Walmart Plus sign ups are now available, giving customers a new way to purchase items and save money, and compete with Amazon Prime…
Back in July, rumor had it that Amazon was going to get some fierce competition. According to multiple news reports at the time, Walmart was gearing up to introduce a new service, branded as Walmart+. Then, the retailer had to delay the launch, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, it’s set to go live, with a new sign up page appearing on the company’s official website.

For those unfamiliar with the new service, Walmart+ is a more direct competitor to Amazon Prime. There are similarities and some marked differences, though. For instance, Walmart Plus offers free same-day delivery where available. It’s also about the same price as Amazon Prime, with Walmart+ costing $12.95 per month or $98 per year. But, it also offers cashier-less checkouts, along with fuel discounts.
Other perks include reserved parking spots for Walmart+ members, along with a limited version of Walmart Express. (The latter is a service that includes two-hour deliveries of certain merchandise in select cities.) To qualify for free delivery, it’s necessary to purchase at least $35 worth of goods. But, with over 160,000 products, that shouldn’t be difficult whatsoever.
For those interested but not willing to make a monthly or yearly commitment, Walmart is also offering a free 15-day trial.
