Walmart and Instacart are teaming up to get you your groceries within the hour. As earlier reported by CNBC on Tuesday, the retail giant and the grocery delivery service are rolling out their partnership now to a few select markets in California -- Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego -- as well as Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

The companies are promising same-day delivery that could be as fast as an hour. Instacart already works with Kroger, Aldi, CVS and several other major chains. The partnership with Walmart will no doubt help both keep up with Amazon, which owns Whole Foods
