What are *you* doing with your $600?

61 posts in this topic

Bush thinks the American public will be going on a spending spree with the extra $600. I'm betting not.

For me, it's going into the "Say goodbye to the U.S." fund......

a bit ironic isn't it?

So, where is yours going?

Bush is an IDIOT......(surprise, right?)

People are going to use the money to pay down credit card bills, or other bills.....I suspect. (EDIT: It's not gonna stimulate the economy one iota....although he'll try to claim it is....<his final "win" as he goes out of office.>)

Mine?

I don't know......my ex fuc*ed me so bad with my credit, it's not worth even trying to pay down his bills with my measly $600......I'll most likely put it in the bank.

Probably going into the checking account... that way I can save some of my money from working in the summer.

Some will help pay for my son's braces and most of the rest gets set aside for my trip to Reno for Hot August Nights.

Paying Off some bills. I agree, the Idiot in the white house and his fellow rapers of our country have loaded us with trillions of Debt for his personal war and grossly large build up in his own personal wealth. No other president has created such a large divide between the elite rich and the working middle class.

THis rebate will do nothing to the economy of our country and we still have these morons saying this is a slow down and not a recession. Yea right only about 270 days left or so till the end of a LARGE ERROR!

I purchased a 22" LCD in advance. :AH-HA_wink: Perhaps a set of nice Sennheiser headphones and an 8GB flash drive too.

These were things I wanted and buying them didn't really have anything to do with this insignificant amount of money I am apparently getting from the government. lol

I think for the time being the $1,800 we'll be getting (married + 2 kids) will be going into the savings account. It won't last long - we have a small family trip planned for the first week of November and that money will most likely pay for our airfare tickets.

Even my republican friends think that he is a complete utter MORON. How we elected this dixie cup for TWO terms is beyond me.

That being said, I'm going to be paying off a few of my sons medical bills.

God I can't wait until Bush is out of office.

Aw man. Your economy blows, but you get free money.

Our economy is on fire and yet the tax agency calls me to remind me to include bank interest on my return this time, or else. :(:P

My $600? I haven't decided... it's like a circle with me:

1) Do I put it in the bank to save up for my next car? I already have about $2000 saved just for the car.

2) Do I pay credit cards with it?

3) Do I use it to pay for classes this summer... since I'm going to wipe out my car fund like I do all the time when tuition time rolls around? It's so irritating.

I never know if I should stop taking classes and keep saving for the car, or keep hitting those +15 steps added onto my masters. In the long run, the latter pays off. Immediately, it sure as hell does not.

Pauli, pay off whatever charges the highest interest rate. Interest charges are a tick sucking the life blood out of your financial health.

Do I even get money? :P

If so, it's going towards my "Beast Replacement Fund". Don't forget... I accept donations! :D

Between the washer and dryer, and now the door to replace the vandalized one, I have spent about $3700 at Lowe's in the last couple of months. It's going toward my credit card account.

Savings account, at least for a while. That's where ANYTHING I get starts out, aside from normal pay.

Then, we'll see. Just like normal tax refunds for me.

In the bank...got student loans and car insurance to pay for. Although some of it may go towards the cars. $600 is better than nothing but it really is nothing.

I hate to be the downer cow at this party, but depending on how much you make, you'll receive somewhere between $300 and $600. Just to let you know.

Me? None, I'm still claimed as a dependent. My parents don't even get money for me. If you're 18+ and a dependent, neither you nor the people who claim you get the money you would get. Make sense? It's even confusing to me!

I've just decided. I'm going to eat the $600.

I swear, since last Thursday night when I had to stop eating for the surgery, I have seen some of the most awesome foods on tv, that have just made my mouth water. Right now, I want a roast beef sub, with some mozzarella, gravy, and a side of fries. This morning, I was dying for a thick, juicy steak. I JUST WANT MEAT BACK! :AH-HA_wink:
