  1. will there be a $5.00 monthly charge even if I don’t have money added to the card for a month or two? Will the $5.00 charge accumulate every month?

      The one main downer with the Walmart MoneyCard is the $5 monthly fee. Over the course of the year, that means cardholders have to pay $60 just to be customers, even if they conduct no transactions at all.
      If you have any other question, please see the relevant links above.
      Thanks and good luck!

  4. do I have to wait for my personalized card to withdraw money from an ATM or can I use the temp card I was given first.

    • Thanks for your feedback. This is the INeedGuides Service Team Offering help (Not Official).
      We’ve found the answers as follows:
      Unless otherwise indicated, you may not use your Temporary Card:
      (i)for any purchase at a merchant that uses a manual imprint machine;
      (ii) at ATMs or for cash access;
      (iii) for card-not-present transactions (such as online transactions); or (iv) at merchants outside the 50 states of the United States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico (collectively, the “U.S.”) (including websites based outside the U.S.).
      Following additional identity verification, you may be allowed to use your Temporary Card with some or all of the features of a Personalized Card (such as ATM and cash access), and the official center will notify you if they do.
      Thanks & good luck!
