You have just purchased or received a Walmart MoneyCard as a gift? A Walmart MoneyCard is basically a debit card, which works almost the same way as a credit card when it comes to making payments. The only difference is that the spending limit consists only of a prepaid amount. Apart from shopping, you can use it for other purposes such as traveling. Whenever the balance on the card gets low, you can reload it.
The good thing about this card is that you can give it to a son or daughter aged between 16 and 17 years as part of their allowance. When you lose the card, you can report it to Walmart and they will give you a replacement. After that, you will need to activate your new Walmart MoneyCard.
Who Qualifies for a Walmart MoneyCard?
If you are 18 years or older, you qualify for a Walmart Money Card. Your credit rating and whether you have a bank account are not requirements. Minors aged between 16 and 17 will be issued with the card with parental permission. Even with a single account, you will be able to get more than one card. All purchases and fees will be charged on the same account.

my name is orville hart, my wife purchased a debit master card on april 12 in the amount
of $175. I followed the instructions to register and activate the card, but at the end of the
process I was advised that my records submitted did not match with the data I provided.
I was advised that no refunds will be issued, and I can only make purchases.
it was further stated no online transactions can be done on this card.
I am therefore making an appeal to reconsider this decision that will allow me to get a refund
or to allow me to initiate an online transaction.
