Today I was in and out of Sam's Club AND Walmart in 20 min! I think that was a record. Although you will never see me and Wonder Woman in the same room (just saying!), this has nothing to do with my super powers. For the last few weeks, I have been taking advantage of Sam's Club Scan and Go App. I (or even better, my 6 year old) will scan items as I place them in the cart and then walk right out the store!! No line, No Hassle. You checkout right on the App and that's it. I thought this was the best thing in the world, UNTIL Walmart introduced their grocery pick-up.
As I was walking out of Sam's Club, I "checked in" on the Walmart grocery app to notify them I was on my way and by the time I had my Sam's Club purchases loaded in the car and pulled up to the loading zone, they were all ready for me. A quick signature on the phone like device and I was done. The best part was the incredible service. The gentleman who brought and packed my car was so nice. He explained that they had to substitute one of my items because they were out of stock, I purchased an 8 can pack of Tuna and they substituted it with two 4 packs, no big deal. They also made sure I was given the eggs to place where I want them. After the car was packed, he explained that everything is picked fresh for me, even if they have to go into to fridge and pull from stock that isn't on the floor yet. I also got a first time user goodie bag packed with sample products.. Yay!! FREE items. Speaking of Free.. They have a fab referral program. Basically if you want to save some time, you can save some money! We can both earn $10 if you check out this link and place your first order.
Ordering was super easy too. It was all done online while watching World of Dance. It also saves me from buying useless crap when I am walking the aisles in the store. I choose what I need and be done. AND since I ordered online, I got my 1% cash back on ebates.. Woohoo!! If your serious about saving money, I would check out Walmart's savings catcher too. It basically takes your receipt and scans the internet for lower prices and then gives you back the difference. BOOM! No more spending time going through all the grocery adds.
So what did I do with the hour I saved? I went home and laid in my hammock before the kids came home from school.
