In the post below, we will explain the different ways you can check the balance on your card.
If you checked your balance and there is an issue or you have suspicious transactions, we have provided tips below on how to call customer service and speak to a live person.

Walmart does not charge a fee to use this service, but your mobile phone carrier may charge text messaging fees.

Walmart MoneyCard Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the most frequently asked transaction questions about the MoneyCard.
What Does Pending Transaction Mean?
A transaction in a “Pending” status in your MoneyCard account means that purchase may not post to your card for a few days.
To make sure you have enough money for a purchase, merchants request approval for the purchase amount.
This holds the money for them and is considered a “pending” purchase until the merchant actually collects the money from Walmart MoneyCard.
However, once the merchant collects the money from Walmart MoneyCard, that transaction then changes into a “posted” purchase.
You can review both your pending and posted purchases on the Transaction History page in your Walmart MoneyCard account.
Why is the amount pending sometimes different than what I actually spent?
This is common with charges made at hotels, car rentals, and restaurants.
These businesses typically have a policy that requires them to pre-authorize and temporarily hold an amount of money from your card balance that is greater than your actual purchase amount.
However, once your purchase is processed by the merchant, your card balance will reflect the amount of your actual purchase.
The availability of the pre-authorized funds can take up to 10 days (90 days for car rentals) to be released back into your card balance.
Can I deposit cash to my Walmart MoneyCard account using an ATM?
Unfortunately, you cannot deposit cash to a Walmart MoneyCard using an ATM.
However, there are 4 convenient ways to deposit cash to your card:
The first option is using the Walmart MoneyCard app.
Another way of adding cash to your card is by using the Walmart Rapid Reload process.
Third, you can also deposit cash into your account using the MoneyPak service.
Finally, an easy way to add cash to your card is by going to a participating Walmart store and adding cash or by cashing a check and adding the money to your card.
