Walmart Weekly Ad 1/09-1/15

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

Today is a new day… It’s a big step for me to add Walmart as a regular list to Southern Savers, but this is the #1 asked for list of all time so it’s time I finally give in. Before we go here, I need you to understand that rarely if ever are you “getting a deal” at Walmart. I’m trying to convey that fact by adding below each item where it is cheaper at other stores.

Walmart is supposed to price match any add (except B1G1 deals) and will honor competitor coupons.

I am not a regular Walmart shopper so if you are help us out by emailing in regular price deals or leaving comments below.

      Print this and take it with you if you go to Walmart. When the cashier (which they WILL) gives you a hard time… show them this. Say “if you aren’t going to follow your own store policies, let me speak to your manager and I will be calling corporate.” I promise they will let you use all coupons :)

      http://walmartstores.com/7655.aspx

    • Graysscience

      Just be careful with Wal-Mart and coupons! Although there is a corporate policy, each Wal-Mart store “decides” to make their own rules regarding coupons. For instance, I tried to use the $2 off Swiss Miss coupon this week and was adamantly told by the asst. manager that I could not use it on a $1 product. When I asked her if she would reduce the coupon, she told me no again. I told her that she could keep her product and filed a complaint on walmart.com. They are becoming so picky that I even hate shopping there!

    • CVS Lady

      As long as you keep pointing out that it's cheaper elsewhere I *guess* I can stand to see the Wal-Mart logo on Southern Savers!

      • Elizabeth

        I agree, personally I hate Walmart….they are deceptive in their advertising, and they are the devil!

        • Jo Jo

          Totally Agree!!! They are like the Chinese Devil. With the help of Walmart, they are going to control us one day. We need to support companies that are truly American. Walmart is not. And I just have to add that it is so funny how they copied Target recently by taking music and center displays out of their stores. They will NEVER have the customer services of others. Too much Apathy there!

    • Fairy5896

      Bad thing about Wal-mart is that prices vary even when two are within 10 miles!

      • Bee

        So true. And the Wal-Marts here do not compete with each other, since I think they factor in demographics when they set prices in each store.

        • Droopyd99

          Which is technically aginst the law

    • Ashleyw81

      I agree with you totally Jenny! Wal-Mart is rarely ever the best deal. Plus a big part of the reason that I coupon is so I don't have to go to Wal-Mart, haha! I know you have to give the people what they want, so to speak, and I appreciate you so much for all that you do.

    • Mdavis1205

      this is just what I have been waiting for. thanks Jenny for the Wal-mart Ads. God bless you!!!

    • Andrea Hoover

      thanks for adding this!! i've been thinking about cutting out coupons and just doing walmart but now it will be easier to compare as to what i should really do. (:

      • I did that the past few months of the year and believe me it wasn't the best idea for us. Especially when you can get free to really cheap items and they are name brand. I have also noticed my Wal Mart upping their prices so it made no sense to buy there. Good luck on your decision!

    • Chrissystupperware

      Thanks to your site I never buy grocery items at walmart, if i do its generic and with all the great deals you post with coupons who has to buy generic anymore!

    • Droopyd99

      I still prefer Publix

    • Shannon

      Hi there- just to let you know that my Walmart will not accept any competitor coupons so be sure to double check your Walmart's policies before you head in!

    • Stacy

      Wal mart….blech…..terrible customer service, dirty stores. I can't imaging why people clamor to have that on here. But that said, I LOVE Southern Savers and check in more times than I can count every day!

    • Courtney

      im torn here because since hubby works there i would get a %10 discount lol still usually a better deal every where else

    • Delora Ruth Scott

      I saved buying my milk until I went to Walmart (I had a fantastic shopping experience at Publix this week). Much to my dismay, Milk was up over $3.00 a gallon. Headed back to BiLo where Milk was $2.58. I did get a few good deals on cheese…since I was there and didn't have any coupons with me…Sargentino had some cheese for $2.00 at Walmart with .40 coupons on the package…went ahead and picked up a few of them!

    • Leah

      Jenny, thanks to you and your wonderful site, I rarely have to shop at Wal-Mart anymore! There are a few items I still have to get there, but very few! I just wanted to point out that in my area Wal-Mart does not take printable coupons, so if you head out to use printables at Wal-Mart, you need to check with your store or you may be seriously aggravated!!

    • Soft2c45

      Well I am with you ….don't like walmart and only go there to get my All You mag, but thanks for everything you do..I work 2 jobs and you make couponing so much eaiser for me.

    • Bonnie

      My local Wal Mart is not coupon friendly!!!

      • Ashley

        I've experienced the same thing! You're made to feel like you're trying to cheat the store when presenting a coupon.

        • Amen! See my other post. All this said, there are still many things that just HAVE to be bought at Walmart. I am not the BEST couponer so when I have to do major shopping or get certain things for a diet meal, Walmart it is. I DO use my coupons no matter the evil eyes I get. It's my money not theirs or the peoples behind me. Thanks, Jenny!!

      • Debra

        I agree with you Ashley. The Walmart in West Cola, SC gave me a hassle over coupons a year ago and I very seldom buy anything there anymore. I even had the manager involved but she was very rude, so I told her I won't be buying much there anymore and I don't shop there unless I have to. I really enjoy Publix, they are so friendly and helpful, especially the store in Cola, SC.

    • JL

      I HATE WALMART . I do want to try a shopping trip and buy just the free items you have listed here. Just to see if they have really changed thier attitude about coupons. Thanks so much Jenny.
      PS Thanks for the Disney store post I just got the Handy Manny construction set for $15.00 down from $40.00 It is going in the closet for necxt christmas, Never too early.

    • Melissaperone

      I think that i will use several of these suggestions bc there are so many that are FREE! and you just cant beat free!!! Thanks for all your hard work

      • Better hope they actually have them in STOCK

    • DW in GA

      Thanks for posting the 'cheaper at xxx' info. I can count on one hand the number of times I've been in Wal Mart in the last year and this just reinforces my resolve to take my business elsewhere!

    • Leahdpettit

      As someone who pairs going to grocery stores for just Southern Saver items and Walmart for other things that are not on sale, I appreciate the addition. Thank you for adding where you could get it cheaper than Walmart. That will be very helpful! Thanks for all you do!

    • Seast31

      OMG did hell just freeze over!? I can't believe Walmart has made its way to Southern Savers? Since starting to coupon 6 months ago I don't shop at Walmart unless I absolutely have to and truly expected there to be a store listed after every item. I was shocked to see there wasn't. Guess if I can get the items free there and nowhere else I wouldn't mind…at least that way I'm still giving them as little money as possible! lol

      • Laura

        A lot of those free items can be found for free other places. I think Jenny just listed those places where it was cheaper then Walmart, but not places that had the same price.

    • Walmart Coupon Policy

      Walmart 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:

      * Walmart 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. Walmart 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.

      Ok, I am a cashier at Walmart. And we do NOT take other store's coupons! That policy where is states store coupons is referring to Walmart itself. Even though we rarely have our own coupons. I use coupons, alot! And I will go to the store that I can get items the cheapest. I also figure in my 10% discount in my shopping at my work too, as well as the driving distance and gas spent to hit up Walgreens or CVS before deciding where to spend my hard earned money. But I also get extremely frustrated with the shoppers who come thru my line, screaming at me that I am supposed to take a competitor's coupon because Walmart's coupon policy says so but not one shopper has ever produced a hard copy of said policy. I have seen somewhere once before that said Walmart will take a competitor's coupon if it for a specific price for an item. Not cents off, but a set price. I don't know if that policy still holds.

      • I’ve never heard of WM taking competitor’s coupons. There WAS a misprint, however, in an ad stating that they did.

      • Yes, they DO NOT take competitors (If Florida for sure). I got yelled at when I tried (I didn't know at the time). I wish I had known so I could have NOT gotten the items there.

        • Krystal

          My store lets us use compeitators within a 7 mile Radius….we just have to present the coupon before the scan it, because they ring it up as the price. (So, cereal for $2 with a Target $1 coupon would be rung up as $1). If you forget, they get annoyed and remind you. That gives us Target, Publix, SaveaLot and Albertsons to use!

          • Krystal

            PS, I am in SW Florida…..but my other (closer) store is NOT coupon-friendly, and will only take Publix coupons.

          • Monica

            Are you in SC?

          • Monica

            Are you in SC?

        • joeykat16

          go to walmarts corporate sight and type in “coupon policy”… print it and take it with you. talk to a manager if a cashier gives you a hard time then tell the manager you will call corporate. they have to honor corporate coupon policy! i’ve done this multiple times… never had a problem since!!! :)

      • Mandi

        It was on the front of the sale ad last week. Very hard to misunderstand that one… It clearly stated they would take competitor coupons. Look through her previous post on Wal-Mart to see a copy of it.

      • CrazyCouponClipperChris

        I reviewed this week's ads and didn't see any notation that Wal-Mart took competitor ads in it, but this week's Target ad booklet did clearly state that their low price promise is that they'll match the price in any local competitor's printed ads (which applies to current, local print ads for in-store products) for the identical product before the 5% discount when using their debit or credit card.

        So the Wal-Mart addition to Southern Savers will (at best) be used to save me more money at Target, as I personally don't like to shop at Wal-Mart for many of the reasons others have listed here already.

        • They take competitor PRICES but not competitor COUPONS.

    • Starymyst

      The reason I shop at Walmart is because of convenience. Sometimes, for me its just the most simple place to shop because its all under one roof. After using coupons at other stores I really love that I can get things cheaper at those places than I would at Walmart. However, b/c sometimes I have to go to Walmart I really appreciate the fact Jenny would put this on her site. Thank you Jenny!!!!

    • Tara

      I knew it!!!

    • Mert Taylor

      Thanks for adding Wal-Mart. We only have Kroger, Wal-Mart and Piggly Wiggly where I live so it's nice to have another option.

      • Moms-coupons

        I'm with you…I don't have a Kroger, or Publix, or Bi-Lo, or Harris Teeter…it's Wal-Mart or Winn Dixe. I've tried to coupon match the ad for Rouse's or Albertsons, but I get so lost!

    • Dixiesc

      Thanks Jenny!

    • Hemda

      om are we ever going to see the end of walmart they took over!

    • jh

      My local Wal Mart won't let you use a coupon if it's more than the price of the item. Say floss is .99 and the coupon is for 1.00 you can't use it.

    • Ashley

      Jenny, I appreciate you taking the time to compile this list. Hopefully, it will show everyone that Wal-Mart is NOT the best place to shop when attempting to stretching your dollar. I have had very few pleasant shopping experiences at Wal-Mart and will continue to spend my money at places with the best deals and best customer service.

    • Katkoupon

      I agree, I don't find many deals at Wal-mart either, I have picked up a few free travel-sized deodorants and free floss. I only shop every few months, and that's when I REALLY need something I can't get at the drug/gro stores. The last time I went I tried to get more floss, they would not accept my $1 off Reach floss b/c the item was .97c. I asked if they could adjust the coupon down, the CSM said no they didn't do that. Whatever. For me personally, it's not worth the trip for a few items. But I'm sure the post will be useful for others.

    • Ipreferpublix

      Oh Jenny. I love your site, but I'm sad to see Wal-Mart added. I know people say they shop walmart bc it's easy, but it's such a bad business. Bad for small businesses and bad for the employees. If more people would stop walking in the WalMart doors, more mom and pops would have a better chance of surviving in our economy. :(

      Anyway, I do like that you are commenting on the places you can get the “deals” cheaper. ;) Nice.

      • anonymous

        People shop at Publix and Bi Lo instead of the mom and pop stores, too. Not all the evil in the world can be blamed on Walmart alone.

      • Oh and every time I DO attempt to try using a coupon there (ocassionally, for kicks and giggles, just to see if they've changed) I get shot down for one reason or another.

        Very unfriendly toward couponers, and not to mention having to deal with the other people that shop there. No thanks.

        I'll stick to Publix, Walgreens, Rite Aid and the occasional Food Lion stop

    • Dixiesc

      Does anyone know if there is a way to make the “regular priced items” section print in 2 columns to save paper?

      • Insnowmotion

        at the top left of your window you should see “file” click it…then click “print preview” then click the drop-down at the top and choose 80% or 70% or smaller until it suits you…then hit the printer icon on the top left….this will allow you to print the list smaller and sometimes will consolidate it enough to make it one page when it was 2 or 3 at full size. I usually let one side print and then flip it over getting page 2 on the back side before the printer grabs a second sheet of paper…hope this helps!=)

      I tried to use a Target coupon at Wal-mart a few days ago and was told no by the cashier. I asked for a manager and was told no again. I explained that I called several days before and spoke to a manager and was told that Wal-mart does accept comp. coupons within a 50 mile radius. I hate to get conflicting information>>>>and Jenny is right. I wrote down the prices of all the thins I bought at Publix and then went the next day to Wal-mart and price checked every single thing and compared it with the coupons I had used at Publix. I found Publix deals to be 27.8 % lower than Wal-mart.

      • Birdy

        So did they let you use it??? My Wal-Mart is really bad about taking printed coupons!!! They flat out told me one day that they did not accept a printed coupon!! I do think it is usually the cashier, because I have heard of several other people who have had no problems at Wal-Mart :o)

      $1 off Post-It Notes SS 1/09 in my insert is only good on $2+ items.

    • Vivianmarie244

      Be very careful when you buy perishables at Wally world!! I can't count how many times I bought things there that were expired. One time I bought some hostess cakes that were 3 months expired!!!! Since SS, I rarely darken there doorstep. :)

      • Laura

        But that can happen anywhere. I remember a trip to Earthfare a few months back where all of their Annie Naturals salad dressings were expired. And not a little expired, but like 3-4 months. Since then I do not buy salad dressing from that store, and I can't help but think of those people who did buy dressing without looking and probably ended up with food poisoning.

        • Or not, since expiration dates are not mandatory and often have nothing to do with it poisoning you and more to do with quality.

      • Laura

        And I also accidently bought a box of expired cereal at Harris Teeter a few weeks ago. I didn't notice till I got home and noticed a promotion for Marley and Me movie tickets on the box, which of course came out 2 years ago.

    • Lyvismommy

      I am from a small rural town in South GA, with very little in our town besides Walmart. I went from going to Walmart weekly (sometimes daily), to hardly ever going at all now. Most people in my town say they can't save money on groceries, b/c this is all we have. They are wrong. I drive almost an hour to get to a Publix and Winn Dixie every couple of weeks, and save enough to pay for my gas money and still beat walmart's prices.
      This is nice to have though, to make sure I don't miss any awesome freebie deals! Thanks for all you do!

    • Melinda

      My Walmart in Travelers Rest, SC does not take competitor coupons. The only time I shop at walmart is when I really need a product and it's not on sale at Publix or Bi-lo. Typically they beat the regular price by at least a few cents at the supermarkets. Before SouthernSavers, I shopped Walmart every week. Now it kills me to pay their prices.

    • One of my new year's resolution was to stay away from this place as much as possible. There are two items I can think of that only come from here but I am looking into changing brands on those to prevent even those. I love Sam's club but Wal Mart is a completely different story! Thanks for the great work Jenny!!

    • Florida Lady

      Sad to see this has become a bash on Walmart session. My husband works there and he would be the first to point out that they don't always have the best customer service. That being said, I think you all could agree that at some point you've had a bad experience at Target, Walgreens, CVS, Publix, or wherever you may shop…some times it depends on the region and whether the cashier is having a bad day or not. I think the key point is the comparison shopping aspect and that you shop where you feel comfortable.
      And P/S It's sad to hear that Wal-Mart has ruined all the Mom & Pop's businesses of the world (sarcasm). How come no one ever mentions all the burger shops that building massive amounts of McDonalds has put out of business? I'm just saying.

      • Tony

        I don't think you can call the truth bashing. It is proven in Jenny's very first ad posting that you are generally going to get far better value for your money at other grocery and drug stores “if” you are a avid couponer. This is a site for just that “couponers”. So, it's simply stating the facts. Also, I am a free market guy and not going to blame wal-mart for putting anyone out of business. However, your comparison of McDonalds putting burger shops out of business is quite weak. How many businesses can you point to McDonalds having a direct impact on a business closing…dare I say few and if there are any…it's focused in the realm of burgers only. Wal-mart has influenced virtually every market in retail…hardware, drugstore, grocer, general store etc… Also, one last thing…Wal-mart like every thing is a living orgnization and like all of them,,,it will not be successful forever. They all come and go over time. I would just like to see Wal-mart focus on the customer first for a change. If they did…that might just survive even longer.

        • Nice to see another guy on here. :-)

      • Melissa

        Jennifer, I totally understand your loyalty with your husband working at Walmart. And I have to say that I don't (usually) have anything against the employees at WM. However, they DO have the worst customer service of any place I have shopped. They don't care how many customers are in line, you're just expected to wait. They have fooled many people in thinking their prices are lower when, in fact, a comparison often shows that other stores are cheaper – even without coupons. (Milk and eggs are outrageously priced at our WM.) ANd then, yes, they do tend to come in to a town and run out small businesses. I don't think it's the same thing as MacDonalds, for example because WM wants to take over for the fast food place, the grocery, the car repair shop, the phamacy, the toy store, the home improvement store and so on. They make it hard for any other business to compete with their claims of lower prices but when the small competitors are gone, who's going to help the customers by giving good service?

        • Laura

          Ugh, that reminds me how much I hate Wal-marts oil change. I always go thinking its going to be cheap, but once I get there and see the $35 price for a basic oil change I make a quick U-turn the hell out of that place. I usually end up going to the Valvoline across the street since they're about $15 cheaper.

          • I get $19.95 oil changes from the DEALER! Wow.

      • Yes, but when I have a bad experience at other stores they actually do something about it, unlike Walmart where the employees just stare at you like you are speaking another language.
        Walmart is known to treat it's employees, customers, and vendors horribly, as well as having a whole host of unethical issues about it.

        The sad thing I am seeing in this thread is the number of people who work for Walmart who say something along the lines of what your husband said “They don't always have the best customer service” or above where one states the employees aren't trained. My question is “why not?” Why does Walmart just accept it's crappy nature and why should we as consumers just accept it? All in the name of their supposed “low prices.” If Walmart actually cared they would do something, but they don't because they know they have gotten all the mindless droves hooked on their store because they perceive it to be lower priced and “convenient.”

        I don't think there has been a single Walmart I have ever gone to that hasn't made me want to bash my head against the wall with their lack of stock, quality, cleanliness, customer service, and trained employees.

      • Droopyd99

        I'm glad someone said what everyone was thinking!

      • For me, it is not Walmart the employees. The biggest problem for me is that they are always understaffed. The Walmarts in my hometown, the Walmarts in my college town, and the Walmarts where I am at now are all the same. They have 40 registers, but only 5 of them are open.

        • jules

          EVEN during the Christmas rush! They had only 2 lanes (one was the tobacco lane and one 20 items or less). If they are NEVER going to open that many lanes – then why bother with the expense of putting them in? wouldn’t it be a better use of floor space to put something else there – not to mention the cost of the registers….is it so we can THINK they might open one?…..

    • Kristen

      i understand some pople have no chose but to shop at walmart because of lack of store options. I still feel defeated, by the devil walmart.

      • Kristen

        Sorry, I meant to say choice.

    • And, if I can possibly make anyone's experience at Walmart easier..I am a 16 year associate. There is across the board in every store a lack of communication, a lack of staffing, a lack of sufficient training and an overall lack of moral. With that said, I do enjoy my job. I enjoy seeing my regular customers and helping them the best I can. I have worked several positions in my store during 16 years and being a cashier again is actually quite enjoyable. Most issues with coupons will probably fall under “lack of training” on the cashier. Don't blame her. If the register won't “scan” the coupon, there are other ways to get the coupon accepted. They just don't train the cashiers how. I see most cashiers running coupons over the flat scanner, which mostly does not work. It will try and scan both barcodes you see on your coupon, therefore coupon won't go thru. The cashier's best bet is to the scanner gun. And again, if they've been properly trained as to which barcode is the correct one to scan to begin with. Our registers also have a vendor coupon key, that can be used to manually enter a coupon. Again…lack of training.
      One more thing also. At the end of the day, when the cash tills are counted ALL coupons are treated as cash. So when customers have “scammed” us, with expired coupons, coupons with expiration dates “cut off”, or other store coupons, we are held accountable for that…as in a verbal coaching, or eventually a write-up.
      I follow this blog, as well as several others. I want, and need to save every penny I can…we all do! But Walmart is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. The local people working in your local store are just trying to do their job, trying to earn a living. They need everyone's support. Trust me, after 16 years I know that what customers see in our stores is usually not our fault…it's the fault of higher up decisions that we are desperately trying to make work.

      • I know most of the problems there are probably not the floor employees but the higher-ups. (Too bad people don’t think that way about education). But I guess since they’ve been able to fool most people into thinking that they have the lowest prices (and their “everyday” prices ARE actually lower than the everyday prices at the other stores on at least the aisle items), then they probably think they’re good.

      • Bee

        The cashiers at my Wal-Mart have usually been very nice. There have been a couple of instances, but it was CSM’s. I shopped Wal-Mart for years and years and can remember when they actually did have the lowest prices, coupons or not. I worked for them back in the early 90’s and the chain was much different then.

        The Wal-Mart closest to me began to deteriorate extremely quickly in customer service once it became a superstore. And for some reason it seemed to attract scarier customers. So, with the occasional run-in with the employees and customers acting like they were raised in an open barn, it just got to be too much. Then prices started creeping steadily upward. I literally could not afford to feed my family. I started looking for alternatives and went to Aldi first. I was so thrilled with my grocery totals there. Then I found Southern Savers and haven’t looked back. Like others I will go to Wal-Mart if I need something like dog food. But I used to spend about $600 per month there and get treated like crap and have to endure the whole horrible store experience. Now I spend about $300 per month at Kroger and they act like they like customers!

        What’s more, if I go to several different areas of town, it’s like they never make two stores the same. They have different products, etc. I might shop Wal-Mart more if they would be consistent. But don’t make me go to the part of town where people make $500,000 per year just to get an organic product. Middle class people eat them too.

        So, I can feel your pain about wanting Wal-Mart to be it’s old self. But upper management is going to need an epiphany and I don’t see that happening.

      • Ecenterprises

        I must say I will not shop Walmart again. I went to two different stores and they would not take my printed coupons since they say they do not know if they are legitimate. I have never had problems at any other store. I spoke to the manager at both stores and was told this is a company wide thing. I also found many things out of date. I bought some meat that showed a few more days before it was out of date. It was all bad. The smell was horrible. I love Publix and will shop there all the time. They go out of their way to help you anyway they can.

        • The amount of fraudulent internet coupons out there is overwhelming. My wal-mart in particular was hit extremely bad. However!, we still take printed internet coupons for cents off. We no longer take printed internet “free” coupons. Neither does my local Ingles grocery store. Most fraudulent ones are pretty obvious though, they are too extreme of an item. Also, I personally do not buy my meat at my Walmart either. I just like to know there is a “meat” dept. I buy my meat at Ingles.
          Every store sends their coupons in to a coupon clearinghouse for reimbursement. This is when/how any particular store finds out they have been scammed. We were sent a very long list a few months ago of the fraudulent coupons that we were hit with…was ridiculous!! That list now gets updated on a regular basis. Dishonest people out there have made internet couponing more difficult for all of us who are just trying to save a few pennies.

      • guest

        Yeah, maybe….but you cant beat CVS!!!!!

      • But the question is why? Why doesn't Walmart actually train their employees? Why doesn't Walmart actually try to improve their customer service?

        If they actually listened than people wouldn't have so much negative to say.

        • At a store level, we do the very best we can, believe it or not. Unfortunately, our direction on what and how to do things comes from higher ups(management) and they receive their direction from even higher up. The trickle down of this is affecting customer service. Those of us working in the stores know this but the higher ups…honestly don’t care. The attitude is that a cashier is fully trained and competent within about a 3 month time frame. That is not correct. I am a 16 year associate who is maxed out on pay. They would gladly be rid of me and bring in 2 new hires at minimum wage. Those new hires will not have the know-how that I have worked so hard at obtaining. Those new hires won’t view the store as “their” store as I do. Those new hires won’t try and treat each and every customer how they wish to be treated, they are just grateful to have a job. No one knows unless you work at a Wal-mart how frustrating it is to be short staffed, no one there to stock the merchandise, to rely on computer scheduling based on last year’s sales to schedule when cashiers are needed. It’s all very demanding. We get frustrated trying to do our best and only feeling like we’re getting knocked down at every turn.

          • Emyalf_mk

            I have a question for Leslie. As previously posted, Wal-Mart is not the same store that it was in the 1990’s regarding price, selection, and service. I never become irritated with the staff because most people are “doing their job” as they’ve been told. Once at a summer job, I was so infuriated with the bosses, I took a long lunch. As I left, I grunted to the driver, “some people are so educated they’re stupid.” That’s the problem with Wal-Mart. The solution is people like us writing letters to district and corporate. Management continues to ignore the issue as long as we forgive with our pocketbooks. I understand many people only have Wal-Mart to shop. Hopefully those people have store employees like Leslie to make it tolerable. Now a question: where would I write to complain about the SC Upstate stores?

        • jules

          and why dont they ever have an adequate number of lanes open? again, I think it is definately a management problem and I feel sorry for the poor people who work there – because they end up having people be rude to them…which is probably why most of them have an “attitude”. Which is why I AVOID it at all costs. Pehaps if enough people say – you know, this is just not acceptable….then they will change. I do realize that each store is different – and not all have these problems….just all the ones near me.

    • Suzanne

      I shop at Walmart all the time and save a bundle every week with the coupons that I use. We actually have 2 Super Walmarts within a 20 mile radius of where I live and one I absolutely adore and the other one is horrid. An interesting note, they don't charge the same prices for the same items, so people do your homework before you go and enjoy. My super saving item this week was on Maruchan Yakisoba noodles (50 coupon recently in the Smart Source booklet) and they sell for 52 cents at my store, so I got them for 2 cents a package, not too bad!!!

      • Laura

        But I get things like that for absolutly free at the grocery store.

        • Bryarsmom

          DITTO, Laura-those carb loaded noodles are free at Publix-dbled Q's :)

          • Leighann Howell

            Alas, for those of us who have no Publix. 2c each is better than 52c each.

        • Leighann Howell

          That's great if you have grocery stores nearby. Not everyone is so lucky.

      • Mccrited

        If you took those Maruchan coupons to Kroger or Publix-they double-you would make money. Publix sells them for .79 double the coupon to $1 and you make .21 each.

        • Anonymous

          she may be in Florida like I am. We don’t have Kroger. We do have Publix but in Florida we can’t double coupons at all. Boo :P

    • Anonymous

      Jenny – THANK YOU for posting this. I live in a relatively small town in Arkansas where our only options are Kroger, Walmart, Walgreens, and 2 independant grocers. We have NO CVS, Rite Aid, Target, Publix, Harris Teeter, etc.

      I shop the deals where and when I can, but have found that for things that I need that are not on sale – Walmart is my best choice for the cheapest price. It's kind of depressing to see all the deals that are out there that I'm missing out on…..but it IS really helpful to be able to at-a-glance see coupon match ups and other store comparisons.

      THANK YOU for all your hard work! :)

    • Melinda

      Jenny: One more note! I have relatives that live in the mountains of NC and believe or not, Walmart is all they have within a 50 mile radius. I have continue to spread the word about SouthernSavers, so some of your Walmart ad requests may have come from them. I really hate it for these people. They used to have BiLo and Ingles, but now only Walmart. It's really sad!

    • Ashley

      Wal-mart is a joke in my opinion. There is no way that I can save a penny at that place, it is just a trap for money. Ever since I started couponing 13 months ago I think I have stepped foot in Wal-Mart only twice and that was only b/c I was out of town and WM was the ONLY option. I have spent so little money at Publix and CVS and I plan to keep it that way! But kudos to you for venturing out into something new but I think that if people want to save money they need to learn the “couponer way” and avoid WM at all cost.

    • Insnowmotion

      I am a single mom of three and used to be an avid Walmart-goer, thinking that I was getting the best deal because I had very little time and a slim budget. BOY WAS I WRONG!!! Very rarely do I EVER shop at Walmart anymore…I agree with the negative effects it has had on small business, the poor quality of their meats, baked goods, produce and perishables. I now save a TREMENDOUS amount of money by shopping mostly at Publix because they take competitors coupons. I LOVE LOVE it there…the people are friendlier and the quality of their items is top-notch. I will NEVER go back to Walmart! NEVER!

      • Bryarsmom

        Publix is number 1 in quality, efficent customer service-I've found that to be consistent in both our GA stores, as well as FL.
        They go out of their way to serve their customers well.
        And who can top their fab BOGO???

    • April H

      I am new to couponing and just this week was my first grocery trip…saved over $75.00 at Winn Dixie. Before I always shopped at Walmart because in the tiny town I live in you have Walmart, Winn Dixie and Piggly Wiggly although I hear a Sav-a-Lot is opening soon. I only bought B1G1 deals at Winn Dixie, got my meats at Piggly Wiggly (who are not very coupon friendly by the way-but the meat is cheap) and got the rest of my stuff from Walmart but found that the great value walmart brand is cheaper unless you have some coupons at the other stores in town..thinking about driving an hour to get the deals offered at CVS, Walgreens, and Publix so I can STOP going to Walmart! Thanks Jenny for your hard work!

    • Gigi

      I only shopped in Walmart even though I hate Walmart because I think the price is much higher in Publix. But since I've started couponning, I just realized that I can afford to shop in Publix. Since then I've rarely gone to walmart except Pet food and meat. Southern Saver starts to post walmart; I guess I will only buy as close as free item in walmart. Still Thanks for Jenny posting Walmart deals.

    • ShopperSteph

      I too will NEVER go to Walmart again. I thought I was getting a better deal until I compared saled prices and started using coupons + buying what was on sale and stocking up. I used to spend $130+ a week there. Now I spend $50-$80 at the grocery store and drugstores. The GV brand tastes bad and is poor quality. Not to mention the horrible customer service and dirty stores. Never again!! Thanks Jenny for freeing me from Walmart forever!

    • ash

      Just fyi: Our walmart will not accept printable coupons.I like seeing all the places I can get everything cheaper. It helps me look less crazy when I tell people their prices are too high :)

    • Melanie

      Thanks Jenny for adding Walmart. I only go for after holiday clearance (like getting an $88 dollar 7 foot pre-lit Douglas Fir Christmas Tree for $22 a week ago! I'm still so happy about that!) but it will be helpful to check their ad each week to see if there's a “worthy deal” if I'm going there for some other reason anyway. That being said, they have rejected most of my coupons in the past so….we shall see! Thanks again!

      • Sandy

        I got a Christmas tree stand last week for $1.29!! :)

    • Brandie

      I would rather have teeth pulled than shop at wally world.
      The cashiers and customer service horrid.
      The stores are dirty.
      Check-out time is off the charts.
      And there are not friendly and smiling faces to assist you.
      AND IF YOU DO USE COUPONS, they treat you like a criminal and none of them are on the same page as far as a coupon policy.
      I will throw my coupon away before I try to use it @ Walmart.
      Need I say more :)

    • 129hutch

      I'm not going to sit here and bash Wal-Mart. I, like most here avoid it like the plague.However, I just hate the fact that this makes Jenny have even MORE work to do so I'm going to take the opportunity to thank Jenny again for EVERYTHING she does.

    • All I can say is WOW. This has become a let's bash Wal-mart forum. I am really disappointed. I have had bad experiences everywhere, but I would never say ALL cashiers are horrid. I am going to see if I can remove my earlier posts….obviously no one here will take them, or me seriously.

      • Maybe not all cashiers are awful, but I think 95% of the time I have shopped at a Walmart they have been. While maybe once at Publix or Target have I had a problem. And I can actually get customer service at those stores…

        Perhaps what should be concerning is that this many people have something awful to say about the store….

        • momto2boys

          I agree, it seems every time I shop there I encounter rude employees. Cashiers who would rather socialize that do their job, no help finding anything….etc etc. The list goes on and on.

      • Sandy

        Leslie, I found what you wrote to be very helpful!! I'm disappointed to see all the negativity too. There are a lot of people that like shopping at Walmart. It's convenient and offers a variety of products. Hopefully, within a few weeks the haters will have gone away, and the comment boards will be used to help people find a great deal!

      • Senoia Guest

        Yeah, WOW…I still love my wal-mart, but thanks to Jenny I do not spend so much there. I have had bad experiences everywhere! And actually, when you average it all out, Wal-mart's staff has been just as friendly, if not more than at other places. I personally have never been treated badly because I use coupons at wal-mart. Now, wags, and rite aid…..there have been a couple of incidents, but I still shop there. You cant hold one incident against the entire company. and like Lori posted. the parking lots are ALWAYS full. someone is shopping there ;)

    • Lmeaker

      Although I personally would rather go to 10 stores and get everything I need rather than going to Wal-mart. This post does bring up a good idea for a helpful tool. For those of us who have access to multiple stores, it would be nice to have a tool here that would compare prices between stores. Yes, I admit, I have become totally dependent on this website to do all the hard work for me! But I do appreciate it so much!

    • Lori

      Wow, it seems like no one wants to admit to shopping at Wal-mart but the parking lots are always full and as Jenny said it was the number one requested store to add to the list on the website so….. someone is shopping there. LOL

    • Wendy

      Walmart is not my favorite place to shop because I can usually get a better deal somewhere else. And, yes, I've had a couple of cashiers treat me as though I'm trying to steal by using coupons. (I've also had that happen at a Kroger store in town, thankfully there are 2 more so I don't frequent that particular one anymore). However, I know there are people whose choices are so limited that Walmart is their best option most of the time, so I'm sure this addition will be very helpful. I also realize that when a company doesn't bother to train it's employees on the coupon policy, it's very hard for a cashier to know what they're supposed to accept. When I do need to go to Walmart, I've learned most of the cashiers who are coupon-friendly (and the times they're usually working LOL) so I normally don't have any issues. And the cashiers at my local Walmart are really good when it comes to price-matching ads from other stores. I've been doing that longer than I've been couponing & could count on 1 hand the number of times I've had problems.

    • MichelleK

      Thanks Jenny. I'm sure she is posting this for people that have few options….I used to live in a town that only had Walmart. I only shop there to get my monthly issue of All You.

    • ACarpenter

      I was also NOT a walmart shopper, but we have moved out of the Atlanta area and I no longer have a Publix or a Kroger so I find myself at Walmart. Thanks for posting their “sales”-I will be using it for sure.

    • Jlham

      Thank you so much! Wal-mart is the only other option than going to HEB here in San Antonio and HEB is much more expensive than Wal-mart based on my own shopping.

      • Jlham

        And for everyone who says Wal-mart runs out competitors, well it may be true in some places, but here in San Antonio, HEB ran out all the competitors way before Wal-mart started selling groceries here. I would love to shop at HEB, but unless you want one of their buy this, get that free deals the price is much higher than Wal-mart.

    • Thiamaria

      It did say in Walmart's ad 2 weeks ago that they accept competitor's Qs, but this has turned out to be something that Walmart has tried to retract- saying that they only accept competitor coupons w/the price of the item listed (like Walgreens store Qs). Anyhow, Paul over at iheartthemart has been going back & forth w/them to try to get the REAL policy.

    • Jlham

      Wow, just read all the negative comments about Wal-mart and that is awful. My Wal-mart has very friendly employees and has ALWAYS accepted ALL of my coupons. Have never had a problem with it in Fayetteville, NC or San Antonio, TX.

    • mrs. b

      FYI…sticky notes coupon in ss 1/9 states…$1 off purchase of $2 OR MORE…since they are $1 @ walmart..you have to buy 2 to use the coupon…so instead of getting them for free, you get them at b1g1

      For comparison sake, I did the CVS deal with the toilet paper, Kleenex, and paper towels. I compared my CVS cost to the equivelant of purchasing the same items through this sales flyer. CVS: $10, Walmart: $29. I'm always wondering if I'm getting the best deal on my paper products. This week, the CVS deal is pretty darn good.

    • senoia guest

      I was a regular wal-mart shopper until last year, when I started couponing again.I have gotten some great deals over the years. You have to COMPARE the prices on the different sizes, as sometimes the best deal depends on which size you buy. And sometimes it varies week to week. I have always shopped B1G1 at publix, but if I didnt have time to go to more than 1 store, then Wal-Mart's one stop shopping is hard to beat. Especially if you are paying full price, and NOT using any coupons. Where else can you get an oil filter for your car, a gift for your niece's bday,cute shoes for the outfit you will wear, the latest cd, AND your groceries?
      But with coupons, it definitely IS alot less expensive to “play the field” I have learned to love CVS and WAGS, two stores I had only been in once before discovery of this site.
      I still go in to get things I cant get cheaper anywhere else.(Dog food, rawhide chews, boneless shinless chicken breasts(normally 1.99-2.50 lb)and my bottled water, and coke, unless of course they are on sale somewhere else.
      I am sure Walmart has missed the $$$ I used to spend there. I spend less than 25% of what I USED to;) (thanks, Jenny!)
      I have never had any problems using couponsat Wal-Mart.(probably because I was spending so much at a time, and only had a few coupons.)
      AND I noticed yesterday, that their checkout advertising monitors advertise that they ACCEPT internet printed coupons. and the new ads seem to be directed at couponers. It seems they have heard us, and realize how much business they have lost. I was spending an average of 150.00 a week, at Wal-Mart alone, now its MAYBE 150.00 a MONTH, and my overall budget is now about half of what it used to be. (I tend to be brand loyal on certain things, or it would be even less. If buy the wrong brand of ketchup, they wont eat it…well , I wont either;)But my current budget allows me the freedom to buy those things at the BEST price.
      I still love to wander through and check out the clearance items, but it's WONDERFUL to keep all of that $$ in my pocket
      Bottom line , you have to do you your homework, and RESIST temptation, to save money at Wal-Mart.

    • Rudydoescakes

      Thanks you sooo much. This is all I have within and hour of me:(

    • L Sherrill

      please read Jenny's post above very carefully she said she wants you to see that at walmart you rarely if ever get a good deal she is just trying to make her point to all the people that requested she add walmart……..I personally would never walk in to another walmart thanks to this website and all the wonderful things Jenny does i have been free from that place for about a year………….I am so proud to say that………my name is Lisa and I am not a walmart shopper :) yipee………….

      • CrazyCouponClipperChris

        OK, I LOL at that last line.

      • JenninAtl

        Love it! My name is Jennifer, and I am not a Walmart shopper.
        (Rather a Walmart hater)

      • Someday273

        Love it also!!! My name is Tammy – and I am not a walmart shopper!!!!

        Since I found Southern Savers I might have been there once this past year. It costs too much.

    • Guest

      I'm NOT store loyal. I go where I can find the deals. I don't find that using coupons is very helpful at Wal-mart but I've found Smokin' Hot clearance prices at Wal-mart that no sale and coupon match-up can ever top. (Toys reg 10-20 for $.50-$1, Shoes and clothing for $1, School supplies $.05-$.10, My store has gotten better with more cashiers. I won't run to 10 store for 10 different things If I need socks, thread, fish food, cereal and a birthday gift; Wal-mart it is!

      Thanks Jenny for this.

    • CrazyCouponClipperChris

      Jenny sure got folks typing up a storm today. Perhaps that was her master plan. ;-)

      Now if I can just convince her to take a trip to Orlando, Florida to offer one of her classes . . .

      • FarmerJill

        I second that CCC Chris!!!! I'm about 30 min away from Orlando but would GLADLY drive or help set up an entire series of classes with Jenny to help make her trip worth her time!!!!

        • Meghan

          Ditto to CCC and Farmer Jill :)

        • sealey5

          Yes it would be awesome if Jenny comes down here! I am in Davenport, which town are you from?

        • Zimmge

          I also live about 45 minutes from Orlando, but will have 10-15 recruits in NO time at all –no matter where the venue will be. Come on, Jenny! We'd love to see you

      • I'm pretty sure we are working on it for March or April. We just need help finding a location!

        • FarmerJill

          That is GREAT news!!! If I can do anything to help.. please let me know! YAY!! Jenny is coming to FL!!!!! I'm not in Orlando but will be able to fill quite a bit of your class with friends and ladies from church :)

        • Leighann Howell

          Come down to Biloxi, MS, Gulfport, MS or Mobile, AL. We folks down here need all the help we can get – I think this is the least coupon and sales friendly place in the U.S.!

      I am curious if people are finding that their Walmart store will take Internet/printed coupons. I know the one in North Carolina nearest to me would not.

      • According to their policy, they are supposed to take them. You need to email corporate or speak to a manager. I use printed coupons there occasionally.

      • Scarboroughs

        I used them here in Charlotte yesterday… with no problem at all

      • Bamasaver

        When I visited my WalMart last week, my cashier mentioned they will soon stop accepting Internet coupons because of all the fraudulent sites out there.

      • Dsgffh2

        The Asheboro store stopped taking internet for a while, but they are now.

    • Coupongirljill

      Did anyone else notice that the XTRA coupon is printing in spanish???

    • mrs. b

      my walmart makes you bring the internet coupons to the manager so they can look them up in a book to tell if they are fake or not..is this really worth it???

      • Keldansmom

        My Walgreens does that too!! Makes you feel like a criminal…

      • Bee

        Oh my goodness; the first time I was asked to do that I would run across the street to Kroger.

    • FarmerJill

      I'm in Central Fl area and the two Walmarts closest to me have taken the internet coupons I've used in the past, HOWEVER, they aren't really nice about it. I don't know if I will ever be in the mood to test out what they say their coupon policy is.. I play by the rules and I'm not trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes.. just save some money for my family. I really, really try to not make Walmart any part of my normal shopping routine. I'd rather support Publix – who does so much for the community. All that being said, thank you so much for all your hard work Jenny :) You make it so much easier to save our hard earned $$$!!!

      • Jacketfan24

        Just for the record, Walmart does a lot for the community. I work for Walmart and part of my job is community outreach. Each store has a budget for donations for local organizations that request them, such as schools, hospices, scout troops, churches, etc. They also contribute tons of money through Walmart foundation through each store; we chose which charities our store donates to. This does not include the money raised for the local children's hospital through Children's Miracle Network (which Publix does support but doesn't come close to the dollar amounts that Walmart raises…my small store raised $20,000 in just 6 weeks for CMN). Most people are completely unaware exactly how much Walmart does in the community.

    • You should mention that these deals are only good if Walmart accepts your coupons. The one here seems to look at all of us like we're thieves and they hate printable coupons.

      I went to Wal-Mart the other day for a cable cord… that was fine. But as far as household stuff and groceries, never again. Their whole store sucks though- my future MIL got my fiance and I some silverware from there on clearance, turns out half the pieces of it were MISSING… someone had returned it and they put it back on the shelf with hardly any spoons and forks.

      Oh, and just going into Wal-Mart is stressful. I'd rather go to CVS, Rite Aid, or a real grocery store any day. I get better service and don't wait as long.

    • Woodscloset

      Thanks for posting the Wal Mart list. I only get a few things at Wal Mart, but I do have to go. I am not as fortunate as some who have a Kroger, Publix, or Winn Dixie to go and get all those fantastic deals (very jealous). With only Bi Lo and Harris Teeter to choose from, Wal Mart helps me out a lot! So please keep that in mind when posting the list……so jealous of all those stores down in Atlanta……you guys have EVERYTHING!!!

    • mightymousemom

      Thanks for all you do, but Walmart just doesn't do it for me, never has, never will. I remember taking in a competitor ad for a toilet paper price match and they told me they would not match a competitor ad price and also take a manufacturer coupon, just totally rude about it…I despise them!

    • No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      :-)

    • Deana

      My local stores are very expensive and carry very little organic or specialty items and you always have to check the expiration dates before purchasing! 25 miles away is a Wal-Mart that I used to go to because I worked in that town.They usually had competitors sales ads HANGING AT THE REGISTERS so if you told them to compare prices they would! I'm not sure if they still do or not. And also my local stores won't take printed coupons but Wal-Mart will. I like to support smaller stores but for budgeting and quality produce, etc I do shop at Wal-Mart especially if a Kroger isn't available or I need other things besides groceries because I don't have time to go to 2 or 3 different stores. People say they save money by not going to Wal-Mart. I think that may be true but not so much because of the prices especially if you use coupons. I think it's because you see things at Wal-Mart that are tempting to buy that you might not see at other groceries.

      • Deana

        I forgot to mention that I got some great clearance toys last week at Wal-Mart. I even got a wooden train set and table for $24 that had been $49 for my little girl. I'm not sure if that was the original price or not but it was at least 50% off.

        • Cozmikcowgirl

          You can get clothing and other items at great clearance prices… if the items are not damaged returns, which I find they often are. Check out Target for some great clearance prices on clothing and toys! I usually have great luck with them and the quality of the items are much, much higher!

      • Cozmikcowgirl

        I compare my Publix grocery bill to a Wal-Mart grocery only store, so I am not tempted by other items. Apples to apples, Publix saves me an average of 60%.

    • Karen

      I used to work for Walmart as a cashier —- I don't go on principle.

    • Bethanyischeap

      My post-it coupon says it's only good for a purchase of $2 or more… Do I have a different one than others, or will it just not work for a free pack?

    • work2save

      I've learned that Walmart isn't always best… Not sure we will be seeing many nuts on on these! Thanks Jenny!

    • Scarboroughs

      Thank you for the Walmart list- I do shop at Walmart for the most part…. The only other stores that really seem to have great prices are Aldi and Bi-Lo… Yesterday I saved over $10 of my $50 order at Walmart using my coupons. That's big for me being a newbie… thanks again.

    • Leighann Howell

      Yay for a Wal Mart list! I would love to be able to pick up most of those items for cheaper elsewhere, but unfortunately there is no “elsewhere” around here. My choices are Wal Mart, Winn Dixie and Rouse's – and no stores that double. Nice to see the “free at [drugstore]” going on there, too, that is VERY helpful. Thank you!

    • Angela

      I know they are not the best deals but I live in SW Michigan, the only stores on this site near me are target and Walgreens. We don't go to Walmart often but its right there with all the other stores, so if there is a good deal (to someone like me that doesn't have the southern grocers) then it wouldn't be out of my way to stop in! Now if only you could add Meijer and Family Dollar to the list :)

    • @MightyMouseMom….I am a Walmart employee and I alson use coupons….I don't know what position the employee you encountered at Walmart was…But they were very wrong in what they told you. Walmart ABSOLUTELY DOES honor coupons and other competitor prices no matter where they are located. Whom ever told you otherwise should be reported for misrepresentation for doing so. I would have went straight to management and made a complaint and they should have taken care of the problem, and if not I would have went above that. They most definetly shouldn not have employees working at these stores who arent doing right by the customer or the company. As a employee it frustrates me because I know how hard I work and go out of my way to please each and every one of my customers and trust me…the pay isnt worth the headache but the people are!! One satisfied customer makes up for a million angry ones…and it is OUR job to turn the frustrated ones into happy customers!! I am so sorry that you had a horrible experience!!

      • no fun at walmart

        Thats the problem, they give you such a hard time, then you end up having to call a manger etc etc etc. It's just more efficient to go elsewhere.

        • Superjen

          That's what I think too, I value my shopping time at $10 an hour. So if a 5 min trip to Customer Service at Publix gets me some rain checks and I save $10 because of them, that's worth it. Waiting 20 min for Customer NoService at Walmart, even if they eventually accept my $1 coupon – not worth it.

      • Paulhowe37

        walmart has been worse to me than walgreens dealing with coupons. thats saying alot. half the coupons i try to use they dont want to take, even after supervisors come over. I must say at walgreens today i did have a helpful cashier.

        • Paulhowe37

          fyi, im not saying i dont shop at walmart, i buy alot of their storebrand foods, im saying, coupon shopping there is not worth the hassle.

      • mightymousemom

        Hi Dawn, I am sure you are a lovely person, and in defense of Walmart, I have met some very, very nice employees at Walmart…my negative toilet paper price match/manufacturer coupon incident at Walmart sent me to the retail competition and the ultimate discovery that there were cheaper prices to be found. In spite of my negative experience, I know there are nice people employed at Walmart and I wish you the best…unfortunately, Walmart lost thousands of dollars I had to spend on my household needs…because of a pack of Charmin.

    • Sandy565

      The Ken salad dressing coupon is $1 off 2….

      • Cathy5kids

        There was a Q for 8oz that is $1 off 1. There was another for $1 off 2. & I think there was one for marinade.

    • Alex

      Boo walmart! I was so happy you refused to post walmart :(

    • debbie3000

      There are other couponing sites that post Walmart so do you really need to bite the bullet on this one. I think by this first posting that you have proved by your comparision pricing that it isn't worth you time. Southern savers is my favorite but I do mosey over to another site for Walmart deals under a dollar. I only use coupons over .50 at Walmart since my Kroger doubles up to .50.

    • senoravillalta

      I tried to use a target coupon yesterday and was told I couldn't. Maybe it depends on who your cashier is…

    • Sandy565

      The post it coupn is $1 off purchase of $2 or more

    • Lorri

      I swore off Walmart over 6 months ago when I thought I had left an item at the register. I called customer service and they said I could come back and pick up the item. When I went to retrieve the item, they treated me like a common criminal, as if I were trying to steal from them. I have not stepped foot in or spent one red cent in there since. I thought my grocery bill would go up having to shop elsewhere, but it didn't. Right about the same time, I also found this site which helped even more.

      I guess I said all of that just to say THANK YOU, JENNY. Your site has been a God-send. I cannot imagine how you possibly do all of this good work with young children. You help so many people with your site.

      It also helps to know that I really wasn't saving anything by shopping at Walmart and tolerating their deplorable customer service. My apologies to the few who work there and work hard to please the customers.

    • I'll take Target

      Savannah Walmarts are not the most friendly place to shop. Good luck with standing in line to reach customer service. Good luck with trying to get actual customer service from the customer service department. Good luck getting them to price match. We can't even get them to clean up.

    • Cathy5kids

      I just got back from my Walmart. I should have known it wasn't going to go as well as I'd hoped. They were completely out of Maalox. They don't carry Spic & Span or any travel sized anything. Most of the things on my list aren't carried in my store. :-(

    • Erin

      Thanks for posting Walmart. In the upstate NY area I live we only have price chopper and hannaford to choose from besides Walmart (and neither doubles) so Walmart will usually have the cheapest items. I've never really had a problem with them taking coupons, some will come up not found but they always push them though. FYI – their prices are definitely regional, ours are usually higher then what's posted above.

    • kcreviews

      I appreciate all Jenny does in trying to help us.

      As for me personally, I stopped shopping at Walmart after my first few weeks at Southern Savers. I have reduced my visits there from once a week to once every 2 or 3 months. Every time I go in, I tell myself “never again” but now and again I need a couple of things that I can get cheaper at Walmart (like tennis balls or their Great Value brand of Splenda).

      I have saved SO much money at other stores, that it pains me every time I have to step into a Walmart. But I'm glad for all of you who don't have much other choice.

      • Buster243

        I resemble this remark….

    • Suzanne

      Also too, I work third shift and it's very nice to have a 24 hour store to shop at when I get home from work at 4 or 5 am. We are eligble to shop at our local military commissary, but it's days and hours of operation never are convenient for us. Also too Walmart's prices are fairly constant, not just a one week deal when things are on special.

    • Gregoriandesigns

      I feel bad for the people that can only shop at WalMart. Too bad Target won't get in your area. Target is my favorite store and after much research about the difference of Target and WalMart, I will gladly give Target my business over WalMart. The Walton family are a group of money hungry, disgusting people who give less than 1% of all their money to charity. The less than 1% only stays in the state that they currently live in their community., probably so that the community won't kick them out.

    • bcw77

      I have never known any Wal-Mart to accept competitor coupons, certainly not the one where I live in McDonough, GA. I used to do all my shopping there before I really got into couponing and started using Southern Savers. Now I realize you really can't save that much at Wal-Mart. I still have to go there sometimes, but I have truly reduced my trips there and the amount I buy there. I only do it when absolutely necessary. Like others have posted, it pains me to have to go there.

    • GaMedic

      Once upon a time I was a regular Walmart Shopper, I didnt know about extreme couponing, and thought I was getting a good deal at Walmart.. I was VERY WRONG… Besides Walmart being an unfriendly coupon store and half of the cashiers dont even know their own coupon store policy, to waiting and waiting in line because of the fact they have 20 registers in the store, at any given time you can bet only 1 or 2 are open.. YES if you DONT have a coupon for an item, then yes I would say go to Walmart and get it, but if you have coupons to use, dont even bother with Walmart you will get a much better price somehere else.. I promise you !
      So yes I totally agree with Jenny.. use Walmart as your LAST RESORT to shop at.. Happy Extreme Couponing (:

    • Tez

      Hooray, Jenny! You're awesome!

    • Jehs1982

      Before Southern Savers – I had never stepped foot in Publix….so I did not know that there was anywhere that treated its employees and customers with respect. I did not know any better – but now that I do, it is really hard to EVER go back to Walmart, because it is so “in your face” how much our Walmart (I am not saying this is the case with everyone) does not care. I am so spoiled now to being treated like a human it is hard to go somewhere and pay to be treated like a dog.

      • Kristy

        II so agree. I was a regular Walmart shopper but now I avoid it like the plague. I discovered Publix too & would much rather spend my money where “shopping is a pleasure.” Plus recently I had a problem w my items not ringing up right at Publix. I went to customer service, where they realized it was their mistake. Being that the price was more than I was willing to pay, I returned them. The manager then gave them to me free. Talk about customer service. I am so glad Jenny is posting the Walmart sales then putting where you can get it cheaper. Way to go Jenny!

    • momto2boys

      While we are on the subject of walmart…why is it that they feel the need to rearrange the store all the time?? Just when you think you know where to find something they move it all the way across the dang store! The places they put things makes no logical sense. I think they do it to make you wander aimlessly around the store and buy more useless junk. Which is why if I absolutely have to go in there I am in and out in a hurry…

      • momto2boys

        Also why aren't like things together? Like why isn't all the baby stuff together? In the walmart that I usually go in the cosmetics are completely separate from all the other toiletry items. I completely expect to go in there one day and find the diapers with the toilet paper and the milk with the dogfood…lol!

      • Lisaallynnpearcy

        When I worked for wal-mart 5 years ago, I asked the same thing. The said that there have been studies that have shown people will buy more if things are changed every so often. It makes them go to different parts of the store that they would not have otherwise. It is to shake up those of us whom like to go stright to what we need and leave ignoring all the other stuff. I don't understand. It just makes me mad. I moved here in 1996 from SW Florida. I had worked for publix as decorator, but there were no publix stores here in Tn at that time, so I started to work for wal-mart. Oh man, what a culture shock. However I have worked with some great people at walmart and after all these years we are still intouch.
        I am so sorry to all of those whom have no better choice but to shop at walmart. I have NEVER found better deals at walmart sense I have started couponing. I have always known that Publix has the best sales, but for things like laundry soap and cosmetics, I had no choice but to go to walmart. But now I get most of those things at CVS or Walgreens. Kroger is a great place to shop too and I have not had too much trouble with coupons there. Sorry so long! Happy shopping!

    • Melissa M.

      I don't know if this has already been posted but my Walmarts have NEVER accepted printable coupons and do not double either.

      • Chrissy H.

        My WM in Burlington, NC accepts my printable coupons with no problem; but they do not double. I've never had an issue with coupons there; they always take them as long as I have the correct item/number of items and the expiration date hasn't passed.

    • Asdoodle

      I personally really appreciate this posting and the remarks including where items can be found cheaper. Many weeks, I question whether I could find such and such cheaper at WM or whatever the deal is at Target… now it's all in one spot. Thanks Jenny for simplifying my life even more!

    • CB

      I know that many don't like Wal-Mart and, honestly, I wish that there were more options in my area. We do have Target, but it doesn't have a full grocery section. Unfortunately, if an item that I need isn't on sale somewhere else, Wal-Mart offers the best price.

    • Jackzan

      I do my super-couponing at other stores, but still have to go to Walmart several times a month. I can never find as good deals on staples like their brand of sugar, flour, equal, instant coffee, acne medication for my tean, vitamins and certain otc meds. I never find great deals on these items anywhere regularly. Do y'all?

      • Cozmikcowgirl

        A while back I got Clean & Clear products at Publix for a lot less than Wal-Mart or Target's store brands of those items.

        • Cozmikcowgirl

          So I stocked up!

      • jw

        I have been able to combine coupons and store sales to get sugar, and flour cheaper then walmart brand.

      • yes. Drugstores. :) Get the moneymaking deals and use your rr's/+ups/ecb's on the things you need. Get them free, if there's not a deal (like free coffee at Rite Aid right now. :)

      • GaMedic

        I'll go to Walmart to get something ONLY if I dont have a coupon to stack with it, because yes Walmart is the cheapest when you DONT have a coupon to use.. but when I have coupons, Walmart is the last place I will shop..

    • Tasha

      I just want to thank you for doing this. I especially like that you put where it's cheaper under the item. That makes it easier for me to see where I can get deals cheaper. Also, where I can't. I have CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, and Winn Dixie. I have to drive an hour away to get to a Publix, Target, Rite Aid, and 1/2 even further to get to Kroger. Most times, it doesn't pay for me to do this. I would have this week to get 25 cents per jar peanut butter, but had to wait for my coupons to arrive. It was the weekend, so I had Monday or Tuesday to accomplish this. Well, the Blizzard of 11 hit, ….. and the rest is history. Needless to say, I'm not going to the corner stop-and-rob, let alone an hour away! LOL

      thanks again for doing this for us that are limited in the stores we have available to us!

    • Chrissy H.

      I do appreciate you adding Wal-mart! I try to do the sale items at Harris Teeter and CVS; but I'm still not convinced I'm always beating WM prices on some things, like fresh meat and most Great Value brand items. Also, things like Capri Sun and Pop Tarts regular prices at Wal-mart usually beat other stores sale prices. I'm still learning, though!

    • Brittany

      My Wal-Mart in GA won't accept competitor coupons :( The manager told me it's because they don't get reimbursed with those coupons.

      • GaMedic

        The Walmart on highway 41 in Marietta across from the cemetery told me that I was only allowed to use ONE coupon on any item, even if I bought 4 of the same item I was only allowed to use ONE coupon, didnt matter that I had (4) coupons.. one for each item purchased (4) or not, it was not allowed.. I get upset and as to speak to a manager, loal and behold the manager agrees with the cashier.. and tells me if I want to buy 4 and use all 4 coupons I will have to go back in line 4 times to pay for them… I kid you not… I was so mad I left my UNPAID cart at the checkout and asked the cashier to kindly hand my coupons back to me, and I was leaving.. This is another reason I say use walmart as a last resort..

    • Sara O

      Thank you for doing this, I only have Walmarts and Krger here and no CVS, just walgreens. So I don't have a lot of options besides the big W.

      • Phillips4658

        Same here!! We have a Food Lion, Kroger and Walmart. I love Publix but it is 30 minutes away. I only go when I have a good list of things to get. Ya know.. gas verses savings.

        • I have a Food Lion within walking distance, a Wal-Mart right across the street and a Kroger a few miles down the road. And I save more money by shopping at the Publix an hour away once a week.

          Just sayin'. :)

      Go to Walmarts corporate sight… type in “coupon policy”, print it and take it with you the next time you go. They have to honor the corporate coupon policy! If the cashier gives you a hard time. talk to a manager and tell him you will contact corporate. I've done this multiple times in multiple walmarts. I haven't encountered a problem since. THEY SHOULD KNOW THERE OWN COMPANY POLICY FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!!

    • Teri

      Yeah, i don't do Walmart anymore. Sorry you are having to waste your time posting the Walmart ad.

    • noakman

      Thank you so much for adding Walmart and also listing where the item is cheaper. I am new to couponing and although I HATE Walmart, I thought I was saving money by trying to do some of my shopping there. After reading your post today I will happily be sticking with Publix from now on! Thanks again – your site is amazing and saves me a ton of time and money each week :)

    • Jo R

      I used to shop at WM but quit once I learned that Publix was affordable with B1G1and coupons. I used to follow coupon mom who regularly posted WM sales but I could never find half the deals- each store is different so it was really a waste of time. It would take a while to get ready for the trip and then most things weren't on sale!!! Glad we have options here – thanks Jenny! You are great!

    • Brittanymojica25

      wow thank you for this…i always use to shop at the supercenter….thank you for helping me and my family save money!!!!

    • Amanda

      I haven't shopped at Wal-mart in four years because of a coupon fiasco. I had ten coupons worth $4.00 off a bottle of Opti-free. I gave my husband half of the coupons and he used them at one of the four Wal-marts we have in town. Later that day I used the other five coupons at a Wal-mart that was a couple of miles away from the one he went to. Still later that day we were talking about our good deal when I realized that I had a better deal. How can that be I thought. Well it turns out that “his” Wal-mart was selling the product for a full $1.27 more than “my” Wal-mart. I packed up both receipts and went back to his Wal-mart fulling expecting a price adjustment. Well, I was in for a rude awakening, Wal-marts do not match each other's prices even if they are in the same zip code and on the same street. They are also quite rude about accepting returns from other Wal-mart stores. I got my money back but not the coupons. The supervisor told me they simply would not be able to find them. I got very irrate over that and told her that was unacceptable. She then rolled her eyes, walked over to the machine that rang up my husband, pulled up the drawer and handed me my five coupons back – literally as simple as that. For people who don't have a shopping choice, you have my sympathy. I thought I would regret not shopping at Wal-mart anymore but I actually find it liberating.

    • couponmonster

      I agree with most of the previous comments by others in that I spend less time shopping at Wal-Mart now that I've started to seriously coupon over the past year. I almost ALWAYS combine sales with manufacturer coupons and promotional “mega events” for the majority of my shopping and cannot beat the savings that I've accrued at area grocers and pharmacies when compared to Wal-Mart.

      To convince myself of this… and I know that this may sound crazy and excessively analytical, I'd compiled a list of exact items (including sizes and brand, even the Great Value brand for certain items that I regularly purchase) to carry alongside my coupons for comparison. As an example, I typically buy the Great Value brand of feminine products, pasta sauce, and shredded cheese,but I also have recorded the “namebrand” counterpart so that I have all bases covered…no matter the store or brand, I can always refer to what I would typically purchase had I been shopping at Wal-Mart.

      My best advice, if you have the time, would be to keep track of your Wal-Mart receipts keep a tally of the products you regularly purchase and the corresponding price so that you can get an idea of what a “good deal” really means. I find myself buying “name brand” items, whereas I normally would not have done so in the past, at grocery/pharmacies because they end up being less than store brand, less than $1, or better yet, FREE!! If you wait long enough and are patient, the item will eventually go on sale and can be combined with a coupon.

      • Cozmikcowgirl

        Don't feel bad. I did the exact same things, but after two shopping trips to Publix I saw where things were going and I stopped doing the comparison with WalMart. I am confident that when I shop at Publix I am getting the best deal in my area.

        • couponmonster

          Thanks…I've learned too, now…but questioned it in the beginning…if only I had a Publix..no such luck here in Raleigh, NC. I feel like do fairly well with Kroger and occasionally Harris Teeter for super doubles or triples!!

    • Kvaladez_77

      hi everyone,

      everyone should print walmart coupon policy. According to policy every walmart takes printable and newspaper coupons. also, i attempted to use scotch brite coupon pdf and my walmart didnt take it. the register printed some little paper denying that particular coupon. I bought most of the items on the list for the exception of the cat food and all coupons worked perfect. hope this helps! kristy

    • Maria

      Thanks for adding Walmart . I don't go there very often as Publix has such a great coupon policy and no hassles taking them but it's nice to be able to glance over the Walmart add here .
      BTW using coupons at my Walmart is almost a hassle and many their cashiers need serious etiquette training .

    • luiza

      Ok I wasn't going to say anything, but couldn't help it…I have always had a hard time using coupons at WM on hwy 17, SC. And always for different reasons, depending on the cashier of the day. One day, she refused one coupon because it was printed black and white, while accepting another for same item which I had accidentally printed in color. I tried to explain that she had just taken the same coupon, she wouldn't take it. But last week I had the “best” situation yet: I had two coupons for TWO boxes of bandages. The cashier said: “I'll do this today, but you really are only allowed one coupon”. I replied I had two items, one coupon for each. She said that according to their policy, it is ONE coupon, because they were for the same item. It started to get funny… “What if I bought 5 boxes of bandages? How many coupons could I use?” -“one coupon”, came the reply.I couldn't convince this lady that she was violating the number one rule of couponing that I know, one coupon per item purchased. I think this store is absolutely impossible! … good luck to y'all brave ones attempting to shop there and sorry this ended up kind of long.

    • Herndonquad

      Jenny, really feel like it is a waste of time for you to go to this trouble with the Walmart weekly listing. I know you have other customers that beg to differ but it is just too much of a hassle to argue with the cashiers over the coupons.

      • Brwneyedgrl89

        I have NEVER had a problem using coupons at Walmart, ours is great about it, and since we don't have any choices as to where to shop I am TOTALLY grateful for this list. I say if you don't need it don't read it…..some of us will benefit ALOT from this list….

    • Astridholliman

      My Walmart(Collegedale, TN) will match BOGO sales.

    • Dawn

      Our Walmart doesn't have the Good Life moist, or at least thats what the Wags clerk told me last week when we started talking about coupons, LOL

      I usually look at the Walmart deals posted, but I almost never go there. I did go on Black Friday for a few things, but I usually shop for groceries at Tops (I'm in NY) or Aldi. I find myself wishing our areas had these great grocery stores you guys have! We also have Wegmans in our area, but their flyer sucks for trying to match anything up before you go. Our Tops also has “discount meat” ;p

      I usually look at the ads at other stores and go Hey, I got that free last week at Cvs or something!

    • aurore

      I wish we had a Publix:(

    • Kvaladez_77

      What if you only published 1.00 and under Free things you can get at walmart because that is really only what i would buy at walmart. Also, it really interesting the types of people that shop at walmart versus say target and the types of people who work at walmart vs target. there must be some type of correlation

      • Ashley

        Wow, before I was a couponer I would say I was SMART in shopping at Walmart for food, cleaning, dog food, and health and beauty. Now what is that suppose to say about me in the fact that I shopped at Walmart rather than overpriced Target? The majority of America shops at Walmart. Hmm… you are right there are all different types of people that will buy something in Walmart.

      • 4foot

        Don't be so harsh about EVERY Walmart associate. Some of us do our jobs well and though we don't agree with everything, we are glad to have a job.

      • Jacketfan24

        That is completely rude. I have worked for Walmart for 17 years and I have a college education. You should not judge people based on whether or not you like the place where they choose to work. I have had some pretty bad cashiers at other places but I don't judge all of their employees on their actions. I don't think Jenny's intention in posting this list, even though I am aware she doesn't like Walmart either, was for her 'followers' to bash people.

        • KaitlynGruffle

          SO true! Everyone has their opinion, but either way you try to put it, WalMart does have the advantage over some places, period. Thanks so much Jenny!!

      • Acook

        So Kvaladez_77 if you think there is a relation to where people work and the type of person they are, then please share with us know where YOU work so we can judge you. Who are you to be the judge and jury?

      • Jareno0919

        Wow, what a judgmental thing to say…Maybe you should really read what you type before you send it.

      • Mercurialc

        Who shops at Wal-Mart? I do.

        I started working full-time when I was 14. Despite the long hours, I finished high school at the top of my class and went on to college. I've worked all my life until recently when I had to discontinue working so I could care for my mother who has cancer.

        In my “spare” time, I do volunteer work for my church, and rehabilitate horses and ponies that have been abused. I do this at my expense.

        I shop at Wal-Mart.

      • Cmb4u2

        I think it's great that this list is published for those who don't have many options in their area. If there were only a published list of $1 and under Free things then it would not fully benefit those individuals that MUST shop at Walmart. Furthermore, I think it's irrelevant what type of people shop and/or work at Walmart v/s Target. You have educated and well paid individuals who shop at both.

    • Carrie_C

      I too have stopped shopping at WalMart for the most part since finding Southern Savers a year ago. However, I've been fairly lucky on using coupons there – if I have 20 of one coupon, they scan them and there aren't any limits – yet. Just today I had a good experience – 12/31/10 exp peelie on all of the products on the endcap. The csm on duty allowed me to use them because they were still on the product. She also made the comment that there is a grace period for submitting coupons for reimbursement but if not, it was the store's fault for not removing them. Say WHAT?

      • Monica

        How do you get 20 of one coupon? I am new and trying to learn the techniques.

    • Jilloman

      I live in Fort Lauderdale and we have a beautiful, noncrowded, organized Walmart Grocery store with many high end grocery and drugstore items you would never find in the superstore….that's right just groceries and drugstore stuff and it's prices are generally a lot cheaper than our Publix. For example, i noticed last summer that our Publix had Kraft mayo BOGO at $6.09 and Walmart was selling the same size at $2.48. I believe that regionally, our Publix is higher than Jenny's because I use her website every week for Publix. Even though our prices are sometimes higher, Jenny has lead me to some awesome deals! If I only had a huge Walmart supercenter, I wouldn't subject myself to that either! I appreciate that she is including Walmart and I am sure my south Georgia sister who has few grocery stores in her town will appreciate this link as well. She does not like Walmart, but like I said she doesn't have choices…poor sis! She often drives to 50 miles to go to Publix and she always has Jenny's list! Many thanks from us!

    • Jenny Gluck

      I know this has probably already been posted…….
      Jenny,
      I know you probably hate posting a Walmart ad because of the better deals that are out there at Publix, etc. (my gosh I love Publix), but for those of us who live ONE HOUR away from the nearest Publix, Walmart is sometimes our only option when we have situations where we can't take a whole day to go get those good deals (like bad raining weather or whiney children) so this really does help! Thank you SO MUCH! :)

    • Savec

      I don't go to Walmart ever since I started using coupon. I get better deals at Farm Fresh double dollar on Wednesday and double up to $.99 on other days. Plus I hate the long lines in
      Walmart.

    • Jagfann1

      Thank you for adding walmart too. We're just getting starting clipping and still shop at multiple stores. Thank you for all you do,this spring we'll attend your classes in fla.

    • melody

      says I have reached the limited number of prints for this coupon for HALLS. I havent even used it once.
      Evidently not working guys..

    • Walkjane

      I love that you've added where you can find it cheaper!

    • Mommabrave

      sorry you have so much trouble using coupons at Walmart. I have been a cashier at 3 different Walmarts and do know coupon policy and keep a copy of it at my register, so when other cashiers deny a valid coupon sale I pull it out and show them that we can take it. Walmart just doesn't take the time to make things clear to the other cashiers. However, we do match competitors printed ads, for the exact thing, but as we DO NOT MATCH COMPETITORS COUPONS!

      • wendy

        Our Walmart will not take printable coupons at all. The Store Manager's decision. I called corporate and they did nothing. It is not just the cashiers but the Manager's do not know thier coupon policy. I hardly ever go anyway. I save so much money in other stores.

      • Rudydoescakes

        My Walmart takes competitor coupons

      • guest

        according to Wal-Mart's new coupon policy, you DO take competitors coupons.

      • SarahWr21

        It says on the front of the weelky Walmart ads that come in the newspaper that you do take competitors coupons. Although both times I tried at my local walmart it was a nightmare.

    • Amanda

      I bought the Cottonelle at CVS just to show my sister (that is the only brand she will use) how much cheaper it is. You can get 3 of the 18 double rolls for $20. That is without coupons. It is like getting one for free.

    • ledbypeace

      My hat’s off to Walmart for helping me afford a DS for my daughter this year for Christmas. No one could touch their price & I would have been able to do it otherwise. In addition, they honor competitor ads. As someone mentioned, they have them hanging right by the register. The Walmart where I shop has outstanding customer service.

    • Renee

      Thank you Jenny! I have known your objections for some time. I have couponed for quite a while (a couple of years) and I have no choice except to shop at Walmart for a good part of my groceries. I live at least 6 hours from any chain you cover (other than Target, CVS and Walgreens and I do use all three of them). There are places…out here in no double coupon/no competition land…where Walmart is our least expensive choice. By the way, I live in West Texas and my city is 200,000…we just don't have a national grocery chain. So thanks again!

    • Guest

      walmart will not honor 10 for $10 either

    • Treva

    • Lisa

      Thank you for adding Wal-Mart! In San Antonio TX we do not have national chain grocery stores, which was had to believe when we moved here. While the majority of the country has options for better prices, we simply do not and this helps a lot. I love that you add where things can be found cheaper, for everyone else.

      • KareninTX

        Hi Lisa,
        I'm in San Antonio too and since I've started couponing, I do a lot of shopping at Walgreens. I've also been able to cut about 30% off my HEB bill. I've had problems using coupons at Wal-Mart every single time. A few weeks ago I had 2 of the $2/2 Greek Athenos yogurt coupons. They were $1 so I bought 4, and they all should have been free. When I got home and checked my receipt, not only did the coupon not work, but 3 of the 4 yogurts were expired! SOOO done with Wal-Mart! I feel ya on the lack of grocery options, just wanted to share my experience!

    • A 18wilson

      I used to be a Huge Walmart Shopper not so much anymore, I am new at using a lot of coupons in one transaction when I am out shopping I now have normally around 40 plus coupons, and when I shop at Walmart and use coupons the cashier dont know how to adjust the price or I get nasty looks from the cashier and over the weekend when I handed my cashier my coupons she got really angry at me for giving her coupons . I have also noticed Walmart prices use to be cheaper on most
      the food items and in Michigan they have gone way up I can go to other stores and get more for less.
      of there food items and in Michigan they have gone up alot

    • carrie

      Thank you so much for adding Wal-Mart. Thanks to couponing and Publix, I've lessoned my weelky trips to Wal-Mart to monthly and hope to be able to go even less. But there are still some items we buy that I never see on sale at Publix (or at least not on a good good sale how often we need it – ex: Pediasure) and therefore still have to get at Wal-Mart so I am thrilled that you have now added it to your wonderful site.

    • Ivajean

      Jenny, My area is a small rural community without the grocery store chains like Publix, etc. We do have a Walmart, Food City, and Sav a Lot, as well as a locally owned store. I appreciated that you have added Food City and Walmart to your list, because for a lot of us, we don't have the main list of grocery stores that have been on your site. I do most of my shopping af Food City, but the Walmart list will come in handy for me, because basically that's all my area has. One of my main concerns with our Walmart is having to wait forever in long lines, when more registers should be open.

    • Solarcafe

      My husband has always told me Wal-Mart is not a place for savings (he's also said I shouldn't go there unsupervised!!), so he will be sending up prayers of gratitude for this posting today, Jenny. Thank you!

    • Heather

      I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you added that part where you can get it cheaper at other stores!!! It just helps me prove my point to fellow non-believers! (it also will help ME remember when I have a weak moment and think I can just 'run in' to pick up a few items because it will be quicker.
      THANK YOU THANK YOU!

    • Autball

      Thank you so much! I'm so tired of my husband saying “why do you waste your time cuponing when you can just shop at Wal-Mart like everyone else!” It makes me so mad, I never liked supporting Wal-Mart anyway!

      • Kristy

        My husband says the same thing. Right now he is complaining that we have too much stuff. He says why don't you just buy it when you need it? I can't seem to make him understand that you stock up when it is on sale so that you don't ever have to pay full price or even close to full price. Then his complaint was “why don't you just buy the cheap brand.” I told him that you can't even get the cheap brand for what I pay for the brand name with cpns. So I spent $1.25 on 2 bottles of winded….so I have challenged him to find 2 bottles of the cheap brand for under $1.25 for both including tax. I know I have this bet won..Hahaha

    • jbusbin

      I like Wal-mart for price matching a store that's inconvenient for me to get to. Surfside, SC store doesn't like the $1 off coupons for $0.97 travel items. I have about a 10% success rate.

    • CBJ92615

      Just for reference: My Wal-Mart in Moncks Corner, SC (right outside Charleston, SC) is no longer accepting printed coupons. I told the sales girl that they will be losing my business and many others as well.

      • Print off their coupon policy and have it in hand when you go in. Corporate says that they DO accept internet printed. I have spoken with my local manager about this and she said they do accept internet printed. Apparently at the end of the year there were a ton of fradulanet coupon being used, my store started telling the cashier not to take any until they could have a cashier metting and show the cashiers which ones are fake and which ones aren't. It's not up to the store whether or not they take them, its a corporate decision.

    • Michi92186

      Thank you for listing the prices of these products at other stores. I have only ever gotten a real deal at Wal-Mart twice in my life. Publix and CVS on the other hand, is where I get incredible deals almost weekly. Everyone thinks that you can save so much money at Wal-Mart, but it is not true. I could never get Free food and Hygiene products at Wal-Mart like I can at Publix and CVS.

    • SamsMommy

      Thanks Jenny for posting this, I think I've been to Wal-Mart once in the last 6 months (when I starting using your website to help with couponing), and when I did go they would not accept a lot of my coupons, such as printables and like $1 off .97cent tide… and they don't care to work with you at all… I am now a very loyal Publix customer because of their deals and customer service!

    • Shinyhappy10

      I just went to my local walmart today, and none of the items listed were on sale. The scotch brite sponges were 3.00, good life cat food was 2.50, the gillette fusion razors were 8.97, the maalox was 5.00. These sale prices do not apply to all walmarts.

      • Dawn

        Was that the price on the moist GL cat food or was it a small bag of the dry?

        Target (mine anyways) has the GL Moist cat food for .77 reg price (I did see that it could list for as much as .97 though, who would pay that for cat food I wonder?) They also have the larger bags of dry for 6.99 (6pounds)

        If you buy 8 of the packest @ .77 and 1 bag of the dry and use 9 $1.50 coupons, Its all free! You just need something to absorb that last overage, or use 8 1.50 and one 1.00 coupon

      • robin

        The same thing happened to me. I ran out to my walmart coupons in hand and that is exactly what the prices were for me. Big let down!

    • MustangLadyred

      I just wanted to say thank you for adding Walmart to your list. We don't have some of the other grocery stores so this will be a HUGE help for me!!

    • MustangLadyred

      just wondering how you get the really good coupons….most of the time my coupons are for less than what you show….often it's the same $ amount but off 2 instead of 1….how do you do it?

      • Ivajean

        I noticed that some of coupons differ also, must be the area. My Ken's dressing coupon is 1.00/2, my sticky notes are 1.00/2.00.

    • Neel_how

      I am from Dublin, GA and they no longer accept online coupons and it is always a hassle when trying to use any coupon there.

    • NomadicLass

      Thanks for doing this, Jenny! I'm not usually a Walmart shopper, but I recently moved and the only store in town? Walmart. :/ This will be SO helpful to me…thanks again!

    • Smartforgood

      Our Walmart doesn't have sticky notes on sale for $1 so we went to Dollar General and got them there but could only use 1 coupon for every $2 spent in store.

    • Iluvmybabes2

      I only shop walmart thanks so much for these, I just take all my ad sales papers in and they match them everytime:)

      • andie98

        our WM will match others, but will not accept coupons on matched items.

        Was I told wrong?

    • Kathytracy33

      wal-mart didn't have the gillette razors for the price that you listed they were $8.95 at my wetumpka, AL wal-mart

    • Keldansmom

      Wow, the addition of Wal-Mart seems to be such a hot topic! I say, if it helps you, look at the post, if you don't shop there then don't look at the post! Lol….as for me, I will continue to avoid Wal-Mart in favor of the great deals at Publix and CVS. The Wal-Marts in my area are not friendly about coupons, the prices can vary greatly from one store to another just 2 miles up the road, and when I HAD to run in there a few days ago I asked about the new coupon policy of accepting competitors coupons and was looked at like I was crazy :)

    • Susanizanurse

      Before I started couponing last year, I shopped exclusively @ WM. Aside from a Harvey's, it was the only game in town. I had never stepped foot in a Walgreens & had only been in CVS twice. I actually tracked our WM spending on my tax spreadsheets & was simply blown away @ how much I was spending on a monthly basis @ WM. I had forbidden myself from going there more than once every 2 weeks to try & limit my spending. I rarely, RARELY bought name brand groceries but relied pretty much exclusively on off brands. All this changed after taking a couponing class. The 1st place I practiced was a supercenter WM & I saved $50 off a $150 bill; HOWEVER, I was in the store over 3 hrs! I felt I did pretty darn good. A few weeks later I drove 140 miles roundtrip to a Publix & a Kroger. I have never looked back & have been to WM maybe 5 times since. I make the Publix drive maybe once a month, sometimes less, & it is so worth my time & my money when I bring home what I've bought @ Publix vs what I use to spend & bring home from WM. It's just unbelievable. I have had issues with using coupons every.single.time. I've tried to use them at WM whether they were manuf. or IP coupons. The customer service just plain sux & I've certainly walked out & left my cart of stuff with them. I know this is not the same with all WM stores, but it is the norm for the stores in my area. In fact, the last time I went, my husband told me to just stay out of there because he hates to see my so frustrated. The prices are never as I see on other blogs & that's even if the stores I tried had the stuff I was after. When I ask for help, it would be easier to self administer an enema than get any help. Again, I know this isn't all WM stores, but I've been treated this way in enough of them that I've all but sworn off WM. I do wish all the best if that's the only option you have as I understand. I don't like driving 140 miles roundtrip to shop @ a Publix, but for the value, customer service, & the amount I buy when I do go, it is so, SO worth my time!

      • Debbie Patterson

        I also don't go to WM any more. Publix is my first choice too. Their B1G1 is real. I feel like Win Dixie jacks up their prices. Who pays $6 a pound for pork chops?

    • sunset

      Went to Wal Mart to get some of these deals and had two problems. Either the prices on the items were much higher than listed on SS or they didn't have the item. Oh well!

    • Kel2001b

      Razors were 8.97 not 4.50!!!!! Also the Spic&Span was 3.47 not .97 and there were no rolls for 1.76. But I had luck with the dental floss and soy sauce.

      • Kleeo12

        I was thinking the same thing! I live about 35 mins from walmart so I printed up all my coupons and headed down there for the “97 cent” spic n span….no such thing……and the carefree ultra for 97 cents was NOT the ultra- the ultra was over $2…..the regular was 97 cents! Oh and Scotch Brite Sponges for 84 cents were also not there!

          We had the 84 cent sponges here in Asheboro, one of the q's listed is for only bathroom sponges (which we had none of) and the other q was 1.00/2. I had 4 q's for the 1.00/2, so I grabbed 8 sponges. Get to checkout and the register wouldn't take the q's, saying something about not the right products or something. The q stated “any 2 scotch brite products” and I had 2 for each q….no idea what that was all about!

          I personally will never try couponing again at walmart. Either they didn't have the products (not even a spot on the shelf for them), prices didn't match up here or issues with the q's. I'll stick to my CVS & Rite Aid lol!

      My Walmart is a smaller WM supercenter, so may not have everything. I tried a few items just to see how this would go. The less expensive Gillette Pro Fusion razors were in a bin below eye level, for 5.97. The ones at eye level were the 8.97 version. I did get two of the Reach floss @.97, two of the Jand J Red Cross kits (found in the small travel/sample product bins), two Olay soap packs(found where the soap was, not where the Olay products were, although other specialty soaps were near their brand products, but Olay wasn't). It did take me a while to find the products. Couldn't find the Carefree for which the coupon was for or the Fusion gel, but like I said, ours is a smaller WM, which could make a difference. I will try some more products this week. The register wouldn't take the Tide coupons on the sample Tides. It printed out a small denial slip. The clerk was very nice. Oh, we did have the Post it Notes, just had to look for them since there were several Post it Products. Overall the trip was good and I will give it another try with some other items on the list! Thanks, Jenny.

      I won't go to Walmart unless there is a dire emergency, or if I know they have something no one else does that I have to have (and I call first). I know how hard it must be for you to add this to your list of grocery stores, and I applaud your efforts. If you're looking for honest feedback though, I'd rather see you spend that time on other store deals. Just my opinion, as I know many people who will never shop anywhere other than WM…

      • Brwneyedgrl89

        I AM THRILLED to have the Walmart ad! :) It and Walgreens are all we have so this is a true BLESSING! I was not a fan of Walmart (still am not) but when its all you have, you will take all the help you can….

    • Katiekittie18

      I went to Wal-Mart to get some of these (mostly the free stuff). And not only did I get the stuff for free, but they didn't adjust the coupons down, so the overage was applied to the items that weren't free. I was happy with my trip. I didn't notice some of the coupons didn't match up with the items they were under though. Like the Carefree, that coupon will not work with the one's listed here. The one they are for costs more. Also the post it coupon is for $1 off $2 or more, so it would not come out free.

      • Katiekittie18

        Oh, and they wouldn't let me use the Tide coupon for the travel size.

    • Xxplumcrazeexx

      Our walmart doesn't accept competitors coupons I was told.

    • Schthomas1

      I was very excited to get so many free items at my LaGrange Wal-Mart, but found that they only had 1 travel-size item (Tide) in stock and they would not honor Target coupons. I guess that is because we do not have a Target in town. All in all, I am grateful for including them in your regular list. I still did very good on the items I did purchase. Thanks, Jenny!

    • Apexmommy

      I noticed that a lot of you are having trouble using internet coupons at Walmart. I had this same problem about six months ago. I contacted their corporate office and their corporate office called my local store and had the store manager personally call and speak with me. She told me they would gladly take internet coupons. Now I have noticed that on the bottom of the Walmart receipt it states that “we gladly take manufacturer and internet coupons”

      Just thought I would pass that along. Good luck!

      • jkone

        I actually had trouble there yesterday and I know that they accept the internet coupons. I had to call the manager over twice and then have a discussion with him when I was finished regarding the clerk that checked me out. She didnt want to use the coupons, tried telling me that the coupons were for other products and then had to go back over all of my items to make sure that I purchased the correct amount for the coupons that I had. Needless to say…My days of shopping at walmart are over. I will find other stores to spend my money at!

    • Ivajean

      Are coupons generally good on sample/trial sizes unless they state otherwise? Walmart didn't accept the Tide coupon on the trial/travel sizes. I noticed there were some other products in Walmart's travel products bins, for which I had coupons, so I didn't know whether to try coupons on those items. What about CVS? Do they accept coupons on travel items, unless stated otherwise on the coupon?

    • Valeriebgonzalez

      It was just a huge headache to use 6 coupons… I never really coupon shop there… just get some essentials when I HAVE to.. I save so much elsewhere that it doesnt make sense to shop there… I decided to try it again, was only able to get 3 of the 7 items I went there for..all because the cashier didn't know how to change a price, Waiting for a manager was just a waste of time. Using coupons at Walmart has always been a headache!!!!!!!!! Don't try getting the sample size things, they wouldnt take most of those q's … target does :P

    • Twinscouts

      Thank you SO much for posting this!!!! Im going to be able to use so many coupons! This is great!

    • Mercurialc

      Thank you so much for listing Wal-Mart!

      Although it's not my favorite store, the only other grocery store on your list that's anywhere near me is Kroger. I'm literally hours away from Target, Bloom, Harris Teeter, and others. There are many small towns where the only supermarket is Wal-Mart. Thanks so much for including it.

    • Morsel87

      With Publix and Bi-Lo in our area, I rarely go to Wal-Mart but I went today to test out the new coupon policy, not only are they accepting all competitor coupons and were announcing it on the PA system while I was in the store. It just went into effect this week so you will need to be patient as the cashiers/mgrs are still learning how to ring them up.

    • Tara

      So, Jenny talk about opening a can of worms! LOL!

    • Dcuebas70

      Jenny, here are few things to keep in mind about Wal-Mart. Trust me I used to be a Wal Mart shopper before my niece told me about your site. Wal Mart usually runs shelf items for less then the major grocers. Examples: Bush's canned beans are usually 78 cents, usually a dollar or more at the major grocery chains and Iams dog food 17.88 at Wal Mart, usually 19.99 at Publix or W/D. Wal Mart can a good source for the need it now but not on sale anywhere else. However, Target is most of the time only a few pennies higher.

      With that said, I want to thank you for the time that you put into the website. It is a great resource. I was so tired of getting to Wal Mart to find my usuals were gone. I live in a very ethnic area with a lot of farms. I swear if I saw one more person literally clear a shelf of gatorade or powerade with their arm one more time, I was going to demand that they speacial order product for me.

    • Teedlesp73

      Walmart in Hixson TN would not accept my Target coupon for Scott Tissue today. My cashier said that the only competitor coupons they take are the ones that say manufacturers coupon on it. I explained to her that a competitor coupon is one that is normally only accepted at that store and that manufacturers coupons you can use anywhere. She said what they consider competitor coupons are the ones that print out at the register at grocery stores that say manufacturers coupon on top. Oh well. I generally do most of my coupon shopping at the Publix and BiLo and sometimes at Food Lion and most of my non coupon shopping at ALDI. Would have been nice to get the dollar off of the Scott Tissue today though.

    • Bamasaver

      I stopped in @ WalMart this evening…bottom of my receipt had this statement: “We gladly accept manufacturer and internet coupons”. Guess we need to “stand our ground”. And thanks, Jenny, for adding WalMart. I also live in an area that has no Super Target (only a regular Target–no “full” grocery area) & only a Winn Dixie as far as the chain grocery stores go–we do have CVS, Rite Aid AND Walgreens, but as far as a real grocery shopping trip goes WalMart has the lowest prices. Really wish we'd get a Kroger or Publix in our area!!!

    • Twoelles2tees

      Tallahassee Wal-Marts will not take any coupons without a watermark – just a heads up. They said internet coupons directly from the website can be fraud. Right.

      • Genkisam

        Hey I'm from Tallahassee too. Where do you do most of your shopping? I feel like there's a limit to how much I can save since we don't have stores that double/triple coupons and we don't have Safeway, Harris Teeter etc here.

        • Twoelles2tees

          I do most of my shopping at Publix – mostly because of coupons and such. It also depends on the items I wish to purchase. I buy with the B1G1 and uses coupons with the items. On top of that, I will use a CVS $4 off $20 or $5 off $25. New Leaf is getting more competitive, and they have started printing $5 off $35 coupons. They have also changed their coupon policy. Before, most coupons were only 1 per transaction, but now it is possible to use 5 on some items. I have gotten some really good deals there. They usually have good deals on frozen vegetables or Muir Glen tomatoes. If nothing else, they always have a big stack of organic coupons that I can use at Publix if I need to. The majority of my shopping is done at Publix Lake Ella. They are one of the strictest Publix in town as far as coupons go. I am told that the new Publix on Thomasville Road does not read the fine print on limits.

          • Genkisam

            Thanks so much! Lake Ella is my closest Publix too but I have been a bit intimidated since last time I tried to use a printable coupon there, about a year ago, they refused. I didn't know they accepted CVS coupons! It's so nice to be able to talk to someone local. No one I know in Tally coupons. Have you checked out Earth Fare yet? They email some pretty great coupons for free items occasionally.

    • Raynesmw

      So, after not shopping at Walmart every since I discovered the “couponing” world, I gave it a try last evening. It was a disaster. All of my coupons actually scanned. After I swipped my card and thought I was on my way, then the register started funny messages. It said I had too many coupons, I had actually less than 20. One guy came over and said, oh we don't accept any Internet coupons. I pulled out my policy I had printed and he argued with that. He said we were told not to. Then, he calls someone else. She tells me the same thing. I finally said, fine put my groceries somewhere and I will call cooperate and be back tomorrow. I really wasn't angry, just confused. Now, the people behind me…that is another story. She finally said, fine, I will push it through. I have emailed cooperate office to see what the issue is. Even so, my bill was 29.00 which is high compared to what I spend at CVS, Rite Aid or Walgreens. See, in my area within a 30 minute radius, I have like 8 of each of these stores. And, they are smaller and usually stocked and convenient. I will be checking for the deals, Jenny. I appreciate you (like others here) more than you will ever probably realize!!

      • momto2boys

        I think wal-mart needs some serious cashier/manager education on coupons! I mean if they are going to publish a coupon policy then they need to follow their own rules!

    • Candice H

      This is my first time coming to Southern Savers. I was referred by my Aunt who loves to use it. I don’t get any papers at the moment so no coupons but I do shop the sales papers. Anyways I was looking around online and noticed that Walmart had something about manufacturers coupons and a link to their coupon policy here http://walmartstores.com/7655.aspx The last time I tried to use coupons.com coupons I was refused but I wonder if I print that out if they will change their minds? I guess I’ll just have to see!

    • Lizzy

      I was really very surprised to see Wal Mart on the list . I used to shop exclusively at Wal Mart , but now I know better . It takes a little more prep time but I would rather give my very hard earned money to a company who's employees are not hatefull and RUDE every time I go to the store

    • Cheryl

      Well, this was my first attempt at couponing in many, many months at Walmart. In the past, it seemed that the cashiers were actually trained to be rude to people who used several coupons in a transaction. Before I began shopping I spoke to the manager to make sure there would be no problems at the register with my q's and was told they were fine. I made a conscious decision to use only internet q's along with a FREE excedrin which was mailed, not printed. Manager said they can tell they are legitimate by the verify logo on some q's and assured me there would be no problems. Much to my surprise, the transaction went thru with no issues. The only problem was that the shelves were empty of a number of the products I planned to purchase. This Walmart was in Tullahoma, Tn. I was impressed and hope that my experience continues for everyone who tries to use coupons there. Manager and cashier were extremely nice, not the normal behavior of acting as if I was a theif. I'm very grateful for a pleasant experience!

    • Dbwiseman

      On the Cottonelle Jenny says “(try to not pay more than 33¢ a roll, this is 50¢…) Does this mean don't pay more than 33¢ for a double roll? @ $9.97 for 18 DOUBLE Rolls would this not be 28¢ per roll?

      • tygirl13

        I never pay more than .33 for a double roll. It seems that “double” rolls are the new regular size.

    • zeesmom

      The Walmart in Ooltewah, TN won't take any store coupons. I tried to use a “manufacturers coupon” that came from BiLo and they wouldn't take that one either. I tried to explain to the cashier it was a manufacturer's coupon not a store coupon and she still would not take it. They also will not double coupons. Walmart is not customer friendly and they really do not ad match. I told the cashier that I wouldn't be shopping there again and she just rolled her eyes. Of course the store was packed with people so I don't think they think they will ever miss the few that say they won't be shopping there anymore. Thank you Southern Savers for opening my eyes.

    • Joni

      Make sure you check your receipts guys, I went to walmart today and 5 things rang up wrong. For example, they had a great price on 50lb bags of Dog Chow, $16.97 (-$2.00 coupon) but when I checked out it rang up $19.98.

    • Lalawhat

      which Wal-mart do you shop at? i live in north Ga. the Gillette Fusion Razors were not $4.50. very BUMBED

    • Ivajean

      I had my second experiment at Walmart this evening, with just a few coupons, four to be exact. The one for the Greek Yogurt went thru. The two for the Scotch Brite sponges (computer generated) and the one for Swiss Miss (coupon from magazine) wouldn't go thru. The cashier was very nice and apologetic. I asked her if she could see if a supervisor could process them. She called a supervisor and she got them to go thru. My other coupon experiment earlier in the week at Walmart worked except for the Tide coupon, which didn't work on the sample product. I'm just trying a few coupons at a time to experiment there, because I don't want to have a buggy full of stuff and encounter problems like some of the posts have shown.

      • Melissaperone

        I used my coupon on on the sample but you can only use 1, the coupon says that there is a limit of 1 per transction

    • Happy Feet

      The one thing I have noticed is there is an awful lot of complaining on SS. Other sites like Coupon Mom isn't a grip session but is a real help. I thought these coupons were for sharing tips and deals. Really Disappointed here…. I dont think I will read anymore of these sections. Won't miss this..

      • Connie in AL

        I actually like to know when I am not in the minority when I find that a store is unfair or just a complete waste of time when using coupons. It helps me to know whether or not the store has improved their customer service in this area as well. I take the bad with the good because the good here invariably outweighs the bad and helps keep me better informed.

    • Monica

      1-15-2011 At the bottom of my Walmart receipt it said we gladly accept manufacturer coupons and valid internet coupons. It did not say we take competitors coupons.–Camden, SC

    • Shirley W

      It is great that you added the locations where we can find it cheaper. I admired the fact that you did not succumb to Walmart mania. People really do need to educate themselves about price comparisons, Walmart is not the cheapest or the friendliest place to shop. It is a place where customers are least appreciated, it looks like survival of the fittest at the check out lanes in there. I have had little luck at all at Walmarts in Macon, Ga with coupons, they are not even on my radar for savings anymore.

      Hey! Wanted to let yall in on another deal I came across yesterday! My Wal Mart (in Woodstock, GA) has the small boxes of Snuggle Fabric Softener Sheets 40 ct. for $1.87. There is a coupon in the SmartSource 1/16/11 for $2/2 Snuggle Fabric softener, making the boxes only .87 cents each wyb 2! I stocked up!! The coupon is on the same page as the ALL Laundry detergent. It may be regional, but thought I’d share :)

      Went to walmart (tucker) and tried using coupons and deals/ not worth it for me. i will stick with Publix and kroger…

    • Workin'Mom

      Everyone loves to complain about Walmart…

    • Eae1959

      Yes, I will complain about Walmart. I tried twice this week with all patience in tow, Coupon for soy sauce BOGO wouldnt go thru, cashier had processed the $1 cpn for Soy Sauce and put it in the register. Supervisor finally shows up and opens drawer to get back the cpn so he could void that one. Scotch Sponge coupons would not work….Told again they do not take internet coupons…regardless of what it says on the receipt they have alot of stipulations but dont seem to know exactly what they are. One cashier said the coupons had to have a green dot on them…..that was it for me, the stress and lack of a solid policy is just more than my patience can take.
      Sorry about complaining but the facts are the facts and maybe this will keep someone else from waisting their time and patience. OH, and I eneded up paying more than what I should have from taking off and adding of items and cpns…Guess Walmart got me.
