Price match at Wal Mart?

Does Wal Mart price match? I have GC's for WalMart, and want to price match the Usual Suspects SE and Bull Durham SE from Best Buy for $16.99.

Thanks,

Yes, as long as the Wal-Mart is "in competition" with the store you want them to match. Usually means that they're within the same city.

I've never had any problems price-matching at Wal-Mart. I just show the associate the ad, and they adjust the price. Great on Black Friday with Best Buy ads.

I don't even bother going to Best Buy on Black Friday, I go straight to Wal-Mart or Meijer (another store that price matches) and price match.

I assume that you (marcandmag) are talking about real stores, not walmart.com. I don't know if walmart.com will price match or not.

Another good Walmart policy (besides requiring their employees to wear shoes), is their pricing gaurantee. If it rings up wrong, go ahead and pay, then take it to the service desk, they will give you $3 (plus the price difference) if the item is over $3, if the item was under $3 you will get it for free. They rarely offer to give you the $3 when you point out that the item was incorrectly priced, you have to ask them for it.

Ye Gods, yes. Best Buy -- on the day after Thanksgiving -- is just totally nuts. Thousands of people standing in lines that extend to the back of the store -- arms loaded with VCR and DVD player boxes -- it's like a Yuppie refugee camp.

I made the mistake of going there a few years back. How do they manage to have these lines that do not move? I mean, you can stand for up to an hour in the same damned spot. What's up with that?

If you have a Circuit City in your area, take their ad instead. CC has Bull Durham and Usual Suspects listed at $13.99 each.

usually i have no problem price matching at wal mart but today i went in to PM the usual suspects and i almost didn't get it because of the cover mistake in the CC ad. the guy at the counter was giving me a bunch of sh## because it wasn't exactly the same cover. finally he let me have it and i hurried up and left.

Should have opened the movie in front of him. There is a slipcover on it with the pictured cover in the actual case.
