Policy Changes made 9-1-12

Wal-Mart Coupon Policy Changes:

  1. All Wal-Mart Register systems were updated to accept the GS1 Date bar Codes that most coupons have switched to and all eventually will go to.
  2. All coupons must be scanned on the flatbed scanners, the handheld scanners are not supposed to be used any longer.
  3. The coupon must scan. Cashiers/CSM’s or Managers are not allowed to override or manually enter coupons.
  4. If a coupon does not scan they are instructed to return the coupon to you. This applies to Printable Coupons and newspaper insert coupons.
