New Walmart Coupon Policy!!

Hopefully they have asked their cashier to commit it to memory =)
You can go HERE to read it in it's entirety.  
I also highly suggest that you print it and keep it with your coupons.
There are some items that may be a little confusing such as:

Competitors' coupons that feature a specific item for a specified price
for example, $2.99

I am assuming this means Competitor's Coupon, such as a Walgreens or CVS Coupon that has the item pictured and the sale price on it, this does not include Target Coupons or another store coupon for dollars/cents or percentages off.

I am very excited about this new addition to the types of coupons they WILL accept:

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.

So if you get a Catalina at Kroger or Target you can use it at Walmart - just make sure it says
 "Manufacturer Coupon".

Finally in the limitations it clears up some of the issues that were not covered in the previous policy, 
the big on is this:

Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase.

This will be the big one, this is a constant issue with Walmart, if you give a cashier a coupon that is worth more than the item they will frequently give it back to you and tell you that you cannot use it instead of adjusting it down.  Now there is no adjusting - you get the overage!!!
Can you imagine having Walmart actually give you money back?

Thanks Joey!
