New Walmart Coupon Policy

Here is the new official coupon policy for Walmart. The biggest two for me are 1)they are now accepting Catalina coupons (meaning you can use Register Rewards or $ off Catalina coupons on your purchase at Walmart) and 2) that you can get overage toward your purchase if your coupon exceeds the amount of the product! Be sure to print this out and take with you on any Walmart shopping trips.

Walmart 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
