Mine came 2 Fridays ago. Also one check for the two of us. I deposited it that Saturday. I'm waiting for the bicycle shop to call and say they have a bike I want. should be early next week! Hard to stimulate the economy when you have to wait for the store to invite you in!

A month ago we had 5 stimulus checks deposited electronically. Ruthie, the 3 grandkids and I each got one.

We spent ours already. Got it awhile back, and my wife determined that we needed a new sofa. So as soon as the furniture stores opened we went corona couch surfing. Found a nice (and very large - perhaps a bit too large) top grain leather sectional. It arrived a couple of days ago, and my son and I picked it up today. The store had a deal where you got 20% of what you spent in "Bob Mills Bucks" to spend on something else in the store, so we got a new dining table as well.

I didn't want to mess with selling the old furniture, so we hauled them down to Goodwill and donated them this afternoon as well.

I got a check also but my SS is direct deposited.

I originally heard if you had SS direct deposited your stimulus would be direct deposited also.

Don't know why they didn't (aren't) doing it that way.

Would have saved them the extra expense to cut & mail a check and saved me a trip to the bank.

Irregardless I'm glad they shared some $$ with me too.

My check arrived with yesterdays mail, it was not for the full, $1,200.00, but I am not going to complain as I was not expecting it.

I am going to donate half of it to my community food bank. Right now, they need every cent they can get their hands on.

Mine showed up yesterday on a debit card. I was not expecting one and have no idea how much it is.

I'm going to deposit it in the bank and use it to pay my taxes next year. I'm sure they'd need it, printing all that extra money gets expensive.

Just curious, Ivan. Is there a bicycle shortage out there, too?
Saw a piece on the local (Omaha NE) news about a bike shop that has run out of bikes because so many people were buying them to have for exercise and entertainment during these strange times. The owner of the shop said his inventory was at levels he usually sees at the end of summers.

Our experience too. We have also filed electronically for many years - still got a paper check.

There should be a 800 type number on the card. Call it and you should see how much is in there. They will ask some identity type questions!

I won’t receive any government stimulus so I stimulated myself:

648
610-1
16-4
DB9
29-5

Apparently Idle Hands really make the Devil's work

I found mine in the mail box two weeks ago. Bought another high end 22 rimfire with beautiful wood stock. thanks to the powers in control, the new 22 has really stimulated me to go to the range and the blessing- my 6 year old grandson shown up "what you doing". I have him ringing gongs at 50 yards off the bench, he has never shot a gun before and he says " I like this". In two trips, he is ringing the 4 inch gong almost every shot off the bench and has even hit the 12 inch one at 100 several times after I popped the scope up 4 minutes. Changed the will a few days ago and yep, Grandson gets the first gun he ever shot when this old guy finally goes to the big range in the sky. Stimulus was a good thing at this place.

My wife and I got our stimulus check yesterday too.

We had already started stimulating the economy. My wife blew her share last month on a new Speed Queen commercial top-loading washer that she's wanted for some time.

I ordered a Don Hume H715-M holster for my S&W 4053 and it is in transit within the USPS system somewhere between here and Oklahoma. I bought a Smith & Wesson Model 3913NL off the internet last week and picked the gun up at the FFL two days ago.

I still have more than half my share of stimulus smoldering in my pocket.

My wife got her's on April 29, I've yet to receive anything.

Didn't know just who it was for till she got a letter a week or so ago. She also just applied for SS last year.

*I* have been collecting SS since 2009, starting as Disability till I turned 65, when it changed over to just SS benefits.

Guess I'm just farther down the list for stimulus checks, or?

All I have planned for is a Ruger LCP II .22lr, as am well stocked with both guns and ammo (@71, 20k+ rounds in various calibers should last me the rest of my lifetime.)

She can have the rest for whatever she wishes. She's very low maintenence and not prone to frippery.

Just wondering why we weren't both paid at the same time.

Rob

We received a direct deposit of $1100 a few weeks ago and were thrilled to get it. Yesterday we received a check for twice that much and were blown away. i suppose we can look at it like a tax refund since we still pay in a chunk every year

Ours came in the form of a debit card with both my name and my wife's.
I went to our credit union and they were able to draw all the funds from the card and put into our checking account.

We got a joint check on May 12. We file our tax return by paper, being old-fashioned and cautious about private information going on the internet. Our Social Security funds are direct deposited. I don't know why the IRS and SS people don't cross-reference the banking numbers so nearly all can be direct deposited. That would be a relatively simple thing to accomplish, but NO.... had to go down to the bank in this age of corona virus concern.

John, nowadays banks have an app for various functions, including depositing checks. At least my First Hawaiian Bank and BOA banks do. (FHB is limited to no more than $2,500 at a go. Dunno about BOA.) Essentially you just endorse your check, use your smartphone to take a pic of front and back, type in how much it is, choose which account it goes into, and you’re done. Very simple and works like a charm.

I wasn’t expecting a card and thought it was a loan offer or fake credit card and almost threw it out.

Call the number to activate it and you will get the balance.

It works like a charm IF you have a smart phone. My cell phone is a flip model, and although it has some "convenience" features, it's basically a phone - used to communicate the old-fashioned way - verbally. I can receive text on it, but I prefer not to - navigating the tiny phone keys doesn't do it for me to reply to anything in that manner. If you want to communicate with me, call me and we can talk.

Call me LeRoy Gibbs (NCIS) if you want, but I like to keep things simple and traditional. I'm still struggling with a laptop and Windows 10 when my old beast with Windows XP died a few months ago. New isn't always better for me - maybe that's why I like revolvers...

I guess they will have virtual soulmates before too long, but I think I'll stick with my high school sweetheart I've known since we were in 3rd grade. We've been married now for almost 59 years, and that's the way we want to continue!

Mine showed up in the mail last week. Kept out $200 for pocket money and put the rest in savings.
My younger son just got married. Now they're house hunting. I gotta feeling that they're gonna need it more than me.

Mine supposedly mailed on 5/15. I got it yesterday, cashed it, and put the money in my safe. Hopefully I can use it to take the grands somewhere later this summer. I had to pay in $1180.00 in income tax this year so I didn't feel real guilty about getting a $1,200.00 check. What worries me though is how are we gonna pay for this? If they just print more money to cover it it will make all of our money less valuable.

In theory, we and our kids and grandkids will all pay for it in various ways.
In practice, as one of the people who earned enough not to get a stimulus check, I anticipate an increase in my taxes as part of the "how we pay for it" mechanism.
It used to be said that the problem with socialism is that eventually the government runs out of other people's money. This limitation is unfortunately removable--just debase the currency by printing more.

The three grandkids here each got $500. I explained to each why they were getting it and that it was theirs and not ours. I also told them that Ruthie and I would help them decide how best to use it.

That's my boy.

I informed the IRS of my account a month ago and got a deposit for both of us 10 days later. Last week I got a letter from the White House that a deposit was forthcoming.
