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.

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.

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.
Not trying to be argumentative, but I respectfully disagree.hug

I don't really see the difference, as the discussion was "wording on the coupon".

Many coupons say do not double and stores that double........well they double them anyway, well aware of the wording. Many stores that double have other "deals" with manufacturers to offset doubles, but that's another discussion. So in many cases they aren't like store coupons. That's why certain mfg's put that wording on their coupons.

If it says no cash back, that's different than no "o". As long as you have other products in your cart that cover it than you wouldn't get cash anyway. WM is wacky anyway, but if they are gettig 6.00, then I imagine we will get the 6.00 too, no matter what the coupon says.

T's coupon policy is vague, on purpose too! No cash back shall be given to the guest, or something like that. A coupon may be marked down.

I had an hour long discussion on the phone with an SM that hadn't really bothered to read their manual and she agreed it was vague enough to be twisted in favor of the guest or in favor of the store. She chose me, on that particular instance, but it can go either way depending on the cashier and LOD, at any given time. Confused

More confusing wording to make longer check-outs. Frown Whatever, I just try to go with it anymore. You win some, you lose some.

The crazy show starts up in a week or two, so my guess is we'll see changes in policies all over the place again. Frown I don;t know about WM though, because they like to take sales from whoever they can.

while waiting to check-out, a lady in front of me was telling the cashier that she would like to pay for 2 boxes of capri sun and a bottle of minute maid oj that she had at the bottom of her cart on her last shopping trip that she didn't pay for. cashier told her he needed the items in order to scan them but ask her to speak to a supervisor and it ended up that she didn't have to pay for them.
anyway, got myself 6 packs of razors, 4 vicks puff tissue boxes and 3 boxes of gas-x (my last coupon and there were at least 50 boxes on the shelf). Went over to check the ts crest complete tp and it was wiped out only left was the one without the word "complete" but noticed that they both have the same upc.

That happened to me once at Target. I had a bottle of pop that I forgot to pay for and when I went back, I asked if they could just scan another one and I could pay for it. They said no, that I needed the original bottle Confused

be prepared if using the $3/2 mq, it doesn't scan but a register "journal printout or something like that".... might want to go to the vick's website and print out the "products page" to point out the vicks tissue box.

you are looking at it from a total transaction point of view. that if you have fillers to soak up the overage, then you won't be getting cash back and that is fulfilling the terms of the coupon.

razors + filler - coupon = no cash back

but the mfr is only talking about the item or items you are required to purchase to fulfill the requirements of the coupon and that you cannot get cash back if the value of the coupon is more than the item or items.

it's irrelevant to the terms of the coupon whether you purchase other stuff (filler) in the transaction or not. whether or not you have filler in your transaction has nothing to do w/ the coupon.

the only things you can take into consideration are what is in the terms of the coupon, in this case just the razors, and that you cannot get cash back after the coupon is applied to the razors whether you have other purchases or not.

razors - coupon must = oop or 0

let me use different example that may be easier to visualize. my friend is going to treat me to lunch. i cannot bring my mother along and just expect my friend to pay for my mother also. my mother was not part of the luncheon invitation.

Walmart's policy is not to markdown coupons..........so by your theory these coupons wouldn't be able to be redeemed at WM?

If your mother had a coupon for a 15.00 lunch and a 20.00 coupon for lunch then I'd say her lunch would be free. Smilie I'd also so the 5.00 could be applied to another party at the table, but I think all the above discussion is just YMMV.

The wording on the coupons is getting a bit out of control, in my opinion. Smilie

If someone purchases the razors at WM and they don't have anything to absorb the "o" then definitely YMMV.

As much as I hate to do it, I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you as well. I understand what you are saying and why you are reading into this so deeply, but "no cash back" means just that...no cash back. It does not mean that overage can't occur.

Scotch words their Q's properly for that outcome. One was just posted in the printable thread for $2/1 pop up dispenser ($5 min). If no overage was Schick's intent, then they should require a minimum purchase...but they don't. The only restriction is that we can't walk away with cash.

To each his or her own on this issue, but SD has always espoused wording as the first and foremost decision maker as to what a q means...not how we can spin or otherwise interpret that wording. Anyone is free to use the q in a manner that does not grant them overage if they so desire, but IMHO others are free to seek overage, as long as they aren't getting cash back...because that's all the q prohibits. There is no minimum purchase requirement in the wording of the q.

Again, I fully understand what you are saying, but that's not what Schick actually wrote. Far be it from us to try and figure out their intent. I would also guess that Vicks didn't intend for us to use their Q's on the Puffs with Vicks, and I would guess that Crest didn't intend for us to use their Q's on trial size toothpaste...but those Q's don't prohibit that either. Our job is to use Q's per the wording...we aren't required to figure out the intent. Everyone is free to interpret this q as they see fit, but the only wording we have is "no cash back", so folks are free to take that literally.

along w/ the wording on coupons, there is also the sd rule *Do not discuss ways to misuse the true intent of a manufacturer coupon.*

i am not spinning or otherwise interpreting the coupon. i've been reading coupons for over 30 yrs. i understand how coupons work and the terms and limits of the coupons, so i know when i have a case to argue w/ the cashier and when i don't. if you get overage, you got lucky, if the cashier says no, imo, i wouldn't argue the case w/ this coupon.

No cash back means no cash from the drawer. I probably won't use the coupon at WM, but I don't think anyone can read intent. Unless you speak to the author of the coupon, you really don't know what the intention of the manufacturer was. shake head

So, if you have a coupon that says do not double, written by the manufacturer and you redeem it at a store that doubles coupons, do you go to customer service and give them the face value that they doubled? You can argue that's an in-store promotion, but I can argue that the "o" at WM is an in-store promotion also. nod WM is driving for market share-----overage, price matching without ads, etc....... They are choosing to give consumers face value for the coupons, so I don't think anyone should judge folks or try to guess at the intent of a manufacturer.

Do you believe when that coupon go to the clearinghouse that it gets scanned at the price the consumer actually paid, even if it was marked down at Rite Aid or CVS? I don't believe that for a moment. So why make a big deal over this?

I'm not trying to be argumentative, but I respect that we all have different opinions and I think this could be argued both ways, but in a courthouse setting I'm guessing the written word would win. No cash back! If I go to WM and purchase 100.00 worth of stuff and use this 6.00 coupon, the cash drawer won't open and no cash will be given back. Anyhow, I think we should agree to disagree on this one. nod

I do not think people who redeem these are doing anything wrong and shouldn't be made to feel like they are, but here again this is my opinion and the wonderful thing about the US, is we're all allowed to have our own opinions. Smilie Again, I respectfully disagree, but I certainly agree you are welcome to voice your opinion.

Unfortunately, I don't think there are many deals to talk about right now. Board games & razors. I think that's part of the reason these debates get a bit heated at times. We all just miss the deals and hope they come back, so when a good coupon/deal comes along we hang on to it. Wink
