(Update: Get $55+ Back on a $98 membership) Walmart+ Savings: Subscribe for Less

Update 5/22/21: Swagbucks is back down to 5,500 (i.e. $55)

Update 5/15/21: Swagbucks is now offering $110 in Swagbucks with a Walmart+ annual membership (which costs $98). The Chase or Bank Of America Offer referenced below is also still active, so you may be able to get up to 20% back when paying with a linked card (an additional $19.60). It is also possible that Dosh will stack with its 15% back card-linked offer if you link your card to the Dosh app before purchasing your membership. If it all stacks correctly, this will be a $45+ money-maker. Note that Swagbucks says that trial memberships are not eligible for Swagbucks. I still recommend taking plenty of screen shots of everything in case you need to follow up. (H/T: Frequent Miler Insiders)

Update 5/4/21: The Chase Offer and Bank of America offer is back and should likely stack. Note that I see 10% back on most Chase cards and Bank of America, but 20% back on our Chase Freedom card. If this stacks properly, you’ll get a total of $99.30 back on a $98 one-year membership (turning a $1.30 profit). Note that there have been some previous issues with stacking as noted below, but it’s probably worth a shot with so many potentially-stacking discounts if you would have otherwise considered a membership.

Update 5/1/21: Walmart+ is now at $50-$55 cash back on shopping portals (including up to $55 via Swagbucks, $50 via TopCashBack, or $50 via ShopAtHome). You may also be able to stack 15% back via the Dosh app since it looks like that is still a card-linked offer, but YMMV. Many people had difficulty with portals tracking Walmart+ subscriptions around the holidays. The problem seemed to be on Walmart’s end and ShopAtHome eventually made good on their $100 deal for those who made the most noise (Greg and I both got our $100 payouts eventually after filing tickets). I’ve heard reports of Swagbucks eventually making good on their offer for some folks as well (though perhaps not everyone). My guess is that the issues have likely been resolved by now, but I highly recommend taking screen shots of the process in case you need to follow up later. While I haven’t made a ton of use of Walmart+, I do find it convenient to be able to scan items with my phone while shopping in-store and then check out via QR code at the register (which is convenient enough for me since my state no longer has plastic bags at checkout anyway, so this way I can check out without scanning everything at the checkout line). YMMV as to whether that convenience and free shipping is worth forty or fifty bucks.

Walmart+ is Walmart’s answer to Amazon Prime.  A Walmart+ membership offers free next-day and 2-day shipping from Walmart.com, free delivery from your local Walmart store ($35 minimum), and Walmart & Sam’s Club gas station savings.  Walmart+ costs $12.95/month or $98/year.  See below for tips for saving money on that membership.

Swagbucks is currently offering 11,000 Swagbucks when taking out an annual Walmart+ plan. 11,000 Swagbucks are worth $110.00 and can be cashed out via PayPal, so Swagbucks are as good as cash. (Quick note: if you use a VPN, you have to turn that off when redeeming Swagbucks as they’ll lock your account otherwise.)

Here are all the current Swagbucks rebates for Walmart+:

  • Paid annual subscription – 11,000 Swagbucks ($110)
  • Paid monthly subscription – 1,300 Swagbucks ($13)
  • Free trial – 500 Swagbucks ($5)
  • Walmart+ First Purchase Bonus – 250 Swagbucks ($2.50) Purchase must be made with in 21 days of starting your Walmart+ Trial. Cash Back will post within 60 days.

Here’s how to play it:

  1. Sign up for Swagbucks (Greg’s referral link) to qualify for a 1,000 Swagbucks ($10) new member bonus when spending $25+.
  2. Find Swagbucks’s Walmart+ page (click here) and click “Join Now” to go to the Walmart+ signup page.
  3. Sign up for Walmart+ (note that it says there is no payout for the free trial)
  4. Since there are no Swagbucks for a trial, this may work more smoothly if you immediately cancel the 15-day trial and pay the $98. Alternatively, maybe there is a way to sign up without the trial.
  5. Total Cost: $98 for 12 months.  Total rebate: $120 (or $110.00 if you are a current Swagbucks user).

Double Dip with Chase Offer

There is a Chase Offer and Bank of America Offer out on Walmart+. Many cards show 10% back, but I found 20% back on a Chase Freedom card (up to $20 back). This should stack with everything else for $19.60 back on an annual subscription.

Triple Dip with the Dosh App

The Dosh App offers additional cash back for an annual Walmart+ subscriptionIt’s a long-shot, but possible that if you follow the steps shown above for Swagbucks, you might earn cash back from Dosh as well (as long as you use a card linked to Dosh when paying for your annual subscription).  Even though Dosh’s terms say to click through from the app, Dosh often pays out even when browsing from another portal.  The key is to make sure that the credit card you use to pay for Walmart+ is linked with Dosh. Update: Dosh has paid out for a Walmart+ membership in the past even when not clicking through from their app, so it presumably will again. My Dosh cash back got clawed back, but it held up for others. Currently, Dosh is offering 15% back on an annual subscription ($14.70).

Since Walmart+ won’t charge your credit card for 15 days, it seems unlikely that you’ll earn cash back by using a card linked to Dosh if you didn’t click through from Dosh, but it’s possible that it will somehow work.  If you do this and it’s successful, consider it a nice little bonus, but don’t be mad at me if it doesn’t work!

If you’re new to Dosh, feel free to sign up using one of our referral links. We’ll earn $10 when you sign up, verify your first card, and make a purchase. Unfortunately, it’s unclear what you’ll get, if anything, for using a referral:

They’re currently offering 15% cashback on an annual membership. Seeing as that costs $98, you’ll earn $14.70 cashback.

Google Pay

Google Pay has in the past offered cash back for a Walmart+ subscription, but this does not appear to be available currently.

Cashback Earned

If you take advantage of all these stacking opportunities, here’s what you may earn by buying a $98 annual membership for Walmart+:

  • $110 – Swagbucks (for buying the membership)
  • $10 – Swagbucks (if this is a new Swagbucks account)
  • $14.70 – Dosh (if you pay with a card linked to Dosh)
  • $19.60 – Chase Offer
  • Total cash back = $154.30

That makes a one-year membership profitable by $56.30 if it all stacks properly. Again, it is worth noting that some parts of the stack have required follow-up previously, so I recommend taking screen shots and being aware that getting the cash back may not be effortless.

My Take

If you shop often at Walmart and/or you get gas at Walmart or Sam’s Club locations, then Walmart+ seems like a good value, even without the above savings.  With the rebates described above, the deal gets even better.

Note that after using the Walmart+ Scan & Go feature in the Walmart app, I can further attest to the time-savings if you shop in-store. You simply scan items as you put them in your cart, then scan a QR code at the self-checkout and pay in the app without needing to scan the contents of your cart again. Checkout is a breeze!

Anyone sees any cash back on Walmart plus now?


Do you have to use the same email as swagbucks to get credit?


If you sin up for the free trial and cancel, it won’t let you do the free trial again and charges your card today.

R Perry

I clicked through ShopAtHome and they claimed I did not click through them, which is a lie. I made sure I used a browser without adware blocking so everything would go through. Despite this and completing a support ticket, I got nowhere.


Ive tried using wal mart+. They have 1/100th the sellers Prime has and they’re 95% of the time, more expensive than prime. They use USPS which is a disaster right now. Just not worth it.

Wells Fargo also has 20% off if you pay with any of their debit or credit cards. Must activate the deal first.


I just got hit up with a new round of Amex and Chase offers on this so that is not dead but I’m sure T&C may have effect know those two jokers.


Since I’m always complaining I thought I’d share that Swagbucks came through for me and awarded the missing 10k points I thought I’d never see. I just provided as much info as I had and waited. I also explained to them that shopathome was dealing with the same tracking issue. It stinks that Walmart+ basically set us up for failure by not sending a receipt, not providing an order number and billing on a different date due to the trial membership. It couldn’t have been a worse combination for a cashback site.

For those waiting for a payout from the no longer available Shop At Home $100 offer, it’s worth submitting a support ticket a few times. I finally got an email today saying that they have investigated the issue and resolved it by crediting my account. Sure enough, my account shows $100 from Walmart!


I appreciate your update, Greg! I have sent them an email. I kinda gave up but you gave me hope!


Got my $102.5 credited today as well..


Looks like someone went through a bunch of our accounts yesterday and we all got credited! Yay!


I submitted my follow-up ticket after hearing about the recent wave of success here, and despite the fact that the first response very specifically said they would do nothing without reams of documentation, they went ahead and credited me the $100! I have already submitted a transfer request on that because who knows how long the money will last at this rate, lol. Thanks!


Got my $100 credit this week after 4 separate tickets submitted.

Was Shop At Home showing a tracking ticket for your WalMart+ purchase when you submitted the support ticket? Mine is not.


There are only 3 datapoints here of Shopathome paying out succesfully – anyone else have any success with them? I am still waiting for mine after multiple tickets and being given the run around..


Walmart+ sucks. Many items are not included (cold foods, water, etc). I cancelled.


Took multiple opened cases and emails but I finally got the $102.50 credited to my account by ShotAtHome this morning as well.


Just got a $110 check in the mail from ShopAtHome from the December promotion. Also got $9.80 from dosh that was not clawed back.


Well, my tenacity fueled by irritation at being scammed seems to have paid off (I”ll know for sure when I have a working gift card in my possession.) After filing a complaint with the BBB, tweeting out a complaint to Prodege and shopathome, leaving a voicemail, and threatening a class-action lawsuit in an email, I got this email today:

Susan (Shopathome)
Feb 2, 2021, 3:35 PM PST
Hello Account,

Thank you so much for your patience while we investigated the issue you had with this offer.

I have applied the requested credit to your account today. If you have any further concerns, please let me know. Have a wonderful day!

And, sure enough, the money was in my account. I redeemed for a Walmart gift card (because the VISA one expires too quickly), and it says 3 days to process, so fingers crossed:

(I tried to post a screenshot here of my shopathome account activity, but this post turned it into code)

Anyway, I replied to their latest email requesting yet even more screenshots, and refused to do so, telling them to stop stringing me along. I was about to call Walmart Corporate Offices, per someone’s suggestion to get them involved, but this ‘problem solved’ email came before I needed to. I want to thank everyone whose suggestions and similar tribulations helped fuel my drive to generate this positive result. Fingers crossed the gift card comes through loaded, and that others here find a similar path to success.

Wow … well done!! … I just got another email asking for the receipt from Walmart+ for my account. Ive send my cc statement with sensitive stuff blacked out but I have no receipt from walmart … just a screenshot of my account status and next due date.


I just got the email with the $100 Walmart gift card I chose, and I’m happy to report that the money is actually on the gift card, as I did a test on Walmart.com. Hallelujah! This nightmare is over!


lol! Well done!!! Ima gonna do the same!


I got an email yesterday that my latest ticket was updated. I purposely avoided reading it because I was very busy and didn’t have any time or energy to spare dealing with what I assumed would piss me off.
Anyway I checked it just now and it was actually a message saying they applied the missing $102.50 to my account! Thanks to everyone who continued to be persistent and I’m so glad we got someone at Shopathome/Prodege to finally take responsibility and honor their original offer. Hopefully this isn’t such a nightmare going forward for others.

Edited to add: I did submit my screenshots all over again plus added additional screenshots of the fact that my Bank of America Walmart+ offer was honored and credited as proof that Walmart has indeed been reporting customer sign ups to companies so there should be no reason Shopathome can blame Walmart for not properly reporting signups.

Dumb question here – How do you skip the 15 day trial and pay directly?

Greg The Frequent Miler

Not a dumb question at all. The only way I know to do it is to sign up for the free trial (without going through a portal) then cancel the subscription, then sign up again. Maybe someone else knows a better way?
