Tax season is finally almost over and for many of us that means a nice refund check will be coming soon. The average American tax payer will get back over $3,000 this year and that’s a nice chunk of change, but where should it go? Below you’ll find our top 5 picks for treating yourself this tax season.
Most people will say that it’s an excellent opportunity to pay off credit card debts, build your stock portfolio or start a new savings account for the future. However, if you’re looking for more instant gratification and a little less practical, you’ve come to the right place. Think of it as your reward for another successful filing and a time to treat yourself for getting through it once again.
2. Perhaps there’s a vacation that you’ve been putting off, a tax refund may be the excuse you need to book that travel. A plane flight to a tropical paradise can be a great reward for making it through another tax season unscathed. TripAdvisor has a list of the top 25 all-inclusive resorts around the world.
3. Tax time is stressful for many of us, and you may have a lot of tension to work out once you’ve filed. When the refund comes, use some of it to pay your body back. Treat yourself to a massage and relax those shoulders, or pay for a day at the spa. Groupon offers discounts on your local spa packages when you use the code SALE3 at checkout.
