Product Review and $25 Giftcard giveaway - Walmart.com online ordering and free shipping to your home! How easy is that?

 I was provided with a gift card to allow me to try out how easy and convenient the online ordering process through walmart.com is. For ordering Procter and Gamble products, walmart.com is one easy and convenient solution. Not only does Walmart have a great selection of Procter and Gamble products, the prices are really reasonable and I was even able to snag one product on clearance, which a frugal shopper like me is always thrilled about. Add in that walmart.com offers free shipping if you order more than $50 worth of items and this process is almost impossible to beat by others.

copyright Durhamonthecheap - first item on my wishlist has been identified, a new mop for downstairs

copyright Durhamonthecheap- the mop comes with supplies and note the offer of free shipping for orders of $50+



copyright Durhamonthecheap - - Tide on sale! Of course I had to snag one 75oz container at that price!

copyright Durhamonthecheap - so many choices! What should I select? Deciding was tough, but someone had to do it!

Even if you do ot order $50 worth of items, you can still avoid shipping charges by having the items delivered to the store for free. If you decide to go the route of store delivery and pickup, you just go to the customer service counter and indicate your order number. A staffer will then retrieve your items from the store's warehouse and you can drive home with your order and never had to worry about making an unnecessary trip to see whether an item you needed was available. I have used the order and ship to store option in the past and found it also very easy and convenient.

copyright Durhamonthecheap - note the free shipping!  I like the confirmation statements, they make ordering very easy!
So this time around, I was asked to order Procter and Gamble products. This was perfect because I wanted to buy a Swiffer product for cleaning the wooden and laminate floors downstairs. Having to carry around the mop is really inconvenient and the mop also always seems to be on the wrong floor when there is a spill and I need to quickly clean up the floor. So having two mops, one of them a brand new Swiffer wet jet, sounded like a perfect solution.
copyright Durhamonthecheap -I paid with my Walmart Gift Card, but of course any credit card is an option too!

I also order found some Tide detergent on sale, make that clearance, and of course I jumped on that and ordered one Tide detergent. No more hauling heavy detergent home, now the package will arrive at my doorstep next week and I can save myself hauling bulky detergent bottles that are also heavy home from the grocery store.
copyright Durhamonthecheap -my order list, just above $50 and therefore FREE SHIPPING!
copyright Durhamonthecheap - initial confirmation for my order, a more detailed confirmation is listed below.
The last item I ordered were some Charmin wet toilette tissues. I ordered the original container and then added another refill because I have fallen in love with this little piece of luxury that can be found in wet toilette wipes. The price is affordable and since the total was just over $50, I happily confirmed my order and now, with the receipt of my confirmation email on hand, can sit back, relax, enjoy the weekend and know that the quick helpers at walmart.com will fulfill my order, load it on a truck and some time next week, I will find a box of goodies in front of my house.

One thing I like about ordering through walmart.com, you can pay of course with gift cards or credit cards, but you can also pay with cash, in case you do not want to use an electronic form of payment. Walmart has really thought of everything when designing their e-commerce site and ensuring the convenience for the consumer.

For me the toughest part was clearly deciding what to order. While the mop was an easy decision since I needed one for downstairs and Swiffer has such good reviews. The rest of other times was more difficult because the selection is so huge. But now that I have been through the ordering process once, I have to say that Walmart makes the ordering very easy. I love the regular confirmation screens that walk you through the purchase process. I have my account set up with Walmart and I think that is the way to go. For my home delivery, I did not have to enter any address, my confirmation email was received at my usual email and I will definitely update the post when the packages arrives.

And now for the Giveaway!
I have one gift card in the amount of $25 to mail to the luck winner. The entry is through Rafflecopter to keep everything nice, easy and most importantly fair! Please note that the deadline for entering is 8-16-14 at midnight. with the gift card, you can then experience the convenience of Walmart online ordering for yourself and keep in mind that you can pay online with your gift card and have the items delivered to the nearest Walmart store for free for a convenient pick up!

I divide and conquer. I only clean one room before doing something else for a while, cooking, errands, etc. It doesn't seem as formidable.
