Wal-Mart Says: Bring Us Your Tax Rebates!

Not wanting to miss an opportunity to lure would-be shoppers to its aisles or to endear itself to consumers everywhere, Wal-Mart has announced a plan whereby taxpayers can cash their tax rebate checks at no charge, with no strings attached.

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:

  1. Take cash for the check - no purchase is necessary
  2. Exchange the check for a Wal-Mart or Sam's Club shopping card which can be used at any time in the future
  3. 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."
