“Want to save more money at Walmart?”
Basic Walmart shopping tips can really go a long way on your next outing to the most shopped-at store in America.
Shopping at Walmart already is likely saving you a bundle as it is. Mostly due to Walmart keeping their prices low and stocking their shelves well. Of-course, their prices can vary state-to-state and even store-to-store but most are tend to be close in price and are reasonable.
Walmart also offers some of the best ‘Black Friday’ deals, we put together a great guide for that as well.
Coupon Price Matching
When you do your Walmart shopping one of the best ways to save money is to price match. Walmart will price match local store competitors ads. You can check here for Walmart’s price check policy. You wont need to drive around to other stores to find the best deals, so this in turn can save gas money.
All you need to do is bring in the competitors store flyer and show this to the cashier. Make sure the date on the flyer is that weeks current date. It must be a current ad and you can also match the Preferred Shopping Card prices that are in the ad.
Group those items together and a have sales ad ready. I sit my ad next to my grouped items to keep them in order. Some shoppers like to put sticky tabs on those items to help.
Do you ever wish there were more coupons for meat and vegetables? I get asked all the time, how do you save on them? Well one way is through coupon overage.
This is when you purchase a product and use a coupon for it that is more than the products price. So that makes the product free and the extra cash rolls onto the rest of the items in your order such as meat or fruit.
Check out the Walmart coupon overage policy. You should make a copy and keep it with you, because unfortunately many cashiers are not up-to-date on their store policies.

If you like to shop online be sure to use Walmart’s “Site to Store” for free shipping, by using this Walmart will ship your purchases to the nearest store in your area free of charge.
