As a small business owner, I’m all about a good life hack. And I’m sure any parents or other young professionals out there are always looking for ways to save a bit of time!
My schedule is incredibly unpredictable and very chaotic every single week. Trust me, I try to organize my time to the best of my ability, but over the last few months, I’ve been inundated with last-minute requests and projects.
One thing I noticed that was taking so much of our time? Grocery shopping. At the beginning of quarantine, Tom and I went to the grocery store Tuesday afternoons to avoid the weekend crowds but found out that it took up nearly 1.5 hours in our day. As much as I love that my schedule is flexible so I can run errands during business hours, I also knew that I could spend that time working or creating instead. It was a big chunk of my day!
Enter: Walmart+. Here are a few reasons why Walmart+ is 100% worth it!
Free Unlimited Delivery with Walmart+
What hooked me into signing up for Walmart+ was the free unlimited delivery ($35 minimum, restrictions apply). Not only does it save me time, but also money in the long run!
What I love about the Walmart+ free unlimited delivery is that you can get groceries, beauty products, and more delivered to your home as soon as the same day. I can already tell that this is going to be a gamechanger this holiday season, but for now, I love ordering last-minute essentials with the membership. In addition to some groceries, I had these highly-rated makeup wipes delivered to my house last week because I noticed that I was running low, but didn’t have a ton of time to run out to the store in the middle of a busy workday!
One note: you will need to place a $35 minimum order to take advantage of the free unlimited delivery, and restrictions apply.
Member Prices on Fuel
Now that some local businesses have opened up, I find myself out and about a little more often.
Walmart+ members may also enjoy member prices on fuel at Walmart and Murphy fuel stations. If you sign up for Walmart+, you’ll enjoy 5 cents off every gallon of fuel. Pretty cool, right? Every little bit helps out when filling up, so I’m super excited to take advantage of this offer when I’m on the road in an area where I can use this benefit!
Mobile Scan & Go
I don’t mind going into stores to shop when I have the time. Honestly, it’s nice to get out of the house from time to time, and it provides a refreshing break during the workday! It’s really nice to have the option either to go in-store or get things delivered each week.
Another Walmart+ benefit that will make your life easier? Their mobile scan & go feature! With this benefit, you can check out with your phone to make shopping in-stores fast and contact-free. All you have to do is scan your items, pay with your phone, and you’re on your way! It makes shopping a breeze!
