If you've already joined the ranks of Walmart shoppers who have signed up for the Walmart Savings Catcher rewards program, you probably have a few bucks earned back from your purchases. But what if you could double that?
You might have noticed Bluebird cards hanging out in every nook and cranny in Walmarts in the past year or so. These are American Express cards that act like a checking account of sorts (though they are clear on their website that it is NOT a bank.) Check out Bluebird here.
Where the tie in between the programs occurs is that if you have a Bluebird card, you can redeem your Walmart Savings Catcher earnings to your Bluebird card. From now until February 28, 2015, you can redeem your Savings Catcher money to your Bluebird card as Walmart Buck$. These Walmart Buck$ can only be used at Walmart, at not at Sam's Club or any other retailers (McD, hair cutting places, etc. that have tenancy in a Walmart building).
You redeem them by paying with your Bluebird card at checkout. There is also a limit of $599.99 per calendar year for double bucks program monies, so you will want to keep that in mind if you are a hard and heavy shopper/saver wanting to transfer money over.
That said, if you're open to opening a Bluebird account and you have a lot of Savings Catcher Rewards, it's a great way to double your money in time for holiday shopping.

Disclosure: This is not a paid post. I apologize if it comes off that way! I am simply sharing program information that I feel my readers might want to know about. I shop at Walmart, but I do not have a Bluebird card. Please be sure to do your research on the Bluebird card (I have linked to info above) before you make any financial decisions.
