(Pocket-lint) – Walmart has its own subscription delivery service, Walmart +, which is looking to compete with Amazon Prime. Here’s what you need to know.
What is Walmart +?
Walmart + (Walmart Plus) is a subscription service. If you live in the United States and subscribe to it, Walmart has said that you can get unlimited free shipping to Walmart stores for orders over $ 35. According to Walmart, more than 160,000 items are included – even fresh groceries and household essentials. Deliveries can be “as fast as same day”, but it also depends on your location and what you bought.
Keep in mind that Walmart.com has a long history of offering some customers free two-day shipping (on orders over $ 35) for thousands of items.
How much does Walmart + cost?
Walmart + costs $ 12.95 per month or $ 98 per year. In comparison, Amazon Prime costs subscribers $ 119 for a year.
Are there any additional benefits from Walmart +?
Along with free shipping for orders over $ 35 in the United States, subscribers also get fuel discounts at partner gas stations. Walmart said you can save up to five cents a gallon if you use Walmart’s Scan & Go mobile app, which lets you scan items while you shop and pay through your phone.
Recently, Walmart also added discounts on filled drug prescriptions at Walmart’s pharmacy. You can read more about “Rx for Less” by clicking here.
Walmart said it plans to add new benefits to Walmart + in the future.
How does it compare to Amazon Prime?
Walmart + is relatively new, so it’s not yet as robust as Prime. Amazon’s subscription service is a bit more expensive but offers a range of benefits, including access to the company’s Amazon Prime video streaming service, as well as Twitch Prime, Prime Music, free photo storage, and Prime Now.
Additionally, Prime does not have a minimum purchase amount for free shipping.
When will Walmart + be available?
Walmart + launched in the United States on September 15, 2020.
