I know that many Walmart stores have started making it difficult for their customers to use printable coupons. This is unfortunate, since Walmart’s corporate coupon policy still states that they do accept them. What can you do? Be an empowered consumer tells you how to handle coupon rejection and what to do when your legitimate coupons are rejected. If you are printing coupons from Coupons.com, this is a perfectly legitimate source of manufacturer’s coupons. But of course there are fraudulent printable coupons out there, and I want you to know how to spot a fraudulent coupon so that you can avoid ever printing one or trying to use one.

If you’re looking for Walmart shopping deals, check out these frugal blogs:

They will help you match up those coupons you have with great prices! Just remember that each Walmart store carries a slightly different selection of products and that the prices also vary slightly by region. Be sure you understand and print a copy of Walmart’s Coupon Policy and Walmart’s Price Matching Policy. If you have any problems using coupons at your Walmart or with missing or damaged samples you receive from Walmart, please follow-up with the store manager and corporate by calling 1-800-WAL-MART.

Walmart is the best source of free samples for a wide variety of products. Their free sampling program is managed by StartSampling and they say that you should get your samples within 2 to 4 weeks of requesting them.
