Costco is famous among its customers for providing steal prices on buying products in bundles under its membership program. While Costco forces customers to buy the product in prescribed quantities, Walmart doesn’t force them to buy products in any such arrangement. But the question is does Walmart matches the prices offered by Costco? Let’s find out.
Does Walmart Price Match Costco?
According to Walmart’s Price Match Policy, Walmart doesn’t offer price matches but there’s a trick to get the products price matched with Costco’s products. Let’s find out how you can still get the price matched.
As per the policy, there are two scenarios under which purchases are categorized. Let’s find out how it works in both categories:
1. Offline Purchases made at Walmart Stores
Purchases made at Walmart stores can only be price matched with products listed on walmart.com. It doesn’t allow price matching with prices of any other brand like Costco.
2. Online Purchases made at Walmart’s Online Store (Walmart.com)
As per Walmart’s price match policy, Costco doesn’t appear in the list of qualifying retailers directly but it can be price matched if the customer care executive deems it fit to price match with Costco’s listed prices.
How to get the prices matched with Costco’s Listed Prices?
As mentioned above, it doesn’t directly qualify for the price match but you can contact Walmart’s customer care from here and get your product checked if it qualifies for the price match or not.
Why doesn’t Walmart offer Price Match with Costco?
According to Walmart’s price match policy, the prices shown on the other retailers’ websites shouldn’t be the prices that are a result of any sort of membership and the prices shouldn’t be the result of any sort of bundle offer, in Costco, customers shop mostly with its membership card and the prices offered generally are a result of a bundled quantity.
Those are the major reasons due to why Walmart doesn’t offer price match Costco directly whereas customers can try their luck by contacting customer care.
Does Costco offer price matching with products listed on Walmart’s Online Store?
As per CostCo’s price match policy, it doesn’t offer price matching with any store including Walmart, if the customer is dissatisfied with prices listed on Costco, they offer a full refund if the terms and conditions mentioned in the return policy are properly met.
Does Walmart offer price matches with other stores?
Yes, Walmart matches prices with stores like BestBuy, Amazon, Target, and many more.
Unfortunately, Costco is not directly on the list of eligible stores for a price match with Walmart.
But for a check, we’ll still recommend the users to Walmart’s contact customer care as it is mentioned in the policy that for other brands you can contact the customer care executive and their decision shall be the final one.
