$1.7 Billion in Gift Cards Will Go Unspent This Year

$1.7 Billion in Gift Cards Will Go Unspent This Year | It's Show Prep for Radio | Scoop.it
Consumers are getting better at squeezing every last penny in value out of the gift cards they receive as holiday presents, new research shows.
Stu Gray's insight:

CEB forecasts that roughly 85% of the U.S. population will give gift cards this year, with sales of gift cards passing the $110 billion mark.

Helping propel gift card sales past the $110 billion mark is an increase in purchases of restaurant gift cards ($19 billion), merchant cards ($36 billion), and open-loop gift cards that can be spent anywhere, like those offered by American Express, Visa, Mastercard and Discover ($40 billiion).

So, what do you Say to Your Kids about CT? Anything?

Do you tell your kids about the horrors of mass shootings?
Stu Gray's insight:

A Friend posted this quote from Corrie Ten Boom:

 

 “And so seated next to my father in the train compartment, I suddenly asked, "Father, what is sex sin?"
He turned to look at me, as he always did when answering a question, but to my surprise he said nothing. At last he stood up, lifted his traveling case off the floor and set it on the floor.
Will you carry it off the train, Corrie?" he said.
I stood up and tugged at it. It was crammed with the watches and spare parts he had purchased that morning.
It's too heavy," I said.
Yes," he said, "and it would be a pretty poor father who would ask his little girl to carry such a load. It's the same way, Corrie, with knowledge. Some knowledge is too heavy for children. When you are older and stronger, you can bear it. For now you must trust me to carry it for you.” 
― Corrie Ten Boom, The Hiding Place

 

I think there is some great wisdom there for those of us who weren't actually there...
