Extreme Couponing Tip: Walmart and Target Web Coupons

Extreme Couponing Tip: Walmart and Target Web Coupons

Does Walmart accept Target Web Coupons?
We get this question quite often. Below you’ll find the answer & reasoning behind it:

  • Walmart’s new policy states that they will only accept “Competitors’ coupons that feature a specific item for a specified price. For example, $2.99″
  • They specifically prohibit “Competitors’ coupons for dollars/cents or percentage off, buy one get one free, and double- or triple-value coupons”, which almost all Target Web Coupons are.
  • Also, “Print-at-home internet coupons must be legible, have “Manufacturer Coupon” printed on them, have a valid remit address for the manufacturer, valid expiration date, and have a scannable bar code.” So Target Web Coupons are store coupons and do not have a remit address, therefore they are not accepted at Walmart stores*.
*A few select Walmart stores may accept Target Web Coupons if that area considers Target a heavy competitor. This is up to the manager’s discretion. If your store does accept Target Web Coupons currently, please know that this is a courtesy, not the rule and may be subject to withdrawal at any time.

    I WAS ABLE TO USE TARGET COUPONS @ MY WALMART. I REMINDED MY FRONT MANGER OF THEIR COMMERICAL ABOUT “MATCHING” IT, NO MATTER WHAT AND HE TOLD ME YES THEY WILL! THEN, AFTER I WAS FINISHED WITH MT CHECKOUT, HE GAVE ME THE TARGET COUPON BACK AND TOLD ME THEY COULDN’T USE THEM AND WAS TOLD IN A MEETING THEY JUST HAD, TO RETURN THEM BACK TO THE CUSTOMER! I TOLD HIM “WELL THAT MEANS I CAN REUSE THEM AGAIN AND HE SAID, ” WELL, THAT’S WHAT THEY TOLD US TO DO”! GO FIGURE!

      You are allowed to price match an item on sale in a competitor’s current ad, but you cannot use a competitor coupon unless it states an item for a specific price, like Colgate 6oz toothpaste for $2.99. They do NOT have to take Target dollar-amount-off coupons.

      Coupon inserts do vary by region (cent-off amounts and the actual product coupons). You can look into buying coupons online at coupon clipping sites or eBay if you did not receive those particular ones.

    Walmart took my Wal-green coupons last night…………or at least I got the same price for the items that Walgreens was advertising the items for……

    Wow I can’t believe the way some these wal mart cashiers behave I work at one in AL, and some of our cashiers may get irratated but they have never been this rude to my knowledge, i’ve always shopped there and will continue to do so they accept in coupon that fits the policy and they generally don’t argue with the customer.I just started couponing, i’ve always used one here and there but last night I saved $15 and used like ten coupns, had no problem, it took a minute on the Target coupons because she had to scroll through and find the right vendor but other wise no problems. And I’ve talked to other people and they say that sometimes they’ll get a cashier who don’t know the policy but manger just comes over deals with it. I guess it all depends on the people running the store, our store manager is all about pleasing the customer. I’m sorry so many of ya’ll have bad expriences with wolly world. Hope every one has a good day,and finds lots of good deals.lol

    I’m glad! I’d rather spend my money at Target when it comes to these items, I can stack coupons there AND (fyi for those Walmart Ad Matchers out there) Target will match ads. However you have to show them the ad and the item has to be identical to the brand and size in the ad.

  10. Anonymous says:

    When you put the coupons in the binder, do you mix the store coupons with the manufacturers coupons? What’s the easiest way to put both the store coupons and the manufacturers coupons in the binder. I’m getting tired of thumbing through my stack of target coupons to match up with the manufacturers coupons that are already put away in their proper place.

    • Anonymous says:

      You can definitely organize store coupons within the categories that you keep your manufacturer coupons in. It does make it easier to see at a glance which coupons you have and which ones to stack. Some KCLs have an extra baseball sleeve per store and keep them there.
      The alternative would be keeping your store coupons all in one place (like a zip-up plastic bag or sheet protector) or in separate envelopes for each store.

    I went to Wal-Mart this morning and the CSM refused to take my printed smartsource coupons. She said they don’t pay Wal-Mart back. She also price matched Colgate toothpaste to The CVS price of .79 cents, but then refused to take my .75 cents off coupon. She said if she took it I would be getting them practically free and Wal-Mart would lose money. 1-800-walmart said that she should have accepted the coupon. I think I’ll try a different location next time.

      I recommend printing out the Wal-Mart coupon policy as well as their ad matching guarantee and taking them with you when you shop at Wal-Mart. You can price match an item for a specific price AND use a manufacturer coupon. Wal-Mart does not lose money by taking your manufacturer coupons. If fact, they actually make money by accepting your manufacturer coupons. Usually 8-12 cents extra per coupon for handling fees. Manufacturers reimburse the stores the face value of the coupon PLUS handling fees!

    Do you know if walmart will accept a coupon that is marked manufacturer coupon, with address, but has a winco food label on it? THe address is to Bush Brothers- it is buy 4 cans get 1 dollar off.

    • Anonymous says:

      The should accept it as long as it has all the manufacturer elements: says Manufacturer Coupon across the top, has a valid remit address, a scannable bar code, and expiration date. Also they accept Catalinas printed at other retailers, so that coupon you mentioned shouldn’t be a problem.

    My Walmart has 2 excellent checkers here who are friendly and competent, and who know I’m abiding by the coupon policy. However my husband and I were in the other day (unfortunately both checkers had the day off) and a new checker was the only one who had a line open. While ringing up the transaction, I said “I’m going to set my coupons here whenever you need them” and set them on the little check-writing table at the register. Well, she took a long hard look at my stack of coupons, made a face, and muttered “Oh, great. I’m trying to go to break!” Toward the end of the transaction I handed her my coupons. She handed them right back to me and said she couldn’t take my coupons now because (she claimed) she “didn’t see” my coupons before she hit the total button. (yeah, right). She said “You’re going to have to go to Customer Service and have them DEAL WITH THESE.” (pointing to my coupon stack). I had to wait in line for an additional 15 minutes so they could give me cash back for my coupons.

      I’m sorry you ran into a cashier that didn’t understand (I too have my favorite cashiers!). I would have let the management know how you were treated by this cashier. Coupons are as good as cash (plus the store gets 8¢ extra per coupon) and you deserve to be treated with kindness and respect, just like any other customer. Also let the manager know about the 2 cashiers you like– compliment them and let the manager know how much you appreciate them. When they receive compliments and positive feedback, they are more likely to reward those checkers and foster a coupon-friendly environment.
      For the future, I follow these 2 steps that usually help out:
      1. I always ask my checker if they want all the coupons at the end, or as we go. It varies on the store and checker.
      2. If they want them all at the end, I usually don’t hand them the whole stack. I will give them one set, tell them what it is for and how many I have (this helps, because the less reading and counting they have to do, the happier they are)
      Best of luck!

    On Walmarts buy one get one free if it has the price in the ad say you save 2.99 We will comp it for 2 at 2.99. Than we will take a coupon too. I’m a CSM at walmart. The main problem is the cashiers thinking they know everything and not wanting to listen. So at my store i have at each regester a copy of the coyupon policy. That way it can’t be confused.

  19. Kathey says:

    at wal-mart you can only use one coupon per item. they will not allow you to stack. hope this helps. you can price match and use a manufacturer’s coupon though. that’s about as close as you will be allowed to come to stacking, sorry. i wish that they would because i shop there at least 4 times a week and would love to get even better deals.

  20. Dsiver1 says:

    I always scope out the registers when I first go in to see who’s line ill have the least problems with. Sure helps the transactions go smoother. You should be able to find a few cashiers who won’t question every coupon. I had a horrible visit last Walmart trip and will never use that lady again….

    Can’t say thank you enough! Randalls ran a coupon for charcoal with price clearly stated $4.99. Walmart price was $7.48. Manager said they would not accept an ad coupon, because it was a competitors coupon. Printed policy to have with me for next time!

  23. Lyndee2374 says:

    I don’t know about anyone else but my Walmart has been lacking in customer service since they opened. The rudeness didn’t start when I decided to start couponing. From the old crotchety door greeters to the foreign employees to the employees who has no clue on what their store sales or anything….You name it I hate it!!! If it wasn’t for the Low low price I wouldn’t go there…Would someone please create a new chain store that we can all shop at and truly love. And as for the coupon policy…It also says that they wont accept double coupons but my Walmart accepts the Albertsons doublers so whats the deal with that? Make the rules and stick to them so we all know what the heck is going on cause its confusing everyone of us!!!

  24. Debbi says:

    Some CSMs are just power-hungry. One of my fave checkers is leaving bc the new CSM for her area is one of those & micro-manages everything, making the checkers call her for coupon verification! I was in last week & my checker said she had to call “you know who again”. When the CSM arrived, she immediately said she couldn’t take my on-line Q w/o even looking at it. I keep my Wal-mart Policy in the clear plastic sleeve on the front of my binder, so when she said she couldn’t take it, I placed my binder on the counter. She grumbled, then punched it in. After she left, everyone in the area had a great laugh at her expence!

  25. Chanel says:

    Can you please explain the Target coupon policy. Whenever I stack a Target q with a manufacturer coupon, the regisuter always beeps and it has to be entered manually. The other day, I attempted to do a price match on Kelloggs cereal and was told I could not stack the coupons because they state only one coupon per transaction (but they all say that, don’t they?). After arguing that point away, I was told I could not use a Target coupon and/or stack when doing a price match. Say what? They let me do it that day, but said I could not in the future. HELP!!!!

  26. Allie says:

    My Wal-Mart allows us to use the $ off and store specific coupons as a “price match”. Depending on the cashier that you get, they will give you more, as long as you can show the ad or coupon. If the register accepts it, they will do it.

    Example: I had a coupon that was for Oreos 2 for $3 with coupon. The coupon was a competitor’s so I had them price match it because I didn’t think that the code would work. They matched it and at the end also ran the coupon so I got the Oreos 2 for $1.50. This also worked on Oscar Meyer lunch meat… got 2 for $2…

    I guess it’s all about knowing your cashiers and who will help you and not question.. :)

    Wow that blows how walmarts can be. I am from a small town so i know alot of the people that work at mine. I have never had a problem using any coupons. I did use a target printed one the other day and the guy could not get it to work til he remembered that he was to just price adjust the item. Only thing was he was not good at math. glad i am!! I did have an older lady one time say all the coupons people are now using are a pain. I nicley reminded her the store makes money on them and she was fine.

  29. Marla Green says:

    Ours accepts them using their ad/price match policy, so if it says $2.00 off then they lower the price by $2.00 as if they were matching the advertised price of an item at a competitor…then you can use a manufacterer coupon on that item also :)

  30. AlannaMommy says:

    My local Walmart says they will not accept ANY printed manufacturer coupons. I even tried using a catalina (something I thought would be viewed as an actual coupon since I physically did not print it) but they said that’s a printed coupon and not accepted. It’s trial and error at Walmart these days…

  32. am says:

    I called Walmart’s Corporate office yesterday regarding Target’s Web printed coupons and was told that they “DO” accept them. I was also informed that they would contact my Walmart so that upper management can inform the cashiers regarding this matter because the cashier did not want to take my Target coupon. However, they will only take either the Target coupon or the manufacturer’s coupon but not both for the same item.

  33. Leigh says:

    KCL, perhaps you could address this question in a future post. I read Wal-Mart’s coupon policy and it states that they give overage on coupons worth more than the product price. Does this apply to coupons for “BOGO free up to ___”? One of my Wal-Mart stores was giving you the max value of the free coupon. So if the item was $3.50 and the BOGO coupon was good up to $5.00, you would get $1.50 overage. Were they applying the policy incorrectly? The store I went to today did not do it.

    Also, is Wal-Mart supposed to take a dollars off coupon in conjunction with a BOGO free coupon? I had a BOGO Gillette body wash and a $2 off one Gillette body wash. My local drugstores allow this — $2 off the one you are buying and then the other coupon for the free one. Two products, two coupons. I was not allowed to use two coupons like this today, as they told me you are not really getting one item free, but you are getting two half price items and getting a discount on both. Is this true? The Wal-Mart policy does not address this.

    • Nascgrl8 says:

      I would love to know the answer to your second question, also. I tried the same Gillette coupons and got denied….Maybe instead of doing a dance to motivate their employees, Wal-Mart should educate their employees on their own policies!!

    • Carmelita21 says:

      I would like to know the answer to this as well. I had the same problem, I dont remember what the items were but I had a b1g1 and then a cents off I was trying to use and they wouldnt let me use the cents off because they told me I was required to purchase the item to get the other for free.. my argument was it didnt state that I had to purchase it at full price. I dont have problems using them like that at my drug stores.. but they wouldnt allow it at walmart..

    • Alc013188 says:

      Leigh,
      I had the same issue with the same coupons. the other day also. If you find anything out regarding this issue let me know. Thanks

  34. Jayhawk says:

    Dont get to frustrated with walmart, the new policy is confusing and the only training I was allowed to do with my cashiers was a less than 5 minute chat, and hand them the policy. Heres the key, use the words PRICE MATCH. you ARE NOT required to have the ad. Im a csm at my local wal-mart, and if you feel AT ALL like your are bieng treated poorly, ask for one of us. If that does not do the trick, there is a number with the managers cell phone number by every register. CALL IT, be polite, but firm – we need better training for our cashiers, and we need to know these types of issues to get it. Thanks.

    • Bishops25 says:

      I am confused and maybe you can help clear the confusion with working at walmart. Some have said that walmart takes target coupons for $$ off by doing a price match basically. For example if the item is 2.50 and the target coupon is for $1.00 off, they reduce the price to 1.50. Is this correct or not? I have had walgreens coupons scan, by complete accident, I was doing the price match and had them in my envelope. I am just looking for clarity because I don’t have a local target and there are times that there is a great deal and I miss it because of the drive.

    • Leigh says:

      Thanks for the info. I had a terrible time with my coupons at Wal-Mart today. I don’t mind following the policy, but it is hard to know what it is when 5 cashiers will allow something and 5 won’t, and it depends on which CSM or assistant manager you ask. I tried to get a price match one time (I won’t try again bc of the hassle) and the woman insisted that I needed the ad and said “how do I know you’re not making it up?” Her tag said she was a CSM, too. I usually return my drugstore fliers to the racks when I am done shopping, so I was lucky I had one in my car. She made me go back out to the car at like 11:30 PM in the dark and bring the ad back. What a hassle!

    • Cherissa Hamill says:

      What if its the MOD that is the one being rude. I was at walmart and I always put my PM stuff at the end, so we got to the mountain dew and i said I want to price match these for 88cents from CVS. She asked me for my ad and I politely said your policy says I do not have to have the ad with me. She called the manager over and she said if the price is less than half of the price they sell it for then you have to have the ad. Cashier asked what their policy was and the manager looked at me and said its at every managers discretion at every store and walked away.

    If you wanna have some fun the next time you are in Walmart, go into a fitting room and shut the door and wait a while; and then, yell very loudly, “There is no toilet paper in here!”

    Just came from my Walmart in Central Oregon. They took my $3.00/2 John Frieda Target Coupon, stacked with a MQ, and my $1.00/1 Degree deoderant target coupon, also stacked with a MQ. I’m thankful. They basically do a price adjustment using the target coupon to reduce the price (consider this part of their price matching), and then take the MQ off the reduced price. Yay! I don’t shop at Walmart much anymore, but I’m thankful they are still taking the target coupons!

    i have a general question. Does anyone know the difference between a trial size and a travel size; are the considered the same?

    Just curious if you can use a coupon for a travel sized item that says “not valid on trial sizes” Or can you only use a coupon on a travel item that says any size.

    Thanks

    Speaking of, WinnDixie has a coupon this week for $5 off purchase of $30 or more (with card). Does anyone know if Publix takes these types of coupons from competitors as well? Thanks!

          That statement is totally false. The following is the official Publix coupon policy:

          “Publix accepts manufacture’s coupons (limit one per item), Publix coupons (originals only—no copies), valid internet coupons, and coupons from nearby competitors identified by each Publix store. (Competitor names are posted at each Publix store.) We will accept coupons from competing pharmacies for prescriptions only. We will not accept percent-off-items or percent-off-total-order coupons. We will only accept coupons for identical merchandise we sell. Acceptance is subject to any restrictions on the coupon, and we reserve the right to limit quantities. Manager approval is needed for individual coupons above $5.00. For a buy-one-get-one free (BOGO) offer, each item is considered a separate sale. We will accept a manufacture’s coupon and either a Publix or a competitor coupon on the same item. Dollars-off-total-order coupons will be limited to one Publix and one competitor coupon per order. The order total must be equal to or greater than the total purchase requirements indicated on the coupon(s) presented.

    • angel says:

      yes they do. just make sure before you give them your other coupons you hand them that first, then your other coupons

    • Yellowjacketgal says:

      As long as your Publix considers Winn Dixie a competitor, yes. However, if you have a Publix coupon for money off your order (ex: $5 off your next purchase of $30) and you want to use both the Winn Dixie coupon and the Publix coupon, your total order must equal the two total order amounts added together. For example, you have a Winn Dixie coupon for $5 off any purchase of $30 or more and a Publix coupon for $10 off any purchase of $50. In order to use both, your total before coupons must be equal to or greater than $80. That having been said, make sure that you give them the $$ off total order coupon before your other coupons.

    I prefer to shop at Walmart then my local drug stores. Walmart is less hassle free and have never not accepted my coupons. They will not accept competitors coupons that are not ones for a specific price, sounds fair to me. They have done any price matching that I have taken in, and always take the price after any rewards. For example: pantene shampoo – 2/$5.50 rewards is $2.00 back for a total of 2/$3.50. They will allow me to get it for $3.50. Now, as for the ones that state FREE after rewards, I have never asked Walmart to match those because I feel that is not a fair deal for them, kinda a common courtesy thing. For those, I will just go to the the store that is offering them free. No big deal. I have found that most cashiers don’t completely understand the whole “coupon thing” but when in doubt they have always asked and it has always worked in my favor. Remember you get further with honey then hot sauce, something like that. Treat them the way you want to be treated.

    I’m confused. I have never seen a coupon (store or otherwise) say something to the effect of get x product for y price. If I understand this policy correctly, Walmart has essentially stated that they take competitors’ coupons, but only the type that don’t exist?! Huh?!

    • Shopperb99 says:

      I used coupons at walmart the other day. I waited until the end of the transaction and gave her all my coupons (at her request). They were all $ off amounts, some manufacturer and some competitor coupons. If they wouldn’t scan, she manually entered them in. No problem at all.

      • Yellowjacketgal says:

        That’s your Walmart. I went today with some competitor coupons for $5 off a specific item and the manager informed me that because it wasn’t for a specific price, they couldn’t accept it. I’m just trying to understand their policy. I mean, I have never seen a coupon say something to the effect of get x product for y price. The only time that I’ve seen anything of that nature, it was part of a weekly flyer/mailer/advertisement. So, what does this policy really mean? What competitor coupons (if any) can you use at Walmart?

          They take coupons that say, for example, “Dawn dish washing liquid, 10 oz for $.99″. You find these in the Walgreens circulars pretty much every week, and I think sometimes Dollar General circulars. But, “.50 off 10 oz Dawn” will not work if it’s a competitor coupon.

    One day at Walmart when the cashier figured out that I was getting a item for like .30 cent she called a manager over and made a scene and said she did not think it was right I was getting this item so cheap! Yes I ahve been treated like a criminal at walmart. The manager just told her there was nothing she could do about it because the coupon was valid and walked away, then while I was leaving the store the chashier went talking smack about me to another person! A decent manager would have apoligized for the RUDE employee. I hate wal-mart and wish we had a target!

    • Sheryl S says:

      Candice, hopefully you will get other replies as well, but here is my experience with the 2 Targets in my town that I go to. They will price match, but it must be done at Customer Service (not at the checkout) AND it cannot be at a place like a CVS where the ad sale price clearly states “with EB card”, or like a grocery store with a savings card or a store ad that says “in store coupon”. I prefer to do price matching at Wal Mart, but my couponing usually goes better at Target! Go figure.

      • Kevin says:

        My Walmart (North Windham CT) accepts Target coupons, though I sometimes have to wait for the cashier to get a supervisor to verify which is usually a fairly quick process. Walmart has always taken my coupons without any problems though they do not double coupons, so I go to Price Chopper, Big Y or Stop And Shop which do, for some items.

  63. Algava says:

    I only have problems with older cashiers. I never go extreme, I think the most coupons I used in one transaction were 8. Today at Walmart I got some stuff and you know how most of the time you can only print two coupons from your computer…the cashier thought one was photocopied :) called for manager but all she said was as long as it scans it’s OK. Oh well, it’s annoying sometimes that some of them don’t know their own coupon policy or much about couponing. So I just smile and wait for my transaction to be over promising to myself to not go to the same cashier next time :)

    • OvenMitt says:

      Yeah, I had an older cashier at Walmart who had problems scanning, like, one coupon. She proceeded to repeat ” I HATE coupons! I just HATE them!” over and over again for the remainder of my transaction. My face got hot and couldn’t even look at the people in line behind me; I felt like some kind of evil-doer, hehe! It’s no coincidence my trips to Walmart are becoming more and more sporadic…

      • Jlhanson302 says:

        I would have reported her to the manager. No one in customer service should EVER make a customer feel bad for trying to save money. I would have been fired and maybe she should have, due to her poor attitude.

  64. Melisa says:

    One of the Walmarts in SLC, Utah 1300 south 300 west location price matched for me NO problem, accepted as many coupons as I had NO problem, when it came to the Target Coupon they had to go ask the manager. I had the coupon policy in hand (didn’t read the part that the Target Web Coupons don’t have a remit address) The manager educated the cashier nicely and she seemed happy to know that they do accept them. I also had another cashier ask where I get my printable coupons. She herself is a student and wants to save as much money as possible. I don’t go to Walmart often but this time I was pleasantly surprised.

      • I have tried this.. and the woman continued to argue with me that it accepted both of my coupons .. Manu and Target.. Which was a lie.. I get tired of the idiots that want to proceed to argue with a customer.. I was always taught when working in retail such as Target and Lowes, the customer is always right :o/ but I do walk in with a hand full of coupons though and the cashiers give me some looks lol… Have been asked where I get my coupons :o)

        • Tara Carter says:

          I went to Target thinking I was getting all these great deals and still felt ripped off. I didn’t check because I had to run and get another item. Was charged $6 for an item that had $3 all over the rack. The reciept was totally unreadable. I’m still confused and will NEVER go there again. Walgreens is about the best place around here. Piggly Wiggly and Walmart are the only grocery stores and they don’t do double coupons.

          At Walmart: I was at the checkout with THREE THINGS and the lady was complaining because the girls in the office weren’t going to be happy about it.

          I’m trying to get more into couponing and doing a good job but it’s hard out here.

  66. Alc013188 says:

    Debbie, I have tried the “b1G1 Free” at Walmart from a price match and they will not except the “get 1 free” part of the match. I however, did get the price match amount excepted. I belive in there policy the say you cannot price match a b1g1 free deal.
    I like to do my razor deals at my Walmart, I can get them to price match the “after manf. coupon price” and add the manf. coupon. Ex: Proglide in ad states ” $9.89 minus $4.00 manf. coupon=$5.89″ I can take that $5.89 and match it to walmart and still use my $4.00 coupon to make the razor $1.89 in the end.
    Hope this helps:)

    • Debbie Abold says:

      Actually their policy states they do not match giftcards deals, so they do not match after RR’s or Extra Care Bucks out here. Not that I even try, because I love my drug stores.

      But their policy states they will match a b1g1 free if it states a specific price, which the Walgreen’s ad did. So they should have honored it, but that is the least of my gripes with them. People who go to Walmart with expired and home made fake coupons have really ruined it for a lot of people out here.

        • Anonymous says:

          Walmart stores do NOT have to price match an “After Rewards” price, especially since sometimes items are “Free after Reward”.
          This is because the different types of checkout coupons (“Catalinas”) are to be used on a FUTURE purchase, so they cannot be used in the transaction that you use to buy that item. So it’s not very fair to ask Walmart to include it in the transaction for the item that you are purchasing, when not even the original store does that.
          Also most of the different store “Catalinas” (RR, EB, Up+) cannot be redeemed at Walmart (store coupons must be for a specific price for a specific item, and Catalinas must be manufacturer coupons for an amount off of a specific item). So looking at it from Walmart’s perspective, it wouldn’t be reasonable to have to price match that lower price.

        Good to know, all I know is MY Walmart matches the “After the COUPON price” of a sale. So, if the sale states: Razor- $9.89
        Manf.-Q $4.00
        They match that price and I still can put a manf.-q on top of it gwtting the razor for $1.89. And to the b1g1 free coupon matching, I must have gotten a mean register lady that time. I will try again.
        P.S.- I’ve never heard of people making homemade coupons, that’s horrible!

    I love my Wal-Mart stores! They have a huge product selection, price matching without bringing in the ads, great prices and they give overage. Yes, some of the cashiers are uneducated, but they are teachable. If there’s a problem, a CSM will come over and educate them. Most cashiers are thrilled with the savings I get and want to learn how they can receive the same.

      • Shar says:

        I hate my Walmart too. I was just there the other day & neither the employees at the customer service desk nor the cashiers could tell me if they could price match an ad with a stated price. It just wasn’t worth the hassle.

          In December, I pledged not to go to WM 2011 because of rude workers. I broke down in May and went and then went back in June. I regret it everytime I think about it.

            I need to take that pledge. I’ve thankfully built up an awesome stockpile over the years that I don’t really *need* to go there for any reason, but I just get suckered in when I need a large quantity for either a donation or gathering, I hate clearing shelves in small places, I’d rather figure out another product or idea in most cases. But yeah.. I’ve read and heard from a few people that Walmart’s sales are actually down? Not sure if this is true or has anything to do with couponing.. But it would make sense.

I’ve thankfully built up an awesome stockpile over the years that I don’t really *need* to go there for any reason, but I just get suckered in when I need a large quantity for either a donation or gathering, I hate clearing shelves in small places, I’d rather figure out another product or idea in most cases. But yeah.. I’ve read and heard from a few people that Walmart’s sales are actually down? Not sure if this is true or has anything to do with couponing.. But it would make sense.

              sales would be UP if it was because of coupons because they consider the whole value of the item as the sale and then the amount of the coupon is treated as cash in their cash balancing system and then they are reimbursed!!

            • Rebecca says:

              I believe that Wal-Mart’s sales are down because people are using their coupons at other stores that allow stacking manufacturer coupons with store coupons. Also, many people are now buying health and beauty products at the drug stores with their various reward programs.

    • Kathey says:

      mine is like that too. very rarely do i have a problem with them. i think i have had a problem 1 time with them. and it was the attitude of a cashier but i put her in her place real quick. most of time, i teach the cashiers on the coupons and stuff. ours does the b1g1, price matching. we even have a local grocery store that does b2g3 and the price match that. and i use coupons with those. my cashiers are surprised with the savings and are like if you had more than you would be down to owing nothing. i normally don’t have the problems i’m hearing about, so to all of the comments on here, i am so sorry for you and everything you have to deal with. keep fighting and don’t let them get you.

  69. Debbie Abold says:

    I don’t like shopping there, ever. That is the ONLY place that makes me feel like a criminal if I use “too many” coupons. I’ve had my policy with me and they have several times refused to abide by it. Like when Walgreens had the Oscar Mayer hot dogs – they coupon clearly said “Buy one at 2.99, get one free” & they refused to accept it. They also read every letter of every coupon I use and try to find any way not to accept them. Like the whole purchase vs transaction. They just are not coupon friendly *here*. I’d rather spend a little extra on gas and go store to store then deal with their garbage.

      I was there earlier in my area and the looks that people give when the cashier is scanning the coupons are deadly. But I made off with free stuff and every item had a coupon except the candy that I bribed my son to shut up with. hah!

    • Danielle says:

      I had a problem with that deal too! They tried to tell me that I couldn’t do a price match and then use a coupon on top of the price match. I think I had a $1/2 Q. I had the store policy printed out and argued with the manager that no where in their policy did it state that. And I had just done a price match and used a coupon for cereal with no problems. He said it was just sent to him in an email. I politely told him that I don’t get his emails, so when it was posted to their corp. website, then I would follow that rule. He gave me the deal in the end, but good grief it was a hassle!!!

    • Alice Shultz says:

      So true Debbie – The Walmart here makes you feel guilty for trying to save money. Thanks to Krazycouponlady site – I went from one who automatically went to Walmart for everything and dreaded shopping – to finding a whole new world of places that are actually cheaper and much more customer friendly! Now I look forward to finding good deals.

    • Rwhitm2 says:

      Wal Mart would have matched the $2.99, but they do not do buy one get one free, it is in their policy above.

        Actually they do accept BOGO q’s. If you click the link above this is what it says

        -Buy one, get one free (BOGO) coupons for items with a specified price

      Hi, I shopped just yesterday at my closest Walgreens.
      I had their Coupons, MGF Coupons and AARP saving coupons. Only shopped for things we use or need. Spent $41.36…with a SAVINGS of $29.47. Not bad for this trip!
      WLG Alum foil,Palmolive dish soap, marigold seeds,WLG soda,WLG bottled water, Spelnda ,Charmin basic tissu, Eggs, N/B Flex Oil, and Replacement tooth brush heads that were a real steal on sale $5 off and then using my WALG $3.00 coupon ..for WALG products…

    Would they accept a competitor’s coupon and a manufacturer’s coupon (stacking) for a single item?
    I am wondering about the Lysol Hand Wash Dispenser…There is a $5.00 off coupon for Dollar General (considered a competitor at our Wal-Mart) and a $3.00 manufacturer coupon. At Wal-Mart this particular item is $7.97…If both coupons are used it would make this item free..plus overage.
    I was just at Wal-Mart and heard three cashiers tell the young lady in front of me that she could only use one coupon per item…Ummm….I wasn’t sure of the policy so I didn’t intervene…but curious to know! I just looked up the Dollar General coupon and it meets all of the criteria (Wal-mart) listed above for the acceptance…Anybody knows?

    • Debbie Abold says:

      You cannot use a competitor coupon for $ or cents off or b1g1 free. So you cannot stack them, no.

      • Shaidy8 says:

        You know Debbie you are right! I missed that!
        However, never once during the conversation did any of the three cashiers mentioned that! Funny! Their argument…all three kept saying that she could only use one coupon per item, which I thought was odd. But since I wasn’t sure I didn’t say anything!

        • Debbie Abold says:

          I like to keep this in mind whenever I go to Walmart, almost all the cashiers I deal with are very new or have ZERO training on the coupon policy, so I try my hardest not ever to confuse them, if they think something is off and it cannot be easily explained, I wont get it. To me, the head ache isn’t worth the sale. Even if its free. I’d rather wait for another deal or go to the store that is selling the item and get a raincheck.

          • Lsoltwedel says:

            I have to say my local Wal Mart sucks! It’s a little one, not a supercenter. I have had problems twice with coupons (keep in mind I normally do NOT go in this store)! First was the Nexcare bandaid one for $1.00 off which made them free. I heard it all! From it’s a photocopy (as it was of course printed in black ink) to (my favorite) we don’t take internet coupons. I argued with the CSM referring to there coupon policy. I left and called 1 800 Wal Mart. Where they apologized and repeated their own policy (exactly what I had told the CSM). I received a phone call from the store with an apology and a “we will take any coupon you bring us that scans” as long as it meets the standard criteria (which is in their policy). Went in a week later for some tape…and again my coupons were refused. I stated I would call corporate again and left. I just find it’s easier to go to Target (which is such a nicer place anyway) and Walgreens (not a CVS fan either). I love that I know a cashier at Walgreens (who is also an avid couponer) and she is always willing to help me figure out the best deals, since I am still fairly new to all this. Last week she even showed me her coupon binders, and told me where I can find a Chicago Tribune on Sundays (we live in Northern Indiana).

              In an instance like this, it’s a good idea to have the coupon policy printed out and handy. I carry the policy to each store I coupon at so just incase I get a misinformed cashier and even managers, I can whip it out, and usually the comply with the corporate rules

            If we all just left and didn’t buy things on sale because the cashiers at a particular store are known for their lack of training in their own coupon policy, wouldn’t it make more sense for you to make the purchase and have them call the manager if you have problems? I mean, I know it’s a bit of a headache, but that’s why I go when I know Walmart isn’t going to be busy.

            2 days ago I saw a young mom fighting with a cashier at the Commissary over this stuff, and I honestly didn’t mind waiting in line, because I was totally cheering her on! This male cashier was arguing with her and she won because she was right and knew the Commissary’s policy!

            I feel like she won a small victory for the rest of us couponers. She didn’t didn’t give up and now he knows better!

        • Kastie says:

          The reason they will take the other store’s coupon that shows a specific price is that it falls under their price matching policy. I had a very nice CSM at my local Walmart who explained this to me. Then they will take that coupon and the manufacturer coupon.

    • Anonymous says:

      It’s true– Walmart does only accept one coupon per item so you cannot stack a store coupon with a manufacturer coupon. You can, however, price match an item that’s on sale at another store and then use a manufacturer coupon on that item (since the store gets fully reimbursed for each manufacturer coupon).

        i’m sorry it happened to you. the next time that it does happen to you, tell them what they have to to do it manually enter it in as a manufacturer/vendor coupon because they do not scan, ever!!!!!! they do take them. i have to tell they cashier it on my first “non” manufacturer coupon every time i go to wal-mart. sometimes they want to call the csm over and sometimes they don’t. but i just tell them that they are not the first one i have had to tell them how to do it too. so make sure you really watch because they are not watching when they scan your stack of coupons and they will just go right by it on to the next one. i have had to tell them to stop several times. i am in wal-mart so much that i know the cashiers hate to see me. i use them so much because they do the price matching and use other stores coupons plus with my husband working at one, i get a discount too, which helps some. plus it helps cut back on gas from running from store to store to store. i hope this helps you. good luck.

      even if you found a store that would honor this coupon there wouldn’t be an overage because if they are price matching with a competitors coupon they wont give you the overage. Now if there is an overage with just a manufacturers coupon you will get that and are entitled to that since they will be getting paid back on that coupon. They wouldn’t get paid back on the competitors coupon.

    • Tia says:

      I stacked. My Walmart accepts Target web coupons and takes the value off of the price, I called it price matching, they took it. Then at the end of the transaction, I give them a stack of manufacturers coupons. I plan on using that for the Lysol Hand Wash Dispenser. :) I did it for Suave lotion last week and got it real cheap. We shall see if it works this week. :)

      • Lori says:

        I’m going to try that today here at my Walmart. I found out they will take a Target Web Coupon, they treat it as a price match and take the amount of the coupon off the price. I am going to use some of my Web Coupons with the others and see if they will stack.

        Wish me luck :)
