NOTE: While you can shop for WIC and non-WIC items simultaneously, you can only pay for the WIC-supported items using your benefits card. Therefore, you must use another payment method for non-supported items.

However, you can ask a Walmart customer service representative to help remove any non-WIC items you mistakenly included in your cart during self-checkout.
