Speaking of stimulus packages...

Business Week writes about how big box chains are trying to lure you into spending your stimulus checks in their stores. According to the National Retail Federation $42.9 billion is up for grabs and stores are figuring out different way to lure you into spending your stimulus check with them.

Sears and Kmart are both offering customers gift cards in exchange for their entire check! In return stimulus shoppers will get an extra 10 percent of credit on their card...

With TV broadcasts signals going digital in February, making analog TVs obsolete, it may be a good time to head to one of the big box stores to invest in an HD-ready TV. Sure you can hold onto your money for a rainy day, but when are you going to get recession prices plus an extra $120? Come to think of it, we wonder if you applied for a Sear or Kmart credit card if you could reap even more savings?
