This couponing and saving question comes from Kim…
Today, I followed your list for Walmart but, when I went to the Eastgate Walmart, a bunch of the prices were higher. The cashier told me that every Walmart has different prices. That should be illegal. Anyway, did you know that? Are your prices for the Cincinnati market?
Kim, yes, my prices are from the Cincinnati market (specifically the store on Cin-Day in West Chester). However, in saying that Walmart prices are so regional – even stores within 10 minutes from one another regional.
I've also found, and heard, that if you visit a newer Walmart, the prices are much higher as well. That should definitely be illegal but it's not uncommon with some other stores as well (I've noticed it with my Meijer stores too).
This price discrepancy issue is the reason I haven't covered Walmart in the past. And only recently starting to maintain an everyday Walmart pricing list that I *thought* was more realistic to what I have been reading. I'm finding that the prices are just as much out of whack as the others. Here I thought our prices were high compared to other stores. I guess it's a huge reason why I rarely shop at Walmart. Everyday low pricing seems to be geographic.
Since I'm hearing there are more variances with the Walmart Everyday Price list we maintain and what readers are finding, I have created this post which allows for comments. It has all of the regular prices that we have found. If you find a price that is different in your region for that list, leave it in the comments there. Perhaps it will help others out who are shopping in your neck of the woods.
Does anyone else have major discrepancies in their Walmart prices, even amongst stores in your own city?
