Walmart Coupon Policy Update: Overage Allowed!!

This news is bananas, y'all. Walmart has updated their official coupon policy to clarify previous questions many of us had about the type of competitor's coupons they would accept. But here's the really exciting part!! New wording in the coupon policy now OFFICIALLY allows for overage when the value of a coupon exceeds the cost of the item. WOOOHOOOO!!! No more haggling with cashiers or begging them to adjust coupons down -- even better, we score overage and have the document from corporate to back it up! I'm kinda crushing on Walmart tonight. *swoon*

Here are some of the most important changes...

Walmart accepts:
  • Competitors' coupons that feature a specific item for a specified price
    • for example, $2.99
  • 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.

Walmart does not accept:

  • Competitors' coupons for dollars/cents or percentage off, buy one get one free, and double- or triple-value coupons

The following are guidelines and limitations:

  • Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase.
