Revolutionizing Grocery Shopping

Moms! MOMS! You’ve got to try this. It will change the way you grocery shop and thereby change your life! Two words: Walmart Grocery.Sept6001

I always do the majority of my grocery shopping at Walmart. I know where everything is located, you can’t beat their prices, and Walmart will price-match any lower advertised price. I also utilize their Savings Catcher app (scan your receipt, the app searches for lower advertised prices in your area, and you get the difference back on a Walmart e-gift card!).

I had seen these little orange signs in the parking lot of our Goodyear Walmart, and then dismissed them. Sept5002All that changed this past Saturday when I went to watch a video about The Pioneer Woman’s new dish collection {so cute! and also sold at Walmart}, and watched an ad about Walmart’s new online grocery shopping. I could not wait to try it! And it’s FREE.

Just this morning I successfully picked up my first Walmart Grocery order, and I am on Cloud Nine! By the way, Walmart has no idea who I am; I just am so excited that I can’t help but blog about this. (However, you and I will both get a $10 promo code if you register with Walmart Grocery using this link or any of the other Walmart Grocery links in this post.)

Here’s how it works:

  • Create an account at walmart.com/grocery
  • Reserve a pick-up time. The pick-up times are divided into 4-hour time slots, so there’s lots of flexibility.
  • Shop from the comfort of your couch at whatever time works best for your schedule.
    • Choose from almost any department in the store (including toiletries, paper products, crafts, baby items, pharmacy, and cleaning/laundry supplies).
    • Mark items as favorites to allow for faster shopping the next time.
    • Complete your order and check out within three hours. If you aren’t able to check out before the time limit, then your cart is saved, but your pick-up reservation expires. Simply log back in, and choose a new available pick-up time.
    • Check the box to allow substitutions for your items in case the exact ordered item is not in stock at your local store. This might result in some free upgrades to your order since they’ll charge you the lower price, but give you a comparable item. (I got Softsoap liquid hand soap for the Equate price!)
  • Receive a reminder call from Walmart a few minutes before your pick-up reservation 4-hour time slot begins.
  • Call to let the store associate know when you’re about 10 minutes away
  • Follow the grocery pick-up signs in the Walmart parking lot, and park your vehicle.
  • Sit in your car and let the Walmart associate put the groceries in your car without even unbuckling your children! (This is the BEST part.) The associate will go over your substitutions with you, and you can keep or remove those items. Substituted items are clearly marked.Sept5001
  • Drive home and unload your purchases.
  • Enter your receipt code in the Savings Catcher app or website to take advantage of possible lower advertised prices.

It’s amazing that I get someone else to shop for me–for FREE! The days of  wrangling little monkeys while trying to finish an enormous grocery run have just gotten a lot more scarce. Very convenient. A+ Walmart!
