Walmart has been matching local competitor ad prices for a while now, but in the state of Florida, Walmart is now also matching BOGO (buy one get one free) deals! I’m so lucky to live in Florida and be able to take advantage of this wonderful promotion, which was surprisingly really hassle-free to complete! I was asked by Walmart to share my experience with you on how to participate in their new BOGO ad match and provide you with a little more information on how it works. But, first, check out this commercial local to the Orlando and Central Florida area to get a better idea of Walmart’s BOGO ad match!
Walmart BOGO Ad Match Commercial for Orlando, Florida Area
Here in Florida, there are several stores that offer weekly BOGO deals which can often go a long way in rounding out your grocery shopping trip. I tend to purchase items my family regularly uses when they go on BOGO sale because most times it means I save quite a bit of money. For those of you that use coupons on top of the BOGO deal, you can really save a lot of money! But, here’s where Walmart’s BOGO ad match works beautifully: you can purchase the first item at Walmart’s everyday low price, plus receive the second item for free! Let me share with you a real example from my own shopping trip.
I purchased frozen pizza that was on BOGO sale at a local grocery store. The pizza cost $6.19, so I would have gotten 2 of them for that price through their BOGO sale. But, at Walmart, the same pizza regularly cost $3.33 so for nearly half the price, I also got 2 pizzas! In fact, I double lucked out because Walmart had the pizza on sale for $2.98 on the day I went shopping, so really I got TWO frozen pizzas for $2.98 thanks to the BOGO ad match! This is just one example of how I saved money and was able to use the BOGO ad match to get two items at the regular, less expensive Walmart price.
How Walmart BOGO Ad Match Works: More Information
Below are a few bullet points sent to me by Walmart to help answer any questions you may have about how BOGO ad match works in the state of Florida:
- Walmart will match the price of any local competitor’s printed ad, including BOGO offers, while their ad is in effect, for an identical product. Our store managers define “local” for each store– they are the experts on their community and know which stores are within the trade area.
- Currently, this only applies to the state of Florida.
- We have placed a limit of 2 BOGO offers per item to make sure all of our customers are able to take advantage of this new policy.
- Walmart accepts one valid manufacturer coupon per item purchased, please see Walmart’s current coupon policy for details. Customers Ad matching BOGO offers can apply a manufacturer’s coupon on both of the items, including the free item.
The process of matching the BOGO deals was super easy and painless. I simply brought the competitor’s printed sales ad to the store with me, showed the cashier the necessary items that were on BOGO sale at the competitor, and she matched the offer right on the spot after scanning the first item at Walmart’s price. I can’t even tell you how excited I am to be able to take advantage of BOGO deals at Walmart now to double up on the savings! I was so excited after my shopping trip, that I texted my husband from the parking lot sharing the excitement with him. (No lie!)
If you’re in Florida, have you taken advantage of Walmart’s BOGO ad match yet? How are you liking it?
