In NYC no store allows you to double paper coupons like they do on the show.And they started to get way more aware of what you give them.My store actually starts to check if i really bought the item the coupon indicates. I also realized my store for example doesnt mark the sales in the aisles ,or they dont give u the sale on the register and u need to argue over it with customer service. Always check ur reciept !!!! Almost every trip im about to get riped off.
in your search engine type in walmart coupon policy. several sites should come up. when you get to walmarts site print out their coupon poliy and always carry it with you to walmart.
I am so glad I found this! I am one of those ppl who started "couponing" after the show and while I am NOWHERE near as good as they are I am pleased at what I have been able to save. I cannot wait to learn more!!
@basilandcatnip - I recommend making sure that you always print your coupons in good quality. If they're not scanning, that can be frustrating, but most Walmart stores will enter the codes manually. This might sound strange, but profiling for a nice cashier can be key -- look for a younger person (usually a college student) who looks friendly and willing to assist you when needed. If worse comes to worse, I recommend calling your store and speaking with a manager to find out why their being difficult with the coupons you're trying to use. As long as a coupon is legit and meets typical requirements (bar code, expiration date, description of product), they should accept them. You may also want to consider printing out a copy of Walmart's coupon policy and carrying it with you when you shop ... I have had to use mine before to inform a cashier of the policies they did not realize where in place. You can find their corporate policy here - http://walmartstores.com/7655.aspx
@foofie5 - I'm excited to hear that you're prepping for our couponing adventures! While our savings will not beat those portrayed on Extreme Couponing by TLC, I'm definitely confident that anyone can master the techniques behind them and accomplish significant savings with minimal effort!! Hope you'll stick around for the next few weeks and keep up the feedback!!
Our Walmart is cutting way back on the coupons it will accept, it's near impossible to use them, especially the ones printed from the computer. Any tips would help.
Thank you so much. My husband just lost his job and like most of the rest of us I have to start watching pennies I have been watching the extreme couponing show. It amazing me and I wanted to do that so I started cutting coupons and trying to watch sales and I am getting so overwelmed. Thank you for making me feel better about not being a super couponer right away.
Thanks for the encouraging words! Glad you're looking forward to saving money with me!
Great post! Thanks for helping us save money in this crazy economy!
