Attention, Walmart shoppers! The giant retailer is launching a new membership program that brings together in-store and online benefits to save customers money and time: Walmart+. The program uses the company’s wide-ranging 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 2,700 stores that offer same-day delivery.
Membership will be available to all customers, starting Tuesday, September 15.
It will cost $98 a year or $12.95 a month and includes a 15-day FREE trial period.
In the future, the company will leverage its wide-ranging strengths to add additional benefits for members in a variety of services and offerings. The list of benefits will continue to grow over time.
Here’s the initial list of Walmart+ benefits:
Unlimited FREE Delivery
In-store prices as fast as same-day on more than 160,000 items from tech and toys to household essentials and groceries.
This service was previously known as Delivery Unlimited – a subscription service that allows customers to place an unlimited number of deliveries for a low, flat fee. (Current subscribers will automatically become Walmart+ members.)
Scan & Go
Unlock Scan & Go in the Walmart app – a fast way to shop in-store.
Using the Walmart app, customers can scan their items as they shop and pay using Walmart Pay for a quick, easy, touch-free payment experience.
Fill up and save up to 5¢ a gallon at nearly 2,000 Walmart, Murphy USA and Murphy Express fuel stations. (Sam’s Club fuel stations will soon be added to this lineup.)

These benefits come in addition to the retailer’s existing customer offerings, including FREE curbside pickup, Next Day delivery and two-day delivery.
Walmart will continue to have delivery options with a per-delivery transaction fee, so customers can choose the service that’s best for them.
