If I can give advice to anyone thinking of giving a Walmart gift card: Don't do it. I bought a card for a Xmas gift for my son.
It was under $250 (the amount you need to activate it on your own is $250 up). He went to use it. It was not activated. I called them.
Threw a fit. I was informed it would take 48 hours to activate. I was not happy with that. So, I ge an email two days later informing me the card was now activated.
No reason given as to why it was never activated in the first place. So, my son went to use it the send time. You guessed it. It wasn't activated.
I threw another fit. I demanded a refund. I wasn't going through that again. I have not received my refund yet, and I better.
Soon. Or I'll call my Visa card. No reason was ever given to me why they never activated my card. Very upsetting.
Never shopping at Walmart again.
Lost my business. They don't care about their customers.
