This is assuming you have to do taxes (pay or get a refund).

Are you gonna do your part for the economy and spend part or all of your rebate check towards the con and its merchants/merchandise? It's pretty timely for the con and its merchants that some of its congoers will be getting a nice little money boost right before the con.


They should start showing up this week for those who did direct deposit with the paper checks to follow.

It comes right before the con, and therefore becomes con money ;D

I didn't see anything on the IRS sight about different dates for joint or single fillers. http://www.irs.gov/app/espc/ is the calculator to see how much you will get.

I'm glad my taxes are used so well. e.e

Since my rebate was DD I'm hoping I get mine shortly. By the way, the checks and such are now going out a week earlier than announced.

I'm using it to buy half of new laptop, hands down. My current one is about 7 years old and is literally falling apart. It's just making a $1,200 investment into something affordable and cheap..which is so WIN for me. I am the opitome of a skinflint. My father gave me $1,000 for Christmas and I haven't spent a dime of it. Not one dime. I couldn't bear to break up the family of monies!! ;A;

Thank god for Direct Deposit, But it won't be going toward ACen, I already has saved up for that. My check will be going completley toward paying off my credit card, As I recently charged 1700$ for my new macbook.

Ragh... according to the list, I should be getting mine the day ACen starts. I'll wait for it, because I'll be in Rosemont on Thursday already, and I just don't feel like a two-hour drive there and back.

We usually spend part of our regular tax refund on ACen, but the extra monies won't be needed at all for con. That's going toward home improvement... yay floors!
