Walmart launched a new tool to help shoppers get the best price.
It’s called Savings Catcher.
The process includes three steps.
- Step 1: Enter the receipt number and date found at the bottom of your receipt into the highlighted fields.
- Step 2: Walmart compares the price you paid for each item at Walmart with advertised prices from select competitors in the market (list at bottom of this post). The service does not include online retailers, and this step may take up to 72-hours to process.
- Step 3: If Walmart finds a lower advertised price on an item, Walmart generates a gift card for the difference.
The service is available in seven test cities: Atlanta, Charlotte, Lexington, Dallas, Huntsville, San Diego, and Minneapolis.
Walmart did not state if there is a timeline for expansion to other markets at this time.
