Does Amazon Accept Gift Cards From Walmart?
Does Amazon Allow Gift Cards From Walmart?
Many stores in the U.S. sell gift cards—they are always a great option if your inspiration runs low when thinking about a perfect gift for someone. Besides letting the recipient choose what they want, gift cards are a convenient option also because the person you buy them for can redeem them in stores or use them online.
The only problem with gift cards is that they are restrictive in terms of where you can use them. Some gift cards are exclusive to certain stores, while others can be used in several places. In this respect, if you have a Walmart gift card lying around, you may wonder—does Amazon accept gift cards from Walmart?
Our article provides the answer to this question and teaches you how to get free gift cards with Mode Mobile’s products.
Can You Use Walmart Gift Cards on Amazon?
The answer to this question is no. Amazon and Walmart are direct competitors. It's only natural that Amazon would try to discourage its customers from going to another retailer to do their shopping.
For the same reason, Walmart removed all Amazon and Amazon-related products from its shelves and its online store. As Walmart sees it, every Amazon product purchased from its shelves is an opportunity to lose a customer, which especially made sense at the time when Walmart didn't have an online store. The fear of losing customers to a retailer that offered the convenience of shopping from the comfort of their home turned out to be quite realistic.
Where Can You Use a Walmart Gift Card?
Below is a list of all places that accept Walmart gift cards:
- Walmart stores
- Walmart’s website
- Walmart Marketplace
- Walmart Neighborhood Market
- Sam's Club stores and website
You can also use a Walmart gift card to pay for gas on all Walmart gas stations and select Murphy USA fuel stations. Note that you can't use these gift cards at Murphy Express.
It is also important to remember that gift cards purchased in the U.S. can only be used within the States. They will not be valid in any affiliate company overseas.
Can You Buy a Walmart Gift Card on Amazon?
Amazon and Walmart target the same customers, so they don't want to sell their biggest rival’s gift cards. You can't buy an Amazon gift card at Walmart, and there’s no option for purchasing a Walmart gift card on Amazon.
You can buy many other gift cards on Amazon, though. Besides a wide selection of its own gift cards that come in various formats and styles, you can also buy:
- Uber gift cards
- Nordstrom gift cards
- Cracker Barrel gift cards
- Google Play gift cards
- Starbucks gift cards
Where Can You Buy Walmart Gift Cards?
Walmart offers both physical and eGift cards. You can buy them at Walmart stores and on the retailer’s website. You can also get them from Sam's Club, both online and in stores, since this chain is owned by Walmart. Besides these locations, PayPal is the only third-party website authorized to sell Walmart gift cards.
No other retailers sell Walmart gift cards. If you see that third-party sellers offer Walmart gift cards on websites such as eBay, Amazon, or Gyft, it's advisable not to buy from them. You can't be sure that these gift cards are valid.
Although Walmart gift cards are not available at unaffiliated stores, you will have no problem acquiring them as there are over 4,700 Walmart locations all over the United States. There are also ways to get Walmart and Amazon gift cards for free.
How Can You Get Gift Cards for Free?
There are several ways to get Walmart and Amazon gift cards for free:
- Participate in giveaways
- Sign up for reward programs
- Take advantage of trade-in programs
- Use reward-based platforms
Gift Card Giveaways
Walmart has two gift card giveaway options. It organizes Walmart gift card sweepstakes quarterly, and you can participate even without making a purchase. The Green Dot corporation that issues the Walmart MoneyCard also sponsors Walmart MoneyCard Prize Saving Sweepstakes, where you have a chance to win gift cards every month. You don't even have to own a Walmart MoneyCard.

The devices don't have to be functional, but their condition will affect how much you can get for them. Here is how it works:
- Send your old device (shipping is free in both cases)
- Receive an offer
- Get a Walmart eGift card or updated balance in your Amazon account for the corresponding amount
The easiest way to get gift cards without any charges is with the help of free reward apps. These apps let you collect points while completing various tasks on your phone, including:
- Doing surveys
- Scanning barcodes
- Downloading partner apps
Once you collect a certain number of points, you can redeem them for various rewards like gift cards.
Which activities you can do to collect points depend on the app you choose. Some apps give you only one or two options to earn points, but you should aim for those that provide you with numerous opportunities to profit.
Since there are many different apps to choose from, it is crucial to pick wisely. Many of them are unreliable, and it can get increasingly difficult to collect points with time.
Security must be your primary concern when choosing which app to download. You can easily see how reliable an app is because the best ones will have:
- Many users
- Numerous positive reviews
- High ratings on Google Play
- Many partners
The more partners the app has, the more options you will have to collect points and make more money.
