Don’t fall for @Walmart’s scam, advertising a black card. They take your money without telling you that you can’t get cash for 2 weeks until your permanent card arrives.
But the real question is why are they not telling you that when they sign you up. Yeah yeah, we I know about the fine print. But how many of my clients do you think read and/or understand the fine print. Then the customer service agent who barely speaks English has to put you on hold 10 times to explain that to you. Wait, there’s more.
When the manager who also speaks poor English gets on the line…
1. He asks what the you need the cash for.
2. Then he proceeds to educate you that all temporary debit cards issued in the US right now have a stipulation that doesn’t allow cash withdrawals.
Huh??? That’s when I lost it and took the phone. Now he wants to escalate after we explained the nice little advertisement we’d be posting to help them out.
A debit card means you can can withdraw, but that’s not what this is. This is you investing in Walmart and helping them build interest, plain and simple.
Don’t fall for companies who pretend to be helping the masses. They are not! You may as well deal with a bank, which is FDIC insured and can’t pull a fast one. Highly disappointed in Wally World. I will not shop there again in spite of the fact that it is the closest store to my house.
