Walmart: New coupon policy

Walmart just rolled out a new coupon policy:

Walmart accepts the following types of coupons (see guidelines below):

  • Manufacturers’ coupons
  • Print-at-home internet coupons
    • Must be legible, have “Manufacturer Coupon” printed on them, have a valid remit address for the manufacturer, valid expiration date, and have a scannable bar code.
  • Competitors’ coupons that feature a specific item for a specified price
    • for example, $2.99
  • Soft drink container caps
  • 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.

Walmart does not accept the following coupons:

  • Print-at-home Internet coupons that require no purchase
  • Competitors’ coupons for dollars/cents or percentage off, buy one get one free, and double- or triple-value coupons

The following are guidelines and limitations:

  • Only one coupon per item is permitted.
  • Coupons must have an expiration date and be redeemed prior to expiration.
  • Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase.
  • Walmart only accepts coupons for merchandise that we sell.
  • Coupons must be presented at the time of purchase.
  • We accept the following with Customer Service Supervisor/Management approval:
    • 40 or more coupons
    • Any coupon over $20
    • $50 or more in coupons in one transaction

The new coupon policy is hosted on their website here. I’d recommend printing it out and bringing it with you when you shop at Walmart.

I was disappointed to see that they are officially saying they no longer accept internet printables for free items. But I was happy to see they are now officially stating they’ll give overage if the coupon value exceeds the price of the item.

Thanks, Ruth!

My Walgreens Shopping Trip: Two boxes of PediaCare for $0.38 total!

I stopped by Walgreens the other night and picked up two boxes of PediaCare for just $0.38 total. Our store was out of the $5.99 boxes, so I had to go with the $6.99 boxes.

Here’s how I got them free (just paid for the tax and filler item):

Bought 2 boxes of PediaCare at $6.99 (they start as low as $5.99, but your store might be out of those!)
Bought 1 filler item (I bought a $0.10 piece of taffy — I had to add this on because my last coupon wouldn’t go through since my total was $0.02 negative.)
Used 2 $2/1 coupons
Stacked with $5/1 in-ad Walgreens coupon (took off $10)
Paid $0.38 out of pocket after coupons

Plus, I got back a $1.50/1 PediaCare coupon from the catalina machine! I’ve been hearing reports that most people are getting these, which means you can roll this deal and buy more using the catalina coupon.

Amazon: 350 Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Baby Wipes for $8.32 shipped

This isn’t the best deal on wipes, by any stretch of the imagination (I consider $1 per tub to be a pretty decent deal and $0.70 per tub or less to be a good deal.) However, if you prefer to purchase Seventh Generation wipes, this is close to the lowest price you’re probably going to see, as far as I know. Here’s how to get 350 Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Baby Wipes for $8.32 shipped:

::Set up an Amazon Mom account, if you don’t already have one (this will give you free Amazon Prime shipping on any order plus an additional 15% off).

::Add the box of 350 Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Baby Wipes to your cart via the Subscribe & Save method.

::Go to checkout and your order total should be $8.32 plus tax.

::Once your order has shipped, make sure and cancel your subscription so that you don’t receive additional shipments of this product.

Thanks, Happy Day, Happy Deal!
