Walmart Begins Testing Of Grocery Receipt Comparison Tool
Called the "Walmart Receipt Comparison Tool", the feature entered testing phase in mid-August in several Albuquerque, Chicago and Atlanta stores.
A demonstration video as well as marketing copy on the microsite, seeforyourself.walmart.com/receiptcomparison explains the steps:
- The customer takes a picture of their receipt from the grocery store where they regularly shop.
- The customer then uploads the image of the receipt to Walmart's microsite, along with an email address.
- Next, Walmart's "team of price checking wizards – figuratively speaking" will process the receipt and compare the prices versus the nearest Walmart Supercenter
- A link to the results will be emailed to the customer within 24 to 48 hours.
