You need to call the customer service number and activate it that way, because you have to enter your name, address SSN etc.

I used to work for Walmart and the card is supposed to be active with your money loaded to it within 15 minutes of purchase ..if the problem persists either call the 800 # or take it to customer service..

It has to be activated, which requires your info i can't remember the reason they need your SSN but the card you have is obviously temporary, they need your info to send the permanent one out. Your money is on there but it has to be activated to be used.

I used to work for walmart too and they always had to be activated with your info before the card could be used, did it change?
