Jim Forbes, Giants, Greg Joseph discussed on Bloomberg Businessweek


Point every fire truck in Buffalo had gotten stuck, as well as at least 9 ambulances. I'm Jim Forbes. Now this Bloomberg sports update, it was kind of a mixed bag for the Giants on Christmas Eve.

And it turns out companies are actually profiting from your generosity. There's actually a financial term for unspent gift cards or loyalty program money. It's called breakage. That's Bloomberg's Tim stenbeck, and he said some big well-known chains are actually making some big money from all the cash you, me, and just about everyone else in the country have sitting deposited in those unused gift cards. Starbucks claimed $181 million in revenue from breakage in fiscal 2021. That's up from about $145 million. The previous year. The
