 I ordered a Visa gift card from Walmart.com for $200 and my credit card was charged $200 plus a $6.88 activation fee.   I have ordered this card before for my daughter and normally I get a e-mail the day the card is shipped with password to activate the card.  

 

This time I did not get the e-mail.  The card arrived and because it is not activated my daughter cannot use the $200.  I called the number the website said to call if you do not have the password 800-411-7942.  You are given the run around, no one knows what you are talking about and they keep telling me I do not need to activate a Walmart gift card.  However, this is not a Walmart gift card this is a Visa gift card and it has to be activated. 

 

Finally, a very rude customer service told me I just have to wait seven days for someone to try to correct the problem.  I told her I do not want to wait seven days,  just refund my account the $206.88.  She hung up.   I cannot get a refund, I cannot activate the card.   I been ripped off by Walmart $206.88 for  a useless piece of plastice.

Walmart gift card scam

AUTHOR: mike - ()

OMG I have just went through the same thing... only losing $75 thankfully.

I bought one of those to purchase a gift online as I don't like to use my credit cards online, and never was given anything I could activate the card with. calling walmart lead to the same responses you shouldn't need to activate the card it should just work etc etc.. well long story short I just threw money away. I could not for the life of me find anyway I could speak to somebody with half a brain to help me. so like so many people I just cut my losses.
