Walmart is one of the largest retailers in the US. And while they have been at the top of the market for decades, they are still behind Amazon in the massive e-commerce market in which they are trying to carve out their own share.

So, since Amazon is a direct Walmart competitor, Walmart doesn’t want to aid Amazon in any way. That means you won’t be able to find or use Amazon gift cards at Walmart.

This is the same for just about any Amazon product including the Amazon Kindle or the Amazon Fire Stick.

Can I Use A Walmart Gift Card Online?

Yes, you can use Walmart gift cards to pay for your online purchases. On top of that, customers can even save up to five different gift cards in their account, which makes it much easier to use the cards for your purchases.

On top of that, you can also use unregistered gift cards for your purchase. To do this, you will need to input the PIN while making the purchase.

And if your Walmart gift card isn’t enough to cover the purchase, you can also use the gift card alongside other payment methods such as debit and credit cards, cash, or checks.


If you have a Walmart gift card, you can use it for just about any product you can find in-store and online at Walmart. However, there are some restrictions and limitations.

For one, Walmart doesn’t allow you to use a Walmart gift card to buy other gift cards in their store. So, if you’re looking to exchange your Walmart gift card for another prepaid gift card, you won’t be able to do that.

Additionally, the person who bought the gift card can also put certain restrictions such as not allowing you to use it to buy alcohol and tobacco products.
