Over the years we’ve seen several of Walmart’s famous money-savings programs come to end and soon we will see yet another be gone for good. 

Walmart Savings Catcher program is ending and here’s what you need to know… 

Walmart Savings Catcher was a program designed to help customers submit e-receipts to get reimbursed after purchasing an item at Walmart and then finding it cheaper elsewhere.  It was basically a program to replace their in-store price match program which ended in almost every store back in 2017. But now, that money-saving feature is coming to an end.

When is Savings Catcher going away?

Walmart has announced that as of May 14, 2019, Walmart Savings Catcher is coming to an end. Savings Catcher will be discontinued nationwide. The last day to submit a Walmart Pay eReceipt to Savings Catcher for processing will be May 14, 2019.

Why is Walmart discontinuing Savings Catcher?

We designed Savings Catcher as a means to catch occasions when a competitor’s price on a nationally advertised item was found to be lower than what you paid for it at Walmart. Since the introduction of the program, we’ve worked hard to lower prices on thousands of everyday items across our stores, which has resulted in our prices winning the vast majority of the time when you submit receipts to Savings Catcher.   This tells us that the program’s intent has been met, which was to provide you upfront with every day low prices so that you and your family can save money and live better.
