I paid off my motorcycle - THANK YOU IRS.

No it isn't free money but all of you who are gripping about the fact you got one - send yours to me. I will be happy to spend it without bitching about it.

The checks have not all been sent yet. I will get one, but it hasn't arrived. Someone told me that it has to do with the last two digits of your social security number, and mine are high digits, so I'll be one of the last to receive mine.

@Daneeta- Bush declared an economic stimulus plan to aid people during these financial hardships. honestly, i'm with sid here. where did the money come from if we're 9trillion in debt? anyway.. in order to get one of these checks, she would have had to claim herself on her taxes (i think.. i didn't recieve a check either, and this is how i understood the plan to work). i know some people claim their parents, and of course i don't know what your situation is, but the only reason she shouldn't have recieved one is if she was claimed by someone else. i'm not sure the intricacies of the plan so don't quote me on any of this..

i know everyone is out for our money, but i'm wondering why banks didn't jump on top of this and advocate the opening of a savings account. if i had recieved a check, that's probably what i would have done with it. maybe buy a video game or two...

I sent the IRS way more in self-employment taxes last month than I will get in a stimulus check this month. So it will go to the bank to cover regular bills. Like every other dollar I get.
