Unfortunately, you cannot exchange Walmart gift cards for cash at the current time. This is because Walmart would essentially lose the money that was ‘meant’ to be in their stores for items or food.

If you still have money left over on your Walmart gift card, the company will hold onto it until there is a zero balance. This means that if you buy something and pay for part of it with your card and then decide not to purchase the rest of the items, then you will have to use the remaining balance another time.

Does Walmart Gift Cards Charge Any Fees?

At the moment, no. You will not be charged any fees when you purchase a Walmart gift card or when you use your entire balance. This is one of the main reasons they’re so popular among consumers and why they’re probably more successful than most other retailer gift cards in the US that charge fees.
