The Arnold house is surviving on all things that make life easier during this newborn baby life stage! We’ve used Walmart’s Online Pickup & Delivery service for four years now – notice how that coincides with Ivy Jean’s arrival. 😉 Since the pandemic started, I don’t think there has been a week we’ve missed scheduling our order. In collaboration with Walmart, I wanted to share how to use Walmart’s Online Pickup & Delivery plus why we love it.
How to Use Walmart’s Online Pickup & Delivery Service
If you are new to the grocery pickup system, Walmart makes it super easy! $35 minimum and small delivery fee apply. Pickup and Delivery available in select markets. Here’s everything you need to know:
- Order items through grocery.walmart.com or through the blue Walmart mobile app – we use the app!
- Select your pickup time based on your availability
- Check-in via the app when your order is ready
- Drive to your store and park in the designated pickup spots
- Wait for an associate to bring your contactless pickup to you (receipt via email/app)
Why We Love Walmart’s Online Pickup & Delivery Service
Hands down the main reason I love ordering groceries is the ease, especially when it comes to saving time as a mom. I remember trying to take Ivy Jean in as a toddler one week when we didn’t schedule a pickup. She refused to sit in the cart and tried to touch everything on the shelves. It’s been online ordering ever since! Not to mention, I don’t come out with snacks I hadn’t planned on. Ha!
Lately the primary reason we love Walmart’s Online Pickup & Delivery Service is because of the completely contactless pickup. We check-in, drive up, open our trunk, stay in the car while the groceries are loaded, close the trunk from inside our car, and drive home with everything we need!
Another reason we love Walmart as opposed to other places is because they have groceries AND other items like toiletries and cleaning supplies. This saves us from having to make two orders/stops.
One of my favorite things is being able to start a pickup and add things throughout the week as I think of them. No keeping lists since it’s all stored on the app – mom win! The app also allows you to save favorite items you order regularly. It makes it really fast to go through and add all your essentials each time.
One thing I was unsure about when we started using the ordering service was not getting to select my own items, especially produce. I’ve found the associates often pick better items than I would have! Especially when it comes to avocados. 😉 Can anyone else not pick an avocado to save their life?! If anything is out of stock, they will substitute an item of equal or better quality for you. If you’d prefer not to have this done, you can select no substitutions on items or reject the substitution. Many of you all know that I eat a plant based vegan diet, so produce makes up the bulk of our grocery orders. I couldn’t handle bad fruits and veggies!
