Ad content in partnership with Walmart+ — the membership that helps you save time and money.
Did you know that the average family spends 2.5 hours per week shopping? Uh, whoa.
In an effort to make life easier for busy families—and save them a whole lot of time—Walmart launched Walmart+, a new kind of membership program that brings in-store and online benefits together to save customers time and money.
For many of us, our shopping habits changed drastically over the past year. We became accustomed to shopping online, and getting groceries and household essentials delivered directly to our door instead of shopping in-store. Even with stores reopening, that convenience is something we’re not ready to give up! No matter how you want to shop, a Walmart+ membership gives you the best of both worlds, allowing you to save both online and in-store with the same low prices you love.
With summer in full swing, it’s time to stock up on all of the essentials! From new swimsuits for the family to everything you need for that next backyard BBQ, Walmart is your one-stop shop for under-the-sun fun—and a Walmart+ membership gets your summer essentials to you in a flash.
What Are the Benefits of a Walmart+ Membership?
Here’s the cool stuff! Walmart’s membership service comes with a whole host of benefits that include free delivery from your store on groceries and more, discounts on fuel and access to tools that make shopping faster and more convenient. Let us break it down for you.
Unlimited free delivery from your store
Need to stock up on groceries, but don’t have time to go to the store? Sounds awfully familiar. With a Walmart+ membership, get free delivery as fast as same-day on fresh groceries, last-minute gifts and up to 180,000 other items from your store, and at the low prices you know and love. Just make sure you meet the $35 order minimum, and note that some restrictions apply. Check here for availability in your area.
Free shipping with no order minimum
Besides finding a great deal, free shipping will have us adding to cart faster than you can say BOPIS. And with a Walmart+ membership, you get free next-day and two-day shipping on items from Walmart.com*—with no order minimum required. From pet food to summer camping gear to kitchen gadgets, you can get items shipped as often as you need—for free. That’s music to our ears.
Rx for less
Saving money on your prescriptions should be a no-brainer, right? As of June 2021, Walmart+ members can now get select prescriptions for free and up to 85% off thousands more at participating Walmart pharmacies**. The new benefit is available for paying members once the free trial ends, and you can avoid waiting around by ordering online and picking up at your local store.
Score special member prices on fuel
Beep beep! You’ll want to take this deal for a spin! Walmart+ members get some pretty stellar fuel discounts at over 12,000 convenient locations. As of April 27, 2022, you get 10 cents off at participating Exxon and Mobil stations, as well as 5 to 10 cents per gallon at Walmart, Murphy USA and Murphy Express gas stations. AND, you get access to member prices at Sam’s Club fuel centers. This discount will come in handy on that next summer road trip!
Ad-free music with Spotify Premium
Walmart+ members receive a six-month individual Spotify Premium membership for free. With Spotify Premium, you get ad-free music, unlimited skips, podcasts and more. If you love it, then after the six-month trial, you pay $9.99 a month.
Video streaming with Paramount+
With a Walmart+ membership, you can watch blockbuster movies, family favorites, hit dramas and live sports with an included Paramount+ Essential Plan subscription.
Mobile scan & go
Last but not least is one of our favorite Walmart+ benefits. Members shopping in-store can scan and pay for items as they shop for a quick, easy, touch-free payment experience. Simply open up the Walmart app and choose the mobile scan & go option under “Services.” Scan each item’s barcode and place it in your cart, and then check out digitally! Yes, that means no checkout lines. Just scan, pay and be on your way!
How Much Does Walmart+ Cost?
Now here’s the important stuff! A Walmart+ membership costs $12.95 per month or $98 a year—which is less expensive than similar services and comes out to just $2 per week***. It pays for itself in just two deliveries!**** Plus, your membership includes a 15-day free trial (or bump it up to 30 days by answering a few short questions) to test out the service with the option to cancel at any time!
In addition, Walmart+ members have access to all of Walmart’s existing offerings, such as free curbside pickup, NextDay delivery and two-day delivery.
With all of the Walmart+ benefits and shopping options, this is a convenient and easy membership that truly lets you choose how you want to shop and save. Sign us up!
