Did you know that Walmart is so coupon-friendly that they will actually accept competitor coupons at their stores?
That’s right, if you have a coupon that states it can only be used at a certain store (that is NOT Walmart), you can still use it at Walmart!
Realize that you are actually price matching
What many people don’t understand about using competitor coupons at Walmart, is that you can’t just use any coupon that you want. Because Walmart is not able to be reimbursed for the coupon they are accepting, they instead ring in all competitor coupons as if they were a price match.
So don’t expect to use a $1 off Listerine mouthwash coupon or a $0.50 off Tide laundry soap coupon. All competitor coupons must have a final selling price listed.
- Acceptable Competitor Coupon: Save $1 off Windex, Only $1.99 with coupon
- Unacceptable Competitor Coupon: Save $1 off Windex
Instead of your cashier ringing in the coupon at a $1 discount, they will instead enter it in at the final selling price ($1.99) – just like they would a price match.
You can also use B1G1 competitor coupons
Walmart will also accept buy 1, get 1 free (B1G1) competitor coupons. Again, a final selling price must be listed on the coupon you plan to use.
- Acceptable B1G1 Competitor Coupon: Buy 1, Get 1 Free Christie Crackers, Only $1.50 each with coupon
- Unacceptable B1G1 Competitor Coupon: Buy 1, Get 1 Free Christie Crackers
With this coupon, your cashier would enter the price of your item at $1.50, which is the final selling price after your b1g1 coupon is applied.
You are not able to combine a competitor coupon with a manufacturer coupon
Since the Walmart Canada coupon policy states that you can only use one coupon per item, you are unable to combine a competitor coupon with a manufacturer coupon.
Keep this in mind when you are shopping. Depending on the coupons you have available, you may actually get a better deal with just a regular manufacturer coupon!
Using competitor coupons at Walmart is just another way that saving money with coupons is becoming so much easier.
Let’s hope that other stores will follow Walmart’s lead!
