The Walmart+ weekend has begun — check the watch — a few moments ago. Through Sunday, the big-box retailer’s response to Amazon Prime Day is offering exclusive savings for Walmart+ members on thousands of items, from appliances and outdoor furniture and toys to clothing and appliances (up to while stocks last, of course).
We’ve put together this handy guide to help you figure out if taking the plunge with a Walmart+ subscription is right for you. A Walmart+ subscription costs $12.95 per month or $98 per year (just under $14.99 and $139 for Amazon Prime) – and there’s currently a 30-day free trial that new members can use to take full advantage of Walmart + Weekend. We love a good hack like this.
A positive response to a taste of a sale is apparently a dealhunter’s dream. For this column, I’m highlighting the best deals available through Walmart + Weekend that you, our readers, have been most excited about. Read on, check out your list of summer must-haves, and strike while the iron is hot.
Shark Auto Empty Robot Vacuum Cleaner
Whether you’re about to start heading to the office after a long period of working from home, are back at work, or are still working from home – the last thing you want to have to do is vacuum constantly . At least that’s what I feel. This robot vacuum from Shark is $200 off and self-emptying. This little guy will accumulate about 45 days of dust in his base before you have to intervene. It is safe to use for sweeping up pet hair and long hair and won’t roll up either.
GE 10,000 BTU Portable Wi-Fi Air Conditioner
All signs point to a really hot summer. There’s no reason for you to suffer – this might just be the sign you needed to consider buying an air conditioner for your home. This “powerful” and “easy to assemble” AC unit boasts a 4+ star rating from Walmart reviewers. WiFi control is a nice bonus – you can adjust settings from anywhere in the house to your liking. Because the struggle of needing to get out of a perfectly organized bed burrito to deal with temperature screening doesn’t have to be a struggle.
Pit Boss Pellet Grill
For $100 off, you can get ready for that summer barbecue you’ve been putting off for the past three years. This grill features two cooking grates and a 540 square inch porcelain coated cooking surface as well as forced convection cooking so you can broil, smoke, bake, sear, barbecue or broil. pressing a button. Nearly 470 reviews on the Walmart site give it over 4 stars, with one reviewer calling it “the perfect pellet grill.”
Women’s Champion Lightweight Tee
Gen Z may have their opinion, but this cutting-edge millennial is hoping the alternative leisure trend is here to stay. Champion is one of the biggest brands to embrace the “good, comfortable, might as well be fashionable” trend. Instagram darlings, influencers and stars around the world now wear the logo with panache. So, it’s kind of nice to be able to get this sweet and simple t-shirt at over 50% off. Every piece of clothing I’ve purchased from Champion over the years (yes, even before it was cool) stays in my rotation until it wears out.
Michael Kors tote bag
$428 From $152.06
The classic Michael Kors tote is a must-have for anyone getting back into the on-the-go game — or at least trying to shore up their work situation. Seriously, who wants to bring three bags to the office anymore? Not only is it roomy – at 17″W x 11″H x 6.5″D it has plenty of room for your laptop, wallet and whatever else you might need for the day – but the silhouette and details MK are quite iconic. Marked down from its original list price of $428.00, it’s well worth the investment.
