Spending money while shopping is probably one of the best feelings in the world, at least, for those who love shopping. It spikes their serotonin levels, well, until it doesn’t because they’re about to pay for a particular item and they see the notification that everyone hates to see – Insufficient funds. Super embarrassing, right?
The thing is that this is not limited to debit cards alone. It can also happen with gift cards, and to avoid being in that situation, let me tell you how to check your Walmart gift card balance. Oh! You didn’t know you could do that? You absolutely can.
Before I dive into all of that, let’s do a little background check into Walmart.
What is Walmart Known for?
Walmart is known as the second-largest retailer in the world, and one of the reasons why they are so popular is because they sell goods at a discounted price. Who doesn’t love a good bargain? Nobody.
Types of Walmart Gift Cards
Just like most huge retail stores in the world, Walmart has two different kinds of gift cards:
1. Physical gift cards
2. Electronic gift cards.
How to Check your Walmart Gift Card Balance
Checking your Walmart gift card balance is as easy as ABC, and can be done in three ways:
1. Visit Walmart’s website
2. Click on ‘Departments’ on the top left
3. Scroll down and leave the cursor on ‘Gift Cards’
4. Click on ‘Check Gift Card Balance’ on the right
5. Put in the required information
6. Click on ‘Get card balance’
It’s as straightforward as that.
2. By Speaking to a Customer Service Agent
If for some reason, you do not have access to the internet, you can call their customer support as long as you have your card with you.
3. By Visiting a Physical Store
Walk into the nearest Walmart store, inform a store assistant that you would like to know what’s left of your gift card, give them the required information, and know your gift card balance in minutes.
Knowing your gift card balance can help you avoid embarrassing situations, plan better, and prevent a case of “Had I known”.
