Coupon Policy - Walmart

Walmart: print (Walmart employees and managers don't always know or understand Walmart's official coupon policies. It is a good idea to carry a copy of it with you.)

Wal-Mart accepts the following types of coupons (see guidelines below):

  • Manufacturer coupons (Cents Off)
  • Free merchandise (or manufacturer's Buy-One-Get-One-Free) coupons
  • Store coupons
  • Pharmacy (Advertising and Promotional) coupons
  • Internet coupons
  • Soft drink container caps

The following are guidelines and limits:

  • Wal-Mart only accepts coupons for merchandise we sell and only when presented at the time of purchase.
  • Coupons should have an expiration date and be presented within the valid dates. Wal-Mart will not accept expired coupons.
  • Internet coupons should be legible and say "Manufacturer Coupon." There should be a valid remit address for the manufacturer and a scannable bar code.
  • Only one coupon per item is permitted.
  • Use of 40 or more coupons per transaction will require approval by Customer Service Manager.

Unlike most other stores, individual Walmart stores are not allowed to modify Walmart's official coupon policy. Walmarts policy is across the board. If a Walmart tries to refuse your printables just show them their policy. This almost always corrects the situation. If it doesn't a kind phone call to Walmart's corporate office at 1-800-WALMART (1-800-925-6278) will solve the issue.
