Testimonal: Walmart Paid Me to Shop
Vanessa, one of our very own Money Saving Queen staff members, printed the new Walmart Corporate Coupon Policy, gathered some FREE and high dollar coupons, headed out to the store and was paid $2.72 in cash to take over $24 worth of items home. Read below in her own words how she did it:
"Last week, Walmart released a new coupon policy and one part of that policy states, "Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase." This means that any overage from an item may be refunded to the customer in cash or applied to the rest of the person's transaction. I strategically decided ahead of time that I would take that overage in cash.
I had four of the $3/1 Gain Fabric Softener or Sheets coupons that came out in one of the recent Red Plum inserts. I also used a small stack of FREE product coupons that I received via snail mail. At Walmart, I found found the smaller boxes of Gain Fabric Sheets for only $1.76 each, and since the coupon had no size restrictions, I was able to get each box for FREE with $1.24 in overage per box. This overage helped to absorb the tax for each item in my transaction.
Now, not everyone at Walmart is up to speed on the new policy, so it's important to be patient if things don't go as planned. Also, take the Coupon Policy with you. I had to show it to them because the cashier had no idea she could give cash back.
So, when all was said and done, the cashier handed me $2.72 and I walked out the door. Nothing beats getting paid to shop!"
Great job, Vanessa!
