I just used $400 in GCs I had for over a year. Hardly anything worth buying from them. Don't buy Toys R Us gift cards. You're welcome, don't say someone didn't warn you.
Now I just need to find some deals at Sears and Staples before they go Bankrupt. I lost count of how much I have in their gift cards. Probably like $1,000. Sigh. I figured I'd use them by now, but Staples and Sears have been useless as of late.
Staples is going bankrupt too?

It's just a countdown until it does. Amazon will end up ruining most brick and mortar stores.

It's actually quite fitting. These companies did the same thing to mom and pop shops across the country. No tears shed by me over these bankruptcies.

Both of these stores price match, and have a lot more items online than in store. May make it easier to use up those gift cards.

Bain capital aka "we killed KB toys for a lower return than just investing in an index fund would have brought us" is involved, this doesn't really come as a surprise.

The company was bought by the private equity firms Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and Bain Capital, as well as the real estate firm Vornado Realty Trust, for about $6 billion in 2005.
