Walmart Coupon Policy

Here is Walmart’s Coupon Policy and I will be looking up their ad match guarantee in just a few minutes also, but will include it in a separate post.

I have not tended to have a problem using coupons at Walmart, but tend to save any of my $.50 off 1 coupons for Kroger. Others, in other states, have reported having trouble using blinkies at Walmart and other problems using coupons there.

We gladly accept the following types of coupons*

*The following are guidelines and limitations:
We only accepts coupons for merchandise that we sell.
Coupons must be presented at the time of purchase.
Only one coupon per item.
Item purchased must be identical to the coupon (size, quantity, brand, flavor, color, etc).
There is no limit on the number of coupons per transaction.
Coupons must have an expiration date and be redeemed prior to expiration.
If coupon value exceeds the price of the item, the excess may be given to the customer as cash or applied toward the basket purchase. (My emphasis.)
SNAP items purchased in a SNAP transaction are ineligible for cash back.
WIC items purchased in a WIC transaction are applied to the basket purchase and may not be eligible for cash back. Refer to state-specific WIC guidelines.
Great Value, Marketside, Equate, Parents Choice, and World Table coupons have no cash value and are ineligible for cash back or application to the basket purchase.

The system will prompt for supervisor verification for:
40 coupons per transaction.
A coupon of $20 or greater on one item.
$50 or more in coupons in one transaction.
