Who doesn’t love a good membership or rewards program? No one, that’s who. And that’s why so many places have ’em—we all love getting free stuff, discounts, extra “exclusive” perks, etc. It’s especially worth it if it’s a membership to a place we visit often: honestly, sometimes those end up paying for themselves.

So we’re totally thrilled to learn Walmart is now offering a membership service, called Walmart+. If you’re a frequent Walmart-goer like us, it definitely seems like it’ll be worth the cost. Here’s what you should know.

What Is Walmart+ and What Does Joining Get Me?

Basically, Walmart+ was launched to compete with Amazon Prime—and oh boy, does it ever. If you’re used Instacart or other food-delivery services, you might consider adding Walmart+. It offers free same-day delivery on grocery orders. But that’s not all—this is same-day delivery on everything, not just food; garden supplies, bird feeders, toys and more. That one-ups Amazon Prime by a whole day. And get this: you can even get some orders in as little as two hours. Yes, please!

Subscribers can also get other perks like discounts on prescriptions, the ability to place orders and pay from their phones, and early access to promotions and online Black Friday deals.

How Much Does It Cost?

Unsurprisingly, it’s in the realm of Amazon Prime, but cheaper. If you want Walmart+, it’ll cost you $98 per year—or $12.95 per month. A 15-day free trial is also available, but keep in mind that not all Walmart+ perks are available unless you’ve paid for a membership.

To sign up, start your free trial or learn more, head over to the Walmart+ website.
