All About Walmart Gift Card Email Delivery
Walmart Gift Card Email Delivery—How Does It Work?
Walmart gift cards are extremely popular—the sheer variety of available types and benefits they provide make it an ideal present, as well as a must-have item.
You might have noticed, though, that your Walmart gift card takes a bit of time to arrive, especially if you ordered it via mail. Luckily, the process is much speedier with eGift Cards—instead of relying on USPS, Walmart sends digital cards to customers directly.
So, how long does it take for it to arrive in your Inbox? In this article, we’re tackling Walmart’s gift card email delivery system—how it works, what is sent/received, and what to do if you can’t find the email in your inbox. You’ll also get pointers on how to order the cards online and where to redeem them.
Can You Order Walmart Gift Cards Online?
Yes, digital gift cards are sold online, on the store’s official website. All you have to do is add the card you like by clicking on it and enter your personal and payment information. Keep in mind that, according to Walmart’s policy, you can’t purchase a gift card using another gift card.
In addition to the store’s official website, you can buy the cards on PayPal, the only other website authorized to issue Walmart gift cards. If you see anyone advertising them on eBay or other online marketplaces—they’re actually reselling.
To purchase a Walmart gift card with your PayPal account, follow these steps:
- Go to the Gifts and select Walmart
- Pick the gift card amount—from $5 to $500
- Select This is for me if you want the card sent to your email
- Choose This is a gift if you want to forward it to someone
How Walmart Sends Gift Cards via Email—The Process Explained
Walmart physical gift cards are delivered via mail, while digital gift cards are sent to the recipient's email directly. The contents of the email include a direct link to the eGift Card, along with other pertinent data, such as:
- ID number
- Four-digit Security Code (PIN)
Without the ID number and PIN, you won’t be able to check your balance or make online purchases, so make sure to save the information.
Walmart gift card email delivery is typically quick, but the official deadline is 48 hours after purchase. Once you receive the email, you can redeem the card using your Walmart account.
Digital cards don’t have to be activated before use, so you won’t get a code or activation instructions. Only plastic cards that are worth more than $250 or bulk orders of 25+ cards need to be activated.
Can't Find Your Walmart Gift Card Delivery Email—What Now?
What should you do if you haven’t received your card within the designated time? Walmart encourages users to check their Spam folder regularly in the 48 hours after purchase. The emails can sometimes get misplaced because of the rigorous spam filtering of most popular mail apps.
You should also check whether you put down the correct email address in the first place. If the address is accurate and you still haven’t received an email, you can request to have the eGift Card resent. You can do it by completing these steps:
- Sign in to your Walmart account
- Click on the Account tab and select Purchase History
- Click on See Details and select Resend
For misplaced Specialty eGift Cards, you’ll have to visit the Walmart Digital Delivery Center. You’ll need to provide certain payment details, such as the billing Zip Code, order number (13 digits starting with 2677), and email address you used for the purchase.
Once you fill in the information and submit the form, you’ll receive an email with further instructions.
Can You Send a Walmart Gift Card via Email?
If the gift card is meant as a present, you can send it directly to the recipient's email. You won’t have to disclose any personal data besides their email address and name.
To send a Walmart gift card via email, follow these steps:
- Sign in to your account
- Find the gift card you like and add it to your cart
- Select the denomination or enter an alternative value between $5 and $500
- Customize the design if you wish—you can make a personalized Walmart gift card with a colorful print or animation
- Fill out the corresponding fields with the following info:
- Recipient's email
- Recipient's name
- Your name
- Click Buy Now when you’re done filling out the form
The eGift Card will be sent as soon as Walmart finalizes the purchase. You can also include a personal message in the email, as well as a digital gift receipt.
Where Can You Redeem Walmart Gift Cards?
Walmart gift cards can be redeemed both online and in-store at:
- Walmart’s official website
- Walmart stores (including Walmart Gas Stations and Neighborhood Markets)
- Sam’s Club stores and the official website
If you want to use your eGift Card for in-store purchases, you’ll have to present the email containing the card or bring a printout. Note that Sam’s Club charges a 10% service fee to non-members, regardless of the gift card value.
When it comes to online shopping, you can combine the Walmart gift card with other payment methods—including cash—or use it individually.
Follow these steps to redeem your gift card online:
- Go to Checkout and select Gift Card as the payment method
- Add the gift card you want to use (it should appear in the Purchase Summary section)
- Enter the four-digit Security Code (PIN) you received via email
- Click Apply Gift Card when you’re done
If the item you’re buying is worth less than the total gift card value, the remaining balance will remain for future purchases.
To make online shopping easier, you can store your gift card in your Walmart account. That way, you won’t have to re-enter the PIN each time. All you have to do is:
- Sign in to your account
- Open the Account tab
- Click on Gift Cards in the Manage Account section
- Choose Add a New Gift Card and enter the required info (ID number, PIN, and name)
- Save the gift card
