I am so stinkin' excited because I tried out price matching at the new Walmart in our area this morning and it actually worked! Last week, PPP reader Ada asked why I didn't price match Aldi's great produce prices at Walmart
more often (ummm ~ ever), and to be honest, I've just never taken the time to try it out. We also haven't had a Walmart near our home until recently, so making an extra trip with our crazy schedule just wasn't going to happen!
Today though, I decided to see if it worked and I'm soooo excited to let you know it did. Aldi's had bananas in their ad for $.44/lb. and a 3 lb. bag of apples for just $1.99, so I paid $2.93 plus tax for what would have normally cost $5.08 at Walmart. While I know that isn't a huge savings, it did help squeeze a few more dollars out of our grocery budget, and I'll definitely be purchasing more in the future. (I wanted to make sure it worked first!) I didn't have an Aldi's ad, so I pulled up the prices on my phone which was all the cashier needed. Success!
(Note ~ if possible I think it is best to have the ad of the store you're price matching at in hand . . . they may accept it from your phone but the real ad is always best!)
Don't forget you can also take advantage of Walmart's Savings Catcher program while you're at it.
