One of the main functions you can perform at www.walmartmoneycard.com is the card activation function. The card we are making reference to here is, of course, the Walmart MoneyCard, for which the site is set up. The way these sorts of cards work is such that, upon receipt (by the users) they first have to be activated, before they can start to be used.
Initiating the card activation process at www.walmartmoneycard.com
To initiate the card activation process at www.walmartmoneycard.com, you need to select the ‘Set Up and Activate’ main menu item. At this point, you will be given two options, in terms of the activation procedure you can use. One is that for cards received via mail. The other one is for cards bought in stores.
Once you select the ‘set up and activate’ option in the main navigation menu, you will be taken to a page where you can do exactly that. There is a notification, on that particular page, to the effect that it is a secure page. You will also notice a notification, on that particular page, to the effect that you can set up your card there ‘in three simple steps.’
Categories of information you need to enter for card activation
There are three main categories of information that you need to enter for card activation purposes, namely:
- Card information: in this regard, there are two details that you will probably be required to enter at www.walmartmoneycard.com, the first one being the temporary card number (a 16-digit number), and the other one being a signature code (a 3-digit number), also referred to as a security code.
- Personal information: in this respect, you will find yourself having to enter your full name (including the middle initial), your birth date, your social security number and your address. You are also required, on the activation page, to enter the card pin.
- Contact information: in this regard, you will be required to enter an email address, a mobile phone number as well as a home phone number.
You will be required, at this stage, to either allow or disallow the people behind the Walmart MoneyCard to send you promotional texts/emails.
Then you can click on the ‘continue’ button to be taken to the next step in the card activation process.
Note that some of the details entered on the card activation page are very sensitive details. There is warning to the effect that you need to ensure that you are on the genuine site, dealing with the real people behind the Walmart MoneyCard, before entering the details. There is also a warning against giving these details to callers (who tend to be scammers).
