While Walmart said it will add program benefits over time, members will have access to shipping on more than 160,000 items from tech and toys to household essentials and groceries to start. They will also be able to Unlock Scan & Go in the Walmart mobile app. Using the app, shoppers can scan their items as they shop and pay using Walmart Pay for a contactless payment experience. Additionally, the program gives members up to 5 cents a gallon back at nearly 2,000 Walmart, Murphy USA and Murphy Express fuel stations. Sam’s Club fuel stations will soon be added to this lineup.
“Life feels more complicated than ever. Walmart+ is designed to make it easier – giving customers an option to not have to sacrifice on cost or convenience,” added Whiteside. “We know shopping should fit customers’ needs, not the other way around. We have always been a champion for the right item at the right price, but now it’s more than that. We have the right shopping solutions at the right time, too.”
The new membership will include a 15-day free trial period.
