I have written quite extensively about Walmart’s automatic price matching service called Savings Catcher. While no other blogger in this space really picked up on it, I thought the program was a pretty good deal, especially considering how much time I was spending in Walmart for other purposes.

When Walmart launched the service last year, they began offering a nice bonus when it was used in conjunction with Bluebird. Not only would they give you the price match difference, but they would double it on your Bluebird transfer. This turned out to generate some amazing deals on products that Walmart tends to have higher prices on.

I had a whopping $2.55 to transfer. Will it double?

The double Buck$ to Bluebird promotion was set to end on February 28, 2015, however I noticed that transfers done in early March were still doubling. Unfortunately it seems that Walmart has fixed this error and transfers are no longer doubling.

Unfortunately the doubling is officially done.

Why This Matters

During some of my previous posts, I listed Savings Catcher as a unique feature of Bluebird when compared to Serve and REDbird. Now that the money no longer doubles, the only thing Bluebird really has going for it is the check writing ability.

Savings Catcher also recently devalued, meaning that produce and meats are no longer matched. I find that Walmart tends to have higher prices on these items so I either have to carry around other store ads to price match at the register (no thanks) or essentially give up any savings since I am paying higher prices on those items.


I have recently shifted a lot of my time and effort to Target and thus wasn’t shopping at Walmart a whole lot anymore. There is something about weekly (or more frequent) visits to Walmart that tends to weigh on someone after awhile.

With that said, I am still glad that Savings Catcher exists. At least if I have to pick up a couple of items at Walmart, I have the possibility of savings some money with a limited amount of effort. Walmart has never been my primary grocery store and probably never will be, but the Savings Catcher program does offer a lot of value, just not as much as it used to.
