  9. Is the $30 "Walmart" plan still a Walmart plan?

    The Web site used to be pretty explicit that the plan was only available online or from Walmart. It's well hidden, but if you find it, there's no longer any such notice.

    Does this mean you can now...

    Of course, if you do it online you'll need to use a credit card, and likely want to use one at Target or other retail outlet, so they'll certainly be able to find out who you are if they really care.
