I'm not sure why anyone ever buys gift cards. All you're doing is locking the money into being used at a single retailer when you could have written someone a check or given him or her cash or sent cash through Square or Venmo, etc.Cash is king...gift cards are limiting.
The grocery chain was sold to another company and the Fry brothers used the proceeds from the sale to start Fry's Electronics. They are not related at all.They still have their grocery stores, I know of one in Yuma AZ where my sister lives.
Those are my opinions. Of course, if someone gives me a gift card, I'll be appreciative, but I at least am courteous enough not to give them to other people.Don’t really appreciate the opinions on gift cards, first this was a gift to me from someone I care about and second, the comments are useless and not helpful after the fact.
