A Walmart+ membership just got a bit more valuable for drivers. Walmart is now offering discounted gas for Walmart+ members at 14,000 select gas stations across 48 states in the U.S. Here’s a quick guide to finding participating gas stations and how to claim your discount.
Before we get to that, this is the first time we’ve actually written about Walmart+. So, here’s a quick synopsis of what Walmart+ is — and how you can get it for no cost.
What is Walmart+?
Walmart+ is Walmart’s membership program. The program regularly offers free grocery delivery, free shipping on Walmart.com orders with no minimum spend, Scan and Go contactless checkout, and discounted gas at Walmart and Murphy stations.
For what it’s worth, members can also claim a free six-month membership for Spotify if they haven’t signed up before.
Cardholders of The Platinum Card® from American Express can claim a free Walmart+ membership — valued at over $155 annually. A statement credit of $12.99 plus applicable taxes will be applied in any month a member charges the Walmart+ membership to their card. Enrollment is required for select Amex benefits.
Walmart+ Discounted Gas Promotion
Now, Walmart announced that Walmart+ members will now also get a discount at select gas stations:
- Fill up at participating Exxon or Mobile gas stations to receive a discount of 10 cents per gallon
- Fill up at Walmart or Murphy gas stations to receive a discount of 5 to 10 cents per gallon. The exact discount is dependent on local state laws.
- Access members’ prices at Sam’s Clubs fuel centers.
Here’s how to get your discounted pricing: In the Walmart app, select member prices on fuel from your Walmart+ membership page and follow the instructions. Some members have reported that you need to ensure you don’t have a credit card saved to your Walmart account to take advantage of this promotion.
This is a solid addition for some Walmart+ members. It’s certainly a benefit to have a total of 14,000 gas stations at which you can take advantage of discounted gas. However, some members have commented on having a lot of difficulty with using the Walmart+ app (while others say it’s easier).
If you purchase a lot of gas, make sure to look into other ways to save at the pump. For example, Costco members can use the Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi to earn 4% for the first $7,000 per year on gas purchases — in addition to getting already-low member pricing.
