Coupon Wording

I have some coupons that say "Available at Wal-mart" and some that say "Redeemable at Wal-mart" . I was curious if CVS will take those or not ?

It's a MQ just has the wording I put above on them. I don't want to have to go rounds with a cashier over what available at and redeemable at means

Their latest coupon policy excludes coupons with another stores name on them. The cashier would be in the right to refuse them.

I've never had a problem. Even just the other day I used a coupon that printed out from a Walgreens deal! It went through with no problem.

Correct.

It's written in the CVS coupon policy that MQ with another stores logo are not accepted.

They all probably scan fine and there will always be cashiers that won't pay attention.

But the bottom line is that you have to be prepared to not use them if you're told you can't. If you argue with the cashier, you will be in the wrong as they have clearly stated that this is their new policy. So if you're willing to risk it, go for it, but don't get bent out of shape with the cashier for doing their job. For all the anger over stores not following their own policy, it's only fair that it goes both ways and that we respect when we are in the wrong and know when to back away.

I simply said I used it and it worked fine. I never once advised someone to argue with someone over their coupon policy. Nor would I get "bent out of shape" if I was told that it was against coupon policy. I think it's fine to offer advice, but please don't assume how I would be in any situation.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to be offensive...for some reason I always sound so rude when I post on my phone.

I never meant anyone was trying to misuse coupons, sorry about that. Honestly, unless it says redeem ONLY at, I don't even think it is misuse, just CVS's new policy. I guess I thought the OP was wanting to know if she should go in ready for battle (we've all been there) and I just wanted to point out that if you want to try the branded coupons, go for it, (so many CVS truly don't care) but don't think the cashier is in the wrong for doing what they're told (that's all I meant). Lately I've seen some really awful treatment of cashiers by couponers and I feel so badly for them . (Not on this board, in person while shopping.)

It's good to know what the policy is and I'm all for standing up for yourself when you know you're right (ahem, WalMart 99% of the time...).

Peace and happy shopping.

You weren't rude With all the policies it's easier to ask here and someone will help. If I battle it's usually the Wal-mafia which is really sad that you have to do that over a coupon.

I apologize - I am quick to jump to the defensive. However, lately, it seems that cashiers are treating me as if I am trying to steal straight from their pockets when I am nothing but rule and policy abiding and as nice as I can be. I guess I'm just a little sensitive right now ! Sorry about that!

Aww, what a nice resolution I hate when things get grouchy in the CVS forum - it's so rare and things can get rather feisty in the other forums Thanks, guys!

I agree Robbo! I love it when a slight bicker turns sweet. That seems to happen here at AFC a lt more often than in the other forums I have browsed. Could be why I rarely look at other forums anymore.

Glad to see that misinterpreted/unintentional remarks can be resolved.
