Now the big box retailer is offering another incentive to its Walmart+ members – digital rewards shoppers can use toward future purchases. Here’s how it works:

First, become a Walmart+ member. The subscription costs £12.95 monthly or you can save by paying £98 upfront for one year. Bonus Offer: Open a new Citi Priority Account by 1/9/23 and earn up to a £2,000 cash bonus after completing required activities.[6]

Next, download the Walmart app, because that’s where you can access this cashback rewards program, which is part of a partnership between Walmart and the Ibotta cashback rewards platform, according to TechCrunch.com. Then, shop as you normally would in the Walmart app as a Walmart+ member. When you purchase an item eligible for cashback, simply “clip” the offer like you would any digital coupon.

After you make your purchase, you’ll earn Walmart Rewards that are saved in the app and can be applied to future purchases for greater savings. Walmart is already one of the brands that offers cash back through the Ibotta app. This new program allows Walmart+ members to accrue even more rewards, without downloading the Ibotta app.

The Walmart+ program also stands out because users don’t need to apply for a cashback credit card to earn the rewards. (Although you can multiply your rewards by paying for purchases with a top cashback rewards credit card[7].) Amazon offers 5% cash back on many purchases, but only for those who open an Amazon Prime Rewards Visa[8] card. See: 11 Things You Should Never Buy at Walmart

The new Walmart Rewards program joins a growing list of benefits Walmart+ members can access, including:

  • Free shipping with no minimum purchase
  • Discounted fuel prices at many gas stations
  • Free grocery delivery
  • Special promotions and deals

Walmart+ members can also get six months of Spotify Premium for free and, in the near future, according to an article at TechCrunch.com, free access to the Paramount streaming service with a Paramount+ Essential Plan. More From GOBankingRates
