Savvy shoppers are on the hunt for every strategy they can find that allows them to stay within their budgets while shopping at their favorite stores — including Walmart.
If you’re planning to shop at Walmart and want to keep more money in your wallet, here’s a list of ways you can reel in 50% or more in savings.
Shop Walmart’s Thousands of Rollbacks Throughout the Year
Longtime Walmart shoppers are familiar with Walmart’s Rollbacks, where temporary price reductions are offered on items sold throughout the store. A Walmart spokesperson told GOBankingRates Walmart regularly offers Rollbacks on top of its everyday low prices to deliver even deeper savings for its customers.
Right now, Walmart has active Rollbacks on thousands of products. Customers can find these savings in stores and online and save no matter how they choose to shop with Walmart.
Sign Up for Walmart+
Signing up for Walmart+ gives customers a suite of benefits. Some of these include free delivery from stores, free shipping on Walmart.com purchases with no order minimum, use of mobile Scan & Go, fuel discounts of up to 10 cents per gallon and early and exclusive access to savings events and entertainment perks like six months of Spotify Premium for free.
Walmart+ is often cited as one of the best ways to earn extra deals and savings for Walmart shoppers, but do you know how much you can save by signing up? At $98 a year, or $12.95 per month, investing in Walmart+ can save shoppers over $800+ a year with free delivery from stores, said the Walmart spokesperson. (Please note that restrictions apply. Free delivery is offered on $35 minimum order amounts and dollar savings are based on two deliveries per week versus the non-member $7.95 fee.)
Buy Walmart’s Private Brands
From Great Value and Marketside private brands in the grocery department to Mainstays and No Boundaries in home goods and apparel, customers can find high-quality items across the store that won’t break the bank.
Walmart’s private brands have a solid reputation of offering great quality and exceptional value, so customers don’t have to compromise in order to save money.
Take Advantage of Coupon Stacking
Kristen Gall, retail and shopping expert at Rakuten, recommends practicing coupon stacking when shopping at Walmart. Coupon stacking, for those unfamiliar with the term, is the practice of applying multiple coupons — like a store coupon and manufacturer coupon — to a single product and receiving the greatest possible discount.
“Before shopping, make sure you have your coupons in order and check out all of the deals available to ensure you are saving the most possible,” said Gall.
Score the Deepest Discounts During Walmart’s Savings Events
Save the date for Black Friday and other events like the recent Walmart+ Weekend event. These savings events offer deeper savings on top of the retailer’s everyday low prices. Customers can get the best prices on the most sought-after items, including electronics, tech, home goods, toys, apparel and more.
Sign Up for Walmart’s Newsletters and Marketing Emails
You never know when a surprise deal or promotion will be announced, so savvy shoppers stay in the know. Keep up with the latest savings at Walmart by signing up for their e-newsletters and marketing emails.
“Typically, retailers send out larger marketing emails to allow customers who are signed up to be the first to know and draw buzz,” said Gall. “Following Walmart on social media is also a great way to stay up to date on any sales or deals going on.”
