    In less than a month, Walmart Canada will discontinue its ad-matching program throughout the country.
    “Over time, we have seen minimal usage of our ad match program, while at the same time the program has been causing delays at the checkout,” a spokesperson told Global News in an email.

    Source: https://globalnews.ca/news/7343931/w...ching-program/

    Not sure of minimal usage, I used it all the time.

    It is going to really suck for this family if they stop price matching at RCSS. We will have to spend a lot more time and gas actually having to go the store that actually has it on sale rather then just going to RCSS for a one stop shop. The other big factor will be it will eliminate being able to stack multiple discount savings on the same item. EG price match + coupon + pc points and sometimes if you were lucky you could even add in CO51

    @Thatdone I am thinking the same here for my family because we do most of our Shopping at RCSS . We occasionally go to Walmart to PM and it has to be a store that RCSS would not PM with. FreshCo also reduce there list as of Sept 7 . The one next to me used to PM all Loblaws banner store , Sobeys, FoodBasic , Metro Nations, Oceans, and others that I can’t remember now there list is just Walmart, RCSS, Food Basic and No Frills

    Minimal usage very likely just means that PMed items only comprise a small % of WM's total sales. For me, this is easy to believe because I realize that serious PMers make up only a very small % of all consumers. In my case, out of all the people I know IRL, there's only one who PMs seriously. Some others PM and/or coupon casually, and most do (almost) none of either, even when I tell them about deals.

    That is so sad,.,... I rarely go to wal mart I am a maxi and cie kind of person because maxi and cie is 10 minutes in car from me and wal mart is at the end of the city so maybe 25 minutes ........but I liked the fact that wal mart pming is more than the 4 items policie of maxi and maybe giant tiger,..(I am not sure I rarelly go there,end of the city too)
    And they pmed all the stores and pharmacies in my area ......i finded that very conveniant...
    Maxi only pm provigo ,giant tiger,metro,super c ,iga and pharmaprix(sdm)
    maxi used to pmed all at the beginning but i guess with people abusing or I dont frankly know the reason ..they stopped this and they are super severe....so yes that suck big time ...not happy

    After October 15, I have no reason to set foot inside Walmart again.

    I will just price match at Maxi and Giant Tiger and go to individual stores for their own specials.

    Honestly, we rarely shop at Wal-Mart and when we do it is because we want to Price Match so I see our shopping trips going down.

    It surprises me how they say the volume of Price Matching has gone but when hearing people discuss it so many people are upset by this decision and say they will shop elsewhere. I know someone said the view is skewed being on Smart Canucks but even reading about this elsewhere (Facebook, 680 News, Radio, CTV News) a lot of people are upset over this move and say they Price Match at Wal-Mart.

    The samples are skewed on all those sources because none of them have any interest in quoting ow showing someone who says it will barely affect them or won't affect them at all. So what they all did was ask one person after the next until they found someone who said what they wanted to appear in their report.

    I find the spokeperson's statement is contradicting "minimal usage of our ad match program, while at the same time the program has been causing delays at the checkout"
    if there is a low usage of ad match then there should be less frequent delays at the checkout
    plus, they could train their employees better then there should not be any delays whether the delay is due to price matching or other reasons.
