I posted this in the lounge in the wee hours of the morning last night, but felt that I should have posted it in the coupon section. I look and did not see anything about this being posted,so if its a repost,sry....

I know some people have had problems using internet coupons at Wal-Mart. Well they do take them.

This should solve any problems that you may have had at the checkouts in the past. Copy,paste and print this out and next time you go to Wal-Mart take this with you...Good Luck!

ive had this printed out and kept in my purse for some months now. at one point i got into (yet another) squabble with the cashier at walmart and i told them i had the proof that walmart DOES take IP coupons...they would NOT even look at the paper! even the manager! then the next time i went, they took IP coupons but wouldnt let me use "free item" coupons...that was the last time i shopped there. im sick of walmart. i'll go to kroger--at least they double coupons up to $1...i only went to walmart to grocery shop anyway so now i dont have to drive as far and kroger NEVER gives me any hassles on ANY coupons, EVER. im totally done with walmart.

Yeah that totally makes sense, I won't stress over .50, I'd much rather pay S&H on my Kelloggs.

It's not even the S&H that sucks. The shipping reason is a joke because you don't HAVE to pay for shipping at Amazon. Many other retailers as well.

The pricing doesn't make sense for you to buy the cereal online when you can find cereal on sale in so many different places at all times of the year.

I been using internet coupons at my wal-mart for a long time now until my last visit about a 4 days ago... that moron cashier acted so smart..and told me that she couldn't take my coupons because those were from internet... I don't know why in the world they are saying that...when venders like j&j and others making their coupons available on the net.... any way, thanks for the info...your post will come in handy when i go to that particular cashier..yeap i want to deal with her..not the others...so far all the others are nice.

everyone kept saying to go thru the self-checkout. well, i finally did (before i quit going to walmart) and i still had trouble...the coupons wouldnt scan and the cashier finally just did my order at the cashier kiosk thing that's near the self-checkout. she let me use them but it was still a big hassle because she was so slow about it and even paused during scanning my coupons to do someone else's whole order for them at the self-checkout!! i stood there like WTF! i was almost gonna be out the door and she couldnt finish my transaction? that walmart is full of morons anyway. i'm still sticking with kroger now. ive never had a problem with them. im sure theres some good walmarts out there, but not here! lol its too bad too because i really liked shopping there...until i got to the checkout.

Thanks for the information. I will print this out and take it to my Walmart. We don't have self-checkouts at our walmarts though they are pretty new. Hopefully they will take the coupons now!

My local Walmart stopped taking internet coupons way over a year ago. When I objected and said they had always taken them, the girl said they stopped and she called the store manager over and he said absolutely "no". Maybe I will try fighting this the next time I have a really good coupon.

Thanks for the post!
Same exact thing here BUT I go to Target almost exclusively now..

That's what I do for $2.00 or less coupons. But at my Wal-Mart, if they're over $2.00 or if it's an overage (3.98 coupon, $4.00 coupon), it requires assistance anyway. They 'beep' like it's scanned the coupon, but they still require an employee override.

Where's a good place to get internet coupons? Are you guys just talking about occasional offerings in general? Or do you have some site suggestions for printing lots of different coupons?
