Wal-Mart’s Clever Scheme: Savings Catcher

Wal-Mart has a thing called ‘savings catcher’.  When you buy stuff you can scan a receipt with their app and supposedly it will compare what you’ve paid with the same items for sale elsewhere in the area.  If you could have paid less somewhere else, they give you the difference.

It’s actually pretty cool until you spend a lot of money (over $400 in our case) and then, mysteriously, the number on the receipt is declared invalid and you’re notified of that invalidity later.  Or, in our case, exactly 8 days later… which is just in time to make such notification utterly meaningless…


Well played, Wal-Mart.  Well played.
