NEW Walmart Coupon Policy

March 6, 2011

Most of you know that this is not my favorite store, but from time to time I have no choice but to run in there to grab something.  I do have to admit that I am a little excited about this “new” coupon policy that Walmart has released.  I advise carrying a copy of this with you, because Walmart tends to not train their cashiers on new policies. (Keep in mind, it’s not the cashiers fault that they don’t receive the correct training!)  Here’s a link to get the full policy:

A few things to highlight:

Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase. (This means that if you buy a bottle of shampoo that is priced at $1.50 and you have a $2 off coupon you will receive the 50 cents back or it can go towards other purchases in the same transaction.)

Competitors’ coupons that feature a specific item for a specified price; for example, $2.99 (You will find many of these types of coupons in Walgreen ads.)

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.  (So if you are like me and find these being turned down at Walmart, pull the policy out!)

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.   (This is AWESOME, because now you can use those Catalinas that you get from Walgreens, Kroger, etc at Walmart!)

Make sure to read the entire policy here: and print it out!
