This is big: Walmart has a new kind of discount.

The retailer will give you a discount on more than 10,000 items if you’re willing to ship them to a Walmart location and pick them up yourself, rather than having the items delivered to your door.

This new “pickup discount” starts April 19, according to a statement from Marc Lore, president and CEO of Walmart U.S. eCommerce.

Walmart will start by discounting roughly 10,000 items. By the end of June, Walmart says it will offer a pickup discount on more than one million items!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Go online to Walmart.com and start shopping.
  2. Some items will be marked with a “pickup discount.” If you buy these items and have them shipped to your local store for pick up, you get the discount.
  3. Head over to your local Walmart store to retrieve your purchases.
