They will price match a competitor with an actual ad.

Yes, you usually will not be hassled with an actual ad.

However, cashiers are only authorized to price adjust up to $10. If the PM price and Walmart price is more than $10 apart, then you have to wait for supervisor approval.

Best Buy (and others) should learn from Wal-Mart's price matching policy.

You go through the normal checkout and the cashier charges you the matching price with no hassle whatsoever! Of course you need to have a copy of the competitor's ad, as mentioned.

It's a model policy that other vendors should learn!

Yeah, in addition to the model PM policy, they also have a satisfaction policy in that if you charge you a wrong price they give you $3 off the total
