I don't think Walmart allows them sold anywhere else. Occasionally, they pop up at cardswap.ca

I'm curious as to why you don't want to buy them at Walmart? They allow you to buy with credit card, and most Supercenters are classified as grocery stores in case you get bonus points.

probably OP wants to buy it by certainly giftcard or prepaid card and WM doesn't accept it

I avoid walmart like the black plauge. I would give my mother a giftcard to walmart ($200 or so) as gift and if I could buy them at shoppers I would.

If Walmart is close by, why not make a small purchase there with your Visa and then check online to see if you got the bonus points? In 2009, very few Walmarts were Supercenters - it was once they added grocery that they became considered "grocery stores". My local Walmart converted last year, and shortly afterwards, my MC considered it a grocery store.

I don\t think you're going to have any luck buying Walmart cards outside of Walmart.

So basically you want to shop at Walmart, but you're worried you won't get the bonus points, so you want to do it by buying a Walmart gift card at a store that does offer bonus points?

My BMO MasterCard classifies the WalMart that we frequent as "Groceries". (Trafalgar & Dundas, Oakville)

super centre walmarts are usually classified as grocery, while regular wal marts are not
