After Amazon announced plans for next-day Prime shipping, Walmart said hold my beer and announced its plans to provide FREE next-day shipping.

 

The retail giant — which has a store within 30 minutes of 95% of Americans — has already rolled out the feature in Las Vegas and Phoenix, and plans to have 75% of the U.S. covered by next year.

 

The plan will cost them $215 million in needed infrastructure changes, which is far less than the $800 million Amazon is going to have to spend to make the same changes. Mostly because of how much more shipping Amazon does than Walmart.
