Shoppers know Walmart® has the best rates, so there's no reason to look for creative ways to save any more dollars. But we're here to tell you that Walmart®'s low daily price is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to saving money. Here are five ingenious Walmart® money-saving ideas.
Early morning shopping is highly recommended.
By early, we mean shop between the hours of 8 and 9 a.m. on weekdays. Employees typically markdown clearance items first thing in the morning. As a result, shopping early allows you to get "first dibs" on meat, bread, fruits, and vegetables, all while saving money.
Crack the Walmart® price tag code.
- The original price usually ends with a 7. For example, $2.97 or $5.57. If you see a price ending in 7, you’re paying full price.
- 1st markdown price ends with a 5 or 0. For example, $3.25 or $45.00. This is clearly a better deal than the previous one, but it isn't the cheapest the item may be.
- The FINAL markdown price ends with a 1. For example, $4.91 or $57.01. This is the lowest price at which the item would be available.
Coupons can be redeemed for cash.
If the coupon value is higher than the price of the goods, the surplus can be returned to the customer as cash or added to the basket purchase.
