Is Walmart price-matching ending?? The FULL SCOOP!

The scoop on the Walmart price-matching policy and whether it's ending or not! from

FREEBS! Put down the paper bags you're breathing into and listen up! I know rumors are FLYING about the Walmart price-matching policy and whether it's ending or not. Have no fear, Freebs, Mama J did a video answering all your questions and giving you the full scoop!

No clue what price-matching is? Let me enlighten you, grasshopper.

Price-matching is when a store will honor a competitor's price on an identical item, if that price is cheaper than theirs. Walmart has been doing this for years (as explained in all these posts). If a store within 30 miles of Walmart has a better price on an identical product, they will match the lower price, saving you TONS.

If you've been following me for 2 seconds or longer you might have noticed that I love price-matching and it has saved thousands over the years as a result.

So…is price-matching ending??

Watch the video online or watch here to find out! And no, this video isn't sponsored in any way.

So there you go!

In short…

Yes, price-matching is ending…but not everywhere (yet). Yes, it will probably end forever at some point. But for now, they are ending it area by area, so you can still take advantage of it in many places! In my area (Utah and the surrounding states) it has ended, but it's still going strong in some areas. (Reminder – see full details for how I price-match HERE.)

Alisha (a member of the FCF team) worked at Walmart for over a decade. She got in touch with her Walmart manager friends and the official statement…is that there is no official statement. Wah waaaaaahp. There is no overall list of what stores will be stopping or not, so unfortunately, you will just need to call your store and ask if/when price-matching ends for that store.

Have no fear though! There if price-matching is dead in your area, there are so many ways to still save half on your grocery bill WITHOUT coupons.

Meal plan! Here are some tips of mine:

Additional savings tips…

  • Shop and cook around what's on sale
  • Don't waste ANYTHING – use every drop of what you have!
  • Consider a meal swap with friends! You cook dinner for however many families are in your swap, 1 night per week, and the other nights of the week a hot meal is delivered to your door. You only cook ONE TIME PER WEEK and get a homemade meal every night! It's genius! You can set rules like no MSG, must come with 2 sides, etc.
  • Double and freeze! We all know I looooooooove my freezer meals.
  • Use Deals to Meals to see what's on sale at the stores near you, and take advantage of their meal plans to use what you buy that week. Trust me, it's worth the $5/month.
  • If you're still struggling to make and keep a budget, try my Budget Boot Camp program! It's a super fun way to whip your finances into shape, and with my money back guarantee, you have nothing to lose!

And don't forget, if you don't save at LEAST what you paid for the program, I'll refund every dime. You've got nothing to lose! Use the code FCFBLOG to get an extra 10% off, because I love you 😉

Hope that helps! Is your area still price-matching? Let us know in the comments below so we can help each other out. Have a great day, Freebs!



  1. i was told in red wing, mn that price match is ending june 12.
    not sure if the twin cities are ending too.
    since price matching has ended in your area, do they still have savings catcher?

    • Savings Catcher is still going strong, but it really doesn’t work well from my own personal use and anyone else that I’ve asked. But it’s better than nothing, I guess!

  2. Walmart said that everyone should call corporate to ask them please to continue to price match and that the store savings catcher is not accurate and that customers will just go to the store with the current sales to save money and Walmart will actually lose business by stopping.

  3. Walmart ending their price matching practice is one more reason I will be shopping there much less and doing more of my shopping at their competitors stores. Also, I am sure many of your followers find that Walmart is not “the low price leader”, as they proclaim to be.

  4. They are ending price matching at my local Walmart, Rosemead CA, today June 12, 2017.

    I don’t know if you have covered this before but on another Walmart price savings note I find you can often save a substantial amount by shopping the Walmart website before going into the actual brick and mortar store. The identical items are often substantially cheaper on-line where you can choose site-to-store free shipping. Then simply wait a few hours or at most overnight depending on what time you place your on-line order, as long as the items are in stock at your local store. If the items you order are not in stock at your local store I believe Walmart will actually ship the item to your local store at no cost to you!!! You’ll spend a few minutes in line picking up your items when you go into the store, then you can shop the traditional way for any other items you desire.

  5. Price match per a customer service person at the nw expressway wal mart in okla city june 24th, 2017 and surrounding areas, price match has ended. Would call before you head to any in our metroplex. 😞

    • I went to my local Wal-Mart today (Mustang, Oklahoma) & was told it would stop on September 11th, 2017. The above Wal-Mart is where I used to shop before we moved.

  6. Price matching is stopping indefinitely as of July 17,2017 and it will be company/corporate wide.. current csm at Walmart and it is store by store but eventually all stores will no longer do it. Purpose for is because of savings catcher and more people to use it. By price matching in walamrts eyes we are loosing money so therefore if people use savings catcher in one way or the other it comes back to Walmart

  7. The savings catcher is lime auto price match. I get a lot of Wal-Mart money credit for shook bff and I dnt have to check the ads. If they find an ad with a price better they credit you the difference in Wal-Mart bucks. Great deal.

  8. But you NEVER SAID WHY. THEY DID IT. And your right that the super catcher isn’t catching everything and that is stealing from the customers, RIGHT, they said I saved 3.00 it was over 8.00 so who is the fool here. ME for trusting them.
