Get more convenience, save time and spend less cash each time you shop Walmart? Yes, please! Walmart’s brand new Walmart+ membership program launched mid-September and the new free unlimited delivery service (which includes much more than just free delivery!) is already promising to be a game-changer for Walmart shoppers –especially for families looking to stretch both budgets and time.
According to the Walmart company website, the goal of Walmart+ is to leverage the reach of Walmart brands and stores to make life even “easier for busy families” who already shop and use Walmart stores and Walmart.com as their go-to for groceries, fuel and so much more.
The new Walmart+ membership offers many ways to save even more on a huge array of merchandise at already low prices and same-day delivery services to have items delivered to your door, as well as gas discounts and contact-free shopping.
Who Could Benefit Most from Joining Walmart+?
Anyone who is a regular Walmart shopper and is located near an eligible store will love Walmart+. If shopping online, you’ll get the same everyday low prices available in brick-and-mortar Walmart stores, and purchases that are available in-store will arrive for free at your door as soon as the same day.
If shopping in-store, the Walmart+ subscription Scan & Go app (for your smartphone) saves you money as well as time standing at the checkout. Busy families who find themselves making several trips a day to stores could benefit the most, as could those planning on doing most of their 2020 holiday shopping from home who want to still take advantage of Walmart’s in-store low pricing combined with free unlimited deliveries.
Top Benefits of Walmart+

1. Order and receive items the same day to your door – for free!
As with some other popular membership programs available, you also receive free unlimited delivery with Walmart+. But the difference is since Walmart has thousands of physical stores across the country, you can stock up on items from fresh groceries and meats to tech and school supplies and schedule them to arrive at your door after selecting from the one-hour delivery windows.
In fact, as many as 160,000 of Walmart’s store products are available from your local store, right to your door with 1-hour delivery windows of your choosing.
2. Pay quickly with your phone with the Scan & Go app
If you prefer to browse in-person at a store in order to actually see and feel what you’re getting before buying it, the convenience of the Scan & Go app for Walmart+ shoppers will help you speed through your shopping and track your list and budgets.
Walmart+ offers customers a super streamlined shopping experience with Scan & Go in the Walmart app. Just scan items as you shop in-store and pay for your selections touch-free using Walmart Pay right on your phone.
3. Score discounts on gas
Get member prices on fuel to save and extra 5¢ per gallon on fuel at Walmart & Murphy stations which total nearly 2,000 Walmart locations, Murphy USA and Murphy Express stations across the nation. According to the Walmart website, benefits and savings at Sam’s Club fuel and gas stations will soon be added to the Walmart+ membership benefits.
4. Pssst, Parents: Enjoy free unlimited delivery daily
Not only do Walmart+ members get to access Walmart’s low in-store prices without even leaving the comfort of their home or office, they also get free delivery 365 days a year with no limits on the number of items, size of an item or how many times you order in a single day or week. This is a great bonus (and stress reliever) for families who easily find themselves hitting up their local Walmart store several times a day for school projects, dinner ingredients, baking supplies or last-minute gifts or errands. As a member of Walmart+, busy parents with too much on their to-do lists can place as many orders as they need in a day without the extra cost of delivery fees or the stress of loading up and buckling in their crew in the car each time.
Plus, free unlimited delivery offered to Walmart+ members combined with Walmart stores’ low prices and huge variety of items and inventory could become a shopping, budget and time-management life-saver once the holiday shopping season draws closer.

Try Walmart+ for free
If you’re still unsure if Walmart+ is worth it or are uncertain which plan works best for you and your family, the retailer is currently offering a 15-day free Walmart+ free trial to help you decide.
To start your trial, you just need to confirm your address to find out which Walmart+ benefits are available at stores around you (some areas are not yet included in the program or have limited benefits, such as Scan & Go and discounts on gas but no free unlimited delivery, for example.)
How to get a free 15-day Walmart+ trial
- After you’ve checked your address, create a log-in or sign into an existing Walmart.com account.
- Next, select the plan you may want once the trial’s over — either the $12.95 monthly option or the full-year $98 plan.
- Now, just add a payment method and your Walmart+ trial is ready to go. Just remember to cancel before the end of the 15-day trial, or do nothing to continue the Walmart+ subscription you selected.
