Walmart Doubling coupons!

Aug 5th, 2011

Okay, before I get you too excited I have to say that there are only certain Walmart’s that are participating in this ‘TEST Doubling Coupon’ Event.

Select Walmart’s across the country have decided to start doubling coupons, many of them up to 99¢, but some of them are even doubling $1.00 coupons. I was reading a lot of the comments from I Heart the Mart here, and many people are saying that they are manually having to do it.  You have to present the item, with the coupon, and then they have to manually double it.  It sounds like this is something that Walmart is heading towards, but I won’t hold my breath.  It is runnning in ‘test markets’ only as far as I know.  When I called around today, no one had any idea what I was talking about, even management.  So be prepared for a deer in the headlights look when you ask :)

The good thing is that I did find one Walmart in NY that is doing it, check out which one below!

I called around to a few local Walmart’s today to see what they said:

  • Utah – there are 7 Utah stores that double coupons on Tuesdays.
  • Oswego, NY – NO
  • Fulton, NY – NO
  • Saratoga Springs, NY – YES Double coupons up to 99¢
  • Albany, NY – NO
  • Watertown, NY –  NO
  • 1 Willmar, MN -YES
  • 1 Watertown, SD – YES
  • 1 Aberdeen, SD -YES
  • 1 Montevideo, MN – YES
  • Utica, NY- NO
  • Charleston, WV – YES
  • Goldsboro, NC – NO
  • Wichita, KS – NO
  • Huntington, WV – YES
  • Wayne, WV – YES
  • Ripley WV – YES

*So it looks like most of the stores are in West Virginia and Utah, with one NY store that I could find….

Let us know if your Walmart decides to double!

        Caitra, so they will only double coupons on those specific items in an ad that states they are doubling? For example, right now only the items in the Safeway ad will have coupons doubled? Glad you posted, I’m in Tucson as well (:

          Oh wait, sorry I haven’t had my coffee yet XD I guess you just mean if you can show someone in town is doubling coupons (as in Safeway), Walmart will too? I am guessing they are only doubling 50¢ and less coupons too?

          I work at the walmart on cortaro road. this is the understanding i have so far by talking to the Customer Service Managers and trying some of it our for my self: they will match any ad at any store ad long as the price is listed in the ad. they will accept other competitor store coupons as well… what they do is a price adjustment for the count of the store coupon. then, as long as you can present an ad that states they are doubling or even “all coupons are a dollar” they will also adjust the price of the product for the amount difference of the coupon to a dollar. I have found it very beneficial because you can combine all the bests of each store in one location: lowest price, use of store and manufacturer coupons on the same product, and coupons can equal a dollar. Please make it easier on the cashier by having all your ad-matches separated and kept together. Also, have the ads and all coupons to show with each item that you need to have a adjusted. Good Luck!

    I’ve doubled coupons in the store in Saratoga Springs/Wilton last week and it was a lot of fun! Most cashiers don’t know about it so you’ll have to be prepared for that. They won’t do it automatically, only if you ask. I’ve heard that Walmarts near other doubling stores (PC) may also double but it’s up to the store manager to make the call. :-)

    I’ll keep my eyes open here in AZ. I have a really old Walmart just a mile away but a Supercenter about 8 miles away.

    I checked at all of the Walmarts in Bakersfield, CA. and found that none of the stores here are doubling, although one manager said that he heard that the Rosedale Walmart was on the list. Fingers crossed.

    Heck yeah, we do!! And I am NOT driving to another state (Ohio) to double, either. Whatever money I’d save on couponing would be lost in gas. Especially this time of year!

    I shopped at the Wal Mart in Saratoga, NY and I had to ask around before finally finding someone knowledgeable on the subject (which was a supervisor). She said that stores that are in close proximity to grocery stores that offer double coupons do it, but you have to ask the cashier to double. She also explained that they’ll match any of price choppers coupons (powerade, coke products this week), so instead of leaving to go to PC afterwards, I worked all my deals at wal mart.

    I work at, and know multiple people who also work at different locations in the Omaha, NE area Walmarts and no mention of doubling has been made to associates by management as of yet…but if they do I’d be so excited, as I could double coupons AND get my discount for working there!!

      Me too! The Nitro, WV Walmart off the Cross Lanes exit is doubling coupons up to 99 cents as well. At the same time the Kroger’s in Cross Lanes has put out a more restrictive coupon policy and still only doubling to 50 cents. Thanks Kroger’s for allowing me to my food shopping at one store again.
