Walmart has been testing out their new “Savings Catcher“, which essentially gives you a rebate in the form of a Walmart gift card, if the things you buy are cheaper at a different store. It’s currently available in seven cities – Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Huntsville, Lexington, Minneapolis and San Diego – with potentially more to come, if the test is successful.

Savings Catcher compares advertised prices so you can save time and money. Just enter your receipt number and if they find a lower advertised price, Walmart will give you the difference.

How it works….

Enter the receipt number and date found at the bottom of your receipt into the highlighted fields.

They compare the price you paid for each item at Walmart with advertised prices from top stores in your area.

If they find that a top competitor in your area has a lower advertised price on an item you purchased, Walmart will give you a Walmart Rewards eGift card for the difference.

There is no minimum purchase requirement. Just enter the TC Number on your receipt to get started. You can go to on your smartphone to access Savings Catcher.

One Catch to this new Savings Catcher:

Savings Catcher does not compare the following types of offers: •Items that require a separate purchase to get the advertised price (example: “Buy oatmeal to get cereal for $1.”) •Items with no actual price that require a purchase to get a free product. (example: “Buy both oatmeal & cereal to get milk for free.”) •Items that require a purchase to get a gift card (example: “Buy a 12 pack of paper towels to get a $5 gift card.”) •Buy one get one free (BOGO) where there is no actual item price listed (example: Peter Pan Peanut Butter, buy one, get one free. Save up to $2.50”) •Going out of business or closeout prices •Percentage off (example: “All mascara, 40% off”)
