Walmart Coupon Policy and Ad Match Clarification

by Tara Kuczykowski on April 1, 2011 · 93 comments


As many of you know, there was quite a bit of confusion surrounding the newly released Walmart coupon policy at the beginning of March. Walmart has now provided additional clarification to the policy, as well as a clear ad match policy.

Walmart will accept the following coupons:

  • manufacturer's coupons
  • Internet printable coupons
  • competitor's coupons that have a specific price listed
  • soft drink container caps
  • Catalina coupons clearly labeled as "manufacturer's coupon"

Walmart does not accept the following coupons:

  • Internet printable coupons for a free product
  • competitor's coupons for dollars, cents or percentage off, B1G1 free, and double or triple value
  • Catalina coupons for dollars, cents or percentage off entire purchase

Please see the revised Walmart coupon policy for additional clarification regarding each type of coupon, as well as overall guidelines and limitations.


Walmart has also provided clarification on the Walmart ad match policy and created a nice printable version for easy reference.

Walmart will match the following types of ads:

  • buy one, get one free ads with a specified price
  • ads that feature a specific item at a specific price
  • preferred shopping card advertised prices for specific items
  • fresh produce and meat prices

Walmart does not match the following types of ads:

  • items that require a separate purchase to get the ad price
  • items without a specified price to get a free product
  • items that require a purchase to receive a gift card
  • buy one, get one free ads without a specified price
  • going out of business or closeout prices
  • percentage off sales
  • private label price promotions

Please see the Walmart ad match policy for additional clarification regarding each type of sale, as well as overall guidelines and limitations.

According to my sources, this information has been better communicated to the stores. That's not to say that you won't still encounter issues, but Walmart is committed to getting all stores on the same page. I'd still encourage you to print copies of both policies in the meantime, and please contact Walmart corporate relations by email or at 1-800-WALMART (1-800-925-6278) with any issues to get them resolved ASAP.

New and Improved Walmart Coupon Policy

by Tara Kuczykowski on March 4, 2011 · 187 comments


Hot off the presses here -- I've got a copy of the brand new Walmart Coupon Policy that is being implemented now! I've been working on this as a part of my involvement with Walmart Moms for nearly 2.5 years, so I'm thrilled to finally have some real results to share.

The two biggest changes that I see are that 1) Walmart will now be offering change back or overage on your transaction when a coupon exceeds the price of a product and 2) Walmart will now accept Catalina coupons that are clearly marked as manufacturer's coupons.

Walmart will accept the following coupons:

  • manufacturer's coupons
  • Internet printable coupons
  • competitor's coupons that have a specific price listed
  • soft drink container caps
  • Catalina coupons clearly labeled as "manufacturer coupon"

Provided they meet the following criteria:

  • one coupon per item
  • coupons must have an expiration date and be redeemed prior to expiration
  • change or overage will be given if a coupon exceeds a purchase
  • coupon must be for an item Walmart sells
  • coupons must be presented at the time of purchase

Walmart does not accept the following coupons:

  • Internet printable coupons for a free product
  • competitor's coupons for dollars, cents or percentage off, B1G1 free, and double or triple value

Management approval will be required for:

  • transactions with 40 or more coupons
  • any coupon with a value over $20
  • $50 or more in coupons in a single transaction

Of course it's going to take some time for cashiers to be trained on these procedures, but in the meantime, here's a nice printable version of the Walmart coupon policy that you can carry with you! I'd recommend setting your printer to draft mode or, even better, black and white when printing.

Some of you may disagree, but I believe this is a positive step for Walmart. Many of you have questioned what stores are doing with the overage from coupons in the past, so I'm thrilled to see a store finally take a positive stance on it. It seems like Walmart is really trying to accommodate coupon users!

So there you have it -- what are your thoughts? Walmart wants to hear your feedback on the new policy in this quick survey.
