i'd just like to point out that i only filled out one form, before the obvious question is asked.


For some weird reason it sometimes happens you get two instead of one confirmation e-mails. Nevertheless, I checked our database and you indeed filled the form only once. :twilightsmile:

(If this will happen to someone else and they'd like to make sure they filled the signup form only once, feel free to PM me your e-mail and I'll check it out!)

  • Credit Unions are typically better than banks, and have far more protections (legal and otherwise) over your money than a WalMart money card.
  • Credit cards have far more protections (legal and otherwise) over your money than a WalMart money card.
  • Credit cards are easy to apply for and as long as you pay your balance before it's due, you don't pay interest.
  • If someone steals your card number, your card provider will refund you everything instead of losing everything loaded on a WalMart money card

Please please please check out the personal finance subreddit and read through their FAQ.

No one solution is the best for everyone, but understanding your personal finances and what solutions are out there that are the best for your situation is something everyone should invest time figuring out.

Only keep as much as you need on your card. There is no reason to keep all your funds in a single place. Multiple cards, multiple companies, spread out evenly, lessen the risks. Only put what you need on your spending card. Someone steals that card, big whoop, they get a few bucks, a text message sent to me stating the time and location of the purchase, a cop sent to check footage, and some jail time. All I'm out is a few days lunch money.

If you happen to over spend on a credit union/bank card, expect to be hit with absurd fees for every single transaction. I have been hit with a $25 fee four times in a single day just using my credit union card in a soda machine because it would still go through despite the lack of funds. What happens when I try that with my Walmart card? Nothing, because the funds aren't there. If credit unions and banks would stop being so sleazy with their money grabbing then maybe I would start using them again. But as it stands, every credit union and bank will go out of their way to not only hide disgraceful money grab practices from their customers, but will constantly come up with new tricks.

Hi, so I tried signing up for the pink eyes printing but since I signed up for it on mobile I'm not sure if it took when I filled out the form a few weeks ago. Is there any way to verify if I'm on the list or not before it's finalized :pipshrug: ?

Other that being really slow, that shouldn't be an issue since as far as USPS is concerned it's treated like any other US address.

I said in my form that I wanted to pay with PayPal, but if that really isn't an option, I can cay with credit card. Should I change my order?

A credit card will be the best way to pay. I went ahead and changed for you :twilightsmile:
