Walmart just posted their official coupon policy!
Walmart accepts the following types of coupons (see guidelines below):
- Manufacturers’ coupons
- Print-at-home internet coupons (These 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 (an example would be a coupon for Oreos for $1.50)
- Soft drink container caps
- Checkout coupons (Catalinas) that are printed at 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. (This is AWESOME!)
- Walmart only accepts coupons for merchandise that they sell
- Coupons must be presented at the time of purchase.
They will accept the following with Customer Service Supervisor/Management approval:
- 40 or more coupons
- Coupons over $20
- $50 or more in coupons in one transaction
I am so glad to see tha Walmart has posted these guidelines on their website. I hope the other stores will soon follow. Now all I need is Walmart to distribute this to their cashiers. I hate that Tony gets embarrassed when I have to explain to the cashier that she WILL accept my coupon. =)
