Walmart Updated Coupon Policy! {Good News!}

Updated Walmart Coupon Policy is some good news for us “couponers” because it clearly states a Few Good points:

  1. That Walmart DOES take Internet Coupons
  2. That “overage”-{ when a coupon is taking off more than the item cost} can go towards your other items!
  3. Competitor Coupons for a specific price {more like a “price match”}
  4. Catalina Coupons!

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

  • Manufacturers’ coupons
  • Print-at-home internet coupons
    • Must be legible, have “Manufacturer Coupon” printed on them, have a valid remit address for the manufacturer, valid expiration date, and have a scannable bar code.
  • Competitors’ coupons that feature a specific item for a specified price
    • for example, $2.99
  • Soft drink container caps
  • Checkout coupons
    • (also called “Catalinas”) that are printed at our competitors’ registers, have “Manufacturer Coupon” with specific requirements printed on them, a valid remit address for the manufacturer, valid expiration date, and a scannable bar code.

  • Print-at-home Internet coupons that require no purchase

  1. Hi great news, shame about the 1 coupon per item, I suppose I’ll just have to buy more.

    Here is a suggestion for everyone:

    Since Walmart has updated the coupon policy, I encourage everyone to Email, Fax and even call Walmart CEO on complimenting the change on policy. Also, please share your horrible experience with Michael Duke. Ask him for his advice on making your future shopping experience smooth as possible avoiding past experience of you and others. Lastly, share this thread, other thread and blogs.

  3. I just recently went to Walmart with a coupon for Tide and expected a dollar overage and was told that they no longer do that. Do I have to get a manager involved and all that jazz to get the overage? Or has there been a change since this post was written??
