Heads up, folks: In the latest change to rock the couponing world, Walmart will be eliminating price matching in hundreds of its stores next month. No comprehensive list is currently available, but signs are going up now in about 500 affected stores to inform shoppers that “as of June 9, 2016, our ad match policy will be discontinued at this store. Instead, we’re lowering our prices on thousands of items.”
My guess would be that if the “lower prices, no price matching” strategy proves successful at these stores, we’ll see more of this rolling out nationwide. (This will initially affect only about 10% of about 5100 Walmart stores nationwide.)
Have you spotted a sign announcing the end of price matching at your own local Walmart? Please comment here with the location — and I’d love to see a photo, if you have one to share.
