Walmart is a one-stop shop for most everyday items. Now that most Walmart stores offer a wide variety of grocery foods, it's easy to take advantage of their low prices to do your grocery shopping as well.
One new feature that you can take advantage of now is the Walmart Grocery Pickup app. This app allows you to order your favorite grocery food and items online from the comfort of your own home and for free, very similar to iBotta.
If you've never used this feature before, you'll want to read this in-depth Walmart Grocery App review so you can learn more about how to use the app along with how it can help you save money and time.
You can get started with Walmart Grocery by simply signing up with your Walmart.com information. If you don’t have an account and would like to create one if you use the code provided on Walmart.com you can actually receive $10 off your first order!
It’s nice having both the app and the desktop version because what you use on one saves and can be viewed on any of your devices that have the Walmart Grocery App.
Sort through the app on which groceries you would like and submit the order. All orders must be a minimum of $30.
Walmart makes the app simple and easy to use. You'll use it to shop just like you would in the store. Search for produce, meats, snacks and more and add the items you need to your cart. After you select the groceries that you want, pick a time that works for you and pay online.
Use the app to check in when you're on the way to pick up your order so the store knows your expected arrival time. Once you arrive, Walmart usually has designated an area of the parking lot strictly for Grocery Pickup customers.
The app makes the staff aware that you have arrived and ask that you put in the number of the spot you parked in and what color your car is. Soon after you park an associate walks out and asks the name on the order. That’s it! It’s a pretty simple process.
What If My Items Aren’t Available?
Walmart is pretty good at updating their inventory and it reflects on the grocery app. So the items shown on the app are normally in the store. There will be a few cases that it’s not and when those cases come up they will just substitute a similar brand.
Sometimes you may end up with a family size instead of a regular because they ran out of what you wanted before you got to the store. There is no extra charge for either one of these cases, and if it does happen they make sure you are aware before you leave the store.
Limits Impulse Buying
If you’re not in the store you can’t buy what you think you need. Your favorite dessert that you always cave in and buy won’t happen if you order online! Just make your grocery list and place the order through. No more tempting aisle candies to distract you and the kids.
Our son always checks out the candy row to see the latest candy wrappers or characters they are advertising. The candy is there for a reason, they know your eyes will be wondering while you’re waiting!
Stick to Your Budget
The Walmart Grocery app makes sticking to your budget easier because you're shopping online and know exactly how much you are going to spend. You can easily update and remove items from the shopping list with a swipe of your finger.
Insteaf of simply wandering around in the store and getting distracted by impulse purchases, you can see everything that's in your cart and your running total with the app. This makes it easy to stay on track and not overspend on your groceries.
