How To Price Match Meat At Walmart

Price Match Meat at Walmart

Price matching is a fantastic way to save money on your groceries, and one of the best places to price match is at Walmart.

Walmart will allow you to price match pretty much anything, including meat. Here’s how you do it:

Bring Your Flyer

Like you would with any other price match, be sure to bring in the flyer you want to price match. Most times, you can not price match without one.

Printed flyers are usually okay at most locations, just check with your store manager to be certain.

Store Brand for Store Brand

If you want to price match a brand such as Maple Leaf Prime, you can easily do that. But what if you want to price match meat from, say, Loblaws? There is no brand name on the package, which means it’s just the store brand that Loblaws is selling. You can still price match this item at Walmart.

You must purchase the Walmart store brand (Great Value) in place of the Loblaws store brand in order to match the price.

Kilograms, Not Pounds

Most price matches for meat (and produce as well), is done by the kilogram and not by the pound, so you need to make sure the advertisement you are bringing with you shows the kilogram price.

This price is usually smaller than the per pound price on most flyers. If your ad does not have a kilogram price listed, you will not be able to price match (unless a specific size is mentioned – for example, 3 pack chicken breasts for $7).

Size Matters

You also need to make note of what size is on sale. When it comes to ground meats and chicken breasts, it is often the “family pack” that is on sale.

If this is the case, you will need to purchase the family pack size at Walmart as well, in order to price match.

If your flyer does not state that it is a family pack on sale, you can purchase any size (unless there is a specific size other than “family pack” mentioned).

That’s all there is to it. Price matching meat is very easy and is a great way to make your grocery dollars stretch further.

Make sure you tell your cashier that you will be price matching before they start ringing in your items so you can make sure to get your discount.

    Quick question as im new to price matching!does all the price matching have to be done at customer service?or can you do it as your going through the check out?Or do you buy it all first and then point it out at customer services and they refund you your money?Thanks

  2. Lisa says:

    oh also, is it only whats on the flyers?

  3. teachermum says:

    Anywhere I have price matched it has been with store flyers at the cash register. My phone has a low IQ so I cannot answer to where that might work!

    In my area, Walmart, No Frills, Zellers, and now Superstore will price match. I have done it at all four. Apparently now Giant Tiger does as well, though I have not tested that one out yet.

  4. Cassie says:

    Lisa: You cab do it right at the cash, and yes, they will only price match advertised sales.

  5. Sandra says:

    Thanks Cassie…
    Your site is great, love the weekly match-ups, I always seem to miss one or two deals when going through the flyers the match up helps… Thanks

    And it has to be the same put up – you cannot admatch a “$6 whole chicken” for whole chicken at Walmart that is sold by weight.
    As for produce the biggest thing is country of origin. If the bananas in the ad are from Columbia, the ones at WM need to be as well. It’s a thing, but once you know it’s a quick check.

    Hi all i was reading some of your comments on price matching at walmart and i have to say i have price match bananas that were not from the same country as well as whole chickens for a certain base price and gotten walmart chickens that were sold by weight as one point for Mrs. January i have priced matched meat even when it has not had the kg price as well. Maybe i just have a walmart that will do everything as long as it is price match no matter what. I have never had a problem at all at walmart just my thoughts and experience

  8. Las says:

    Walmart does not match store brand names against their brand name. I had this issue yesterday. If I go to target and they have the target brand chickens at .99 cents a pound and Walmart is selling their store brand chicken at 1.99 you can’t price match it.

    • Cassie Howard says:

      Your store was incorrect when they told you that they do not price match store brand for store brand. All Walmart locations do this.

  9. Suzanne says:

    I find that Walmart has the worst quality meats and produce so, I have pretty much stopped going there for all grocery shopping. I now do my shopping at RCSS since their quality is much better and, they also price match. If meat is on sale at Metro, Sobey’s or Halenda’s I will make the extra stop and stock up as, they have the best quality meat IMHO. I think it’s worth the extra bit of effort.

  10. Chelle5d says:

    I just want to make a comment that No Frills will price match meats, and produce in the same way that walmart does the only difference is they will not match a store brand to their no name brand.

  11. amber says:

    Hi just wanted to let everyone know that Walmart no longer does price matching on store brands. You can no longer match a No Name for a Walmart brand etc. This was put in place about 2 weeks ago and I found out while going threw the check out…. horrible customer service

  12. Barbara says:

    Beware I was informed they only price match with stores in the same town. I live in an inbetween town, saying I live dead center betwix three large towns. Columbus, Shelbyville, and Greensburg Indiana. They are each twenty minutes from me. So if I need to go to Jay C, I go to Columbus. So one day I had to pick up my mother’s prescriptions in Greensburg one day and needed groceries which were on sale at Kroger, so I took my flyer. They informed me after I loaded a cart full, that they couldn’t honor it because there was not a Kroger in greensburg so I just left. I understand now it makes sense, but wasted a lot of time… They should advertise they do not honor all local ads just in town ads.

  13. Christy says:

    Starting in 2017 in Canada the cashiers I’ll tell us that they price match nation wide. Maybe that policy has changed.

  14. I am a resident of Canada, the store department manager refused to accept the price match of regular brand chicken , and not only that he then continue to tell me that Walmart doesn’t do price match any more.
