Walmart cash back on credit cards: best way to get it?

Postby DR_MCGILL » Sun Dec 16, 2012 1:07 pm

Are there any credit cards that offer cash back shopping at Walmart?

Is Walmart a 5% back department store for US bank cash plus?

I guess you could shop online and use the Discover card, but that's only until the end of the year.

Any other methods?

Thanks all.

Only way you can get 5% at Walmart is using ShopDiscover online and pick up from stores.

Walmart is NOT department store. Walmart is labeled as discount store or warehouse.

You are missing the point. All 5% to 20% discounts on ShopDiscover get you specified cashback irrespective of MCC- Merchant Category Code because you are entering the site from ShopDiscover.

Walmart in store purchses using Discover card will however give you 1% or 0.5% depending on your yearly spending threshold,

I was answering the OP question. OP was asking whether US Bank department store counts Walmart spending.

Yes you can use ShopDiscover to buy stuff from Walmart.com (no 5% CB for Walmart gift card however).

Be advised that Walmart.com and Walmart store are spearate company. Not everything bought on Walmart.com can be returned in store.

2% for everything cards like the Fidelity Amex or Priceline Visa give 2% (duh) back at Walmart. There's also a credit card by Fifth Third Bank which I can't remember the name, but it specifically gives double points at discount stores like Walmart. Interesting, but not compared to the 2% everything cards. There is the JCB Marukai Premium card that gives 3% everywhere after a mere $3000 annual spending, but you cannot get the card unless you live in California or Hawaii. I don't think there is a card that consistently gives more than 3% in Walmart stores.

Non-online Walmart purchases give 0.25% cash back from Discover at all times. Doesn't matter if you've reached the spending threshold to get 1% rewards or not.

If you look at the Cashback Bonus T&Cs on Discover.com, it says that "All purchases made at select warehouse clubs or discount stores, including grocery stores affiliated with these stores" get 0.25%. "Select warehouse clubs" = Sam's Club and "select discount stores" = Walmart.

If you don't have a Discover, you can also get 5% back online using UPromise to enter the site, but the best you can do in store or to stack with that online is a 2% on everything card.

I would not recommend Upromise as it was barred by FTC for its deceptive practices on consumer information.
