Gift cards unavailable at Kohl’s

1. Walmart

Kohl’s sells various third-party gift cards but Walmart ones are not included. However, you can visit the nearest Walmart store near you to purchase one of their gift cards.

Alternatively, you can order them online and have them mailed in their physical form or sent as an e-gift. Walmart gift cards come in a variety of designs for different events like graduations, birthdays, and holidays.

According to a store agent, customers can buy cards at any amount up to $5000. Accepted payment methods include credit cards, debit, PayPal, ATM, cash, and checks.

Across the United States, Walmart is one of the most visited stores and this means that a Walmart gift card is one of the most practical to give. They are reloadable and have no expiry date and in addition to that, you can cash them out when the balance goes below $10. Walmart is usually a major competitor for most retail stores, which is why it will be difficult for you to get its gift cards at any other gift card store near you. You must buy them in-store or online either from Walmart itself or Sam’s Club.

Besides being able to buy Walmart gift cards from the checkout lane at your nearest Walmart, did you know that it is also possible to purchase the same from Sam’s Club? Both stores are owned by the same company, meaning their gift cards can be used interchangeably at either store. How fantastic is that? Your card will also still be accepted at Walmart even if it has a Sam’s Club label. Try this out if you have a membership to Sam’s Club.

If you wish to buy gift cards online, they are available in both e-gift cards and physical cards. Physical ones are usually mailed to you after purchase, while e-gift cards are sent via email with the PIN, gift card number, and instructions. The easiest to use online are e-gift cards but they are also accepted in stores. At Walmart.com or Samsclub.com, the gift cards are available in amounts ranging from $10 to $1000, with free shipment.
