New Walmart feature rolling out: Store Pickup discount on select items

Starting April 19 (2017) Walmart will begin rolling out a new feature, if you select store pickup for a purchase, you may be able to get a small discount on the purchase price. In other words, they are paying you to do the delivery to yourself 🙂 This feature will slowly ramp up, they are planning to include 1 million items by the end of June. As usual, YMMV depending on product availability and location. This will be offered on the 48 contiguous US States.

I am guessing this is a feature that got inspired by the Jet team, which has all kids of nickle-dimer discounts on the Jet website (pay less if you forgo returns, pay less if you pay with debit card, pay less if you buy in quantity, etc). I don’t know if the other Jet features will make it to Walmart, but for now, if you are fond of store pickup, you may be able to save!

    A sobering reminder here for those of us who live in states with robust sales taxes because the citizenry would welcome in a round of Bubonic plague if it was a choice between that and even a 1 percent state income tax. If you’re price shopping, don’t forget to factor in the sales tax.

    • Taxes and more taxes, I’m surprised they are not taxing the taxes, another AMT alternative 🙂 I shouldn’t be giving them ideas!
