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!

I've used coupons a few times that I printed out online and didn't have a problem till tonight. Cashier said they wouldn't take them since 'there was a website that printed out fake coupons and stuff.' I just told her that I've used them before without problems, but she didn't even bother to listen to me.

I'm tempted to take all my shit back. I even bought stuff I really didn't need because I had coupons. Should I take them back or call Wal-Mart first? I would have only saved like $7 if I was able to use coupons, but had I not bought the stuff that I didn't need I would have about an extra $25 in my pocket.

I've noticed more and more sites stating that not all stores will accept internet coupons--I'm assuming it's because there are so many fraudulent coupons out there. I don't see WM moving to stop taking i-coupons, altogether, but if they are losing enough money, they will likely force the vendors to do something to curb the fraud. They have that kind of power in the marketplace.

I had two coupons that would not scan this week, at my local WMSC--one was the Ritter Sport B1G1 from FB; the other was the La Creme B1G1. The cashier called over a CSR, and she told her to put them through as vendor coupons and write the price on them. That's it--no big to-do over it. I'm puzzled as to why they didn't scan--that's the first time that's happened to me in a very long time. Other coupons that I printed off at the same time scanned just fine <shrug>

Seriously you should've just abandoned the stuff there (while you were checking out) if you wanted to make a statement if the cashier insisted on being an ass about IPs. We did that once...after consulting with the front end person (manager?) she insisted that they all had to be fake so we just said "screw it", left everything and bought the stuff somewhere else.

if you have problems talk to Store Manager or even Asst Manager. Try to avoid the line cashier supervisor. They tend to backup up the cashier.

Note: They might use take their talking to the supervisor or manager. You may have to wait as long as 15 minutes.

I was told today that they wouldn't take internet coupons. I said o yes you do. Said I would go to different cashier, but walmart does take them. She called super and she said no longer take them for free items from internet, but let me use my coupons. I said they need to solve problems with manufactures on this because it costs consumers to print these leggit coupons and be told can't use them. May check with corp since they are out of my state. Will let yall know results.

I have no clue what coupon you 'got tips' about but that statement is just stupid of who ever 'they' are. Fake Q's can be printed in color just as easy as B&W if that is what someone faking coupons wants to do. Idiots!

There are 177 Walmarts in California as of April 2010 (yes I checked).
Not knowing where, other than California, you are doesn't make it easy for someone else in California to offer in advise other than 'they' are wrong.
Print the coupon policy and carry it with you.

"They" would be the managers at our store. And I never said I got a tip about a specific coupon. All I was saying was that the store my friend and I work at WILL NOT accept coupons that arent in color.

Actually you did say "got tips about this coupons". That would lead one to think you were talking about ONE coupon not all coupons.
Now you are saying YOU work at Walmart?
