Walmart Logo (matchups)There has been a change in the way you can coupon at Walmart, and trust us you’ll like it. As many of you know Walmart has a policy called “Ad Match Guarantee”. Essentially Walmart is willing to match the price of other store deals, but with a few limitations. Walmart’s new policy is to match the following types of ads:

  • Buy one, get one free ads with a specified price 
  • 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)


Here are some things to keep in mind in regards to Walmart’s price matching program:

  • Walmart will match any local competitor’s advertised price
  • Walmart does 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.)


And most notably their price matching program is not valid for the following scenarios:

  • 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 competitors’ gift card
  • Buy one, get one free (BOGO) ads with no actual price given
  • Going out of business or closeout prices
  • Competitors’ private label price promotions
  • Ads when the actual price for items cannot be determined
  • Internet pricing

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
