    Walmart Visa Prepaid Gift Cards- Any Experience with these?

    I've recently purchased a Walmart Pre-Paid Visa card with a balance of $116.00. I've used these cards in the past, but typically with set values such as the $25.00 or $50.00 cards and have had no problems. The issue arose when I wished to use this card for online purchase via Paypal.
    I first registered the account on Walmartgift.com as instructed, and after this linked it to my Paypal account. Paypal wished to verify the card and thus charged me $1.95 and put a code in the description. Unfortunately, this charge has been put in the 'pending authorization' category which had never happened with the previous cards.

    My Current Balance is at: --
    My Available Balance is at : $114.05

    So the charge took $1.95 out of my card yet it hasn't been classified as a 'recent payment' but instead as a 'pending authorization' payment and thus I can't see the description leading to my inability to verify the card through Paypal.
    I'm wondering how long it will take for this payment to become 'authorized' thus allowing me to view the description and see the code so I can use this for online payments through Paypal.

    I really didn't know where else to put this as the Walmartgift support line is fully automated with no way to talk to an operator and the Walmart main site support has no idea so my last resort is on here hoping for any experience.

    Note that this is one of the cards that go from $25-500.

    Thanks everybody.

    Not sure exactly the problem, but that pending could be either something went wrong with registration or it just needs more time.
    That pending registration will cancel when its completely, if everything went well

    Paypal is verified but need to use it as payment method and it has worked in the past. My trouble isn't linking it to the account as I already called Paypal and, thank god, I was able to get in contact with an actual person who helped me link it to the account and get me started on the card verification progress which is what led up to the 'pending authorization' fiasco as described in the top post.

    This has happened to me too. All you can do is wait. The funds will be returned to you.

    Wait it out like Shane said, and it'll probably be resolved.

    Same problem as in top post. It's been 30 hours (give or take a few mins) since Paypal made the transaction and it still hasn't shown in the transaction history, its still stuck as 'pending authorization'.

    It's not a matter of refunds, I need the payment of $1.95 to change from 'pending authorization' to being shown in the transaction history so I can see the description and ultimately the code that will let me verify the card.

    Yeah, I realize waiting is what I'm going to end up needing to do as there really isn't any support for these things, I was just wondering what past experiences had been like.

    Thanks guys.
