Get Walmart to Be Your Personal Grocery Shopper
You will be amazed how convenient Walmart Grocery Pickup is.
I wrote about this service when it first came to my town a few months ago.
You can read my original post, “Walmart’s Online Grocery Service Review” to get the whole shpiel.
Walmart Service Is Here!
The Walmart closest to me didn’t have the service initially, so I had to drive further to try it out, but I was determined to check it out.
I knew the days were numbered when I would finally have the service come to my personal Walmart, about 4 miles away.
And it has!
In fact MY Walmart experienced the busiest “first day” of grocery pickup than any other Walmart starting up the service.
Tip for Making Your List
I’ve discovered that I can use their online service to keep my running list.
I need eggs, peanut butter, and bread.
Okay- I go online and just add them all to my list.
I can add (and delete) things all week long until I decide my list is ready to be totaled up and picked up.
The items are automatically saved as soon as I add them to the list.
So instead of making my list on paper, I just add it online as I go.
Substitutions on Your List
Once you have your list compiled there is a place for you to indicate whether you would allow a substitution for that item.
I didn’t know this at first.
For example, I needed tomato puree for a specific recipe I have, and puree is really what I needed. Nothing else.
When I showed up they informed me they were out of puree and could substitute tomato sauce instead, which wouldn’t work for me.
You can then either accept or decline their suggested substitution before totaling out.
Maybe you want “Jif Natural Peanut butter” but you would be fine with a different brand as a substitution.
If that’s the case, then perhaps if they were out of Jif they would show up with Skippy Natural Peanut Butter instead.
It’s a comparable item, and you could be just as happy.
So when you’re finalizing your list at home online, you can scan the list and indicate if a substitution would work or not.
Don’t fret the produce selection.
If you’re afraid to order produce cause you don’t think they’ll select “good apples” or “ripe avocados” then have no fear.
They will show you the produce they picked before totaling you out.
You Can Still Use the Savings Dashboard
Are you using the Walmart Savings Dashboard where you plug in your receipt and they give you money back for anything cheaper at other stores?
If not, then you’re missing out on free money.
Walmart does a price comparison for you and gives you money if they find a cheaper price somewhere else.
I wrote about it in my post, “How I Save Money Without Even Trying.”
Well, even if you use Walmart’s Grocery Pickup, you can still plug the receipt into the savings dashboard to get some money back.
I’m telling you, I can’t find a down-side to using this pickup service.
Walmart Grocery Pickup
It’s here to stay, folks!
Get in line- it’s the latest shopping rage for grocery stores.
They’re all competing for the busy lives of us all, and so far Walmart’s Grocery Pickup Service is the least expensive.
The items are still the same price as if you went in the store, AND there are no additional shopper/delivery fees.
Other stores can’t say that.
I highly recommend you check it out, and first timers get $10 off.
You’ll see the code when you go online to get started.
All I know is that Andrew at Walmart just might be my personal shopper EVERY week, and he’s gonna know me by my first name before long!
