Notes : (Keep in mind that your store many vary from another store & you can’t count on getting everything on this list.)

  • Your store may no longer match the Hispanic market prices, including Food City.  (It doesn’t seem to be very widespread, at this point.)
  • Your store may only match store locations that they consider close to them.
  • Sometimes, there are price variations from store to store, especially Smart & Final.  See your local ad for exact price.
  • Policy says they will not match store brand prices, but the majority report their store will.
  • Walmart sells some produce individually, not by the pound.  Their policy says they won’t match those items, unless the ad shows the same (lb to lb, or each to each).  Many stores will do it.
  •  Meats are hard to match.  Most stores are strict about same size packaging, cuts, brands, etc.  We include more than you’ll probably be able to find at your store since selection may vary.
  • Milk can vary from store to store.  Most seem to carry Price First brand for $1.99.  If not, that seems to be the brand most stores want you to get when matching.

Some items below need coupons, many don’t.  Click the green plus signs to make your own personalized shopping list!  (When you do, it will be categorized for easier shopping.)

Walmart Ad Matching List AZ ~ HELP US WITH YOUR COMMENTS!

walmart_logo

We want the Walmart ad matching list to be as relevant and concise as possible, but it’s hard since all locations don’t follow their written policy.  I’d love to leave items off, if they’re just cluttering the list and you’re not able to match.

Questions for you:  (Please let us know in the comments.  If you have store specific info, including cross streets would be great, for others who don’t know what their closest store does.)

1)  Does your Walmart match store brands?  Ex.  Will they match eggs, store brand apple juice, etc?
2)  Does your store match pound for “each” on produce?  Ex:  If watermelon is $0.10/lb and Walmart sells them for $3.99, will they match it?
3)  How does meat matching go for you?  Does it need to be branded, like Foster Farms?  Will they match “boneless skinless chicken breasts $1.89/lb?”  Will they match if it the ad says “bulk ” or “family pack” if your store only carries a reg. size package?
4)  Anything else you want us to know about your matching experience, that might help us?

Sadly, I know that with Walmart, it can vary.  I also know it can vary witin the same store, depending on cashier.  Sheesh … I’ve even had it vary with the same cashier!  But … I’m trying to find an overall “norm” that’s out there.  I shop at two (sometimes three) different Walmarts and still have luck with store brands, but I don’t even ask for lbs/each and I rarely do meats.  Recently, at one store, I was told they don’t do store brand anymore, but then … well, all cashiers have done it and that cashier even did it “this once.”

Please comment below, giving specifics so it’s helpful for us and others.  Thanks!

Note from Juli . . .

bargain_believer_logo

Please tell everyone in AZ you know (or even strangers!) to check us out.  If they don’t already love you, they may start!  :)  Most of you know this, but just in case you don’t … I pay people to help me since I just don’t have time to spend on what is needed  to keep this site going.  I use affiliate links and advertising, to generate an income.  We get to continue because of those who use our links and help us grow by telling others about Bargain Believer​.

I want to be honest/clear … our #1 priority is to save you money, not make money.  But, for one to happen, the other needs to happen or we can’t continue.  I still refuse to post things that I hope a few of you might jump on, just to make a buck .. at the expense of wasting everyone else’s time & diluting the things I find valuable.  We really pick and choose what we feel is the best, especially for AZ residents, without becoming a site that just lists Amazon & other affiliate deals all the time.  That means the majority of our posts make us a whopping $0.   I get as excited to post those as I do the money making ones, if I know you will benefit.

With that said, sometimes I feel guilty for posting the things I make money on.  In some ways, it would be easier if I didn’t make/need money.  My guilt would be less.

Later this afternoon, I will put up a post about Pogo Pass.  I’m sorry for those of you who are sick of seeing it.  However, please realize that it’s extremely popular and I get thanked for sharing it all the time.  It’s an amazing value and I completely believe in it.  Also, keep in mind that we have new people come to the site each day and most people don’t see every post we do (shocking to a few of you loyal followers, I know)  :)  Honestly … we probably couldn’t afford to keep doing what we’re doing without Pogo’s generous commission.  I’d love for you to share or tag people on that post (or any!) if you think anyone would benefit.  Side note:  Pogo can also be used for fundraisers.  If you know a school or non-profit that needs to make some money, please send me an email (juli@bargainbeliever.com).  Or, it can even be a business that wants to put flyers on their counter.  They are a super company to work with.

Okay, this didn’t start out so long in my mind, but I’m a world-class rambler.  I’m glad you’re here and really don’t know how to fully express that to you, but just believe me … I love sharing deals and it’s much easier to share them, than keep them to myself.  Well … in some ways.  :)  THANK YOU!  ~ Juli

They didn’t have everything on my list and/or some things just didn’t look good enough to buy.  I skipped those or got something else.   Often, I hear that people don’t like to ad match at Walmart because their produce isn’t good.   I won’t defend all their produce all the time, but I will say I get some great produce there.  If you absolutely need a cucumber, it may not be the place to go.  If you can live without cucumbers if they don’t look good, you’ll save a bunch!  I’m pretty flexible (almost always) on what produce I want/need.  It usually doesn’t bother me if I end up with more carrots instead of broccoli for one week.  If I really need it and it doesn’t look good, I just have to get it somewhere else.  I prefer to huge savings, to the occasional “need” that doesn’t get met.

Below is my list looked like.  (Use our current AZ Walmarat list and click the green plus signs in front of the items you want on your list.)

  • Old El Paso Refried Beans, Enchilada Sauce or Taco Shells (10-16 oz or 12-12 ct )   99¢  (Safeway)

Get Facebook Page Updates to Show Up in Feed (New Way!)

bargain_believer_logo

I just found a new (at least to me!) setting for pages you follow on Facebook.  One of the most common questions we get is how to see all Bargain Believer posts in your Facebook feed.  It’s frustrating when you want to see something and Facebook just doesn’t show it to you.

We know that commenting, sharing, and “liking” posts helps.  But, it looks like we may have a new option.  Hope this really works!!

Some deals go quickly, so it’s a great way to follow us, if you’re on Facebook a lot.  Plus, we post some added information or have a Facebook-only giveaway from time to time.

Assuming you want to see everything we post  . . .

Supposedly, Bargain Believer posts will show up at the top of your feed.  Give it a try and let us know what happens.

Is Couponing Worth It?

coupons_&_scissors

I was asked (after hearing Safeway will probably be accepting coupons at face value in AZ soon, more here) …

Is couponing worth it?

If you want the short answer … yes, for me.

If you want the long answer, grab your coffee (maybe it’s a smoothie this time of year?) and snuggle up to your computer or mobile, as I share my thoughts.

When, I say “couponing,” I mean using paper coupons (printable, from Sunday paper, & misc. coupons that may show up) or digital coupons you can load directly to your shopping cards.

I only use coupons for products I will use or have a specific purpose for (donating, giving to friends, etc).  I’m not a true “extreme couponer.”  I’ve only seen a couple of the TLC shows, but I’m nothing like what I’ve seen.  I like to call myself an “intentional couponer.”  I use them wisely and save a bunch of money!  I don’t need a trailer to get my groceries home and one bottle of mustard will usually last us until it expires, around my house.

For me, couponing will still be worth it, even if coupons are taken at face value.  (Keep in mind that most of the country can only redeem coupons at face value and many do it.)  There is still money to be saved.

I’m a firm believer that pennies add up to quarters, add up to dollars, add up to $20, etc.  I’ll even still bend down to pick up a penny.  The bonus is a little bit of exercise, if nothing else.  :)

On the other hand, I also value my time.  If I’m finding that saving $3 is taking me an hour, I won’t do it.  My time is worth more than $3/hour.  On the other hand, if it takes me an hour to get ready to go to the grocery store (or an extra hour to run somewhere else & look at ads, etc.) and I end up saving $30 (random number for example) … totally worth my time.  I should say … usually!  There are weeks when I don’t have an hour to spare to save $30, as much as I want to.  I value my sanity more than thirty bucks.

As much as I love the savings and the financial freedom it helps bring to my family, it’s not for everyone.  I have different time, priorities, and needs than you do.  Don’t blindly use coupons, without counting the cost.  There are costs.  I would never deny that!

  • Time — What “wages” are acceptable to you?  Remember, it’s tax-free “income.”
  • Space — How will you store surplus?  Do you have room or need to stick with basics?
  • Sanity — Does the extra clutter (coupons or treasures you get) drive you nuts?
  • Need — Do you need to do it to make ends meet?
  • Want — Do you enjoy using the savings for something else that makes the effort worthwhile?
  • Respect — Does your spouse value the fact that you do it or does it drive him/her nuts?
  • Cost — How much are you spending on newspapers, ink, paper, buying coupons, gas, whatever?

Take a serious inventory of the above list.  Ponder it and calculate it.  If you feel it’s more of a burden, stop — unless you feel it’s a necessity!  (Well, I don’t see how you can resist clicking and loading a few digital coupons.)  :)  Yes, I know I run a coupon website.  Well, I don’t fully see it that way.  I run a money saving website, that often involves coupons, but there’s much more!

Whatever you end up doing with your coupon usage, I hope you stick around Bargain Believer.  We’ll always share deals that have coupons, but we go beyond that.  We want you to have fun with your family, without spending a bunch.  We’ll point you to those deals and other bargains we just can’t seem to keep to ourselves.  As long as there are businesses competing, there will always be bargains out there and we’ll help you find them!  We may even tempt the non-coupon users out there to click and load a digital coupon or even print a coupon every once in awhile.  The coupon/non-coupon line can be crossed at any time.  :)

I was going to share some other ways to save, but I’m afraid you’re falling asleep now.  And, I’m out of time.  Stay tuned … more on saving (beyond coupons) soon!

What do you think?

Verify Email Subscriptions! ~ Great Way to Follow (Also Facebook, Twitter, or RSS Feed)

email_updates2

If you don’t get the Bargain Believer emails, you may want them.  You will receive one email between 3pm & 5pm, usually around 3pm.  (No, I’m not sitting at my computer at that exact time every single day.  They’re automatic and I never know the precise time they’ll go out.) :)

They will show you everything that was listed since the previous email went out.  It’s an easy way to glance over what was posted that day and make sure you didn’t miss anything.   Fair warning:  You’ll be bugged everyday around 3pm, but you can unsubscribe at anytime.   :)

If you’ve ever signed up to get the daily emails and you’re not getting them, you probably didn’t verify your email.  There is a significant number of people on the email list that haven’t.  Sign up again at this link and make sure to go to your email and click on the link.  It should come right away.

Of course, you can also follow other ways . . . Facebook gets a little extra love sometimes, with quickly disappearing deals, reminders, and just more interaction.  If you use Facebook, it’s another great way to follow.

Make sure “follow” is checked after you have “liked” Bargain Believer (beside the “liked” button).  Even better, hover over the “liked” button and check “get notifications.”  When you’re on Facebook, a little box will pop up when we post something and it will also be listed under your “notifications” tab on top.  As always, the best way to not miss anything is to comment or “like” posts on the Bargain Believer Facebook page …. often!

Stay Active on Facebook or You’re Missing Out!

facebook_icons

Are a Facebook user, who likes to see all the updates from pages you have “liked,” like the Bargain Believer page?  (I think that sentence had too may “likes” in it!)

Ughhh . . . it’s so frustrating when I don’t see things I want to.  I feel like when I “like” a page, I’m telling Facebook I want to see their updates.  If I don’t want to see them, I’ll “unlike” them.  Facebook sees it differently.  :(

You need to get/stay active to see what you want on the Bargain Believer Facebook page!  We posts extra deals on Facebook from time to time.  You’ll want to see them, even if you get the email or stalk the website.

When you “like,” share, or comment … you are telling Facebook that you value the page and want to see posts.  You are also making it a more popular post, which will increase the likelihood that those who aren’t as active, will see the post.  Pretty please … like or comment on posts when you think they’re beneficial!

If you are active for awhile and you’re still not seeing everything, don’t forget … you can get daily emails.  Note:  You will not get them until you click on the confirmation email that you receive.  You will get an email almost every single day.  I realize that’s not for everyone.  If it annoys you enough, you can unsubscribe at any time.  We promise not to spam you, once you unsubscribe.  Well, we’ll never “spam” you, but you’ll get that one email each day.  :)

If all else fails … we have a website!  Check it often.  :)

Thanks for being here and giving us an outlet to share the deals we find.  We like finding bargains and it’s much more fun to share them!

Get a Free AMEX at Walmart to Double Savings Catcher Savings!

savings_catcher

Below is a tip on how to maximize your savings with Walmart’s Savings Catcher program.

We’re hearing rumors that they will be stopping their ad matching program (possibly at the end of this year??).  I hope it’s not true, but I believe it’s coming.  :(   If you haven’t tried this program or know about it, it’s worth reading up on.  You can read the details here.

Reader, Karen, sent this to me . . .  (Thanks, Karen!)

“I was in Walmart on Tuesday, November 11th and they had the
American Express Bluebird Card for free, for a limited time (normally $5.00).
So, I put the min. amount on the card ($1.00).  I will be using it to put my
Savings Catcher amounts on it, which I will get double the cash back.”

Here’s a link with more information.  (Thanks, Kathleen & CindyLou!)

Great tip!  I haven’t verified that all stores carry this, but be on the lookout.

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.  :)
