THERE is an everyday item you probably have in your bag you right now that can get you huge discounts while shopping at Walmart.
The one gadget you need to score major savings at the Walmart checkout counter is your phone, according to a money savings expert.
Walmart has an app that can help you get the best deals whenever you shop in the store, says The Pricer CEO Alec Pow.
So if you want to start taking advantage of the helpful cost cutting tip, all you will need to do is grab your cell phone and download the app.
“One small trick I use to always get the best deals at Walmart is to shop with the official Walmart app opened on my phone,” the money saving expert told GoBankingRates.com.
According to Pow, looking at the app while strolling the aisles at your local Walmart will help you compare prices.
“I always compare the shelf prices with the online app ones for the same product," هو قال.
If you find an item selling for cheaper on the Walmart app than the price advertised on the store shelf, the retail chain will honor the lowest price.
“You might think that there isn’t a big disparity between these two prices but that’s not always the case," هو شرح.

Apparently one of the reasons for the price disparity is that the discounts show up online first.
It then takes some time for the stores to change the prices on their shelves.
“There are a lot of products that will receive a huge discount on the app and it would take a while for that discount to be updated for in-store products,” said Pow.
