Arizona Walmart Ad Matching List ~ 10/22/14 – 10/28/14


We’re switching it up a bit with the Walmart list.  We’re going to list it by store.  We’d love your feedback, but realize we can’t please everyone.  :)  But, if an overwhelming number of you hate it, we’ll go back to mixing all the stores together.  My thinking is that you will be able to quickly skip the stores that aren’t in your area and won’t waste your time looking through things you don’t need to.  Again, I’d love your feedback . . . either on Facebook or by commenting below.

Walmart Ad Matching Policy & Tips for Making it Simple

If you live in Arizona, we do an ad matching list each week.  I’ll give you some tips on how to use that, below.  It’s super simple!

They also have a new Savings Catcher program.  Read more about that here.  Right now, it’s had varying results.  I would stick with ad matching at the register and then submit your receipts for things you might have missed.  It can’t hurt!

You can read the full details of their official ad matching policy, but here are what I consider the main points:

Walmart WILL match:

  • Prices that are listed in a local ad (not clearly defined what “local” is)
  • Specific items with a specific prices (brand, size, quantity, “value pack” etc.)
    (Will only do B1G1 or % off if starting price is listed in ad)
  • Store coupons in ads, if price is listed
  • Prices without showing them the ad (I suggest having ads, though)
  • Pound for pound, each to each prices on same package size, type, etc.

They will NOT match:

  • Prices on items that don’t have a specific price listed.  (50% off, B1G1, etc)
  • Price after Register Rewards or Extra Care Bucks (Walgreens & CVS)
  • “Weird” sales (ie:  Buy 2, Get $5 gift card, but most seem to match the Buy 10 sales, if you’re buying 10 & similar sales)
  • Per pound to “each” prices & vice versa ($1.99 pineapple will not be matched if ad is $0.33/lb)
  • Store brands (Some stores will, but their official policy says they won’t.  We put them on the list since so many will.)
  • Double coupon promotions

Helpful Hints:

  • Use the ad matching list on BargainBeliever.com each week.  We have most of the best, though we don’t include “Buy 10″ sales and similar.
  • And/or use the lists on BargainBelieverc.com to make one list, select “all lists” and print (if local to AZ)**
  • Look at your local market-type ads you get for your area & add to list
    Especially if you get IGA ads — We don’t have those prices on the list.
  • Wednesday is often the best day to shop due to one day sales.
  • I place my non ad matching items on conveyor belt first (if any), giving me time to get ready to tell the cashier the prices I need to.
  • Tell the cashier the prices before items are scanned
  • Carry your ads, just in case (policy says not necessary, but nice to have for back up)

Meats:  I have a hard time finding meats that are packaged, branded, or labeled exactly the same as an ad, so I rarely do meats.  Experiment with your list until you find out what your store carries and/or will and will not do.

Produce:  I will readily admit that Walmart’s produce is not always the quality I want to purchase.  Don’t buy that item!  Go in with a flexible plan.  My thinking is that I usually want some great fruits and vegetables for my family, but I don’t necessarily care what they are that week.  I’m fine with getting extra of something that looks good and skipping something else.  On the rare occasion that not much looks good, I get what they have and rely on frozen vegetables and canned fruit for a short time, until I can get to a store that has a good produce sale.

General Foods & Household Items:  I don’t match prices on these items as often since I like the doubling value that most grocery stores give for coupons.  If you don’t use coupons — match away!  Great deals can be found!  If you do use coupons, there are some $1+ coupons that work well there and there are times when I’m not willing to drive to an extra store for the added, double savings.  Be on the lookout for travel size items for higher value coupons that don’t exclude travel sizes.  Of course, sometimes there are some great prices that don’t require a coupon.

**Note:  If an item is not advertised in their ad, they do not have to price match it.  We add many items to the Bargain Believer lists that are not in the ads, especially at Fry’s, Safeway, and Target (others sometimes, too).  Usually, if there is a date after the item “(thru date)” it is not an advertised price.  (Target’s list is difficult to use since many are price cuts and store coupons, so I would stay away from that one.)

I suggest printing their official price matching policy and carrying in with your coupons.  You might want to print their coupon policy, while you’re at it.  :)

Walmart Online Price Matching Policy ~ Select Areas, Including Phoenix!


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

** Online retailers include, but are not limited to Walmart.com, Target.com, Bestbuy.com, Lowes.com, Staples.com, Sears.com, Amazon.com, Kmart.com, Toysrus.com, Officedepot.com, Academy.com, SportsAuthority.com, Basspro.com, Homedepot.com, Cabelas.com, Autozone.com, Petsmart.com, Petco.com, Dickssportinggoods.com, Walgreens.com, Dollargeneral.com, Bedbathandbeyond.com, Babiesrus.com, Jcpenny.com, Kohls.com, Tigerdirect.com, Newegg.com, Familydollar.com, Michaels.com, Oreillyauto.com, Pepboys.com

We do not match:

  • Membership clubs and Auction sites (e.g. eBay)
  • An online price that cannot be determined independent of other items, fees, or charges
  • Percent off or dollar off if the price cannot be determined independent of other items, fees, or charges
  • Bundle offers, Instant Rebates, Mail-in Offers, Offers that include financing
  • Clearance, Close out, Liquidation, Special Hour/Flash/Limited Quantity offers
  • Damaged, Used, or Refurbished items
  • Misprinted or inaccurate prices

Facebook Problems? ~ Get Bargain Believer to Show Up in Your Feed!


I’ve received quite a few emails recently, asking how to get Facebook updates from Bargain Believer to show up in your news feed.

The very best way seems to “like,” comment, and share posts regularly.  The people that do that say they see all the updates.  As a bonus, Facebook shows the posts with the most love, more often.  So, we love all of you that interact with our page!  It helps those who want to get the updates, but choose to remain quiet.

If you are opposed to that, hover over “liked” and make sure “following” is checked.  You have hope, but it doesn’t seem like much.  Most likely, you’ve already done that and nothing has changed.  :(

Lastly, you can check to “get notifications,”  which is an option under the “like” button.  Some love get notifications, some don’t.  Try it for awhile and see what you think.  You can always uncheck it later.

If Facebook won’t show you the love, there are other ways to follow.

Email - One email per day, usually around 3pm — good way to quickly look & see what you missed



You could give one of those a shot or just stalk the website page each day.

Anyone have any other insight about getting your “liked” pages to show up?

My Review of Walmart’s New Savings Catcher Program


We talked to you about Walmart’s new Savings Catcher program here.  I decided to test it out last week.  I went to Walmart on Wednesday and bought something very simple, a box of Ritz crackers.  They can’t mess that up, right?  Here’s my receipt clearly showing the Ritz crackers for $2.50 at the very top.  It even says at the bottom of the receipt to try their new Saving Catcher program.


Notice the date on the receipt is August 6th.  Here’s a copy of the Safeway ad starting August 6th.  Safeway is less than 1/4 mile from Walmart here in Prescott Valley.  It clearly shows on the front page that Ritz are $1.88.

photo_2 (2)

It took 72 hours to get this email.  They didn’t find any differences.  Um, really?  walmart

I issued a complaint where I had to state the lower price and where.  Now, it’s just the point.  I want my 62¢.  If I have to do all the work for them, I’d rather just stick to price matching using our super easy price matching list that we make every week.

So, that’s my experience with this new program.  Do with that info what you wish.  I’m going to price match everything that I’m possibly aware of.  Then, I’ll use this program as a back up.

We’ve heard from several people on Facebook who have said it works and have gotten back $2, $7 and even $11.  So, it CAN work.  A lot of people are loving it.

Update:  I heard from someone who works for Walmart on this program.  He gave me the following information:

For clarification on the comparison - Savings Catcher would match the Safeway club
card price (and the advertised loyalty card prices for other stores, too). 

The competitive set for Savings Catcher is pretty comprehensive. For the specific
store you shopped at, it currently includes: Safeway, CVS, Walgreens, Frys, Kmart,
Albertsons, Target, Family Dollar, Kohls, Petsmart, Dollar Tree, Staples, Best Buy,
Petco, Lowe's, Radio Shack, and Bed Bath & Beyond.

Now, I’m in a small town in Prescott Valley, so I was surprised that it covered so many stores.

They also resolved my issue and I got my money.  :)

Walmart Savings Catcher Program (like price matching without having to)

savings_catcherUpdate:  Here are the results from the first test we did, with some feedback in the comments below that post.

Walmart has a new program called Savings Catcher.  This could be great if it works like they say.  I love that you don’t need to take a photo of your receipt, just enter the number at the bottom.  Easy peasy.  You will need to create a Walmart account.  I already had one.  Other than that, the whole process took me about 30 seconds.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Submit your receipt to Savings Catcher in any one of two ways:
    • Enter the receipt number (the TC number) into Savings Catcher at Walmart.com/savingscatcher. You’ll find this number located near the bottom of your printed Walmart store receipt.
    • Or, scan the code at the bottom of your printed store receipt, using the scanner in the Savings Catcher section of the Walmart app.
  2. Savings Catcher compares the prices of the eligible items you bought at Walmart to the advertised prices found in the print and online versions of the weekly ads of top retailers in your area. The ads must be valid at the time you made your Walmart purchase.
  3. If Savings Catcher finds an advertised price that is lower than what you paid for the same exact item at Walmart, you’ll get back the difference on a Walmart Rewards eGift Card.

You can submit up to 7 receipts a week and it takes 2-3 days to receive your credit.

Here’s info on what they match:

Does Savings Catcher compare all items on my receipt?
Savings Catcher applies to many items sold at Walmart stores. This includes:

  • Most groceries such as cereal, rice and most fruits and vegetables except for: store brand items, deli, bakery and weighed items like meat.
  • Consumable items such as paper towels, bleach and trash bags.
  • Health and beauty items such as shampoo and makeup.
  • Select general merchandise items.

Savings Catcher does not currently apply to:

  • Store brands, deli, bakery and weighed items like meat.
  • General merchandise items, (including, but not limited to, electronics, media and gaming, toys, sporting goods, housewares, small appliances, home décor, bedding, books and magazines, apparel and shoes, jewelry, furniture, office supplies and seasonal products).
  • Non-branded items.
  • Tobacco, firearms, gasoline, tires, prescription drugs, optical and photo products and services, or products that require a service agreement such as wireless, automotive or financial products.

Here’s the list of FAQ.

I went today and bought Ritz crackers as they are $2.50 at Walmart, but on sale at Safeway for $1.88.  I’ll update this in 2-3 days and let you know if I got my credit.

Update:  I heard from someone who works for Walmart on this program.  He gave me the following information:

For clarification on the comparison - Savings Catcher would match the Safeway club
card price (and the advertised loyalty card prices for other stores, too). 

The competitive set for Savings Catcher is pretty comprehensive. For the specific
store you shopped at, it currently includes: Safeway, CVS, Walgreens, Frys, Kmart,
Albertsons, Target, Family Dollar, Kohls, Petsmart, Dollar Tree, Staples, Best Buy,
Petco, Lowe's, Radio Shack, and Bed Bath & Beyond.

Now, I’m in a small town in Prescott Valley, so I was surprised that it covered so many stores. Your area may even include more!

(Thanks, Rosie!)

Make Shopping List from Mobile Device ~ You Can! (Hopefully!)


My husband recently informed me that you can make a personalized shopping list from most mobile devices, using the handy dandy green plus signs on Bargain Believer shopping lists.  (I know that some newer devices don’t have problems.)  I told him, “Nope, tried it.”  I discovered there is a slight glitch on my phone, so that’s why I didn’t know.  (I’ll explain below.)  Did you know this!?!  I’m so excited and can’t believe I didn’t know about it.

First of all, if you don’t use the green plus signs, you’re missing out.  The items are listed by price on the sale lists, but when you click on what you want, it will categorize for you — and a whole lot more than that!  You can watch this video for more details or just click around and figure it all out.

You will need to turn off the mobile view.   The green plus signs will appear and you can click away!  A new window will pop up and you’ll have to go back and forth between them.  For Gina (iphone) and my husband (Android) that’s all they had to do.

For me (iphone), nothing appears on the list after clicking the first green plus sign.  It pulls up an empty list.  I have to click back on the store’s deal list and then back to the shopping list that opened.  It magically appears and kicks it in gear for the future green plus signs I click.

This is still not ideal.  We have bigger and better plans and my husband is working on it, but this is better than nothing.  I will be using my mobile sometimes, but will still prefer using my laptop to make lists.  Using a mobile is a slower process since you have to go back and forth between windows.

All mobiles seem to have their own issues and the plus signs weren’t really designed for mobile devices.  So, this may not work for everyone.  But, give it a shot!

Some of you have probably been doing this “forever.”  But, I’m hoping it will be news for some of you — like it was for me!!  :)
