Savings Catcher

UnknownIf you shop at Wal-Mart, no more scanning a million sales papers to see who has the lowest prices. Nope! Wal-Mart has a  new program called Savings Catcher. Simply shop and buy what you normally would and scan your receipt afterwards. Wal-Mart searches local stores (Kroger, Publix, Walgreens, Target, etc.) for lower prices and refunds you the difference via a gift card. The next time you shop, show them your “rewards” and receive it as a credit on your bill. It’s that simple. So far the program is only available in limited markets (Atlanta, Charlotte, Lexington, Dallas, Huntsville, San Diego and Minneapolis). I tried it a few weeks ago and saved $0.50 on a $50 purchase.

Few facts: in-store purchases only, up to 7 receipts per week, 72-hour turnaround on price matches, does not apply on store brand items, produce, deli, bakery and weighed items like meat.
