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.

    While the distinction may be small, it is a no credit check prepaid debit card.

    I really view it, for my purposes as just an alternative to getting the refunds on a walmart gift card, which of course is a prepaid debit card. . .

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for your post. I did see the offer posted about getting the new AMEX and double rewards. If you are in the market for a new credit card and you shop at Walmart a lot, it could be a good deal for you. I don't usually post about credit card offers, which is why I didn't post it. Thanks again!

    Last week when I logged into my "savings catcher dashboard" I noted an option
    I did not recall seeing before. It is the American Express Bluebird card. And
    for redemptions through 2/28/2015 Walmart will double your rebate amount.

    I spent a couple hours looking at all the fine print on the bluebird card, and it
    seems quite safe to get, with no fees, no credit check (so hopefully no hard
    check at the credit agencies)

    So I applied for one, and plan to only use it as a Walmart card to get double refund

    I was wondering if you had looked at this, and had an opinion.
