I know many of you shop at Walmart and many of you use price matching as a way to save money. Walmart was the first big company to use price matching as a marketing tool and depending on the customer service in your store it’s an easy way to get great prices on items.
Starting as early as June 9th, in a small select market (500 stores) Walmart will start special long-term rollbacks on thousands of products throughout those stores like paper products and food. These rollbacks are going to be even lower than the other Walmart’s prices and because of this, those Walmart will no longer be able to price match at the checkout register.
Walmart understands how important price matching is to their customers and that is why they are working hard to bring you the lowest prices upfront every day.
NOTE: Right now this will only affect the 500 stores with long-term rollbacks.
For right now it is limited to only 500 stores. If your Walmart is one, you will start to see signs at the registers to notify you. Keep your eyes out for the signs at the cash register.
These changes will not effect:
- Walmart.com prices or Walmart.com’s online price match policy
- Savings Catcher
For those of you still shopping at Target they have announced no changes to their price matching policy so feel free to take your ads to Target.
