Walmart FAQ

Q. Does Walmart give Overage?

A. Say have a coupon for $1/1 and the item rings up at $.97
Here's what happens:
  1. Cashier scans item
  2. Cashier scans coupon
  3. Register beeps with prompt on the screen for cashier "Correct coupon amount?"
  4. Cashier can hit the "Yes" button and register will give overage OR cashier can enter the price of the item .97c OR he/she can get all flustered and decide that you can not use the coupon because its beeping and they don't know what that means...in this case ask for a STORE manager to assist.
Q. Does Walmart accept internet printable coupons?

A. Wal-Mart Stores can accept coupons that are available on the internet for customers to print from their home computers. The following are guidelines for the stores for accepting internet coupons:
- The coupon should be legible and say "Manufacturer Coupon". There should be a valid remit address for the manufacturer, to ensure the coupon can be processed for payment.
- The coupon should have a scan-able bar code.
- The coupon should have an expiration date.
- The coupon cannot be a photocopy.
- The limit is one coupon per item, per customer. (this means per ITEM, not transaction- this is trying to say you can not use 2 coupons on 1 item)
- A Salaried Manager can refuse to accept a coupon if it does not meet any or all of these guidelines.

GREAT new coupons on Coupons.com ... from the dairy industry... $1.00 of ANY Cheese, 75 cents of ANY Milk and Yogurt...
These might not last long because I think they are part of a dairy promo. ONLY good in Idaho and Utah (they say that right on them when you print!) Will come in very handy, esp with doublers! PLUS has anyone noticed that Target drastically reduced their milk prices!!?? I was so excited, by over $1.00 a gallon!!
