Mine is going to Ziggy953 for more corals so I guess he gets a double rebate!

Paty- If you earned $3,000 or more last year you will receive $600 back ($1200 if married).

I definitely earned a lot less than $3,000. I worked at a grocery store, I think I made like 500 bucks. ha Like I said I worked maybe two weeks last year, and didn't work after the grocery store closed. I'm also not married.

Well, since it's supposed to be a stimulus check...
If I spend it at the fish store, it will pay fisheries in Indonesia.
at Walmart it'll go to China.
A car, it'll go to Canada, Mexico or Japan.
Food will go to Mexico, Brazil or Columbia.

That pretty much just leaves beer and hookers if we want to keep it in our economy.
See? Spitzer was a true patriot!

Anywho, it'll probably end up in the bank so we can save up to buy a house. Then I'll have the room for bigger fish tanks.

Mine is going to pay off debt, my husband is on a real kick right now about getting rid of the only credit card we have. Though I can't blame him I would like to get rid of that bill too. Then int he future that will leave more money for my tank right.

Don't count on getting back anything then

I was disappointed when I learned that the "most of you will earn $600" is for those earning at least $35,000 a year. If you make less than that, your stimulus check is only $300. Yet you have to make at least $3,000 to even qualify for a rebate.

Well, I'm not sure what I made, but I know I got like $84 back. My parents did my taxes when they did theirs, so I'm really not all that sure.

It is going in the bank to replace the funds we just took out to buy a second tank. This one will be FOWLR
