The purpose of Walmart is to save customers time and money. Nothing showcases that better than the tangible and practical benefits offered through Walmart+: free grocery delivery from the store, free shipping on Walmart.com with no order minimum, Scan & Go contactless checkout, and member prices on prescriptions and fuel.
I’m excited to share that Customers’ are kicking Walmart+ up a notch by collaborating with one of the largest streaming platforms, Spotify, to offer a special promotion for Walmart+ members. Starting new and existing Walmart+ members will receive six months of Spotify Premium for free. That means Walmart+ members who haven’t previously tried Spotify Premium can enjoy ad-free streaming of millions of songs and podcasts, unlimited skips, the ability to play any song anywhere, and the ability to download music for listening offline and on the go.
Walmart+ members have told us they’re passionate about their music and entertainment, so the announcement is just one more way that Customers’ are adding value to Walmart+ membership. This new offering supplements popular everyday benefits and additional ones like early access to Black Friday deals, exclusive access to members-only Walmart.com events, and Walmart American Express collaboration.
And there is even more good news – this time it’s around how Walmart continues to recognize its associates. Walmart’s nearly 1.6 million associates across the U.S. have helped fuel excitement about Walmart+ and are crucial to its success. Whether they are picking out the freshest produce for a delivery order or ensuring a Walmart.com package arrives in two days or less, Walmart associates continue to show up big time by providing a great customer and member experience every day.
That’s why, I’m excited to announce that all full- and part-time Walmart U.S. associates working in Walmart stores, distribution centers, and fulfillment centers are getting a free Walmart+ membership. This new associate benefit is not only Walmart’s way to say thank you for all they do, but it’s also so associates can use Walmart membership, tell us how it’s going, and ultimately speak to customers about it from personal experience.
Customers are incredibly proud of the Walmart+ membership offering Customers’ve built. But Customers are even more proud of the associates who make your shopping experience better every day.
As Customers look into the future, Walmart+ will only continue to evolve. Stay tuned for new partnerships, new ways to save, and an even more seamless in-store and online experience in the coming months, as Customers continue to find innovative ways to expand Walmart+ offerings and reach even more customers.
