Convenience has always been king, but since the pandemic took over all of our lives seven months ago, it now reigns supreme. If a service makes life even a little bit easier, faster, or more efficient, we’re into it. If it makes it a lot easier, safer, and fully doable from home, then we’re all in.
Which is why Walmart’s newest subscription program, Walmart+, might be the best new membership to try out. The biggest draw of Walmart+ is its free delivery service, which requires no order minimum and offers same-day to two-day delivery. In addition to ordering online, you can also get your groceries (and any other in-store products) delivered from your local store* at no charge so you never have to leave your house. It makes it super-easy to get everything you need, even multiple times a week, without going out. Social distancing, what’s up.
A Walmart+ membership also comes with reduced prices on fuel at select gas stations and a mobile app that allows you to scan products and leave (no check-out necessary) if you do end up venturing into a brick-and-mortar store.
The program normally costs $12.95 per month, or $98 a year — which is a savings, especially if you’re ordering food delivery, and pays for itself pretty quickly — but you can now try it out for free for 15 days.
