My Trip to Walmart Last Night

* This post is written from my personal experience at our Iron Mountain, MI Walmart. Each Walmart may be different in how they carry out their coupon/ad matching policy.

I decided to really take Walmart at their word last night....They are really promoting their "matching any store's prices policy," and so I decided to put it to the test.

I told you here about how our Iron Mountain, MI Walmart has had "five deals" each week. These are basically the top five "price matches" from nearby stores.

They also price-match competitor coupons and ads (even from more than 50 miles away - such as Target.)

I went in super organized. I had cut out the pictures/prices of the things I wanted in the Super One, Econo and even Ebeling's in Norway, MI. (I did this for my own benefit, so I wasn't standing there flipping through the ad at the checkout.) I had also cut out the Target coupons that I wanted to use. Next, I grouped these with the manufacturers coupons that I wanted to use on the same products. The trickiest part was making sure that I put these items aside when I checked out - keeping them to the back so I could stick the ad picture/coupon on top of it.

Here are the price-match deals that I got:

$3.00/2 (Super One Ad)
- $1.00 Baby Swiss Cheez-Its (Printable Coupon Here)
= $ .50 each after coupons and price-match!

Glade Spring Collection Spray
- $1.00 (Printable Target Coupon Here)
- $1.00 (4/3 SmartSource Coupon Insert)
= $ .50 after coupon and price-match of the Target coupon!

Rice Krispy Treats, 8 count
$1.99 (Super One Ad)
- $1.00/2 (Coupon from Rice Krispy Treats box)
= $1.49 each after coupon and price-match!

Folgers Coffee, 33.9 oz.
$6.99 (Normally $9.68 - one of the "five deals" of the week)
- $2.00 (Printable Coupon - no longer available)
= $4.99 after coupon and price-match!

Fisher Boy Fish Sticks, 48 count
$1.99 (Econo Ad)
- $ .75 (Printable Coupon Here)
= $1.24 each after coupon and price-match!

Romaine Lettuce
$1.00 each (Super One Ad)

$1.00, 16 oz. bag (Super One Ad)

Fresh Green Beans
$1.00/lb. (Super One Ad)

Zucchini Squash
$1.00/lb. (Super One Ad)

Whole Mushrooms, 8 oz.
$ .98 (Ebeling's Ad)

Here are a few other deals that were not price-matches:

Minute Maid Orange Juice
- $1.00 (Printable Coupon Here)
= $1.88 each after coupon!

Kraft Touch of Philadelphia Shredded Cheese
- $1.00 (Printable Coupon Here)
= $1.00 each after coupon!

Malt O Meal Bag Frosted Mini Wheat Cereal
- $1.00/2 (Printable Coupon Here)
= $1.74 each after coupon!

Gold Bond Ultimate Body Wash Sample and Coupon

Walmart is giving away FREE samples of Gold Bond Ultimate Body Wash here. You can also print a $1.00 Off Gold Bond Body Wash coupon.

Toy Printable Coupons = Great Time to Buy Gifts!

 I have been posting a lot recently about all of the great printable toy coupons that are available right is another great deal. The $5.00 Off Any Easy Bake Kit Product coupon also works on the Easy Bake refills...that should make them FREE or almost free!
Also, the Strawberry Shortcake in a Purse coupon makes it a great price at Walmart and Target! Both stores have it priced for around $6.50...just $3.50 after the $3.00 off coupon!

$1.00 Off Blue Bunny Ice Cream

I just logged in to the Blue Bunny I-Scream Team page, and was able to print a coupon for $1.00 Off Any Blue Bunny Novelty Ice Cream!

Two Walmart "Updates" (Iron Mountain, MI)

Wow! Walmart is really making an effort to be more "coupon/deal friendly." At least our Iron Mountain, MI Walmart is...

I have told you before about how they have been price-matching competitor coupons (not just those within a 50 mile radius either), plus letting me use a manufacturers coupon with that.

Well, have you heard about the "top five deals for the week?" My friend, Diane, called me this morning to tell me about it, and of course I had to call Walmart right away to get the scoop.

When the person answered the phone, they said, "Thank you for calling Walmart, where we match all of our competitor store ads. How can I help you?!"

I asked her what these new "five deals" were that people had been telling me about, and she said that basically they pick the "top five" deals at competitor stores and automatically give you those deals without you having to bring in/tell them about a competitor ad. (Supposedly the cashier is supposed to ring these up without you telling them, but you probably want to keep a close eye on it in case they forget.) This explains why the milk has been cheaper at Walmart lately - have you noticed that?!

Here are the "top five" deals that Walmart (Iron Mountain, MI) is automatically offering this week:

- Gallon Milk - $2.50
- Dozen Large Eggs - $1.00
- Any Brand 2 Liter Soda - $ .88
- Angel Soft Toilet Paper, 12 pack double rolls - $4.99
- Folgers Coffee (Not Colombian) 35 oz. - $6.99
* Now don't forget, you can also use a manufacturers coupon on top of these deals...

I have also heard that you do not have to bring in the actual ad just have to tell them the price, and they will match it...This one seems kind of weird to me...I think I will still bring in the ad just to be safe!

Also, my friend Julie was in there on Wednesday night with a "FREE product coupon." The lady told her that they now have to give you the "maximum value" of your FREE product coupon even if the item that you are buying is under that amount! For example, if the FREE product coupon says that the maximum value of your FREE item is $5.00 and the item you are getting is only $4.00, they will still take $5.00 off of your bill! I haven't tried this one yet, but you can be sure I will!

Come back here and let me know what you think about these new changes...

$5.00 Off Barbie Fairy Secret

Go here to print a coupon for $5.00 Off Barbie: A Fairy Secret.

* This is priced at around $14.99 at Walmart.

Macy's Printable: Today and Tomorrow Only!

Macy's has a great coupon for today and tomorrow (April 15 and 16) from opening until 1:00pm:

Save $10.00 Off a $25.00 Purchase

Request $10.00 in Coupons from Febreze!

FREE Fries at Arby's: Today Only!

Print this coupon for a FREE Arby's Curly Fries today only (4/15).

* Has anyone else run into problems trying to use coupons at our Iron Mountain, MI Arby's? I have always used them with no problems until Wednesday night...she said, "We don't usually take these, but I will take them this time." Then, she told me I could only use one coupon (not two). Strange since we have often used Arby's coupons at that Arby's!

It's baaaacckk!!! My favorite sale of the year...K Mart has all of their Clearance Toys on sale for an extra 50% off of the clearance prices!

They seem to do this several times a year, and this is when I stock up on birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, baby shower gifts, etc. It is so much better for me to buy nice birthday party gifts now for $4.00 each, rather then running out when we get a party invitation and spending $10.00 on a "okay" gift.

I got a total of 16 toys for $75.00! Included in these toys were Trio Building sets, Lego Toy Story sets and Barbie furniture! My best deal is with the Iron Man 2 toys and the coupons that were in the paper this weekend:
