Accessing and Using the Walmart Savings Catcher
The Walmart Savings Catcher can be used on any desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone with internet access via an internet browser or directly through the Walmart mobile app. Walmart is not responsible for any losses associated with a user’s inability to access the internet and/or the Walmart Savings Catcher.
In order to use the Walmart Savings Catcher, you must have a valid receipt from a participating Walmart store. Such purchase must have been made within seven (7) days of submitting the receipt through the Walmart Savings Catcher. Receipts submitted through the Walmart Savings Catcher more than seven (7) days after purchase will not be accepted. There is no minimum purchase required in order to use the Walmart Savings Catcher.
You may submit a maximum of seven (7) receipts in one week through the Walmart Savings Catcher. Additional receipts will not be accepted.
You may only submit receipts through the Walmart Savings Catcher for purchases that you have made. Each receipt may only be submitted one time through the Walmart Savings Catcher. Receipts submitted through the Walmart Savings Catcher for purchases made by another individual will not be accepted. Failure to abide by this term may result in rewards being revoked and prohibition of future use of the Walmart Savings Catcher.
You must submit a valid Walmart receipt within seven calendar days of purchase. You can submit your receipt by entering the TC#, scanning the barcode (or QR code) (with the bar code scanner in the Walmart mobile app) or submitting your e-receipt directly through the Walmart mobile app. Both the TC# and barcode (or QR code) are located near the bottom of your Walmart receipt. Walmart is not responsible for the inability to use the Walmart Savings Catcher due to any incorrect or missing TC#, or any lost or damaged receipts.
Submission of a receipt through Savings Catcher will automatically enroll you in InstaWatch. InstaWatch allows you to stream digital eligible versions of physical DVDs and BluRay disc(s) purchased from participating Walmart stores or purchased at Walmart.com. Information about InstaWatch is available at www.Vudu.com.
Comparison of Prices to Local Competitors
Walmart uses an independent third party to collect print and digital advertisements published by other top retailers in your geographic area. While the advertised prices are believed to be accurate, Walmart makes no representations or warranties as to the truth or accuracy of the prices actually charged by other retailers.
The Walmart Savings Catcher compares prices based on print and digital advertisements published by other retailers in the same geographic area for identical items at the time the items were purchased at participating Walmart stores, subject to the restrictions below.
Items Eligible for Walmart Savings Catcher
Many grocery, consumable and health and wellness items (must be identical and match UPC to UPC) purchased at participating Walmart stores are eligible for comparison using the Walmart Savings Catcher, except for: produce, items sold in the bakery department, fresh or variable weight meat, items sold in the deli department, and seafood.
General merchandise is not eligible, including but not limited to: outdoor living consumables, office supplies, apparel, DVD’s, electronics, CD and gaming media, toys, housewares, small appliances, sporting goods, home décor, bedding, books and magazines, shoes, jewelry, furniture, seasonal products.
In addition, the following items are not eligible for comparison using the Walmart Savings Catcher: 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 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.
The Walmart Savings Catcher compares identical items based on an item’s Universal Product Code (UPC). In addition, 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.
Prices to be Compared Against
The Walmart Savings Catcher compares prices for identical items against print and digital ads from Local Competitor Retailers. “Local Competitor Retailers” means the top retail stores based on sales in the competitive trade area of the Walmart store where the transaction took place. The competitive trade area is determined by The Nielsen Company based on a number of factors, including the number of stores and people in the area. Local Competitor Retailers may change from time to time without notice to the user.
The Walmart Savings Catcher compares print and online versions of print ads of Local Competitor Retailers that were valid on the day and time of the transaction for which the TC# was entered. The Walmart Savings Catcher compares ads that feature the same item at a specified price that was valid on the day and time the same item was purchased at a participating Walmart store. This includes prices based on preferred shopping card memberships. The Walmart Savings Catcher does not compare the following types of offers:
Items that require a separate purchase to get the ad 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 free product (example: "Buy both [items A & B] to get [item C] for free")
Items that require a purchase to get a gift card (example: "Buy [item A] to get a $B gift card")
Buy one, get one free (BOGO) ads with no actual price given
Prices inclusive of rebates
Going out of business or closeout prices
Percentage off (example: "All mascara, 40% off")
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 $12.00)
The Walmart Savings Catcher compares prices irrespective of any coupons applied. If a Local Competitor Retailer’s price is lower on an identical product, you will receive that difference even if you ended up paying less due to the use of a coupon.
Receiving Savings Catcher Rewards
If the Walmart Savings Catcher identifies purchased items that were advertised at a lower price at a Local Competitor Retailer, the difference between the advertised price and the purchase price will be credited to the user’s account (“Savings Catcher Reward Dollars”) after all eligible items in a valid receipt have been checked against Local Competitor Retailer ads using the Walmart Savings Catcher. In some states, sales tax on the Savings Catcher Reward Dollars will also be credited to the user’s account.
Amounts credited through the Walmart Savings Catcher will remain in your account until you elect to redeem the accrued Savings Catcher Reward Dollars. You may elect to redeem your Savings Catcher Reward Dollars for (i) a Walmart Rewards eGift Card (“Walmart Rewards eGift Card”) or (ii) credits to the Walmart Buck$ balance of your Bluebird Account, as more fully described below.
