Walmart Has A New Coupon Policy!

Walmart has just recently updated their coupon policy which seems to be very clear-cut and coupon-friendly.  The most amazing, I-had-to-read-it-twice statement in the whole policy is, "Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase."

Here are some of the other highlights of the new coupon policy:

Walmart accepts the following types of coupons:
  • Manufacturers' coupons
  • Print-at-home internet coupons
  • Competitors' coupons that feature a specific item for a specified price {price-matching}
  • Soft drink container caps
  • Checkout coupons {Catalinas}
Walmart does not accept the following coupons:
  • Print-at-home "free" coupons
  • 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

What do you think about the new coupon policy?

It is a little confusing and I'm surprised that Walmart put that in their coupon policy because it is actually price matching. Walmart will take a coupon from a competitor that has the competitor's price on the coupon {Family Dollar and Walgreen's often have these in their flyers}. When you buy the same item and Walmart's price is higher than the competitor's, they will price match and give you the competitor's price for that item.
