We can now confirm some EXCITING changes to the Walmart Savings Catcher program that is gonna save you a TON of money!
Walmart Savings Catcher is AWESOME!
First a recap for the uninitiated. Walmart Savings Catcher is a program where you enter your Walmart receipt into the Savings Catcher website and it compares what you bought against the local ads in your area and refunds you the difference. It’s an amazing program but has been in beta until now and only available in 6 select markets. You can see the first time we discussed it here and an interview we did with the launch team here.
Walmart Savings Catcher is Soon NATIONWIDE!
While there have been rumors that it would soon be available nationwide, no one could nail down an exact date that it would actually be available everywhere. Well we can wonder no longer because the team heading up the Savings Catcher program has just confirmed to me that most of the nation has access to it now and will be available absolutely everywhere starting August 4th.
Walmart Savings Catcher is Ad Matching FRESH PRODUCE!
And as exciting as that is, it wasn’t the coolest thing in the email they sent me. Here’s what I think is probably the absolute biggest deal imaginable. Once August 4th get’s here, Walmart will automatically ad match produce through the Savings Catcher program. That is a BIG deal.
Walmart Savings Catcher is Ad Matching GENERAL MERCHANDISE!
It doesn’t even stop there because they are also going to ad match select general merchandise as well. I’m not sure exactly what that means and what exactly will be matched but it’s just another way that Walmart is gong to save you money. UPDATE: Walmart has gotten back to me and said that the general merchandise catagories that are currently included are outdoor living consumables (e.g. fertilizer, bug spray) and stationery (pens, markers, crayons). So if you weren’t paying attention, that means your school supplies are getting automatically matched.
Walmart Savings Catcher is Integrated Into the WALMART APP!
The other thing you need to remember is that it is integrated into the Walmart smartphone app so you no longer have to type in a long string of numbers to enter your receipt. Just zap it, select the date and you are done. (You can see a walkthrough here)
Walmart Savings Catcher is AWESOME! (Did I Say That Already?)
Those of us that were fortunate enough to live in one of the Beta areas can tell you that Savings Catcher is an absolute game changer. It is easy to use and I’ve already accumulated about $10 in rebates that I will probably use around Christmas time.
