*UPDATE* As the program rolls out nationwide this week, it looks like they’ve added to the eligible items. I just got this email:
Walmart’s new program, Savings Catcher, is now available in all areas. All you have to do is enter your receipt data, and the program will scan local competitor’s ads and refund any price differences on a Walmart gift card.
Entering your receipt is easy. You can enter your receipt number online, scan the barcode via the Savings Catcher section of the Walmart app, or register your phone number within the app and enter it upon checkout for automatic entering.
The inclusion list is vague, as it doesn’t state exactly which stores and ads are included. There are several excluded items, such as store brands, meat, produce, and many general merchandise items. A screen shot from the FAQ is attached below.
I don’t shop at Walmart often, but I did make a stop this weekend. I’ve entered my receipt and am currently awaiting verification. I’m curious to see how this pans out! Have you used the program?
