Once you become a parent, you naturally acquire certain skills—or, more accurately, magical powers. And for many, the ability to sniff out superior savings is the ultimate of these talents. But with so many different ways to save out there, it can feel overwhelming to know which might actually be worth trying. Say "hello" to Walmart+, Walmart's membership program that provides benefits while you shop for everyday essentials.

With summer coming to a close and back-to-school busyness around the corner, you're going to want a membership service that gives you the most bang for your buck. So what sets Walmart+ apart from the rest? Well, for starters, it costs just $12.95 per month or $98 per year to access a lot of great benefits. That's a small price to pay when Walmart estimates you'll save over $1,300 (and 90 hours) per year with free delivery and free shipping. But if you're not ready to commit to yet another service, you can try a free 30-day trial to make sure it's right for you and your family.

With Walmart+, members get exclusive access to experiences, events, and deals—plus, free shipping with no order minimum. This is especially useful when you forgot to get those last-minute school supplies or need a quick birthday gift (and you know we've all been there). And with free grocery deliveries for orders over $35, your kids won't constantly be complaining the pantry is out of their favorite snacks. You can conveniently keep the house stocked with all of your family's favorites without even leaving the house.

Driving the kids around for playdates, school drop-off, and afternoon activities may have you feeling like a professional chauffeur, but Walmart+ can at least save you money on gas. Members get 10 cents off every gallon at participating Exxon and Mobil stations and additional savings at Walmart, Murphy, and Sam's Club.

If you pride yourself on being a savvy saver, you're not going to want to sleep on Walmart+. Try it out for free for 30 days; what do you have to lose (other than unnecessary costs and time wasted running back and forth to the store).
