Will Walmart Ad Match Big Lots?

Since starting this blog I have been contacted by readers many times with questions about couponing, Frugal Living, Walmart’s policies and procedures, and various other little things.  I figure if one person is wondering about it, there might be others so this will be an on-going feature to answer the most common questions that come up.  If you have a question, add “PastorAarn” on Skype or email me at groceryshopforfreeatthemart [at] gmail [dot] com.

Short answer? No.

Walmart’s policy states We do not match the price in the following types of competitor ads:Going out of business or closeout prices.  Big Lots is a closeout store so Walmart will not Ad Match them according to their policy.

However, anytime you talk about Walmart’s policies it needs to be pointed out that these policies are not written in stone.  Every store manager  has the ability to override virtually any store policy on a whim so if you see an awesome deal that you want to Ad Match, ask the CSM or store manager.  If you ask nice and haven’t done anything crazy to make them not like you, they will often say yes.  But if they say no, don’t get upset.  They are just following their written procedures.
