Every Day Low Prices at Walmart

By April 15, 2011Featured Posts

Saving money is crucial…and living better is even more important! Walmart has made a new committment to their customers, and I’m super excited to share it with you.

Walmart wants to make sure that YOU are getting the lowest prices, without hassel or running all over town to get them.  Did you know that you can take any competitors ad into Walmart and they will match the sale price?

We headed to my local Walmart to see just how ad matching works…

If you can’t see the video, you can watch it here.

And just how much did I save?

  • Peeps Easter Candy…$.98…everyday low prices
  • Yoplait Yogurt…10 for $5…saved $.80
  • General Mills cereal…3 for $10…saved $1.35
  • Fruit Roll-ups & Gushers…3 for $5…saved $1.02
  • M&M’s Easter Candy…$2.68…everyday low prices

Total Saved…$3.17

I could have saved even more if I would have thought ahead to take some coupons with me. Here are a couple I found…

Save $.55 on ONE Box of Original Cheerios or…

Save $1 on THREE boxes of General Mills cereals

Walmart has implented extensive associate training for Ad Match to help ensure the policy is executed consistently. Simply take your ads to the register and the cashier will match the ads. Happen to forget your ad? You don’t need to bring in the ad for Walmart to match the competitors lower price.

There are special circumstances though with the Ad Match ups…when the promotional price can be identified. For example – If an ad states “Buy one for $2.49, get one free” or “Buy one, Get one free. Save $2.49” Walmart can match that price. But if a competitor ad states “All cosmetics 50% off,”  then Walmart cannot match the promotional price since it’s not stated.

    I have an issue with the local walmart I shop at. I’ve completed their online surveys multiple times to try to get them to notice there is a price match problem in store #1965.

    I continually get arguments from cashiers about the match ads. Not with all, just some. They are anything but consistent about this. Some will let you tell them the price, some insist on the ad so they can scrutinize the ad……….holding up the line and making others behind you in line angry. Others will just match the ads without telling you, or sometimes they will ring up the sale price at another store and mention it to you.

    I have completed the store suggestion cards but it isn’t helping. I am so frustrated I just quit shopping there. I figure if I have to pay the regular price at Wal-mart I’ll skip it and go to the store with the sale in the first place as I don’t always get the ads, I see them at work from somebody else. Some people bring in the paper and we all look at the ads. It is a nice thing Wal-mart tries to do but it sure isn’t fool proof.

    I have also asked them to bring back many of my favorite items they removed but am told they aren’t interested. They stopped carrying them because they aren’t popular to other shoppers. I wonder why they were always sold out?

    Thanks! I’ll try it once, can’t know when I’ll stop in there again….but I’ll try to do a price match and see how it goes.
