Get ready to get excited
If you’ve been doing almost all of your shopping with Amazon Prime, it might be time to make a change. Don’t get us wrong—we love Amazon, with its huge selection of products you’ll use every day and amazing deals you’ll score on Prime Day. But Walmart’s newest service, Walmart Plus, is about to give your favorite shopping site a run for its money.
Plus will offer a similarly priced monthly subscription model that allows members to get everything from fresh groceries to home goods, wellness items, clothing, and sporting gear delivered directly to their doors without any additional shipping fees. Better yet, in many instances, your Plus items can be delivered the same day you order them. Walmart also promises the same prices for Plus members as in stores (yippee!), as well as a variety of other perks, like discounted fuel at Walmart gas stations, self-checkout by bar code scan in Walmart stores, and a discounted annual membership fee of $98 that blows Amazon’s out of the water. Here’s what else you need to know about Walmart Plus to score the best online deals all year long, and here’s how you can try it out for yourself—for free.
Note: Prices listed were accurate as of press time; pricing fluctuations may occur.
Super affordable grocery items
One of the greatest benefits of being a Walmart Plus member is access to Walmart prices on grocery favorites and pantry items. Sure, Amazon Fresh has a great selection through its Whole Foods subsidiary, but Whole Foods is notoriously expensive—and sometimes you just want an affordable fridge full of snacks to get you through the week. Walmart Plus offers a one-hour delivery window, so you can adjust your schedule accordingly and make sure your perishables stay fresh and delicious. We found full-size tubs of Sabra Hummus about 20 percent cheaper on Plus when compared with Amazon Fresh. Find out which other things you should be buying from Walmart.
Pandemic essentials you can actually find
By now, everyone knows what a chore getting toilet paper, bottled water, and other quarantine essentials can be when there’s a pandemic brewing. Some people were so discouraged, they gave up toilet paper in favor of bidets and switched from bottled water to tap water for good. Whether you refuse to give up your bottled H2O or want to have some handy, just in case, you’re in the right place: Gallon jugs of Alkaline 88 alkaline water are available for delivery for Walmart Plus members and are just as affordable as they are in-store. Add a few to your order of paper goods, beans, and other non-perishables and you’ll be ready for anything.
Gift-worthy pieces at steep discounts
You won’t have to worry about forgetting great gifts for men or anyone else on your list again with Plus, because a variety of items like this Every Man Jack body wash are available—and cheaper than you might find elsewhere. We found the brand’s popular sandalwood body wash for men for less than $6 through Walmart; Amazon’s price is more than triple that.
Great prices and faster delivery on Apple products
This may shock you, but Walmart often has great deals on new Apple products, and with Plus, they’ll ship faster than ordering directly from Apple—and you won’t have to deal with the hassle of going to the retail store. We found new Apple AirPods Pro available for next-day delivery, or sometimes same-day depending on your region. Between the fast shipping and versatility, they make some of the best tech gifts out there.
Say Hello Bello to savings
Walmart-exclusive brands, including Hello Bello, are also part of Walmart Plus, which means you’ll be getting rock-bottom prices on household goods like hand sanitizer, vitamins, baby products, diapers, and much more. You’ll never have to worry about hitting the end of your hand sanitizer bottle again when you know a refill can be delivered in a matter of hours with your Plus membership. At 26 cents per ounce, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better deal on 2020’s MVP. Check out the top-selling Walmart products in every state.
Protein-packed brunch favorites
You’ll be able to whip up the best Sunday brunches a quaranteam could ever ask for, because Plus members get unlimited access to pantry items delivered right to their doors. Protein-packed Kodiak Cakes’ pancake and waffle mix can be delivered as soon as same day, and for regular shoppers by the next day. And it’s under $5 with Walmart Plus—that’s less than half of what Amazon charges for the same product. On the fence about this purchase? Believe it or not, one serving of these rich pancakes has more protein than an egg. Enjoy guilt-free!
Over-the-counter meds in a rush
Feeling under the weather? Don’t worry—you don’t have to venture out or find someone to go to the store for you, because Walmart Plus offers a variety of over-the-counter medications (as well as first aid items) as part of its same-day and next-day delivery offerings. A multi-pack of Equate Maximum Strength Day & Night Sinus Caplets will cost you less than a Starbucks venti latte and requires a lot less effort for Plus subscribers. Over-the-counter meds are also among the unexpected things you need to pack for a vacation during the pandemic.
Bath towels for a whole lot less
Cushy, absorbent bath towels are just a click away and less expensive than you might expect for Walmart shoppers. Better Homes & Gardens Plush Cotton Bath Towels are priced under $8 for Plus members and even less for smaller hand towels and washcloths. They’re the perfect addition to your collection of home spa essentials, and a small luxury you’ll wonder how you ever did without.
Whether you’re learning or working from home, several models of Zoom-ready Chromebook laptops are available for fast shipping with Walmart Plus, with most promising next-day delivery. One solid option for your consideration: the 14-inch Lenovo Chromebook S330, which is affordable but still has all the required bells and whistles to make the most of the new learning and working landscape. While we’re on the subject, make sure you have these other tech tools kids can’t learn without this year.
Home-office furniture delivered in hours
Broke your home office nook desk? No problem—Walmart Plus will get you a new one in a matter of hours. Need a more comfortable chair, upbeat stationery, and some pencils? Walmart has those, too. This Urban Shop Faux Fur Armless Swivel Office Chair ships directly to your door by the next day so you can work in style. It’s also far less expensive than any comparable trend-market chairs found on Amazon or Target. Here’s how to nail the perfect business casual outfit for remote work days.
Quick-ship wine glasses at dollar-store prices
Don’t fret about breaking a glass or needing more for your pod’s wine and cheese night, because you can score wine glasses delivered to your door for just over a dollar each, thanks to Walmart Plus. Cheers to that, right? A 12-piece set of Luminarc 15-ounce Cachet Clear Stemless Wine Glasses also makes a fun and affordable hostess gift.
Equate favorites available for delivery
Savvy, longtime Walmart shoppers love the store’s in-house brand for generic versions of everything from face wash to ponytail holders. Now these extremely affordable Equate products will ship right to your door with a Walmart Plus membership. Members will have access to in-store pricing on products that shoppers usually can’t get delivered, like makeup remover wipes that work out to just a nickel each. You can count on a lot of things being cheaper at Walmart than Amazon, and the Equate brand is almost always the winner.
Salon-approved dry shampoo at a steal
One of the silver linings of 2020? Nobody is asking us to wash our hair as frequently as we did in the pre-pandemic world, and dry shampoo is more useful than ever. Colab Dry Shampoo Dreamer, a lightly fragranced dry shampoo your stylist would definitely approve of, is 10 percent cheaper from Walmart Plus than any other retailer, and delivers it faster. It’s a win for your wallet, your patience, and definitely your hair. You might also want to pick up a few of these hair-care products that stylists can’t live without.
Must-haves for the kids
After you get this year’s flu shot (yes, you need a new flu shot every year), make sure to stock up on other essentials to get the kids through cold and flu season, like electrolyte drinks and other items you won’t want to rush out for if a bug hits your family. Kinderlyte ships same day or next day for Walmart Plus subscribers, and it’s roughly 15 percent less expensive than it is at Amazon. Next, check out the 15 services you didn’t know you could get at Walmart.
