Price Matching at Green Bay area stores: Is it for you?

Have you heard the term price-matching?  It’s when one store will match the prices of a competitor’s advertised price.  Theoretically it can make your life easier because you do not have to run to more than one store to get what you want.   Therefore price-matching can save you time as well as your money.

Some of the biggest name-stores in the Green Bay area that price match are Target, Shopko and Wal-Mart.  They don’t just price-match each other, they price match most of the area grocery and drug stores like the following:

  • Target
  • Wal-Mart
  • Shopko
  • Festival Foods
  • Copps
  • Big Lots
  • Dollar General
  • Family Dollar
  • Piggly Wiggly
  • Walgreens
  •  CVS

The good thing about Wal-Mart’s price matching is that you do not need a physical copy of the ad with you when you want to price match.  At Target and Shopko, you will need a copy of the competitor’s ad.  Each store has the same basic requirements: items must be exactly as described in the ad including size, they will not price-match percentages off or going-out-of business sales.  For more information on each specific policy, read them below:

The bad thing is that it may take a little more time to check out, depending upon the cashier, the manager and the particular store.  I have had great success price-matching at Green Bay East Wal-Mart.

I know of some people who do all their shopping at one of the above stores because of price-matching.  I admit that I do not price-match a lot but it does come in handy.

Do you price-match?  What tips do you have for readers?

Do you know of other stores that price match in our area?
