Walmart+ members are used to getting perks with their memberships: free delivery from Walmart stores, nationwide gas discounts, returns from home, mobile scan and go, a Paramount+ subscription, free shipping with no order minimum, video streaming with Pluto TV, early access to online sales, and Walmart rewards.
Now, the retailer is adding to that list: travel benefits.
Walmart has partnered with Expedia Group’s White Label Template to offer Walmart+ members exclusive deals on their next getaway.
“We’re bringing together the ultimate savings membership and vacation booking site to deliver a first-ever travel-focused benefit for Walmart+ members,” said Venessa Yates, senior vice president and general manager of Walmart+.
“Combined with our other efforts – including free delivery, streaming, and savings on fuel – we’re creating a membership that saves customers time and money, whether they’re at home or having fun at their favorite vacation destination.”
Earn Walmart Cash for booking your next trip
Walmart+ members can book their next vacation with Walmart+ and immediately start earning as much as 5% Walmart Cash for their trip.
The booking site has a wide range of options for hotels, airlines, and car rental companies, both in the U.S. and overseas. There are offers for last-minute hotel deals, hotel specials by the beach, family-friendly options, popular road-trip destinations, tours and activities, and more.
The amount of Walmart Cash varies depending on what members book. Reserving a hotel, car, vacation rental, or activity yields 5% Walmart Cash, while flights offer 2% cash back.
When booking both a hotel and a flight, Walmart+ members will receive each respective Cash Back percentage – 5% for the hotel and 2% for the flight.
Walmart Cash is the latest version of Walmart Rewards, which members accumulate when they purchase certain items that are flagged with a Walmart Cash icon. That Cash can be redeemed towards future purchases in-store or online, or those with at least a $25 balance can receive cash at their local Walmart store.
A seamless booking experience
The partnership with Expedia makes it easy for Walmart+ members to navigate the booking process. This includes making changes to their itinerary, answering travel questions, or assisting in the reservation process.
“We’re connecting Walmart’s customer base with Expedia Group’s extensive array of travel supply partners from around the world,” said Ariane Gorin, president of Expedia for Business. “What’s exciting is that with this collaboration, Walmart customers will benefit from Expedia’s ongoing innovation through TravelOS, our AI-powered travel operating system, as we continue to add new products and feature updates to drive the best traveler experience.”
Walmart+ members can book their next getaway straight from the Walmart app or at WalmartPlusTravel.com. Once they officially book their vacation, the Walmart Cash balance will reflect the changes, and members can utilize their rewards 30 days after their trip.
