Buying tires at Walmart
Here is Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s pricing policy: "We’re committed to providing low prices every day. On everything. So if you find a lower (local) advertised price on an identical product, tell us and we’ll match it."
I checked out pricing on a Fitbit Charge Activity Wristband over the holidays and found it at Walmart (the official corporate spelling is Wal-Mart; the dba spelling is one word) for $129.95, the same price as at Dick's Sporting Goods Inc. At Target Corp., the wristband designed to track "steps, distance, calories burned, floors climbed and active minutes" was $129.99.
Only time will tell how low the price could go at Walmart stores given its policy. But I can give you an idea on how Walmart prices its tires.
I have tracked the company's advertised tire pricing for three years. What jumps out at me is Walmart only advertises tires when they are on sale.
Here is an apples-to-apples comparison that may give you more insight into how Walmart sells tires.
Goodyear Integrity P185/65R15
Nov. 2011: Sales price, $65 (actual price, $103).
Nov. 2013: Sales price, $59 (actual price, $95).
Nov. 2014: Sales price, $59 (actual price $81).
Goodyear Eagle RS-A 195/60R15
Nov. 2011: Sales price, $59 (actual price, $93).
Nov. 2013: Sales price, $59 (actual price, $86).
Nov. 2014: Sales price, $59 (actual price $72).
Given the relative consistency of the sales prices, I wonder how many drivers buy the tires at full price?Are those November 2014 prices the lowest around? Do you ever force Walmart to match your prices? Let me know by leaving a comment!
