Walmart Canada Price Match Policy.

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

    What is Walmarts policy on advertised sale items? Purex 64 load is on sale this week with the ad showing a picture of the blue bottles but the ad does not specify select varieties so can I get the green Purex 64 load bottles even though they are not pictured?

    Hi.. This may be a silly question. I’m not sure if this is considered price matching or not… But will walmart price match themselves? If I wanted to buy a treadmill in Canada will they price match a treadmill that they have in the states? It’s the same treadmill but $100 cheaper in the states then in Canada. For example.. In Niagara Falls buffalo New York it’s $100 cheaper then a walmart in Hamilton ontario. Thanks!:)

    I’m new at this price matching craze. I was wondering if you can use coupons if you’re price matching on a buy 1 get 1 product.

  4. Riaz Khimji says:

    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.

  6. 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!

  7. Adam says:

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

  8. TT says:

    no they will not.

    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?

  10. 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.

  11. Lou wilks says:

    The policy says local competitor. What does local mean?

  12. Cassie Howard says:

    Walmart will price match ANY store in Canada, excluding warehouse and wholesale price, and they do accept printed flyers (confirmed in Ontario only).

  13. steve adams says:

    Question…will WM match price on flyer pages printed from a computer printer, or do they have to be actual store flyers? By way of example, there is a No Frills ~ 20 km’s from our local WM store, but because I’m on the other side – ~ 40 km away – I don’t get their flyers. So I’d like to be able to print off the hot priced items and use for price match. Think it should be ok – legit competitors pricing on a current flyer within 30 km’s of the store – but wondering if you’ve encountered same, and what the response was?
