This applies to Canadian online flyers, and Canadian retailers that offer online purchases." In reading this, it sounds like if I wanted to price match with No Frills Atlantic, which is not in my immediate area, I can do so because they have an online flyer that you can see on their website each week. Is this correct? Or do they also need to offer online purchases as well? Please clarify. Thanks!

    Their response:
    Hello! We have not changed our customer ad match policy. The ad match policy you see written on our flyers and in store signage has not changed. We have always encouraged our store managers to be empowered to run their stores in a manner that gives the best customer experience possible. We want our customers to trust that Walmart offers everyday low prices. If you have a current flyer that advertises a lower price for an identical item, then please bring it into your local Walmart store and the front-end team will be happy to assist you. Thank you. Walmart Canada.

    And based on that response, here is their Ad Match Policy from their website... so they have totally contracted themselves on their Facebook page between October 25 and October 27...
    so yeah, Walmart still doesn't have it's together. See the two bolded, red, underlined parts below:

    http://corporate.walmart.com/ad-match-guarantee

    We’re committed to providing low prices every day. On everything. So if you find a lower advertised price on an identical product, tell us and we’ll match it. Right at the register.

    We gladly match the price in the following types of ads:*



    • Buy one, get one free ads with a specified price
      • Example: Buy one for $2.49, get one free (BOGO)

    • Competitors' ads that feature a specific item for a specified price
    • Preferred shopping card prices for specific items that are in a printed ad
    • For fresh produce and meat items when the price is offered in the same unit type (lb. for lb.; each for each)


    *The following are guidelines and limitations:




    • We will match any local competitor's advertised price.
    • We do not require customers to have the ad with them to honor a competitor's ad.
    • Items purchased must be identical to the ad (size, quantity, brand, flavor, color, etc.)


    We do not match the price in the following types of competitor ads:



    • Items that require a separate purchase to get the ad price
      • example: "Buy [item A] to get [item B] for $C"

    • Items with no actual price that require a purchase to get free product
      • example: "Buy both [items A & B] to get [item C] for free"

    • Items that require a purchase to get a competitors' gift card
      • example: "Buy [item A] to get a $B gift card

    • Buy one, get one free (BOGO) ads with no actual price given
    • Going out of business or closeout prices
    • Percentage off
      • example: "All mascara, 40% off"

    • Competitors' private label price promotions


    We do not honor:



    • Ads when the actual price for items cannot be determined
    • Internet pricing
    • Misprinted ad prices of other retailers
    • "Going out of business" sales or "closeout" prices

    Actually, you're pulling up the U.S. website's Ad Match Policy, which Canada's is loosely based on. However, Walmart Canada does not point people to this link as it is not Walmart Canada's Ad Match Policy. Walmart Canada will direct you to the back of the flyers or:

    http://www.walmart.ca/en/help/products/pricing

    The memo that the stores all got regarding the Ad Match, everyone will note that Walmart Canada has NOT issued anything publicly regarding the change. It was all via the internal memo - a memo that they do not release to the public (they will tell you that all confidential internal documents are not released publicly). Head Office is looking at making Canada-wide price matching part of the current policy, but have not done so yet. For now, it's store by store. And I can tell you, issues are coming up with it that Head Office will have to address before they actually make it part of the policy. Glad to see Walmart Canada doing this - and hope it doesn't get abused (I've heard there is at least one site out there that contains fake flyers, so things like this are going to be watched for) otherwise they may not make it policy - the U.S. doesn't have this, nor do they allow price matching to internet prices, so Canada is ahead of the U.S. Walmart's in this technological age.

    I'm wondering if all stores deal are dealing with PM-ing the same way. At my store they enter the price into the cash as a price adjustment, then they print out a receipt tape, then they fill out form with the item description and price?? It too me 40 min.s to check out today, and I'm hoping there is a way to make this quicker. I PM'd 10 items.

    Oh, that sounds very time consuming! Have they always done it this way or is this new? Kelowna Walmart doesn't do that.

    This is how they always do it, and yes it is time consuming even worse if the cashier is new or unsure. How does Kelowna do it? TIA

    All they do is override the price. The cashiers are getting more familiar with the stores I price match, so today was super fast. I just use my iPad to take Rebee screenshots of the flyers I want to use. Once at the store I make a new folder in my photo albums called Walmart. I then transfer the Rebee flyer photos for the items I actually end up buying into this file. When I go to check out I have the items in order of my photos on the cashier's belt. I go once a week and know 3 cashiers who are very competent at price matching. I was wondering if things had changed when you posted your experience, but it was business as usual today. Maybe you need to visit Kelowna.

    Walmart has not changed it's official policy yet...and they may not ever put it in writing... but stores are honoring it. In Canada we have had so many retailer upsets that now they are competing hard for biz. If they are not just ask them to contact head office and check for the changes.

    This year Walmart has not made as much as last year and numbers are projected to go down further... here is part of the reasons in my area.

    In spring last year Target opened 5 locations in calgary and walmart was milking that void for all it was worth... Target opened their numbers went down... as did every other grocery chains. I know walmart is crying the blues that their profit margin went down... but they are smart they expected it.

    We had 3 new stores open under one chain name here. Save On Foods has opened 3 brand newly built stores inside our city.

    Sobeys bought out almost all safeway locations... the remaining locations have been purchased by Save On Foods and Coop.

    Pc bought out shoppers.

    HBC sold as well.

    This many changes in a marketplace in a year is unheard of. The thing that will keep walmart going is customer loyalty.

    Why don't they change their policy officially?
    They are going above and beyond to make customers happy and this extra we are afforded is not in the walmart world wide guidelines or platform. When the people in the USA with a much more stable market ask for nation wide pming they can say some stores managers may allow it in canada but it is not our policy. This means they can take it away, restrict, change and claim it was never their policy at any time... it gives them the fluid ability to change and adapt this process so it isn't a massive money losing venture. From a biz perspective it is a rather clever strategy.

    Long story short, I don't think they will change the "official policy" any time soon, but they are being fair enough to allow us to do it anyway.

    Thanks SYHEM I might have to check out Kelowna. At this location I have to print the flyers. which is ok with me and I put all items for a single flyer together and have them circled so in that way its pretty smooth sailings, its all the printing receipts and writing up the PM's (every flavor gets a separate slip) that takes so long. I kinda thought other stores must be doing things differently I may try passing the info on to the manager and see what he says, I don't mind waiting but I hate having to hold up others in line, and at my store they wont open a till for me. Thanks for the info.

    .... There have been a few management changes in my neck of the woods and each manager brings his or her own rules. Two stores have changed policies surrounding this recently. They do not have to adopt the Canada-wide policy as it was merely permission granted by H.O. to follow such a procedure, not a requirement. Thankfully my local store knows it has to compete with our Target fiercely and is stretching the policies as far as they can.

    u r lucky to have target and then walmart price matching canada-wide. I'm surrounded by 3 walmarts; all so picky about price matching locally and sadly no target
