I've shopped at walmart for years and have couponed for years, I've a very "good" couponer I don't empty shelves, I don't read the barcode, I get exactly what the coupon says. Some days I go in and get several items with coupons.
My family depends on me stretching my budget to make ends meet and still eat well. I've never had a problem at walmart till today... and I didn't have many just 3 coupons, thank goodness and I'm sure the cashier was happy about that to. *She was awesome by the way and I felt bad for her b/c she said she had already been yelled at for the same reason I was having problems.* The coupons wouldn't scan and they aren't allowed to type them in anymore...Even though two of them she peeled off the product herself for me to use.
And she could see that I had the correct products. I just had her take them off my total and they will be re-shelved (maybe not the ham though not sure how they do refrigerated items). It is very disappointing and discouraging that you all would start doing this, I could see if the items didn't match the coupon or even if it was printed coupons or from the paper, but really when it comes from the product in your store.
I will no longer (though I know it will not hurt the store) be shopping there and am sharing this all over the place to have some people avoid the frustration I had today. There are other stores that will gladly take my coupons, it just means having to spend a bit more time running around town.
