Here are all of the Publix deals that are better deals when you price match at Walmart 5/1-5/7.

Last fall Walmart started testing a new way to price match BOGO deals in Florida. They are matching the BOGO sale at the Walmart price! Everywhere else the deal is matched at the original store price. So, Florida shoppers here is a list of the BOGO deals that I would price match in Walmart.


They will not take competitor coupons, so some items are better deals in Publix (I left those off the list).

I’ve put in how much you would save on the item at Walmart versus buying it at Publix ex: (save 14¢)

Walmart corporate says you don’t need to the Publix ad with you… I would highly recommend bringing an ad though.  Have it on your phone or in hand.  You’ll price match at the register.

Walmart doesn’t always sell the same size products.  Purex is an example.  Walmart doesn’t sell an 83-100 oz bottle.  According to the price match policy you wouldn’t be able to price match the deal if they don’t have the exact size specified.

I walked my store to get these prices so you will find that your store is higher or lower on some items.

    • guest

      Thank you! :)

    • Mary

      Wonder if this will come to Georgia?

    • Nadine

      I’d still rather pay Publix prices since Walmart’s policy is at the Customer Service Manager’s discretion…..and can change from one customer to another.

    • stacy

      Our walmart uses publix prices when price matching. So make sure you know what your local walmart does when it.comes to this.

    • mcwfamily

      Any one have experience price matching at any walmart stores in north Tampa, Lutz or Spring Hill areas?

      • Colleen Kelly

        I always go to the New Tampa Wal*Mart and with the Publix flyer, they will do the BOGO with no problem. I was surprised that if you have 2 coupons, even the coupon for the free one will come off afterward.

    • Colleen Kelly

      This is a weird concern: I can’t find the Jennie-O burgers in the Publix sales flyer? Saw it in the store, but how can Wal*Mart price match if it’s not in the flyer? I live in Tampa.

      • mcwfamily

        I see it listed online. Can you show them the online ad from your phone?

    • Angie Mac

      Thanks for this list! I love it!

    • Paula

      My Walmarts in Jacksonville/Orange Park area will let u use Target, WinnDixie or
      Publix coupons too WITH manufacturer coupons making it even cheaper!

    • BD

      These savings are not worth it if it keeps a company as immoral as Walmart is in business. Walmart has no respect for employees nor customers and treats its workforce horribly. Not to mention, WM usually doesn’t have the right match on the product and even if it does, management may say they won’t match…. or make you feel like a criminal if they do! Just say no to WM! Publix deserves our loyalty and to make a little profit if we hope to see them stay in business.

    • Marte Archer

      still not worth shopping at walmart for groceries. publixs overall is still better with or without bogos – the cashiers at my walmart the first time i tried to do the bogos had no idea what was going on and would not accept my word had to get a manager and was told each walmart is separate with their policies which later i found out to be a lie.

    • Save1more

      Based on this list, I could save about $10 at Walmart, more I guess if I included the other stores and price matching (like SavALot’s 2/$1 avacados), but I just don’t like shopping at WalMart! The lines are so long, and I’d have to hover over the register dictating the price on every item.

    • Gina

      i only go to walmart if publix is out. I dont like walmart due to one cashier will tell me i can only use one coupon when doing bogo and another will let me use two one for each. I can never pre figure my trip before going because none of them are on the same track when it comes to couponing. And like everyone else says theres not enough registers open, plus at publix i always feel welcome with or without coupons.

    • TOni

      The Breakstone, Klondike, and Rubbermaid deals look good to me.

    • kc-n-sassy

      Walmart has to match an ad price. They will not match a online price or other Walmart though. When I am couponing at Walmart I go to lawn and garden register they seem to be faster in that area. But if they need a manager they take a minute longer to get there. Our local Walmart has never given me a problem. I don’t know why everyone bashes Walmart ,,,,yeah I agree more lines need to be open at times. Did u ever think that maybe a couple people called off and they are trying their best to cover the shortage……seriously…..patience is something u need to work at I guess….
