Starting Friday, December 4, Walmart is expanding the benefit list of Walmart+, its perks membership program, by removing the $35 shipping minimum for Walmart.com orders for its members.

This new benefit paired with free unlimited deliveries of groceries and more from Walmart stores makes the retailer’s membership program even more comprehensive.

“It feels like a life hack is needed now more than ever, and Walmart+ is here to help,” said Janey Whiteside, chief customer officer, Walmart.

“No other membership allows customers across the country to get everything from gingerbread cookies and eggnog to holiday decorations and toys delivered for free as soon as the same day. Walmart+ is designed to make life easier – giving customers an option to not have to sacrifice on cost or convenience.”

Walmart+ members will receive free next-day and two-day shipping on items shipped by Walmart no matter the basket total. Prices on items will remain the same, true to Walmart’s every day low price promise. Delivery from Walmart stores on items like groceries will still carry a $35 minimum.

Newest Walmart+ Benefit Only Two Months After Program Start

This latest perk comes two months after the launch of Walmart+ and builds on the retailer’s promise to continue adding benefits to its membership program.

Free shipping with no minimum joins a benefit list that includes unlimited free grocery deliveries, fuel discounts and the ability to use Scan and Go in stores, which lets customers shop and check out with their phone.

“Customers have been clear – they want this benefit. Being able to toss an item into your cart, regardless the total, and check out right away lets them knock little things off their to do list in no time,” said Janey Whiteside, chief customer officer, Walmart.

The retailer is also expanding the number of locations where members can use their fuel savings to include Sam’s Club fuel stations across the country.

That means customers now have access to fuel discounts at more than 2,000 Walmart, Murphy USA and Murphy Express fuel stations, as well as access to Sam’s Club member pricing at over 500 Sam’s Club locations.

Walmart+ uses the company’s unique assets to make life easier for busy families. Along with the power of its online presence, Walmart+ has the reach of more than 4,700 stores, including 2,800 stores that offer delivery, reaching 70 percent of America.
