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.

    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 [protected]@#%&* 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 [protected]@%&*, 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.

    i tried the money card. At first I thought it was great since my kids are always looking for cash. Well I was almost out of gas and I went to this automated pumps, you know the kind the ones if you have a complaint there is no one to talk to, anyway later I wanted to get groceries and found out I couldn't because my fuel transaction was 35.00 instead of the 13.29 I fueled up with. It is after 10 olcock and I can't talk to anyone until tomorrow because they are closed. This makes me mad because I work paycheck to paycheck and I only had 24.oo left on the card and now with 21.71 missing I only have 2.62. I don't get paid again for another two weeks and now I have only a few groceries in the house. I know I am whining but it really ticks me off.

    I too purchased the card two months ago. I used it to join Columbia House. I bought $17.40 worth of dvd's but the money just disappeared. Columbia House said they had trouble collecting payment and cannot activate my membership until I make a purchase with a check or money order. Walmart owes me about $35 for this sorry a-- card. A class action law suit is a must to stop this ripp-off. The public must me be alerted!!

THERE'S A GOOD LORD UP ABOVE THAT SEE'S WHAT WAL-MART IS STEALING FROM ME. ALL I CAN DO IS PUT IT IN THE GOOD LORDS HANDS. wal-mart should be a shame taking someone that's disable like myself or anyone else. i will also call the CREDIT BUREAU ON WAL-MART for false adversting about the wal-mart money card. now i have to do with out my 14 meds i take each month because of FREAKING WAL-MARTS MONEY CARD. i thought i was doing the right thing at the time i got the wal-mart monry card. i have a copy of what i typed my name is peggy m. venable

    NO ###  this card SUCKS  we put 300.00 dollars on it and used it once to pay for our hotel which was around $111.  so that left around   $180 or so.  that night got message on phone saying our balance was 172 the next morning another message said balance was 159. and we didn't even use the damn card but that one time.  Well we went to another hotel and used the card by putting 100 towards the room that should ahve left $59 or so.  got a message on cell said balance was 0  how in the hell did that happen.  I would like to have my 70 or so dollars back THANK YOU yea I'll go along with a lawsuit..

    This is a complete and total rip off. i purchased a one hundred dollar money Visa gift card. The card is showing a zero balance, the transaction history is claiming to have a debit to the site i was trying to use it on yet the site administrator, who is a personal friend, has not received any funds. The automated system as well as the store where i got the card are completely useless...i have no idea where my money went.

    i am never spending another dime in Walmart again.

    THIS WALMART PREPAID CARD IS A HUGE RIPOFF. YOU PURCHASE IT SO THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO PURCHASE THINGS ON THE INTERNET AND IN MAGAZINES SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE OUT YOUR REAL CARD NUMBERS. I PURCHASED MINE FOR $9.95 DOLLARS. THEN I FOUND OUT IT WOULD COST ME $4.95 TO RELOAD IT. WHEN I WENT TO USE IT THE CARD WAS DECLINED. I HAD A TOTAL OF $157.00 DOLLARS ON IT. I TRIED TO CALL THE CARD SERVICE PLACE AND THEY TOLD ME IT WOULD COST $2.00 DOLLARS TO TALK TO SOMEONE. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? AFTER ALL THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THEY MAKE IN A DAY. LEAVE THIS CARD ALONE IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SCAMMED. I AM GOING TO EMPTY IT AND BE DONE WITH IT. I EVEN KNOW OF A GUY WHO WAS RIPPED OFF OF SOME OF THE MONEY HE HAD COMING TO HIM AND THEY CLAIMED HE DIDN'T. RUN FROM THIS SOCIAL INJUSTICE AS FAST AS YOU CAN...
    THEY SHOULD BE CALLED THE FRAUDMART PREPAID VISA CARD...

    I have bought several walmart visa prepaid cards and have never gotten the card that they were suppose to send in the mail. The last card i purchased, when i tried to load it, they said i already had too many visa cards and would'nt let me load it, but they said i would get a complete refund in 7-10 buiseness days and that was a month ago. So when am i going to get my refund? My name is Micheal J. Wagers 110 Sasser Road London, Ky. 40744 . Please respond immediately.!!!

    Yea, my friend was confused and got it for me as a wedding gift (thinking it was just a gift card...not too bright sometimes). She put $40.00 on it, i only got to used $22 of it because of all the activation charges and charges when you use it. I was so mad! She just spent 40 dollars on plastic so i could use barely half of it! Walmart makes enough money as is. They should not be allowed to charge people such extravagant amounts. JUST GO GET A BANK ACCOUNT PEOPLE! MUCH EASIER AND SAFER!!! And no charges to start it up!
