Walmart - E-gift card

Well, it took 2 days they finally emailed my son the information needed to redeem the card.

If the delivery time is 48 hours that is what they should put on the description online. I would have been fine with that because I would have sent the money he needed though a different method.

I learned a lesson and will never trust Walmart again.

Website states the recipient will receive within minutes usually, it has been over 24 hours and still nothing they took my money immediately out of my account but still have not sent the card information to my son who is in a different city waiting for money he needed .I complained to Walmart customer service who sent back a generic response to my email.

Well it has been 24 hours and still nothing, they just keep saying it is processing?

what is there to process send the email you sent me two already???

This is absolutely a rip off!Do not trust the website or Walmart.

I bought a Microsoft Xbox one point ecard. They said it usually ships in minutes but no more than 4 hours. It's been over 12 hours. I chatted with a representative and all she could say was oh it can take as long as 24 hours. I told them that is false advertisement. I could have went to game stop and got it within 5 minutes. Buttttttttttt they took my money out of my account ASAP. Walmart SUCK.

I just had the same problem. They are seriously full of it. No need to explain because you explained everything.

SAME HERE!! I E-Delivery some Playstation Cards and Itune Cards electronically through Email but it took them 1-2 days when they say it should take no longer than 4 hours on their site!!! I did this more than 6 times to make sure it isn't just me again but it's still the same!! Quite upset, only reason why I choose walmart to get my e-delivery is because I have my Associate discount for cheaper price. But other than that, When I tried out Amazon, like 3 times before, and it literally took less than 5minute and I received it!!! WOW I was amazed I order 2 separate card from these two site at same time to see which is faster, apparantly I got all my e-delivery cards way sooner than Walmart did. That's my only complaint for e-delivery.

It is not that they cannot read, it is that you cannot write a sentence properly. Why do you have to use so many comma's? People generally cannot read something that is not in proper English.

USUALLY within minutes. USUALLY. It can take longer during the holidays to process online payments. USUALLY. It is not a scam.

I have learned my lesson this is about the 4th egift card that I have had issues with .. I get blank emails ... And always have to speak to a higher personel to get the issue resolved ... It was a whole 5 days online before I finally got it ... I try and give a company a fair shake and let them redeem themselves ... But when I order something by email I shouldn't have to wait a week or even 48 hrs to get it ... When Amazon does it in 2 minutes. Never Again !!!! You have lost a customer !!!

same thing happened to me and the web service customer support was useless. I was able to cancel my order (worth $200) too bad for Walmart!

This is kiting and fraud operation engineered by WalMart to make extra float on your money and launder it as genuine revenue to pad their books! I had the same. I paid CASH for a gift and made an order at They cancelled the order within MINUTES yet are still holding the money hostage 13 hours later! They also cited "security" as the issue. The only fraud I see is going on on THEIR end!
It's interesting that money they claim isn't good enough to buy products from their site, yet it's perfectly good enough to earn a float from what they are claiming are fraudulent funds! I'm pretty sure there is a RICO violation somewhere in there! The FTC seriously needs to look into this scam and SHUT IT DOWN!

Same bs. I called and they told me it will be within 48 hours that it's a security issue. Well, verify the information and issue it!

I've never had any issue ordering wal-mart gift cards. Normally they are sent to my email within 2 minutes of ordering. The longest I ever waited was about 15 minutes.

I bought a gift card for my granddaughter on 09/30. It's now 10/04 and still no e-mailed gift card as promised by Walmart. My bank account shows it paid out the $50.00 for the card on 09/30. I think Walmart is defrauding gullible folks. I will be making a call to our state's attorney general on Monday to give them a report on this interstate commerce violation.
