First, according to Walmarts Facebook page it was a misprint in the add stating that they will take competitors coupons. It meant to say that they would honor competitors sales ad…. that sucks.
But, and this is where Walmart has major problems, is that some of you are saying that your stores have accepted competitors coupons for a while now.
I feel like a broken record, but this is where Walmart messes up. They give the decision to the store managers in most cases, who many times go against what is written in their own coupon policy, confusing customers and making them mad!
Some stores are awesome, they take competitors coupons, they price match, they take internet coupons without a hassle, and they like couponers. Other stores are just the opposite. The only solution that I can see to this is first, on their part, Walmart has to get some consistency. They can’t have a corporate coupon policy that not all stores follow. Second on us, we just have to find out what our store is willing to do, be good couponers and make the phone calls every now and then to get some changes made.
These are the facts for me: Walmart is the cheapest place to purchase things for my family, regardless of how frustrating they might be. Many of us ONLY have a Walmart to shop at and have to deal with it. I have fortunately moved to a place where I have more choices, but I know that many of you don’t have that choice and are stuck with Walmart so you have to make it the best experience possible. As long as my Walmart continues to price match and take coupons, I will keep shopping there.
I HATE hearing your frustrating stories. I have called corporate many times to find out the answer to question for you, only to be told something different every time I call. I will continue to do everything that I can and try to help and find the answers for you, please let me know what I can do to help.
What do you think? What will your store do?
