Where to Buy Walmart Gift Cards Besides Walmart (Not Amazon)

Because Walmart is one of the most visited stores in the country, Walmart gift cards are some of the most practical to give. They have no expiration date and are reloadable. Walmart even allows you to cash out cards when the balance dips below $10. Because Walmart is a major competitor for most retailers, you will not find Walmart gift cards at nearly any of the other stores that sell gift cards near you. Not even Amazon sells them. You must either buy from Walmart or Sam’s Club — either in-store or online.

Buying a Walmart Gift Card In-Store at Walmart or Sam’s Club

You knew that you could buy a gift card from the checkout line at your local Walmart, but did you know that you can also get one from Sam’s Club? These two stores are owned by the same company, and their gift cards can be used at either store. Even if the card has a Sam’s Club label, it will be honored at Walmart, as well. If you have a Sam’s Club membership, you may want to try it out.

  • Amounts Available: According to a store representative, customers can buy gift cards for any amount up to $5,000.
  • Payment methods accepted: Credit cards, ATM/debit/check cards, PayPal, cash, checks

Buying a Walmart Gift Card Online From Walmart or Sam’s Club

There are two types of gift cards available online: physical gift cards and e-gift cards. Physical gift cards are typically mailed to the recipient when purchased, while e-gift cards are emailed to you with the gift card number, pin number, and instructions for use. E-gift cards are easiest to use online, but they are also honored in stores.
