Walmart is known for its everyday low prices on everything from groceries to electronics, but now the retailer is becoming the go-to destination for drivers who want to score a great deal on fuel, too. Sign up for a new Walmart+ membership program and start receiving fuel savings of 5¢ per gallon whenever you gas up at Walmart, Murphy USA and Murphy Express stations.

Pay Yourself Back with Year-Round Fuel Savings

You can join Walmart+ now for $12.95 per month or $98 a year (and save $57.40 with the yearly option, which is 37% off the month-to-month plan). Broken down, that means if a three-car family needs a tank of gas* each week (that’s 48 gallons per week, per family), then the 5¢-per-gallon discount adds up to a savings of $124.80 per year. 

With these savings, the program could pay for itself after signing up for an annual $98 Walmart+ membership, making joining essentially “free.” Plus, the annual fuel savings don’t even include all the other membership benefits and the time saved using free unlimited home deliveries from your local store to your home.

You Get More Than Fuel Savings with Walmart+

The savings continue to add up.

On top of member prices on fuel, with a Walmart+ membership, you’ll receive free unlimited delivery on over 160,000 products at in-store prices when you shop online. Based on a $7.95 delivery fee, your annual membership also pays for itself in just two deliveries. Add that to the Walmart+ fuel savings, and the money saved adds up exponentially.

You could save a lot of time and money over a year. 

With the benefit of free unlimited delivery from your local Walmart store to your doorstep, Walmart+ could save you an average of 2.5 hours per week and $68 per month in delivery fees.** Just think what you could do with an extra 10 hours (a full day!) this month.  

**Savings based on two deliveries per week vs. non-member $7.95 fee. $35 minimum order. Restrictions apply.

Save even more time in the store with Walmart+. 

As if the fuel, time and money savings along with Walmart’s already low prices and many locations isn’t enough, Walmart+ membership also gives you exclusive access to the convenience of Scan & Go, which allows you to scan items with the Walmart+ app as you shop at Walmart locations (helping you to keep track of spending). Check out with your smartphone to make in-store shopping fast, easy and also contact-free.

Based in Brooklyn, I am a travel and lifestyle writer who loves a great deal. I once ran my own website focused on how to jetset while underemployed, which says a lot about how I roll. Now I stretch my budget by keeping an eye on the Slickdeals app on my phone and use the extra savings to travel the world in style whenever possible.
