Coupon Overage Strategies at Walmart
If you are a Walmart shopper, this post is for you! We’re talking about coupon overage strategies! My favorite line of Walmart’s coupon policy is: “If coupon value exceeds the price of the item, the excess may be given to the customer as cash or applied toward the basket purchase.” This is HUGE for those of us that coupon and this post will give you three coupon overage strategies for shopping at Walmart.
I would imagine that most people use the “excess” or overage towards the rest of their shopping. If you do, do you have a game plan for how to use that overage? Here are three strategies for you:
- Purchase items that never go on sale
- Purchase items there are never coupons for
- Purchase items that have a higher out of pocket price (ie: coffee)
These are just a few ideas of items that never or rarely go on sale or have coupons:
- fresh fruits and veggies
- walmart brand black bean and corn salsa (my favorite salsa)
- toilet paper if my stockpile is low
- dry beans and legumes (bean soup mix, lentils, green peas, ect)
- classico pesto (I have never seen a coupon for the pesto)
- sabra hummus (Walmart has the lowest price on this)
- fish (real fish not the nasty fish sticks)
- specialty items (such as this particular Thai peanut sauce I love and have never seen a coupon)
So, how do you use your overage? Do you get cash back or do you usually apply it to the rest of your purchase?
