If you’re like me and have friends that are gamers, then chances are you’ve heard of Steam cards. They are a nice gift to give, and it allows me to give my friends the flexibility to get the content they want. Getting them at Walmart is fairly easy too, so I typically shop there for them.
That’s right; you can easily find Steam cards at your local Walmart store or online. Prices range from $20 – $100, and they are only physical gift cards, not digital.
Availability Of Steam Cards at Walmart
Steam cards are widely available at Walmart at varying price points.
These range from as much as $20, $50, or even $100. Not only will you be able to gift your friends with much-appreciated gaming funds, but you can also feel secure knowing that these cards are genuine and easily accessible.
This means you can also purchase the cards online too, not just in-store.
I like that Walmart provides options for both. You can purchase physical Steam cards at Walmart stores or go digital by visiting their website and searching for “Steam Cards”. You can also search under the “Video Games” and “Gaming Gift Cards” tab.
The only knock on purchasing Steam cards online from Walmart is that $50 and $100 are the only offerings available. It’s also a physical card, so there isn’t a digital download option. You’ll need to purchase it and then go to your nearest Walmart store that can pick it up.
If you need more flexibility in price points and have to go to the store anyway to pick up the card, you may be better off just shopping in-store for it.
Accepted Payment Methods
To make your shopping experience even more seamless, Walmart accepts various payment methods for purchasing Steam cards. Major credit cards like Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover are all welcome, providing multiple options to secure your desired Steam card.
If you prefer to use cash, you can do that too, but only when shopping in the store.
How to Purchase and Redeem
Purchasing a Steam gift card at Walmart is incredibly easy!
After obtaining your Steam gift card, it’s time to redeem it:
- Log into your Steam account.
- Click on your username in the top-right corner.
- Select “Account Details.”
- Click on “Add funds to your Steam Wallet.”
- Select “Redeem a Steam Wallet Code.”
- Enter the code from your gift card.
- Click “Continue” to complete the process.
Activation and Activation Code
Before you can redeem your gift card, ensure that it’s activated. Generally, Walmart activates the card during checkout. However, for orders of $250 or more, or 25 gift cards and higher, Walmart will send an email with activation details. Keep track of the provided PIN, as it’s essential for redeeming your gift card.
Alternatives to Walmart
I like how convenient Steam gift cards can be at Walmart. However, its always good to have other options available when shopping for them. Steam cards can be picked up pretty much anywhere, including places like Amazon, Target, and more.
If you want Steam cards, why consider shopping on Amazon? They offer a wide range of gift cards, making it convenient for you to find the perfect gift for your gaming friends or even yourself! One reason I recommend them over Walmart is that you can get digital Steam cards, not just physical
The prices available ranges go as high as $200.
Perhaps Target is more your style? You can shop for Steam cards in-store or online at Target.
They offer $20, $50, and $100 cards, although anytime I’ve looked, they are usually “Sold Out”. The card is non-reloadable and never expires.
Purchasing From Steam Directly
In some cases, it just makes sense to purchase directly from Steam. They sell both digital and physical cards on their website. When you search through, they actually feature a store locator, which can come in handy.
On the locator, you’re able to see various locations that offer Steam Wallet Codes. The list includes some places you may have never considered including:
- 7 Eleven
- Dollar General
There are also the ones you would expect, like GameStop, BestBuy, and of course, the focus of this article; Walmart.
