This is a story we're going to see over and over again until bankruptcy laws or gift card laws are adjusted.

I'm on a Holly Johnson roll. First she writes about gift cards, then hits my other passion--being a work-at-home mom. If she writes about popcorn next, we'll be BFF's for life.

While it's true, the gift card industry is mysterious - it's also simple. Use your gift cards when you receive them. Trade them in if you don't want them. Give them freely along with activation receipts. Just a few things to keep in mind.
Perhaps you didn’t realize that each $25 loaded onto a gift card is recorded as a liability on company ledgers. Money is rung up, but it’s not pure income until merchandise is sold. As such, American businesses racked up more than $44 billion in liabilities in unused cards between 2008 and early 2014, according to CardHub. But consumers are doing better at getting their money’s worth.

That's what I've been saying. RadioShack didn't work hard enough to tell consumers to use their gift cards and I'm the only one telling them to file a claim. Let's shake up this gift card bankruptcy conundrum.
Don’t mess with Texas---especially not with its shoppers. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Thursday sued RadioShack in bankruptcy court over approximately $43 million in unused gift cards.

We initially reported that people with RadioShack gift cards would have to use them up by March 5 or lose the entire balance. Great news if you happen to have found one buried in the far corner of ...

Thoughtful photo gifts for new mom. If you're not sure which on to get, get a personalized photo gift card instead. Then mom can decide which way to preserve the memories of this special time.
