    hey all, I just received $150 on a prepaid VISA. It expires at the end of october. I need to decide on what to use it for. My question is what would you use it for? Would you buy games? Pay bills? Put it towards something more expensive? Christmas shopping? New cell phone? Whatever. If someone gave you $150, how would you use it? thanks

    You really need advice on how to spend 150?

    How about groceries?

    It would all go toward paying off debt. The faster that's done the more money you have in the long run.

    What do you need to spend it on? AT&T bill? Some money towards rent? groceries? Credit Cards? Car payment? If you have all the necessities paid for, then splurge it on what you want. We can't tell you how to spend your money, but we can give you good suggestions :)

    College textbooks, even though mine for the semester only came to about $65. :D

    $150? Bills most likely, if all paid for. Still would not think much of it, as $150 does not go far in this day and age.

    Put it in a fireproof box under your bed, and before you go to sleep every night, take it out and huddle over it whispering "My precious.... my precious......"

    Sell it for the cash equivalent then put that money into my savings account.

    It just depends on what you need to pay right then. Pay what you need to, and if you don't need to pay anything then spend it on some wants.

    Swap it out for pennies and take a penny bath or cover a wall with pennies.

    Etsy. Or some furniture. Or both. Or, treat my parents to a really good supper. Or, buy my sister some panniers for her bike. Actually, I know what I would use it for...my SO needs some new work shoes, badly.

    I'd probably buy AppleCare for my laptop (haven't done so already).
