WalMart: Kroger SavingsCatcher Matchup! (Including Moneymaker Cereal!)

NEVER MISS A HOT DEAL! SUBSCRIBE TO OUR DAILY EMAIL NEWSLETTER!

ctcThis is the last SavingsCatcher matchup I plan on doing for Kroger.  Next week, it will be questionable if you would be able to get results in time to double when you send to BlueBird.  I’ve really been enjoying these, but unless we get a surprise change I know my time writing SavingsCatcher matchups will be coming to the end after Sunday’s new ads.  You’ll see a lot of repeats from last week’s matchups, because there are a lot of repeats in this week’s Kroger ad.

For those of you unaware of the Walmart Savings Catcher program: You can enter your receipt numbers at the Savings Catcher web site and they will look for sales on the items you bought at competing stores and reimburse you for the differencebetween the sales priceand the price you paid at Walmart.

Even better, through 2/28/15, you can transfer your Walmart Savings Catcher rebate dollars to an AMEX Bluebird account and AMEX will double them up to a total of $599.99! (AMEX Bluebird is free and doesn’t require credit; it’s a reloadable card.)

  1. I follow you guys everyday. But i was wondering with the recent changes for saving catcher, can we still used the buy six get for this price on the Kroger sales ad. Thank you

    • Steve Pinski says:

      They should work. Monica shopped the Kroger Mega deals at Walmart, but she hasn’t posted yet because she doesn’t have Savings Catcher results yet.

      • Ok thank you. Been doing great with the ads, but the email from saving catcher threw me off. Just wasnt sure. Again thanks

    • I can verify this to be so. I have done deals after changes on 2/15 and got results today and I did not get 6 items. Kroger is my MAIN matchup store with absence of Drug Stores and so far they have some awesome matchups…

      • Thank you

        • I bought quite a few things at Walmart on (2-15-15) from the Kroger ad dated 2/11-2/17 (more kraft cheese included). Savings catcher matched ALL items to Kroger except for the cheese that they matched to Meijer for 2.25. I REALLY do not understand that as they were all in the same ad???? I received the credit the evening of the 17th, contacted them via the app. stating I found it at a lower price but still have not heard back. That sucks because I cannot transfer funds to Bluebird until I hear back from them.

          Anyway here are my finds from MEIJER (Still waiting for confirmation)

          • Here is what I received Friday night from Savings Catcher for the above:

            Keep in mind these items were ALL in the Meijer ad Buy 8 Save 8.00 good thru 2/21

            Maxwell house matched @ Meijer for 1.99, bought 4, got them for .40 each
            Planters Cocktail Peanuts were matched to Kroger for 2.99 (Meijer was 1.99 after 1.00 off)
            Kraft Parm. Cheese was matched to Dollar General for 3.00 (Meijer was 2.79 after 1.00 off)
            Lysol Wipes WAS matched @ Meijer, but to the price before the 1.00 off. So instead of them matching it to the .89, they matched it to 1.89.

            This was my LAST and FINAL Walmart Savings Catcher trip. I have had nothing but trouble with the match ups. They match it to WHAT they want to match it to as they will have to pay out TOO MUCH. But the thing I think they are not realizing, is that the matching money they pay out WILL be used at THEIR store. So why not keep your customers happy, match ALL of the items to the ACTUAL LOWEST price to keep them coming back. Instead they do it their way, matching it to what they want to match it to, or in some cases NOT matching it at all, which in turn leads to some pissed off people who have nothing good to say about them. They have a BAD REPUTATION as it is, you would think they would try to improve it. Since they stopped matching Drug stores, I have a feeling they are going to STOP matching to the MEGA events and the Buy ? Save ? ads as well. Who knows. I returned ALL of the items except for the coffee yesterday afternoon and they gave the Matched price, which is fine with me.
            FAREWELL WALMART….

  2. The Chicken of the sea tuna in my ad says 3 for $1 making them .33 instead of .50. Not sure if yours is only 2 for $1 or if you mistyped above .. but that DEFINITELY makes for a money maker without coupons in my ad if Walmart price is consistent at .88.

  3. Silly question, but. Do we have to spend our Bluebird monies by the 28th or lose the “free” half?

  4. according to GA ad, these deals ended the 17th. I did these deals on the 17th, but have not received news from Savings Catcher yet either. Hope they went through. Want to get a few more deals in before the 28th. Wish GA’s rules were the same as FL. Used to shop at Publix because of the bogo’s. You’ve had sweet deals this past couple of weeks. God bless you and thanks for your postings.

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Thanks and good luck!

    • The original ad ended on the 17th, however the MEGA SALES are going on this week in the GA Ad as well…just be careful as the items pictured or noted in the ad…SOME ARE DIFFERENT.. in other words…the Purex from last week’s matchup ended on the 17th in the ad, however is still going on at Kroger… but because its not in the ad, SavingsCatcher doesnt know… In addition, the Chips Ahoy cookies and Kraft cheese and all things noted above are showing in the ad that started on 2/18 as well…which were also in last week’s.. those you can still do. In other words, take a look at the ad that starts 2/18 and you will notice many items carried over to this week as well because MEGA SALE is still going on.

      In other news… i had a buddy that did the Purex and it did not match up with Kroger while the cheese did. I told him about my long process of trying to get corrections, and that i figured it be best to return it, however, i figure it odd that they didnt match another item in the same store. He even got the color (scent) shown in the ad. They also did not matchup the Cheerios for him either which ARE shown in the ad (this is all last week’s things” and he did on the 17th. So just a heads up in case someone else is missing matches.

      • OMG, I am having the SAME issues. Purchased MANY items on 2/15 to match up to the Kroger ad dated 2/11/15-2/17-15. They matched all of the items to Kroger except for the Kraft cheese, which they matched to the new Meijer ad starting 2/15. Kroger was 1.99 and Meijer was 2.25. Contacted them via app that I found it at a lower price but still have not heard anything yet. THAT IS JUST BAD BUSINESS. In the commercials they rave that if they find the it at a LOWER price they will refund the difference, but they seem to only find the lowest price they are willing to give you. If I do not get the difference for the Kraft cheese, I WILL take it back as the one store I go to will take back ANYTHING, but it sucks if you buy perishables as they say they are not refundable. I did the Purex a few weeks ago to match the Walgreens ad and I DID get it while others did not????? I am only going to be doing SavingsCatcher until the end of the month as that is when Bluebird stops doubling.
        FYI–The items they DID NOT match that I purchased with my Bluebird card, I returned and the credit went back to my AMEX account that I can use at ANY store!!!!!

        • Just spoke to Christie @ Walmart Savings Catcher, ( 1-866-244-1663) told her my issue with the cheese, she told me I did not buy Kraft shredded cheese, so I asked her to pull up the ad and read what she has and it is as follows:

          Kraft cheese
          Sargento shredded cheese.

          The photo’s she see’s are the Kraft Shredded Mozzarella and the Sargento off the block shredded 4 cheese Mexican. I told her what my ad shows and she is still insisting I should have purchased the shredded cheese to get the Kroger price match. All said and done, I spent 2 hours trying to get where I ended up. This is the Email Address to send YOUR ad if you item was NOT PRICE MATCHED CORRECTLY.= Savcatch@walmart.com.
          Just sent my ad, so we will see what happens. Gas is way too expensive to keep having to return things that are NOT price matched. It defeats the purpose of saving money. Plus if I purchased these items at Kroger, I would get gas points.

          • While on the Phone with the 3rd person I talked to, realizing now how they do the Price matching, I asked her about the items that I purchased that have not been confirmed yet, She DID confirm the prices from the Meijer ad, but KEPT insisting that I had to wait until my receipt was processed. So, based on the many people who have purchased items at Walmart and based on a specific ad, there is no LOGIC. My next door neighbor and I went to Walmart together on 2/15/15, we both bought 4 Kraft Block Extra Sharp Chedder (pictured in the ad) She was credited based on the Kroger Ad 1.99 ea. and I was credited based on the Meijer ad 2.25 ea. I have gone though the blog comments and have compiled a list of items that were approved for some and denied for others to give to my friend who works for our local news person who has a segment that rescues consumers from bad deals. Watch out Walmart

  5. Our Kroger ad has 10 items for $10. Do you know if they will match just 1 for $1?

  6. I FINALLY received matches from Thursday 2-19-15. Call me disappointed; first for having to wait 5 days for reply and for some items not matching.

    I received a match for Bugles 10/10 at Kroger and 1.98 at Walmart.

    Also matched – Mega Sale items –
    Cinnamon Toast Crunch which were 2.82 at my Walmart and 1.49 at Kroger
    Minute Maid Orange Juice 2.88 WM and 1.99 at Kroger

    I did NOT get matches for Hot Pockets 1.98 WM – Kroger .99 (In current Ad) and Dial Hand Soap refill 3.97 WM – 2.99 at Kroger (I will return because it is cheaper in general at Target).

    I am disappointed for the Hot Pockets as I have received matches for previous purchases. I did change the flavor since my daughter likes 5 cheese so that may be the issue. My history with Kroger has been if an item is on sale – ALL flavors are on sale.

    I still have 3 receipts waiting to be matched, I purchased a mix of 5 more Hot Pockets since on my initial trip they did not have 5 cheese flavor in the store so we’ll see if they match. If the snow lifts, I will see if I can return or at least get a price match. (huge sigh…..)

    I will consider continuing SC for the 2 local chains stores that are way out of my way and I get good returns, but for the most part I’ll go back to my local Kroger/Publix which are closer than Walmart.
