Walmart stores are ad matching online prices now, not just during the holidays! The test markets are: Phoenix, Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Northwest Arkansas. I’m not sure what is defined as “Phoenix.” You’ll need to ask your local Walmart if it’s not in Phoenix, I guess.
The details are here. The list of retailers is pretty impressive! This is great, since you can save shipping and go to the store and get your item right away. I’m going to copy the details below and highlight the ones that I think are the most important.
Our Online Price Match Policy
We’re committed to providing low prices every day. On everything. So if you find a current lower online price on an identical in-stock product, tell us and we’ll match it. Right at the register.
Here are the details:
- The customer must provide the online price and retailer
- The item must be currently in-stock at the online retailer’s website
- We reserve the right to verify the price of the identical, in-stock item at the online retailer’s website (i.e., size, model, quantity, brand, color)
- The Store Manager has the final decision for matching an online price (My note: Hope this doesn’t come into play often!!)
- Where applicable, Walmart reserves the right to limit quantities and to exclude dealers
