Gift Cards

If you want to buy someone a gift but you're having trouble figuring out what to get for them, a gift card can be a great solution. Maybe you don't know them well enough to be certain what they want. Or maybe you simply don't know what they want. That's OK, and there's no need to guess. With a Walmart gift card, they can choose whatever their heart desires from a seemingly endless selection of products.

Shop for gift cards by the occasion to find special designs for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries or graduations. Or add a personal touch by choosing a card that reflects the recipient's interests, whether a fan of sports, cats or cupcakes. There are so many possibilities.

Walmart makes gift card giving easy. You can give a traditional, plastic gift card or order an eGift Card, which will be sent to the recipient's email inbox. Either kind can be redeemed at Walmart or Sam's Club stores or at Walmart.com or SamsClub.com.

If you'd prefer to give the gift of an experience, Walmart carries specialty gift cards for restaurants, movie theaters and other entertainment, plus retail, travel and more. There are also gift cards from major credit card companies, which are safer than cash, more flexible than gift certificates and single merchant gift cards and can be used wherever the card is accepted.

Plastic gift cards

Surprise someone with a plastic gift card. Just order the style and dollar amount of your choice, then have it sent to them in the mail. They'll thank you for remembering them with such a thoughtful surprise.

The Basic Blue Walmart Gift Card makes a wonderful choice for family and friends because it lets them pick out exactly what they want. Choose a money denomination between $10 and $100. It's easy because the most popular amounts have already been predetermined for you. Just select one and quickly move through the checkout process.

For orders of $250 and higher, or 25 gift cards and higher, Walmart will send you an email about how to activate them. The cards can be used:

  • For purchases at Walmart.com and at Walmart stores in the US.
  • For purchases by Sam's Club members at Sam's Club stores in the US and at SamsClub.com.
  • For purchases at VUDU.com.
  • In stores just present the Walmart gift card at checkout.
  • Online enter the gift card number and the PIN, which is listed on the back of gift card, during checkout. The PIN provides a more secure online shopping experience.

As you make purchases, the gift card amount decreases. You can add to the gift card balance anytime at a Walmart store. You can also check your card's balance anytime that's convenient for you in stores or online.

Specialty gift cards

Specialty gift cards are plastic, just like the Basic Blue Gift Card, but there are a wide variety of designs to provide that little extra personalization. Cards are available in designs featuring Sports, Animal Friends, Baby Clothesline, wedding Roses and wedding rings, Graduation Gown and more.

There are also gift cards for a wide variety of restaurants like Starbucks, Subway, Olive Garden, Taco Bell, Domino's, Chick-fil-A, Outback Steakhouse, Applebees, Red Lobster, Burger King, Red Robin, Papa John's and many more. Does the recipient love movies? How about an AMC Theatre Gift Card? Are they a fan of music? What could be better than an iTunes Gift Card? That way, they can select exactly the music they want, anytime they want. A Google Play gift card will give the recipient a variety of apps and other content to choose from.

Other possibilities include a Visa or MasterCard gift card. This is a great option because it's redeemable anywhere that Visa or MasterCard are accepted and that's practically everywhere, with millions of merchant locations across the US. They also come decorated with a colorful gift and bow on the front.

eGift cards

If you don't want to wait for the plastic card to be sent to your recipient, you can send an eGift Card between $5 and $200. And you can spruce up the email with a colorfully designed message. eGift Cards are convenient for you and fun for them. They arrive immediately by email, or within 48 hours at the most. Just select the money denomination and add the card to your cart. Walmart will send you an email that includes the Walmart eGift Card number, a PIN, instructions for use on Walmart.com and a barcode with instructions for use in stores. Just forward the email to your chosen recipient and let them start shopping.

FAQs

Can I buy a restaurant gift card with a Walmart gift card? ›

Unfortunately, as of 2022, Walmart doesn't allow customers to purchase other gift cards using an existing gift card. Walmart doesn't allow gift card consolidation, either. It means you can't combine several Walmart gift cards to buy a new one. The good news is that Walmart gift cards don't expire.
