What is Savings Catcher?
At Walmart we have low prices everyday on everything. If a local competitor offers a lower advertised price on an item you purchased at Walmart, we have a new program called Savings Catcher that allows you to get back the difference on a Walmart Rewards eGift Card.

Here’s how it works:
  1. Submit your receipt to Savings Catcher in any one of two 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

 

CAG note: just buy it if you think its cheap, if it doesnt match using this above return the unopened item

Let the discussions begin!

 

 

FAQ:

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.)
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.
 
Does Savings Catcher apply to my online purchases?
No. Savings Catcher applies to your in-store purchases only.
 
Can I submit old receipts?
Your receipt needs to be 7 days old or less. For example, if you shopped on Tuesday, you have until the following Monday to submit your receipt.

Savings Catcher does not currently apply to:

  • 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.

Yep, I'm pretty sure this service is tailored to grocery shoppers.  I would love for them to open up to video games, but I think those prices fluctuate so much that they would immediately regret it or they would get raked over the coals when they don't catch the better price.

So how different is this from just going to the store to get the items price adjusted?

Doesn't even bother me that it doesn't include electronics.
Getting something PMed at the WalMarts around here is a huge pain in the ass. They bend over backwards looking for a reason to deny it.
Like its coming out of their own damn pocket.

Idea is you go to buy, to use an example, a 12 pack of coke for their outrageous price of $4.50 a case.  You get home and see that Target has coke 4/$10.  Instead of returning and rebuying, they skip and step and issue a gift card instead.

 

I do see some potential abuse for it already with food stamps: Normally its supposed to go back on the food stamp card used to purchase the food, but this could, with some working, turn it into cash.

Yeah, widespread food stamp abuse based on scrupulous comparison shopping to turn cents per loaf of bread from EBT credit to money seems like a really serious future problem for America.

You would be surprised: Average selling rate is around $2 FS to $1 cash.  Combined with a lot of the WalMarts in more destitute places, where there are a larger number of people on food stamps, not caring about actually checking ads for food items, yeah, it could be an issue for them in the long-term.

Why take store credit when every other store gives you cash?

The fact that it's done automatically...you just submit your receipt and they do the searching and if/when they find a price difference they send it to you and it's waiting in your email.

 

And I've RARELY received cash from a PM, it's almost always been store credit or back on the credit card.

 

Plus, Walmart money is appealing to me and I'm sure others. You can find us anywhere, just call out our gang name.  It's "Idiots".

Exactly.  And after I go grocery shopping, I don't scan the ads to see if I can price match that bag of pierogies. To me, once my grocery wad is blown, it's out of my mind.  I'll gladly take a few bucks back in credit with no more effort than punching in a few numbers.

You only get cash back if you paid with cash some stores will allow debit under certain amounts too.

One thing alot of ppl are missing is the "ads" part meaning they can easily deny you the pm if the item isn`t in the weekly ad, remember they "don`t match online prices". The "human element" of a store pm is where the real deals happen anyways.

Just got this email today, as I have been using their site for a few weeks now:

 

 

Our Savings Catcher services have expanded:

 

•    Product comparisons now include produce.     

•  Product comparisons now also include select general merchandise items.The number of general merchandise items compared will continue to expand over the coming months.    

•  Now supported in the Walmart app for both iPhone and Android. Just click on the Savings Catcher button from the home screen to submit receipts or see your results.    

•  Now available nationwide. Tell your friends or family members to try it out.

 

 

It says it now includes "general merchandise" which on their old FAQ stated games and electronics. Maybe as of today, they do PM games?

So far I got .63 cents back.  Not great, but better than nothing.
