  2. Transfer irregularities. Walmart has the right to reject transfers via direct deposits. This usually happens if the identifying information does not match the information that Walmart has of you. If such transactions occur repeatedly, Walmart may be forced to block your card.
  3. If you violate the limits on the use of your card. Here are some of the restrictions:
  • When it comes to temporary cards, you are restricted from using them: at ATMs, for card-not-present transactions, at merchants outside the United Stets and for any purchase at a merchant that uses a manual imprint machine.
  • You should not have transactions that exceed $3000 per calendar day.
