If you haven’t heard the news yet, Walmart has rolled out a new way to save more money at their stores! Walmart Savings Catcher is a new way to price match where they will do all the work for you! If a price for an item is lower at a local competitor’s store than what is offered at Walmart, Savings Catcher will give you the difference in an eGift card. Almost sounds too good to be true!
How it works:
The first thing you will need to do to get started is sign up for a Walmart.com account if you don’t already have one. Once you are set up you will make your purchase at Walmart and then scan your receipt with the app or you can enter the TC# onto the Walmart Savings Catcher Site. You can find the TC # at the bottom of your receipt.
After the receipt has been loaded, they will search for any lower prices from competitors in the area. Please be aware that the ads must be valid at the time you made your Walmart purchase. Your receipt needs to be 7 days old or less as well to get the difference credited. So if you shopped on Tuesday, you have until the next Monday to submit your receipt.
There is no minimum purchase that you need to make, and you can submit up to 7 receipts a week! The same rules and exclusions that apply to the Walmart Ad Matching Policy, apply here also so they will not honor BOGO free promotions or percentages off.
Once your receipt has been accepted results can take up to 72 hours to be ready. At that time, the funds will be deposited into your account as “Reward Dollars” and you can transfer them out to Walmart Rewards eGift Card!
The best part is, you can still price match and use coupons in the stores as well! Then enter your receipt into Savings Catcher and see if there was anything you missed! You might have missed a deal and not even realized it!
Just a couple more quick tips to note. Walmart Savings Catcher does not apply to the following:
- Store brands, deli, bakery and weighed items like meat.
- General merchandise items, (including, but not limited to, electronics, media and gaming, toys, sporting goods, housewares, small appliances, home décor, bedding, books and magazines, apparel and shoes, jewelry, furniture, office supplies and seasonal products).
- Non-branded items.
- Tobacco, firearms, gasoline, tires, prescription drugs, optical and photo products and services, or products that require a service agreement such as wireless, automotive or financial products
So there will still be some items that you will only be able ad-match in store like the produce or meat that is on sale by the pound.
Don’t forget to check out the Walmart Coupon Deals Category before you head to the store so you can see what other great buys Walmart has to offer you while you’re there!
