Is Walmart Coupon Policy Changing?!?!?

So I have been reading and hearing from the “Couponing Grapevine” that Walmart had changed their coupon policy this week. Well already Walmart is one of my least favorite places to shop and this just added to my reasons why. The rumor was that Walmart would no longer except computer printed coupons that were in black and white. Well for savers like myself, I always print my coupons in black and white ink to save on my color ink which is always more expensive.

So I took my concerns to Walmart Corporate and I was told that Walmart’s current coupon policy is online and current. So here it is straight from their corporate page  (word for word) and no where does it say they won’t except black and white printed coupons. In fact it states they do!
