It was pouring rain, Miss Cupcake was already in her pajamas, AND we desperately needed groceries. We are still struggling to adjust to the busy back-to-school routine. We are both exhausted by the evening, and grocery shopping is not at all an easy task with a tired preschooler. Thankfully, a few days earlier I had heard that there was a new service that would allow me to order groceries online and pick them up at Walmart. Although this service is not yet available at all locations, I did a quick search and was happy to see that pickup was available at several locations near me. I had placed an online order from the comfort of my couch for an entire weeks worth of groceries. The process was so quick and easy! I simply selected the items that I wanted ($35 minimum), chose my pickup location and reserved a one hour.timeframe of when I would like my groceries ready. I even received $10 off my first order of $50 or more with coupon code REALEASY (expires 11/1/16). Miss Cupcake was excited about getting to go for a ride in her pajamas, and I was excited that I would not have to haul her into the store. It sounded like a win-win situation to me! Since there is no additional fee for using Walmart's Grocery Pickup Service, I figured that there was nothing to lose by giving it a try!
I received a call from a friendly Walmart associate letting me know that my order was ready a few minutes before my scheduled time When we arrived at Walmart, I quickly located the designated Pickup area on the side of the store. The groceries were loaded into my trunk within a few minutes while Miss Cupcake and I relaxed in the car. Miss Cupcake was highly amused by the entire process and whispered, "Did you tell him we wanted bubble gum?" as the Walmart associate loaded our groceries. We made it back home for bedtime, and Miss Cupcake has lots of goodies (including fresh fruit) for her school lunch tomorrow.
We had a fantastic first experience with the Walmart Grocery Pickup Service! I am typically exhausted and a bit frazzled after grocery shopping with Miss Cupcake. Getting an entire week's worth of groceries without having to leave my car made me feel quite pampered. We will be using this service regularly.
See if a Walmart near you offers the Grocery Pickup Service.
