Have You Used The Walmart Savings Catcher App?

Walmart Savings Catcher
Just about everyone has a Walmart or a Walmart Supercenter nearby. In fact, 8 percent of every dollar spent in America is spent at Walmart. The store is known for having great deals and saving people quite a lot of money, however, many Walmart shoppers don’t know they could be saving even more cash with the Walmart Savings Catcher app.

The Walmart Savings Catcher App

You know that QR code at the bottom of each of your Walmart receipts? Well, you can scan that using the Walmart Savings Catcher app and save yourself a ton of money! The app takes the information from your receipt and finds the same items in your area at different stores. If other stores are offering the item for less, you receive the difference on your Walmart account. After you’ve scanned the QR code it may take up to 72 hours for your savings to be posted to your account but you’ll be able to use the cash you saved during your next trip to Walmart (or stash it for a larger Walmart purchase).

The Walmart Savings Catcher app is a free app available on iPhone and Android. Once you’ve downloaded it you can scan the QR code on your receipt and begin saving money.

How to Use Walmart Savings Catcher

The app is pretty user-friendly (from my personal experience). Simply go to Google Play or the App Store and download the app and begin scanning your receipts.

The QR code that you’ll be scanning is located at the bottom of your Walmart receipt. It is easiest to do this right after you’ve been shopping but you can scan receipts up to a week after you’ve made your purchases. For example, if you made your purchase on February 1 you can scan the QR code in the Walmart Savings Catcher app up until February 8.

Once you’ve gotten your receipts scanned into the app, Walmart Savings Catcher does the rest. You’ll receive a notification when you receive cash from the Savings Catcher and you can have it added to an eGift card to use in-store or online.

More Information About Savings Catcher

Now that you’re caught up on what the Walmart Savings Catcher app does and how you use it, there are a few other things people commonly ask about the app. According to the Walmart Savings Catcher website, these are some of the most frequently asked questions:

It will also honor any sales prices from other top retail stores (no locally-owned stores though).

Customer Service for the Walmart Savings Catcher App

Although I’ve not had any issues with the Walmart Savings Catcher app, some people have had some trouble. There have been a number of reviews citing issues with the app. Worst of all, it seems if you need to troubleshoot the app, customer service seems to be scarce. Here are a few tips on how to troubleshoot the app:

  • If the app is down you can access your personal Savings Catcher account on the website. If you need to upload a receipt you will have to manually enter the code.
  • Delete the app and re-download (sometimes you have to do this to get it to work).
  • Give it some time. Servers can get crowded. Wait a little while and the issue may resolve itself.
  • If you’d like to speak to a customer service rep about the app, you can call the customer service line at 866-224-1663. or start a chat online.

Even with its hiccups the Walmart Savings Catcher app is totally worth it. Give it a try! You’ll likely recognize savings the first time you try it.

Ways to Save Money on Teen Car Insurance

7979444605_e1a36803ce_zWhen teens start driving, one place you really feel it is in your pocket. Not because of the gas money they will no doubt ask you for but because of the expensive rates, you’ll be paying for car insurance. Luckily, there are ways to keep costs manageable by making some smart choices.

Reasons Insurance Is So High for Teens

Insurance rates are based on risk. The higher risk a situation is, the more money will be charged for insurance. Teens are seen as high-risk drivers because the accident rates for teens are much higher than for older drivers. Insurance companies assume the worst. They assume they will need to pay out on a claim for your teen, so they charge them higher insurance rates. So, anything you can do to help prove your teen is less of a risk can be helpful.

Who is the Highest Paid Football Player?

Highest paid football player
It’s that time of the year again! People will likely only be talking about football until Sunday and then be talking about how happy/mad they are about the outcome of the Super Bowl.

What many of us don’t think about is that while we are watching our favorite players, like Antonio Brown, are getting paid to be out there on the field. Of course, it is something that they love to do but football players make a ton of money (salaries starting at $420,000 per year – and that is for rookies)!

So, who is the highest paid football player and how much do they make?

Football Player Salaries

As previously stated, the starting salary for a rookie in the NFL is $420,000. More experienced players or players that are in high demand are paid even more. At the high end some players have been said to have an annual salary as high as $50 million.

That’s right, $50 million. So, which players are making that much? Who is the highest paid football player?

Who is the Highest Paid Football Player?

The highest paid football player changes from year-to-year depending on the prior season and various other factors. If a player has been a valuable asset to the team they may receive a raise or, if they haven’t been doing great, they may be traded and receive a pay cut.

In 2016, the highest paid football player was the Carolina Panthers’ Cam Newton. Newton pulled in an astounding $53.1 million during the year. He wasn’t the only football player pulling in some serious cash though.

Top Paid Football Players

Among the highest paid football players are a lot of familiar names like Eli Manning and Julio Jones. How much did they make last year? Here are some of the top paid football players from 2016:

  • Eli Manning ($45 million)
  • Joe Flacco ($44.5 million)
  • Tom Brady ($44.1 million)
  • Russell Wilson ($41.8 million)
  • Philip Rivers ($38 million)
  • Marcell Dareus ($35.2 million)
  • Peyton Manning ($34.2 million)
  • A.J. Green ($33.3 million)
  • Drew Brees ($31 million)
  • Olivier Vernon ($29 million)

And Let’s Not Forget Bonuses

Other names on the list include Carolina’s Luke Kuechly, Atlanta’s Julio Jones and Washington’s Trent Williams. Each of them made more than $25 million in 2016 (and that is before bonuses).

Even football players get bonuses when they perform well. The salaries listed above were pre-playoff season earnings. If the team made it to playoffs each player received $24,000 per game during the playoffs.

Additionally, players get more money if the team goes to the Super Bowl. The losing team from the Super Bowl gets paid $53,000 per player while the winning team walks away with $103,000 per player (and let’s not forget those pricey Super Bowl rings).

There’s no doubt that we cherish and even idolize many of the big names in sports. A tremendous amount of stress is put on these players to perform well and stay out of trouble, making them worth millions of dollars a year.

Do you agree with the salaries for football players? Who did you think would be the highest paid football player?
