So, I’ve talked a bit about the Walmart Savings Catcher program with all of you. I’ll admit that up until now, I’ve not tried it. Not because I didn’t think it would work, but because I just don’t frequent my store very often. I thought that if I am sharing this with all of you, I too should use it — don’t you think?
Just to recap how this works:
You simply shop at Walmart as usual. Then, upload an image of your receipt (within 7 days of shopping) – or type in the information onto the SavingsCatcher website. Walmart’s system searches your local ads and if it finds that Walmart’s price was more than another store’s advertised price, they put that amount into your account. You can then get that amount transferred onto a Walmart eGift card. It really is JUST that simple!
So, today I shopped at my store. I stuck with only name brands (since store brands are not matched). I also made sure I purchased groceries, household items and personal care products. Even though I had 7 days to enter my receipt, I did it right after I got home (so I would not forget). Now, I sit and wait to see how much money I can get back!
Once you’ve done that, you will want to make sure you enter for your chance to win $2,000!!! How? Simply head HERE and enter your email address to share the word about this app and you’ll be entered to win!
As usual with apps, there are some important things you need to know before you use it:
- Your receipt must be uploaded within 7 days of purchase.
- You can upload the receipt information on the website or by taking a photo of your receipt.
- It can take up to 72 hours for the savings to be deposited into your account.
- If you get an error email back, just try again as it means that you did not properly type in the information correctly or your receipt was not able to be read.
It is also very important that you know which items are eligible – as not all items are.
- Groceries such as cereal and rice and most fruits and vegetables except for: private label / store brand items, deli, bakery and weighed meat items.
- Consumable items such as paper towels, bleach and trash bags.
- Health and beauty items such as shampoo and makeup
- Private label / store brand items, deli, bakery and weighed meat items.
- General merchandise items, (including, but not limited to, electronics, media and gaming, toys, housewares, small appliances, office supplies, apparel basics such as socks and undershirts, sporting goods, home décor, bedding, books and magazines, shoes, jewelry, furniture 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.
