Arizona Walmart Ad Matching List ~ 8/27/14 – 9/2/14

Click the green plus signs to generate personalized shopping lists. This list has two parts . . . #1 –  Possible ad matching deals are listed.  The store needs to be a “local competitor,” so not everyone can get all these deals.  Your Walmart may not carry all these products.  Meats are very hard to match since they need to be the exact same packaging, type, etc. #2 — Regular priced deals with coupon match ups are listed at the bottom.  Remember, prices can vary from store to store, but are usually close.

Here’s information about their new program . . . Price Catcher.  It may be worth your time to give it a whirl, but we suggest ad matching first, for now.

Ad Matching Possibilities:

Come back late tonight (Wed.) or tomorrow morning for Pro’s Ranch to be added.  Their ad isn’t online yet and we don’t have access to them Done!  If anyone gets these early and would be willing to scan and send them to us .  . . well, we’d love you!  :)

HUGE thanks to Erika!  She scanned the El Super ad for us — they’re on the list now!!

My Review of Walmart’s New Savings Catcher Program

savings_catcher

We talked to you about Walmart’s new Savings Catcher program here.  I decided to test it out last week.  I went to Walmart on Wednesday and bought something very simple, a box of Ritz crackers.  They can’t mess that up, right?  Here’s my receipt clearly showing the Ritz crackers for $2.50 at the very top.  It even says at the bottom of the receipt to try their new Saving Catcher program.

walmart2

Notice the date on the receipt is August 6th.  Here’s a copy of the Safeway ad starting August 6th.  Safeway is less than 1/4 mile from Walmart here in Prescott Valley.  It clearly shows on the front page that Ritz are $1.88.

photo_2 (2)

It took 72 hours to get this email.  They didn’t find any differences.  Um, really?  walmart

I issued a complaint where I had to state the lower price and where.  Now, it’s just the point.  I want my 62¢.  If I have to do all the work for them, I’d rather just stick to price matching using our super easy price matching list that we make every week.

So, that’s my experience with this new program.  Do with that info what you wish.  I’m going to price match everything that I’m possibly aware of.  Then, I’ll use this program as a back up.

We’ve heard from several people on Facebook who have said it works and have gotten back $2, $7 and even $11.  So, it CAN work.  A lot of people are loving it.

Update:  I heard from someone who works for Walmart on this program.  He gave me the following information:

For clarification on the comparison - Savings Catcher would match the Safeway club
card price (and the advertised loyalty card prices for other stores, too). 

The competitive set for Savings Catcher is pretty comprehensive. For the specific
store you shopped at, it currently includes: Safeway, CVS, Walgreens, Frys, Kmart,
Albertsons, Target, Family Dollar, Kohls, Petsmart, Dollar Tree, Staples, Best Buy,
Petco, Lowe's, Radio Shack, and Bed Bath & Beyond.

Now, I’m in a small town in Prescott Valley, so I was surprised that it covered so many stores.

They also resolved my issue and I got my money.  :)

Walmart Savings Catcher Program (like price matching without having to)

savings_catcherUpdate:  Here are the results from the first test we did, with some feedback in the comments below that post.

Walmart has a new program called Savings Catcher.  This could be great if it works like they say.  I love that you don’t need to take a photo of your receipt, just enter the number at the bottom.  Easy peasy.  You will need to create a Walmart account.  I already had one.  Other than that, the whole process took me about 30 seconds.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Submit your receipt to Savings Catcher in any one of two ways:
    • Enter the receipt number (the TC number) into Savings Catcher at Walmart.com/savingscatcher. You’ll find this number located near the bottom of your printed Walmart store receipt.
    • Or, scan the code at the bottom of your printed store receipt, using the scanner in the Savings Catcher section of the Walmart app.
  2. Savings Catcher compares the prices of the eligible items you bought at Walmart to the advertised prices found in the print and online versions of the weekly ads of top retailers in your area. The ads must be valid at the time you made your Walmart purchase.
  3. If Savings Catcher finds an advertised price that is lower than what you paid for the same exact item at Walmart, you’ll get back the difference on a Walmart Rewards eGift Card.

You can submit up to 7 receipts a week and it takes 2-3 days to receive your credit.

Here’s info on what they match:

Does Savings Catcher compare all items on my receipt?
Savings Catcher applies to many items sold at Walmart stores. This includes:

  • Most groceries such as cereal, rice and most fruits and vegetables except for: store brand items, deli, bakery and weighed items like meat.
  • Consumable items such as paper towels, bleach and trash bags.
  • Health and beauty items such as shampoo and makeup.
  • Select general merchandise items.

Savings Catcher does not currently apply to:

  • Store brands, deli, bakery and weighed items like meat.
  • General merchandise items, (including, but not limited to, electronics, media and gaming, toys, sporting goods, housewares, small appliances, home décor, bedding, books and magazines, apparel and shoes, jewelry, furniture, office supplies and seasonal products).
  • Non-branded items.
  • Tobacco, firearms, gasoline, tires, prescription drugs, optical and photo products and services, or products that require a service agreement such as wireless, automotive or financial products.

Here’s the list of FAQ.

I went today and bought Ritz crackers as they are $2.50 at Walmart, but on sale at Safeway for $1.88.  I’ll update this in 2-3 days and let you know if I got my credit.

Update:  I heard from someone who works for Walmart on this program.  He gave me the following information:

For clarification on the comparison - Savings Catcher would match the Safeway club
card price (and the advertised loyalty card prices for other stores, too). 

The competitive set for Savings Catcher is pretty comprehensive. For the specific
store you shopped at, it currently includes: Safeway, CVS, Walgreens, Frys, Kmart,
Albertsons, Target, Family Dollar, Kohls, Petsmart, Dollar Tree, Staples, Best Buy,
Petco, Lowe's, Radio Shack, and Bed Bath & Beyond.

Now, I’m in a small town in Prescott Valley, so I was surprised that it covered so many stores. Your area may even include more!

(Thanks, Rosie!)

Homeschool Convention Handout ~ Helpful Notes for Everyone!

bargain_believer_logo   So many ways to save!
Super Simple & Beyond . . .

This is the outline I used when I spoke at the homeschohol convention on Saturday, July 12th.  I’ve added links for things I can take you right to, for full information.  It should be helpful for everyone, not just people who attended the convention … hopefully!

You will be amazed how much you can save on everyday essentials and family fun!

I’ve received emails saying people have been able to quit part-time jobs, can donate extra money & other resources, have money for vacations or other fun, etc.  The savings can be BIG!!

Show up

  • Museums (many free days)
  • National Parks (free weekends)
  • Special days (National “whatever” days, store anniversaries, etc.)

Make Shopping List from Mobile Device ~ You Can! (Hopefully!)

mobile_theme

My husband recently informed me that you can make a personalized shopping list from most mobile devices, using the handy dandy green plus signs on Bargain Believer shopping lists.  (I know that some newer devices don’t have problems.)  I told him, “Nope, tried it.”  I discovered there is a slight glitch on my phone, so that’s why I didn’t know.  (I’ll explain below.)  Did you know this!?!  I’m so excited and can’t believe I didn’t know about it.

First of all, if you don’t use the green plus signs, you’re missing out.  The items are listed by price on the sale lists, but when you click on what you want, it will categorize for you — and a whole lot more than that!  You can watch this video for more details or just click around and figure it all out.

You will need to turn off the mobile view.   The green plus signs will appear and you can click away!  A new window will pop up and you’ll have to go back and forth between them.  For Gina (iphone) and my husband (Android) that’s all they had to do.

For me (iphone), nothing appears on the list after clicking the first green plus sign.  It pulls up an empty list.  I have to click back on the store’s deal list and then back to the shopping list that opened.  It magically appears and kicks it in gear for the future green plus signs I click.

This is still not ideal.  We have bigger and better plans and my husband is working on it, but this is better than nothing.  I will be using my mobile sometimes, but will still prefer using my laptop to make lists.  Using a mobile is a slower process since you have to go back and forth between windows.

All mobiles seem to have their own issues and the plus signs weren’t really designed for mobile devices.  So, this may not work for everyone.  But, give it a shot!

Some of you have probably been doing this “forever.”  But, I’m hoping it will be news for some of you — like it was for me!!  :)

Input, Please? ~ Bargain Believer App & Upgrades Coming!

bargain_believer_logo

Long story short . . . My husband and I are going to be kid-less this weekend.  We were going to get away, but decided to stay home and work on Bargain Believer upgrades.  Don’t worry, we’ll throw in a movie or two and dinners out, also.  I decided I’m not cooking and will pretend we’re on vacation!   Do you think dinners out are tax deductible, as a business expense?   :)

What functionality do you want an app for Bargain Believer or the website to have, that it doesn’t already?  And/or, what do you love and not want to lose?  (I doubt there will be much disappearing, but some tweaking.  Additionally, it would help me clarify what is of the most value to you.)

Dream big!  My husband is an amazing programmer and most of the “crazy” ideas I’ve given him, he hasn’t thrown out.  :)  In fact, he’s said, “Well, why not have it do more?”  Amazing stuff . . . but some are way in the future since they’re . .  well, crazy good and crazy time consuming!  :)

The list we have is very long, but I don’t want to be missing anything simple or complex that you might be thinking of.  I won’t respond to each suggestion, but I promise to read them all and consider them.  I hope to add to the list and/or make my vision more clear, knowing that you want what we’ve already thought of.

Please comment below or over on the Bargain Believer Facebook page.

By the way . . . this will take hours and hours and hours, so I can’t promise when there will be any visible changes or anything tangible.  We might roll a few things out slowly — not sure yet!

Thanks so much for your input!!  It will really help us.  ~ Juli

Checkout 51 ~ New Way to Save (similar to ibotta)

Checkout 51 Home

Have you checked out Checkout 51?  It’s a new way to save money, very similar to Ibotta.

Here’s what they say about their program:

Checkout 51 is the easiest way to save money on the brands you love! We’re currently saving over half a million Americans and Canadians money every day and have much larger plans for expansion!

All our members have to do is follow these simple steps:

  1. Browse the offers that are updated every Thursday
  2. Buy the products from any store
  3. Take a photo of your receipt to redeem your deal
  4. Get cash back!

It works on your iPhone, iPad or Android device.  You have to reach $20 in savings to get payout, and they will mail a check to you.  If you are a new member, the first receipt over $20 that you scan in will earn you $2 back!

I love that this works at Albertsons since they always have great milk deals (ibotta doesn’t work there yet).  Milk will be on sale at Albertsons for $1.87 starting tomorrow.  Checkout 51 has an offer for $1 back on a gallon of milk.  That’s like paying on 87¢ after you factor in your future cashback!

If both Checkout 51 and Ibotta have the same offer, let’s say for milk, you can do both offers with the same receipt.  Just remember ibotta doesn’t work at some stores.  So, for the milk, it might be better to price match at Walmart and go from there.

So, go here to sign up and start saving today!

Shopping List Maker — BETTER Than you Think (Unless you already think it’s amazing, of course!!) :)

shopping_list_header

Yes, really … the list making function on Bargain Believer is unlike anything else out there.  You’re going to love it!  I get so many emails from people saying they love it and don’t know what they did without it.  I’m using it, right with you, and totally agree!

Did you know that there’s an super simple way to make your shopping list each week?  I realize that people either don’t know about this or just don’t think it’s wonderful.  It is!  I have heard from quite a few people who started using it later and emailed me to say they can’t believe they waited.  Personally, that’s how I make my own shopping list each week.

If you haven’t been clicking on the green plus signs to make your personalized shopping lists, you’re missing out!  It’s not your typical list maker.  Try it!!  There are many amazing things about it, but one is that it will categorize all your items, to make shopping easier.   Here’s a video explaining it, if you want to learn more.  You’ll probably figure most of it out by just clicking around.  However, many people that watch it tell me they learned something new.  I have to warn you that it’s about 10 min. long, though.  Sorry, I’m a babbler.  For me, that was short and sweet.  :)

Even people who don’t use coupons have told me they like making their shopping list with it.  They can quickly add sale items without having to write everything down.

Oh — If you like to have it on your mobile, email it to yourself.  Or, save it in Google Drive or another web based program.  Sorry, there’s no mobile app yet.
