WalMart

Postby FutureBillionaire » Wed Mar 13, 2013 4:37 pm

Walmart in my neighborhood shows up on the link below as a grocery store. How many folks here have their local Walmart show up as a grocery store?

Visa USA | Corporate & Government | Visa Supplier Locator

Thanks to whoever gave me this link. I think it was DavidNY.

Super Walmart = grocery store, but it could be only at certain "food" areas in the store.

I think purchases that arent' made in the electronics area in the back of the store probably count. I'm going to try it out, although I hate Walmart.

I love Walmart, its generally a hell of a lot cheaper than the grocery store. My local Walmart isn't a Super Walmart, and it doesn't show up as a grocery store through any of the credit card network codes. However one of the Super Wawas I use to get gas counts as a gas station (even if you buy food or deli or whatever from inside), but another one with identical services offered shows up as a miscellaneous grocery store even if I'm buying gasoline. Go figure.

Walmart Neighborhood Markets are standalone grocery stores that aren't Walmarts or Super Walmarts. So cards that limit groceries rewards to stand alone grocery stores should work there.
Cards:
American Express Platinum (NPSL)
Penfed Platinum Reward Visa ($28K)
Chase Freedom Visa ($25K)
Fidelity American Express ($20K)
American Express Blue Cash Preferred ($20K)
Bank of America Cash Rewards MasterCard ($20K)
Citi Thank You Preferred Visa ($9.5K)
Chase Sapphire Preferred ($7.5K)
US Bank Cash + Visa Signature ($7K)
Discover IT ($4K)

Test a small amount purchase using US Cash + visa. When the charge appears on credit card, download it by selecting excel option. Look at the 4 digit MCC code. If it is 5411, there should not an issue in getting cash back equal to that for grocery.

That link I used showed it as 5411. I'm going to test it for some stuff I guess. I hate shopping in there though.

I would think it does. Even though Amex excludes Walmart as grocery store for 5% cashback, I still get it when I make a purchase with them. I tested a purchase at Target with my Freedom card and posted as grocery. Even though they exclude Target, I'm hoping to see I get the bonus when statement cuts.
