Walmart Pick up

Did you know that you can order online at Walmart and pick up your groceries? A friend of mine had mentioned it to me about a month ago. Then I received a $10 off coupon in the mail to try it. So  - I figured, "why not?"

Here's the thing about Walmart. I like their prices. But I HATE going into the store. It is usually crowded and I can't stand the whole process of going in there if I just need a few things. The cash register line takes forever, and I just would rather throw up my arms and run into Hannaford. When I do go to Walmart, I usually shop there for items like detergent, soap, toilet paper, and paper towels. So when I saw this online coupon and I realized I didn't have to actually enter the store  - it was a win-win for me!

I logged on to their web site, and I found it very easy to search for the items I needed and put them in my shopping cart. For the first go-around, I just purchased toothpaste, laundry detergent, cereal, chips, and some other random items. I entered my $10 coupon code and entered my payment information and then I chose my pick up date and time frame.

When it was time to pick it up, I received a phone call and an email saying that my order was ready.

When I arrived at Walmart, I wasn't sure where to go at first. But, never fear - how could I miss the big orange wall that said "PICKUP" in big letters.

Not to mention, there were orange signs all over directing me to the pick up location.
I pulled into the pick up parking spots and there was a phone number to call. However, I chose to download the app and just hit the "check in" button. Right away, the app told me that someone would be right outside with my groceries.

I didn't have to wait long. Within 4 minutes, a nice young man came out with my order. He introduced himself to me, shook my hand, and loaded my car. He also gave me a nice welcome bag that was full of fun products like gum, granola bars, and other samples of detergent, garbage bags, and fruit chews.
My welcome bag also had an American Flag in it since today is the Fourth of July.

My experience was seamless, and I will definitely be utilizing this in the future. If you would like to try it, go to


We will both get $10 off!
