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?

Grocery Deals to Price Match (Aug. 12-18) + Walmart Policy Update

Grocery Deals to Price Match

Walmart has updated it’s ad match policy. One of the changes that might affect this Grocery Deals list the most is that Walmart will not price match competitors’ private label promotions, which means we won’t be able to price match the Great Value brand for the Kroger or Western Family brand. As of right now, the Walmart I shop at is still price matching the store brand item for the Great Value brand item. The cashiers haven’t said anything to me about not doing it. 

I’m still going to post the Store Brand prices each week on this Grocery Deals list, but there is a possibility that you’ll have to run to the store listed below to get the deal on the store brand price. For instance, if Smith’s has Kroger Tomato Sauce on sale for $0.20, then you’ll need to run to Smith’s to grab the deal instead of being able to price match the Great Value Tomato Sauce.

This change in Walmart’s ad match policy is frustrating. I’m still planning on posting this Grocery Deals list weekly because I think there are deals you can price match that will save you money. Please let me know if you’ve seen this change at the Walmart where you shop. And how has this affected your grocery shopping?

 

After looking through the weekly ads, here are this week’s best grocery deals in Utah, August 12-18, 2015, that you’ll want to price match at Walmart, Target, or another store that prices matches in your area. If you do price match at Target, you’ll need to take the ads with you to show them.

The items highlighted in red are really good deals that you should stock up on. And some products have coupons that you can use to get an even better deal after price matching.
