Fellow procrastinators, get in here. I just found out that Walmart is offering free shipping before Christmas if you order before 2 PM on December 21, and I can now officially stop panicking about not getting all of my Christmas gifts on time.
With perks like rapid shipping and in-store pickups, Walmart has undoubtedly become the champion of this holiday season. The retailer certainly gave Amazon a run for its money when it came to the best Cyber Week deals last month, and they’ve continued to do an outstanding job at servicing customers, through their upgraded holiday shopping, shipping, and return policies throughout the season.
They’ve even managed to stay ahead of the game when it comes to last-minute Christmas shipping, and I couldn’t be more relieved. I’ve been all over the internet trying to find the best gifts for dad, the best gifts for her, and the best stocking stuffers, and Walmart has literally been my go-to for it all.
As the Christmas countdown continues to have me and my last-minute Christmas to-do list in a race against the clock, I’ve learned that Walmart not only offers rapid shipping but also some of the best deals of the season. Check out this banner from their website below, which highlights their last-minute holiday shipping policy.
If you’re like me and need your Christmas gifts like yesterday, Walmart also has a pretty stellar buy online, pick up in-store option where you can shop from your laptop or phone and then drive up, and they’ll bring your items out to your car. I mean, it honestly doesn’t get any better than that. These shipping and pick-up options are free for all customers with a purchase of $35 or more, but Walmart Plus customers are privy to even more with a membership.
With additional perks like free access to Paramount Plus and an extended return period, I’m thinking it may finally be time to consider getting a Walmart Plus membership myself.
Back in October, Walmart revealed its new 90-day “no concerns” return policy, along with faster delivery, and added truck drivers for the holiday season. And this year, Walmart Plus subscribers were also offered early access to Walmart’s best Cyber Week sales hours before they were released to the public.
Right now, they’re offering a free 30-day Walmart Plus trial membership which is certainly worth considering if you’ve found yourself in a pinch to find the best holiday gifts, and the best part is that you can cancel it at any time.
Walmart’s commitment to service this holiday season has been so great that even loyal Prime members should consider making Walmart their destination for last-minute Christmas shopping. I’ve honestly found deals just as good, if not better than Amazon, such as the AirPods Pro 2 and Bissell Little Green Machine, which are currently at their lowest prices with shipping in two days or less.
Check out some of Walmart’s best deals below and remember that many will ship free and arrive before Christmas if ordered by December 21.
