1. All Walmart Register systems were updated to accept the GS1 Date bar Codes.
(These codes are harder to counterfeit therefore the GS1 Date bar Codes will be the norm of all coupons in the near future)
2. All coupons must be scanned on the flatbed scanners, the handheld scanners are not supposed to be used any longer.
3. The coupon must scan, Cashiers/CSM’s or Managers are not allowed to override or manually enter coupons.
4. If a coupon does not scan they are instructed to return the coupon to you. This applies to Printable Coupons and newspaper insert coupons.
Here's how I see it, they are only hurting themselves and will possibly have to restock a TON of items. As it is already a lot of the coupons have to be scanned on the handheld scanner at my location, so #2 of the policy change will just make a ton of extra work for them.
What's your thoughts? Let us know!
