I received two gift cards from Walmart, so today I spent them.
Bought a new all in one Printer, Scanner, and Copier with a little left on the two cards.

I didn't stay long.

2. I wish the gift cards were from some other store.
I now have a lot of old pictures to scan, my weekend will by busy.

Old neighborhood pictures, working on a history DVD.

3. Sounds like you will make good use of your gift cards! Lots of people have no clue how
evil Walmart is and I can't blame them for that. I never knew until recently.

6. The person who gave them to me means well.
I have talked with her about Walmart and suggested getting gift cards that can be spent anywhere like Visa.

I didn't spend 10 minutes in the store and that was to long.

My new scanner was needed for our neighborhood project, so many pictures to scan.

4. That is an acceptable reason to go to Walmart.
If you didn't use those cards, they become pure profit for Walmart. By using them, you're taking that money back! :)

5. Give them to a food bank
Retailers make money off gift cards because many never use them and they eventually expire

7. That's a great idea. They can buy some bulk food
at walmart, and even though the evil empire keeps a small profit some people who need it will get fed. :applause:

10. O yes, I was going to use the cards.
I have almost $25 left, I need to do something with that.

Give it to my neighbor so she can use it for food shopping.

I don't want to go back to Walmart.
