Does the Walmart Savings Catcher really work? Check out my shopping trip and see if I saved!

Walmart Savings Catcher


A few weeks ago I wrote about the new Walmart Savings Catcher.  But the real question is – does it really work? Well, I decided to put it to the test.  I headed to Walmart with a shopping list a mile long of groceries, back to school supplies, and few other necessary basics the kids still need for school.

This isn’t even everything I bought! In fact, my receipt had 24 items on it.  I wanted to make sure I hit all my bases. I bought produce, toilet paper, mac and cheese, under shirts, coffee, cereal – the basics.

Walmart receipts now print out with QR codes on the very bottom which you scan right on the Walmart app on your phone.

This submits your receipt to the Walmart Savings Catcher and you can see it right on the app.  Then you just sit and wait.  And wait….  It told me it could take up to three days to find prices and it took exactly that long for me to get the next notification.

It worked! The Walmart Savings Catcher found quite a few items on sale – enough to save me almost $4 and 5% of my bill.  Nevada doesn’t have tax on food, so there was no refund in taxes, but I thought that was a nice addition to the program to pay back any sales tax you over paid.

You add the money on to an eGift Card.  I missed the part that says it can take up to 24 hours and went back to Walmart the same day my savings came in only to discover my eGift Card wasn’t ready yet. So wait a day or two.

So does it work? Yes! I had an idea of what was on sale (like the peaches and cereal) and was happy that the Walmart Savings Catcher caught those.  I’m not a big couponer or price matcher so I love that I can submit my Walmart receipts quickly and easily and hope it catches some savings for me.
