Good news! Walmart has just made it easier for you to save more money. We’ve gotten a sneak peek at a NEW program called Savings Catcher. We’ve been checking out all the features and results for the last week to share this exciting program. It will fully launch to everyone on August 4th so keep reading so your ready to get started as soon as you can.
Savings Catcher Launches August 4!
How Does It Work?
Walmart does most of the work for you. After you submit your receipt Walmart compares your purchases against local competitors advertised prices and if there is an advertised lower price for an item, you get back the difference on a Walmart Rewards eGift Card. You can choose when you want to redeem your savings whether it be every time they find savings for you or you can let it accumulate and get it in one lump sum. I’m planning on saving up ours until it’s time for Christmas shopping. One little tidbit, you can only accumulate a total of $599.99 for the entire year.
But what does Savings Catcher do for you? It can save you time and give you piece of mind that you’ve paid the lowest prices for the products you use every day.
There is no minimum purchase required. And the program applies to many everyday items like most grocery items, consumable items such as paper towels and trash bags along with health and beauty items including shampoo and makeup. As well as select general merchandise items.
What Do You Need To Do To Get Started!
Visit the Walmart Savings Cather page and create your account… Simply sign up using your email, it’s as easy as that. And if you’re already have a Walmart account all you need to do is sign in with an existing account.
Three Ways To Submit A Receipt
On Your Computer
- Enter the receipt number (the TC number at the bottom of the receipt) in the Walmart.com/savingscatcher.
- Or, scan the code at the bottom of your receipt with 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 the receipt is submitted to Savings Catcher for you.
Works With Coupons And Price Matching
Don’t stop using your coupons. Savings Catcher allows you to continue using coupons, as a matter of fact it is possible to double the coupon value. Let’s look at an example, you buy an item that retails for $2.00 and use a 0.25 coupon so you end up paying $1.75 for the item. Submit the receipt to Savings Catcher and it finds the item on sale at a competitor for $1.75 and you will receive 0.25 back through the Savings Catcher so you have then doubled your savings!
You can also continue to price match at check out if you wish as well.
As with any retailers’ program there are limitations to be aware of
- You can submit up to 7 receipts a week.
- Does not apply to on-line purchases, only in-store purchases qualify.
- You cannot submit receipts older than 7 days.
