Walmart Price Tracker: How to Monitor Walmart Price Changes?

Walmart Price Tracker: How to Monitor Walmart Price Changes?

If you’re a thrifty shopper who loves low-cost merchandise, then you’re probably familiar with Walmart’s tendency to lower its price tags.

But manually tracking these prices – and comparing them to similar retailers for the best deal – is a challenge.

Shop smarter and get set up with Walmart price tracking so you never miss out on a good deal, and save money – the easy way.

Walmart is massive. It’s the world’s second top retailer, nipping at the heels of Amazon.

Known for its gargantuan size and vast selection, Walmart is probably most famous for regularly discounting its already ground-level price tags, codified in its Every Day Low Price guarantee.

Just this summer, it warmed up the sunny months with some of the best Walmart deals I’ve seen – and I’m an unabashed self-proclaimed deal hunter myself. You can save up to 65% on TVs, PCs, vacuums, kitchenware, toys, video games and sporting goods. I just found a robot vacuum cleaner discounted from $329.99 to $119.99.

Most of Walmart’s deals are online, so it’s generally recommended to survey its website to scoop up the best sales.

Discounted price tags are a norm at Walmart. “Deals for Days” was just last month, where customers ogled at dizzying markdowns spanning nearly every product category – from tech and electronics to fashion and beauty.

It wasn’t a coincidence it overlapped with the Amazon Prime Event; Walmart and Amazon have been famously duking it out for customers for several years now – a high-stakes race that leaves shoppers comparing slippery prices between each retail giant.

The retailers tend to retaliate, back and forth, with further discounted products, making it the opportune strategy for shoppers to get set up with Walmart price tracking, like with Visualping, to always know when to snag a deal.

That’s because, with price competition ablaze between the world’s top retailers, it can be a lot of work manually price tracking for the best price on your own.

Walmart price tracking is difficult – when you’re doing it manually

Giddy-but-muddled shoppers resort to tracking prices themselves: dividing their attention between Walmart and Amazon’s sites, bookmarking all of the product pages they care about and periodically hitting refresh, in hopes of finding their product of interest further discounted.

As it turns out, though, you don’t have to settle for obsessing over the product page for price drops.

You can get set up with a real-time Walmart price tracker that’ll obsess over the pages for you.

And that’s with Visualping.

Your thrifty Walmart price tracker: Visualping

If the trouble of manually rechecking Walmart product pages, and then continuously comparing them to other online retailers, isn’t for you, then consider signing up with a free Walmart price tracker, such as Visualping.

Visualping is the best website change monitoring tool according to G2, the #1 tool for monitoring website changes as recommended by Hongkiat, and the #1 website change detection tool as endorsed by MakeUseOf. Notable publications including Lifehacker, NBC, The Washington Post, and Forbes also vouch for Visualping as the preferred solution for tracking web page changes.

And it can be easily used as a price tracker to monitor price drops.

How does it work?

Anyone can use Visualping to get notified, in real-time, when a web page changes.

When Visualping detects a page change on a Walmart product page – such as the original price crossed out, with the new discounted price next to it – you get price drop notifications via email. Each alert includes a screenshot of the web page, with all the changes highlighted for you to see.


The price drop alerts also include a link at the bottom of the product URL, so you can navigate to the Walmart website and make your purchase – promptly, before the discount catches on and everyone else rushes to snag the product.

Is it free?

Visualping is a free tool online, with several affordable subscription options for higher frequency monitoring, that sends you an email alert when your web page changes.

How to track Walmart prices with Visualping

To get started with Visualping’s Walmart price tracker to get alerted of deals, simply navigate to Visualping’s homepage, and copy and paste the URL of the Walmart product page you want to track. Make sure you selected the store location you want from the local Walmart stores to choose from.


Next, you customize your monitoring settings, such as the part of the page you want monitored, how often you want the page checked, and the email address you want the alerts sent to.

And you’re done!

Step-by-step instructions on how to get set up with Visualping’s Walmart price tracker

Step 1: Search your product page. Copy and paste the Walmart product URL you want to monitor into the search field on Visualping’s homepage. Click Go.

Step 2: Once the page appears in the viewport, select the part of the page you want monitored. For tracking Walmart price drops, this will be the part of the page surrounding with the price.

Step 3: Specify the frequency you want the page checked – every 5 minutes, 30 minutes, hourly, daily, etc.

Step 4: Type the email address you want the alerts sent to. Click Start Monitoring, and that’s it! You’re set to get notified of deals.

Step 5: Visualping will send you an email, asking you to make a password for your account. Don’t forget to do this. The password completes your account, and allows you to login to your user-dashboard, where you can view all your Visualping monitors and email alerts in one location.

Perform these steps as many times as you wish to monitor many products at once time and create a watch list.

Visualping takes automatic screenshots of the product page at regular intervals – every 5 minutes, 30 minutes, hourly, daily, etc – and compares each image to the last to check for changes.

What else can Visualping track?

Visualping is commonly used as a price tracker that alerts you of price drop alerts from any web pages you want online. It’s especially handy during sale events, like when savvy shoppers want automatic alerts on the best Black Friday deals and best Cyber Monday deals of the year.

As well as monitoring Walmart’s stickers, Visualping can also be used for Costco price tracking, Best Buy price tracking and Amazon price tracking.

Visualping is also commonly used to monitor product stock online, to track product availability and get restock alerts when the item you got your eye on goes back in stock.

More specifically, the pricing tracking tool is commonly used to monitor limited-edition products, as a PS5 stock checker and Xbox series X stock tracker.

But it’s more than an online tool to track limited edition video games. On a serious note, during the baby formula shortage in mid 2022, Visualping was used by many parents as a baby formula stock tracker online.

And, during the Coronavirus pandemic, when vaccines were first approved at the onset of 2021, hundreds of thousands used Visualping to be alerted of Covid-19 vaccine availability in their neighborhood.

Walmart Price Tracking Conclusion

By signing up with Walmart price tracking, you don’t have to manually check the product pages yourself, and manually compare them to other sets to ensure you get the best deal.

Simply set up multiple monitors from Walmart’s site and other retailers, to create a watch list and get notified of the best prices to save money.

Set it and forget it – We’ll let you know when the price changes.
