Fix: Walmart discount card is not working online
The Walmart employee discount card can offer you huge price savings on your purchases. So naturally, it can be very frustrating when the card stops working.
Several reasons you might be having trouble using your employee discount online.
Below is a look at them and how to fix them:
1. You are no longer eligible to use the card
The first thing you need to do is make sure that you are eligible to use the card. That is, you (or your spouse) are still an employee of Walmart.
If you got your discount card through your spouse, being divorced will make you ineligible to use the card.
2. Walmart servers are down when trying to use the discount card
Sometimes, the discount card not working could mean an issue with the Walmart servers affecting payment.
In this case, wait a few minutes and then make your purchase again.
3. Your discount card is turned on in the Walmart app
If you are having trouble using the Walmart employee discount through the app, it could be that the feature is disabled.
This can sometimes happen after you update your Walmart app. To fix the issue, go to the Walmart Pay section on your app and ensure the discount card is on.
4. A glitch in the Walmart app or your Walmart account
If you still have trouble using your Walmart associate discount, you could be dealing with a glitch affecting the app or your account.
In the case of the app, you can try restarting your phone. If this does not work, un-install and re-install the app.
If you are having trouble using the Walmart associate discount, you should go to Walmart.com and log into your account.
First, go to the wallet section and check that you have entered your card and WIN numbers correctly. Then, if the issue persists, contact Walmart customer support for additional troubleshooting and guidance.
After working for Walmart for 90 days, you are eligible for the Walmart associate discount card. You can receive a 10% discount on fresh produce and other regular-priced merchandise with the card.
The above is a detailed guide on how you can add your discount card to your Walmart app for seamless purchases when shopping through the app.
