Recently I have received some comments about trouble printing SmartSource coupons. These instructions are taken from the ‘Get Help’ link that appears in the lower-left of the SmartSource print window. [Read more…]
Many of you have had questions (and complaints) about Walmart and their coupon policy. I want to share with you the information I received after speaking to a customer service representative.
I was told that ALL Walmart stores accept printable coupons as long are within the guidelines below. They said that if you ever have a problem with a store not accepting a coupon that is within the guidelines to give them a call at 1-800-966-6546. Below is a copy of their policy (which you can also find on their site here). I would suggest printing out a copy to take to the store in case you ever have a problem.
Walmart accepts the following types of coupons (see guidelines below):
Manufacturer coupons (Cents Off)
Free merchandise (or manufacturer’s Buy-One-Get-One-Free) coupons
Pharmacy (Advertising and Promotional) coupons
Soft drink container caps
The following are guidelines and limits:
Walmart only accepts coupons for merchandise we sell and only when presented at the time of purchase.
Coupons should have an expiration date and be presented within the valid dates. Walmart will not accept expired coupons.
Internet coupons should be legible and say “Manufacturer Coupon.” There should be a valid remit address for the manufacturer and a scannable bar code.
Only one coupon per item is permitted.
Use of 40 or more coupons per transaction will require approval by Customer Service Manager.
I have heard that many of you have had trouble printing Bricks coupons: that you keep getting a “please wait” or “please install printer” message. If this seems to be your problem I have found some information that may be helpful to you.
The problem is that most of these coupons have a link that is meant to be printed in a certain browser (i.e. Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari). When you try to print a coupon in a different browser than was intended, you will get one of those annoying messages
The trick below is made by just changing two characters in the link.
The following is a Firefox link:
Note the “wg” in the URL (I have put it in bold for you). This is telling you it is a Firefox link.
To make that link an Internet Explorer link, you will simply change the “wg” to “wi” or “vi”. It will take a little trial and error to determine which combination will be the fix. The easiest way to make this fix is to paste the original link into a Word document, make the change needed and then paste the corrected link into the address bar and press “enter” on the keyboard.
If the link had a “wi” or “vi” it would be an Internet Explorer link. To make it print in Firefox, just change the “wi” or “vi” to “wg”.
You can also use this trick to print coupons in Safari. Just replace the “wg”, “wi”, or “vi” to “xs”. And to get a Safari link to print in a different browser, change the “xs” to“wi” or “vi” for Internet Explorer or to “wg” for Firefox.
Follow these simple steps to make sure the rebate process is a smooth one.
- Get your rebate ready as soon as you’ve made the purchase. Waiting can mean forgetting.
- Write legibly on the rebate form and envelope.
- Make sure you have all the required items stapled together for mailing (i.e. receipt, UPC, rebate form).
- Make copies of all items or scan them into your computer.
- Keep copies of the items sent along with the company’s contact information together in a folder or on your computer.
- Make sure the envelope is postmarked by the correct date.
- Send large dollar rebates by certified mail.
- If you haven’t received your rebate within the time frame it should have been received in (usually 6 to 8 weeks) contact the company.
If you fill out a lot of rebates and could use help with organization, try Rebate Tracker.com. This is a free program that helps you organize your submissions, keep track of and report on the money owed to you and sends you reminders when your rebates are due back.
New to saving at Rite Aid? This is a good place to start.
Rite Aid offers many deals each month in the form of single check rebates. A list of the rebates for the current month can be found in the rebate directory at the front of the store.
Rite Aid store coupons can be found in-ad or they may have a coupon book at the front of the store.
Rite Aid store coupons, single check rebates, and manufacturer coupons can all be combined for great savings.
Rite Aid Rebate How To:
Rite Aid rebates can be taken care of at their website so you don’t have to worry about stamps or forms. Each time you make a Single Check Rebate purchase, enter your receipt information on the site. At the end of the month (or up to about a month later) you can request your check. Rite Aid will only issue one rebate check each month so make sure not to request your check until you have made all your rebate purchases for that month. The check will arrive about 2-3 weeks later.

Do you want to get 100% FREE full-sized products from CVS? Do you hear a lot of talk about ECBs and just don’t understand? If so, you are in the right place.
Before You Start – You will need to sign up for a CVS Extra Care card. This can be done in-store or online here. Once you have your card, create an account at CVS.com and register your card. This way you will be able to view your rewards online and earn rewards when making online purchases. It is important to check “Yes” when asked if you would like to receive emails from CVS. This is one way to get the coupons I mention later in this post.
What Are Extra Care Bucks– You earn Extra Care Bucks (otherwise known as ECBs) by purchasing qualifying items. Each time you purchase one of these items and use your Extra Care card, a slip will be printed at the bottom of your receipt showing the amount you have earned.
The slips can be used like cash, though they do have some restrictions: prescriptions, alcohol, gift cards, lottery, money orders, postage stamps, pre-paid cards and tobacco are excluded (restrictions may vary by area) and no cash back can be given if the ECBs you are paying with total more than your actual total.
Remember to save your slips and keep them in a safe place. Each slip has a barcode which the cashier will have to scan when you check out. The barcode links them to your Extra Care account so they can only be used by you with your card. They also have expiration dates, and even though some cashiers can “push through” expired ECBs, you don’t want to risk losing them.
ECB deals can be found in the weekly flyer and list how many of an item can be purchased and still earn ECBs. This limit usually ranges from 1 to 5 of each item. CVS has discontinued the monthly Extra Care Value book and replaced it with a Clip Free coupon book. This book can be found at the front of the store where the weekly flyers are located. Unlike the Extra Care Value book, it is rare for there to be monthly ECBs deals listed in the Clip Free book.
You will also earn 2% of your in-store and online purchases in the form of ECBs and $1 in ECBs for every two prescriptions purchased in-store or online. These ECBs will print out on the bottom of your receipt once every three months. Remember to have your Extra Care card scanned with each purchase or your account with not be given credit.
