Walmart introduces unlimited grocery delivery plan

The service is an expansion of the company's existing delivery and pickup efforts and costs $98 a year.

We aren't sure if it's already live nationwide, but there is a FAQ page talking about some details, though, including a line that reads "There's a good chance Delivery Unlimited is in your area".

For example, Walmart has now launched Delivery Unlimited, a subscription service costing $98 a year or $13 a month. Shoppers can pick up orders for free at almost 3,000 stores or pay $9.95 per order for delivery from around 1,000 locations.

Of course, this discussion would not be complete without noting the same-day shipping options that Walmart is offering.

The service is useful for those who did not want to leave their house or don't have time to go out for shopping. Depending on the usage, each food order comes with a flat shipping fee somewhere between $5 and $10.

The organization previously offered a delivery service for online requests: clients could have things shipped to their nearest store for free, or to their home for a $9.95 delivery fee for each order.

To shop from the Walmart grocery app, you have to build a basket and pick a time slot for your order.

Walmart is now offering an unlimited grocery delivery plan for shoppers, according to TechCrunch. Under the new Delivery Unlimited option shopper can opt to pay $12.95 per month for unlimited deliveries. The annual fee is priced competitively with Amazon Prime Now ($119 per year), and Target's Shipt service and Instacart's annual subscription (which are both $99 per year). If Delivery Unlimited is already live across the USA, you can check out this service. Prime also includes free delivery on millions of non-grocery items and access to Prime Video, ebooks, and more.

Unlike, some of the grocery delivery services Walmart doesn't operate its own network of delivery professionals or independent contractors. Walmart now uses third-party companies like DoorDash and Roadie to ferry groceries from its stores to shoppers' homes.
