EXCHANGE YOUR GIFT CARDS FOR RECORD EXCHANGE STORE CREDIT!

It’s a problem we have all faced this time of year: Well-meaning Aunt Sally from Sheboygan sends you, ugh, a Wal-Mart gift card because she knows you’re “into music” and that Wal-Mart (technically speaking) sells music.

But we all know a Wal-Mart gift card is the Christmas present equivalent of taking your sister to prom — it’ll be an okay time, but it’s not what you’re after and has the huge potential to get awkward and weird fast.
