I have something that you may want to potentially check into... I read about it after a friend told me about it. It's called Walmart's Savings Catcher. You can read the article here: http://bigstory.ap.org/
article/wal-marts-new-tool- gives-competitors-prices# overlay-context=article/e- trades-talking-baby-goes-bye- bye. Here is a brief overview:
Savings Catcher compares prices of every item on the receipt to a database of advertised prices of competitors that's provided by an undisclosed third party. The tool doesn't apply to general merchandise like clothing or electronic gadgets.
Any difference in prices is put on a Wal-Mart online gift card. Customers can accumulate savings or use the credit immediately. They can redeem in stores or online by printing out the gift card receipt.
I did attempt to do this and found out that it is not provided in our area yet. If you get a chance, email corporate and let them know we would like this in our area! The more people that do it the more likely it will happen. :)
I think that is it for now. Have a great week!
OH! One more thing. Just FYI- Melissa included some store brand items on the comp list because SOME stores will still comp those. Ottawa Walmart will NOT, however! If you want to see if a different store does, you might call customer service before you get all the way to the checkout line! :)
