    Stimulus Check

    Just got my "Stimulus" money from the gov.

    Not quite ready to go spend it and stimulate the economy...but wow that was quick.

    Anybody else?

    Re: Stimulus Check

    The payments are being sent numerically based on the last two digits of Social Security numbers. My last two digits start with an 8, so I guess many will spend theirs before my check is in the mail.

    Re: Stimulus Check

    Got it last week. Throwing it toward the house we're buying. That should cover my part of boosting the economy for now.

    Re: Stimulus Check

    I've got a MacBook Pro to go buy (my Dell died the week before finals 2 years ago) -- between my refund check and my stimulus check, that should cover the entire cost.

    Re: Stimulus Check

    I think we're scheduled to get ours here pretty soon.

    It will go right back into savings to replace the money we paid in taxes on April 15th.

    Mine is not scheduled to get to me until mid June. I owed a little to the Feds this year so I'm getting a hard copy check. I think I will be one of the last one's to get it.

    Re: Stimulus Check

    Strangely, ours was direct deposited 2 days ago. I say strangely because I can't remember ever giving them my account # for a direct deposit. We usually owe Fed and get a similar amount in refund from State.
    Did they take the account # off of my check? Just seems weird.

    Re: Stimulus Check

    Got mine but we budgeted it for a little more than we got. I don't want to seem ungrateful, but man, guess I'll have to tool around in my '89 Volvo station wagon a little longer.

    It's going toward a family vacation (the 1st we've ever had) so I will enjoy every second of it.

    Re: Stimulus Check

    I got mine over a week ago, I still haven't spent it. Probably won't.

    Re: Stimulus Check

    Haven't yet received mine, but I expect it to be direct deposited in a week.

    Mine will likely head straight into the bank. I recently bought a new computer and the stimulus check will "cover" the cost of most of it, but I'd have been buying the computer anyway regardless of Uncle Sam tossing any extra scratch my way. Pretty much everything else I've spent money on (or will spend money on) this time of year I'd be doing anyway regardless of this extra scratch.

    Re: Stimulus Check

    I received mine yesterday. I don't have anything special for it, other than it will go into my checking account. I had about $600 in auto repairs done to my SUV last month, so I guess it will cover that expense.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    You must have had a federal refund sometime in the past that you have had direct deposited. Or if you owed on your fed. return you still could have filled out your direct deposit info for the rebate check. They should be direct depositing those that requested a direct deposit refund. You may want to check your previous few years returns and see if you had your acct. # at the bottom of page 2 of the 1040.

    Mine should just about cover the cost of the postage increase on Monday.

    I thought I was going to get mine deposited directly today, but haven't yet.
