NEW Coupon Policy at Walmart
Walmart posted an updated coupon policy this week and there are some exciting details!
■Competitors’ coupons that feature a specific item for a specified price (for example $2.99). So for example, a Safeway in-ad coupon for $1.77 Quaker oatmeal – you could use that one, because it specifies a specific amount, not an amount off.
■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.
■Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase. SWEET! So if you have a $1 coupon for an item that is only $0.50 cents you’d get the extra $0.50 as change or applied toward your purchase.
If you’re going to run out and test the new policy I suggest you bring a copy of it with you. The cashiers may or may not be familiar with the changes.
