No time to head to the store? Grocery shop from home with a Walmart+ Membership!
As a working mom of two kids, there is nothing worse than running out of household goods when I’m too busy to hit the store. In times like this, I rely on being able to order grocery delivery right to my doorstep and have conveniently delivered same-day for free, with a $35 order minimum courtesy of my Walmart+ Membership! Restrictions apply.
I’ve been using this membership for 2 months now and it has been such a game-changer for me and my family. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been lying in bed and realized we need essentials like milk, cereal, and bread. Now I can schedule an order to be delivered straight to my door for the next morning! No more running to the grocery store in PJs for me!
I honestly LOVE my Walmart+ membership and so does the rest of the Hip2Save team. Using Walmart+ is a no brainer, because it makes your shopping experience easier than ever.
Not familiar with Walmart+? Here’s what you need to know!
Your grocery delivery is FREE with any order of $35 or more. With so many products available from Walmart, it’s not difficult to hit that minimum.
Even better, members can earn Walmart Rewards when they buy certain products – just look for the “Add Reward” under eligible items. Then when you purchase the eligible items to earn rewards, you’ll be able to use them towards future purchases. Such an EASY way to save! Note that reward quantities and eligible items are limited and subject to change.
And Walmart delivery includes more than just food!
Yep, you read that right! While most would think this benefit covers just Walmart food delivery, the shopping selection goes beyond just essential groceries. You can order household items like home goods, clothes, and even clearance items!
As a busy mom, I also love that my Walmart+ membership allows me to multi-task. If I need a gift for an upcoming birthday party, I can just order a gift right along with my household groceries! Last month I treated myself to both a cookie and new candle in my favorite scent, because why not?! 😉
I mean, Walmart truly is a one-stop shop! Just check out the cute flutter sleeve top I scored for under $15 and had shipped to me using my Walmart+ benefits! Collin has this top too and we both love it! 😍
I can’t express how wonderful it is to be able to freshen up my wardrobe without even leaving my house. I snagged this new maxi dress, and I not only scored the sale price, but it was delivered right to my door, all thanks to Walmart+! 👗🛍️
Unsure if this membership is right for you? There is a FREE 30-day trial! If you decide you love it as much as I do, you’ll pay just $12.95/month after the trial ends.
A Walmart+ subscription also offers other benefits too!
First off, if you do happen to head in-store, a really great benefit of Walmart+ is the ability to use the Scan & Go app and skip the checkout lines! Just scan items on your mobile device while you’re shopping and check out contact-free.
In-store shopping doesn’t get faster or easier than that!
Another great benefit of Walmart+ is the fuel savings. Who doesn’t want to save on gas these days?! I can save up to 10¢ a gallon at over 14,000 participating fuel stations across the nation! This includes popular stations like Mobil, Walmart, Murphy, and Exxon.
Walmart estimates I can save over $75 a year! The discount does vary by location and station but any fuel savings is good in my book. See Walmart+ terms and conditions for more details on these and other benefits.
Customer service is helpful too!
On my last order, I did experience a hiccup when Walmart forgot my milk. However, I found that customer service was really easy to get on the phone. I was able to chat with them and they not only refunded me for the milk, but they gave me a $15 coupon to use for next time!
That was really nice and I have no complaints. Nobody wants to have to call customer service but when you do, you want the call to go smoothly, and Walmart delivered.
Plus, if I have to return anything, Walmart will come pick most products up up directly from my home! I don’t have to print or repackage anything – it’s amazing!
So far, I’ve had a 5-star experience with Walmart grocery delivery and my other Walmart+ benefits!
I’ve been using the membership for 2 months and there isn’t a bad thing I can say about being a Walmart+ member! I am honestly obsessed with this membership! Just last week Walmart+ came to the rescue when my kids were sick and I couldn’t get out to the store. It was such a relief to be able to place an order for their snacks at night and have it waiting at my door at 8 am. 🙏🏻
My Walmart same day delivery is always efficient and the items come bagged properly. The one time I had an issue, their customer service was more than sufficient. I really appreciate the nearly endless selection at Walmart and how this subscription gives me the ability to get all my household needs in one delivery. Plus, there are so many benefits that save me even more time and money.
This membership totally pays for itself! If you want my honest opinion, I think everyone needs a Walmart+ membership in their life! 🙌
The only reason I have not done this is because I think this is more like a Door Dash vs UPS delivery situation? I feel like the tip would negate any savings? I do use their free shipping with orders over $35 but unsure about the tipping aspect of Walmart+.
I feel the same way about the tipping! I’d rather do free pick up because that tip does add up!
I can totally understand your perspective on the delivery and tipping, Angie! 💕 In my experience, delivery does arrive from a driver, similar to a DoorDash experience. I personally have opted for store delivery a few times now, and feel that although there is tipping involved for the driver, the convenience of it for the times when I’ve needed it has been super helpful, and it takes one thing off my “to-do list.” I do enjoy the free shipping (no $35 minimum needed) as well! 🤗❤️
I was wondering about the tipping aspect as well since there is a membership fee. Add on the minimum $35 purchase and tip–it adds up. Aren’t there local grocery stores offer something similar without an annual fee?
Hey Cici! You might check with your local grocery stores to find out if they offer delivery services. 💕 In my area, I have Kroger that charges $6.95 per delivery (+ driver tip), or a $99/year Kroger Boost membership for 2-hour delivery. I snagged a Walmart+ membership for $57 with this “5 Months Free” offer last month, which was helpful to try out all the Walmart+ perks for less. Hoping your account might also be eligible for this discounted rate! 🤞❤️
Here’s my question, is this like the Shipt and Instacart memberships that mark up the prices for items? I have used the Walmart pick up for many years and I have enjoyed it- my in store prices versus pick up order prices are almost the same or only minimally higher. I’d love to try the Walmart+ subscription but was turned off of other services because of the super inflated prices when shopping.
Hi Lindsay! I don’t find the prices to be higher or inflated compared to in-store prices. For example, a 16 oz jar of Jif peanut butter is $2.76 with Walmart+ delivery, which seems to be about the same price in store for my area. They do offer a free 30-Day trial membership, if that might be helpful for you to check out all the pricing, and benefits to see if it’s a good fit for you before continuing it. 🤗💗
I always pay 5% tip. It is so worth it for me for many reasons: grocery pick-up at my Walmart is a nightmare- always missing items and long wait time (around 30-40 min), my delivery orders have never missed any items, bringing bags from front door into house is much easier then bringing in from the car, I earn on average $5 rewards that I apply to future orders, and I can still get many back from Ibotta. Essentially it pays itself and I have less stress. Win! Win!
SWEET! Thanks for taking the time to share this helpful review on how you’ve been using and enjoying your Walmart+ membership, Elizabeth! So awesome that you’ve been earning rewards to use on future purchases! 🙌💞
I don’t like how there is no tip required for non food items . If I order anything food related they require a tip. It seems unfair to the driver and customer. I don’t know why a tip is required. isn’t walmart paying them? I don’t tip the cashier. Why is there only a tip for food items? I don’t like the tip thing. I’d rather pay more upfront for the membership.
The drivers are independent contractors and use their own vehicles/gas. Walmart is paying a small amount per delivery, but usually over half the pay is coming from tips.
I give a flat tip of $3 since the groceries are loaded up for the drivers, they don’t do the shopping-a Walmart employee does. I have tracked my order before and I notice that the driver delivers a few orders along the way, so hopefully they’re getting tipped along the way as well. I know most of the local grocery stores charge A LOT more for the groceries I get so even with the yearly fee and $3 tip, I come out so much ahead. Not to mention, random things don’t end up in my cart the way they do when I actually go to the store. Haha
I love that white maxi dress (worn by that lady almost at the end of this post). ❤️hip2save
I’m loving it too! 🥰 It’s from Walmart!
I’ve been using Wal-Mart grocery for a couple years. I have walmart+ since it includes free shipping, delivery and pickup. Non o e is required to tip. In fact, when placing a delivery order, I don’t tip until after delivery is completed. That way if there was a prob with delivery, I may reduce the tip or not tip at all. But don’t feel bad for not tipping.
Walmart+ doesn’t deliver in my area but I use it for when we vacation to have soda, water, breakfast items and snacks delivered. I also use the free shipping and love that it includes Paramount plus which I enjoy !
Awesome idea to use it for when on vacation, Jennifer! 💕🙌 That does sound helpful! Happy you’re enjoying Paramount Plus too! Thanks for commenting! 🤗
