Walmart is tricky, if it's a supercentre it might be coded as grocery for Mastercard only. Regular Walmart is not considered grocery by Visa/MC/Amex.
If you have a Collabria credit card, you can log in to mycardinfo and it will tell you the merchant type (not the code but you can easily look that up) for each transaction. So you can make a test purchase first.
