What Does Walmart Plus Include?

There are several benefits that come with being a Walmart+ member. Perhaps the most notable is free grocery delivery with no markups.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these benefits in turn:

1. Free Grocery Delivery

Grocery shopping is one of my least favorite things to do. Some people say it’s therapeutic.

But for me, hauling that cart around the stores reminds me of a 1,001 things I need to do.

With Walmart+, all I do is add everything I need to my shopping cart and let Walmart+ do the rest. With this benefit, you can get your groceries delivered to your door without paying any extra fees.

Unlike some other grocery delivery services, Walmart does not add markups!

2. Free Shipping

Another great benefit of Walmart+ is that you can get free shipping on your orders, with no minimum purchase required.

This benefit excludes most Marketplace items, but there may be location- and freight-based surcharges.

This was a must-have for me since I do a lot of online shopping. Hitting the checkout button, knowing that I wouldn’t be hit with a shipping fee, was a huge plus.

As a side note, you might still get (freight-based) charges in places like Alaska. I know because I used to live in Alaska.

Believe it or not, some of the items I love getting at Walmart are clothing. Walmart has REALLY stepped up its game regarding affordable + decent-quality fashion for the family.

In addition to the dress I’m wearing above, here are a few awesome pieces I recommend from Walmart:

3. Fuel Discounts

Walmart+ members can save up to 10 cents per gallon on fuel at over 14,000 stations across the country. However, the exact amount of the discount varies by location and station and is subject to change.

We are all too familiar with the skyrocketing prices of gas right now.😓

Although it might not seem like much, $0.10 per gallon adds up pretty quickly, especially for those that commute.

4. Early Access to Deals & Events

As a Walmart+, you’ll also have early access to deals and events that non-members don’t have access to. For example, you get early access to Black Friday sales.

Remember that not all deals and events are available to trial members and that quantities may be limited.

Honestly, I haven’t even bothered with the Walmart+ membership perk. However, I’ve come across some great deals on Walmart fashion. I bet the Walmart Black Friday deals will be epic this year.

Products that are marked down for Walmart+ memberships will show the marked-down price in green font.

5. Free Paramount+ Subscription

Finally, Walmart+ members also get a Paramount+ subscription included with their membership for free. This gets you access to Paramount’s streaming library of movies and TV shows.

The subscription is for the Essential plan only; if you want access to the premium content, you’ll need to upgrade your Paramount+ subscription.

This perk is new and actually rolled out a few months ago. Although Paramount is not a must-have for me, this gives me more movie options without paying more (to Walmart or for video streaming).

6. Free 6 Months of Spotify Premium

If you’ve been on the fence about trying Spotify Premium, now’s your free shot at trying Spotify for free.

Say hello to ad-free music listening and unlimited skips!

For me, this feature is a meh since I’m quite comfortable with Amazon Music.

7. Walmart REwards

Many retailers fall back on loyalty rewards to encourage repeat purchases. I’m excited to see how the Walmart Rewards program evolves over time.

Two of my favorite retailer reward programs are the Sephora Beauty Insider rewards program and Ultamate Rewards.

While the reward points might seem like it’s growing slowly, I have no reservations that Walmart Rewards will end up being worth it.

Click on “Earn Rewards” on eligible items to get rewarded before purchase.

8. Mobile Scan & Go

The Walmart+ Mobile scan & go makes it easier to checkout in less time. The contactless checkout and streamlined in-store shopping experience.

As I mentioned earlier, in-store shopping is not something I enjoy. But if I need to run into the store, I can use the app to check the prices of products and check out once I’m ready to leave.

Retracted Walmart+ Benefit

1. Rx For Less

One of the really attractive perks of Walmart+ benefit was the Rx for less perk at over 4,000 Walmart pharmacies.

As a healthcare worker, I was very ecstatic to see that this benefit could help members save up to 85% on prescriptions.

Sadly, Walmart discontinued the Rx for less program effective May 31, 2022 (an email was sent about this on April 29th).

This breaks my heart for those Walmart+ members that relied heavily on this benefit.

2. …

None!

I’ll keep this post updated if this changes. And if you, my dear reader, catches wind of any updates I may have missed, please drop a comment below with all the details.
