Sometimes, you just need to give yourself a break. One way to do that, even with a packed schedule, is by taking advantage of Walmart’s free curbside pickup service to get your groceries and other goods without even going in the store. Instead of rushing through the aisles and waiting in the checkout line, you can spend your time with your feet up on the couch or actually enjoying dinner with your family while someone else shops for you. 

Walmart offers free curbside pickup on most online orders. Simply place your order and choose when you’d like to pick it up. If you place your order by 3 p.m., you can pick up your order as soon as same-day or choose another day and time that’s more convenient for you. 

If you have yet to try it out, here’s how to take advantage of the free pickup option. First, sign into your Walmart account or create one if you have yet to do so (it’s free!). Next, in the top left corner of Walmart’s website, select the “Pickup & Delivery” option. Once you’re on the page, input your address and choose pickup. Then, reserve a pickup time and start putting things in your shopping cart. You’ll still get the same everyday low prices you see in Walmart’s stores, and curbside pickup is completely free. There are no additional fees or costs.  

Once your order is placed, a Walmart-certified personal shopper will start shopping in-store for you, selecting the freshest items on your list. And when you arrive for your pickup, they’ll bring your order right out to your car.  

Of course, if you don’t even have time to drive to the store, you can also choose to get your order delivered — and you don’t even have to be home at the time of delivery.  

Yahoo Mail users can also take advantage of Walmart’s pickup and delivery services right from their inbox. If you have a Yahoo email address, once signed into your account, you’ll see a Walmart banner at the top of your inbox. Click the banner and search for anything you need: groceries, kitchen gadgets, cleaning supplies, home goods and more. You can add things gradually over time and place your order from your inbox when you’re ready.  

If you want to save time to do the things you love, or just need a break from the usual hustle and bustle, Walmart makes it easy to get your groceries and more fast.
