Save Time and Money Grocery Shopping

Published on August 27th, 2014

One of the largest monthly expenses in American households is groceries. Sometimes, shopping for different grocery items at different stores can save you money, but it can also eat up a lot of your time. If you don’t have the time and need to shop at just one store, the Walmart Ad Match Guarantee comes in handy.

All you have to do is take the sales flier from any local store into Walmart and they will match any local competitor’s advertised price for the identical item in the ad (size, quantity, brand, flavor, etc.) such as:

  • 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
  • Prices on fresh produce and meat items when the price is offered in the same unit type

Just like shopping at multiple stores, the Ad Match Policy allows you to take advantage of the best sale prices at various stores. The only difference is that you save time and gas money because you aren’t driving all over town.

The amount you save by using this system depends on how much you usually spend and how much you price-match. You can save at least $5-$10 each shopping trip plus the gas money and time.

The only risk of price-matching is if you start buying things you don’t need or weren’t planning on buying. If you are susceptible to doing this, price-matching may not be the best option for you.
