How to Save Money Shopping at Walmart
AARP – Drawing in customers with its rock-bottom prices, Walmart now generates 1 out of every 10 retail transactions in the U.S., according to Pymnts.com.
And 90 percent of Americans shop at its website or at one of its more than 4,700 stores every year, the company says.
Price comparisons with other retailers confirm that buying at Walmart and Walmart.com will save you money. But you can do even better. Following up on tricks for shopping at Amazon, here are six Walmart secrets that could save you hundreds of dollars a year.
Get instant access to members-only products and hundreds of discounts, a free second membership, and a subscription to AARP the Magazine.
1. Do join Walmart+ if you regularly shop online for groceries.
The store’s new membership program, which costs $12.95 a month (or $98 a year), gets you unlimited free shipping on deliveries of groceries and other everyday items totaling $35 or more.
Those delivery charges would otherwise be $7.95 to $9.95 a pop. So if you shop at least twice a month, Walmart+ will pay for itself. (This local delivery service isn’t available everywhere, however, and tips are not included.)
As a member, you also get unlimited free delivery, with no minimum order size, on thousands of “shipped by Walmart” nongrocery items. In addition, you get a 5-cent-per-gallon discount on fuel at Walmart and Murphy stations, and you can gas up at Sam’s Club, too. Sign up for a free trial at Walmart.com/plus.
2. Do consider Walmart’s credit card.
The Capital One Walmart Rewards Mastercard gives you 5 percent back on purchases at Walmart.com and 2 percent back at Walmart stores. (You’ll get 5 percent on in-store purchases for the first 12 months if you pay via the company’s smartphone app.) But skip this no-annual-fee card if you can’t pay your bill in full each month, since interest charges, ranging up to 27 percent, can eat up rewards and a lot more.
3. Don’t pay for shipping.
Walmart.com offers free next-day delivery on thousands of nongrocery items, with a minimum order of $35 — no Walmart+ membership required. (Again, it’s not available everywhere.) Plus, Walmart.com is now offering free at-home FedEx pickups to make online returns super easy.
For groceries, you can get free same-day curbside pickup at your local store. Walmart will do the shopping for you and will even load your order into your car …
