June 29, 2016 - As we celebrate Independence Day and the weeks that follow, we have some exciting things coming. You’ll want to make sure you’re checking in frequently on Walmart.com or the Walmart mobile app.
But, starting today, I’m excited to let you know that we’re offering a free 30-day trial of ShippingPass, which gives you unlimited two-day shipping. If you already have ShippingPass, there’s also good news -- we’re going to give you an extra month for free, so look out for an email. ShippingPass is about half the price of similar programs out there at just $49 a year, and customers who are using it, love it. They shop on Walmart.com more often to take advantage of our low prices, fast shipping and added benefits of no minimum order requirements and free online or in-store returns. Once you start using it, it’s hard not to notice the everyday low prices on the stuff you need and want.
Walmart is known for everyday low prices, and when we have a special price, it isn’t just for a fleeting moment. Our rollbacks typically last 90 days or longer while supplies last. Starting July 1, and in the following weeks, you’re going to see some amazing items at great prices kicking in.
In the spirit of Independence Day, the prices we’ll be offering will be available for anybody: Liberty and Low Prices for All. Just remember, if the day you shop with us ends in a “y”, you’ll be saving.
We have some other ways we’re going to connect our app, site and store for customers in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
