Gift Card Alert: Linens and Things going out of business?

going-out-of-business-small.jpgAccording to this story, Linens ‘n Things may be going under soon. There is speculation that the company may file for bankruptcy if it does not find a buyer soon. If you currently have a Linens ‘n Things gift card, now is the time to use it or lose it. Actually, if you have a gift card you’ve been holding on to for a while, you might want to use it soon.

Considering that we are already in a recession (i don’t know why the government won’t just come out and admit what majority of consumers already know and feel) and don’t know how long it will last, many struggling retailers may have no option but to file for bankruptcy protection.

When a company files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, federal law allows the company to stop honoring gift cards. However, the company may petition the bankruptcy court to continue the redemption of gift cards. My advise is that when buying a gift card, keep your eyes and ears open regarding the company you are buying from. Avoid buying gift cards from companies that are struggling as you may loose your gift card should the company go under.

To show you how serious things can get, AOL recently asked its users to predict which national retailer may be next to go under. While this is just user opinion, it is not hard to spot trouble with a retailer. When you visit the store and you are always the only one shopping, you know something is wrong. Below are the companies that made the list from the AOL survey:

Gift cards coming to an ATM near you

photo-home.jpgStopping at the ATM to get cash? Why not pick up a gift card to your favorite store while you are at it? If you think gift cards have become ubiquitous, it about to get even better (or worse depending on who you ask).

According to this story, Better ATM Services, a Mesa, Arizona-based company, has developed technology that would enable ATMs to dispense prepaid gift cards like currency. So, instead of getting cash, you can choose to buy a gift card and the ATM will dispense the gift card via the ATM’s cash tray.

The new technology was showcased last week at the KioskCom Las Vegas Expo and is generating a buzz. The largest of ATMs would be able to hold about 1,000 credit-card sized gift cards. According Better ATM Services, banks, shopping malls, grocery stores and restaurants can now offer prepaid gift cards through ATMs without a need to reconfigure the ATM’s hardware. This means ATM owners can offer this at zero additional cost.

If you needed any more proof that gift cards are here to stay, there you have it. It won’t be long before an ATM will ask you “Would you like Cash or a Gift Card?” Click here to see a video from the company about this new ATM capability.

Readers, what are your thoughts about this new technology? Post your comments in the comments box below.

More retailers offering free 10% gift cards for your Stimulus Check

hot1.pngSince announcing this free gift card deal from Kroger regarding the stimulus checks from the IRS, more supermarkets and retailers have jumped on the bag wagon with their own plans offering an additional free 10% gift card if you turn your entire stimulus check into a gift card.

As you are probably aware, Uncle Sam will begin mailing checks of $600 and $1,200 respectively for individuals and couples with another $300 per child beginning next month. This means you get an extra $60 if you turn your $600 check into that retailer or supermarket’s gift card or $120 if you turn your $1200 into a gift card. Below is the current list of companies that have this promotion. I expect this list to grow as the IRS begins to mail the checks. An updated list will be posted here so check back for more. You may find a deal that interest you.

Free $120 gift card from Kroger for Tax Rebate Check

kroger.jpgAccording to this story, supermarket chain Kroger is offering a free gift card up to 10% of the value of your tax rebate check if you turn the full value of your rebate check into a Kroger gift card. As you are probably aware, Uncle Sam will begin mailing checks of $600 and $1,200 respectively for individuals and couples with another $300 per child beginning next month.

If you are a Kroger shopper, this may not be a bad deal since what this does is give you an extra $60 if you turn your $600 into a Kroger gift card or $120 if you turn your $1200 into a Kroger gift card. That could be your entire grocery shopping for six months to a year covered, assuming you do not already have plans for your check. 🙂
