At H&R Block, we love getting our clients their maximum refund. What’s even more exciting is when they use those refunds in awesome ways. How do we know? We ask them, of course!
Every client who completes an H&R Block survey is asked what they are doing with their refund. Some of the most common responses we get include:
- Saving or paying down debt
- New car
- Home improvements
- New technology
- College or continuing education
Which leads me to believe – our clients are so smart! I read a response from one woman who said her refund would be invested right back into her business. And I wanted to reach out and hug the couple that said they would be donating their refund to a nonprofit. Our clients are awesome.
Here are some of my other favorite client responses when asked how they will spend their refund.
One client is investing money to save money, with his own “personal solar power plant.”
It turns out livestock is fairly popular. One client will be buying more cattle, another said they would buy a miniature donkey. Kill me with cuteness.
Many clients will be buying special treats for their furry family members.
Even more will be taking time off – vacations big and small!
One client plans to get the most fantastic-looking churros. Yes, I would spend my refund on that, too.
A lot of folks are also spending that extra money on family – whether it’s caring for a newborn… (one of these little guys was born the same day momma got her refund!)
…enjoying more quality time together, saving for a child’s education or actually sending them off to college.
Finally, one client will be spending more time flying! It’s certainly an exciting way to spend that refund, but not at the top of the list for those of us afraid of heights.
Still need some help getting your piece of the billion back? Make an appointment at an H&R Block office or start online for free. Don’t delay! Remember the deadline is April 15. And Happy Refund Season!
