On May 14th, Walmart announced its NextDay delivery program, which offers free one-day shipping on orders of $35 or more. Shoppers can enjoy this perk on up to 220,000 frequently purchased goods, including diapers, electronics and toys.
The move seems to be in response to Amazon’s decision to offer free one-day shipping to Prime members. However, Prime members have to pay a $119 annual fee, while Walmart shoppers will enjoy the new perk for free, as long as they meet the shipping minimum.
The NextDay program will be available to Walmart.com customers in Phoenix and Los Angeles first, and then to Southern California customers shortly after.
Most other U.S. cities will have access to this quick shipping perk sometime this year, as Walmart plans to reach 40 of the top 50 major U.S. metro areas and 75% of the U.S. population.
How Does Walmart NextDay Delivery Work?
Once NextDay is available in your area, you’ll be able to shop Walmart.com under NextDay eligible items.
Then just add at least $35 worth of products to your cart and proceed to checkout. Note that every item in your cart must be eligible for NextDay to qualify. Additionally, cut-off times for one-day shipping will vary by location.
Walmart One-Day Shipping to Complement Grocery Pickup
Walmart states that its ultimate goal is to make life easier for busy families. With 90% of Americans living within 10 miles of a Walmart, it’s undeniably a convenient shopping choice, especially for grocery pick up.
If you haven’t tried out Walmart Grocery pick up, it’s definitely worth looking into. It has been life changing for me. I cannot even count how many times I’ve placed my grocery order at midnight and then picked it up at 8 a.m. without having to leave the car with three kids.
If you are considering it, this $10 off of $50 coupon makes the experience even sweeter.
