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

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

  2. TT says:

    no they will not.

  3. vincent says:

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

  4. 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…….

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. Sherri Myers says:

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

  10. Ashley says:

    What is the km ratio for local? There has to be a limit. I want to know what is. We need a guideline for local.

  11. I’m wondering why a customer can just “rhyme” off prices of items to a cashier without the not even double checking the items? Could this open up doors for anyone just rhyming off whatever prices they want and the cashier takes their word for it?? Crazy.

  12. Kathy Oakley says:

    If Walmart stops price matching just go to Fresco or giant tiger in Canada. I think if we all did this Walmart would be severely effected

  13. Kathy Oakley says:

    Fresco and giant tiger also price match and yes Fresco and giant tiger are in Ontario

  14. Amy says:

    I saw online that
    500 US walmart stores are going to stop price matching but offer lower prices on items that are commonly price matched thus reducing the need to price match. Is this coming to Canada?

  15. Debbie says:

    I would like to know if the Branford Walmart is one of the 500 Canadian stores that will be discontinuing the price matching. And if so when would this be going into effect.
