New Walmart Coupon Policy

walmart coupon policy New Walmart Coupon Policy

Well, there is a new and updated Walmart Coupon Policy available.  The old policy has been updated and here are some of the most notable additions are:

1) Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase.

2) Checkout coupons or “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, will now be accepted.

There is a bit of bad news though.  This is an important change:  Walmart now does not accept print-at-home Internet coupons that require no purchase.

Here is what the policy states in full:

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.

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

I would love to hear what YOU think of this new policy. But most importantly Walmart wants to know what you think of it. Provide Walmart feedback on this new and improved coupon usage guideline by filling out this quick survey.
