Did you know that the prices on clearance items aren’t always updated? This happens occassionally at Walmart. In fact, today I checked the prices on some outdoor chairs I’ve been eyeing. It turns out that they were less than the clearance price that was marked. I’m glad I knew how to check for the most current price!

For some people, going to the cash register and being surprised with a lower price is fun. Others of us want to know what the final price is before we buy an item. Here are a couple of methods I use to find the lowest price:

THE WALMART APP SCANNER:

Whenever I am at Walmart, I shop the clearance sections. I make sure to have my Walmart app available on my phone since I can use the built-in scanner to find the current price for that item in that particular store.

  1. Touch the “scan bar code” icon at the very right of the search bar on the main page.
  2. The next screen will be a scanner.
  3. Wave your phone over the bar code of the clearance sticker or product bar code.
  4. The next screen on the Walmart app will take you to the item in that specific store, and the price will be featured.

IN-STORE SCANNERS:

There is also an in-store price scanner. As it says on the monitor pictured, pass the item’s bar code under the scanner. The price will appear. When you want the price on larger items, like outdoor patio furniture, using the Walmart app on your phone is much easier to scan.

MY FANTASTIC FIND:

I scored two Outdoor Woven Chairs for $7.00 each. They were marked at $10.00 (which was already a great deal), but I was very surprised to see an even lower price when I scanned them with my phone. I bought two for a total of $14.00!
