Walmart Savings Catcher: automatically price match at Walmart and get a gift card for a lower price

Lots of stores offer price protection and price-matching, meaning that if you find a lower price from another local store, they will match it. But you need to do the work. You have to go through your shopping list, match it to circulars, find the lower price, go to that store's customer service and hope they will keep their promise to meet a competing price. Target and Walmart will both price match that way, which potentially saves you a ton of time running around to different stores, but again, it's up to you to do the research to find the better prices.

Walmart now has a new app/program called Savings Catcher that automates the process of their price protection and "low price guarantee." Here's how it works:
  1. After you complete a Walmart shopping trip, enter the TC Number from your Walmart receipt at walmart.com/savingscatcher, or if you're using the smartphone app, scan the barcode. 
  2. Walmart Savings Catcher compares the prices of the items you bought at Walmart to the local advertised prices at the time of your purchase, from both the print and online versions of local weekly retailer ads. 
  3. If Walmart's Savings Catcher finds an advertised price that is lower than what you paid for the same exact item at Walmart, you will recieve a Walmart eGift Card for the difference. (How awesome is that?) 
This program was being beta-tested in several major cities but is now available nationwide. This could potentially revolutionize your price-matching and local shopping. I'm going to do a Walmart shopping haul next week, and will test this program to see if it really works. I've heard raves from friends who say they save a little bit on Savings Catcher each time they shop.
