So I've heard and seen a lot of people taking advantage of the Ad Match Guarantee at Wal-Mart but never took it upon myself to try it out. That was until yesterday. WOW, did it make a difference. I got all of our groceries for only $52. Our last bill at Wal-Mart was around $130, so this was truly awesome! The bill dropped so much by a combination of price matching from other stores and coupons. Find out how I did it, the deals I found and the guidelines to follow!
All I did was put my list together by looking through the kitchen and finding out what we need. Then I looked up the ads to 4 of our local stores and found out the prices of the items I needed. Then I looked up printable coupons from all our favorite sources. Took my list to Wal-Mart, including the prices of the items at the other stores, put everything in the cart and went to check out. Now I was a little nervous because I didn't have the actual ads with me but that was no problem. The cashier asked if I had any price matching items and if I had separated them (which I did) and he started asking me how much my items were. IT WAS AWESOME! Here were some of the deals I found.
Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice: $3.98 at Wal on sale for $2.88 at another local store.
Bananas: $0.59/lb at Wal and $0.49/lb and another local store.
7-UP: over a dollar at Wal on sale for $0.95 at another store.
Those are just a couple of deals that I remember from yesterdays list. Then pairing some of these deals and others with coupons was how this trip helped my wallet. There are a couple guidelines to abide by when using the Wal-Mart Price Matching Policy. Here they are straight from the website:
