Thread Details

If you don't wish to see this thread, you can click on the gray "minus" button next to the title and you'll never have to see it again! Smilie


If you want to discuss the pros/cons of shopping at Wal-Mart do that here.


Let's try to stay focused on any great deals to be had when you combine a coupon with a regular-priced item. YYMV on the actual prices at Wal-Mart but they should be fairly close. If your store has an item with a very different regular price, please put it in the Wiki so we can compare the price variations to see if this is even worth it. We may as well not even post clearanced items because that is definitley going to be widely different per store.


There is no weekly ad to work with so we're going to have to add things from what we see when we are there. So please keep an eye out when you're at Wal-Mart next for any hot deals.

Confused cash value is in a separate sentence. cash value 1/20¢

no cash back for the coupon = no overage

Like I said, it can probably be argued both ways.

I have a grocery store that doubles coupons, for a day or 2 more anyway. They double all coupons, even those that say do not double, so is this any different since it's WM's policy to allow overage? I really don't know. I'm just looking at our side, the store's side and the manufacturer's side.

Will the mfg know how much the product was?

Will WM be reimbursed full value?

If WM will be reimbursed full value then my guess is we will receive full value.

If the mfg is only going to give WM face value then who knows? Can you imagine WM adding that to the official policy? We'll allow overage on most everything, unless there's small writing on the coupon that says no cash allowed? Heck, the stores can't get a grasp for the policy as it is. shake head

My understanding is that WM is giving overage because.... it cost too much money to deal with coupons that have been ajusted down..what the coupon scans for is the amount of money that WM will be remburst..(they use clearing houses a human really dosent look at the coupon unless there is a problem with it ) if this coupon scans for $6.00 off 2 then that is what u will get regaurdless of the fine print

I noticed that, but was pondering whether it meant no cash back as in no cash value or no cash back as in overage. Frown
As the coupon specifically states "No cash back" a store could allow overage and still be within the terms of the coupon.

doubling is different b/c it comes out of the store's bottom line, it doesn't get reimbursed from the mfr. it's more like a store coupon since in reality they just give you the item for cheaper by the amount that's being doubled.

How much are the razors? That coupon excludes the 2 count and since it's for $6 off TWO, I imagine you'd be using up the entire 6 bucks.

Matters not though because the new wording on all of those high value printables we just got state:

"No cash back if coupon value exceeds retail price." EEK!
They have a 6-pack of cheapies for $1.97. Or they used to...I haven't shopped at WM in a while.

My first price match experience at Walmart. I took the Big Lots ad for Operation games and the CS rep told me it would be more than half off their current price so they won't price match it !!! Did anybody else have the same experience ? This was in the Commerce WalMart in SE MI.

Yucky It stinks of BS. Next time go you, be prepared with a print-out of their Price Matching policy. Or pull it up on your phone.

ETA - I also had my first PM experience this week with the Big Lots ad. It seems like they either haven't been trained or very few people have done it at my store 'cause they all looked very, very confused as to why I could possibly get away with saving so much money. With this experience, all I can say is that their marketing team struck gold. WM looks oh-so-very-patriotic in these hard economic times but the reality is that we still get treated like thieves when we try to use their own promotion. /rant

We have price matched at 4 Walmarts using ads from a number of stores and the only problem we have had was a cashier not knowing how to do it which was remedied real fast by a asst manager or another cashier tell them the steps to take.

Nice deal on the Schick disposables! Just went in and got 24 razors and a Mt. Dew. The cashier even gave me the extra .15 (YMMV).

Just wondering. Was going to stop by the other location and try this again with coupons from my other computer. Could I use 2 of these 6/2Q on 4 Schick bags? (for a total of 4$ overage?)

New to couponing so let me know if something like this is possible.

How the heck did they scan?

I spent 20+ minutes today trying to get these; and the coupon would not scan. Was told by CSM that "if it doesn't scan we can't take it".

I don't normally do WM (for the reason I just mentioned)...so what does eveyone do when you get a beeper?

Ended up leaving the whole order and walking out...

I successfully used 4 @ WM an hour ago. Got the dreaded 'print journal' but cashier used hand held scanner and it scanned for $6.00. Used the overage on produce as it states 'no cash back'

Mine gave the print journal at one store and asked if $6 was correct at the other, they must program them different, use overage to buy smuckers (.50 each after red plum coupon)

Has anyone checked coding on the razors? This is the same company that makes Skintimate, and Skintimate products have two manufacturer codes right now...wonder if the razors are the same way?

The Q is coded 41058, but if the razors have the other code (46500, I think, though I may have it wrong off the top of my head), the q would certainly cause a "print journal" error.

Hmmm...interesting. Thanks! The q shouldn't cause a print journal then, if the left barcode is scanned. Beats me. I'll just blame it on Wal-Mart Teehee
