Planning a summer road trip this year? Gathering all of the supplies you’ll need can be exhausting before you ever hit the road. Sourcing this and finding that and forgetting the buy the things on your list… let’s avoid all of that and makes things simple. Order online from Walmart.com. You have the items shipped to your home or pick them up in the store, whichever is most convenient for you. You’d be surprised what kinds of items you order online from Walmart.com… items like Pennzoil Platinum® synthetic motor oil. Yeah, I got this online!


Walmart.com is a one-stop shop for many of your day to day needs and for special events like road trips. You can find really cool niche items online that aren’t available in all of the stores; some of the items are only available online.

Avoid the crowds and stress of standing in lines by ordering online and picking up from the store or having the order shipped home.

Here are 7 items you should be buying online from Walmart.com for your next road trip:

1. Mad Libs

I LOVED Mad Libs growing up as a kid but they are really hard to find in stores these days. Not at Walmart.com! Bring back the nostalgia with Mad Libs on the Road edition. You can come up with the words and have the kids fill in the blanks and then laugh at the funny stories that you create together!


2. Pennzoil Platinum® synthetic motor oil

Peace of mind is key during a road trip and that is why we always change our oil, check the fluids, and check the tires before we head out. All Pennzoil products help clean out sludge lesser oils leave behind and that’s why Pennzoil is our #1 choice for motor oil for all of our cars.

Pennzoil Platinum® synthetic motor oil offers the best cleanliness and protection in the Pennzoil line-up and it is available through Walmart.com! With PurePlus™ Technology, the Platinum® motor oil is proven to keep pistons up to 40% cleaner than the toughest industry standard. PurePlus™ Technology is a revolutionary process that converts natural gas into a 99.5% pure base oil. Xaver’s new car requires synthetic motor oil so we choose Pennzoil Platinum® from Walmart.com.


Sometimes it can be a challenge to find the exact oil we need in the store but by ordering online from Walmart.com, we can ensure that we get the exact oil blend that we want. You can have the oil delivered to your home or to the store, and from there, you have the choice of changing the oil yourself or having the Walmart Service Center change the oil for you. If you’re on the trip, use your mobile phone to order online at Walmart.com and have the oil available for pickup at a Walmart store on your route. This is especially handy if you have an older car that might burn a little oil and you don't want to drive around with bottles of oil in the car on a road trip.

No matter the oil blend you use, many Pennzoil products are on Rollback right now for a limited time at Walmart.com.

3. Plug-in drink cooler

Keep the drinks cool for miles with a cute mini fridge that plugs into your car! If you travel with medications that must be kept cold, a cooler like this is a good idea. After the road trip, use it in your office to keep your favorite drinks cool.

4. Portable cleaning supplies like glass wipes and cleaning wipes.

Keep the car looking spiffy and smelling fresh by keeping flat packs of cleaning wipes and glass wipes in the glove box. You can find some of these in the store but it is easier to just select the exact formulas you want on Walmart.com and have them delivered in your shipment.

5. All the snacks for your trip

Yes, Walmart.com even offers in store pickup and delivery of many food items! No worries about your favorite chips being sold out. Just place the order online and get them delivered to your door or in-store for pickup.

6. Affordable Luggage Bag

Need more space inside the car? Find affordable luggage bags at Walmart.com to strap your gear to the roof of the car! Don’t get stuck in Barstow, CA trying to find a luggage bag because the kids are complaining about the sleeping bags being shoved under their feet. It’s easier to find the bag you need at Walmart.com and get it shipped or delivered to the store. In fact, you can order online through your phone for pickup at ANY Walmart, even while you’re on your road trip.

7. Roadside Safety Kit

Being prepared with a safety kit is a must and this one from Walmart.com is affordable and comprehensive. Always keep a kit in your car for emergencies because you never know what might happen. We hope for adventure and fun but being prepared is something you’ll be happy you did in case you do have an emergency or a break-down.

Are you excited about summer? I totally am! And I am excited for you to save time, money, and your sanity by using Walmart.com to order supplies, like Pennzoil products, for your next road trip.
