Do NOT let a Walmart tell you they don’t accept coupons, they DO. Here is their Policy:
Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. – Wal-Mart Coupon Policy – Print it out and Ask to speak to the Manager, be sure to get his/her Full Name and document the time you were there if they still refuse.
Wal-Mart Coupon Policy
Wal-Mart accepts the following types of coupons (see guidelines below):
* Manufacturer coupons (Cents Off)
* Free merchandise (or manufacturer’s Buy-One-Get-One-Free) coupons
* Store coupons
* Pharmacy (Advertising and Promotional) coupons
* Internet coupons
* Soft drink container caps
The following are guidelines and limits:
* Wal-Mart only accepts coupons for merchandise we sell and only when presented at the time of purchase.
* Coupons should have an expiration date and be presented within the valid dates. Wal-Mart will not accept expired coupons.
* Internet coupons should be legible and say “Manufacturer Coupon.” There should be a valid remit address for the manufacturer and a scannable bar code.
* Only one coupon per item is permitted.
* Use of 40 or more coupons per transaction will require approval by Customer Service Manager.

Bloom in Woodbridge, VA just rejected my internet coupons which are manufacturer’s coupons. Bloom taped pieces of paper on each register that says, “We do not accept internet coupons.” I got into an argument with store management because of the way I was treated over this matter.
I was very embarrassed that they called over a few manager’s, the line was long, I felt like I was stealing, etc. I wrote to Bloom headquarters 4 days ago regarding my treatment but no one has written back yet. Not sure what to do.

All the stores here in Oregon have signs posted that due to fraud they wont take internet coupons. Sucks, thanks for the post I guess it never hurts to try

most store refuse to accept them

I haven’t found a store yet that accepts them. They are even skeptical of free item coupons! If they look they come from the manufacturer or the Sunday paper they will accept them, otherwise forget it.

Instead of writing to the store, try writing to the manufacturer. Maybe, if they know the store is not honoring their legitimate coupons, they can do something about getting them to revise theor policies.

I went to Walmart and had a big order and lots of coupons and most were internet.The cashier said they do not accept internet coupons, I argued with her and told her I would just take what I needed and the items they accepted coupons for, and magically a manager appeared and they do accept internet coupons as longs as they have a scanable barcode and expiration date and they say manufactures coupon, they prefer it to have an internet address but not all do. I was able to use all my coupons.

Our local grocery store (yes, we only have the one. Small town. ROFL) does not accept internet coupons either.
They have signs up everywhere stating that they will not, under any circumstances, honor them.

My Walmart will take them except if they are for FREE items. Publix takes them as well

this is the common issue in these days..

There are -still- a few local stores that refuse to accept ip’s.
at one store, they’re telling customers they won’t accept them because the manufacture will not reimburse them.
i know -for sure- a legitimate manufacture’s coupon, whether from an insert or an ip, will be reimbursed, as long as the criteria stated on the coupon, is met.
frustrating to say the least…

404 not found. Never hurt to try.

That happens to me. The cashier knows nothing, The manager needs to step up. I hope they will do something about it, to avoid the hustle and embarrassment.
