I had grandiose images of price comparing and spotting the best deals, when Walmart gave me a $45 eGift card a few weeks back. They asked if I’d like to try out their new Home Free shipping offer that gives free shipping on orders $45+ of apparel and/or consumables. I imagined I’d check Walmart’s prices against Amazon, Soap.com, Alice.com and others, then point you to some of the very best deals I could find.
But, life happened. We were dangerously close to running out of toilet paper and my husband informed me that he was out of razor refills. *sigh* I completely overlooked getting him razors this summer, when they were near-free numerous times, because I thought we had enough on hand. Toilet paper, well, as my kids get older it seems that we flush it at light speed. That said, I set aside my grand plans of price comparing and opted to stock up on some family essentials – 24 rolls of toilet paper and 16 expensive-no-matter-where-you-buy-them-this-time-of-year razor refills.
I’ve often used Walmart.com’s site-to-store shipping, which is free with no minimum purchase. Between that, Pick Up Today, FedEx Site-to-Store and this latest shipping offer, Home Free, more than 95% of the items at Walmart.com can reach you without a shipping fee.
