Have you seen the new Starbucks logo?

As revealed today, this new logo marks the 40th anniversary of the famous siren!

“I like the new mark because I feel that we’ve unleashed the Siren, a mythological figure who represents the romance and creativity that inspired the founders of Starbucks 40 years ago. I hope that unleashing that energy – that mojo – will keep us (and you) inspired for the next 40 years.” -- Thomas P., interactive content manager

NEW Walmart Coupon Policy with Overage

NEW: “Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase.”

Thanks to Deal Seeking Mom for this explanation on the new policy:

The two biggest changes that I see are that 1) Walmart will now be offering change back or overage on your transaction when a coupon exceeds the price of a product and 2) Walmart will now accept Catalina coupons that are clearly marked as manufacturer's coupons.

Walmart will accept the following coupons:
  • manufacturer's coupons
  • Internet printable coupons
  • competitor's coupons that have a specific price listed
  • soft drink container caps
  • Catalina coupons clearly labeled as "manufacturer coupon"
Provided they meet the following criteria:
  • one coupon per item
  • coupons must have an expiration date and be redeemed prior to expiration
  • change or overage will be given if a coupon exceeds a purchase
  • coupon must be for an item Walmart sells
  • coupons must be presented at the time of purchase
Walmart does not accept the following coupons:
  • Internet printable coupons for a free product
  • competitor's coupons for dollars, cents or percentage off, B1G1 free, and double or triple value
Management approval will be required for:
  • transactions with 40 or more coupons
  • any coupon with a value over $20
  • $50 or more in coupons in a single transaction

Of course it's going to take some time for cashiers to be trained on these procedures, but in the meantime, here's a nice printable version of the Walmart coupon policy that you can carry with you! I'd recommend setting your printer to draft mode or, even better, black and white when printing.

Some of you may disagree, but I believe this is a positive step for Walmart. Many of you have questioned what stores are doing with the overage from coupons in the past, so I'm thrilled to see a store finally take a positive stance on it. It seems like Walmart is really trying to accommodate coupon users!
