Walmart has made a big change to their two-hour delivery service: No minimum purchase required.
Since Express Delivery debuted in spring 2020, customers have had to place orders of at least $35 to take advantage of the quick turnaround time. That’s a thing of the past now.
Here’s what you need to know:
Any order is eligible for two-hour delivery (but fees apply).
Get Walmart food, merchandise, toys, electronics, and more — for the same price as in store — in two hours or less with Express Delivery.
You could even just order one item — but remember that delivery fees of up to $20/order still apply, no matter the size of your order.
Express Delivery is running from nearly 3,000 Walmart stores, reaching 70% of the U.S. population. Visit walmart.com/grocery or the Walmart app to see if Express Delivery is available in your area.
Express Delivery benefits Walmart+ subscribers the most.
If you’re not a Walmart+ member, you’ll be paying the standard delivery fee of $8-$10 per order, plus the Express Delivery fee of $10. That’s up to $20 per order!
Walmart+ subscribers pay $98/year or $12.95/month to waive the standard delivery fees — so they only pay $10/order for Express Delivery.
Annual Walmart+ subscribers only pay about $8.17/month for unlimited delivery, so for Express Delivery customers, the membership pays for itself immediately.
You can try Walmart+ free for 15 days.

After that, choose to pay $98 for an annual membership or $12.95 for a monthly membership; both prices are lower than what Amazon Prime charges ($119/year & $12.99/month).
Amazon Prime Now two-hour delivery is free, but requires a $35 minimum.
Prime members can pay up to $10 if they want a Prime Now order within one hour, but otherwise, the speedy delivery service is free for their minimum orders of $35.
But since you’re shopping Whole Foods with Prime Now, you’ll hit that $35 minimum pretty quickly. The price comparison of Walmart to Whole Foods isn’t even close (Walmart’s so much cheaper).
You still have to spend $35 for Walmart’s other convenience services.
The $35 order minimum still holds for these other services:
- Standard delivery (for Walmart+ members and non-members)
