    Lets hear it.


    I have all of my 32k bonus and then some, but I've been a pussy and I've just been doing CD's. I've heard some ideas from the civvies at work, but I'm all ears for more ideas.

    www.bankrate.com and look for a money market account until a 7% CD comes around again.

    I thought this was going to be about what people ACTUALLY spend their bonus money on.

    Back in the late 70's you could always tell who got their reenlistment bonuses with all the new Trans Ams parked at the dorms.

    get some diamond-encrusted platinum grillz? :dunno:











    seriously though, pay off debt. Depending on where you live, that could be a hefty amount towards a downpayment for a house. If you are debt free, invest.

    Well I'm debt free and I don't believe my fiancee and I will be looking into buying a house for the next 2-4 years. Together we make about $110k a year and we're in our mid 20's so I'm looking to start early with investments.

    Based on the responses and what I've heard at work, money market accounts, stocks and high % CD's are the winner. I'm going to talk to a financial consultant at my bank too and see what ideas they are pushing.

    Invest in coke and other drugs. They give you the best returns. Better than any CD, stocks, etc.. Hookers pretty much go hand in hand with drugs, so that's a bonus.
