Wal-Mart Price Matching Program

Email  Print Print  

If you shop at Wal-Mart, starting saving your receipts. Today marks the first day that Wal-Mart’s new holiday price match program, as reported by CNN Money last week. From November 1st through December 25th, they will give you a gift card for the difference between your price, from your receipt, and the competitor’s price as a gift card.

For the record, Wal-Mart has always price matched local competitors based on a series of specific criteria at the time of purchase:

  • Buy one get one free ads with a specified price,
  • A listed price that features a specified item,
  • Preferred shopping card prices for specific items that are printed in an ad,
  • Fresh produce and meat items when the price is offered in the same unit type (lb. for lb., each for each)

They will not match:

  • Items that require a separate purchase to get the ad price,
  • Items with no actual price that require a purchase to get free product,
  • Items that require a purchase to get a competitor’s gift card,
  • Buy one get one free with no price listed,
  • Going out of business or closeout prices,
  • Percentage off,
  • Private label price promotions.

What separates this program is that you can now get a refund if you find the price listed cheaper elsewhere. I don’t know how much money people can expect to save but every little bit counts!

    Careful though, I couldn’t get Walmart to price match a sale they were having a week after I purchased a small hand vacuum. Even though I had the receipt.
