In 2020, Walmart unveiled Walmart+ as their challenge to Amazon Prime. The service offers a bunch of perks to try and sway Amazon fanatics away from Prime, like next-day delivery on some items, grocery delivery, and fuel savings.
For $98/year or $12.95/month, Walmart+ lets you plan a Walmart shopping spree without leaving the house. If you do a weekly order, this will help you save hundreds of dollars. Here’s all the math and everything you need to know.
Download the official KCL app and toggle on notifications so you never miss a Walmart deal.
Sign up for Walmart+ to get free next-day and two-day shipping without minimums.
One of the biggest draws for Walmart+ is the free one-day and two-day shipping from Walmart.com, no matter how much is in your cart. Without Walmart+, you need to hit at least $35 total for free two-day shipping, so say goodbye to the days of overloading your cart to avoid a shipping fee.
Remember that this excludes oversized and freight items.
Get unlimited same-day delivery with orders of $35 or more.
Walmart+ members get as many same-day deliveries from Walmart Grocery as they want with no extra charge. But keep in mind you still have to hit a $35 minimum for same-day grocery delivery, even with Walmart+.
You also get one free Express delivery with Walmart+, meaning everything will be at your door in two hours or less. After that, it’ll cost $10 per order. Without Walmart+, you’d be spending $10 on top of the $7.95-$9.95 standard delivery fee. Keep in mind you also have the option to tip at checkout or when you get the order confirmation.
If you shop a couple of times a week, you could save hundreds per year on your grocery delivery fees! (Check out the chart below.)
Try Walmart+ free for 15 days.
Get the free shipping, unlimited grocery delivery, and other perks for 15 days with the Walmart+ free trial.
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).
Pick up Walmart prescriptions at a discount (or even free).
The store just added a new perk to their subscription service: Walmart+ Rx for less. This feature gives you discounts on select prescriptions for an average of 65% off, and sometimes totally free. Here’s all you have to do:
- Search for your prescription and location on the Rx for less page.
- Access your digital savings card through the Walmart Pharmacy section of the website or app.
- Share your digital savings card info with your Walmart pharmacist the next time you get your prescription filled.
Keep in mind, you can’t take advantage of this perk if you’re on a Walmart+ free trial. The savings can’t be combined with insurance.
Walmart+ also offers scan and go shopping and fuel savings.
Walmart says they’re going to keep adding features to the Walmart+ subscription in the future— like reserved Pickup slots, special sales, and even a Prime Video streaming competitor — but until then, here’s what else the program offers:
- Mobile scan and go shopping: Walmart+ members will be able to scan products while shopping in Walmart, and then check out using Walmart Pay to avoid the checkout line for a touch-free payment experience.
- Fuel savings: Save up to $0.05 per gallon at nearly 2,000 Walmart, Murphy USA and Murphy Express fuel stations — with Sam’s Club fuel stations coming soon.
