if you got your $600 or $1200 stimulus check what would you do?
Hmm..this poll, even if done on a grand scale that could be considered "scientific" might be biased as people generally feel better about themselves saying they'd save their money rather than spending.
I wont qualify for it because I am an unemployed college student....so I wont vote.
But if I did get one, I would spend it. Probably on a new iPod since I've lost mine.
Or, probably on a couple of Bobby Jones hybrids.....
Actually, I will probably do that anyway, without the nice gov't check....
who's out for scientific? i'm just curious.
Me too or spend it on fixing something around my house.
Well we can see who the home owners are at least.
That'd be the greater part of my mortgage for the month, so I guess the extra would go to...getting a head start on other bills.
Or a powerful lens for my camera.
that's a good call on extra income also.
i want to change out the exhaust on my hemi magnum also. $600 could do that easily.
i have savings. i have 401k. i do all i can to provide for me later. that's what making >$75k allows. so give me extra money and i spend it on a toy. an extra. but i spend it.
I'd Make it rain.
Pacman in my hero!
I'd spend it, but I'd spend on on things I was already planning on buying. Does that count as saving too?
I'd buy an assault rifle.
Re-coup the cost of the HDMI cabels I just bought...OUCH!
Buy new tires for my truck and pay a couple bills.
get monster or something? i've gotten pretty inexpensive ones and so far getting great results. i love the fact 1 cable carries audio AND video - much less clutter in my living room now!
Yep, I got me some monsters. I hope they do the trick. Right now everything is being connected with old cabels or the cheap ones that came with the equipment.
I got so frustrated I just said screw it and took the plunge.
I hope you kept the receipt.
monsters are pretty pricy but i can get good ones on ebay for $15 a pop give or take.
monsters are good and i've got some of those too but never saw a huge difference in the less expensive ones on my system.
buy those hdmi cables at monoprice.com.
everywhere else is a complete rip-off.
the sad thing is spending it on electronics which is what i would probably do if i hadn't just completed my media room, would mean buying a lot of foreign stuff
so much for my stimulating the economy....
