Say it Isn’t so Walmart! ‘Savings Catcher’ Ends in May?
Walmart announced they will be ending their price matching program 'Savings Catcher' on May 14. What?
If you're like me you love a bargain. I've never been good at using coupons but when Walmart started the Saving Catcher, the price match tool on their App, it was easy by scanning a receipt within a week of purchase. The app tool would make a price scan of other retailers and if it found it lower somewhere Walmart would do a price match and credit you the difference. I kept using it even when they changed the rules and made it more difficult to use because you had to open the app and scan a bar code at the register. And now it will end soon.
It's true, I was at Walmart on Arkansas Blvd this weekend and one of the cashiers broke the bad news to me. When I got home I looked online and it seems I'm not the only one sad and mad to see the fun little app tool go away.
According to Business Insider :
Walmart said it's ending the program because it already offers the lowest prices in most cases.
Hmmm, seems I was getting money back money on quite a few of my purchases.
Below is what is stated on the Walmart app:
Important News: Savings Catcher will be discontinued on May 14. The last day to submit a Walmart Pay eReceipt to Savings Catcher for processing will be May 14, 2019. 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. Thanks for your participation.
Why do I have a feeling they were actually giving away way more money than they intended? Did you use the feature very often?
