Savings Catcher Price Match Program

As I posted recently, there is a new Walmart Savings Catcher price match program that just rolled out to Walmart shoppers throughout the nation.  For all the Walmart shoppers out there, this has the potential to save you a bunch of money! 

This looks like a great new savings option for those of you who use Walmart for a lot of your shopping. If you shop at other stores like Kroger and Food Lion, who don't double coupons, you may find this price match program allows you to cut out multiple trips to various stores, while still getting the best area sale prices. Even if you already price match at the register (which you can still continue to do), this can save you money by catching any prices you didn't realize were lower at another store.

How It Works:

If a local competitor offers a lower advertised price on an item you purchased at Walmart, the Savings Catcher program allows you to get back the difference on a Walmart Rewards eGift Card. You basically get a rebate for the price match.

To get the price match rebate, you must submit your receipt to the Savings Catcher.  There are 3 ways to submit receipts:

1. Enter the receipt number at   You will need to sign in using your Walmart account information or sign up for a account. The receipt number (TC number) is located near the bottom of your Walmart store receipt.

2. Scan the code at the bottom of your store receipt with the scanner found in the Savings Catcher section of the Walmart app.

3. Register your phone number through the Walmart app or debit card reader located at in-store checkout. Every time you check out at a Walmart store, enter your phone number and Walmart will submit your receipt to Savings Catcher for you.

Once you submit your receipt, Savings Catcher compares the prices of the products you bought at Walmart to the sale prices found in the competitor ads for your area. The ads must be valid at the time you made your Walmart purchase.

If Savings Catcher finds an advertised lower price, you’ll get back the difference on a Walmart Rewards eGift Card! 

You will get your price match results within 72 hours of submitting your receipt.  They will send the results via email or through the Walmart app.

Additional Details:

* You can submit up to 7 receipts per week to Savings Catcher.

* You can save up to $599.99 per year with this program.

* You can use coupons at the register and still get the price match.

* The ads must be valid at the time you made your Walmart purchase and include a specific item price.

* Only applies to in-store purchases.

* Now supported in the Walmart app for both iPhone and Android. Just click on the Savings Catcher button from the home screen to submit receipts or see your results.


Items included in this program:

- Most groceries such as cereal, rice and most fruits and vegetables (but not weighed items like meat)

- Cleaning and paper products like paper towels, bleach and trash bags.

- Health and beauty items.

- Select general merchandise items. The number of general merchandise items compared will continue to expand over the coming months.



There are a number of items that are not included in the Savings Catcher program including items that require a separate purchase to get the advertised price, BOGO sales where no price is listed, percent off prices (like 30% off an item), going out of business or closeout prices, online purchases,

Also excluded are store brands, deli, bakery and weighed items like meat, electronics, media and gaming, toys, sporting goods, housewares, small appliances, home décor, bedding, books and magazines, apparel and shoes, jewelry, furniture, office supplies and seasonal products, 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.

    englisherry - so glad to hear you are able to save some money with the new savings catcher! Every bit helps!

    I've used the savings catcher a handful of times and it's nice to get that little bonus back. Last one was a tombstone pizza, paid 3.97, it matched food lions price of 2.50, so 1.47 back. Yay! Extra nice that that we don't have to DO anything besides scan the receipt. I plan to save it up and pay for (at least) a big Thanksgiving turkey. :)

    GOPACK - the $1.99 price for chix breasts at HT is their everyday price - don't even have to have a VIC card.

    As for "Wally World" - the best one I've found is on Hwy 70 in Clayton. That store is cleaner and better stocked than any other Walmart I've found in Raleigh - by FAR. I've been so disappointed by the empty shelves and attitudes by the cashiers in the Raleigh Walmarts, I've pretty much given up. I've found Target has pretty decent prices with cleaner stores and better attitudes by their employees.

    Anita, the Garner Walmart is the worst!! They always have two lanes open and multiple employees hanging around not doing anything. I avoid that location if I can. The $1.99/lb for chicken breasts is a good deal, but keep in mind Harris Teeter has that price with your VIC card (not sure when it ends but it's been going on for a long time).

    I like the price compare option at Wal-Mart but I am constantly fighting with cashiers and CSM's everytime I go in. First of all, their website says local competitor sales price will be matched. Well they don't consider the SuperCompare Foods or Sav-A-Lot here in Fayetteville but will do Aldi. They are local competitors and they won't match those competitors ads. I even have their ads with me which is not required. Then when they can't find their ad bundles they ask if I have the ad with me. I usually do but once again their policy states you don't have to have the ad. I think they need to define the competitors they will match and develop a better customer service attitude. If HT offered price match I would never step foot into Wal-Mart. I am very aggrevated with Wallyworld.

    I stopped in at Walmart in Garner on 401S thinking I could just run in and pick something up for a bbq I was headed to. WRONG. 2 lanes open! 2! And it was back to school weekend. Plus the produce section had swarms of fruit flies. I went to HT in Fuquay instead.
