Some of you probably already know how much I love Walmart. If not just check out my post on how I feed my family for $85 a week from Walmart post HERE. You just can’t beat the convenience of Walmart and they really do almost always have the best prices on everything. Now maybe why I love Walmart so much may have a little something to do with the fact that it’s the only large chain store that I have within 45 miles of my home so options are slim pickings ya know. but in all honesty, I love the quality of nearly all WalMart I’ve tried and over the years. And I have uncovered some really great Walmart hacks I want to share with all of you today.
Shop “Great Value” or “Equate” brands.
You can save a ton if you’re willing to shop the Walmart store brands. Their Great Value products in the grocery section are offered on just about everything. Some of our favorite great value brand items are trash bags, paper plates, and diapers. Just to name a few. I buy the great value brand whenever its an option.
Walmarts savings catcher app
Most Walmarts don’t price match anymore but that’s ok because if you use the savings catcher app they do that for you. You simply scan your receipt and within a few days they load the money you saved to a gift card. another great thing about the savings catcher app is that if you need to make a return they can just scan your phone. So you can throw away all those paper receipts in the bottom of your purse.
You can also take advantage of Ibotta savings in addition to Walmart Savings Catcher. That can add up to some major savings. Ibotta offers some amazing rebates on everything from milk to medications. If you aren’t already using Ibotta you’re missing out on some serious savings. SIGN UP HERE
Walmart will price match some online stores
Walmart will still price match some online stores, like Amazon and also Walmarts online process because did you know Walmart in-store prices are often much higher than the online price? Crazy right! I always check on bigger ticket items before checking out.
Walmart has great clothing options
Clothing at Walmart has really come along way over the years. Walmart is the only place I buy jeans for my kids, the fit is amazing and they are really great quality and you can just not beat the price. We also buy all our undergarments and PJs from Walmart, again can’t beat the quality and price.
Get money back for items that price drops
Did you know if you purchase an item at Walmart on say Monday, and then your back at the store on Friday and notice the price has dropped, You can take your receipt to customer service and they will issue you money back on a gift card? You can price adjust for 7 days after you have purchased the item.
Since Walmart is open 24 hours they stock shelves during the night shift. Early in the morning is the best time to shop Walmart because it’s less crowded, shelves are fully stocked, and you can find the best deals on marked down meats and produce during this time before everything is picked over by the afternoon shoppers. 6am-10am is best if possible.
Seasonal produce at great prices
Did you know Walmart has some of the best prices on produce seasonally? I have seen bananas as low as $.29 and strawberries as low as $.89 in the summer months. Those prices beat our nearest Aldis.
Walmarts grocery pick-up
If your local Walmart offers grocery pick up. That is really the only hack in my book that you need to know. Ok, kidding! Walmart grocery has helped simplify grocery shopping for my family and saved my sanity. With 5 kids and 2 of those twin toddlers, grocery shopping could be painful. Tantrums and meltdowns and fighting the crowds. I would leave the store with a cart full and nothing I needed. It was bad.
And then they rolled out Walmarts grocery pick up and I saw a light at the end of the tunnel. Seriously it’s that good. If they ever stop doing this I may just hide and cry. Or hire someone to do my shopping for me because I don’t know that I could ever go back now that I’ve seen the good side. I could write a whole post just about why I love it so much but you get the point right? SIGN UP HERE
Shop online and pick up at the store
Did you know you can order almost anything from Walmart online? Seriously like anything. They have a huge selection online. I have purchased a stroller, wagon, sports equipment, and many other things you wouldn’t typically think Walmart would carry. But once I did a quick google search on that item turns out Walmart carries it and for the best price. Always check Walmart first before purchasing somewhere else. You can always get it delivered to your store for free and pick up right at the store.
And those are your 10 Walmart hacks you need to know right now! I hope you enjoyed this post and are ready to go find some great deals at your local Walmart!
