Most Americans are using (or will use) their stimulus checks on groceries or rent or bills. Some, however, must already have those things covers because their blowing the money on some off the wall stuff.
Based on social media posts, folks are using some, or even all, of their $1,200 on things like an inflatable dinosaur costume, a stripper pole, expensive sneakers, and more. One person even suggested some folks pool their money to buy a baby tiger, noting, “Hear me out — Who wants to combine their stimulus checks with me, and we can buy a tiger.”
Other purchases include paintball equipment, an AR-15 gun, and some tank tops and a bidet, although that person only used the money they had left over after paying an electric bill, car payment and a credit card bill.
