The Walmart MoneyCard* is a reloadable prepaid Visa debit card that only costs $3 to purchase, does not require a bank account or credit check, and never has overdraft fees. Customers buying new Walmart MoneyCards will be automatically enrolled in the cash-back program, while customers who already have Walmart MoneyCards will find it easy to enroll. The cash back will be added to the Walmart MoneyCard balance.
I just found out yesterday that tmy walmart money card balance was zero. I was trying to make a payment over the phone and it was being declined. So I check my card and it said balance was zero. I got worried since i had $600. I check online the transactions, it showed that purchases had been made at some winie Dixie in Florida twice, leaving my card clean. I called customer service and they said I need to wait since those transactions are still pending. But what should i do? Am I getting my money back.
So how do you keep an eye on your Walmart MoneyCard balance? One way to do so is to go to your nearest Walmart store. When you make a purchase using your card, the remaining balance will show up at the bottom of your receipt. You can also ask the clerk to scan your card just to check and see what it is. Additionally, if your Walmart has a MoneyCenter Express machine you can check your balance there, just like you would at an ATM.
Unlike with some other debit cards and , it's very important to know your Walmart MoneyCard balance each time you make a purchase. The reason is that you have no safety net: no overdraft protection or connected accounts. If you don't have enough money on your card, your transaction will be declined. This could cause you some embarrassment, and you won't be able to make your purchase.
