Walmart is an awesome and affordable place to make a lot of purchases. However, there are a few things you should never buy at Walmart! I’ve made a list of the top five things to never purchase at Walmart below!
1. TV from Walmart
For instance, this Samsung TV on Walmart is listed on sale for $847.99. If you search the same model number on Best Buy‘s website, you’ll notice the price is almost identical! Best Buy does list the TV as $2 more than Walmart, but they offer a price match so you can get the Walmart price at Best Buy.
Along with price match, you will get a FREE Google Nest Mini and Apple Music for FREE for 4 months if you’re a new subscriber! In addition to these awesome bonuses, you’ll see that the retail price of the TV is listed on Best Buy for much less than on Walmart – Best Buy is the accurate retail price.
On top of all of that – Walmart also notes that this TV sale is a limited time offer – but this sale has been going on since November… seems a little confusing to me.
2. Batteries from Walmart
In the Walmart listing below, you’ll see a 16 pack of batteries for $0.80 per battery – seems like a great deal! Nope. The same batteries can be purchased in a 24 pack for just about $1 more on Amazon! This is pretty much always the case, beware! Don’t forget to check per unit pricing – this almost always saves you money!
3. Groceries from Walmart
Walmart is very aggressive when it comes to marketing their groceries, and lots of shoppers chose Walmart for grocery shopping! However, it’s important to check out consumer surveys where Walmart‘s groceries often rank last in satisfaction.
In a recent article written on Kiplinger.com, Trader Joes and Aldi were actually found to have better deals on organic produce, and were reported to have a higher quality of produce. It is worth the switch!
4. Vitamins from Walmart
What a waste of money!
5. Furniture from Walmart
I don’t want to be too hard on Walmart here, but let’s be honest, it isn’t a furniture store. While they do have some reasonably priced pieces that aren’t an awful quality by any means, they are not the best quality either.
Other furniture-centric stores like wayfair.com or overstock.com often have promotions and pricing that directly competes with Walmart‘s pricing but offers a much higher quality product. Definitely worth it to shop elsewhere for furniture!
While there are all things I do not recommend buying from Walmart, there are still awesome deals that are worth at Walmart! Don’t forget to check out my current deals page for deals on products from Walmart, Best Buy and more!
