We all want the lowest price no matter what it is we are buying and many of us hate going from store to store. With Walmart’s ad match policy, you don’t have to do that.
How it works:
If you find a lower price advertised at another store, simply notify an associate, who will match the advertised price at the register (the item must be identical). In order to assure that the policy is implemented across all stores, Walmart has provided extensive associate training on their ad match policy.
A couple of ways it works:
- Buy one, get one free ads with a specified price
- Competitors’ ads that feature a specific item for a specified price at a specific retailer
- Preferred shopping card advertised prices for specific item
I always recommend you read the entire policy.
I’ll be testing the ad match policy two times for you guys. The other day, I used my iphone with the competitors ad and lower price on it. I simple showed the associate and they gave me the lower the price without any questions asked! If you look, you’ll see the Doritos are $1.99 at the competitor’s store. At Walmart, they were $2.50. That’s a fifty cent difference so I asked them to match the price.
You can see they rang up at $2.50 and she took that price off and gave me the $1.99 price.
I had no issues at all and plan to do a video for you with another ad match scenario. Now Walmart’s ad match policy claims that you don’t need an ad and while I love the concept, I’m skeptical of the associate actually following through. Stay tuned for that!
Have you tried ad matching at Walmart yet?
