Earlier this week we talked about price matching at Walmart.
So, today I thought we would discuss Walmart and their Competitor Coupons Policy.
Does Walmart Take Competitor Coupons?
Here’s what their policy says about Competitor Coupons:
We gladly accept the following types of coupons*
- A specific item for a specified price, for example, $2.99
- Buy one, get one free (BOGO) coupons for items with a specified price
- Have a valid expiration date
- Are acceptable in black and white
We DO NOT accept the following coupons:
- Dollars/cents off at a specific retailer
- Percentage off
- Buy one, get one free (BOGO) coupons without a specified price
- Double- or triple-value coupons
So, once again, to me, that is price matching – plain and simple – nothing else.
They say they take competitor coupons that are for a specified price – they match the price.
They say they take Buy One Get One FREE coupons with a specified price – they match the price.
They say they DON’T take competitor coupons that are:
Dollars/cents off at a specific retailer – because there is no price to match.
Percentage off – because there is no price to match.
Buy One Get One FREE coupons WITHOUT a specified price – because there is no price to match.
Once again, we know that Walmart prices and the way cashiers and managers read and understand their own policies can vary widely from store to store – so keep that in mind when shopping there. You might find a cashier that takes these competitor coupons, or even a store that does. All I can tell you is what their policy is, I would say most of the stores have this part of their policy correct..
Remember to print and carry the policy with you whenever you are shopping there.
Above all, be patient & kind but firm when need be, knowing they may not have received the best training…
