Move Over Price Match Guarantees: Meet Savings Catcher

April 21, 2014 |

We can probably all remember a shopping experience where we drove all over town, popping into multiple stores just to make sure we got the best price on an item. Now, all it takes at many large retailers is a trip over to the customer service counter with the competitor’s flyer in your hand to get a price matched or the store itself already has posted the competitor’s flyer right on their shelf beside the item to show you they want to make sure they are giving you the best price around.

But, what if I told you there could now be something even better than all those things. Walmart’s new Savings Catcher is a tool that means comparison shopping just got easier. And while it has just been launched in select markets, its huge potential could mean that cities other than Atlanta, Charlotte, Lexington, Dallas, Huntsville, San Diego and Minneapolis, could have the option of having their savings caught too.
