Disclosure: I tested out Walmart’s Online Grocery pickup service mentioned in this post, and received grocery shopping funds from Walmart in order to do so.
Have you tried Walmart’s online grocery shopping yet? Walmart Grocery pickup, is designed to save you time! You not only get the lowest prices but you can also avoid lines, crowds, and save your sanity… you know what I mean if you have to shop with kiddos!
Just place your order online, choose a time slot, and your order will be loaded directly into your car at your local Walmart! You can get your order as fast as the same day and they offer 2- to 4-hour windows for pickup. Pickup is free, with no charges or fees!
The site is easy to use. You can shop by what’s trending in your area, essentials, shopping history, or by department including home goods, items for pets, electronics, laundry, office, and more, it’s not just groceries. Or, if you happen to use the Walmart app, it highlights products inspired by your shopping history.
When you checkout, all you need to do so is select your local Walmart and the time you would like to pick up. The first time slot is 8-9 a.m. and the last pick-up time is 7-8 p.m.
When you pull into Walmart, you will see signs and lanes directing you straight to the dedicated pickup area. Once you pull in, there is a specific phone number for you to call to let them know you are in the waiting area.
When I went for pick up, there was one person in front of me so I did have to wait about 10 minutes. The manager came out to help load all the products into my car. Two of the items I ordered they happened to be out of. You do have the option when you order to have your items replaced with ‘like’ items if they happen to be out. I am particular, so I did not select that option. The manager went over the receipt with me and told me about those items.
The one downside is that there is no way to use coupons. Well, you could take the receipt back into guest services but that would defeat the purpose of curbside pickup! I am not sure how they could add that as a feature, but it would be nice to see if they could!
Another feature I would love to see is Walmart Grocery as an option on the Walmart app. As it is now, you have to visit the website. I would like to see everything all together, by logging into the app which I already use for the Savings Catcher and having an online pickup ordering tab.
