BuzzLine: Save It or Spend It?

uncle samDon’t forget to move your clocks forward this weekend, and don’t forget to pay your taxes.

You have a little over a month to get those returns filed with Uncle Sam.

The sooner you do it, the faster you’ll receive that refund check, if you’ve got one coming to you. According to USA Today this week, the average refund so far this year is up three percent to $3,034.

Surveys show that most Americans will use the cash to pay down debt. Those between 18 and 34 years old are most likely to spend it on shopping or entertainment. What about you?

For a cup of coffee at the nearest Starbucks, tell us in six words what you would do with a $3,000 tax refund.


Put your six word refund plan in the comments below.

If we like your fiscal policy best, we’ll buy you a cuppa joe.

Winner announced next week. Congrats to Chance who won last week’s Ben & Jerry’s-themed BuzzLine with “Space Odysseed – dark chocolate and pomegranate.” Yum. Your gift card is on the way.

Thanks for playing.
