How You Can Save $68 Per Month on Grocery Deliveries with Walmart+

Looking for ways to save time and money on groceries? Walmart’s new Walmart+ Membership has introduced a solution to the delivery dilemma. Over the course of the past 12 months or so, many families have made the transition to online grocery shopping. The shopper simply has to select the groceries they’d like to buy on a website, pay for them, pay a delivery fee, then kick back on their couch and wait for their groceries to arrive.

Over time, though, these delivery fees can start to add up, putting a small crunch on your monthly finances. With Walmart+ you can save $68 per month* with free delivery from your store. For a limited time, you can sign up for a free trial of Walmart+ to experience the benefits for yourself. Considering the amount of weekly grocery shopping done by an average family, a Walmart+ membership will save you money vs. paying for individual delivery fees. It will also save you time, giving you more options about how you live your life.

How Much Money Can a Walmart+ Membership Save Me?

The business of delivering fresh groceries is fast-paced and manpower-intensive. That’s why many stores charge a delivery fee to get your groceries from the store to your door. Based on a fee of $7.95 for each of two deliveries per week, delivery expenses can add up quickly. This is especially true for larger families, who might need more than two grocery deliveries per week.

For just $2 per week**, however, a Walmart+ membership provides you with free delivery from your store for groceries, shoes, clothes, pet food, and whatever else you need to keep your household moving forward.  Some simple math will show that it can save you $68 per month and can pay for itself in just two deliveries. Over a year, this typical monthly savings adds up to $816. Think of what you could do with an extra $68 per month or $816 per year — join a gym, enroll in a new streaming service, or grow your net worth by investing.

How Much Time Can a Walmart+ Membership Save Me?

The shopper in a typical family can visit a grocery store three times per week, on average. This can mean that you spend 2.5 hours per week in a store, vs. 2.5 hours living life at home doing the things you love. Luckily, a Walmart+ membership can save you that 2.5 hours per week with free delivery from your local store. Simply by shopping online and having your groceries delivered directly to your door, you gain back valuable time in your schedule. Using the Walmart app is easy and you can order multiple times in case you forget something so you’ll always have your kitchen in stock.

What are the Benefits of Walmart+ Membership?

A Walmart+ membership includes numerous other benefits besides getting groceries and more delivered as soon as same-day for free, including:

  • Free shipping from, no order minimum required.
  • Member prices on fuel. Save 5¢ per gallon at most Walmart, Sam’s Club, and Murphy fuel stations.
  • Mobile scan & go – check out with your phone as you shop in-store.

The Best Food Delivery Services in 2022
food delivery service bag

Believe it or not, we're over a year into this pandemic. By now, most of us have adapted to working from home and living almost entirely at our houses. For most people, that means dining 24/7 at home, too. Cities and towns across the U.S. are regularly updating and re-updating their rules and regulations on dining and drinking out. That has left many of us scrambling for our usual restaurant delivery fix. Fortunately, every major food delivery service is still operating, making it entirely possible for us not to leave the house (or our lounge pants) for the foreseeable future. Here are our favorite food delivery options:

Even Walmart is getting in on the food delivery game with the all-new Walmart+ service. For less than $100 annually, your membership includes free delivery from your local store (a $35 minimum order is required here, and restrictions apply). Once you order $35 worth of goods -- including groceries, gadgets, clothing, and anything else your area Walmart stocks --  delivery as soon as the same day is free. The number of deliveries is unlimited, and members also score member pricing at Sam’s Club fuel centers and 5 cents per gallon off fuel at Walmart and Murphy stations nationwide. Plus, in-store shoppers can check out right from their smartphone with mobile scan and go. Take a 15-day test drive of the service for free.

Why You Should Stock up on Groceries and Home Essentials on Prime Day
amazon prime day package

It's easy to assume that Prime Day deals are all about big discounts on your favorite technology rather than anything else. After all, Amazon is your go-to place for technology and gadgets, right? Amazon does so much more than that though because it also stocks a huge number of household items such as toothpaste and shampoo, as well as groceries such as coffee and even diapers. Simply put, there's not much that Amazon doesn't sell anymore, with the company easily a one-stop-shop for everything you could need on a daily basis. That's why Prime Day is the ideal time to stock up on essentials for less than ordinarily.
Is Prime Day Really a Good Time to Buy Household Essentials?
You might be thinking that Prime Day will just offer incremental discounts on household essentials but you're mistaken. Last year, the best-selling item during the Prime Day sales was Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips. The teeth whitening kit was an inexpensive way to whiten your teeth like a professional-level treatment all from the comfort of your own home. It's no surprise then that it was the biggest seller that year, even among all the extensive technological discounts we saw during the Prime Day sales.
How Else Can You Save Money on Household Essentials During Prime Day?
Another way that Prime Day shoppers saved big last year was by taking advantage of Amazon's partnership with Whole Foods -- one of the best places to shop for groceries online. Prime members can save an extra 10% off sale items at Whole Foods, whether buying in-store or online, with Amazon also dishing out $10 Amazon vouchers if you spend over $10 on your grocery shopping. A fantastic deal, it has run for the past two Prime Days in a row, even during the global pandemic, so we're expecting to see it feature prominently again.
What Else Should I Consider in Prime Day Household Sales?
This is the time to stock up on all your favorites. Many household items have long expiry dates or can last indefinitely such as coffee, diapers, and all things hygiene-related. Buy as part of the Prime Day sales and you can enjoy big discounts all year round.

There's simply no reason to hold back when these are the kind of essentials you'll need to pick up throughout the year anyhow. Plus, you get to enjoy the satisfaction that comes from knowing you've picked up a great deal during the Prime Day sales without being too indulgent.
