Walmart’s Updated Price Match Policy!

I have to commend Walmart for continuing to update their policies to make them more consumer-friendly! If you haven’t heard about their updated coupon policy, you can read about it here.

Here are the highlights of their new price match policy:

The will now price match the following types of ads:

-Buy One, Get one Free Ads with a specified price
Ex:  Buy one for $2.49, get one free

-Competitor’s ads that feature a specific item for a specified price (they will even honor the store’s advertised price if you have to use a customer loyalty care at that store to get that price!)

-Ads for fresh produce and meat items when the price offered is the same unit type (ex: pound for pound for each)

They also added this:
-We will match any local competitor’s advertised price
-We do not require customers to have the ad with them to honor the competitor’s ad (WOW!)
-Items purchased must be identical to the ad (size, quantity, brand, flavor, etc.)

They do not honor:
-Internet pricing
-Ad misprints
-Competitor ads outside the store’s local trade territory
-Percentage off ads
-Private label price promotions (this is kind of a bummer for me because they used to allow you to do this if you bought the comparable item from their private label)
-BOGO free ads with no actual price listed
-Items that involve purchasing products to get a gift card

You can view the full policy here. (I recommend printing it for yourself and keeping it with you!)
