4 Tricks To Avoid Overpaying on Your Next Purchase

Here's four super quick tips to save you some dough next time you go shopping.

1. Install Cently for Chrome

2. Take Advantage of Walmart's Price Match

Walmart's clearance is marked down on a store-by-store basis. Walmart's online price match policy applies to competitors and their own online store.

"If you find a current lower online price on an identical in-stock product, tell us and we'll match it. Right at the register."

Essentially if you find a price for an item on that's cheaper than in-store, Walmart will give you the lower price inside the store.

And if you find a lower competitor price online, they'll match that price too.

3. Game Walmart's Pricing System

Walmart's clearance is marked down on a store-by-store basis and generally they have a sneaky system for marking down clearance items. If you know it, you can use it to score the best Walmart deals! Here's the inside scoop, a price:

Ending in 7 means it's original full price (eg. $50.07).

Ending in 5 means it's a markdown price (eg. $40.05).

Ending in 1 means it's a final markdown (eg. $30.01).

Basically if a price ends in 1 you should probably buy the item as it's the best deal. If it ends in 5 you may want to hold out depending on the stock/inventory level.

4. Find Hidden "Clearance" Deals Online

If you scan Walmart's homepage, you won't find a link to their Clearance section easily. In fact, it's pretty tough to navigate to it from anywhere.

Instead, just type "clearance" into the search bar and a list of Clearance sections will appear. Flip through and see if any deals pique your interest.

That's it! Start off by downloading the Cently extension and start saving money and time today!
