Walmart has established itself as being one of the cheapest big box retailers out there, offering "everyday low prices" on everyday items. However, to get even bigger bargains there's a strategy to shopping at this chain. Here are a few key tips on how to optimize shopping at the retailer and cash in on the best deals

Groceries
Walmart is a great place to buy groceries, a loyal 15-year customer says. According to this experienced shopper, you can save up to 30 percent on basic items like cereal and canned goods. Just stay away from the produce -- you can get fresher fruits and vegetables elsewhere. Also, make sure to check the expiration dates on items. Walmart has been known to leave expired items on shelves.

Coupons
If you have a coupon, make sure to print out Walmart's latest coupon policy, as cashiers may not be familiar with the updated practices. And if what you want isn't in stock, Walmart does issue rain checks, says TheDealYo. However, much like in the case of coupons, it's best to have a copy of the full disclaimer in hand when you're shopping in person.
