If you shop a lot at Walmart or a Walmart-owned store like Sam’s Club, Moosejaw, or Bonobos, a Walmart Plus subscription gives you a lot of benefits, like free store deliveries and mobile scan and go.
Similar to other subscription programs (such as Amazon Prime), Walmart Plus provides its members with early access to forthcoming sales campaigns, bargains, and gaming console launches, as well as savings at its partners’ gas stations. They have also started delivering groceries in a few big cities in New York, California, and Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Everything you need to know about a Walmart Plus membership, along with a comparison to Amazon Prime, is here.
So, to begin, what exactly is Walmart+?
Walmart Plus is a membership club for Walmart customers who purchase frequently. The subscription service competes with more expensive services such as Amazon Prime and Best Buy Totaltech. Users of Walmart Plus get benefits both in-store and online, such as free shipping on all orders and discounts on gas at some gas stations.
A subscription to Walmart Plus costs $98 per year, or $12.95 per month. However, a free 30-day trial is included.
Walmart plus Benefits
Here is a list of Walmart plus benefits:
Speedy Delivery: Customers will receive unlimited, free delivery on more than 160,000 goods, including electronics, toys, and household necessities. Same-day delivery is possible with 1-hour delivery windows.
Scan & Go: This feature of the Walmart app will expedite in-store shopping. Customers may use the Walmart App to scan their purchases while they shop and pay using Walmart Pay for a speedy and touchless payment experience.
More Savings: Members of Walmart Plus may save up to 5 cents per gallon at approximately 2,000 Walmart, Murphy USA, and Murphy Express gas stations. Sam’s Club gasoline stations are also included. Also, Walmart made it possible for members to save 10 cents right away on every gallon of gas they bought at participating gas stations. Members can now save money at Exxon and Mobil gas stations across the country.
Prescriptions for free: Walmart pharmacies provide free chosen medicines and discounts of up to 85 percent on hundreds of other choice prescriptions.
These perks are in addition to Walmart’s existing free curbside pickup, next-day delivery, and two-day delivery choices. Naturally, Walmart continues to provide delivery choices with a transaction charge for each delivery so that consumers can select the optimal service.
Walmart Plus vs. Amazon Prime
Amazon Prime is, of course, one of Walmart (and Walmart+ )’s competitors, as it offers comparable incentives, such as free two-day shipping — and even one-day shipping on qualified products. There are further benefits offered by the online retail giant. Amazon’s subscription plan includes Prime Video, Twitch, and Amazon Fresh, for example, and because of these additional features, Prime memberships are $40 more expensive than Walmart Plus subscriptions, or $139 yearly.
Walmart Plus features may look restricted in contrast to Amazon Prime on the surface, but its distinctive advantages and competitive edge over Amazon are its multiple U.S. shops and the perks Walmart Plus delivers to in-store consumers, such as mobile scan and go and fuel discounts. If you live near a Walmart, it might save you money to sign up for both memberships.
Even while Walmart Plus makes it easier than ever to shop in-store, you can still buy a range of things, from electronics to furniture, at Walmart online.
Walmart+ Latest News
Certain PS5 restocking events and Xbox Series X restocking events are exclusive to Walmart Plus members. This significantly raises your chances of obtaining a console, but it does not ensure success.
In addition, Walmart Plus members no longer need to spend a minimum of $35 to qualify for free delivery. Walmart stated last year that members would be able to receive free delivery on all orders without having to reach the $35 minimum barrier.
Moreover, Walmart is increasing the number of venues where members may utilize their gasoline savings. Walmart Plus members are now eligible for gasoline discounts at over 500 Sam’s Club locations. All of these features are good for customers, even more so now that Amazon has decided to stop offering Prime Pantry.
