    Tell me about it. Years ago, we used to get gift certificates for Xmas, and I had lots of AMC theater certificates, but didn't go to see movies. Over the years I ended up farming them out to my nieces as they grew up.
    Would have much rather had the cash, from people who knew I didn't go to the movies.

    Aside from the odd Visa gift card for something at work, I haven’t gotten gift cards much in recent years. I think the last one I got was for a local Middle Eastern restaurant I love for my birthday from a friend. I used it within a week.

    If you donít want the Starbucks and Panera cards, give them away to people who will use them. Maybe SO has coworkers who would like them.
