Savings Catcher FAQs
Please refer to the Terms of Use for important additional details.
What is Savings Catcher?

At Walmart, we have low prices every day on everything. If a local competitor offers a lower advertised price on an eligible item you purchased at a Walmart store, we have a program called Savings Catcher at participating stores that allows you to get back the difference on a Savings Catcher eGift Card. To confirm your store’s participation, please call 1-800-WALMART. Amounts credited to these eGift Cards can be used to make purchases in-store at Walmart via Walmart Pay, or online at  Walmart.com. For further details and examples of eligible items, please see the Matching section below.

IN PUERTO RICO, the same Savings Catcher functionalities will apply to participating Amigo supermarkets.


Here’s how it works:
  1. Make a purchase at a participating Walmart store using Walmart Pay.
  2. Submit your eReceipt to Savings Catcher within 7 calendar days, either from your Walmart Pay confirmation page or from your Savings Catcher dashboard.
  3. Savings Catcher compares the prices of the eligible items you bought at Walmart to the advertised prices found in the print and online versions of the weekly ads of top retailers in your area. The ads must be valid at the time you made your Walmart purchase.
  4. If Savings Catcher finds an advertised price that is lower than what you paid for the same exact item at Walmart, we will notify you within about a week, and you’ll get back the difference on a Savings Catcher eGift Card.
  5. You may use your Savings Catcher eGift Card to make purchases in-store at Walmart via Walmart Pay or online at Walmart.com.

Can I submit old receipts?

You may only submit receipts 7 calendar days old or less, including the date of purchase. For example, if you shopped on Tuesday, you have until the following Monday to submit your receipt.

How many receipts can I submit?

You can submit up to 7 receipts per week to Savings Catcher.

What happens if I submit my receipt to Savings Catcher after I’ve returned an item?

If you submit your receipt to Savings Catcher after returning an item, the returned item is not eligible for Savings Catcher. Please note that returning items could increase the time that it takes Savings Catcher to process your receipt.

What happens if I return an item after receiving Savings Catcher Rewards for that item?

If you return an item after receiving Savings Catcher Rewards for that item, your refund will be equal to the dollar amount you paid originally, minus the Savings Catcher Rewards given for the item.

Example: If you paid $10.00 for an item and then Savings Catcher gave you $1.00 back in Rewards, your item refund would be $9.00. This refund will be offered in the same tender type (cash, credit, etc.) that you used to pay for that item.

Please note that returning items before your Savings Catcher Rewards are processed could increase the time that it takes Savings Catcher to process your receipt.

Why is my receipt invalid?

There are a few reasons why you might be receiving an "invalid" message when you try to enter your receipt:

  • You may have already reached the limit of 7 receipts for the week
  • You may have already reached the limit of $599.99 in rewards for the year
Are receipts from Walmart stores in other countries valid, such as Canada and Mexico?

Only receipts from participating Walmart stores in the United States, including Puerto Rico, are covered. To confirm your store’s participation, please call 1-800-WALMART.

Does Savings Catcher compare all items on my receipt?

Savings Catcher applies to many items sold at Walmart stores. Savings Catcher compares items purchased at Walmart with identical items on promotion from local competitors based on an item’s Universal Product Code (UPC). These items must be identical in size, weight, quantity, brand, flavor, color, etc. – even if they share the same UPC – in order to be compared. 

Savings Catcher currently applies to:

  • Groceries, such as pantry staples including cereal, chips, rice, yogurt, milk, and frozen foods (must be identical and match UPC to UPC)
  • Consumable items such as paper towels, bleach, and trash bags
  • Health and beauty items such as shampoo and makeup

Savings Catcher currently does NOT apply to:

  • Any food, consumables, or health & wellness items that do not meet the eligibility criteria above
  • Produce
  • Items sold in the Bakery department
  • Fresh or variable weight meat
  • Items sold in the Deli department
  • Seafood
  • General merchandise items including, but not limited to: outdoor living consumables (such as such as fertilizer and bug spray), office supplies, apparel, DVDs, electronics, CD and gaming media, toys, housewares, small appliances, sporting goods, home décor, bedding, books and magazines, shoes, jewelry, furniture and seasonal products
  • Non-branded items
  • Tobacco, alcohol, firearms, gasoline, tires, prescription drugs, optical and photo products and services, or products that require a service agreement such as wireless, automotive or financial products
  • Items purchased and paid for with WIC benefits
What types of promotions does Savings Catcher include?

Savings Catcher compares eligible items on your receipt to items found in the print and digital weekly ads of top retailers in your area. The ads must be valid at the time you made your Walmart purchase and include a specific item price.

Savings Catcher will match competitor BOGO deals in all 50 states and Puerto Rico as long as a price is listed. In addition, in the state of FLORIDA ONLY for Publix and Winn Dixie stores, the Buy One Get One free (BOGO) ad can state "Save up to" with a clearly defined item size to be eligible. 

FLORIDA only example: "Peter Pan Peanut Butter, buy one, get one free. Save up to $3.50." will be compared as follows: Competitor BOGO "Save up to $3.50" means that each Peter Pan Peanut Butter costs $1.75 ($3.50 / 2 = $1.75). If the Walmart price for one Peter Pan Peanut Butter is $3.00, you would then get back $1.25 on each Peter Pan Peanut Butter you buy at Walmart ($3.00 - $1.75 = $1.25).

What types of promotions does Savings Catcher not include?

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" or "Cereal for $0.50 with $25 purchase in store.")
  • 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) deals where no item price is listed (example: Peter Pan Peanut Butter, buy one, get one free. Save up to $2.50.") are not included except as noted above.
  • Going out of business or closeout prices.
  • Percentage off (example: "All mascara, 40% off.)
  • Items placed on layaway are not eligible for Savings Catcher.
  • Deals that are listed as available with a clearly stated manufacturer’s coupon, "on pack coupon," or "coupon commonly found in Sunday newspaper" are not eligible for Savings Catcher.
  • Deals that require a competitor coupon that imposes a quantity limit (example: Pepsi 2 Liter $0.29 Limit 1 with competitor coupon)
  • Deals that require a case purchase to receive a special price (example: Campbell’s soup for $0.50 each when you buy a case of 24 for $12.00)
  • Deals that require an AARP, AAA or other discount cards not distributed by a retailer
How do you find all the prices advertised by other stores?

We work with an independent third party to collect weekly print and online circulars from top competitive stores in your area. Savings Catcher compares this data to the prices of the items you bought at Walmart.

Which retailers’ advertised prices do you compare to Walmart’s prices?

We compare advertised prices from the top retailers located near the Walmart store where you shopped.

Why are some items on my receipt not matched?

This is due to one or more of the following reasons:

  • The items you purchased at Walmart were not advertised by a top competitor in your area at the time of your purchase
  • The type of promotion in the competitor circular is not for an item eligible within the Savings Catcher program
  • The items you purchased at Walmart were not identical to the advertised items of a competitor. (Size, quantity, brand, flavor, color, etc.)

If you have questions about your receipt, please contact us using the "Contact Us" button in the Savings Catcher section on Walmart.com and the "Give Feedback" option in the main menu on the Walmart app.

When will I get my results back?

Savings Catcher aims to send results within about a week of receipt submission. As soon as your results are ready, we will let you know by email or through the Walmart app.

If, for some reason, your results are not ready within about a week, please feel free to contact us using the "Give Feedback" option in the main menu on the Walmart app or calling us at 1800 WALMART.

Why are my Savings Catcher results not instantaneous?

After you scan your store receipt, it typically takes about a week for Savings Catcher to notify you with your results. During that time, Savings Catcher works with a third party to find and review nearby top retailers' weekly ads, both the print and online versions. These promotions may change frequently, so the monitoring of ads nationwide is occurring constantly. Savings Catcher then looks for ads that match the eligible items on your receipt and compares these advertised prices against the prices you paid at Walmart.

Gathering and reviewing this amount of data takes some time, so we appreciate your patience.

What if I disagree with the results or wish to contact you?

We do our best to match items from other stores’ ads with accuracy. If you have any questions, or think we missed something, please let us know within 7 calendar days of receiving your results email by calling us at 1-800-WALMART.

Is there a limit to the Savings Catcher Rewards that I can earn?
  • With Savings Catcher, you can earn a maximum of $599.99 in rewards per calendar year. Once you reach the $599.99 limit, your receipts will no longer be matched for comparison, and you will not receive any additional rewards for the calendar year.
    • Note that after reaching the limit, receipts entered via the Walmart app will appear as either "No Match" or "Not eligible."
  • Starting on January 1 of the following calendar year, you will then be able to submit new receipts to collect rewards again.
  • The maximum amount of rewards dollars that may be on your Savings Catcher eGift Card at any time is $1,000.

Yes, the only way to submit receipts to Savings Catcher is by using Walmart Pay within the Walmart app. The Walmart app is available for iPhones and Android smartphones.

No. Savings Catcher applies to your in-store purchases only.

Does my Savings Catcher eGift Card expire?

No, your eGift Card does not have an expiration date.

What happens if I use coupons?

No problem. You can still use Savings Catcher. If you use a coupon, Savings Catcher will compare the original Walmart price of the item, before the coupon was applied, to other stores’ advertised prices for the same item.

For example: You bought cookies at Walmart. The shelf price was $3 and you used a coupon for $0.25 off, so you paid $2.75. If Savings Catcher finds that a competitor advertised those same cookies for $2.00, Savings Catcher will still credit you $1.00, even though you paid only $2.75 at Walmart.

How secure is Walmart.com and your Walmart app?
