New Changes to Walmart Price Match Policy

Walmart updated the Price Match Policy on 11/10/2015.  The changes look to be in favor of the Price Matchers.  We print out the most current policy in case we run into questions from a cashier when checking out.  Here are a couple of changes that we noticed in the new policy

  • It is the store's responsibility to obtain the local competitor ads
  • The Store manager has the final decision on any Price Match

We hope these changes will help all of you have a better price matching experience.  Happy Savings!
