Here’s the Scoop about Walmart Ending Price Matching

June 18, 2016 UPDATE: For those of you who shop at the Tooele Walmart, I spoke with a cashier and manager on Saturday and they both confirmed that the Tooele Walmart will go back to it’s normal price matching, meaning that they will still continue to price match store brand for store brand. Management decided it would be a challenge if they make limitations for some things that they would or wouldn’t price match. If the size and price are in the ad, then the Tooele Walmart will price match it. I am glad that they are going back to the normal price matching.

If you haven’t heard, Walmart is ending it’s price matching at more than 500 stores beginning June 9, 2016. Head over here to this post where I give all of the details. I also made a video about it and have the scoop about what’s happening at the Tooele Walmart near me. Head over here to see the video on my YouTube channel.

Because this Walmart price matching change will affect many people, I didn’t post this week’s Grocery Deals to Price Match list. I want to hear from you if this price matching change affects you, if you will still be able to use my Grocery Deals to Price Match list, or if you can no longer use the list. Please comment below and let me know.  All of your comments and feedback will help me determine whether or not my weekly price match list will be of use to you and if I should continue it.

Walmart Ending Price Matching at 500 Stores (Starting June 9th)

walmart store

UPDATE: See my video here about Walmart ending price matching.

I heard that my Walmart in Tooele was ending price matching, then a few days later I heard that all of the signs were taken down and that they will continue to price match. Since I wasn’t sure what was happening, I stopped by my Walmart this week to talk with a manager and find out what was happening.

The manager at Tooele said that they will continue to price match, but there will be some changes. The biggest change is that they will no longer price match store brand for store brand. For example, you no longer can price match the Western Family brand for Walmart’s Great Value brand. The Tooele Walmart WILL continue to price match name brand products. So if you purchase Kraft, Lays, Betty Crocker, etc., as long as it’s the name brand that’s on sale and you get the exact size listed in the ad, then you will still be able to price match it.

Also, the manager at Walmart mentioned that they WILL continue to price match produce. I’m happy about that because that saves me a lot of money. However, she didn’t know yet if they would be price matching meats, unless it was a name brand meat such as Angus that was on sale at another store. I’ll keep you updated if I hear more.

The manager also recommended that you have the ads with you to be ready to show the cashiers, even though it says that ads aren’t required to price match. With these changes, your checkout experience will run more smoothly if you have the ads on hand.

Anybody else have a nearby Walmart that is ending price matching?

 

Beginning June 9, 2016, Walmart will be ending price matching at more than 500 stores, and instead, it will be implementing long-term price rollbacks on thousands of items. For more information, read this article published by Business Insider. Walmart isn’t releasing the which stores will be affected by this change. You’ll know if the change is at a Walmart near you when you go to Walmart and there are signs at the registers notifying you of the change.

Walmart is hoping that more customers will be encouraged to use the Walmart Savings Catcher App, a tool that scans your Walmart receipts and compares the prices you paid at Walmart to the prices advertised for the same items elsewhere in your area. If the app finds a lower advertised price, Walmart will issue a gift card in the amount of the difference.

If you find out your local Walmart will no longer price match, please leave a comment below with which city or state you are in or send an email to savingcentbycent@gmail.com. I’d like to know which of you my readers this affects.

What are your thoughts on this policy change?
