If you're wondering how to check Walmart gift card balances, there are three ways to do it. You can check over the phone, on the computer or at the store. Choose the option most convenient for you.
- Check your Walmart gift card balance over the phone. On the back of the Walmart gift card, a balance inquiry phone number is listed. That number is 1-888-537-5503. Proceed through the automated directions to hear your gift card balance.
- In order to check your gift card balance online, you will need to sign up for a Walmart online account. This requires your first and last name, email address, and year of birth. It asks for your zip code, but providing this information is optional. Finally, you will need to create a password. Go to www.walmart.com/giftcards. When prompted, enter the gift card number. On the back of the gift card, scratch off the silver covering to reveal not only the gift card number, but the pin number as well. After entering both numbers, press “Get Card Balance.” In addition to the balance, it will tell you where the card was purchased.
- Check the Walmart gift card balance at the store. Stop by the customer service desk to ask about the balance on your gift card. Remember, Walmart gift cards can be used at Walmart.com, inside the Walmart stores or if you are a member of Sam's Club, you can use the card there.
Anytime you check the balance on your gift card, be sure to keep that information handy. You can write on the gift card itself with a marker or write the balance on a post-it note and wrap it around the card. Either way, the balance will be immediately accessible the next time you go to use the card.
