In MoneyWatch, retailers are competing for your stimulus check dollars. And you could benefit from the stiff competition.
Some big name retailers like Sears, K-mart and Kroger are announcing promotions aimed at getting you to spend your money with them.
Customers can cash in their stimulus checks for store gift cards, and you'll get an additional 10 percent added on to the card. So, if you get a $600 check, you could get a gift card for $660.
Be on the lookout for deals to make your stimulus check dollars go farther, but make sure the deal is from a reputable retailer that you know.
