Walmart Doubling Coupons? Say it Ain't So!

One of my weekend workshop participants told me that Walmart is doubling coupons now! This would be big news in the couponing world, so I had to investigate.

Turns out the Walmart in Leland, outside of Wilmington here, IS doubling coupons! The Wilmington Walmarts are not currently doubling.

I spoke with Shannon, from the Leland Walmart. She told me, "Basically, we are trying to compete with Harris Teeter. Whatever they do, we're going to do. So, on the weeks Harris Teeter has Super Doubles, we will, too. On the weeks that they have triples, we will too!"

Even better, Shannon went on to tell me that the Leland Walmart will have NO LIMITS on how many coupons they will double. So, whereas Harris Teeter will only double 20 coupons a day, Walmart will double an unlimited amount of coupons. That's pretty impressive and I'm sure it may give Harris Teeter a run for their money.

With that said, I'm not abandoning Harris Teeter anytime soon. The Leland Walmart is pretty far from where I live and I like the convenience of having a Harris Teeter right up the road. I am not a fan of Walmart's crowds and spotty customer service. However, as a deal-seeker, I am excited about the competition and the possibilities that will be opened up with Walmart doubling coupons. I hope the program spreads to other Walmarts because competition between the grocery stores means one thing to us couponers- MORE deals!


  1. I didn't know this about WM at Leland! Competition is a good thing, especially with coupons :)

  2. I live in Leland & I just found this out by a lady that attended the coupon class you taught! I am so excited & I am glad to have found your blog. Take care!
