Have you heard about the new Walmart Savings Catcher?
If you are like me you probably price match at Walmart all the time. I am really liking the Savings Catcher though. I still ad match the same as I always but then I save my receipt and go to walmart.com/savingscatcher and enter the receipt number. If there are any items on the receipt that were on sale that week somewhere else and you forgot to ad match or missed the ad match Walmart will send you a gift card.
This will probably come in real handy here soon with Christmas shopping. I am anxious to see how it works then.
I have received a couple of dollars in the form of an eGift Card. It’s not a ton so far, but I feel pretty good about the way it is working. Every cent counts after all! I have to say it is super simple too!
Here is some more information:
How It Works
- Here’s how it works:
Submit your receipt to Savings Catcher in any one of three ways:
- Enter the receipt number (the TC number) into Savings Catcher at Walmart.com/savingscatcher. You’ll find this number located near the bottom of your printed Walmart store receipt.
- Or, scan the code at the bottom of your printed store receipt, using the scanner in the Savings Catcher section of the Walmart app.
- Or, register your phone number using the Walmart app or debit card reader located at in-store checkout. Then each time you check out at a Walmart store, enter your phone number and we’ll submit your receipt to Savings Catcher for you.
Savings Catcher compares the prices of the eligible items you bought at Walmart to the advertised prices found in the print and online versions of the weekly ads of top retailers in your area. The ads must be valid at the time you made your Walmart purchase.
If Savings Catcher finds an advertised price that is lower than what you paid for the same exact item at Walmart, you’ll get back the difference on a Walmart Rewards eGift Card.
- Is there a minimum purchase required?
No. There is no minimum purchase requirement. Simply submit your receipt to get started.
- How many receipts can I submit?
You can submit up to 7 receipts per week to Savings Catcher.
- Is Savings Catcher available on my smartphone?
Yes. You can access Savings Catcher by downloading the Walmart app or by going to www.walmart.com/savingscatcher on your smartphone.
- What types of promotions does Savings Catcher include?
Savings Catcher compares eligible items on your receipt to items found in the print and digital weekly ads of top retailers in your area. The ads must be valid at the time you made your Walmart purchase and include a specific item price.
- What types of promotions does Savings Catcher not include?
Savings Catcher does not compare the following types of offers:
Items that require a separate purchase to get the advertised price (example: “Buy oatmeal to get cereal for $1.”)
Items with no actual price that require a purchase to get a free product (example: “Buy both oatmeal & cereal to get milk for free.”)
Items that require a purchase to get a gift card (example: “Buy a 12 pack of paper towels to get a $5 gift card.”)
Buy one get one free (BOGO) deals where no item price is listed (example: Peter Pan Peanut Butter, buy one, get one free. Save up to $2.50.”)
Going out of business or closeout prices.
Percentage off (example: “All mascara, 40% off.)
- Does Savings Catcher apply to my online purchases?
No. Savings Catcher applies to your in-store purchases only.
- Do my savings accumulate?
That’s entirely up to you. You have the option to accumulate your Rewards Dollars and build your balance in Savings Catcher or transfer it onto a Walmart Rewards eGift Card whenever and as often as you choose. If you haven’t redeemed your Rewards Dollars at the end of the calendar year, Walmart will automatically transfer them onto a Walmart Rewards eGift Card and notify you.
- What happens if I use coupons?
No problem, you can still use Savings Catcher. If you use a coupon, Savings Catcher will compare the original Walmart price of the item, before the coupon was applied, to other stores’ advertised prices for the same item. For example: You bought cookies at Walmart. The shelf price was $3 and you used a coupon for $0.25, so you paid $2.75. If Savings Catcher finds that a competitor advertised those same cookies for $2.00, Savings Catcher will still credit you $1.00, even though you paid only $2.75 at Walmart.
