Walmart is Launching Free NextDay Delivery Without a Membership Fee (Take That, Amazon!)
With NextDay delivery, customers can choose from over 200,000 eligible items including diapers, laundry detergent, toys, and electronics (the specific assortment of eligible items may vary by customer location). Note that NextDay delivery will only be available on eligible orders of $35 or more.
NextDay delivery will be available first to Walmart.com customers in Phoenix and Las Vegas (we are jealous!) and will expand to Southern California in the coming days. It will roll out gradually over the coming months, with a plan to reach approximately 75% of the United States this year (this includes 40 of the top 50 major U.S. metro areas).
Here’s how NextDay delivery works:
Visit Walmart.com and toggle into the NextDay delivery experience to view items that are eligible for free NextDay delivery. This option will be slowly rolled out across the country in the months to come.
Add eligible items to your cart and proceed to checkout.
Everything in your cart must be eligible for NextDay delivery to qualify and cut-off times vary by location.
As we mentioned last week, Amazon recently rolled out Amazon Prime One-Day Shipping for millions of items. But in order to take advantage of this perk, you do need to be an Amazon Prime member which currently costs $119 per year. This seems like a pretty hefty price tag for one-day shipping, considering Walmart is offering up NextDay delivery for free!
