Walmart+ gift card is a way to acquire (or gift) the annual Walmart+ membership. The member will be able to enjoy some incredible perks offered by the retailer that save both time and money. The benefits are available for both in-store and online purchases and include speedy grocery deliveries, special pricing, and additional benefits for transactions conducted via the Walmart app.
What Are the Benefits of a Walmart+ Membership?
Walmart+ membership already offers a host of benefits, and the list is only expected to grow longer over time. On an annual level, these benefits translate to:
- 2.5 hours per week saved
- $84 per year saved on gas
- $816 per year saved on weekly grocery shopping
Check out some of the most notable perks you will enjoy as a Walmart+ member:
- Free delivery from your local stores—You get free same-day delivery of the chosen items, be it groceries, household items, or gadgets. There are over 180,000 items available for order
- Free shipping of items ordered on Walmart’s website—Your order will arrive the next day or within two days
- No order minimum—You can order as few or as many items as you want. If your order from a local store is below $35, though, you will need to pay a below order minimum fee, which is $5.99
- Early access to discounts and special deals—You will get to take early advantage of special promotions, including Black Friday deals
- Discounted fuel prices—You get to save 5 cents per gallon at Walmart and Murphy USA gas stations and enjoy member prices at Sam's Club fuel stations
- Mobile Scan & Go—You can shop and check out in stores using your phone. This ensures contactless checkout and reduces the time you spend at the cash register. If you install the Walmart app on your phone, you can scan the items you buy and pay using Walmart Pay (the app’s feature that enables you to make contactless payments in stores via payment methods saved in your Walmart account)
Where To Buy the Walmart+ Membership Gift Card and How Much Does It Cost?
Walmart+ membership gift cards are available on Walmart’s website. Like all other Walmart gift cards, they are non-returnable and non-refundable. The price of the Walmart+ gift card is $98, which is also the price of the annual membership.
Besides buying the gift card, you also have an option to sign up for a 30-day trial period, after which you can pay the annual membership fee of $98 or a monthly fee of $12.95. You don't get a trial period when you buy a gift card.
Keep in mind that if you decide to sign up for a membership, the only method of payment you can use is a credit card or a debit card. Walmart doesn't accept Walmart gift cards or Visa gift cards as a payment option for Walmart+.

Walmart+ Vs. Amazon Prime
Walmart+ is Walmart's response to the membership plan offered by its greatest rival—Amazon Prime. Admittedly, Walmart doesn't offer all the perks you can get by subscribing to Amazon Prime—for example, there is no video-streaming library, no gaming perks, etc. But we have to consider that Amazon has decades of experience in tweaking and improving its membership service. It resulted in the company gathering a whopping 200+ million Prime members all over the world while Walmart is still in its early years.
According to eMarketer, almost 40% of online retail sales in the US are done on Amazon, while Walmart takes second place with only slightly over 5% market share. With a strong offer and great prices, Walmart undoubtedly aims to reach the same numbers that Amazon boasts.
If you are in two minds regarding which option is more suitable for you, seeing what each of them has to offer side by side might help. Refer to the table below for the main features of Walmart+ and Amazon Prime memberships:
Free trial period
Next day delivery
Free grocery delivery
Yes, but for orders of $35 minimum
Yes, but there are varying order minimums
How Can You Use Walmart and Amazon Gift Cards?
There is one detail that scores Amazon some additional points. If you have an Amazon gift card, you can use it to pay for an Amazon Prime membership. You can choose whether you want to redeem your Amazon gift card on the Amazon website or use it to shop at a few other online retailers that accept these gift cards.
Walmart is a bit more restrictive. You can't use a Walmart gift card to pay for a Walmart+ membership, and you have fewer options to redeem these gift cards. Still, Walmart is a worthy opponent to Amazon, with countless shops and gas stations all over the country and an extensive selection of items on offer.
For that reason, Walmart gift cards are always great to receive. If you don’t expect anyone to surprise you with one any time soon, why not explore alternative ways to get free Walmart as well as Amazon gift cards? You can take part in giveaways, for instance, or increase your chances of winning by signing up for a free gift card app.
