Use Coupon Apps: Garlic Shrimp Spaghetti Squash

Clipping coupons is a great way to save money on your grocery list every week. But in order for it to save you enough money, you must dedicated a lot of time and energy to searching for coupons. In reality, we don’t have the amount of time it takes to be successful at couponing, and that’s okay. Lucky for us, there is an array of coupon apps that can do the hard work for us.

Having the ability to scan an item in the grocery store and search for coupons as you are placing the item in your cart is a treat. But what if the hard couponing work was after you left the store? That’s right, you can save money on your grocery trip by the click of a button after you have already swiped your credit card. And that’s why this week’s Penny-Pinching tip is using Walmart’s Savings Catcher.

Penny-Pinching Tip: Use Walmart’s Savings Catcher

Most of you are probably aware of Walmart’s Price Match Guarantee: if you find a lower advertised price, Walmart will match it in store. But, sometimes we forget to search for ads before our shopping trip, or even while we are standing in line to check out. Because of this, Walmart has created the Savings Catcher feature in their mobile app that allows you to scan your receipt after you have checked out. The app will then search for lower prices on your items, and if it finds some, it will reimburse you the difference – amazing! The money you are reimbursed can be saved up on the app and whenever you are ready to be refunded, Walmart will send you a gift card of the reimbursed amount. Now, you can always ensure you are receiving the lowest price on your groceries.

For this week’s healthy recipe, I bought my inexpensive ingredients at Walmart and scanned my receipt on Savings Catcher immediately after. And, I can proudly say that I am now up to $21.13 waiting for me in the app.

  1. Spaghetti squash is one of my favorite veggies! When I was growing up, my parents never really bought many grains such such as pasta or bread, so I am used to the lower carb diets. I am not the biggest fan of carbs and this blog has given me so many more ideas for things that I can eat instead of typical pasta. I can’t want to try all of these options!
