Walmart to launch free next-day delivery in Phoenix, Las Vegas

Walmart plans to reach 75% of the United States with free next-day delivery on orders above $35 this year

That's because qualifying items will be made available at the fulfillment center closest to each customer being offered the service. Walmart plans to add Southern California to the mix in the coming days, and says it will roll out to around 75 percent of the USA population by the end of the year. It expects the new sales strategy to reach approximately 75 percent of the US population this year, which includes 40 of the top 50 major USA metro areas, said the statement. Amazon Chief Financial Officer Brian Olsavsky said at the time that the change to its Prime delivery time was "all about the core free two-day offer morphing into a free one-day offer".

On Monday, Walmart unveiled NextDay, a new initiative to offer more than 220,000 popular items for one-day delivery with a minimum order threshold of $35.

Not to be outdone, Walmart today announced that it too is transitioning to free next day delivery, and without a membership fee.

Orders must total over $35 to be eligible. This will enable Walmart to ship items in one box, or as few as possible, for a shorter distance via less expensive ground shipping. The move follows on the heels of Amazon's recent rollout of 1-day delivery. Membership costs $119 a year. It also said it will roll out the service to 75 percent of the USA within the year.

And, today, to complement our same-day Grocery Delivery, we're excited to announce a new offering we've been working on for a while now.

On April 25, Amazon said it plans to deliver packages to members of its loyalty club Prime in just one day and expects to spend $800 million toward the shipping goal in the second quarter alone. They'll find toys and electronics in the separate tab for the feature, as well, though the items available will vary depending on their location.

To have an online purchase delivered the next day, a customer visits Walmart.com and toggles into the next day delivery section of the site to view items that are eligible for free next day delivery.

Walmart and Target have been turning their physical stores into shipping hubs, speeding up deliveries and helping to defray costs for services like curbside delivery and in-store pickup.
