I love using giftcards, and I shop at Walmart pretty regularly. However, every time I attempt to use a Walmart giftcard, it never goes through.
I slide it, it gets denied, I try again, denied again. The cashier at this point usually takes the card, punches a bunch of keys, and then asks me how much money is on the card. If it's new, I can tell them, but once I've used it, *** if I know how much is on it! Am I supposed to keep up with that??
Why can't it just take the balance off? The cashier will punch some more keys, slide it on their machine, start heaving a heavy sigh, call over a manager, and start the whole process again. I usually just get frustrated at this point and end up paying with another card to stop holding up the line. Fix your giftcards Walmart!!
This is ridiculous! How are we supposed to use them if they never go through!?
