Walmart's Coupon Policy

I am starting a new topic on store's coupon policies so you can all have the right information on each store if for some reason you need it. Every once in a while I will get a cashier who will not allow printable coupons when I know that the coupon policy for the store is to allow them. It is frustrating, but I think because of some coupon fraud problems that have happened in the past, stores are starting to get a little more nervous about accepting printable coupons. So, for now I will be trying to get coupon policies from various stores. This should help, if you have any problems with your particular store you can show the cashier the policy if you have it with you.

So, to start this off I have Walmart's Coupon Policy. You can go HERE to see the exact coupon policy but for the most part these are the coupons that Walmart will accept:

* Manufacturer coupons (Cents Off)
* Free merchandise (or Buy-One-Get-One-Free) coupons
* Store coupons
* Pharmacy (Advertising and Promotional) coupons
* Internet coupons
* Soft drink container caps

The following are guidelines and limits in their policy:

* Walmart only accepts coupons for merchandise they sell and only when presented at the time of purchase.
* Coupons should have an expiration date and be presented within the valid dates. Walmart will not accept expired coupons.
* Internet coupons should be legible and say “Manufacturer Coupon.” There should be a valid remit address for the manufacturer and a scannable bar code.
* Only one coupon per item is permitted.
* Use of 40 or more coupons per transaction will require approval by a Customer Service Manager.
