Coupons at Walmart (store coupons, that is) are not something you will find in Canada. Although it would be nice if Walmart offered store coupons to use at their locations, unfortunately, they don’t exist.
Walmart doesn’t need to offer store coupons
As I’m sure you know, Walmart is already a fantastic place to use coupons. Not only do they accept printable coupons, competitor coupons and offer coupon overage (where you receive money back if your coupon is worth more than the price of an item), but they are accepting of almost every type of coupon available.
Walmart is NOT Target
When Target eventually comes to Canada in 2013, they will be considered a huge Walmart competitor, but keep in mind that Walmart is NOT Target.
What I mean by this is that although Target is going to be a huge competitor for Walmart, they are not going to win the fight.
According to the US Target coupon policy (which is rumored to be the same in Canada – we will find out soon enough!), Target limits coupon usage to 4 like coupons in each transaction, and they also will not allow cash back if your coupon value is higher than the price of an item.
This is a huge advantage for Walmart. They are not worried about Target taking over – and they don’t have to be.
Walmart coupons may eventually come to Canada
Since couponing has become more and more popular over the last few years, many stores have tightened their belt with coupon usage. Not Walmart. They are allowing more and more Extreme Couponing type transactions to take place, and continue to be a very coupon-friendly retailer.
Walmart is so coupon friendly, they even offer printable Walmart coupons in the US, and I have no doubt that they will be available for Canadians in the future.
What about other coupons at Walmart?
You may not be able to find store coupons for Walmart, but what about tear pads, coupon booklets and other manufacturer coupons?
Thankfully, you can find these types of coupons at Walmart, but be warned – they are few and far between.
Since so many people shop at Walmart on a daily basis, when coupons are found there, they do not usually last for long. So, if you see some, take a few for yourself and always leave some behind for others.
Although you won’t find store coupons at Walmart (not right now, anyway), they are still one of the best places to shop with coupons – whether you can find coupons there or not.
Remember to always keep the Walmart coupon policy on you when you’re shopping there, just in case you run into any problems when you check out.
