1.Use Your Smartphone.
Your smartphone is your friend in the saving money game. This is especially true at Walmart. Using the Walmart app with SavingsCatcher, is perhaps one of the easiest ways to save at Walmart! All you have to do is scan your receipt and from there the work is done for you! Walmart Savings Catcher will compare prices at other retailers and if those prices are less than what you paid, you will be credited the difference on a Walmart gift card. Sounds pretty easy to me.
You can also download rebate apps such as Ibotta and Checkout51 to get rebates back on popular items. It’s as easy as snapping a photo of your receipt. Make sure you read my post on the best money saving apps for the grocery store.
2. Shop Clearance.
When shopping at Walmart, be sure to check the end caps for clearance deals. Walmart stores also often have Clearance aisles. You’ll recognize them from the many bright yellow clearance balloons that you see rising above the aisle. Make sure you have your coupons ready as well. Stacking coupons with Walmart clearance deals can score you some rock bottom prices.
This is also a great time to stock up on clothing during the off season. You will find shirts, hats and shorts for as low as $.50 when marked down on clearance. I love to shop ahead and put these away for when we will need them. I have some of the large plastic storage containers and just put my clearance finds in there. It’s so nice to be able to just pull out what the kids need and not have to go buy it at full price. This saves me a ton each year. Kid’s grow so fast and it seems they are always needing new clothes. I often find amazing clearance deals cheaper than second hand items. Last year I found boys shorts for only $1! I stocked up and when Summer rolled around they were set!
3. Does Walmart price match?
Walmart in store price match is no longer available. They did away with price adjustments or matching (at least a most stores). If your store still prices matches, make sure you read my post on how to price match at Walmart.

They do however offer price matching to Walmart.com. If the item you are shopping for has a Rollback price on the website, but not in store. Simply show your associate and they will match the lower price. They also offer price adjustments if the price on your item changes within the specified period. They also will price match to select online retailers. You can see the list of valid retailers here. Note the item has to be sold and fulfilled by one of these online companies.
4. Use Coupons.
I mentioned earlier about using coupons in combination with clearance prices, but you should use them on regular priced items as well! When you are shopping for groceries or household items at Walmart, coupons are a great way to save because the prices are already so low. Learn how to get free coupons in the mail!

5. Shop Online.
