I don’t usually post Walmart deals, I frankly don’t have the time or energy to add another store to the list. But after seeing the newes revision of the Walmart coupon policy I might have to start paying more attention to them. (What do you think, do you wish I posted more Walmart deals?)
Walmart posted an updated coupon policy today 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. This is great news. I guess Fred Meyer will also now take competitor catalinas like this.
- Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase. WAHOO! 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. Pretty cool!
If you’re going to run out and test the new policy, make sure and bring a copy of it with you. The cashiers may or may not be familiar with the changes.
So what do you think about Walmart’s new coupon policy? Do you find your local Walmart to be coupon friendly?
(Thanks, Consumer Queen!)
