“Being able to toss an item into your cart, regardless of the total, and check out right away lets [customers] knock little things off their to-do list in no time,” said  Walmart Chief Customer Officer Janey Whiteside.

Walmart Plus launched in September at a cost of $98 a year or $13 a month. You can get a free 15- or 30-day trial of the subscription service. The Amazon Prime rival also includes savings of up to 5 cents per gallon on gas at Walmart, Sam’s Club, Murphy USA and Murphy Express gas stations nationwide.
