On Friday, I mentioned that I had recently had a great experience with Walmart. Yes,
As part of a market research study, I was asked to try out Walmart Grocery Online. Over the course of a few days, I added items to my online cart, much like you do with any online shopping purchase (or the way I'd make a grocery list, if I were shopping in-store). I was able to find everything I was looking for, including some specialty items like flaxseed and a Keurig water filter refill. I found a coupon for $10 off my first purchase, so of course I used that! After I had everything added, I was able to select the store and pickup date and time.
Unfortunately, this service isn't available at my local Walmart Supercenter in Cranberry yet, so I had to drive abour 15 minutes to the Baden store, which really wasn't a big deal. In fact, the experience was so great I'd happily drive back there again to use the online pickup.
I received a confirmation email that explained what I needed to do. They said I'd receive a call 15 minutes before my pickup window (you get an hour) and then whenever I was about 10 minutes away, I could call them back and they'd have everything ready to go as soon as I arrived. It also included a map of the store outlining where I should go and park for online pickup.
As it turns out, I forgot a few items and also had some non-grocery items I needed to look for, so I went early to shop in the store. While I was shopping, I received a call from my personal shopper (shoutout to Ryan!) saying my order was ready and to call him back whenever I was 10 minutes away. As I was just getting into the checkout lane (with only 1 person in front of me), I called him back and he said he'd have everything ready to go.
I pulled into the designated space and within a minute or so, out came Ryan with a cart containing my items. He came around to the driver side and asked if I wanted to check any of the produce before he loaded the car. Everything was GREAT (and the spaghetti squash was HUGE). He had selected everything and prepared the order personally. He also verified that there had been no substitutions on my order (in certain cases, they may substitute an item for a similar item of equal or greater value).
He loaded everything into the back of my car and then asked if I'd like the loaf of Italian bread up with me so it didn't get smashed - super thoughtful! He also handed me a reusable shopping bag full of goodies, as a thank you for trying out the service! He also told me I could
(full disclosure, if you use my referral link, I get a $10 coupon too!).
I highly recommend this service. Everything was so easy. I can definitely see this being helpful to busy people or those with kids. I've read a few other reviews of the service online and many people have said
! It looks like you need to present them at pickup, or you can always take your receipt and coupons to customer service. You can also use the Walmart Savings Catcher app as well!
