Free soda at Walmart


My middle son had field day at school today, and I mostly just wanted to skip grocery shopping. Still, I know that if I did skip grocery shopping, I would just end up sending my husband for stuff….and in the long run that would cost more. So after my middle son’s field day, my youngest son and I jumped on the bus and headed for the stores. At Walmart we were able to pick up free soda, and we also got some great Walmart price match deals.

I gotta admit that Walmart is growing on me, and I have never been a fan in the past. The price match policy is pulling me in week after week, because Walmart are less rigid about price matching than Target, which means less hassle. All I need to do is bring in a list of the best deals from all the competitor’s current ads, and then I give the price to the cashier. I usually do most price matching on produce, meat, and dairy.

Have you gotten any great Walmart price match deals this week?

  1. I love the price matching it saves running to three places.

    Now what I really want to know is how did you get all that soda and watermelon and the little guy home on the bus!

    • That would have looked crazy, wouldn’t it? My husband picked up the kids from school, and then they came by to pick us afterward. I made sure that Walmart was our last stop on the shopping trip too….If I’d have to walk to all the different stores, it would take me all day, so I am very thankful for Walmart’s price match policy. I do price match at Target once in a while, but they sure don’t make it easy to price match.

  3. What store did you price match at Walmart????

    • Mary, the stores mentioned above are all local South Florida stores. Ask your local Walmart, which store they will price match with. Mine basically said that all local grocery stores, supermarkets and drugstores would work. Even in my area, the friendliness and knowledge when it comes to price matching seems to vary from store to store though.

  4. I always do price matching at Walmart especially during back to school time.
