Still have a RadioShack gift card? You have until Friday to get your money back

RadioShack filed for bankruptcy in early 2015.

If you have a RadioShack gift card laying around, you have until Friday to get your money back.

RadioShack filed for bankruptcy in early 2015, but customers can still get the money on their RadioShack gift cards back, as long as they submit a claim at oldradioshackgiftcards.com by the Dec. 2 deadline.

Typically when a business files for bankruptcy, people have 30 days to redeem unused gift cards. But because of RadioShack's size, the settlement gave people more time, Consumer Affairs says.

And it turns out some people still have unused RadioShack gift cards. Between Sept. 24 and Nov. 21 of this year, 269 people turned in the cards, Consumerist reports.

A total of $131,491.39 has been returned to customers through the settlement program, the publication says. (That doesn't include the gift cards redeemed right after RadioShack filed for bankruptcy.)
