If you’re out running errands or on your way home from work, you can save yourself at least half an hour by taking advantage of Walmart’s free curbside pickup

Walmart offers free curbside pickup on online orders, so you can get your groceries and other goods without even going into the store. Skip finding a parking spot, wandering the aisles and waiting in the checkout line — simply place your order online and choose when you’d like to pick it up.

It’s super easy to do. First, sign into your Walmart account or create one if you have yet to do so. Next, in the top left corner of Walmart’s website, click the “Pickup & Delivery” option. Once you’re on the page, insert your address and choose pickup. Then, reserve a pickup time. You can choose to pick up your groceries on the same day as your order is placed if you order by 3 p.m., or choose another day and time that’s best for you. (If you don’t want to drive to the store, you can also choose to have your order delivered.)

Once you’ve chosen your pickup time, you can shop as usual and add things to your online cart. You’ll still be able to take advantage of Walmart’s everyday low prices, and pickup is free — there are no additional fees or costs. 

If you have a Yahoo Mail account, you can also take advantage of Walmart’s pickup and delivery services right from your inbox. Once you’re signed into your email, 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, holiday gifts and more. You can add things gradually over time and place your order without leaving your inbox. 

It’s easier than ever to get your groceries and goods when you want them thanks to Walmart’s convenient pickup and delivery options.
