Price Comparison Made Easy
I received the opportunity to try out and review my experience using PriceMatcherz.com. Their website provides a free local price match list to be used at Walmart. I’m always down with new ways to save a buck, so naturally, I was excited to see how much I would save. Honestly, I expected to save somewhere in the neighborhood of about $5 or so.
The first thing I did after checking out the website, was try to figure out what products I was going to buy. I use coupons regularly, but I typically don’t take the time to put together sales ads with coupons. It just takes too long, in my opinion, and I can never seem to get the same kinds of results that other people are able to get.
Then I saw it. Something clicked and I suddenly realized that some of the items listed had “coupon alert” next to the sale price. Now, I was getting somewhere. If they were making it that easy for me to put 2 and 2 together, I may as well give it a try. I scanned through the items that were marked with coupons to find the things that I needed.
I decided on these things:
- Pampers Jumbo Pack 18-37 ct. with a sale price of $8.99 at Kroger
- Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner 24 oz. with a sale price of $1.99 at Kroger
- Purex Detergent 122-150 oz. with a sale price of $5.99 at Kroger
I made my list, deciding to get two of each product. With seven people in the house, 2 of which are in diapers, it can only help to have back-up products. I clicked on the link to print out my limit of 2 for each coupon, except for the Purex. Here’s the coupons I printed:
- Pampers Baby Dry, Jumbo Pack - $1.50 off
- Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner - 75 cents off
- Purex Detergent - $3 off when you buy two bottles
My last step was to make notes on the paper I printed out (from the screenshot I took) from the site, so that I wouldn’t lose track of what I was doing. Walmart has a tendency to distract me.
Here’s how my shopping trip worked out (with totals).
Prices at Walmart:
Pampers - 28 ct. - $9.98 x 2 = $19.96
Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner - $2.98 x 2 = $5.96
Purex - 150 oz. - $6.98 x 2 = $13.96
Total = $39.88
Sale Prices using PriceMatcherz.com:
Pampers - $8.99 x 2 = $17.98
Lysol - $1.99 x 2 = $3.98
Purex - $5.99 x 2 = $11.98
Total = $33.94
Total Coupon Savings = $7.50
Grand Total (after savings) = $26.44
Total Savings using PriceMatcherz = $13.44
Needless to say, this worked out much better than I could have hoped for, and I am one happy camper. That $13.44 that I saved from my shopping trip, using the easiest price comparison process I have ever attempted, can now buy an extra bag of diapers and another box of wipes. Excellent! I can’t ignore results like that. I will definitely be doing this with every shopping trip from this day forward.
Time to give your two cents:
