Walmart is trialing a new unlimited grocery delivery service

If I never have to step foot inside a Walmart again I’ll die happy.

Move over Instacart, Walmart is coming for ya.

The biggest of big-box stores is trialing a grocery delivery service, Walmart’s Delivery Unlimited. If the current $98 per year pricing is kept, that will make it the cheapest out of the big name delivery services.

Walmart Delivery Unlimited is well… unlimited delivery

Seriously. There’s no limit to how many times you can order in a year, or seemingly, how many items you need to order each time. It’s also a whole dollar cheaper than Shipt, which is the next-cheapest unlimited plan for grocery delivery at $99.

Instacart also cut its yearly fee to $99 recently, and the behemoth of Amazon Prime is still the most expensive at $119 (but you do get a lot for that extra $20).

  • Currently, Walmart is running pilots of the plan in Houston, Miami, Salt Lake City and Tampa (TechCrunch)
  • $98 per year gets you all the grocery delivery you can use, or it’s $12.98 per month
  • Walmart partners with delivery providers such as Point Pickup, Skipcart, AxleHire, Roadie, Postmates and DoorDash (it also had unsuccessful ones with Deliv, Uber, and Lyft)
  • Unlike Instacart, Walmart’s delivery service doesn’t appear to have any additional fees

I welcome more competition in the one-day delivery sector. That being said, I still won’t let Walmart into my house.
