Some sad news today in the manufactured spending world. Green Dot variable load Visa Gift Cards (up to $500) can no longer be purchased at Walmart. The news comes from Miles to Memories Facebook Group.
Walmart is no longer allowing credit cards as a form of tender for these Green Dot cards. That means that you can no longer earn credit card rewards. Yes you can still purchase them, but the only payment allowed is cash or debit. This is not just a change in policy but also a change in their system as the new rule is already hard-coded. The switch likely happened either today or yesterday.
Yet another popular option for earning credit card rewards or manufactured spending is dead. The switch is probably nationwide, but it could be worth testing it out at your local store to make sure. RIP!
