Best Ways to Spend Your Stimulus Check

Like millions of Americans, you probably have gotten a stimulus check in the past few weeks. If you’re unlucky enough that it hasn’t hit yet, don’t worry – it’s coming soon. But now many of us are faced with the question, what do we spend our stimulus check on? It’s not every day over a thousand dollars of unexpected money falls into your lap, after all.

It’s springtime, so you should be considering what you can do to update and improve your vehicle for the incoming weather! Check your tires and make sure that winter wear isn’t too great. If your treads are getting low, this is a great time to replace them.

Check your miles, and consult your owners manual – have you been keeping up with basic maintenance on your vehicle? Getting your oil changed, your tires rotated, and your fluids flushed are all good things you can do to keep your car running.

If it’s time to invest in a new car, now is a great time to do so. Lots of dealerships are having great sales, so put that stimulus money to good use as a down payment on a new car. Remember, you’ve got the power – negotiations should always go in your favor!

Happy driving – and spending!
