According to the Walmart Price Match Policy, Walmart will match the price of an item in a Competitor’s Ad if the price is better than the Walmart Price. This is limited to local ads and they do not require you to bring in the ad with you. However, I would recommend taking the Walmart Price Match Policy with you avoid any confusion or trouble at the register. For information on using coupons at Walmart, check out the Walmart Coupon Policy.
For the best savings, I suggest price matching Produce and Meat from other stores because smaller local stores often offer lower prices on these items.
Remember that the items you want to price must be identical or there will not be a Price Match!
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
- Preferred shopping card prices for specific items that are in a printed ad
- For fresh produce and meat items when the price is offered in the same unit type (lb. for lb.; each for each)
- Internet Pricing. See the Online Price Match Policy to find out what is honored in Walmart Stores
*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; but we do require the store to verify the ad if there is a difference in price greater than 25% from the competitor.
- The system will prompt for supervisor verification at a 50% reduction in price or greater.
- Items purchased must be identical to the ad (size, quantity, brand, flavor, color, etc.). No substitutions
- In all situations Walmart reserves the right to limit BOGO quantities to one per customer or household
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
- Buy one, get one free (BOGO) ads with no actual price given
- Going out of business or closeout prices
- Percentage off
- example: “All mascara, 40% off”
- Competitors’ private label price promotions
- A specific price that omits a specific characteristic of an item (Example: $9.50 on “all sizes or quantities” of an assortment)
We do not honor:
- Ads when the actual price for items cannot be determined
- Competitor pricing on One Hour Guarantee Items
- Misprinted ad prices of other retailers
- “Going out of business” sales or “closeout” prices
- Walmart reserves the right to update or modify the terms of the Ad Match (Competition) Policy and its associated pricing strategies at any time
