This last Saturday, I decided to give their Ad-Matching campaign a try. I am not as good at couponing as I would like, so I thought maybe by Ad-Matching I could still save some money.
I found a UT site called Lots to Save which helped me tremendously.
Using the Walmart Price Match List on the site and the links to the individual store-ads, I started my work.
I created a shopping list out of items needed that were listed on this week's WalMart Price Match List.
I then included the sale price and listed the name of the store where it is on sale that week. For instance:
Avocados: 25 cents each - Rancho Market
Cantaloupe: 88 cents each - Sunflower Market
Red Bell Peppers: 3 for $1 - Sunflower Market
|Here is part of this week's circular for Sunflower Market (thru 8.8.12)|
As much as I love this store, I didn't have to drive all the way to Orem for these deals.
Walmart also has some guidelines on what they will price match.
I would suggest reviewing the guidelines prior to going to the market. I think it's a great deal for saving money on fresh produce and meats.
Even though it is not required to have the actual ads with you, I had them accessible on my tablet just in case and for my own peace of mind since it was my first time. :)
When it was time to check out, I had my non-price matching items go through first and told the cashier I would be price matching the second portion. I used the list I created to help the cashier override the cost of their prices with my sale prices.
When it was all said and done, I left the store with a savings of $21.70 which is a huge step for me. It also only took me about an hour to make my shopping list and compare prices, etc. Spending one hour a week to save $20+ a week is worth it! I can't wait until the end of this week to go shopping again!
