Bluebird doubles Walmart price match rebates

Note: On January 8, 2016 American Express sent out a notice to a large number of Bluebird & Serve cardholders informing them that loading capabilities on their accounts had been terminated. For more information, see: Amex kills Bluebird and Serve for manufactured spend

Valid through Feb 28, 2015:

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:

Luckily, Miles to Memories has written up the details here.  In short, if you price match items bought at Walmart, you can get double the difference loaded to your Bluebird card as Walmart Bucks to be used at Walmart for future purchases.

The trick now will be to find items that cost twice as much at Walmart as at competitors in order to get 100% of your money back!  I’m putting my money on Dan’s Deals to be first with that one…

Its important to note these funds are not normal BlueBird funds. They are called Walmart bucks and can only be used at Walmart. Still not a bad deal, but not as good as just unrestricted funds in your BB account.
From the FAQ:
Once you’ve redeemed Walmart® Savings Catcher Reward Dollars to Walmart® Buck$, all you have to do is use your Bluebird Card at participating Walmart stores and walmart.com and your Walmart® Buck$ 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.com. 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 Walmart® Buck$ are not redeemable for cash and cannot be withdrawn via an ATM or point-of-sale, or used for any other purpose (other than spend at Walmart stores and walmart.com) such as bill pay or other features available on Bluebird.

So if I have $$ loaded on BB and also WBux, does it take the Bux first? Or do I have to make sure they pull from WBux first? Or is there even an option to choose which?
