Feel like a midnight snack of ice cream and a bag of M&Ms, and want a toothbrush and toothpaste to go with that?

Now you can get that from Walmart  (WMT) - Get Report - and not order a bunch of other stuff you may or may not need to get to their $35 minimum.

Walmart said Monday that it is scrapping its $35 minimum order requirement for express delivery, bringing it more in line with rivals Amazon.com (AMZN) - Get Report, Costco (COST) - Get Report, Target (TGT) - Get Report and other big-box retailers in offering no-minimum express delivery of items like food and consumables.

Orders to a customer’s front door still come with a per-delivery fee of $7.95 or $9.95, or shoppers can still pay for that monthly or annual Walmart+ fee, similar to Amazon Prime, which offers same-day delivery and other perks for $12.95 a month or $98 a year.

Walmart shoppers wanting free curbside pickup at a specific time and location can still do so - with a $35 minimum order.
