What Would You Do If You Got an Extra Paycheck as a Holiday Bonus?
Even if you're getting a holiday bonus this year, chances are it's not the equivalent of an entire paycheck. We used to get little things at the end of the year. Like, a gift certificate for a free turkey, or a gift certificate for a free ham. You know, nothing huge, but it was a little nice extra perk. Of course it never got as big as being worth a whole paycheck...but if you DID get that much, how would you spend it?
According to a new poll, only 5% of people would use it to buy something for THEMSELVES, including 7% of men and just 3% of women.
Here are the top five things people would do if they got an extra paycheck right now.
1. 28% said they'd use it for bills or to pay down their credit cards.
2. 26% would buy MORE or BETTER gifts for their family members.
3. 23% would save it.
4. 7% would spend it on everyday expenses.
5. And 6% said "other."
I gotta admit, I would probably use it to pay bills. It's pretty boring, but... I'm boring like that, I guess. I'm predictable. I'm a creature of habit. I don't have anything I really want when it comes to special baubles or anything. Maybe some BT21 merch would be nice. But it's not, like, something I need.
What would you buy if you got an extra paycheck as a holiday bonus? Would you even spend it on anything?
