Wal-Mart Compliment - Wal Mart will match competitors advertised price
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- I am so happy that Wal Mart has a policy that if any competitor sells an identical item at a lower price, Wal Mart will honor the competitors price and sell it to the customer at that price. Price matching is the coolest thing to ever enter your store. It's so out of this world unreal. To this very day I can't believe it. It's too good to be ture. That's right, instead of having to go to every store in town just to get the lowest price all you have to do is bring the competitors ad to Wal Mart and they will gladly and cheerfully match the competitors price and best of all, it can be any competitor even Walgreens, Publix, Target, Eckerd,etc... However, they do not honor buy 1 get 1 free specials, % off specials or Mvp/ Vic/Customer Reward specials. You know like any sale that requires you to have a special "card" to get the discount. Other than that, Wal Mart is pretty cool and reasonable. Target and K Mart use to price match competitors prices but they ended the program. So that's why I shop at Wal Mart. If Target and K mart don't want to honor their competitors prices then I won't shop there. It's very simple, if you see an item that you happen to need or want and Wal Mart's price is a lot higher than another store, all you have to do is bring their weekly sales ad to the Wal Mart cashier and they will sell the item to you at the competitors price. no hassles, no hard time, just a discounted price. In addition to that, you may also use coupons. I first found out about this policy when K Mart was doing it and just recently K Mart decided to put the program to an end and then Target decided to put this program to an end in which I think they made a big mistake since it is costing them to have less customers. When I first found out about price matching back in 1999, I said to myself "this is too good to be true" "this can't be true" "it can't be this easy" but beleive it or not it is true and it is easy. Best of all, Wal Mart even supports price matching. They encourage to bring in competitor ads so they can not only beat their competitor but they can show everyone that the have the lowest price in town and thats more and more customers for Wal Mart and less customers for their competitors. Ocassionally, They can be a little too strict on the policy. I had called Wal Mart on the phone asking them if they would match Winn Dixie's coca cola 12 pack price which was $2.50 with customer reward card only and Wal Mart said that they would match the price as long as I brought the ad in with me so I told them that I would bring the ad in and I did so when I got to the checkout counter in the garden shop. I showed the cashier Winn Dixie's ad showing their coca cola 12 pack price which was $2.50. She called her supervisor and she said that they would not match Winn Dixie's price because it was for Winn Dixie card holders only so I ended up paying $3.38 for a 12 pack coca cola which was disappointing considering that I specifically called Wal Mart just to make sure they would honor Winn Dixie's sale price but when I got to the checkout counter she told me "no". So Wal Mart needs to make up their mind about what they will price match and what they won't price match.Even though Target and K mart no longer price match competitors, I hope that Wal Mart will continue to price match.
