I am sure you are aware of the rebate check that the gov't will send us; as a way to prevent our economy from a recession and the stock market from tumbling. Single tax payers can receive up to $600. (hmmm... this kind of wording makes me think that I will not receive the full $600.) Anyway, if I were to receive the full $600, I will most likely put it all toward my Roth IRA. (if I haven't maxed out this year's limit by then.) If I can't put it in my Roth. I will most likely save it and wait for another buy opportunity in the stock market.
