3 ways to de-stress your holiday budget

3 ways to de-stress your holiday budget

Set yourself up for success and make the season bright

It’s that most wonderful time of year again when the holiday lists get longer and longer. Between preparing for your favorite meals with loved ones and shopping for the season’s hottest gifts, there’s lots to do and lots to budget for. Saving money and time are hard to keep at the top of your list, but we’re here to help.

Here are three ways the Walmart MoneyCard can help maximize your holiday savings and minimize spending:

  1. Create a holiday savings account in minutes. There’s no need to go to the bank. You can access your money right in the Walmart MoneyCard app and spend it with ease anywhere Visa® or MasterCard® are accepted. And it doesn’t matter whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year, a Walmart MoneyCard account always earns you 2% APY on savings.1
  2. Get paid early. The holiday whirlwind might make it easier to lose track of the days, but now you’ll never lose sight of payday. With early direct deposit, your pay is deposited directly to your Walmart MoneyCard, and you’ll enjoy early access to your money— up to two days early for payroll, and up to four days early for government benefits.2
  3. Earn cash back at Walmart and Walmart.com. Why not earn cash back while you’re already shopping for everything you need? It pays to use your Walmart MoneyCard at Walmart, literally — you earn 3% cash back when you use it at Walmart.com, 2% at Walmart fuel stations, and 1% cash back when you use it in-store at Walmart.3

Take the stress out of your holiday season by opening a new Walmart MoneyCard account today and download the free Walmart MoneyCard mobile app to help manage your money on the go. Then get back to what really matters — enjoying the season with those who mean the most to you.

Must be 18 or older to purchase a Walmart MoneyCard. Activation requires online access and identity verification (including SSN) to open an account. Mobile or email verification and mobile app are required to access all features.
