If you shop at Walmart and don't know about Savings Catcher...this tip is for you! If you already use Savings Catcher I would love to know what you think about it by leaving me a comment below. If you don't, keep reading.
In March of last year, one of the friendly cashiers at Walmart told me about Savings Catcher. It is a part of the Walmart app, which can be downloaded for free on iTunes or Google Play. Click here for the app page on iTunes. Click here for the app page on Google Play.
This app is for mobile devices. If you don't have a smartphone, tablet, or other mobile device, or just don't want to add another app to your device, then go to the Savings Catcher page on the Walmart website and create an account.
For mobile users: Once you have the app loaded, you are ready to go. After making a purchase at Walmart you open the app, select Savings Catcher, then click on 'Scan a Receipt' to simply scan the QR code located at the bottom of your receipt to load your purchase information to the app. If you are using your computer you enter your receipt's TC# and date of purchase which are also located at the bottom of your receipt. *Important thing to note: You must scan your receipts promptly after each purchase. Walmart only accept receipts that are less than 7 days old.
After your receipt info has been submitted, Savings Catcher will take the next few days to scan advertised deals in your local area to compare the prices you paid with advertised prices. If cheaper prices are found, Walmart graciously gives you back the difference in "Reward Dollars". Walmart will send you an email once their comparison search is complete, usually within 3-4 days, to let you know whether any lower prices are found. If lower prices are found, the email will also tell you how much you get back in "Reward Dollars". The app will also shows this amount in your "Available Reward Dollars". You can save the dollars to accumulate them for a specific future purchase or you can load the money to a Walmart eGift Card each time you have a refund and use the money the next time you shop.
Here is "How It Works" in a nutshell. This is a screenshot of the 'More Info & Help' page of the app.
To date I have received $26.25 Reward Dollars back from my purchases. This amount might have actually been higher if I had been more diligent with scanning my receipts when I first started using the app. Yes, $26.25 is not a large amount of money, but it's sure better than $0.
The Walmart app is free and it really does not take any time at all to scan your receipt. The Walmart app does the work. Sometimes the app doesn't like the QR code, but the app gives the option to key in your receipt's TC# and date of purchase.. This doesn't take very long either.
Can I ask you something? Did you find this tip helpful? I would love if you left me a comment below to let me know either way. Thanks!
Good day and Happy Saving!
