Boise - Extreme couponing appears to be a growing trend and in the current state of our nation's economy, who can blame coupon lovers for wanting to save money? Apparently WalMart can.

A Boise, Idaho woman claims she has been banned for life from the conglomerate retail chain, WalMart. It wasn't just one store that barred her from shopping there, but every store in the United States. The reason it happened was an argument over coupons.

April Cuevas, who has taken up the appropriately-titled hobby of "extreme couponing" in order to save money, stated that she was informed WalMart's policy known as "Ad Match" had undergone changes the previous week. As such, she took it upon herself to discuss these matters with one of the store managers and see if she could get a better grasp on the concept.
She also decided to video record it all on her iPhone - from which an argument transpired.
According to a statement to Fox 12 Idaho, Cuevas said "the action wasn't welcomed by the WalMart manager..." who told her she had to "...pay full price [for] the groceries or leave." Cuevas complied with the order, but after that strange happenings began to take place.
On another trip to the store, Cuevas was oblivious to the fact that she was being followed until her 16-year-old daughter said so. Apparently, an employee pursued her through the parking lot and gave her the ultimatum to go back to the store due to the fact she had committed a crime.
She then went to a gas station and contacted authorities.

Cuevas gave them a report stating the plain-clothes employee said to her, "you're leaving the scene of a crime." She also said that she had no idea the retail giant had prohibited her from ever entering any Walmart in the country for the rest of her life until the police officer let her know. Apparently the store managed to reach the cops before April could.
The issue may not have even been the coupons themselves and Cuevas said she couldn't help but ponder the idea that it could have been the argument, or the recording of video footage with her iPhone that ended up getting her banned. Her suspicion - as well as her husband's - is that it was the video.

Rennie Cuevas - April's husband - said he is frightened that WalMart will attempt to ban him as well for asserting his views on their policies. And with the economy the way it is, April said penny pinching is all but crucial.

Ultimately, April Cuevas just wants to know one thing and one thing only: why WalMart would go to such extremes as to ban her from every store in America. "I didn't do anything wrong..." she said, "... and I would also like to go back to WalMart."

First of all, what's to stop her from going to any other Walmart? How are they supposed to know she is 'banned'? I highly doubt they contacted corporate seeing as they probably have better things to do than to keep someone who doesn't agree with a policy out of their stores. I don't even get what she did.

I have read the quote twice and still don't understand what she did wrong.

What can she do? Pursue legal action? What could she possibly win? Shell just go on shopping at other superstores. Life goes on.

And that WalMart employee that followed them deserves to be punched.

Pretty much that.
The best I can make of it is that the woman wanted clarification on rules regarding vouchers, and the manager of the store perma-banned her because she wanted to record on her iPhone what he said.

I'm sorry, but Americans can be odd sometimes :confused:

She should shop in wal-mart out of spite. Those bastards screwed her good, and she did nothing wrong. And how are you going to ban someone and tell everyone she's banned except her? Like don't you think that's something she should know?

I'd love to know if there's more to this than the article states. I'd bet she got banned because of the video, but it still makes no sense to ban her from every Walmart in America.

She's better off. Walmart's quality is complete **** anyway. She needs to go to Target!

doesn't every city in America have a local grocery store/supermarket? Why shop at walmart anyway?

Wow... that was a bit severe. She wanted to take a video explaining a change in the policies, and they banned her from every store for life for that? What happened to free speech? And why wasn't she told she was banned?

Americans are STUPID! :hea:

Don't you think that's a bit inconsiderate? There are many American members here, and all of the ones that I know are anything but stupid.

She wanted to record a video of her talking with a store manager on her iPhone, because their policies on using coupons had changed. They banned her (without her knowledge) for that, which is a tad extreme.

Well, there are other stores for her to go to.

And the world is stoopid, which means you lot, rest of the world. :tea::ton:

I think Romantics was extending on my comment where I said Americans can be odd. Seeing as Romantics is American, I think it's more acceptable for him to say Americans are stupid than if I'd said it (because I'm British).

So... was the crime recording a conversation without consent? Aside from being one of those pain in the ass customers who gets nuts over coupons, that's the only thing I can gather that she may have done wrong. But even the laws regarding that seem to vary a lot.

I think so. I don't even understand why she was recording the conversation in the first place. I'm not clear on the law either but I think a store can ban someone if they want to, after all it's their property and I don't think they have to let everyone enter the store if they don't want to. But I think if they were going to ban her they should have said it to her first before going to the police. That seems a bit messed up to complain to the police without even telling her what was going on.
