I doubt it's walmart, but a scam none-the-less. Google the whole number (I had some "You have won" type junk texts a bit ago, and those numbers had already been reported.) I seem to recall they had 215...

Most phone numbers that show up on scam phone calls are for all intents and purposes fake. Often the numbers belong to VoIP gateways that are shared by dozens if not hundreds of different service providers. Not only do the numbers not accept incoming calls, but you can't even tell which service provider the scammer used to place the call. This type of number often shows up when the caller simply uses a pre-paid calling card.

I doubt it's actually Walmart.
Most people shop at Walmart so 50-75% of the people they call probably will have made a "recent" purchase at walmart, which helps with their scam

Definately not walmart, it was someone trying to steal your credit card number!!

usually stores, banks, credit cards, cell phone companies never call you requesting personal information usually you have to call them so be careful who you give your information like credit card numbers over the phone they will have a nice Holidays with it

I don't think it was actually from Walmart... but on another note I never thought you win gift cards from taking surveys but I just won a $25 Walmart GC from taking a McCormick survey

If you've read the comments- you'd see it was a scam making believe they were from Walmart.

i would contact Walmart and give them the number to make an official complaint since they are using Walmart's name.

@omegafemale is right. Cam't hurt to make Walmart aware. Chances are the con people are constantly changing numbers, but it is good to make Walmart aware of what happened
