My grandma gifted all of her grandkids a 25$ walmart gift card Visa. Out of 10 cards, only 3 worked.

When I tried to register my card online by entering the 16 digit number and 3 digit security code it states that the card is "Invalid". Don't know if walmart is scamming people or a specific employee. A couple of my cousins took their cards into customer service and were unable to get the money because they did not have the receipt.

Same thing happened to me Christmas Eve last year. I got a pair of jeans that were too big.

I brought them back. So they give me s gift card. The jeans were 10$. Well when I got ready to use that 10.

They told me I had done got that 20!!!! Off the card. I asked for manager. They said Mrs u done got your 20.

Told them the card was 10 dollars. Not 20 and haven't got 10 or 20..and they was nothing they could do..So someone got 20 for Christmas# walmart .bogalusa la.

I received a $50.00 Walmart gift card from my brother for Christmas in 2017. I have never used the card because I just keep forgetting I have it.

On day in the Spring of 2019, I remembered that I had it while checking out at Walmart and was so happy to use it. Well, I swiped the card and the register girl told me the card was declined, and that I needed to register it. Well, I have attempted to register it and check my balance on the Walmartgift.com and I am give a message that states "invalid gift card information". So I then call the number on the back of the card and I am not given the option to speak to a customer service representative.

My brother who lives in Louisiana buys gift cards from Walmart every year for his siblings and I will be telling him never buy from Walmart again. They are scammers with these stupid gift cards. My brother has lost tons of money and the family has not been able to benefit from the gift cards.

Walmart sucks for allowing this scam to go on and on. They were probably made in China, a country that is not adverse to scams....

Why not just go to the bank and get a whole bunch of brand new never before circulated one dollar bills and give them as gifts??? They'd be less likely to spend them all in one place!

I read one Facebook post where someone went through the same thing. The person that made the post said the card had the money on it because they used it at a gas station, The problem was the website was saying invalid card.

I purchased a 35 dollar Visa Gift Card at Walmart the receipt said it was loaded with 35 dollars. Went to register the card and it said invalid card information. Some people say since the card is registered at checkout that's why the website fails, the problem with that is the website also fails to give you the balance on the card saying invalid card information.

Walmart should really get their act together. If people want to get a gift card go to an actual bank and get one then it will work.

Wow!!! There's no better way to say "I really don't love you" than to buy a gift card from Walmart rather than give you $25 in cash. Maybe grandma was afraid, if she gave you cash, that you'd use it on ***

and maybe nobody needs you to tell them how they should or shouldn't spend their money. Clearly you wouldn't understand it is the 'thought that counts' if that bites you onto the butt.
