Using the Walmart App for Discover Price Protection

-1 Deal Score
3,160 Views
I was going to use DPP for a Walmart purchase, but the store price that I want to use can only be found on my app on my phone. I have an android if that matters. What I would like to know is: is there a way to get a screenshot with all of the info on the app. I know if I can find the price on the website, I can just zoom out on my browser to get all the info I need for the price protection claim. I can't get all the pertinent info on one screen at once on my Android app. Is there a trick that I don't know about? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You have to do several screenshots and pull your notification bar down just enough to show your date and time , it also helps if you have the store location set for the item so it also shows on the main screen below the normal online price , you can only upload 5 images but that should be enough to get good screenshot with and without date and time stamps . Yes I feel your pain it's not easy , im sure someone probably has an app or a script that will screenshot with time and date but haven't seen any

I see the $20 price on brickeesk and on the app only, which makes it difficult to screenshot.

Some newer Samsung phones take longer screenshots so you don't need multiple shots to cover a full Walmart product page length. Alternately, there are also apps that stitch screenshots together vertically to cover an entire page. As for the date and time, on Android it's not too difficult to slide down the notification menu enough to expose date + time and capture a screenshot simultaneously.

I'm more concerned about providing a screenshot that clearly states an online price that is much higher, and then a much lower in store price that also is out of stock which I'm asking to be matched to. Also, it's only the lower price for one particular size/color combination of the item I'm looking at.
