I feel like it was just winter last month so when July rolled around I started to brainstorm some road trips that might be fun for the summer. I wanted to plan something that’s relatively close but also something out of my comfort zone. When a friend of mine suggested camping, I was a little skeptical but then decided, “why not!?” and figured it would be the ultimate Fourth of July weekend plan to go camping!
If you know me you know I’ve been talking about how much I love my Walmart+ membership and I was so excited to see a tent, and virtually everything else you need for camping (things like blow up air mattresses and pump, etc) available for local delivery or free two-day shipping on Walmart+! If you’re not familiar with Walmart+, let me explain the difference between “free shipping” and “free delivery.” The free delivery from the store is a benefit that I use to order things like my groceries (or in this case my camping essentials – all the snacks!) or over the counter medicine which I always like to have on hand, ($35 minimum, restrictions apply). The free shipping from Walmart.com is what I use to order things for around my house like my patio bistro set or my garden stool, (but excludes freight and Marketplace items).
Unfortunately, we ended up getting rained out for Fourth of July weekend and I didn’t get to go on my little camping getaway. I didn’t want all of my recent purchases to go to waste so I decided to set up my tent on my patio and have a “glamping” session in my home! I’m definitely still planning to utilize my camping gear for a proper trip but in the meantime I’m so glad I was able to order what I needed thanks to my Walmart+ membership! The free delivery from my local store really came in handy when I decided to order all the s’mores goodies and snacks.
The free delivery and shipping aren’t the only benefits of a Walmart+ membership. If you’re comfortable going into stores nowadays you can take advantage of Mobile Scan & Go, which lets you shop in the store and check out directly from your phone. You just scan, pay and can be on your way! An added perk with a Walmart+ membership is you can also get member prices on fuel. You can save 5 cents per gallon at Walmart, Sam’s Club and Murphy fuel stations. Every little bit adds up – especially when you’re filling up. The incentives were all there and I’m so happy I made the choice to join!
