Consumers began receiving their tax rebate checks last week, and at least one retailer is trying to live up to its motto of "saving people money so they can live better."
That was the goal that Sam Walton envisioned when he opened his first Wal-Mart 40 years ago. Last week, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said it will cash the economic stimulus checks for free, with no purchase at the store required. Moreover, the discounter is offering rollbacks on prices of items from shampoo to lunch meat and cereal. Over the coming weeks, the Bentonville, Ark.-based discounter said it will add more rollback items to help shoppers stretch their dollars.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
