    WalMart Ad Match Guarantee

    So, allegedly, Wal-Mart does not require you to have the ad in hand in order to guarantee the price. It states that a Store Manager has the right to require the ad. How does this make sense? What Store Manager would NOT require that? How about you, as the company that is being given money, do the work and match the price yourself?

    I believe it says printed ad, meaning you need to bring the ad with you.

    Walmart Ad Match Guarantee Is Not A Scam

    The real pain is waiting in line at customer service, having your feet run over by fat people carts, listening to screaming kids.:chicken:

    They do honor the coupons, and if you are on a budget, I guess it helps.

    I don't think its a scam just a pain in the ass:freak3:

    I have to alert you to the fact that this is not true whatsoever. On two separate occasions I saw someone hand the phone to the cashier to show them an online ad and another argue with management that if they looked outside they would see the Big Lots advertisement in the window of the store. Both customers got their 'ad match guarantee'.

    Re: Wal-Mart Ad Match Guarantee

    Best Buy was good about price matching a phone that I bought once. I got it for 0.99 instead of 199. Wal-Mart can be shitty about it though. Just depends on who you go to.

    You're right. I looked it up.

    We gladly match the price in the following types of ads:*
    Buy one, get one free ads with a specified price
    Example: Buy one for $2.49, get one free (BOGO)
    Competitors' ads that feature a specific item for a specified price
    Preferred shopping card prices for specific items that are in a printed ad
    For fresh produce and meat items when the price is offered in the same unit type (lb. for lb.; each for each)

    *The following are guidelines and limitations:
    We will match any local competitor's advertised price.
    We do not require customers to have the ad with them to honor a competitor's ad.
    Items purchased must be identical to the ad (size, quantity, brand, flavor, color, etc.)
    We do not match the price in the following types of competitor ads:
    Items that require a separate purchase to get the ad price
    example: "Buy [item A] to get [item B] for $C"
    Items with no actual price that require a purchase to get free product
    example: "Buy both [items A & B] to get [item C] for free"
    Items that require a purchase to get a competitors' gift card
    example: "Buy [item A] to get a $B gift card
    Buy one, get one free (BOGO) ads with no actual price given
    Going out of business or closeout prices
    Percentage off
    example: "All mascara, 40% off"
    Competitors' private label price promotions

    We do not honor:
    Ads when the actual price for items cannot be determined
    Internet pricing
    Misprinted ad prices of other retailers
    "Going out of business" sales or "closeout" prices

    Re: Wal-Mart Ad Match Guarantee

    It's a pretty crazy thing to leave up to the discretion of Store Management. On top of the fact that you are going to have unnecessary issues in a check out line you unnecessarily complicate your employees lives. No one wants to fight with you about whether a deal can be redeemed. Seems like they HAVE to fight with you because the store is honouring too many of these 'guarantees'.
