*Thanks Price Matcherz for sponsoring today’s post!
Many of you know I was on 3 episodes of TLC’s Extreme Couponing and this blog started out as a coupon blog! Then we had our 4th child and it turned my world upside down. I don’t “Coupon” as much as I used to. I was introduced to the website PriceMatcherz.com and I love it!
They gave me a challenge to use their website for a shopping trip to Walmart and see how much, if any, I could save on a price matching trip.
On their website, they break their lists down by state, then by city, and you can see all the best deals in the store ads in one place. So instead of scanning every single ad yourself, they have done all the work for you.
So below are the items I needed to get at Walmart. I typed them in on my phone and grouped them by store so when I checkout, I don’t have to have a handful of ads, I just have my list. Walmart DOES NOT require you to have the ad you are price matching from so keep note of that.
Most grocery stores do what iscalled high/low pricing so one week their prices will be higher, and other weeks they will have big sales and they will be lower. Walmart does what’s called everyday low prices so they don’t really have sales, they occasionally have rollbacks so on the grocery stores higher weeks, Walmart will be lower.
With the amazing gift of price matching, you can take any local store’s ad, find the things you need and price match those items to Walmart.
When you are checking out, inform the cashier that you will have some price match items. I had those in the front of my order. As she scanned the items, I would tell her what price they are and what store I am price matching it to.
So here is how my trip went below…
First I went for the ketchup.
Price match to Albertson’s: $1.99
Savings of $.50
Next is the salad dressing.
Price Matched to Albertson’s $.99
Ssvings of $.99
Next is the fruit loops.
Priced MAtched to Walgreens $1.99
Savings of $.99
Price matched to Walgreens $6.99
Savings of $.99
Priced matched to Walgreens $4.00
Savings of $.44
Price matched to King Soopers $1.88
SAvings of $.62
Price matched to King soopers $1.99
Savings of $.89
So here is the final breakdown. I don’t know about you but not having to use coupons and only putting in minimal work, I will save a savings of over $5 anyway! So if I did this on my weekly trips, in a month I could save over $20! I will take that anyway!
