Cash! Then I can save most of it and still have a little to spend on #1 AND #2.

Cash then split it between a new car: Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Manual (19-20k), "vacation" :taking my little sister to Disney World, and the sapphire and setting I'm dreaming of :))

A 2008/2009 Saturn Sky Redline or a 2009 Nissan 370Z.

I would normally say cash but I have new car fever right now and REALLY want something cute, sporty, and red. And maybe some bling if I have any money left over. :naughty:

CASH!!!! Save some, get the BIG sparklie I want (ok smallish by PS standards, but HUGE for me), and another sparklie, AND a vacation... :D Yeah, I can make the $$$ scream w/how far I'll stretch it.... ;-)

Edit to add: So I've just played the shopping game...for slightly under 11k, I "got" 1.2 legato solitaire and huggies from WF, bezel band from BGD, and 2cttw bezel tennis bracelet from IDJ....not bad for a day of window shopping...with the remaining funds, take kids to Disney for vacation (earmark $5k-6k) then the rest to savings... :D

Normally I would say cash, but I'm not really sure this time, because I would really like a new car. I'm not sure which make/model yet, though!

The vacation also sounds nice, because I've been really wanting to try one of those Sandals resorts lately - but I don't think that my dream vacation would come even close to that amount, so it seems like a big waste for a $25k gift!

cash. With 25 K I could buy a new-to-me car (12000), a nice diamond ring (3000), a cruise (7000), and pay off some debts and have a bit leftover.

This.

I couldn't justify spending this amount of money on something like this unless it were a gift but I've always dreamed of a riviere necklace.

The Sandals resorts are a great vacation. I like the Royal Bohemian (in the bahamas) the best :) Money well spent, great food, beautiful facilities, unlimited booze, plenty of activities to do!

One day. I can almost see it when I pull in my driveway. It will wrap around one side of my house, have comfy rockers, and several ceiling fans.

Cash, no doubt about it. That would take care of just under 1/2 our outstanding debt and we'd be sitting a whole lot better.

Cash to apply directly to the principal of the mortgage, thank you.

Only one? Not fair!

I'd probably choose #4 because then I could either use it to add to our house fund or I could buy one of the other things on the list.

If I chose #2, I'd go to Hawaii, hands down. We'd fly first class, too.

If I chose #3, I'd get a Rav-4.
