Walmart offers holiday price guarantee

Posted October 25, 2011

Walmart is offering a new holiday price guarantee this season. If you buy an item at Walmart and find it somewhere else for less money, they will give you a Walmart gift card for the difference! Here are the details:

Guarantee good at U.S. Walmart store from November 1, 2011 through December 25, 2011.

Black Friday ads, expired ads, percent-off ads, clearance ads and online prices are not included in the offer.

Items on layaway are eligible for the guarantee. In case you didn't already know, Walmart is offering layaway again this holiday season.

To get the gift card, you have to bring in the Walmart receipt for the item and the competitor's ad by December 25, 2011.

    That's really cool! And...very smart on their part. Like Nancy said, people won't wait until last minute to buy and many people will most likely forget them paid a few more $$$ for it when they first bought it and won't even bother with the gift card deal : )

    From a marketing standpoint, it's excellent. People won't hold out and buy last minute thinking a better deal will come along and they're stuck.

    Brilliant actually.

    If you are referring to the regular price matching they always do, it doesn't look like it. The holiday guarantee excludes groceries. Here is the wording from their website:

    "The Christmas Price Guarantee does not apply to grocery items, non-branded items (i.e. live plants), tobacco, firearms, gasoline, tires, prescription drugs, optical, or wireless products that require a service agreement."

    No, this is for items that you have already purchased.

    Does this replace their "match it" campaign?
