Even if you do not use coupons to cut your weekly household and grocery expense, you may want to consider using Wal-Mart’s Savings Catcher program because you can get store credit with just a few minutes of your time.
How it Works
When you receive your receipt at Wal-Mart you have two options for using Savings Catcher. The easiest is with a smartphone (once you download the app). You simply scan in the QR Code (small square at bottom of the receipt) and the app will begin the 3-4 day process of checking your receipt against local competitor’s ads. In my case, it is 37-38 ads.
If you do not have a smartphone, or prefer to do it online, go to Savings Catcher and enter the receipt number from the bottom of your receipt.
What You Get
Once Savings Catcher is finished checking all the local competitor ads, you will be advised whether or not any lower deals were found. In the first 10 receipts I submitted, all but three found lower prices. You can let the savings accumulate — or move them over to a eGift card. Once you are ready to cash in the eGift card, you can either print it out and use it at your local Wal-Mart — or use it for online purchases.
Either way, it’s money back in your pocket.
