The Walmart Savings Catcher app by Walmart is another way that I make and save extra cash and, of course, it's FREE! It's available for iPhone and Android or use it online.
In my area, Walmart is one of the cheapest places to shop and now they have a program called the Savings Catcher where if they find a lower price they give you the difference. For example, if you buy a box of cereal at Walmart for $3.50 and a local store sold the cereal for $2.50 the Savings Catcher program will give you $1.00 back.
After you make your purchase, open the Walmart app and go to the Savings Catcher tab and scan the code on your receipt.
If you don't have a smartphone, that's okay.
Click here and get a Walmart Savings Catcher account. Then every time you purchase anything at Walmart, you'll go to the Savings Catcher website and type in your receipt number and the purchase date. After the receipt is processed, Walmart will email you an update letting you know if they found a cheaper price and how much you will be rewarded.
How can I spend my rewards?
You have two ways to spend the money you've received. You can have the money added to a Bluebird card or, my favorite, get an eGift Card.
I like to let the rewards build up until I have a larger amount--like over $100 and then I use it on my next shopping trip. It feels good to go grocery shopping and not have to spend any cash.
What else can the app do?
The Walmart app is helpful in other ways besides using the Walmart Savings Catcher. It can help you plan your shopping trip by creating and saving lists. You can also view the weekly ad and do price checks.
I personally like to use the price check when I'm printing coupons. All you do is type in the item you want to check and it will show you the price and if it's available. This has saved me a lot of money.
How has it saved me money?
Well, If I normally buy a different brand, but I have a coupon offer for another brand I always check the price difference between the two brands and see if the coupon is going to actually save money. If I can't save money or if it's only a few cents, I don't print the coupon.
Plus, I plan my grocery list from what's on sale and what coupons I have. I try to match my coupons to sales. This way, I save even more.
