Whether you received it as a gift or bought it for yourself, a Walmart gift card comes in two forms--plastic and electronic. You can use plastic and electronic gift cards with a personal identification number at any:
- Walmart store
- Walmart gas station
- Sam's Club stores

Some gift cards do not come with a PIN; these cards can only be used at a physical Walmart or Sam's Club stores.
When checking out, swipe your gift card or have the cashier swipe it for you. To use an electronic gift card in a Walmart or Sam's Club store, print it out and bring it to the store with you. The cashier will enter your card number for you. If you do not have enough money on your gift card to cover the purchase, you'll need to provide another form of payment to make up the difference.
To make a purchase online, add each item to your online shopping cart. When you checkout, on the payment page, choose the "Use a Walmart Gift Card" option for payment and enter the card number and PIN.
At a Walmart gas station, choose the pay inside option at the pump, pump your gas, and then take your card to the cashier to finish the transaction. If you want to use the electronic gift card at a Walmart gas station, bring in the print out of the coupon to a Walmart store and exchange it for a plastic gift card first. Then use the plastic card at the pump.
