Walmart balance frustrations

Made a payment for $35 on April 3rd.  IT STILL HAS NOT POSTED TO MY ACCOUNT BALANCE OR AVAILABLE CREDIT. REALLY?  Wow.  

 

I'm never using this card again.

Re: Walmart balance frustrations

it's not about the available credit. it's that the balance doesnt go down automatically or even after 6 days?  i just want it to report 0

I don't know about that.

Re: Walmart balance frustrations

How did you make your payment? In store, online, banks bill pay? Check the payments tab, you should see your payment pending. When your payment 'clears' the payment will be seen on your account summary section - your posting date should be the same day they received your payment.
For example, I scheduled a payment for Apr 6 through their website, it did not show up on my account summary but I could see it under the payments section as pending. Last night, I checked it again and the payment is now on the account summary section dated Apr 6.

When I say 'clears' they take up 2-3 days for processing- not necessarily your check clearing your bank.

Hope I don't confuse you.

would paying cash in store be quicker?

Re: Walmart balance frustrations

No, it still will take 2-3 days to process but your payment will post the day you made it. I had this issue with JCP on my first payment- I noticed the receipt indicated payments will take 2-3 days to post. I did call and confirmed that paying in the store or online didn't change the 2-3 processing period but that the any net will post correctly.

Re: Walmart balance frustrations

Another thing to be careful of is when paying from walmart/ge site, ity like to default your payment date to your due date and if you do not catch that, it will hold til your due date before making the payment/withdraw
