It appears that Walmart will not do their value shipping to the non contiguous USA again. If you like to order from Walmart and get value shipping for free please let them know. Please use the contact us on Walmart.com to let them know if you are dissatisfied! Thanks.

I read somewhere you have to buy some shipping pass. Kinda like Amazon Prime {which does not work direct here but good for many other things) and you buy that and meet I think around $50 of eligible items.

That pass doesn't apply to the US territories.

Yes it does; I have received 3 orders in the last week.

It ends up costing $49/year for free shipping, I saved that much on my first order.

Guess I'm not keeping up or they keep changing things around. It was a short time ago that they had some special deal which was brought up on another thread but it wasn't valid in the US territories - and I did double check it and we were definitely excluded. This must be something relatively new.

I signed up for a 30 day free trial of the shipping pass. I plan to keep it. I've received 4 orders already. It's awesome. Amazon Prime has lost me business. Walmart bring it on.

Hmm, ShippingPass to VI but not with 2-day shipping.

More details on what is eligible with ShippingPass:
FREE 2-day shipping-Nearly all addresses in the continental U.S
FREE value shipping-Select items that are not included in ShippingPass will ship for free but with value shipping. Look for items sold by Walmart.com and marked with FREE shipping. You will also see this noted in checkout.
Addresses in the following State Codes AK, HI, AE, AP, AA, PR, GU, MP, PW, AS, VI, FM and APO/FPO addresses with U.S. ZIP Codes will ship for free with value shipping. You will see this noted in checkout.

Yes, it was free until this last weekend it changed back to not including VI. So they are trying to promote the $49 pass. Which I can understand. What I can't understand is, they are using the USPS for mainland or the VI, so why exclude the VI?

As mentioned earlier, their USVI/US territories policies seem to change frequently. If you plan on placing an order then the sensible idea is to contact Walmart directly to see what the current options are.

If you buy the $49 shipping pass, the rest of your purchases are free shipping. Also, I have called amazon numerous times and had my shipping charges reimbursed as a prime subscriber.

Sparty, when you next place an order, would you let me know? There are a couple of small items I need from them but it's not worth it for me to pay the $49 for the privilege!

I'm not an Amazon Primer but have always had my shipping charges removed after a couple of email exchanges. Pain in the arse it is. 😀

Thanks, but I'm just assuming that you still have to meet a minimum purchase amount and what I need won't meet it. I know, one shouldn't assume ...

OT. We are holding off on any purchases until I hear final word on that potential life change. Should hear by early next week.

No rush at all, just if you do place an order let me know if you can. Thanks! Emailed you earlier today.

Not understanding the nonsense. Pay the shipping pass fee, meet order $ of I think 49-50 with ELIGIBLE items (which will be pointed out on checkout), wait a week and go home with your stuff.
