Walmart has issued an official Walmart Coupon Policy for 2011. You can view and print the Walmart Coupon Policy here.

Thanks to Consumer Queen

Here’s my favorite change: Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase.

Here’s what Wal-mart WILL accept:

  • Manufacturer’s coupons
  • Printed at Home coupons (internet or IP coupons)– WILL NOT accept printed at home coupons for items that require no purchase (“free” item coupons). Buy 1, get 1 free coupons require a purchase so these are valid.  Coupons MUST be legible, have “manufacturer’s coupon” written on it, have a valid remit address for the manufacturer, valid expiration date and a bar code that is scannable.
  • Competitor’s coupons that feature a SPECIFIC ITEM FOR A SPECIFIC PRICE. For example, a coupon that says: Kelloggs Cornflakes $2.99.  This is like price matching from a competitor’s ad.  They WILL NOT accept any other store coupons that say, for example: $.50/1 Tide or 50% off Tide.
  • Competitor’s “Check Out Coupons” or  catalinas. They MUST be legible, have “manufacturer’s coupon” written on them with specific requirements, a valid remit address for the manufacturer on them, a valid expiration date and a scannable bar code.
  • Soft drink container caps

Wal-mart WILL NOT accept:

  • Print at home internet coupons that require no purchase. (aka free product coupons)
  • Other competitors store coupons for dollar or cents off a product, percent off a product, buy 1 get 1 free, or double-triple off. To make this clear NO Store coupons from other places will be accepted unless they are for a specific item at a specific price. For example: you have a coupon for Tide liquid detergent and the coupon states it is to be sold for $5.99. Wal-mart will then take the coupon and sell you the Tide for $5.99.

Wal-mart Guidelines and Limitations:

    Limit 1 coupon per item

  • Coupons must have an expiration date and be used prior to expiration
  • Coupons MAY EXCEED THE PRICE OF THE ITEM. Change may be given or applied towards the cost of the basket purchase.
  • We only accept coupons for the merchandise we sell.
  • Coupons must be presented at the time of purchase.
  • We accept the following with Customer Service Supervisor or Management approval:
  • 40 or more coupons
  • Any coupon over $20.00
  • $50.00 or more in coupons in a single transaction

Well I have never tried Garden Delight pasta, but if I can score some cheap or free I’ll be trying it out soon!

These often go on sale for $1, so if your store doubles coupons, free!

These are coupons, and since I’m on the subject of those, I got an email from someone quite upset that I posted the coupon for $5 off Hannah Montana Forever DVD on  I don’t follow entertainment news much, but I guess Miley Cyrus has gone down hill.  I didn’t know this, and I bet most kids who watch the show don’t know this either.  But I do understand that many people don’t want their kids watching that show anymore.  Sorry if I offended anyone!

People tend to attach a negative association on discount coupons and feel that these are for bargain hunters only. You would think this would not be the case, but it often is. Having to “hunt” for deals is something people are not into though they move at a very fast pace. But did you know that you do not have to hunt for anything anymore because of the Internet?

You can find food coupons quickly and easily; this makes getting the types of savings you want much easier. Don’t know where to start? Then, proceed to now and start getting the type of deals you have been missing out. Actually, companies cater to you more than ever. Might as well take advantage of their need in getting new customers.

Companies are willing to go through a lot in order to show you that they want you as a customer. Even though you would think that a lot of companies would not be willing to shell out a lot of money in order to get new customers, this is not the case. Using food coupons is one of the best ways companies do to get new customers try out their product. These companies are willing to do this for any number of reasons, and they are all ones you need to jump on ASAP. Below is a list of reasons for you to fully understand why.

• They want people to experience their products without the risks of doing it.

• They are aware that people have the “customer loyalty” despite using a personal favorite.

• They have confidence in the quality of their products and are sure that you will purchase it at a regular price after trying it.

• They assume that no one will ever be willing to take a chance on them if they do not make their products a deal to start with.

All of these reasons are legit, and that is why these companies shell out billions of dollars in free online coupons and discount food coupons in order to get people on the hook with their products.

These companies are willing to go all out in order to get you on the hook, so why not take the bait?Primarily, people tend not take the bait because they do not know how to do so. They do not know how and where to find the best name brand coupons and food coupons. This is accomplished very easily, all you need is a good website resource, which will bring you all of these savings in one place. is a good start. You will find here a number of things to help you in saving money.

Available there are coupons, promotions, along with special prices that various companies use in starting to build an audience for their brand. In getting new customers, what are the other ways can these companies do? In this case, get it for less has been a good motto for companies who believe in their products so try it before you buy it.

Part of the ABC’s of Couponing Guide

There is so much information to learn about couponing! One thing I just realized I have never have talked about is writing to companies to express dislike/problems or great news about their products.

My sister once got a bad bag of Stringster’s String Cheese.  She emailed the company and complained, and they sent her tons of coupons for free string cheese!

Why would companies send you free coupons? Companies want to hear from customers.  Research varies, but some studies show only 8% of people with problems with a product complain to the company directly!  Most people just stop using the company’s product and/or take it back to the retailer.  To the company, that 8% represents a lot of people.  For every bit of feedback they get, they know a lot of other people feel the same way.  Hearing from you is invaluable to them!

Whether you write to them about a great experience or a horrible dud product, they are happy to hear from you because even if you never use their product again, they want to know what people are saying about it.  Most companies happily offer freebie coupons to people who write to them and tell them about the company’s products.  Some companies only send out high-value coupons, but that is better than nothing!

How does this affect couponers?
You can write to companies to get great freebie coupons or high-value coupons!  Always write the truth, of course.  Sometimes people pick a specific day, like Writing Words Wednesday, to write to companies.

Coupon Booklets mailed to you:

What companies can I contact?

You can contact just about any company via email or written letter asking for coupons. I once contacted Nivea telling them I never receive their “regional” coupons and they sent me a hand full of high value coupons. I was so excited! If there’s a product you use often, or one you want to try don’t hesitate to contact that company. You’d be surprised how simple it is to get coupons mailed to your home.

Want to view our Master List of companies to write to? Check it out!

Let me know if you try this and what great coupons you get!

One of my favorite things about being a “couponer” is I don’t have to go shopping on the weeks when I need to spend bucks elsewhere.  This was one of those weeks.  I got a few deals at Rite Aid, but nothing worth doing a “Guess What I Spent & Saved” Saturday on.

Do you have any shopping pictures you’d like to have featured? I have some great free coupons I’d love to give out today, so if you went shopping this week and took a picture, or even if you are going later today, email them along with what you spent and saved to me at: Deidre @ cuckooforcoupondeals DOT com (replace DOT with a .  – this is for spambot purposes – never type in your email address online or in a comment because spambots pick them up and email you garbage).  Then I’ll post it up to see if anyone can guess and win those coupons!

You can always show off your pictures on my Facebook Page, just click on Photos and it will allow you to upload your pictures and type in a message about them.   This is a fun way to show off your shopping trips if you don’t have time etc… to run your own deal blog 🙂

P.S. Remember my giveaway I am doing for the $50 Safeway gift card My husband has the most sent & accepted so far, but of course he doesn’t count.  So Morgan Rayl is winning so far with 20 Invitations Sent and 2 Accepted. So you aren’t too late – you could easily win the $50 Safeway Gift Card! Just go here and invite your friends to become a fan of Cuckoo For Coupon Deals on Facebook using the new Suggest This tab!
