BENTONVILLE -- Walmart has a new online program designed to help you find their competition's lower prices.

The Savings Catcher launched nationwide Monday. Shoppers can head to the website or download a smart phone app to enter a code on their receipts. The program compares the prices of items bought at Walmart to weekly advertised prices of other retailers. If the it finds a lower price, Walmart will give customers the difference on a Walmart eGift Card.

The company began testing the app back in April in seven of the retailer's biggest markets. At its launch, Savings Catcher compared approximately 80,000 grocery items but the Walmart plans to add produce and general merchandise in the coming months.
