How to check a Walmart Visa Gift Card Balance

Before you use any of the following options to check your balance, you will need to have the 16-digit gift card number and 3-digit PIN ready in hand.

How to check by phone

1. Call the toll-free number located on the back of your Walmart Visa gift card.

2. When you call, follow the phone menu prompts to check the balance of your gift card.

How to check online

Visit www.walmartgift.com and enter in your gift card number (which is found on the front of the card), PIN, and expiration date. In addition to being able to check your balance on this page, you can also register your card and find store locations where Walmart Visa gift cards are sold. In order to shop online, by phone or mail, you must register your card.

How to check at Walmart stores

If you’re headed out to do some shopping at Walmart anyway, you can ask a store associate to check the balance of your gift card at any cash register. Be sure to know the balance of your gift card before making a purchase. If the item is greater than the balance your transaction may be declined.

Granny Tip: When purchasing an item that is larger than the balance of your Walmart Visa gift card, you can use another form of payment for the remaining amount. Inform the cashier of the specific amount you’d like to use from your Walmart Visa gift card. The remaining balance can be paid using a debit card, credit card or cash.
