10 Ways to Save Major Cash at Walmart
Of all the gargantuan chains in America, Walmart is up there as one of the most affordable. However, we're ALWAYS interested in saving extra cash — no matter where we're shopping! Ahead are 10 tips and tricks to save at the beloved retail corporation. Bonus: they're supersimple!
Shop the Great Value items.
Check Walmart's in-store product labels for Great Value, because they're, well, great value.
Seek out clearances.
Walmart tends to advertise its clearances with big signs and bright logos, so the sales should be fairly simple to locate.
Use the Walmart app.
A quick scroll through Walmart's app will help you find the best bargains online and in-store.
Take advantage of price matching.
Walmart will price match both local competitors and online retailers — including Amazon! Simply provide proof of the competing price on your phone. Read more about Walmart's policy on this here.
Shop the website.
It's beneficial to shop Walmart's website, since it offers exclusive online specials. Plus, you don't have to leave your couch!
Shop early in the morning.
Walmart's shelves are restocked very early in the mornings, so make a trip just after the sun rises. This way, you'll snag the best deals before your fellow shoppers do!
Ibotta is a free app that will give you cash back for everyday items you buy at specific retailers, including Walmart. All you have to do is upload a picture of your receipt — so don't throw 'em out!
Get a Walmart credit card.
You'll save 10 percent on purchases of up to $250 after opening a Walmart credit card account, and you'll save three percent on website buys.
Take advantage of the Savings Catcher feature.
Another way to get money back on purchases? The Savings Catcher feature, which compares prices and gives you back the difference. You can use the Walmart app to access it.
Get your prescriptions at Walmart.
You may be eligible for a $4 perscription refill — yes, four dollars! — which Walmart offers for a wide variety of medications. See this list for more details.
