Walmart New Coupon Policy

I am generally not a Walmart shopper. How about you? Are you excited about these changes?

Walmart has released a new coupon policy. This is the first time it has been released online. As with all things it may take a little bit of time for store employees to get good at the changes so I would print it out and take it with you on your next trip.

Read through the whole policy but here are a few highlights:

  • You should now be able to use Walgreens Register Rewards! “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.”
  • “Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase” Nice. I love when you can use overage on other things like produce or dairy.
  • Walmart accept competitor coupons that have an actual price for an item. You see a lot of these in the Walgreens ads. It is similar to price matching.

Comments

  1. Tried it today. Took a printed copy of Walmart policy with me, good thing I did, the cashier had to read it and then ok’d my $18.00 in Walgreens register rewards. Very convenient, as Walgreens has little this week that I like. I got caught up on my gardening supplies at Wallmart which just came in this week. Great timing!

  2. Which Walmart did you go to?

  3. My Walmart is in Cincinnati on Ferguson Road store 2447.

  4. I tried using my Walgreens register rewards today at walmart and they wouldn’t take them! We went on line and looked at their coupon policy and it hadn’t been updated since 2012 so I came home and printed this and will go back and see what happens!

  1. […] these small bags and have $1 overage to go towards the other items your are buying! (You can read Walmart’s policy on coupon overage here.) So your deal would look like […]
