Time is running out to use Sports Authority gift cards.

Tuesday is the last day the chain will accept gift cards at its remaining stores and website. Unless the company’s estate sets up another option, the only option will be to file a claim in the company’s bankruptcy.

Gift card holders are behind everyone else to whom a company owes money, which makes it even more difficult to get money back.
