Well the day we all knew was coming happened! Oct 16th Walmart stopped price matching their competition. We at Pricematcherz thought this was the end of our usefulness as a website. But man were we wrong! We have received hundreds of emails, Facebook messages and texts encouraging us to continue sharing our free grocery lists. Turns our many people use our lists to see at a glance what the best deals are in their town. So we have decided to make this our new focus for our website.
What does that look like going forward? The list will look a little bit different. We will include all great grocery sales not just items that can be price matched. So for many of you the lists will actually be better. We can now include store brand items and in-store only specials. We will still indicate when an item has a coupon match up. We will still make a note of STOCK UP prices so you know rock bottom deals. We will only list the items that are well below the current Walmart price so every item on the fliers will not be listed, just the great deals. We do this so the lists are not extremely long and time consuming to look at but that you can see quickly which store has the best deals for you. Being an informed shopper is key to cutting that grocery budget. Remember when grocery stores compete informed shoppers win!
What to do if your city is no long listed? Some of the cities that we had listed relied on larger cities close by for the majority of their list. So we decided that a city had to have 3 or more major grocery stores for their city list to continue. Check out the list of the larger city close by and see if it is worth it to make a shopping trip.
We are thankful for all of your support over the last six years and look forward to this new journey together. If you would love to help us out please share our website with your friends and family. We also love it when people give us a show out on Facebook to let others know how much Pricematcherz can help your family save on that grocery budget.
