I have a miniature windfall coming my way from Walgreens due to a promotion they did in the fall that yielded a much larger response than they had anticipated. With the purchase of select products you earned reward dollars toward spa services....only they hadn't really lined up spas to work with this program. So they decided to give the holders of these reward dollars an option between a debit card and getting some spa treatments. I opted for the cash to the tune of $150. Never mind that I don't think I spent more than $8 to acquire the participating products. Anyway...this debit card is due to arrive any day now and I'm having a terribly hard time deciding how I will use this precious piece of plastic.
A. take the ultra-responsible approach, pretend like this never happened, send an extra $150 to the mortgage or van savings and use the card for groceries?
B. take a much-needed spring break from cooking and head to Costco for a cartload of ready-to-pop-in-the-oven meals?
C. buy a lavish gift for my husband's upcoming birthday? (Hmmm...what would he even want?)
D. use it to pay for the rental car or meals on our upcoming getaway?
E. keep it in my pocket and use it to buy a whole lot of secondhand treasures throughout the year?
F. go splurge and redecorate an entire room?
G. put it toward the purchase of a new digital camera that is quick enough for capturing kid moments?
H. start thinking of more options?
So, what would YOU do?
