business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Roundy's – which announced this week that it will cash the economic stimulus checks currently being handed out by the US government and hand out gift cards in $300 increments, and also will add $30 to the card as a bonus for the shopper – has added a new wrinkle to the offer.

According to the story, "The company says it will expand the offer to customers who show proof that they had a stimulus payment direct-deposited to their bank accounts. Proof can be an IRS notice showing the amount of the payment, or a bank statement showing the deposit. The direct deposit program will run from May 2 through June 14."
