MO Purchases using OV @ WM
 
I was not able to buy MO at my local walmart today. The error message is as below

"A money order or money gram has been purchased in this transaction. MO & MG must be purchased with cash or debit. If the customer wants to pay for other merchandise with a different type of tender (Check, shopping card, CC ), please tender the MO separately with cash/debit... blah blah..."\

Any one else experienced this today? Is WM software upgraded to reject OV Cards now?

My new OV cards start with 4941

Oh hey looks like you have to use a debit card.

newuser0 May 29, 14 2:24 pm

No points for using debit cards..:confused:

I'm confused...OP, are you saying when trying to buy an MO with your OV while using it as a debit, you couldn't?

There's like 15 threads here that talk about cashing out OVs/VGCs, etc.

Buy 166 of this.

Really newuser0 - come on, use BB loads at WM, use AFT, use MO purely as debit, or use Bill pay at WM or 7-11, there are so many ways. Also, what does Visa Buxx have to do with OV??? WHY WOULD you load OV on Visa Buxx???

READ READ READ before you act!

Again ! LoL

Yeah I'm confused too. OV is a debit card, what's the problem?

newuser0 May 29, 14 2:42 pm

I used to buy MO at my WalMart using my OV (from CVS) till now. Today, for my surprise, When the cashier asked me to swipe my card, the register spit out a receipt saying the above mentioned message.

She tried again, no go. As soon as I swipe, the swipe pad shows a sign screen (like we get after we swipe for a purchase using CC)

My assumption is that now WM is treating OV as CC instead of debit? Any one else been successful getting OV-> MO today?

raccah May 29, 14 2:44 pm

OK that would be VERY new. Until now that occurred with MC GC and you had to hit cancel to change to debit, but it is possible that this has changed...
