Savings Catcher- it works!!!
By the good RN
I have been using savings catcher for a year now, been working to catch Walmart NOT giving me deals that I know other stores offer. Nope! Walmart ALWAYS give me those deals, they never ever miss! One time I thought they did but I found out I was wrong. The other store had gone up on their price and it was I that was not aware... If you shop at Walmart you’d better download the Walmart app, use savings catcher, and stop playing around! I’ve already saved $65 so far without even trying, just buying my same ordinary groceries that I normally buy, not doing ANYTHING different. I don’t have time for coupons and price checking and stuff. Wayyy too busy for that! So, after I check out I get into my car, open the app real quick, scan my receipt real quick, then go home. Two days later I check the app and see the savings building up. Just that easy! Once I get to $100 I’ll redeem it for something. And it’s fun, the kids love watching it build up, too!.. You all better get this little extra money, we all deserve a break so why not? 😉
Gonna stick with Target
As soon as I get my 2 items that I have coming that won’t come on time I will be deleting the app and never going to Walmart or using this service again. So canceled the items I had in order and went to the target app and bought them there. Within 2 hours they get shipped and didn’t pay anything extra shipping.
So just checked on the status of an order that told me it was shipped and I was told I would get it 4/27 end of day and now fedex is telling me 5/2 end of day. It’s just sitting at fedex. I understand all the craziness that’s going on right now but don’t tell me I’m going to get something a date and then it’s 5 days later. Will be canceling all the orders that haven’t shipped today and placing them with target.
Came to this app cause some of the stuff I wanted to get off Target you had to pay so much to get it but I have placed a few orders and still waiting for stuff to ship and I have about 3 days before I have to get it. Was going to cancel my orders but you get apps like this where you can’t do it all in the app it makes you go elsewhere to get some stuff done. Let me cancel an order in the app not have to go to the website and sign in and do it there. The link in the emails to track an order you would think would take you to the app but no it takes you to the website and again you have to sign in. I don’t always have my passwords next to me and don’t use the same one for every account I have. Just like the company the app is below par.
App is great but needs some improvements
I think the app is great, but as with all things, there’s always room for improvement. It would be really nice if you could look at the grocery pickup substitutions and opt out of whichever ones you don’t like before you even get to the store. Since I can’t do that beforehand, it forces you to talk face-to-face to the worker to identify what you don’t want, then they have to spend their time on their scanner and in your trunk digging through your groceries to try to find what you don’t want. It wastes everyone’s time, plus this is just further exposure during an activity that’s supposed to be darn near contactless. This applies to the site as well, both of these things could be better. Also, sometimes when I search for something, it’ll bring up only certain options but when I select one and then look at “similar items,” it’ll show me more options of what I actually want. For example, if I look for “Kiwi protector spray” to find Kiwi protector spray for a tent, the single thing that comes up is Kiwi Camp Dry Performance Fabric Protector Spray (which is not exactly what I want). But then when I select it and look in “similar items,” the thing I actually want (Kiwi Camp Dry Heavy Duty Water Repellant) suddenly shows up... maybe my keywords aren’t the best, but I feel like it’s not too far off base, especially if I put Kiwi and spray.
Don’t fall for “2 day shipping” or savings catcher
Loved this app and Walmart. But a couple of the main things I liked have actually changed for the worse.
First is the savings catcher. I’ve been using it for years. Matches the sale prices at other stores and puts them on a digital Walmart card for you. You used to be able to scan your receipt. But now they will only do it if you used Walmart pay and paid through the app. And Walmart pay has its own issues. First it’s slow and customers behind me in line tend to think I’m just playing on my phone. Even some of the cashiers don’t seem to understand. And sometimes I want cash back which doesn’t seem to be an option on Walmart pay.
Next is their 2 day shipping. Things used to show up in the promised 2 days. But the last two things I’ve ordered have taken 4 days on one and 2 weeks on another. They are only counting actual transit time. NOT processing time! It’s not 2 day until Fed Ex actually receives it from Walmart. And both my items were sold shipped by Walmart. And both said 2 day shipping. And both promised a delivery date in 2 days before I hit the pay button. Then magically the date changes to four days or beyond. Keep that in mind for gifts. If it’s gonna take a week or so that’s fine. Just be upfront about it.
I hate this app! The Grocery app was so much more reliable! Ever since grocery pickup order placing was added to this app, it’s been so stressful. It constantly deletes items in my cart!! They’re in stock so that’s not the problem. It just decides when I click on the cart to submit my order, let’s delete everything. Or it’ll leave a few things and I have to backtrack and try to remember what is missing which is the worst when I had 50 items. I’ll try to workaround the issue and checkout with the $35 minimum and later add more items to the order. Even that backfired on me just now. I reviewed my updated order and half my items are missing again. Some weeks, I don’t notice until after I picked up the order that several items never made it through. I update the app constantly thinking this glitch will get corrected and it never does.
A new issue I have is my favorites aren’t fully loading. Since it was recently changed in the app, now only half my list loads. Then it brings me back to the top. I try to then filter it by category to see the items that don’t load and even that isn’t helpful. The filter options don’t let you scroll down to see all the categories. So annoying.
Bring back the separate Grocery app please!!! Why take away something that was super helpful and quick?! I dread ordering groceries 1-2x a week since the app went away. I’m sure I’m not alone.
Grocery app frustrating
The app is almost perfect. The only negative I find (and it’s a big one to me) is when you are shopping the groceries, if you click on a product, you can’t go back to where you were. Example: I’m looking at dog food. I click the one I want to look at or select bag size. I do what I need to do, then “x” out of product but instead of going back to where I was in the dog food section, it goes all the way back to the main pet page. It’s really annoying, especially when you have been doing a good amount of scrolling through things. You then have to work your way back to the right page and scroll all the way though again. Please please please fix this. I rarely shop the app anymore because of how frustrating it is.
Also, and I know it’s not so much an app problem, but the few times I have placed an order for grocery to pick up at the store, there have a been a ton of things listed out of stock when I went to pick up. Each time this happened I actually ran into the store after to find just about everything listed out of stock sitting on the shelves. I don’t know if it’s lazy workers or what but I don’t know how it’s possible that about 10 things were out of stock but were all sitting on the shelves immediately after.

I loved the app in its early days. I liked that I could look up what I needed and see exactly where it was, and I didn’t have to track down an employee who may or may not be familiar with the thing I was looking for. I also liked that I could check before I even went to the store to see if they carried something. That helped my avoid more than one wasted trip.
Now I find it increasingly inaccurate. The location of many things isn’t listed, and for those that are it’s wrong more often than not. Granted, my store has just undergone renovation, so I do understand that some things are in a different place than they were before and that it takes time to update that in the system. My biggest issue though is with the accuracy of the listings for what’s in the store and what’s not. I don’t trust it at all now. I can be standing in front of an item, looking at it on the shelf, and the app says it’s not available in store.
Not being able to list exactly where something is soon after a renovation is one thing. But I see no reason why they can’t accurately state what they’ve got in the store. This is a huge frustration, especially when everybody’s telling you not to go out unless necessary and to spend as little time out as possible.
Where are the receipts??!!
This was once a good app. But now there is no way to get receipts from in-store purchases! Even after paying for the items through the app, there was a time when we could click on the receipt and choose which view we wanted. NOW, after paying, a quick flash and there is NOTHING!! If I want to return an item, there is NO WAY I can return it, because the iPhone pay does not give you a paper receipt, and it doesn’t give you an electronic receipt, either!! For all I know, you guys are ripping me off all my purchases and I have no way to prove it!! What are we supposed to show the theft-prevention person at the exit, who pretends to look at our purchases to make sure we didn’t shoplift? They want to see a receipt, but I don’t have any! This has been going on for several weeks now! I keep seeing updates, and I keep updating, but there isn’t anything to show for our purchases!! I was using this app to help me keep track of expired food, because it showed when I bought them. I was able to use it as price comparison at other stores. I can’t find any receipts from purchases! So anything I bought for work from Walmart is impossible to claim on my taxes!
What are you devs doing? Please bring back our receipts!! And what happened to the middle services? Now it’s just a bunch of departments!
Not happy with this setup. Please fix it so we can use it.
THIS NEW APP IS CRAP!
I wouldn’t had, even, given it a one-star, if I had the choice!
The app, at least, the groceries part, does not allow changes to your shopping list ... when I try to check out, the check out throws out all the changes that was made, of groceries that I decided that I no longer want, and groceries that I have added, and attempts to charge for everything that was, previously, in the shopping cart, including the groceries that I no longer want! The newly added groceries doesn’t appear in the check out, at all! I tried several times ... same results! Customer service aren’t any help, either ... they have a non-chalant, and stupid, attitude. Not recognizing that it’s an inconvenience to you, the customer ... instead, they thank you for bringing it to their attention, and that they will submit your feedback! Feedback!?!? Who’s leaving feedback ... I was complaining! Because I NEED FOOD, NOW, why I’m trying to order! I don’t care about their stupid feedback, or survey ... and I wasn’t calling to do one! My recommendation is to go elsewhere!
P.S. Also, Walmart got greedy, and is honing in on the suffering, etc., of COVID-19 and wants to charge AN EXTRA $10, to deliver your groceries in 2 hours! I haven’t any more loyalty to Walmart, anymore! This is how they chose to treat their customers ... including the customers that were loyal shoppers BEFORE the Pandemic! PLEASE, SHARE, AND PASS THE WORD!
I love Walmart... But
I absolutely love Walmart, I really do feel like they go beyond for their customers as a company especially in these hard times. I especially appreciate the drive-up grocery pick up and I SUPER appreciate when they added ebt as an optional payment method.
The only problem is when using the ebt card on the app I get so many error messages saying “sorry something went wrong, try later”. When the grocery section was on its own app (orange one) this was never a problem. It also seemed to be fixed a few weeks ago because that error message stopped popping up and payment would go through first try. But all of a sudden again it’s not working. Before it worked but after trying 10+ times. Unfortunately starting yesterday it has not worked at all for me. Tried so many times. Decided to go to store but it was extremely packed and I have 3 small children so decided not to go in. Was going to do frys but they have no open slots for tomorrow. Tried Walmart again and still not working.
Please fix! This momma really needs it. A suggestion is have the option to pay at the store with ebt card like before if having technical problems in app.
