Love to shop at Walmart? Now you can make sure you are getting the best price! In select areas, Walmart is Beta Testing a fun new program called the Savings Catcher.
The Included Areas:
San Diego, CA
Buy any included item. You’ll then enter your receipt number (TC #) and date found at the bottom of your receipt here.
The Walmart Savings Catcher will then compare the price you paid for the items on your receipt with other stores in your area.
If it finds a lower price, Walmart will give you the price difference on a gift card.
The Savings Catcher Doesn’t Compare:
-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) where there is no actual item price listed
(Example: Peter Pan Peanut Butter, buy one, get one free. Save up to $2.50”)
-Going out of business or closeout prices
(Example: “All mascara, 40% off”)
How To Make It Work For You:
If you price match at the register, this feature really won’t offer any additional savings. If you stop in Walmart without checking Ads and go shopping, that is your time to use the Savings Catcher. You can make sure you didn’t miss any deals.
There are two options for redeeming the savings: You can let it add up or request your e-gift card each time.
