Walmart Grocery Pick-Up Service

Hi friends!  Today, I've decided to write a post about the Walmart Grocery Pick-Up Service.  I wrote a post about Amazon Prime Now/Sprouts delivery that went really well but I've noticed that every time I go into the app, the minimum order amount seems to be going up.  I think it's now a minimum of $50 to get Sprouts delivered.  It's $100 for Raley's to deliver or do pick up without a fee.  I wanted to showcase a lower cost option.  The minimum for Walmart is $30.  (This is NOT a sponsored post.)

You first start out by picking out your groceries online.  You can select a 1 hour window to pick up your groceries.  You can also get things beyond groceries such as personal care, health, pet items, etc... but the whole store is not available for this specific service.  The store I was ordering from has a full grocery section.  The ones that offer this service probably all do.  There were a lot of things that I'd never purchased at Walmart before so that was exciting!

When your order is ready to be picked up, they send you an email.  You can also opt to get text messages too.  They also provided a diagram telling you where you should pick up.  At my location, there were plenty of spots and they were out of the way from the rest of the parking lot which was really nice.  When you get to the parking lot, you can either call or check in on their Walmart Grocery App.  I got the app since I think I will be using this service a lot.  A person comes out with your groceries in crates and will bag them in your own reusable if you want.  You also have the option to buy buys if you don't have any.

For my order, there was also a list of substitutions that were emailed to me.  I was pleasantly surprised with Walmart in this sense.  For the items that needed substitutes, they gave me the same amount if not more.  For example, I ordered a Rice Krispie Treats 8 pack for $1.98.  They were out of stock so they replaced it with a 40 piece and gave me the $1.98 price!  I have had issues with other services trying to give me less product like ONE half gallon of milk instead of a full gallon.  I appreciate that Walmart is willing to give me the same if not more!  This is important to me!  Also, when I go there, the lady loading my groceries asked me if I was ok with all the substitutions so I could have turned them down at that point.

Now, onto produce.  This is where I'm always weary.  I know that a box of cereal will be fine no matter where I order it from but produce, who knows?  I ordered some loose produce and some packaged.  We have no complaints about any of the items.  Everything showed up in tact.  Everything tastes great.  You cannot make any requests though.  You buy the produce by the pound, each, or package.  There's no place to make a comment like "we like green bananas."

I also ordered other items like some candy for Valentine's Day.  I liked the option of buying holiday stuff since the kids would see it if I took them to the store.  This way, it's a surprise.  I also bought things like dried pasta, pasta sauce, bread, yogurt, etc... I didn't photograph all of it because it was a HUGE haul and would have taken me forever to stage.  Everything was good and showed up in tact.

Overall, I will order from Walmart again.  When my kids are on break, it is almost impossible for me to go to the store and remember everything on my list.  This is a great option!  I also like that the minimum is $30.  If you are sick and just need some medicine and soup, you can do this without having to pay an extra fee for the service.  If you'd like to receive $10 off your first order, please email me and I will send you a referral.  Or leave a comment with your email address and I will not post it publicly.  (If you do this, I also get $10 off an order.  Thank you for any support you show my blog!)
