Last week I told you about Walmart’s new Savings Catcher. The simple process of scanning your receipt into the Walmart app, and the app doing the searching for you. No need to search through dozens of ads to find sales on the items you want, and trying to compare them to Walmart’s everyday low prices.
I made a trip this past weekend to pick up things for dinner, and the oh-so-dreaded school week ahead. Quick and easy breakfast items, stuff for packing lunches, and after school snacks. So without checking the ads, we just headed to Walmart to get our shopping done.
We stocked up on a lot of items that we needed for the next week or so, and I even let the kids pick a couple of items I normally wouldn’t. When I got home it was pretty simple to just open the Walmart app, and open the Savings Catcher tab so I could scan my receipt. After I scanned it, it started to scan over 40 local ads to see if any items that I had purchased were on sale and cheaper at any local store – grocery stores, convenient stores, even dollar stores!
The app informed me that it would alert me when the scans were complete – it did take a few days, but they were able to scan all the ads along with my big purchase (nearly $200) and save me $1.41! I love that it not only told me how much much I saved on each item, but also what store had it on sale. Obviously Walmart’s every day low prices saved me a lot of time that I would of spent trying to go through dozens of ads and compare.
The app gives you an option of cashing in and getting your eGift Card now, or saving them up and cashing out all together. Since we frequent Walmart quite often I decided I would save them up and cash them out at the end of the month. It does take a day or two for the eGift card to get to your e-mail so just keep an eye out.
I haven’t tried it yet, but I think I need to go download it. Like NOW! Thanks for the heads up!
I actually did get a new savings catcher receipt the other day!!! Thanks for reminding me to get the app!!
I haven’t tired this yet, but will be, soon. Thanks for sharing. I’m always looking for new ways to save money.
I have been using the savings catcher. Im not sure its worth the effort, to date they’ve caught less than a buck. Dad would say every penny counts, but I figure my time is worth more than that 🙂 Hopefully other people find better savings.
I love this app! It’s amazing how it takes the leg work out of having to price match. I’m using it today when I go grocery shopping.
You’ve explained the new Walmart Savings Catcher so well! Thanks for making it more clear to me. I’ll be sure to start using it.
I love this! I have used it a few times and I already have $10 in my account. I live in Florida so they BOGO price match stuff – so it’s so cheap. Ive almost converted to doing all my shopping at Walmart now!
That app is awesome! Wal Mart already has great prices. This just sweetens the deal!
I’m going to try this tonight actually! I just did a big grocery haul!
I love it when I can save time and money. Thank you for sharing this.

Walmart is a great place to save. They always have those roll backs.

I love the Walmart Savings Catcher. I shop at Walmart all the time anyway, this is just another way they’re saving me money.
I have not tried the Walmart App yet. I will be downloading it if it is available in Canada. I do use similar apps and love them. Thanks for sharing.
I have sent in 2 receipts and only 1 had about $4 savings given back. I’ll take it. I am a bit of a drive from a walmart so I don’t go often. But its nice to know they have this program.
I just heard about this app the other day. It sounds amazing!
Awesome app! I love that they’re doing this.
