Walmart’s App Offers Grocery Pickup Or Delivery—Here’s How To Order

While people are practicing social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak, many are trying to get essential things like groceries through delivery and collection services. Even if you’re a die-hard Walmart fan, you might not know that the store has its own system for ordering pickup.

To help those who may be new to the game, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know before placing your first Walmart order through the grocery app.

How do I order Walmart for pickup or delivery?

Just go to their grocery website or download the groceries app from your phone’s app store. There you will be asked to create an account and select a delivery address or a pick-up location and a time slot. They recommend doing this before starting an order as the spots fill up so quickly. Pickup and delivery availability may vary by location. This will also tell you if one of the two is available in your area.

The first time you place an order, you will be asked if you would like any tips for ordering, which we highly recommend. You can check them out here too. Some app-specific bonuses include tagging favorite items for easy reorder, setting Siri shortcuts, and tracking your order.

What is the difference between collection and delivery?

Depending on availability and your location, you can choose between pickup and delivery for this day or the following, making it difficult to snag stains. Make sure to stop by often, especially first thing in the morning.

If you choose to be picked up, it’s free, but you’ll need to show up at your chosen Walmart location by a specified time. The staff will load your trunk with your groceries and you’re done!

If you choose to have delivery there will be a fee of approximately $ 8. You can also sign up for Delivery Unlimited which is $ 12.95 per month or $ 98 per year. If you choose this option, you will definitely want the Walmart app as you will be notified when your driver leaves and you can also follow the progress through the app. If you’re cool with that, they can just leave your groceries on your doorstep as contactless delivery.

How do I start shopping?

Once you’ve created an account and given a time slot, you can browse various Walmart departments and add items to your shopping cart by clicking the “Add to Cart” button. Oh, and depending on what you’d like, make sure to enable or disable replacements for the order in case your store is down.

You need to reach a minimum of $ 30. Since availability can be tight, it is better to place orders in larger batches than in smaller, frequent ones. It’s also worth noting that you cannot use any coupon codes other than Walmart’s friend promotion (more on this below).

When you’ve finished shopping and hit your minimum, double-check that you have everything you need, that your delivery or pick-up location and time are correct, then check out.

Are there any promotions I can take advantage of?

Walmart has a referral program that can help you and your friends save money on grocery orders. Visit this website to get your personal referral link. Send the link to your friends and once they complete their first order they will receive a $ 10 coupon code for your next order.

Another way to save if you shop at Walmart frequently is to get a credit card that gives you 5 percent back.
