Walmart Unveils $98-A-Year Subscription Service

Walmart on Tuesday unveiled a subscription service that will go toe-to-toe with Amazon Prime. The $98-a-year Walmart+ membership plan includes free shipping on items $35 and over, including same-day deliveries on certain items from stores, such as groceries. Members will also get 5-cent-per-gallon discounts on gasoline and the ability to scan items with the Walmart app while they shop in physical stores (and pay without waiting in a checkout line). Walmart called the new Walmart+ service the “ultimate life hack.” It will replace Delivery Unlimited, which cost the same amount but was limited to about a quarter of the 4,700 stores that will ship items to Walmart+ customers.
