Arizona Walmart Ad Matching List ~ 10/19/16 – 10/25/16

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. (Smart & Final ad here.)
  • 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).  Some 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 ad matching policy 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.
  • Stores in Arizona are continuing to ad match, despite many national locations stopping in June of 2016

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.)

Thanks for Printing Coupons w/ Our Link ~ Please Bookmark This Page

Printing from here (or many links we provide) is a huge help.
If you would bookmark it, we’d be very grateful!
(There’s also a link on the top menu bar of the website.)

I want to thank everyone who uses our links to print your coupons.  Even printing just one coupon every couple days helps keep the revenue coming in, so I can continue to pay people to help me.  Without their help, I definitely would have quit by now.  It’s just too much work for me to do alone.

 For those who don’t print from our links, please consider it, instead of just going directly to Coupons.com.  If everyone who used this site printed just one or two coupons a week … well, we’d be rich and we wouldn’t want to go anywhere, ever!  :)  We earn a small amount, but it sure adds up with all of you doing it!
If you have a spot to bookmark the link below and use it for coupon prints (that we don’t give you a link for), or when you want to browse.  It would really help!
Thank you!

Walmart Ending Ad Matching in AZ??


Here we go again …

There are many reports that Walmart will be ending ad matching on August 1.  We’ll continue to provide the ad-matching list until we verify that the majority of Arizona stores have stopped.

If you have been told or have seen a sign saying ad matching is ending, please leave a comment below, telling us where your location is.  That will help others determine if their store will be included.

Keep in mind … we heard the same thing recently and it only affected one store in AZ.  And, since that time, we’ve heard that they started ad matching again.  So . . . fingers crossed it will only affect a few AZ stores.  I save so much time and money by getting almost all my produce there, along with a few other items from time to time.   I sure hope it continues, but I know it probably won’t last forever.  :(

Daily Emails (Click on Verification Link!!) & Follow on Facebook!


So many of you have signed up for daily emails from Bargain Believer.  Unfortunately, many of you are not getting them.  If you don’t click on the verification link they send you, you won’t get them.  Check your spam!

Here’s the link if you want to sign up or need the verification link sent again.

You’ll get an automated email every day around 1pm with links to all the posts we did in the previous 24 hours.  It’s a great way to make sure you haven’t missed anything good!


For those not following on Facebook, that’s where we’re most active, so make sure you head over there and “like” our page.  If you want to see the updates in your feed, make sure you also hover over the “liked” on top of the page and check “See First.”  If you don’t, you won’t see most of our posts.

Walmart Ending Ad Matching??


Update:  I haven’t received any official reports of any store that is ending ad-matching in Ariziona, except the location I listed below.  Maybe we’re escaping the change … at least, for now!

I really hoped Arizona would escape, but … we’re not 100% lucky.  Some Walmarts nation-wide are ending ad-matching at the register, beginning on Thursday, June 9th.  Some Arizona stores are affected.

They’re spinning it as a great thing since they’ll be lowering prices on a bunch of items and we can use Savings Catcher.  Yes, that’s nice, but probably won’t lure me in.  I’ll just go where the true rock bottom ad prices are.  The biggest problem with Savings Catcher is that it doesn’t “catch” produce.  That’s what I save BIG on at Walmart.  (It also doesn’t “catch” most meat, bakery items or drugstore prices — just so you’re aware.)

But, I knew ad-matching was too good to last forever.  Unfortunately, many people lie and take advantage of a generous policy.  They are a business and have to make business decisions.  I get that, though I’m very sad.  Thankfully, I have (at least!) one store near me that will continue to do it.  I’ll definitely shop at that location and hope it will continue forever … or, at least a long time!  :)

**** Since not all locations are stopping, I need your help, to help everyone. ****

Can you comment, either over on Facebook here or below this post, and let us know if your Arizona store is still ad matching?

  • Leave a comment if you go Thursday or later and find out they are or aren’t ad matching at the register — or, if you’ve already seen signs or verified it in some way.
  • Go here and find the address of your location and leave us that and the cross streets.

These specifics will make it helpful for others who want to know if their Arizona location is affected.  If I get enough responses, I’ll compile a list and have it available on the website and keep it up to date, as more information comes in or as things change.

So, here’s my first “comments” for you . . .

Baseline & Stapley/Cooper
1955 S Stapley Dr, Mesa, AZ 85204
Not ad matching, has signs and I talked to cashier & customer service.

Baseline & Country Club
240 W Baseline Rd, Mesa, AZ 85210
Verified that they’re still ad matching, will double check this week.

Any others you know about?

Arizona’s Walmart Ad Matching Experience ~ Please Comment!


We’re attempting to make the AZ Walmart ad-matching lists as simple and helpful as possible.  Will you please comment below or over on Facebook, so we can gauge what’s happening around Arizona, not just at the stores we shop at?  Thanks!

Here are your questions . . .

  1.  Does your Arizona Walmart match “per pound” prices on produce, when they sell it individually?  Most common are watermelon, pineapple, and oranges.  All the Walmart’s I’ve been to sell them “each” but some stores advertise prices per pound.  Should we leave those prices off the list?

  2.   Will your Arizona Walmart match store brand items like eggs, canned beans, or juice?

I go to several different Walmart locations and they won’t do either of the above.

It’s always been against their policy, but most stores used to do both.  If there are only a couple stores out there (or none!) that do it, I want to leave those deals off the list.  Weeding through those deals is a hassle, if they aren’t benefiting anyone.

Please comment below or below on the Facebook post here and let us know what your experience is.  Thanks!

Frozen Fruit & Veggie Recall ~ Safeway, Albertsons & Walmart Brands on List


Check your freezers for frozen fruit & veggies that may have been recalled for the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.  Full details here.

They’ve been on our lists recently, so we wanted you to be aware of it.  There’s a huge list of brand & types, but the ones I see most affecting Arizona are . . . .

Fry’s Update:  Some Kroger brands have also been recalled.  You will probably get a message on the bottom of your Fry’s receipt, if you’ve purchased them recently, but I’m not 100% sure everyone will get it.  (Thanks, Mary Ann!)

Safeway & Albertsons brands:
Signature Kitchens
O Organics

Walmart Brands:
Price First
Great Value

There are many more brands, so make sure you check out the full list here.

All affected products have the best by dates or sell by dates between April 26, 2016 and April 26, 2018.  See above link for specific types and what codes to look for.

♥ ♥ Hearts on Lists! ♥ ♥ (Find Best Deals More Easily)

♥ ♥ = We love this deal!  We doubt it will go much lower than this.  Stock up!
♥  = This is a great deal.  If you use this product, get it!

This is pretty self-explanatory, but for those who haven’t noticed yet … we just started adding hearts to the coupon match ups.

As you can imagine, we don’t use every product we have on the lists.  We aren’t 100% sure what a good deal is on everything.  This is just a guideline to get you focused in on some of the best deals.  If you use a lot of something or specifically need a product, it doesn’t mean nothing else on the list is a good deal.  Don’t be afraid of the other deals.  :)

If you ever see something that’s an amazing deal, to you, and we missed marking it … let us know!  We’d love to make sure we highlight it for others, so they don’t miss out.

Hope this makes your life a little easier and helps you save even more!

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


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!

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
