Walmart’s Price Cutting Makes It More Competitive With Amazon

December 17, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Studies by Deutsche Bank conducted two weeks apart found that Amazon.com’s prices on 65 identical items went from 8.3 percent lower than Walmart’s to five percent lower, a clear indication of Walmart’s “renewed focus on offering cheaper merchandise” and its stronger emphasis on e-commerce as it struggles with business stagnation in the U.S. Walmart has introduced a smartphone app (Savings Catcher) that compares its prices to other mass retailers and refunds the differences on a gift card. The Deutsche Bank study found that Target’s prices were 7.9 percent higher than Amazon's, making it the most expensive of the big retailers.
