To beep or not to beep, seems to be more than a question. The beep makes couponers tremble and probably irritates cashiers.
If you have read a coupon, matched it up with an item and then heard the "oh-so-wonderful" beep at the register, you know what I'm talking about. There are legitimate coupons that will beep, as well as some that will not beep when used on items not intended for that coupon.
With coupons, you can't always rely on the barcode, which is the root of why a coupon beeps or doesn't beep. You have to go with the wording on the coupon. Not the picture, mind you, but the wording.
If a coupon states, "Not for trial or travel sizes," but someone tells you that it won't beep, do not use it.
If a coupon states a specific item but you learn it doesn't beep on an item not intended for the coupon, do not use it.
On the flip side, if you follow the wording and you have the correct product, correct size, etc, it may beep. Make sure you and the cashier read it and match it up with the product. If you are both unsure, ask for manager approval. The store has the right to refuse the coupon if it beeps, but, kindly ask for approval if you know it is correct.
A coupon will also beep if the item purchased is less than the coupon value. If you purchase a product that is $1 and the coupon is for $2 off the item, it will beep. Most stores will value down the coupon, which is a source of debate among couponers because the manufacturer will reimburse the store for the full value of the coupon, plus eight cents.
According to the coupon policy at Wal-Mart, the company gives the consumer full value of the coupon amount and allows the overage to go towards other purchases. The coupon will beep and the cashier has to verify the amount.

It is also important to note that Couponmom.com has the match-up of the Tide $2 with the travel size on her website. She is the official P&G spokesperson.
In the meantime, Wal-Mart has the right to refuse this coupon, but it will get reimbursed the full $2, plus eight cents, should the store accept it.
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This was originally published on June 30, 2011.
When Walmart released an updated coupon policy and price match guarantee in March 2011, couponers breathed a sigh of relief. However, it wasn’t long before specific questions were asked if price matching at a Walmart store was before, or after, coupon reward programs like Walgreen’s Register Rewards (RRs) and CVS’ Extra Care Bucks (ECBs).
The answer wasn’t always very clear. Consumers received varied answers from Walmart Customer Service representatives and store personnel. Adding to the confusion is the fact that many times Walmart managers didn’t seem to agree and the answer varied from store to store.
So, I asked Walmart Media Relations to clarify if their price match guarantee was before or after printable rewards which are only received after an item is purchased.
The example I presented was in the Walgreen’s 6/19-6/25 ad, which offered a $5 Register Reward for one Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor System, sale priced at $9.89. I asked to clarify if the price match would be for $9.89 or would it deduct the Register Reward, bringing the total to $4.89. (There was a $4 off Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor from the P&G, which would make the razor $.89 if the price match was after Register Rewards.)
According to Walmart spokesperson, Tara Raddohl, “Walmart will match a competitor’s sale price, the $9.89 sale price in your example. Register rewards are not coupons, so the amount of the register reward would not be deducted from the price.”
Raddohl also stated, "Walmart’s policy states that we will honor preferred shopping card prices for specific items at a specific price that are in a printed ad."
