Here's the new policy:
Walmart accepts the following types of coupons (see guidelines below):
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
(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.
Walmart does not accept the following coupons:
Print-at-home Internet coupons that require no purchase
Competitors’ coupons for dollars/cents or percentage off, buy one get one free, and double- or triple-value coupons
The following are guidelines and limitations:
Only one coupon per item is permitted.
Coupons must have an expiration date and be redeemed prior to expiration.
Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase.
Walmart only accepts coupons for merchandise that we sell.
Coupons must be presented at the time of purchase.
We accept the following with Customer Service Supervisor/Management approval:
40 or more coupons
Any coupon over $20
$50 or more in coupons in one transaction
So what does all of this mean? Specifically, you can have overage and it will go towards the remainder of your total (YES! That's a good thing!) and they'll accept catalina coupons from stores like Walgreens, Winn Dixie and Target even though it may have another stores logo. The only bad thing is that that still will not accept Register Rewards (even though they fall into the the catalina category).
If you plan on heading to Walmart I have two suggestions 1) Call me so I can pray for you! 2) go here and print out the policy and take it with you. I can almost 100% guarantee that the cashiers and possibly managers too, will have no clue how to handle the new policy.
Remember if it doesn't work, DON'T GET MAD! Just put it down and walk away. Anger over not getting a great deal is not worth. Frustration yes, anger no.
