Especially with the target breach a few years ago. What you is to stop this again?

You can scan the receipts to get IW, but they just don't give money back on movies. Unless you meant it's not even giving you the IW either.

The way I read this news is that they will no longer allow you to scan receipts so unless they make a new was for you to get IW into the system, you will have to use Walmart Pay to get it.

I personally like that I can scan receipts into the app so I don't have to look back for them when I update my finances later or if I have to do a return I have the app to use instead of finding the receipt. Not sure what I'll do, but I think Walmart pushing Walmart Pay onto consumers is bad business practice and for that reason I will probably refuse to do it.

If you have a walmart com account, then you have walmart pay almost setup. The only difference is that you add a pin number to use when what to use app to check in store.

Unless you paid with cash, WM knows what CC or DC was used with that receipt. Thus, another approach would be if that CC or DC isn't associated with your account then it wouldn't be considered a valid receipt.

Sad news to read.

No more paper receipt submissions, no more Savings Catcher for me.

Iíll use the balance Iíve accumulated since last November ($19.48) towards movies on Thanksgiving in-store and be done with it. It was a good ride, Walmart, but you screwed the pooch this time.

This is a major bummer for me. I regularly grocery shop at Wal-mart thanks to this program. In total I've accumulated 295.65 in Savings catcher rewards over the last few years and at the moment have a $81.65 balance. Interestingly enough, despite having used the program for several years now I have yet to receive any type of notice that the program is changing. I imagine I'll cash out everything to a gift card in mid October as I really don't want to use Wal-mart pay. Like others, I prefer to not store my CC info in any more places than necessary.

Hopefully you kept the email with the e gift card number/pin or wrote it down, because, with the way the program is now, it's already been added to your e gift card. A few months back they changed the program to automatically add anything the savings feature found to automatically be added to your e-gc, and remove the ability to get your egift card info so you would be forced to use Walmart pay.

I don't like how companies keep changing things and taking away features that people like then act like they're doing us a favor. I think I only have about 80 cents in savings catcher now so it's not like I'll be losing much anyway.

Yep ..Done with savings Catcher for me then..I dont spend a ton on groceries there but i would accumulate a few dollars here or there and order something on site for store pick up later..but when i am in store freaking people are already slow in the too few lanes they have open..why slow this process even more..and why when using self check do i want to waste more time dealing with scanning something instead of waiting for at home..when I can do it on my wifi as well.They limit how many receipts per week you can scan anyway so isnt like you can go nuts on scanning a lot of them.

The response I got when I asked if this would mean I would have to create an e-receipt for Instawatch. (No idea if this is a helpful answer or not)

Theoretically, you can still get IW in store but only if you use Walmart Pay (with credit/debit cards or gift cards linked to your account), but if you pay with cash, you won't be able to scan your paper receipt which in turn means no IW.

There's a loophole (for now, anyway) to get your receipts onto Walmart Pay without a linked card.

Leave a $0 balance giftcard attached to Walmart Pay
Scan Walmart Pay at the register, it will be declined
Pay with whatever payment method at the register

You'll get a paper receipt and a Walmart Pay eReceipt that you can submit to Savings Catcher.

Instawatch has its own scanner in the Walmart App.

I don't understand the InstaWatch hysteria.

What is stopping Disney from pulling all Fox content from Instawatch after the purchase of Fox is finalized? Disney has Movies Anywhere, which I'm not sure is compatible with Vudu and now they are starting their own streaming service as well. Why would they want Walmart to have any of their content available in a way that promotes a different service over their own?

What brings this up is a recent story about how a user in Canada had titles pulled from his Itunes account.


*I also wouldn't be surprised to see Walmart pulling the Instawatch scanner before long. If you seem to enjoy something at Walmart, they will find a way to take it away while making you think it's really for your benefit. Price Matching, Savings Catcher, etc.

You're a little late to the party, that itunes story is old news (besides they weren't really pulled, he switched countries and the specific versions he had of the movies weren't in the new country).

Besides, Vudu is part of MA and compatible with it. Whatever you get on Vudu that isn't a TV show or Paramount/Lionsgate/one of the other opt-outs goes straight to your MA account too if you linked them.

Because the iOS app doesn't have that - IW is tied to Savings Catcher there.

Has anyone been able to get new savings to be added to their gift card? For over a month I haven’t had my savings added to my account balance. I have close to ten dollars that hasn’t been added, according to my receipts updates. Hoping to use them since I won’t be able to use Savings Catcher after 10/29, the stores around me will no longer participate in the savings catcher program.

I guess I'm out since I don't own a credit card and pay 100% with either Cash or Personal Check.
