Let Freedom Ring and Chi-Ching!

Those looking for a safe and convenient way to control their spending might not think of Walmart as a solution, but they offer a Walmart MoneyCard that acts like a credit card, that you load money onto, so you can make purchases and stay within your limits.  With the Fourth of July holiday just around the corner, many people will be heading to Walmart to shop for family gatherings, pot-lucks, last minutes guests, camping trips and more.   They know they can count on Walmart to stock their favorite items and have the name-brands they trust.   How many know they can also apply for a card that can be used wherever Visa debit cards are accepted.  And you can use it to shop, travel and help your teens learn to be responsible spenders.

You must be 18 years of age to apply, but the card can be used by teens ages 16 and 17, with parents’ approval.  Then,if they are off at camp or going to school in another state, visiting a relative or right in town, they can use their card to make purchases.  Just make sure they see the bill.  This will help them learn quickly how to manage money, when and why fees are applied and what to do if their card is ever lost or stolen.  Many parents use these cards to allocate the monthly allowances, or to reward their child for good behavior.  And when you teach them to use money saving Groupons to make their Walmart purchases, chances are they can save even more.

Groupon offers incredible “warehouse clearing” deals right now that are just in time to make your Independence Day holiday the best.  You can get sweet deals on items like outdoor and sporting goods, 40% off summer Rollbacks, and save as much as 50% off electronics, so you can hook up that super-sized screen just in time for the big game.  And since the Walmart MoneyCard is good anywhere that takes Visa, you can arrange to travel, book your hotel and flight with the card, and see the game in person with your crew.  The more you shop Walmart the more of their convenient services you become aware of and use.  You can even pick up your friends in a snazzy rental, because the debit card is good at car rental companies around the country.

So make this Independence Day one that celebrates the freedom of our great country, and the financial freedom to spend at more places than ever before with a convenient Walmart MoneyCard.
