How to Shop for Free with Coupon Overage.
Today I’m going to talk to you about something that every couponer loves, and that is coupon overage. There are a few stores in Canada that allow coupon overage, but this video is specifically about Walmart. How to get coupon overage at Walmart.
What is coupon overage?
Coupon overage is when you purchase a product that costs less than what your coupon value is. For example, let’s say you purchase a bottle of Pantene shampoo and it’s on sale for $1.50. You have a coupon that has a value of $2.
That means, you will be able to use that $2 coupon on your $1.50 bottle of Pantene and you will actually make $0.50 from Walmart.
What can you use the coupon overage for?
There are two things you can do with that coupon overage. First, you could take that cash back, or you could use that coupon overage toward other items that you’re purchasing. Things like milk and produce and meat – things that don’t often have coupons available for them.
This is what I personally recommend, but of course, if you don’t have anything else to purchase, you can always take the cash back.
How to get coupon overage
So, how do you get this coupon overage (other than finding the cheap product and having the great coupon)? What you need to do is the same thing you do when you use regular coupons at Walmart – just hand your coupons to the cashier.
If you ever have any problems with a cashier refusing to give you coupon overage, make sure that you have the Walmart coupon policy printed and with you so that you can show them that they’re supposed to give you cash back or give you the coupon overage toward your other purchases.
You should always have this policy with you when you go shopping at Walmart – just in case you come across any problems when you’re checking out.
