Match It! Walmart Updates Its Ad Match Policy

Have you seen the commercial above?  I just did.  Yes, it is true, I do not watch a lot of TV, so I am a bit behind here.  If you have or not watched the commercial above, let me tell you that Walmart recently updated its Ad match policy and they are also making a big deal out of it because they want people to be more aware of it.

This comment left by Jose earlier today sums up some of the reasons I like ad match policies:

I came to the realization yesterday that it would be so much easier and a time saver to do most of my coupon match up shopping at Walmart.  Walgreens, Rite Aid and CVS never order enough of the sale items for their current ads.  I am going to do this as often as I can because it will save me even more money on gas too.

One thing I want to highlight about this new Ad Match Policy is that it states that Walmart now does not require customers to have the ad with them to honor a competitor’s ad.  That’s a pretty huge change from the old policy.  However, I must tell you that I will continue recommending YOU, my readers, to bring the competitor’s ad with.  I think it is a precaution to have just to ensure a smooth transaction.

One thing that I do see the new policy is silent on is on price matching generic products.  I had a reader email me about this last week.  For example, what if you wanted to ad match your grocery store’s private label with Walmart’s Great Value products.  There is nothing about that in there which leads me to believe that it is not allowed.

I have read some of your comments and I know quite a few of you have been lucky taking advantage at your local store. Have you given this new Ad Match Policy a try at Walmart? How did that go? Share with us in the comments.
