Walmart Begins direct-to-fridge delivery service with One Million U.S Customers
Customers will also need to pay a monthly subscription fee of $19.99 for unlimited deliveries with a $30 minimum spend.
Walmart's long-awaited inhome Delivery option is said to be in beta mode and being offered to over 1 million customers in the Kansas City area, Pittsburgh, PA, and Vero Beach, Florida. The service will allow a camera-equipped Walmart associate to enter your home and stock your fridge with your grocery purchases. Associates will be able to gain access to your home and deliver your groceries even when you are not at home. A service that could prove invaluable to those who live very busy lives.
Interested customers will first need to pay a $49 fee in order for Walmart to install the Level Home smart lock or the Nortek garage door tech its associates need to get into your abode. Customers will also need to pay a monthly subscription fee of $19.99. The current promotion offers a one-month free trial.
Consumers will have to spend at least $30 on their grocery purchases to qualify for inHome delivery. Unlimited deliveries are also part of the deal.
