that's a good choice, except inflation.
the best solution is to buy something that will increase in value over time.
jewelry.

Jewelry's value depreciates heavily upon leaving the store, which would probably cause a larger (short-term) depreciation of the $5,000 than monetary inflation.  Unless it takes you several years to spend the $5,000, which isn't likely since it's a relatively small sum, monetary inflation won't such a large effect that it would mitigate the advantage gained by having gift cards instead of 20 minutes to spend the total.   
   
Put differently, being forced to buy useless 						****					 in 20 minutes or less would probably have a more negative effect on the present and future values of that $5,000 than short-term monetary inflation.

oh, of course buying a gift card is better than buying useless **** .
but I was wondering how to optimize that 5000 for profit. I thought paying for part of a house, but you can't buy that at walmart

That's probably why the content got so many thumbs. Considering all the factors, i.e., the various types of inflation (price, monetary, etc.), and the amount of time you have to spend the total, and the types of purchases you can make at Wal-Mart (to use your examples, jewelry, which you can buy, and payments on the mortgage, which you can't), the gift cards is certainly the best way to go.

If nothing else, you can convert those gift cards into actual cash. $7 American dollars for $10 Wal-Mart dollars means those gift cards are worth $3,500 cash. You can trade 'em off that way just fine, I'm sure.

Anyway, the gift cards are certainly the best way to go. It's cool that you brought up these subjects, though. Thank you for the conversation.
