Gift Giving Alternative At the Grocery Store

We only have four shopping days until Christmas. For you last-minute gift givers, NewsChannel 11's Suleika Acosta shows a new option available at the grocery store.

At all United Supermarkets in Lubbock you can now purchase gift cards from about 100 different stores, restaurants and specialty shops. Cards for places such as Starbucks, Red Lobster, Home Depot, Old Navy, Nordstrom, Bestbuy and Radioshack are available. Prices Range from $5 to $200. United even has prepaid cell phone cards and American Express credit cards.

Keep in mind when purchasing these cards that many have an expiration date and fees apply to the prepaid credit cards once they are activated. The credit cards can also be reused.
