Wal-Mart Says: Bring Us Your Tax Rebates!
The income tax rebates , which will be mailed to nearly every taxpayer in the nation, will start appearing in mailboxes later this month.
People who choose to come to Wal-Mart to cash their checks will have three choices:
- Take cash for the check - no purchase is necessary
- Exchange the check for a Wal-Mart or Sam's Club shopping card which can be used at any time in the future
- Use the check at the cash register to pay for purchases
"Seriously, no purchase is necessary," said Wal-Mart spokesman Tom Williams. "We're happy to have people come in our stores, to cash them and leave - but we'd love them to spend some of the money, too."
