Move over Amazon Prime. Walmart has a new members-only club that offers exclusive benefits that work online and in-stores, an advantage the retailer has over Amazon. Walmart+ is Walmart's membership program that goes far and beyond. Here's the lowdown.

What is Walmart Plus?

Launched in Sept. 2020, Walmart+ is the retailer's subscription service that has several key perks that shoppers can't get anywhere else -- including exclusive deals, special members-only discount days, free two-day shipping (with no order minimum) from Walmart.com, fuel savings, and much more.

How Much Does Walmart Plus Cost?

Walmart+ goes for $98/yr. for the annual plan, or $13/mo. to go month-to-month. Both the annual plan and the monthly plan are cheaper than Amazon Prime, which goes for $139/yr. and $15/mo., respectively.

Interested? Sign up for a 30-day free trial to take advantage of all the perks and savings. 

Paramount Plus and Spotify Streaming

Want to watch hit originals, such as 1883The OfferStar Trek: Strange New Worlds, and more? Paramount+'s ad-supported Essential Plan (a $60 value) at no additional cost with a membership for Walmart+. It's one of the best ways to get Paramount+ for free, along with other exclusive savings at Walmart.

In addition, Walmart+ members can also get six months of ad-free Spotify Premium for free (a $59 value). 

What are the Benefits of Walmart Plus?

  • Free next day and two-day shipping. Walmart+ members can take advantage of free two-day shipping with no order minimum on Walmart.com. And since there are thousands of Walmart locations across the country, members can also get free next-day or two-day shipping from their local store. However, there is an order minimum of $35 for local store shipping. 
  • Fuel savings. Members can also save up to 10 cents per gallon at Exxon, Mobil, Walmart, Sam's Club, and Murphy gas stations nationwide.
  • Scan & Go app. Access to Walmart's Scan & Go mobile app, which allows members to scan and pay for products at their local Walmart. No more standing in line for cashiers.
  • Spotify Premium access. Six months of Spotify Premium, which is the music streamer's ad-free plan.
  • Early access to deals. Walmart+ members can get early access to deals before the general public during sale events like Walmart's Deals For Days, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and more.
  • Free Paramount+ streaming. Paramount+'s Essential Plan is free for all Walmart+ members. The streaming service includes live news and sports, along with popular movies and TV shows from CBS, Comedy Central, BET, MTV/VH1, Nick Jr., Nickelodeon, Paramount Pictures, and Smithsonian Channel.
  • Walmart shopping rewards. Walmart partnered with Ibotta to give Walmart+ members cashback rebates on items available online and in-stores with up to $500/yr. in rewards.
  • Home grocery delivery. For an additional $40/yr. ($138/yr. in total), Walmart+ members get free grocery deliveries from their local Walmart Supercenter to their homes.

Our Final Take

If you live near a Walmart and a participating gas station, then it might be worth signing up for Walmart+ -- especially if your local Walmart sells groceries. With zero shipping and grocery delivery fees, the subscription service could save you money throughout the year.

Meanwhile, Walmart+ is one of the best ways to get free Paramount+ and Spotify Premium, which makes the pot a little sweeter. It also tops Amazon Prime because the service works online at Walmart.com and in-stores at more than 3,500 Walmart Supercenters in the US. By comparison, Amazon only has a small handful of brick-and-mortar stores.

If you're still on the fence, Walmart+ offers a 30-day free trial to try out the service before you commit. If you're still not into it, you can cancel anytime before the 30-day trial is over. No harm. No foul.
