Some of you may not know that Wal-Mart will price match local competitor's grocery prices as long as they aren't percentage off or buy 1 get 1 free. I price match something almost every time I go to Wal-Mart and use a coupon on top of that. I bring my sales papers in with me with the item/s circled and place the items at the beginning of my order and let the cashier know. I've also done this with video games as well. It saves gas and you only have to go to one store for all your purchases.

Did you know WalMart prices matches competitor ads? Take 10 minutes and go through the grocery circulars and jot down the item and price of what you'd like. When shopping, put a handheld basket (with your priced matched items in it) in your shopping cart to make checking out a breeze. Example of a good deal: cherries at WalMart were $2.99; I got them priced matched at $.99! :o)
My DW didn't like using coupons, so I cut out a number of items from different stores and took them to Walmart for its Price Match policy. After going home,she figured that just by price matching against Walmarts prices we saved $5.87 - more than 10 percent of our bill. Now she price matches, immediately goes home and figures the savings and puts the money into a a special savings account. In three months we have saved $71 - almost one room-night for vacation!
Many bricks-and-mortar retail stores clearly tell you that any "price match" that they offer does not apply to matching online vendor prices. Not always true! Recently got in-store price match by comparing a "ship-to-store" price elsewhere, also one store recently matched an Amazon.com price. Worth asking, at least!
