Walmart+ Review & Overview

Walmart has launching a new membership program that brings together in-store and online benefits to save customers money and time. It is called Walmart+ and it is a direct competition for Amazon Prime. In this Walmart+ review we will go over everything you need to know about Walmart+ and also how it differs from Amazon Prime as far as price and benefits.

Walmart+

Walmart has officially rolled out Walmart+, a paid membership program that gets you same-day delivery on more than 160,000 products and more.

Price

Walmart+ costs $98 a year or $12.95 a month. So paying for the entire year up front saves you about $58 annually. There is also a 15-day free trial period.

Check the Dosh app, for 10% cashback on annual memberships, or 5% cashback on monthly Walmart+ memberships.

Customers can sign up for Walmart+ at walmart.com/plus.

Features

The initial list of Walmart+ benefits are below. The list of benefits will continue to grow over time.

  • Unlimited free delivery: In-store prices as fast as same-day on more than 160,000 items from tech and toys to household essentials and groceries. This service was previously known as Delivery Unlimited – a subscription service that allows customers to place an unlimited number of deliveries for a low, flat yearly or monthly fee. Current subscribers will automatically become Walmart+ members.
  • Scan & Go: Unlock Scan & Go in the Walmart app — a fast way to shop in-store. Using the Walmart app, customers can scan their items as they shop and pay using Walmart Pay for a quick, easy, touch-free payment experience.
  • Fuel discounts: Fill up and save up to 5 cents a gallon at nearly 2,000 Walmart, Murphy USA and Murphy Express fuel stations. Sam’s Club fuel stations will soon be added to this lineup.

How Does It Stack Up With Amazon Prime?

Now let’s take a look how Walmart+ compares to Amazon Prime and which service makes sense for you.

The first thing most people look at, is the cost of the service. Amazon Prime costs $119 a year, while Walmart+ costs $98. That is $21 less if you go with Walmart+. But if you want to try out Amazon Prime, you can do so for 30 days, while Walmart+ is only doing a 15 day trial for now.

Quick and convenient deliveries are one of the most important features for each service. They both get you same-day delivery on orders of $35 and more and even grocery deliveries in select areas. Once could work better than the other for you based on your location.

But just because you can get same day delivery, doesn’t mean that anything you want will be at your door within 24 hours. Amazon Prime has more than 3 million products available for same-day delivery, while Walmart+ only 160,000. So Amazon is clearly ahead here.

Then there’s the other benefits that the membership provides. Walmart+ only gets you a savings of 5 cents a gallon at the pump and a fast way to shop in-store for now. But Amazon Prime gets you Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Gaming, free reading and free unlimited photo storage with Prime Photos, savings at Whole Foods and more.

Conclusion

Picking between Amazon Prime and Walmart+ will mainly depend on how you use each service. If you take advantage of everything that Amazon Prime has to offer, then it is the better option in my opinion. But if all you need it fast deliveries, and you are in an area where Walmart+ will also get you groceries, then save the $21 and go with Walmart.

Both services offer free trials, so definitely do a trial first before paying $119 or $98 for a whole year. Then you can have a better idea how Amazon Prime and Walmart+ work and can make an informed decision.

  1. “savings at Whole Foods” – yeah, that’s a pretty funny phrase. Comparing a $1.50 loaf of bread at Walmart versus 10% off the $6 equivalent price at Whole Foods.

  2. Walmart+ = same day delivery of items found at your local super center (including perishables) at normal prices.
    Amazon = everything else.

    I’m paying for both and have been with Walmart since March (when formerly Delivery Unlimited). A lot of hype as an Amazon killer, which it isn’t. It’s actually been very complimentary and otherwise essential for us with 3 young kids at home including a 5 month old (born during the national lock down).
