retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Business Courier of Cincinnati reports that Kroger is offering consumers a way to spend the economic stimulus checks they are slated to get from the government – if they exchange them for a Kroger gift card, they can actually get a bonus.

Customers with a Kroger loyalty card will be able to get a $330 gift card for a $300 check, two $330 gift cards for $600, and four $330 gift cards for $1,200.

The program will run from May 2 to the end of July.
