Before you head to the store, check out these sites to see if there are any deals you can’t live without.

Install the SavingsCatcher App

Many Walmart locations are getting rid of their price matching program. If your local store no longer has the program, don’t worry. There is another way to make sure you’re getting the best possible deal.

Make sure to download the Walmart SavingsCatcher app on your smartphone. If you don’t have a smartphone, you can also use SavingsCatcher on a web browser.

You will first need to complete the simple sign up process. Then, just scan your receipt every time you shop at Walmart. You can only upload a receipt within seven days of your shopping trip, so don’t forget! After you scan your receipt, the app will search for lower local prices, and credit any savings found to your account. You can cash in those savings for a gift card whenever you’re ready.

Learn Where the to Find the Best Deals

Walmart marks down goods they are trying to move out of stores. The key to finding marked-down items is knowing where to look.

Here are a few potential places for great deals:

  • On aisle endcaps
  • On rolling shelves in the larger aisles
  • Behind lock and key in glass displays
  • Mixed in with regularly marked goods on shelves or racks
  • On separate shelves with yellow balloons or clearance signs
  • In large bins by the dressing rooms

Spend some time walking around your local store and take note of where they keep a majority of the marked-down items. The next time you go shopping, you can head directly towards the savings.

Check for Clearance Items Online

You don’t have to actually go to Walmart to score big. The store website has a section dedicated to clearance items. Once you’re on the site, you can easily sort or search to see what marked-down items you’d like to purchase.

Since Walmart is trying to better compete with Amazon, they have a good shipping program. Currently, you can get free 2-Day shipping on any order over $35.

Walmart also ships items to your local store for free. If the item you ordered is in stock at the store, you’ll even be able to pick it up that same day.
