We all want to stretch our budgets as far as we can to save the most money and tonight, we’re chatting with television host Maria Menounos as she shares some savings tips we can use. She starts off with an amazing deal from Straight Talk Wireless. Anyone who switches to Straight Talk Wireless’ gold or platinum plan will receive a free Walmart Plus Membership. Maria shares that this is really cool because with Walmart Plus you can get groceries delivered right to your doorstep which is perfect for busy families. You can also get free shipping on anything you buy at Walmart as well as save money on gas and free streaming services from Paramount Plus. She also tells us that the average Walmart Plus customer saves about $1,300 a year which is a lot of money that can go towards holiday gifts or a family vacation. Maria loves that you can get all these benefits just by signing up for the Straight Talk Wireless plan. Maria also touches on her experience with pancreatic cancer, and she encourages everyone to be their own biggest health advocates. For more information about the Straight Talk Wireless plan, you can check out Walmart.com or straighttalk.com.
