I think most of us have a love/hate relationship with Walmart.  I know I do, but now I'm feeling like I've got an edge on them.  Recently my brother was telling me about ordering various things through their online store.  Things like toothpaste, eye drops and a camouflage hat.  Last week we were at Walmart in Superior and when I got home I remembered several things I wanted to get, but because I didn't have them on my list, I forgot to buy them.  Soooooo, I decided to check out their website and let me tell you, there are an amazing number of things you can order from them. 

One thing I forgot was laundry soap.  Sure enough, you can buy it online.  Another thing was olive oil. Yup, that was in the online store too.  So now I was on a roll.  I've been wanting to get a new toaster and the one I wanted wasn't available in the stores, but is online!  I added that to my shopping cart as well as a few other items.  I'm sure you're all thinking about how much this order will cost to ship.  We all know how easy it is to spend $45 at Walmart and all my items we're in the "free shipping when you spend $45" or ship to home category.  I placed my order on Monday and on Wednesday FedEx drove up the driveway and delivered the first part.  On Thursday I got the rest of my order.  We were gone and it was kind of rainy when it was delivered, so they put the boxes in plastic bags and left them by the door.    

I was totally impressed with the whole deal.  I didn't have to go to the store to get what I forgot and now I have the new toaster I wanted!  It's a win win in my opinion.

I like the idea of it, but around my neck of the woods things that are delivered get stolen in a blink of an eye.Brown or regular they don't care,gone gone gone.. :-(

@Caroldee, I believe FedEx will not leave packages if they think things will be stolen in that area. They'll leave a notice saying they attempted to deliver a package and will retry the next day. I think UPS does the same thing. So this can work for most people.

Is that a T-Fal toaster? Interesting.
I order things online quite a bit and hubby picks them up at store then shop. Otherwise they deliver it. Out here in the boonies that is nice!

I'm not too sure about that. My daughter ordered something from Amazon and UPS put it on her front porch. It was gone before she got home from work.
