Price matching with staples

I read the price matching policy but I am not sure about one thing.

Most of the staples deals are limited in quantity..like only 2 items per customer.
If i price match at walmart..will they only price match for 2 items as well? Or can i buy more than that for the adjusted price?
Thanks!

All things considered, they *should* limit you to how many the Staples ad limits you to. However, other people here have had their Wal-Marts not stick to the limits, so I think you should *expect* them to stick to the limit, but it seems like some of them don't. (Or the cashiers don't notice; I'm sure right now is a busy time for them.)

I have never done that. I would suggest u try to price match it with two at first.If they give u trouble with that then do not buy more than 2 the next time you go. If they don't then you should try to buy more of them a few days later though. Also if you are trying to do the staples penny deals they might make u buy an additional $5 worth of stuff.

I never understood the concept behind price matching at wal Mart. Why not just go to the store offering the lower price so there is no hassle? Frankly it could just me and my reluctance to go to wal mart for anything other than my contacts and eye exams.

Well you can price match if u don't have the time to go to a whole bunch of different stores and also if a store has a limit of 4 like coupons u can price match it then use more than 4 coupons.

I price match because I live rurally so it saves me gas and time. Also, Kmart and cvs are 30 miles from our town, so I miss out on ebc's and crt's if I price match them but I save my gas money and my time. My time is very precious, so anything that allows me to have time and money to devote to the most important things ( kids) it is worth it to me.

I price match because we are a one-car family and DH needs the car for work...he's gone 12-13 hours a day 5 days a week (more if there's weekend OT). Weekends are both our family time AND our shopping/errand time, and I don't want to waste it driving to multiple stores. It also saves gas money, which maximizes our savings.

I won't say I don't PM, but it is very rare for me to do it because, like you, I hate stepping foot in Walmart. I will usually only PM if my store is out of stock on the item. I hate dealing with rain checks.

Thanks for the replies. Frankly, I rather not deal with Wal Mart. Before I started couponing I still went to Winn Dixie for groceries and paid a little more to avoid the trek to wal mart. Their meat is disgusting to me (other than the boneless chicken thighs and breast) and dealing with their "trained staff" is simply not worth saving $3.00 or so.

I hate dealing with the hassle of getting their actual prices. I can't imagine dealing with them trying to get them to accept someone else's prices. I can see them telling me they don't carry Winn Dixie brand eggs so they can't price match Wal Mart branded eggs. No thank you.

I don't think WM had the exact same pack of mechanical pencils, which is probably why they didn't honor it.

A little late for this, but mine did have the exact mechanical pencils, was not gonna do the pm , finally did and then very nastily said well you can only get 4. Which was fine with me. I only go to Wal-mart for MM's. In fact many times I don't even bother with them. Lately they have been on every nerve I have. I have to drive to get to any of them, and by the time I figure in Gas and my time, they are usually not even worth it. But a good MM always sucks me back in.
