Yes, Walmart accepts American Express gift cards online. So, if you love shopping at Walmart online, no need to fear!
When you check out, you will need to ensure you enter the card digits as well as the four-digit security code. So, don’t forget about the security code!
Now, let’s get into potential restrictions or issues you may face when trying to pay with your American Express gift card. Unfortunately, some customers have had some issues in the past.
Firstly, let’s discuss restrictions. Walmart’s policy states that you can only use up to five gift cards and one debit or credit card per order.
So, if you don’t have enough money on your American Express gift card, you can split the payment with one gift card, another gift card (if you have it), or your debit or credit card.
But you cannot use more than five gift cards per order!
Thankfully, that’s the only main restriction that Walmart has when it comes to American Express gift cards.
However, we should note a few issues that some customers have come across.
For example, let’s say you’re using your American Express gift card to shop at Walmart online. You go to order, yet the order doesn’t go through. They won’t let you use your gift card to pay.
Why is this? Often, this occurs when you do not have enough money on your gift card. Ensure that you have enough and try again. If the problem persists, you could try getting in touch with Walmart’s customer service to see what else to do.
It’s also worth noting that you might not be able to split payments between different cards online. So, you’ll have to have the entire order’s price on your gift card!
Normally, this only happens when shopping online. When using your card in-store, the payment just won’t go through at all if you don’t have enough money on it!
Yes, Walmart does sell American Express gift cards! Much like other gift cards, you can choose preloaded gift cards ($50, $100, etc) at Walmart.
However, you can also buy American Express gift cards and choose your own specific balance — as long as that balance is between $25 and $200.
You can buy American Express gift cards both in-store at Walmart, as well as on their website!
There are many stores, other than Walmart, that accept American Express gift cards. Basically, any store that already accepts regular American Express cards will accept these gift cards.
These stores include, but aren’t limited to:
- Home Depot
Walmart accepts American Express gift cards both in-store and online. You can easily swipe or scan the card to use it. If you have any issues, a Walmart employee can quickly help you.
If you have issues buying online with this gift card, it’s likely because your gift card balance is less than the order’s total!
