Bankrupt company? 3 moves to make with your gift card
If you’ve been hanging onto a Radio Shack gift card, you’d better use it now before it loses its juice.

That’s bad news for consumers, who are holding about $44 million in outstanding Radio Shack gift cards, says Shelley Hunter, a gift card expert known as the “Gift Card Girlfriend” at GiftCards.com.
