Walmart Couponing/Saling 101
They do NOT have weekly sales, but they will PRICE MATCH their competitors and they also take coupons.

PRICE MATCHING POLICY:
Some things you need to know BEFORE you attempt to get a Price Matched at Walmart:

-You WILL have to speak with a manager/supervisor, which WILL take time, so go when it’s not SUPER busy!

-You may have to go to Customer Service for some price matches, and they WILL NOT let you cut the line just because you waited in line at the cash register!

-The item MUST BE EXACTLY the same as the items they carry (Even down to the item number on the box/description)

-They are VERY SPECIFIC about what they will and will not match-I’ve pasted this DIRECTLY from their webpage (http://walmartstores.com/10563.aspx)

Our Ad Match Guarantee-We’re committed to providing low prices every day. On everything. So if you find a lower advertised price on an identical product, tell us and we’ll match it. Right at the register.

We gladly match the price in the following types of ads:*

Buy one, get one free ads with a specified price

Example: Buy one for $2.49, get one free (BOGO)

Competitors’ ads that feature a specific item for a specified price at a specific retailer

Example: $2.99

Preferred shopping card advertised prices for specific item

that are in a printed ad and require a competitor’s shopping card for the discount to apply

For fresh produce and meat items

when the price is offered in the same unit type (lb. for lb.; each for each)

*The following are guidelines and limitations:

We will match any local competitor’s advertised price.

We do not require customers to have the ad with them to honor a competitor’s ad.

Items purchased must be identical to the ad (size, quantity, brand, flavor, color, etc.)

We DO NOT match the price in the following types of competitor ads:

Items that require a separate purchase to get the ad price

example: “Buy [item A] to get [item B] for $C”

Items with no actual price that require a purchase to get free product

example: “Buy both [items A & B] to get [item C] for free”

Items that require a purchase to get a competitors’ gift card

example: “Buy [item A] to get a $B gift card
