Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Walmart Plus
Walmart is launching Walmart Plus, a new membership program that will allow customers to maximize their in-store and online savings.
The membership is available to all customers today, on September 15, for $98 a year of $12.95 a month and includes a 15-day trial period. Walmart Plus will span over 4,700 stores, of which 2,700 offer same day delivery. The membership allows customers to get unlimited free delivery from stores, fuel discounts, and access to other tools that make shopping faster and easier. Plus, Walmart Plus will be adding more benefits and offerings in the future.
“We are a company committed to meeting our customers’ needs,” Janey Whiteside, chief customer officer, Walmart, said in a press release. “Customers know they can trust us and depend on us, and we’ve designed this program as the ultimate life hack for them. Walmart+ will bring together a comprehensive set of benefits where we see the greatest needs from our customers and where our scale can bring solutions at an unprecedented value.”
Below is a full breakdown of the current Walmart Plus benefits:
Unlimited free delivery with in-store prices on over 160,000 items ranging from tech and toys to household essentials and groceries. The service was previously Delivery Unlimited, and all current subscribers will automatically become Walmart Plus members. Scan & Go: Using the Walmart app, customers can scan their items while they shop and pay using Walmart Pay for a quick and touch-free payment experience. Fuel discounts: Save up to five cents a gallon at close to 2,000 Walmart, Murphy USA and Murphy Express stations. Sam’s Club fuel stations will also be added to the list in the future.
In addition to Walmart Plus, the retailer will also continue to offer delivery options with a per-delivery transaction fee so customers can choose the best service for them.
“Life feels more complicated than ever. Walmart+ is designed to make it easier–giving customers an option to not have to sacrifice on cost or convenience,” Whiteside said. “We know shopping should fit customers’ needs, not the other way around. We have always been a champion for the right item at the right price, but now it’s more than that. We have the right shopping solutions at the right time, too.”
