> Here at Walmart, we’ve always been committed to providing you with low prices every day, so you and your family can save money and live better. Savings Catcher, which compares nationally advertised prices through submitted receipts, was designed to catch occasions when a competitor’s price on a particular item was found to be lower than what you paid for it at Walmart.

> What we’ve learned through Savings Catcher is that our efforts to lower prices upfront on thousands of items across our stores is working. Walmart’s prices win most often when you submit your receipts, which tells us that the program’s intent has been met.
>
> That’s why we have decided to discontinue the Savings Catcher receipt submission, effective May 14, 2019. After May 14, you will no longer be able to submit your Walmart Pay eReceipts to Savings Catcher. 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.

  1. Thanks for the heads up, OP. This kinda sucks, but I guess it is following the trend. First they stopped the manual price matching, then they stopped doing it without WalmartPay, and now they’re just ending the receipt thing entirely. They’ll either have to keep/step up their game on the regular low pricing or face some loss of business.

  2. Thanks for the heads up.

    I’m a little relieved, to be honest. It’s been nothing but a hassle ever since I learned how to use it while still getting a printed receipt. I sit there fiddling with my phone for a good 5 minutes while the store clerk eyes me up making sure I’m not doing something sketchy. I hardly ever got cash back anyways, even when I knew things were on sale.

  3. I had a feeling this was coming after their last big change.

    Btw. If you turn off your gift card and debit card in the walmart pay settings and scan it then pay with cash it still gives you the electronic receipt that you can submit to savings catcher.

    1. I had a feeling this was coming too after eliminating scanning receipts. I stopped shopping at Walmart as often around that time and started comparing prices in weekly ads. Ended up saving more money that way than always using Walmart.

    2. Oh yeah! I found that out too, I had an old debit linked, forgot about updating, paid with cash and was able to submit. Too bad we found a workaround and they’re canceling the program.

  4. It’s not because they’re losing money, it’s that Walmart achieved its goal of providing the lowest prices in town. It’s a win-win, right? /s
