Can You Transfer Gift Card Funds to Your Cash App Balance?
This means that you can’t directly add money from a gift card to your Cash App balance. Still, there are some workarounds to this issue that we’ll discuss down below. So, let’s dive in!!
How to Transfer Your Walmart Gift Card to Your Cash App Account
Thankfully, there are a few indirect ways to add gift card money to Cash App, though they may be a bit tricky.
Still, they’ll get the job done and enable you to add money from any Walmart gift card to your Cash App account.
So, let’s take a look at your options, shall we?
1. Sell Your Walmart Gift Card
The best way to add money from your Walmart gift card to your Cash App balance is to sell it in exchange for Cash App funds. “How?” you may ask. Well, you have a few different options.
First off, you can try selling it to your family and friends. If any of them is interested in buying it, ask them to pay you by sending the money to your Cash App account. If they don’t have a Cash App account, then you can simply take cash and then deposit it into your Cash App account.
But what if you can’t find someone around you that wants a Walmart gift card?
In that case, you should try selling your card on eBay or Facebook Market. Though you may have to sell the card for slightly less than it’s worth, it’s better than having a gift card that you can’t use. Still, take care not to give the buyer your gift card before he gives you the agreed-upon payment. That way, you can protect yourself from being scammed.
An even better way to avoid scammers is to use gift card resale sites, such as Clip Kard, GiftCardBin, CardCash, Gc Spread, and Giftcard Granny. All these sites are dedicated to reselling all kinds of gift cards, including ones from Walmart.
Some sites directly buy the card from you. Some find you buyers. Either way, you’ll be able to get money for your card that you can later add to your Cash App balance, though again, it’ll be slightly less than the card’s worth (by about 5%-10%).
2. Get Cash Back for the Walmart Gift Card
As of 2022, you can’t return or request a refund for Walmart Gift cards according to the Walmart gift card policy. However, there is a little loophole in that policy.
Basically, the National Conference of State Legislatures states that certain states require retailers, like Walmart, to pay cash for gift cards with a small remaining balance. This is to protect consumers who end up with small, unusable balances in their gift cards that can’t be depleted with regular purchases.
These states include California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.
Now, you should know that most of these states have a cashback limit amounting to approximately $5, and that’s on used gift cards. However, California and Colorado can give cash back for unused cards with a maximum of $9.99 and $5, respectively.
So, if you live in those states, simply head to the nearest Walmart and ask for the gift card balance in cash. Once you receive it, you can transfer it to your Cash App account at any time.
3. Buy Walmart Goods and Sell Them
If the previous two methods haven’t worked for you, then your last resort would be to buy Walmart goods and sell them for cash or Cash App funds.
This method typically works if your gift card is on the more expensive side, which makes selling it or getting a cashback for it difficult. Still, this method will need some time and effort on your part to work.
As a rule of thumb, you need to find a product in Walmart that’s easy to sell and will retain its value. So, steer away from personal items like food and stick to tech gadgets like cameras, hard drives, headphones, etc.
Once you find someone who wants those items, simply sell them for them and ask for your payment to be made using Cash App.
To request your payment, simply:
- Open Cash App
- Enter the Amount you want
- Tap “Request”
- Enter the buyer’s $Cashtag, email, phone number, or full name
- Tap “Request” once more
Cash App doesn’t support gift cards. So, while this means you can’t transfer a Walmart gift card to Cash App directly, you can still work around this by selling your card and adding the funds to your Cash App balance.
You can also try to get cash back for your card if it’s between $5-$10 in certain states, and if all else fails, then buy some Walmart goods, sell them, and add the profit to your Cash App balance.
