Walmart Gift Card

By March 3, 2022 May 13th, 2022 No Comments

Walmart gift cards are awesome. It’s great to shop online with or use in-store. I like to ask for Walmart gift cards for holidays and then use them on groceries. And with some online side hustles, you can get free Walmart gift cards for yourself too.

After a couple uses though, I’m unsure of what my Walmart gift card balance is.

Keep reading below for a list of some FAQs surrounding Walmart gift cards and some solutions to common problems.

How do Walmart gift cards work?

You can purchase a Walmart gift card online or in-store at your local Walmart. They offer gift cards starting at $5 and go up from there.

Once you’ve selected your dollar amount, if you’re in store you can check out. Once the cashier has scanned the card and you’ve paid for it, the card is activated and ready to use.

A similar process to purchasing a Walmart visa online. Online you have the option to purchase a physical gift card and have it sent to you, or you can have a digital one emailed to you.

Walmart gift cards purchased online are activated at the time of purchase.

How do I check the value of a Walmart gift card?

There are many ways to check the value of a Walmart gift card:

  1. Check your balance online on Walmart. Just enter the 16-digit code found on the back of the card and the 4-digit pin.
  2. Call 1-888-537-5503 to get your Walmart gift card balance. The number is toll free.
  3. Visit a Walmart store and ask the cashier or associate at the customer service desk. They can scan the card for you.

Unfortunately, you cannot turn your Walmart visa into cash in store. This is one of the few restrictions that are placed on Walmart gift cards. There are a couple workarounds, however, to getting cash from Walmart gift cards:

At this time however, Walmart visa gift cards cannot be used to purchase other visa debit cards or be used for cashback.

How can I check my Walmart gift card balance without a PIN?

If you have a Walmart gift card that does not have a pin, you will need a new gift card issued. You likely have an older card version that was issued without a PIN. Reach out directly to Walmart. A store associate can transfer the balance of your current card onto a new one that does have a pin.

  • Call 1-888-537-5503 to get your Walmart gift card balance. The number is toll free.

What is the maximum amount for a Walmart gift card?

The most you can put on a Walmart gift card at one time is $500. If you need more than that you can purchase multiple cards.

They also offer cards in smaller amounts starting at $5 and going up from there. For any questions or concerns, you can call 1-888-537-5503.

Can I buy something with a Walmart gift card and return it for cash?

No, you cannot buy something with a Walmart gift card and return it for cash.

Walmart, like most stores when processing returns, refunds your money however you paid. If you used visa debit cards they would refund that way. 

But if you originally purchase an item with a Walmart gift card, when you return it the money will go back on a gift card.

Since Walmart and Sam’s Club sell pretty much everything, from gas to groceries to hearing aids and prescription drugs, a gift card to Walmart is as good as cash.

If you’re not quite sure what to use it for now, hold onto it and wait for the Sam’s Club Black Friday or the Walmart Black Friday sales.
