I don't understand how they can add money to your card or even give you multipul cards, issue account safe guards, ect. Almost anything besides allow you to E-mail a customer service representitive to answer your concerns. Atleast before a month has elapsed. No instead you have to write a letter and wait over two weeks to get a response. I used a atm and agreed to the three dollars sur-charge ahead of time, then on top of that they threw some two-dollars charge defined as a [BP]. Thats not right.

plus they say on the temporarity card that you can do direct desposit. But you can not direct desposit from your checking account. Not allowed. Only from you pay check or social security. Not mention the two dollar charge to talk to a service representative is bull. This card is worthless to me. And they charge $4.95 per month service charge. This card is basically a rip off. I would think the service charge would include talking to a service rep., and not $2 more for that each time. Stay away, get another card. Oh, and there are other charges but I am tired of typing.

i'm mad as heck about this card...i put 20.oo dollars on this card last evening at 7 p.m. and its 12 pm the next day and the money is still not on the card..this is nothing but a rip-off...went back to wal-mart and they told me to wait 24-48 hrs..and check the card again...but i put this money on there for a reason..to pay for somerthing i wanted to order...and now i can't order it because the dang money is not there...i will not use this card ever again...so in other words i was just ripped off from wal-mart for 24.84 dollars...and i think its a dang shame...

just imagine how many thousands of people that this has happened to all around the country..they are probably making millions of dollars in clear profit from just this card alone...cause once you put the money on there, and its not there..it has to go to someones account, so it must go to there account...is this how wal-mart has made the millions that they have made, from hard working people that put their money on these cards and then they can't even use it...i think some type of government officials should be looking into this matter..and stopping this rip-off from the american customers

I realized too late that this is a ripoff. It will probably change my mind about dealing with Walmart in the future. I'm trying to cancel the card after putting money on the temp card to use to purchase gas at the station that will accept Walmart gift cards. I thought that the Visa could be used the same way at other locations as the Walmart (Smiley Face) card. Now I can't get thru to them to cancel the card. I have used up all the $ on the temp card, but how can I cancel the perm card? This problem needs to be addressed . THANK GOD I DID'T ACTIVATE THE PERMANENT CARD THEY SENT ME. I was told on the phone that it would cost a $2.00 fee. It's only $2.00 but -------try and get it WALMART!

This is the biggest scam since government grants. Someone needs to do something about this. We all need to get together and file a class action law suit against WalMart and affiliates. I too got suckered into this card AND TO DATE CAN NOT USE IT. 300.00 to pay for my ebay purchases and now they still arent paid for. My 100% positive feed back just went to hell. This isnt the kind of company I want to purchase anything from. WalMart you just lost a very good customer. I'm serious about the suit. Any takers?

I to is having problems with the card. It is very misleading. I wish I would have followed my first mind, I have a netspend card and just needed to add money to it, but didn't want to drive far to load money onto the netspend card, instead I stopped at walmart and brought a walmart prepaid card. I added $80.00 to the card come home to activate it online and have yet to find the website. When I went to www.walmartmoneycard.com they give me several sites and I believe only one of them was the website in the pull down menu it says activate but nothing comes up. What am I doing wrong or is this an attempt for them to get me to call and activate so that they can charge me $2.00. I don't understand the website they tell you to go on to activate the temporary card www.walmartprepaid.com. There is not a site for this, why on earth are there so many ripoffs and of all the places walmart a franchise that is very large and everyone usually loves walmart, but something as simple as a visa debit card can truly make you change your mind about the store in general because people normally spend a tremendous amount of money at this store. You would think they would treat their customers better then this, what a shame.

Walmart moneycard is a well planed robbery, with the assistance of Walmart and AT&T. They are stealing me everyday and I have no way of stopping them! They have no phone # that I could talk to a live person, no address on the card and no e-mail address to contact. They are constantly texmessaging me everyday, with a cahrge and AT&T refuse to stop them. Walmart managers off of 635 W, in Dallas, Texas, said that they will continue to sell the card and what happends to the public is not their problemm.

I just bought my first walmart visa cause my son said it works for him. So I paid the fee and added the minimum $20.00 on it. When I got home to activate it, I first tried on line. I sat there 15 minutes after I clicked on the activate tab and NOTHING . I stayed at the home page, so I figured they were having difficulties with the site, so I called the number on the card. Everything was going fine until I got the human person to verify my identity. Three d@#%&* times she asked me my name, to spell it and my social security number, she kept telling me she could not verify my identity. So now I have to fax a copy of my social, utility bill and my activation number on my receipt, after they verify they will notify me by email in 48 hrs if I was approved.That is bulls@%&*, I was told no credit check, anyone can get one, well I am proving not anyone. So now what, I use the $20.00 and get screwed out of the $8.94 AND the $1.06 tax I was charged. This does sound like a scam, they pick and choose who to screw over.
