Shopping Smart at Walmart

Due to the recession, Walmart increased in sales and clientele. If you are among the Walmart shoppers, there are certain things you need to know to save money.
  1. Usually buying bigger or more lowers the price of a product. However, Walmart takes advantage of this fact to trick shoppers, sometimes increasing the price of a product as it gets bigger. Check the unit price to see if buying two smaller packages would save you money.
  2. The Walmart brand is not always the cheapest brand, although store brands are usually cheaper than name brands. Look at the other brands to see if you can find the product at a cheaper price.
  3. Walmart price matches, meaning that if you find a product they sell being sold cheaper at another store, they will sell it to you at the other store’s price. Browse the flyers you get in the mail to check competitor prices. You don't even need to bring in the ad; just tell them the price (be honest!). This is especially great if Walmart is closer to you than other stores, because you also save on gas.
  4. Use coupons. Print out manufacturer coupons from online (including or cut them out of flyers. Go here to read Walmart's coupon policy.
