Walmart have announced the arrival of Walmart+ Weekend, an online savings event exclusively for Walmart+ members that stretches over three days.
The sales event starts on Thursday, the 2nd of June with the deals ending on Sunday, the 5th of June. It’s hard not to compare this with Amazon Prime Day which we expect to be held in July, so Walmart with their earlier date are getting in first.
Like Prime Day, Walmart+ Weekend is a membership sales event, so you’ll have to join Walmart+to get access to the deepest discounts on thousands of the hottest summer items, from a Shark vacuum to a Minnie Mouse playhouse and Samsung Galaxy S7. On top of the deals, customers who sign up in a Walmart store during Walmart+ Weekend and become a paid Walmart+ member will get a $20 promo code off their next online purchase.
Our Walmart+ members loved early access to our Black Friday events, so we were inspired to create an entire weekend dedicated to the best deals. Giving members more of what they want with exclusive, unprecedented Black Friday-like savings allows us to celebrate our members in a fun, new way.– Chris Cracchiolo, senior vice president and general manager, Walmart
To help spread the news about Walmart+ Weekend, they are taking a new approach with their incredible deals during a time when customers have been craving fun and comedic relief. Walmart will be sharing videos from celebrity comedians to share “what’s the deal” featuring the hottest deals of the event. Jim Gaffigan, Ken Jeong, Franco Escamilla and Iliza Shlesinger will be sharing their hot takes on the deals via social during Walmart+ Weekend.
Walmart+ membership doesn’t just unlock savings on the products everyone is trying to get their hands on. Once customers fill up their shopping carts on Walmart.com, their total shipping cost is ZERO – during Walmart+ Weekend and any other time. Walmart.com shipping is always free for Walmart+ members, no matter how big or small the order is.
Walmart+ is just $12.95 a month or $98 a year. For more information about Walmart+ or how to become a member, visit walmart.com/plus.
