Walmart Price Match

Here is the Walmart Canada price match policy:

Walmart Canada Price Match Policy

We’re committed to providing low prices every day. On everything. So if you find a lower advertised price on an identical product, tell us and we’ll match it. Right at the register.

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 at a specific retailer (Example: $2.99)
  • 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 competitors’ advertised price
  • 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
  • Competitor ads from outside of the store’s local trade territory

    I just attempted to purchase a television from and asked them to ad match with a Canadian competitor who has advertised the tv for $850 in-store only. Walmart refused to match since the competitor’s deal is only in-store.

    This makes no sense since Walmart does not honor online pricing, so if they also refuse to honor in-store pricing, there is nothing left to honor!

    I live on Prince Edward Island if I see a flyer in BC and the item is on sale there the wal mart on PEI will price match that item? I just notice in the Wal mart rules it says they will only price match any local competitors price what does that mean. BC is not local to PEI thank you so much.

  3. Vanessa says:

    At Walmart, will they accept price matches from online flyers that are presented on a cell phone for example? Apps like Flipp are great but it would be better if they would accept those price matches!! Thanks!

  4. Adam says:

    Will Walmart match a buy 2/10$ or get 1 for 5.99 deal?

  5. TT says:

    no they will not.

    meat department, wm packaged back rib and competitor non packaging open product back rib will wm price match.

  7. Tiny says:

    Walmart by Rexdale and Islington would not price match my product because they were selling there product for 49$ and I got it somewhere else for 22$ and both managers said that they can they would be loosing too much money I shop there all the time but this time they lost a customer because they advertise false advertisment and don’t live up to what they say…….

  8. Lisa says:

    Today I tried to price match at wm and was told I couldn’t do this. Farmboy had boneless/skinless chicken on for $3.99/lb. I had picked up their chicken, without a name. They are all portioned/charge $10 each. Other cashiers have done previously so would like to know what should apply here. tyia!

  9. I was just turned away at the Prince Albert, SK store after a request to price match a juicing appliances. The exact same item was offered, in store, at the nearest Costco in saskatoon, in which we frequent.

    The argument was made that even though this is the nearest Costco, they would not match, indicating that it was not local……

    Unfortunately, after our in store discussion, I left the store without the juicer…. I will be attending to Costco to retrieve this appliance.

    Walmart price match the local flyers, it does not cover all the stores across canada.

  11. Jacquie says:

    Has anyone noticed if they’ve ‘officially’ changed their policy regarding apps like FLIPP? My local store recently hasn’t even been interested in seeing my flyers (I had them with me) once I pulled my Flipp app & rhymed my prices off from there. But I don’t wanna “assume” I can avoid grabbing the flyer package yet! I’d love to save a few trees though. Wally’s Price Matching is the only reason I get physical flyers still…

  12. Sherri Myers says:

    They do, I have used the Flipp App many times at the Walmart register.

  13. Adam says:

    To Ali,

    What do you mean WM in Ontario accepts Ads nation wide then just local. Does that mean I can show them an Ad from P.E.I and they will price match for me if I’m in Ontario?

  14. Ali says:

    They recently changed their policy to nation wide ad matching. It used to just be flyers that you would get for your town.

  15. Lou wilks says:

    The policy says local competitor. What does local mean?
