I have never had an ice cream maker. Well, I take that back actually ’cause in our early years of marriage, we did have the one where you used rock salt and such but I don’t think it was mine. I think it was borrowed. So finally after 15+ years, I decided to buy me a budget friendly one from Walmart using their new Pick up Today service. I’ve been wanting to try it out. It’s similar to site to store but you get the item the same day, which rocks.
So I’ll just start with the big problem I had and that was finding something to buy online that I could pick up the same day. I think that our rural area proved difficult because it’s such a new service but was excited once I found the “Pick up Today” option on this ice cream maker.
You simply put your zip code for your nearest Walmart. Then you surf to find a product to buy that has the Pick Up Today option, buy it, then wait for an email or text to say it’s ready to be picked up. I put my phone number in but never got a text but I did get an email within the hour saying it was ready. It gives you all the instructions once you check out.
Once I got to my Walmart, I showed the customer service my bar code and within 10 minutes, I had my order. It was that easy for me. (You can also print it out for you all you old school folks) *teehee*
I think once it’s available to all areas, it will be a pretty nifty feature. My shipping was free because it was going to the store and it got there SOOOO fast! You only have 48 hours to pick up your items before they get returned so don’t forget! Will you use the Pick Up Today service?
So now that I have an ice cream maker, I need some ice cream maker recipes! Do you have any to share? I’m totally ready to start using it to make some Summer Treats! Perhaps even some Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches?
