Gift Cards Are Becoming a Big Deal

Gift cards are becoming a big deal for retailers nationwide.

Almost everyone has gotten at least one gift card this season, and that is extending the shopping season into January.

Sales in January rose more than ten percent in 2006, up from seven and a half in 2005.

That is changing when stores get their new merchandise on display.

Most people use their cards in January and February, but plenty of people hang on to theirs even longer.
