**UPDATE** As of February 13, 2015, there have been a couple changes to the Walmart Savings Catcher Program. There are TWO significant changes. First, they will no longer compare items such as produce and bakery items. Second, they will no longer compare prices to drug stores. Keep in mind that you can still manually price match these items in store. They just will not be matched through the Saving Catcher program.
Have you wanted to price match at Walmart but find it frustrating, confusing or time consuming? Then, you will love the new Savings Catcher Program from Walmart!
Here’s how the program works:
- Shop at Walmart
- Go HERE and enter your receipt (TC) number and date printed on the bottom of your store receipt (must be within last 7 days). You will be prompted to login to your Walmart.com account.Or, you can scan the barcode at the bottom of your receipt in the Walmart Mobile App.
- Savings Catcher scans circulars from top competitors in your area for advertised details that match the eligible items on your receipt. This can take up to three days.
- If Savings Catcher finds a lower advertised price, you get the difference in a Walmart eGift Card. Amounts credited will remain in your account until you elect to redeem the accrued Savings Catcher Credits or will be automatically redeemed at the end of the calendar year. The Walmart eGift Card will be sent to the email address you have on file with your Walmart.com account.
The following categories of items are not eligible for comparison using the Walmart Savings Catcher:
- Private label, deli, bakery, and weighed products like produce and meat items.
- 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.
You can submit a maximum of 7 receipts per week.
As I mentioned in My Weekly Shopping post last week, I rarely shop at Walmart, but I REALLY like this new program. Have you tried it yet? What do you think? If you haven’t tried it yet, will you? or, what is stopping you?
