Walmart Eliminating Savings Catcher Program
If you haven't used Walmart's Savings Catcher up until now, you've missed out on some cashola and now you'll never get your chance.
Walmart's Savings Catcher was a program that was executed via the Walmart app. You'd get your receipt, scan it, and then if Walmart found a lower advertised price you'd receive the difference in a gift card. Late last year, in order to submit your receipt you had to pay thru Walmart pay. That was fine for me because I had a digital copy of all my receipts.
But, the company announced it was doing away with Savings Catcher altogether.
Here at Walmart, we've always been committed to providing you with low prices every day, so you and your family can save money and live better. Savings Catcher, which compares nationally advertised prices through submitted receipts, was designed to catch occasions when a competitor's price on a particular item was found to be lower than what you paid for it at Walmart.
What we've learned through Savings Catcher is that our efforts to lower prices upfront on thousands of items across our stores is working. Walmart's prices win most often when you submit your receipts, which tells us that the program's intent has been met.
That's why we have decided to discontinue the Savings Catcher receipt submission, effective May 14, 2019. After May 14, you will no longer be able to submit your Walmart Pay eReceipts to Savings Catcher. But don't worry, the money you have on your Savings Catcher eGift Card will remain yours to spend until you're ready to use it.
We want to thank you for your loyalty and your participation in the program. We'll continue to work hard to offer you features and services that deliver on our promise to save you time and money—whether you're shopping in our stores or online at Walmart.com.

So, that's that. Now, you'll have to go back to the old primitive days when you have to look at your own ads and drive around town to get the best deal. I'm super bummed about this but they do have the Free Grocery Pick Up, so I'll be alright.
