cost You More Now.

For years, many have relied on Dollar Tree’s steadfast promise of $1 deals to stretch their dollars further but recently, Dollar Tree has quietly begun raising prices on several items throughout the store.

In the past week I’ve noticed a handful of items that have increased as much as 150% which can truly put a damper on one’s budget.

So, I’ve gathered the list of everything that will cost you more now at Dollar Tree so you don’t have any surprises at the register.

I remember the days that I could walk into Dollar Tree with a few bucks and walk out with a handful of items but with the recent price increases, that dollar no longer stretches like it used to.

As an avid shopper of Dollar Tree with regular weekly visits, I’ve been sad to find many items increasing anywhere from $0.25-$2.00 in price which is quite the jump.

And if you happen to be on a tight budget, knowing about these price increases before heading to the register can save you time, money and embarrassment.

Gatorade: 20 oz. Gatorades will now cost you $2.25 each. This is actually more expensive than most retailers such as Walmart and Kroger stores so this isn’t a great deal.

Side note: It looks as-if Powerade is still priced at $1.25 each for now.

Celsius Energy Drinks: Celsius energy drinks will now cost $2.50 per can at Dollar Tree. Considering you can get a 12-pack on Amazon and Walmart for less than $1.58 a can, this isn’t a great deal at all.
