I noticed that Wal Mart has a banner in the store's entrance proclaiming that they will cash your economic stimulus check for free. I bet they will be happy to do that, too, since that way you are likely to spend a good bit of it before leaving the store.
If you are asking yourself, "What's in it for ME?" the answer is a big fat nothing. There is absolutely no return for your money in the above deal.
United Supermarkets, on the other hand, is offering to give customers "15% more than the value of your check" if you cash it in the store for United gift cards.
For a large family like ours, that could mean over $400 worth of free groceries! That is a great deal! Where else can you get a 15% return on your money? Everyone uses groceries, so it is definitely a winning proposition.
You can redeem all or part of your check, and the gift card may be used for any purchase, even fuel.
Unfortunately, we had already deposited our check directly into our savings account before we saw this ad in our newspaper. We seem to be narrowly missing the boat a lot, lately. Hopefully, some of you can still take advantage of this great opportunity.
