Police, FBI arrest Kentucky woman for stealing $200,000 in gift cards

An Evansville, Kentucky woman is in jail, after police said they found over $200,000 in stolen gift cards inside her home. According to police, the woman presented false information to a Kroger grocery store and attempted to purchase gift cards by obtaining a line of credit using her employer’s name.

I am surprised that she was able to purchase such a large amount of gift cards without anyone becoming suspicious, especially since the purchases happened over a 2-3 month period. Click here for the full story.

Gift card idea: Offer free gas cards to your customers

With gas prices at record highs, consumers are stretched and are finding various ways to save on gas. One way small businesses can show appreciation to their customers is to offer a free gas gift card for qualified purchases.

Apart from the obvious benefit of increased sales, consumers will instantly connect with the offer. I know personally that even a free $30 gas card will make a difference to my gas bill.

One key point to keep in mind is to make the qualifying criteria easy to understand. For example, you can set your qualified purchases as every $200 in purchases gets a free $25 gift card, at the register. No forms to fill out, or no rebate forms to mail in. You are more likely to attract more customers if there is instant gratification with the offer.



Bankruptcy and gift cards: A Success Story

When it comes to bankruptcy and gift cards, customers of small businesses suffer the most when a local business goes bankrupt. Often times, customers find out about the bankruptcy months later, when it is too late to take action. Even well informed customers find it hard to get their money back once a local business goes bankrupt.

This story from Missouri shows how customers can petition their state’s attorney general’s office when they find themselves in a similar situation. According to the report, a local spa (Spa 151) went out of business after operating for a little more than two years. More than 300 consumers filed complaints with the state’s attorney general’s office alleging that they held gift cards or gift certificates that could not be redeemed.
