We have a warning before you head out the door to use that Wal-Mart gift card.
Some of them simply aren't working.
Store workers in North Augusta say some customers have zero problems with theirs, while others aren't able to use them at all.
We've also heard the same complaints from people visitng the Augusta area stores.
A spokesperson says this isn't just a problem in our area. Wal-Mart stores all over the country are experiencing this same problem.
We're told the reason for the delay in gift card verifications is because of a third party processing error.
An overload of people using their gift cards could also be part of the problem.
Wal-Mart says the problem has been fixed.
