Wal-Mart Informative - Price Matching How To
I know money isn't going as far as it use to and a way to save is by using stores Price Match policy. With that being said NOT EVERYTHING can be price matched and there are some exceptions.
1. The competitors Ad is REQUIRED to price match. We the cashiers have to see and be be able to look at the other stores item plus our own to determine if it is the exact same item brand for brand, size for size, so that if any higher up tries to question why we overrode an item we can tell them what store, what item, and what page it was on.
2.Alcohol and Tobacco products CANNNOT be price matched under any circumstance. It a law and not just a Walmart thing, and throwing a hissy fit and asking for a manager is not gonna do anything.
3.Stores that have plus cards or what ever they are called we DO NOT match those prices. If another store's ad has $.88 WITH CARD and $1.00 WITHOUT, but ours is regular priced at $1.50. We will not match the $.88 price only because Walmart does not have plus cards therefore we will not honor them. Now I know some stores or maybe some cashiers will but it is a Walmart policy. So if one cashier does it at one store but then you go to another store and they won't do it, getting mean trying to intimidate the cashier by asking for a manager is only holding up the line. Either don't buy the product at that store or get it at the WITHOUT CARD.
4. Yes we do match some fruit and vegatable prices, also meats. Also don't bring a ad for some cheap no brand meat and try and get Perdue or Organic meats with it.
5.DON'T try and price match at Self-Check Outs it annoys the cashier and is a hassle and it holds up the lines as is knowing your going to pay by check yet you choose to use a Self Check Out.
