The lines between online and in-store shopping are getting a whole lot blurrier and the whole experience is more streamlined for shoppers: Walmart has launched "Pick Up Today."

Pick Up Today is different from "Site to Store," which lets you order select items online and have them shipped to the nearest location. This new service offers same-day pick up of online purchases, for free. Walmart began testing the program at 750 stores in 20 markets late last year and will roll it out nationally to all locations by the end of March.
