Take Advantage Of Wal-Mart Matching

Wal-Mart announced as part of their Black Friday promotion campaign that they “will match any price featured in a local competitor’s print advertisement if it has the identical product in stock.” If this is true, there should be some great bargains to pick up at your local Wal-Mart.

    Our Wal-Mart not only matches the price, they beat it.

    I did the comparison in Central Michigan area. Big retailers are Meijer, K-Mart, Wal-Mart, Kroger. There are very few identical products at least 2 of the retailers carry (one being Wal-Mart), so going to Wal-Mart and demanding a lower price based on the competition is almost impossible. I tried that with electronics – Meijer has iPod Nano, Wal-Mart doesn’t, Wal-Mart has Philips Two Gig Mp3 Players, K-Mart doesn’t, and so forth.

    Whoever at Wal-Mart decided to do the “price match” gimmick, was a sharp fella.
