You don't see extreme couponers at Wal-Mart?

Every episode I've seen of Extreme Couponers they're in other grocery stores. I had coupon-using customers when I was a Wal-Mart cashier, but I don't think any of them ever got down to the savings this series indicates people are getting to.

If you coupon, do you coupon at Wal-Mart? What stores do you go to?

  • Walmart dosn't have those loyalty saver cards and they don't do double coupons. These two can add up on savings if you use them.

  • I use coupons, but our Walmart won't take any printed coupons so I can't use a lot of internet deals. I would love to be able to use a shopper program like the grocery stores on the extreme couponing, but our nearest one that has this kind of program is a 75 mile round trip and in the next state. No way this is gonna save me money with the price of gas.

  • I've never seen anyone anywhere extreme coupon. I feel like I am high on the ole hawg if I save $30 in one visit.

  • I use coupons, but I never shop at Wal-Mart. I can save far more money even before the coupons at the local King Soopers than I ever do at Wal-Mart

  • I agree with tnunley...it has a lot to do with not doubling coupons or having sales/rewards they can pair their coupons with.

  • I used to ad match when I worked there...which was nice

    I saw a few people try to use a lot of coupons- the thing was that they tried to get a larger size than was on the ocupons and then they got righteously pissed when they wouldn't go through and we would not honor them. I used to cringe when I saw people coming with their lists and handful of coupons...it was almost always a nightmare! The other thing was the ad matching- people didn't know the policies and it always caused issues

  • They only shop at places that double. Walmart doesn't. However, they will take printed coupons because you can print some from their website. Also remember, they price match.

  • I usually shop at Kroger with my coupons because if I use a coupon for 50 cents they will add 15 cents to that to make it 65 off. that goes for any coupon under 60 cents.
