Is There A Walmart Senior Discount Or Senior Day?
Is there a Walmart senior discount or senior day?
Regrettably, there appear to be no official Walmart senior days or senior discounts.
However, while Walmart does not have nationwide senior discount programs, stores and restaurants located inside Walmart locations may have their own policies.
You should be able to find a full list of businesses operating at each Walmart location on the Walmart website.
Visit the Walmart store finder and plug in your ZIP code. As an example, let’s use 19804, which gives us locations near Wilmington, Delaware.
You’ll see a list of Walmart stores in the selected area. Find your nearest store and click “Details”. As an example, let’s use Walmart #5436.
At the top right of the popup window, click “Store Details”.
Under the “Store Overview” tab, scroll down until you see “Services, Hours & Contact Info”. This section contains a list of stores and restaurants operating within the selected Walmart.
Click “See all” at the bottom of the section. The particular store we selected has a Subway location.
We happen to have a senior discount guide on Subway – give it a read if you want.
In case you find any other store that interests you, you should check on our website or online if it has any senior discounts.
No Walmart Senior Discount? There Are Other Ways To Save!
Whether you find senior discounts at your Walmart or not, know that there are other ways to save. More below!
Clearance, rollbacks, & special buys
Clearance, rollbacks, and special buys are available on the Walmart website in a section called Savings spotlight. Here, you can find a wide range of deals.
If you didn’t know, clearance sales happen when a product is about to be out of season and when the store looks to quickly get rid of existing stock to free up space for new goods. In contrast, rollbacks are temporarily reduced prices on popular products.
In Walmart stores, clearance items are usually marked with yellow tags.
Rollbacks are often featured in Walmart weekly ads. You can find the current weekly ad for your store by visiting your store’s webpage (as outlined earlier) and navigating to the “Weekly Ad” tab. Aside from rollbacks, you may be able to find many other interesting deals in the weekly ad.
You may also find a wide array of coupons on your Walmart store’s webpage. Just navigate to the “Coupons” tab to see what’s available.
Select a few coupons and then click the blue “Print Coupons” button. If you’re using Walmart coupons for the first time, you’ll need to pass a verification process. You’ll be asked to enter your mobile number and will be sent a verification code.
Once you pass verification, you’ll be able to print the selected coupons. To redeem the coupons, take them with you to your local Walmart store.
If you are a frequent shopper at Walmart, consider investing in a Walmart+ membership. Launched in September 2020, Walmart+ costs $12.95/month or $98/year. You may start using Walmart+ with a 15-day free trial.
Walmart+ members get access to the following perks:
- Free next-day or two-day shipping with no order minimums.
- Free delivery from your store – as soon as on the same day. But there is an order minimum of $35.
- Reduced prices on fuel. Members save 5 cents per gallon at Walmart and Murphy stations. You also get access to special prices at Sam’s Club fuel centers.
- Mobile scan & go. With this benefit, you’ll be able to quickly check out with your phone in-store.
Keep in mind that terms and restrictions apply.
Walmart claims that the benefits of Walmart+ can save:
- 5 hours of time per week (based on 3 weekly store trips).
- $84 gas savings per year (based on 140 gallons per month per family & 16 miles consumed per gallon).
- $816 savings per year by getting weekly groceries with free delivery from your Walmart store (based on 2 deliveries per week).
You’ll need to figure out yourself if the membership fee is worth it. If you shop and refuel very frequently at Walmart, your savings should be able to cover the fee.
Walmart credit card benefits
In case you are looking for a new credit card provider, Walmart Rewards Card may be a good choice. You earn cash back with Walmart card purchases:
- 5% at Walmart.com, including pickup & delivery.
- 2% in Walmart stores & fuel stations, restaurants, and on travel.
- 1% elsewhere where Mastercard is accepted.
Aside from that, during the first 12 months, you’ll get 5% cash back when using the card with Walmart Pay (a method to pay with your phone).
The Walmart Rewards Card is issued by Capital One. The card has a $0 annual fee and an APR (annual percentage rate) of 17.99%, 23.24%, or 26.99%, depending on your credit history.
If you’ve never heard of no-fee credit cards, read our guide to find out more about their benefits.
Prescription discount cards
If you are often shopping for medicine at Walmart Pharmacy, you should think about getting a prescription discount card. A few options that you may look into include:
- AARP’s Rx discount card.
- SingleCare Walmart Prescription Discount Card.
- Easy Drug Walmart Discount Card.
If you do decide to get a card, make sure to read the fine print to know what you are dealing with.
Finally, make use of Walmart’s price matching policy when you can. If you find a product from an online retailer at a lower price than at Walmart.com, Walmart will lower the price (i.e. match it). Walmart will also price-match in-store prices with prices on Walmart.com.
There are some limitations though, including:
- Items must be completely identical.
- The item must be in stock at the competing online retailer’s website and on Walmart.com.
- Walmart price-matches with a limited list of Walmart alternatives, including Amazon, Best Buy, Walgreens, Lowes, Michaels, Newegg, and Dick’s Sporting Goods.
- In-store prices from competitors don’t count for the price matching policy.
- Stores in Alaska and Hawaii do not price-match.
There are many other limitations – have a look at them here.
