Walmart doesn’t offer an everyday senior discount or a designated senior discount day in its stores or online.
We confirmed this information with Walmart’s corporate customer service department and several store locations.
Note that some businesses located within Walmart — such as nail salons, hair salons, or fast food restaurants — may offer their own senior discounts.
For example, some Subway locations inside Walmart stores offer a percentage off a meal or a free drink to seniors.
These discounts vary by location, so it’s best to contact your local store to see if any discounts are available and to find out the minimum age requirements for such promotions.
Other Ways to Save at Walmart
Though Walmart doesn’t offer a senior discount, there are various other ways to save at the superstore.
Get the best deals using the following:
- Clearance, Rollbacks, and Special Buys: Walmart offers Rollbacks and other special pricing in stores and online. In stores, signage will mark discounted items; you can also see Walmart’s current price cuts online. Our previous research explains how to find “hidden” clearance at Walmart.
- Coupons: To see current deals and coupons, see your local Walmart’s weekly ad. Note that Walmart doesn’t accept expired coupons.
- Price matching: If you find the same item for a lower price at another store, Walmart may match that price. See the details in our research on Walmart’s price matching policy.
- Cardholder benefits: If you have a Walmart credit card, you can earn up to 5% cash back on purchases (as previously reported).

You have done a fantastic job of assembling this list especially since you have made direct contact with these stores to verify the discount and any of the limitations or things that are needed to be eligible for them. I’m sure there’s been a number of visits that I have missed out on since I had no idea to even ask.
I think the Fry’s discount should be automatically applied to the purchase without any need to ask for it since they have that info already from the VIP card application! I know it’ll be hard to remember to schedule that one day a month for a specific visit, but if I can do it, that’s at least a $10 discount for me.
Thank you, Zinda! We’re glad to hear that you found our article helpful.
That is an interesting idea for Fry’s — you may want to call and suggest it! You can reach Fry’s customer service at (800) 576-4377. To help you remember when to schedule those visits, we have a list of all of the Fry’s senior days for 2020 in our dedicated article on the Fry’s senior discount policy.
walmart dose not matchprice any more
Walmart stores can set their own price match policies, so it might be that your local stores doesn’t price match anymore, but many will. Walmart.com also price matches, but only with a select list of other online retailers. Check the Walmart.com price match policy for the list of stores. It’s a pretty long list, and even includes Amazon.com. You can also price match an item in a Walmart store with a lower price on Walmart.com.
There has to be some protection for seniors for late charge of 35 dollars when we overlook our accounts. I have been charged over 200 dollars this year. You have to have some empathy for us.
In many cases, banks will be happy to waive late or overdraft fees for good customers who have only a few such incidents on their account. It may be worth reaching out to your bank to see if they would be willing to work with you to dismiss at least some of the fees. Best of luck!
