I have never been a big fan of Walmart, but I will admit that I am loving the Walmart Price Matching policy now that Walmart has moved into my shopping area. Since I am on foot, I usually try to plan as many stores together in one small area, which ends up excluding a lot of local stores with great deals. Now that Walmart has implemented a great Walmart price matching policy, I can get the best deals without having to walk all over town, and I have noticed that a lot of their produce is from Florida, which makes it local for me. My weekly shopping trip still includes a lot of walking, as the stores are spread out quite a bit, but my son and I make a trip out of it.
I really do not save that much at Walmart, but that’s because I am not spending much. It is very easy to fall in the Walmart trap, so I try my best to stick to my list. One way I do so is by using a shopping basket only, because this is way I have no room for the extras.
Today’s Walmart Price Matching Trip:
2.31 lb Cabbage @ regular price $0.64/lb = $1.48 -> Price Matched w/Bravo @ $0.33/lb = $0.76 (Saved $0.72)
2 x Lettuce @ regular price ($1.48) = $2.96 -> Price Matched w/ Sedanos @ 2/$0.99 = $0.99 (Saved $1.97)
5 lbs Idaho potatos @ regular price $3.97 -> Price Matched w/Sedanos @ $1.88 (Saved $2.09)
Total out of pocket $4.69
Total saved $4.78
So far I have not run into any problems with trying to price match at Walmart. I simply go through the ads at home (make sure they are current), and then I write down my list. I list the prices by store, and at the check out I simply let them know that I would like to price match. I give the store and the price, and it is that simple. I do not even have to show the ad, although I always carry them just in case.
Do you use the Walmart Price Matching offer?
