The Walmart Plus membership costs just $98 a year if paid annually (less than the $139 Amazon Prime annual membership).

How Walmart Plus works

You can join Walmart Plus by going to the online sign-up page. If you pay monthly, you’ll be charged $12.95, which equals $155 a year. But if you purchase an annual membership, the cost is just $98 (plus tax). 

Trial membership: For a short time, you can start out with a free 30-day trial membership and get $50 Walmart Cash when you do. Outside of the great benefits, it’s worth noting that you won’t receive a refund if you cancel your Walmart Plus membership before the end of the paid period.

Other perks that come with a Walmart Plus membership

Plus, for a limited time, track your budget, get spending insights and set goals — on the Monarch personal finance app. Get three free months of CLEAR Plus, and $20 off pet care with Thumbtack.

Also, if you are receiving government assistance — SNAP, WIC, Medicaid & more — check out Walmart+ Assist for 50% off your membership or $6.47/month or $49/year.

All in all, if you live near a Walmart store, frequently have your items delivered or purchase gas once a week, a Walmart Plus annual membership can easily be worth the cost. But if you’re still unsure, consider opting for the 30-day free trial

Also, if you have a rewards credit card that offers cash back on grocery and gas purchases, be sure to link it to your Walmart Plus account and get additional savings.
