I am sure al of you remeber about my problem, from two weeks ago, abut this coupons from Walmart.I wrote to the manager and here is the response. Wal-Mart Stores can accept coupons that are available on the internet for customers to print from their home computers. The following are guidelines for the stores for accepting internet coupons: - The coupon should be legible and say "Manufacturer Coupon". There should be a valid remit address for the manufacturer, to ensure the coupon can be processed for payment. - The coupon should have a scan-able bar code. - The coupon should have an expiration date. - The coupon cannot be a photocopy. - The limit is one coupon per item, per Customer. - A Salaried Manager can refuse to accept a coupon if it does not meet any or all of these guidelines. I though it might help you guys.

Thanks much for posting this information. We have actually never had Wal-Mart reject a coupon ourselves, although a few other stores have. The bit about the "salaried manager" is interesting. It will also be interesting to see how this works in the future.

Yeah, why the emphasis on the 'salaried' I wonder...

That does help, Laurika, thanks. I wonder what violations your coupons off the internet committed? Usually internet printed coupons are accepted without a hassle. I mean you used a reputable site too.

Thanks for the info laurika. I have never used an internet coupon myself for fear it would be rejected.

Great information. I once printed on off and tried to use it at the grocery store. They also refused it saying that they did not accept any that were printed off on a computer. I am not sure why this is a problem for them since the bar code and expiration date were there. I guess they really just didn't want to mess with having to redeem them to get their money back. Have you noticed that you very rarely get coupons in the mail anymore? I used to use them all the time but I just don't seem to get them like I used to .

I had this problem in Walmart and they tell me I could mass product them, so that was the reason the cashier didn't take it.this is the reason why they are not taking them, but I don't nderstand then for what they are online?But I am gonna try them tomorow and see, since I have this answer from manager. We still got some coupons in mail, but I hardly used them.Beucase all of them are for real-estate bussiness or other things I do need.I never got those for grocery, do you?
