Walmart’s low prices are pretty great. But the freebies at Walmart are even greater, because free beats cheap any day. Never shop there without taking advantage of Walmart freebies and finding ways to get money back. From rebates to gift cards to moneymakers and beyond, let’s take a look at how to get free stuff from Walmart.

1. Combine Ibotta deals with rollback prices for free soda and more.
One of the easiest ways to grab Walmart freebies is to use Ibotta rebates with Walmart’s rollback prices. Here’s a recent example:
Submit one $1.25/1 – Pepsi Zero Sugar, 2-Liter bottle, Ibotta Rebate
Pay $1.25, submit for $1.25 Ibotta credit
Final Price: Free
And that’s just the beginning. I’ve gotten Walmart freebies through Ibotta on major brands like Starbucks, Pringles, Pure Leaf, and Annie’s. Walmart and Ibotta have also partnered up so rebates will go right to your Walmart account.
2. Combine coupons with clearance makeup for an instant freebie (or moneymaker).
Makeup is one of the things I can often find coupons or deals for, and I combine them with clearance prices to get a free product. For example:
Use one $2.00/1 – Rimmel Eye Product (coupons.com)
Final Price: Free
Look for these freebies on items like makeup, body wash, and hand soap.
I’ve also seen a deal at Walmart where Covergirl mascara was clearanced for $1 and combined it with a coupon from SmartSource for $2 off Covergirl mascara. The result was a $1 moneymaker, which was applied to the rest of the items I bought!
3. Take advantage of free gift card deals at Walmart.
Walmart will often offer deals on specific brands for a free digital gift card. Just buy a certain amount of a product and boom! Free gift card.
I’ve also seen recent Walmart gift card deals on sports drinks, baby formula, diapers, wellness products, and humidifiers. Definitely stack this with Ibotta rebates or coupons for even more savings.
4. Earn free Walmart gift cards through apps like Swagbucks and Honey.
Most rebate apps give you the option to get paid with gift cards, and most have Walmart gift cards available. You can earn cash back on specific products with Ibotta, get credit from specific stores with Honey Gold and TopCashback, or watch videos for points on Swagbucks. This is definitely one of the easiest ways to score free Walmart gift cards.
Here are the apps that allow you to cash out with gift cards from Walmart:
5. Use Walmart’s grocery pickup for free.
Since you can’t use coupons with Walmart grocery pickup, you’re best off using rebate apps to save more. Pickup orders don’t include a physical receipt, but there are still ways to get your rebates.
6. Get free 15-day free trial with Walmart+, plus free shipping and more.
If you haven’t tried out the Walmart+ subscription service, start a free trial for 15 days. If you’re not a fan, just cancel before the trial wraps up. The service offers free shipping with no minimums, plus free grocery delivery on orders over $35.
They’ll occasionally run extended free trials to entice new customers, like the 30-day offer they had in December 2020.
When you shop Walmart.com, even without a Walmart+ subscription, all your orders $35 and over qualify for free shipping.
7. Use BOGO coupons for free household essentials.
Taking advantage of BOGO coupons is a good way to stock up on household items like snacks, pet food, and toiletries.
Use one B1G1 FREE – Gillette Invisible Solid, up to $5.49 (excludes trial/travel size) from PG
Final Price: $2.74 each, when you buy 2
8. Buy individual bananas at no cost.
Did you know you can buy just one single banana from Walmart for $0.18? Combine that with a store coupon or an Ibotta offer to get ’em free!
