Walmart Coupon Policy Changes

Walmart has updated their coupon policy which is wonderful since they are now allowing overage on coupons!  Many shoppers regularly have issues with Walmart cashiers accepting or understanding how to apply coupons so I strongly encourage you to print the policy and to keep it with you (easy to add to a coupon binder) and to take it when you go.  Here are the 2 main changes:

  • Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase.
  • Walmart Does NOT accept: Competitors’ coupons for dollars/cents or percentage off, buy one get one free, and double- or triple-value coupons. This means no to Target coupons but yes to Fred Meyer.

Walmart Coupon Policy Question

We recieved this email from a reader (we get these every few weeks with the exact same question):

Hey Ladies,

I have a quick coupon question for you–I used a printed coupon the other day at Walmart (printed from my home computer),
the lady working there “honored” it as a “one time” favor, telling me that Walmart does not accept “printed from home” coupons.

Is that correct?

Answer:  No! That is not correct.  Honestly, Walmart makes me crazy.  How can a company so completely fail to train their employees and still function and make money?  Here is their coupon policy from their website:

Walmart Coupon Policy

Walmart accepts the following types of coupons (see guidelines below):

* Manufacturer coupons (Cents Off)

* Free merchandise (or manufacturer’s Buy-One-Get-One-Free) coupons

* Store coupons

* Pharmacy (Advertising and Promotional) coupons

* Internet coupons

* Soft drink container caps

The following are guidelines and limits:

* Walmart only accepts coupons for merchandise we sell and only when presented at the time of purchase.

* Coupons should have an expiration date and be presented within the valid dates. Walmart will not accept expired coupons.

* Internet coupons should be legible and say “Manufacturer Coupon.” There should be a valid remit address for the manufacturer and a scannable bar code.

* Only one coupon per item is permitted.

* Use of 40 or more coupons per transaction will require approval by Customer Service Manager

Be sure to keep this with you when shopping at Walmart! Print it off and keep it with your coupons and hopefully it will save you a headache.
