Checking the
Walmart Gift Card Balance

With your 16-digit card number and PIN, you can check the balance of a Walmart Gift Card either online here, in a Walmart store or by calling 1-888-537-5503.

Finding PIN on a Plastic Gift Card


A PIN is a Personal Identification Number that is unique to your 
Walmart Gift Card. It is located on the back of your gift card in the bottom right corner under the silver scratch-off area.

If You Don’t Have a PIN

If you have a plastic gift card that doesn’t have a PIN, you can use it at a store but you cannot use it online at Walmart.com. For your security, Walmart.com can only accept cards with a PIN. Without a pin you cannot check the balance of a Walmart Gift Card, but you can trade it in for a new card with a PIN at any local Walmart store or Sam’s Club in the United States.
