Money Walmart Will Pay You To Go Into Their Stores...Sort Of

Walmart is now giving online shoppers a discount to go into their store to pickup the items purchased online. The discount now applies to 10,000 items, but will include more than 1,000,000 items by the end of June.

Price cuts will vary depending on the product's size, cost and category, Marc Lore, president and CEO of Walmart.

"The point is that it's (discount) meant to be equivalent to what the last-mile delivery costs are," Lore said.

Last-mile delivery refers to the final step of the shipping process before it arrives on a customer's doorstep. It is the most expensive aspect of filling online orders, sometimes exceeding 50 percent of an item's total delivery cost, according to McKinsey & Company.

I've tried to shop online at WalMart before and found a large number of 3rd party sellers with items that were much more expensive than what was available in the store and no store pick up option for many items, like canning jars. AmericanExpress had a deal where you got an account credit for spending a certain amount via WalMart.com. After looking, I couldn't find anything that wasn't prohibitively expensive so I gave up. I'm surprised it's not more like Target.com. Maybe that will change with this new policy?

It would have to be a big discount. I've tried site to store pick up and every time there isn't anyone at the counter. Hit the screen for assistance and wait 20 minutes. Not worth it, hopefully other stores have a better experience.

Our store just put the pick up at the front of the store -- instead of making you walk all the way to the back of the store. They said that you could also just pull through the pickup line for groceries and they would bring your order out to the car.

It sounds like the stores in your area are lots nicer than the ones here. The people are generally really nice who work in the stores around here, but it's often hard to get someone to come to the desk where you pick up in store. I almost laughed when you said there's a pickup line for groceries. The Star Market in MA used to have those, they'd put your bagged groceries in a plastic bin, push it onto a conveyor and there would be staff to load them into your trunk when you got to the drive up area (you'd get a plastic panel with a number on it that corresponded to the number of the bin.

Here, there are few WalMarts and you really have to drive there, park, and go into the store. Nobody brings anything to you. I think there's a few SuperCenters about 50 miles away, but I haven't been to one since I left the Midwest.

That's really nice, my Walmart doesn't have an option for a pick up line.

Walmart grocery pickup is only available at some stores. I read recently that there were 600 Walmart stores that offered it and the goal is 80%. From what I read is that you place your order online before 10 AM for same day pickup; pickup is between 8 AM and 8 PM, and you have to buy a minimum of $30.

How well is it manned? I don't know, I haven't seen one of the new drive through pickup areas. If properly manned, and not used as an outlet for their lesser quality or close date meats, produce, dented cans and damaged boxes, I could see it doing well.

The pickup area at the two Walmart stores that I go to is at the back of the store, and I have yet to ever see an employee back there except during Christmas layaway.

They just put the pickup lines at the side of the store. You call them when you get there and they bring your order out.
