Walmart, to better compete with Amazon Prime, is adding more perks to its Walmart+ program. The latest addition, Rx for less, offers discounts on thousands of prescriptions - a handful of them are even free in most states.
In addition to Rx for less, Walmart+ also offers unlimited same-day delivery for 160,000 grocery items, tech products, and household essentials and a cheaper annual subscription fee of $98 a year compared to Prime's $119 price.
Previously, Walmart shoppers had to pay for shipping on orders that fell below $35, but Walmart+ subscribers can now get free shipping on all orders no matter the price. The only exception is grocery orders, which will still require a minimum spend of $35 to ship for free.
Below, you'll find answers to frequently asked questions about how Walmart+ works, what kinds of perks are included, how much it costs, and more.
How much does Walmart+ cost?
Walmart+ costs $98 a year, undercutting Amazon Prime's $119 annual subscription fee. A monthly subscription cost $13 for both services. Interested shoppers can take advantage of a 15-day free trial.
What does it offer?
Walmart+ offers subscribers free same-day delivery on select products, member-exclusive gas prices, and most recently, discounts on prescriptions.
Shoppers can expect unlimited same-day delivery for 160,000 grocery items, tech products, and household essentials, like Amazon's Prime Now service - no shipping minimum required.
If you need your Walmart orders delivered fast, Walmart+ members can utilize two-hour Express Delivery for just $10. Non-members must pay an additional delivery fee on top of the $10 Express Delivery fee.
In-person shoppers, Walmart+ subscribers can use the Scan & Go feature on Walmart's app, for touch-free checkout. Members can also save up to five cents per gallon at 2,000 Walmart, Murphy USA, and Murphy Express gas stations.
Walmart also recently added Rx for less to the lineup, which offers members up to 85% off thousands of prescriptions at Walmart pharmacies. This specific perk is unavailable to free trial users.
How does it compare to Amazon Prime?
Walmart+ may beat Amazon Prime's price, but it's surprisingly light on perks when compared in a head-to-head.
Amazon Prime offers subscribers access to hundreds of movies and TV shows on Prime Video with exclusive access to Amazon Original content like "The Boys" and "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," music streaming through Amazon Music Unlimited, cloud photo storage, access to eBooks, and so much more. It remains to be seen if Walmart+ will offer shoppers more than discounts on gas and delivery perks.
