Walmart 2011 Coupon Policy


I often get questions about Walmart's coupon policy.  You can view and print the Walmart Coupon Policy here.

I suggest you take it with you when you go because many of their cashiers are unfamiliar with their own coupon policy.  Here’s what Wal-mart WILL accept:
  • Manufacturer’s coupons
  • Printed at Home coupons (internet or IP coupons)- WILL NOT accept printed at home coupons for items that require no purchase (“free” item coupons). Buy 1, get 1 free coupons require a purchase so these are valid.  Coupons MUST be legible, have “manufacturer’s coupon” written on it, have a valid remit address for the manufacturer, valid expiration date and a bar code that is scannable.
  • Competitor’s coupons that feature a SPECIFIC ITEM FOR A SPECIFIC PRICE. For example, a coupon that says: Kelloggs Cornflakes $2.99.  This is like price matching from a competitor’s ad.  They WILL NOT accept any other store coupons that say, for example: $.50/1 Tide or 50% off Tide.
  • Competitor’s “Check Out Coupons” or  catalinas. They MUST be legible, have “manufacturer’s coupon” written on them with specific requirements, a valid remit address for the manufacturer on them, a valid expiration date and a scannable bar code.
  • Soft drink container caps
Wal-mart WILL NOT accept:
  • Print at home internet coupons that require no purchase. (aka free product coupons)
  • Other competitors store coupons for dollar or cents off a product, percent off a product, buy 1 get 1 free, or double-triple off. To make this clear NO Store coupons from other places will be accepted unless they are for a specific item at a specific price. For example: you have a coupon for Tide liquid detergent and the coupon states it is to be sold for $5.99. Wal-mart will then take the coupon and sell you the Tide for $5.99.
Wal-mart Guidelines and Limitations:
    Limit 1 coupon per item 
  • Coupons must have an expiration date and be used prior to expiration
  • Coupons MAY EXCEED THE PRICE OF THE ITEM. Change may be given or applied towards the cost of the basket purchase.
  • We only accept coupons for the merchandise we sell.
  • Coupons must be presented at the time of purchase.
  • We accept the following with Customer Service Supervisor or Management approval:
  • 40 or more coupons
  • Any coupon over $20.00
  • $50.00 or more in coupons in a single transaction
