Walmart ‘Trying to Get Ahead’ of Amazon


Admittedly, I love a good online shopping spree, so this excites me. Big. Time.

Just two weeks ago, Amazon announced they would be upgrading the free shipping option for Prime members to ONE-DAY delivery from two-day delivery. Now, they haven’t put it in to action yet, but they’re working on it.

As of yesterday, though, Walmart is offering free next day delivery on over 200,000 items! If you live in the southwest region of the US, you can receive anything from diapers, food to electronics the next day. The retailer plans to roll out next day delivery to 75% of the United States by the end of the year.

With Amazon and Walmart stepping up with these kinds of shipping options, it’s only a matter of time before other online retailers step up.

Walmart CEO, Marc Lore, said ‘Customer expectations continue to rise. We’re trying to get ahead of that.’

Unless a robot delivers my cinnamon toothpaste and organic dry shampoo within 12-hours of my order, I refuse to pay for any kind of shipping! Give it all to me ASAP, just don’t charge me extra for it. -Taylor
