Walmart Gift Card Update
The other day I covered a deal for $25 Walmart gift cards for $10. At the time I highlighted that the deal might be a mistake and indeed that appears to be the case. On Saturday my order was cancelled along with the orders of many others.
Thankfully there seems to be a slight sliver of good news among the cancellations. If you hop on chat with Walmart, they will agree to give you a gift card for free. Here is the text from a chat my wife did just a few minutes ago.
I was checking your order information, and I’m sorry, your order was cancelled due to a pricing error, so all the orders are been cancelled, you will be refunded within 7 days to your original payment method. As a one time compensation, we decided to issue a $15 gift card for you, you will get it within 48 hours via e mail.
My wife did push for more compensation, but only $15 was offered. She accepted and then I hopped on the chat. While I was only expecting a $15 gift card offer on my order, the agent proactively offered a $25 gift card, so it seems they have some leeway.
Update: My wife hopped on chat again and was able to get them to increase the offer to $25.
How to Get Your Credit
It seems that this gift card is being offered to everyone, so you just need to ask by hopping on a chat here. I don’t know if you’ll get $15 or $25, but it never hurts to ask. When I did it a few minutes ago the wait was surprisingly less than 1 minute. It may go up, but be patient or try another time. Good luck!
