If you missed any of the posts from the Online Coupon Workshop, please visit the Online Coupon Workshop page under the Welcome Tab at the top of the page. If you missed yesterday’s lesson about knowing your store’s coupon policy, you can find it HERE.
Walmart’s corporate coupon policy seems to shift frequently. Store managers are also allowed a lot of flexibility beyond the current policy. Here are the details for the basics of the corporate policy:
* Will accept 1 manufacturer’s coupon (MQ) per item
* Will not accept internet printable coupons for free products
* Will accept competitor coupons with a specified price, not for $X off a product
* Will accept “catalina” coupons printed from competitor stores if marked as a manufacturer’s coupon
* Will not accept coupons for dollars off your purchase
* Has no limit to the number of coupons you can use in a transaction but the computer will prompt for an override if:
- You exceed 40 coupons per transaction.
- You use a coupon of $20 or greater on one item.
- You have $50 or more in coupons in one transaction.
Price Matching: Yes — Will match price on exact item sold at a competitor’s store if listed in the sales advertisement
* No longer need to have the advertisement
* Must be the same item/size/color/flavor
* Will not match BOGOs unless a price is specified
* Must have the store loyalty card
* Will match prices from local produce stands
* Will price comp produce and meats at pound for pound or item for item pricing
* According to their policy, they will no longer match prices on store brands
* Will not match “everyday” low prices from other stores
* Will not match the prices from other local Walmart stores or online prices
Tomorrow, we are going to discuss how to use the Walmart Price Matching Guarantee to save as well as some variations to the corporate coupon policy.
