PEORIA - If you're like many other Americans, chances are good that you got a gift card for Christmas.

Some people like to start using them right away, while others wait to redeem their cards, and now some stores have special offers if you shop after Christmas.

Many grocery stores, like Hy-Vee, have incentives in place for customers who purchase gift cards at their store.

Store officials say it's a great way to get people in the door, and the activity hasn't slowed since the holiday ended.

"But also, I've seen an increase in a lot more of the restaurants, different retailers. It's really easy to get in, grab a couple quick, two, three cards, and also do a little shopping while you're in,” said Mike Patterson, manager of Hy-Vee.

Many gift cards have expiration dates. Be sure to check with your store to ensure that you will still be able to use yours by a certain date.
