Walmart will exchange gift cards from 200 other retailers

  1. Dec 26, 2014 #1
    There have been several other smaller companies doing this for a few years now. It looks like Walmart is getting into it big time. I checked and my $100 Home Depot card is worth $87 at Walmart. How can I resist a deal kike that?

    I expect to see a pic of some gizmo you've made from your card purchases. :cool:

    Weird, but I guess taking a loss might make sense if you either have no use for the other retailer's merchandise, or you save enough on something at Walmart to make up for the loss. I'm careful shopping at Walmart, a lot of their products cost more than at other stores, and I am talking everyday prices, not a sale, but they carry products I like that other stores don't carry. Oddly, Walmart carries more high quality and gourmet foods than even the high end overpriced store here.

    The "Zip-Lock" packaging is a plus.

    Just hang out in Home Depot and sell it to someone buying a lot for $95. Let them come with you while an employee verifies the amount on the card or something. Don't just give Wal-Mart $13 so easily.
