What Would You Do With $500?

Here’s a fun little poll for this cold and snowy Tuesday afternoon.

If Congress passes President Obama’s $825 billion Stimulus Plan, you will be getting a stimulus check in the mail for $500 ($1,000 for couples — income restrictions do apply.)

So, what would you do with your check? Would you stimulate the economy by spending it? And if so, on what? Would you pay down debt? Or would you show your faith in America’s flagging financial institutions and sock it away in the bank?

I’m boring: I’d add it to my online savings account and call it a day. What about you? Let us know in the comments section.
