Understanding Walmart's Price Match Policy: What It Covers and What It Doesn't

Understanding Walmart's Price Match Policy: What It Covers and What It Doesn't

I recently switched between three shopping sites, trying to find the best deal for an electric blender. Why am I talking about it? Because I know, I am not alone; you do it too. Many shoppers are always on the hunt for a good bargain, and when they finally get one (like I did), it feels like Simba defeating Mufasa.

While searching for bargains, the allure of price matching cannot be denied, as it makes the process easier. And as one of the world's largest retailers, Walmart is a go-to destination for many. But does this retail giant offer a price match policy to help you save?

The short answer is yes, but with a catch. Walmart’s price match policy is not as extensive as that of other retailers, and it comes with conditions and restrictions that can make it feel like an unworthy adventure, which is not the case. This article will go into the details of Walmart's price match policy, shedding light on what it covers and does not so you can make informed decisions.

What Walmart Will Price Match

Online-Only Price Matching:

Walmart's price match policy applies only to items found on This means you cannot request a price match for items found on another retailer’s website or in another Walmart store, even if they offer the same product at a lower price.

Identical Products:

To qualify for a price match, the item you're purchasing in-store must be identical to the one on This includes the same brand, size, colour, model, quantity, and relevant specifications. Any slight variations can disqualify an item from being price matched.

In-Stock Requirement:

The lower price you're requesting a match for must be in stock on at the time of your in-store purchase. You won't be eligible for the price match if the item is out of stock online or the price has changed.

Price Match Request at Time of Purchase:

You must request the price match at the time of purchase while you're still at the register. This means you cannot return later and ask for a price adjustment if you find a lower price online after your purchase.

Manager Approval:

Price matches at Walmart are subject to manager approval. While most price matches are straightforward, some situations might require additional verification or clarification from a manager.

What Walmart Won’t Price Match

Competitor Prices: 

One limitation of Walmart's price-matching policy is that it does not match prices found at other retailers. This means that if you find an identical item at a lower price at Target, Amazon, or any other store, Walmart will not adjust its price to match it. 

Third-Party Sellers: 

Even on, the price match policy does not extend to items sold by third-party sellers through the Walmart Marketplace. So, while you may find the same item on at a lower price, they only consider prices for items sold and shipped by Walmart itself.

Post-Purchase Adjustments: 

Walmart's price match policy is strictly limited to the time of purchase. You will not get a price adjustment if you buy an item and later find it at a lower price (even on 

Bundles, Discounts, and Special Offers: 

Walmart's price match policy applies only to the regular price of individual items. It does not cover items that are part of a bundle, promotional offers, or discounts. For example, if there is a "buy one, get one free" deal or a special discount on a bundled product, Walmart will not match that price.

Tips for Maximizing Walmart's Price Match Policy

Check Before Buying In-Store: 

Before you go on to a Walmart store, take a moment to check the prices on and compare prices. If you find the same item listed for less on the website, you may be able to get a price match in-store. 

Be Prepared with Proof: 

See it that you are a lawyer preparing to defend her client (your right to a price match), so you have to come with proof.  Be prepared to show the Walmart associate the webpage or product listing that displays the lower price. You can do this by printing out the page or showing it on your phone.

Ask for a Manager If Needed: 

If you encounter any issues with the price match, you can ask for a manager's assistance. A manager can help resolve any confusion and ensure you get the price match you’re eligible for.

Explore Other Savings Options: 

I know you are already fed up with all of the conditions. However, Walmart has other options that can save you money besides price matching.

The Walmart rollback deals and clearance items are heavily discounted so that you can enjoy quality items at low prices. You can also use the Walmart app to check for discounts and coupons. And if that is not enough, some sites offer coupon codes and cashback so you can shop at some of your favourite stores (Walmart included) without worrying about the price.
