Walmart : Updated Coupon Policy (Overage Allowed!)

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

UPDATE: They revised their policy 3/16, check out the latest changes HERE.

Wow, Walmart has just recently updated it’s coupon policy with a couple of very significant changes:

  • Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase (Meaning overage will be allowed.  I look forward to trying this one out. Personally, in my past experiences, I’ve had trouble at Walmart even getting them to adjust a coupon & accept it at all, let alone getting overage on an item!)
  • Walmart accepts Checkout coupons (also called “Catalinas”) that are printed at our competitors’ registers, have “Manufacturer Coupon” with specific requirements printed on them, a valid remit address for the manufacturer, valid expiration date, and a scannable bar code.
