We have thought about it since the stimulus was announced. We are retired, no longer own an RV, no house or vehicle payments, just monthly living expenses.
We have decided to send it to my nephew living in Texas. He has been suffering from stage 4 colon cancer since last fall. He has lost many family members to this terrible disease, including his mother. He has a wife and 10 year old son. He has been a EMT and Fireman for about 12 years, went to Houston for several weeks during the floods. He has not worked since November, and his wife had to quit to take care of him. He is a selfless, God fearing man and this is just a small part we can do to help his family...

We will donate it to a food bank as many people need this far more than I do. The totally sad thing as this government is spending another trillion of FAKE money. America will need decades to recover and that is only with responsible government.

I told our broker, we'd probably invest it since the wife vetoed spending it on beer and hookers.

Technically the payment is a refundable tax credit that qualifying Americans can apply to their 2020 tax bill, but the government is handing it out early.
A tax credit reduces your tax bill on a dollar-for-dollar basis. Refundable credits, like the stimulus payment, mean you can get cash back even if you don't owe anything.
Don't worry: The one-time payment won't reduce your tax refund. If you're owed one and you file your tax return, you'll still get the full refund as a separate payment.

After donating some of ours ... I'll probably use the remainder to continue paying off our credit card balance that was accrued through the buying of RV fuel. [emoticon]

Gave it to the credit card to help pay for the new solar system we had installed on our 5th wheel last month in Quartzsite.

Maybe a new M1A or Mini30


I've already got an M1A and ammo for it. I'll be buying some ammo and some 30 round magazines for the M1 carbine someone gave me a year ago. The gun is in excellent condition and the bore looks pristine. He only had about 200 rounds of ammo and the original magazines are a little rusty. It'll make a great companion rifle when I go nomading out west when I retire.
