I noticed this 2X Savings Catcher thing on the Bluebird site a few days ago, but didn’t have a chance to investigate what it meant:

From the FAQ:
Once you’ve redeemed Walmart® Savings Catcher Reward Dollars to Walmart® Buck$, all you have to do is use your Bluebird Card at participating Walmart stores and and your Walmart® Buck$ will be automatically deducted to pay for your purchase.

Walmart® Buck$ are separate from funds in your Available Balance and your SetAside Account and can only be spent at participating Walmart stores and Walmart® Buck$ cannot be transferred to your Bluebird Available Balance or your SetAside Account. Walmart® Buck$ are not redeemable for cash and cannot be withdrawn via an ATM or point-of-sale, or used for any other purpose (other than spend at Walmart stores and such as bill pay or other features available on Bluebird.
