christmas treeNow with all of your Christmas bounty unwrapped, don’t forget there are some things you need to do quickly!

After all the excitement of unwrapping gifts is over, there is still some work you need to do with all of your new gadgets, computers, gift cards and so on.

Gift Cards

As we recently discussed in Are Gift Cards A Safe Gift This Holiday Season, these are uncertain economic times, and those cards may not be worth the plastic they are made out of if you don’t act quickly.  First you need to see if the company the card is for has published any news about bankruptcy or going out of business.  Even if they haven’t, do not throw them in the back of a drawer and forget about them, use them as quickly as possible just to be safe.


With all of the sales going on this holiday season, some items required you to mail-in for your rebates.  Make sure to sit down and do this as soon as possible so you don’t lost out on them.  Believe us, there is nothing the companies would like you to do more than to put it off and forget to mail it in.


Most stores have limited return windows, and while doing it on the 26th may not sound appealing, you need to do it as quickly as possible for the same reason you have to worry about the gift cards.  And if they only want to issue you store credit, use it immediately, do not wait!

Warranty Cards

Did your new electronics come with a mail-in warranty card?  Just like with the rebates, the companies are hoping you forget to send that in.  Make sure to sit down and fill it out immediately, and get it mailed in.  Even if it is an online registration, do it as soon as you can to make sure you don’t lose out.

    I just laugh at people who PAY for a msebermhip to shop. Imagine if walmart said okay if yu want to shop here yu now have to buy a 75 buck msebermhip.Target says its 75 hert too. What saving??? There isnt one. You just pay yourself with the msebermhip. hahaha hey look, i save 10 cents on milk here Its a scam to extract money to decrease overhead and ultimatly increase profits. You get a card to make you feel good, thast you belong top an exclusive club hahahahaPeople, you get better savings at stores when sales are on.HAHAHA Pay to have priviledge to walk into a store hahaha TOO RICH.
