We have LEVERAGED ours from $1,200 to $1,448 by purchasing a set of $1,200 gift cards at two grocery chains for $1,320 each and by purchasing them on the PENFED VISA card for another $48 in 2% cash rebates. Spreading the two purchases over 2 billing periods for another month each of interest free money. As always, paying the monthly bills in full each month.

Editorial: No Rebates for You

Ninja.. just found out we woulda/shoulda/coulda gotten $1200, but no rebate for non-citizen taxpayers OR their citizen spouses.. no matter whether the citizen would have qualified.

Turbotax told me $1200 and I chose direct deposit, but at the online status-checker, I just kept getting the message that they "couldn't process my request" for info. Now I know why. Grrrr.
