Walmart BOGO coupons at Walmart

I am a little frustrated! I went to walmart and had a BOGO coupon for Degree deodrant Premium. So I got what I thought were the premium Degree there was no label that said "premium" it was confusing. I also bought Lean Pockets and had a coupon BOGO. After checking out I looked at my receipt and they didn't come out BOGO what can I do now? They have the coupons so is there anything that I can do??? I would of saved an extra 5.62 but didn't Next time I am paying super close attention thats what happens when you bring kids on a grocery trip!

You have to watch your B1G1 coupons SUPER close when you are shopping at Walmart. Whenever they scan the coupon, their register will beep and prompt them to enter the amount of the free item. However, if they weren't paying attention (just going onto the next coupon without looking up) then odds are pretty high that it wasn't just the B1G1 coupons that were missed. Their register wont allow them to scan anything further until an amount is entered for the B1G1. Either they didn't know what they were doing, didn't want to hunt for the price of the item, or just didn't care that it was missed and just wanted you out of their line so they didn't have to deal with it. I always have my son with me when I go shopping at Walmart, but I make it a point to let him play with my keys when they ring up my coupons just so I can watch them like a hawk. I make sure EVERY coupon is applied credit. Just a heads up, the register will freeze and wait for a prompt from the clerk for overage coupons as well. So if they aren't paying attention, a stackful of savings can be easily overlooked (not always intentionally).

As far as whether you can do anything about it now? Not really. Had you gone back in immediately after check out, you could have demanded your coupons from the clerk and received a correction from customer service. However, without the coupons in hand, the only thing you can do is return the products you purchased and chalk it up as "lesson learned."

I am sorry you had this experience. Not all coupon usages are such a headache (but most are). And I am able to relate to the frustration of not realizing the loss until AFTER you are already home when you inspect the receipt.

There is a lot of confusion right now at Walmart. They know the new policies but they dont want to do it. After 3 CSM's and a manager descended on me, I did not give up. I showed them my printout from Walmart.com-the new coupon policy. (always take a copy with you) I told them I would call 1800Walmart riight there in the store. The store argued about the BOGO price and the overage. The cashier closed down her checkout line.

My 34 Dial body washes were BOGO for $2.97 at Publix. The CSM told the cashier to ring one up as $2.96 and to ring up the next one for .01 I gave the cashier 34 $2 off Dial manufacturer coupons. Walmart paid me $13.98 in overagem plus the checkout line got closed. LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

Walmart is the hardest store to deal with about coupons. I have been using coupons for over 35 years and I know from experience they are the worse. Couponing is not easy. Sometimes i get taken advantage of in the couponing process. Everyone does. Not one shopping trip is the same. At another store, I stood at a cash register one time for 30 minutes while a manager tried to make up his mind about doubling my coupons. Its hard nowadays to save money. You cant give up. You win some and you lose some. You have to care care of your family.

I just started to use coupons last month and my first trip to the grocery store I learned my lesson. The cashier was in such a hurry to scan my coupons he dropped them and mixed the ones that he had not scanned with the ones already scanned then ended up not scanning a couple because they were all mixed up. Needless to say now I hold the coupons and only give them a couple at a time that way I make sure they are used correctly.

I watch very carefully every coupon the cashier rings up. I haven't had any problems at Walmart with the coupons.

walmart

I called Walmart, and asked if they took competitors coupons, they said yes they did, I then took some target web coupons there to get some items that target was out of. At the register, they told me that they would not take web coupons even though it said either online or a target store. Has this happened to others?

Target Web coupons are NOT accepted as competitor coupons at Walmart. Walmart's coupon policy states:

"•Competitors' coupons

◦A specific item for a specified price, for example, $2.99
◦Buy one, get one free (BOGO) coupons for items with a specified price
◦Have a valid expiration date
◦Are acceptable in black and white"

Target Web coupons are competitor coupons, however, they are structured in Manufacture Coupon format. They do not specify a specific price, only a value off an item. These coupons cannot be used at Walmart.
