Will not take online coupon if it does not scan

I was just at wal Mart and picked up 2 of the glade expression. I had the $3 printed Coupon from coupon.com. It would scan and the cashier told me that if it does not scan, she could not manually enter and it and I could not use it. Is this a new policy or has this happened to anyone else? I have not had any issues with these Q at Wags. I don't know if it's their scanner or how the lady was scanning but I also had $1 Q for Capri sun and it did not scan either. The $1 reach Q went through just fine but it was not an online Q. Any idea what happened?

I had to review the coupon policy says it has to scan:/ to b valid. Walmart must be really cracking down on their rules.

I've had it happen to me as well. If you want to give them suggestions, coupons scan best:
1) Usually with the hand scanner
2) If that doesn't work, if the cashier covers up the non-usable bar code on the coupon (for coupons that have more than one!), then it may go through then.

But yeah, mine won't take coupons unless they scan too. Probably to cut down on fraud.

Does this apply to insert coupons as well?

I was told this before at Walmart. It was with a different printed coupon though and the cashier said if it doesn't scan then they can not take it. I believe they can manually enter it but they are not suppose to. The coupon policy even states that they can refuse to take them if they do not scan. I did use my $3 off glade coupons and Walmart a few weeks ago and I had no issues with them. They beeped and asked if they were it was a valid amount or something like that and all of the cashiers got it to work.

I don't think I've ever been denied use of a coupon at WM. Usually, if it beeps, the cashier just swears at the machine under her breath or calls it stupid and manually enters it.

I think the WM here has had that 'rule' for a while, if it doesn't scan they won't take it.

Mine has never taken a Q that won't scan, so it's a crap shoot if I am going to get all of my items until the cashier holds the scanner to it to see if it'll scan. I had a coupon for the Good Nites bed mats and it didn't scan for the cashier. I tried it at another store and that cashier scanned it with no problem...so it seems to be also the skill of the cashier, too.

My walmart is the same way, if the printables will not scan, they can refuse them. Depending on the cashier, I offer the same advice as above, cover one of the barcodes, use the hand scanner etc. If not, I just tuck it away for next time, have them take the item off and give it a go the next time I am in. I make some off the cuff remark about guess its time to buy new printer ink, getting a little fuzzy and let it go.

Ya know, I heard this just the other day for the first time too. One of my coupons wouldn't scan and I think it was Biore one and not a printable (but had both, and can
't remember for sure) and the cashier said something like, "well we haven't gotten the memo yet, so I am just going to vendor coupon it". I asked what she meant and she said they were getting new registers and memos coming with them that states if the coupon does not scan they will not accept it period. I was like, "fabulous, just fabulous," because couponing keeps getting harder and harder it seems.
