Price Match at Walmart

One of the best parts about shopping at Walmart is their Ad Match Guarantee.   This policy allows you to match the price of any item they carry in the store with a local competitor’s advertised sale price.  In other words, Walmart will give you any product for the same price as another local store is selling the item for, as long as they are identical products and follow these guidelines:

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.
  • 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)

*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
  • 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

We do not honor:
  • Ads when the actual price for items cannot be determined.
  • Internet pricing
  • Misprinted ad prices of other retailers
  • "Going out of business" sales or "close out" prices

By price matching at Walmart, you can save a lot of time compared to going to each store to get their deals each week.  All you have to do is tell the cashier each item that you would like to price match, how much the price is, and which store the sale is at.  According to their policy, you do not have to show the other store’s flyer with the item and price; however, you may find it easier to do so to avoid any issues.

**Note**  Please verify with your local Walmart to see the distance in which they will price match competitor’s stores.  The distance is determined by each store manager, and can vary by location.
