Walmart Couponing

Walmart recently released a new coupon policy, which you may wish to print and keep with you when you plan to use coupons at their store.  Since it is new, many employees may not be familiar with some of the changes, especially regarding coupon overage.

In a nutshell, using coupons at Walmart is pretty simple.  You can use printed or clipped coupons at face value.  Internet printed coupons for "free"items are not accepted, but those clipped from inserts, magazines, etc. are still fine.  Though Walmart doesn't offer any stacking or store-specific coupons, they do honor coupons from competitors (including cash register Catalinas) with a specified amount for a specified product (no Wags Register Rewards or $ off your next order).

Be prepared for the cashier to call in a manager if your purchase meets any of the following criteria:
  • 40 or more coupons
  • Any coupon over $20
  • $50 or more in coupons in one transaction

Perhaps the greatest advantage of couponing at Walmart is their overage policy.  You are granted the full amount of the coupon, no matter the price of the item.  I recently read a post from Frugal Fritzie, where she had bought multiple $.97 items with $3/1 coupons for each.  A shopping cart full of items quickly becomes affordable with this kind of overage savings!
