Smart Ways to Spend Your Tax Refund

Smart Ways to Spend Your Tax Refund

It’s that time of the year… tax season! Doing your taxes is rarely enjoyable, but it does get better once you get that tax refund. Here are some smart ways you can spend your refund.

Pay of Credit Card Debt

Credit cards can be helpful but they can also be pesky when debt builds up on them. Use your tax refund to pay off some debt and avoid interest payments.

Start/Build an Emergency Fund

An emergency fund is a perfect in-between of your checking account and savings account. It’s money that you could pull from in case you really need it. Start a new account or build onto an existing emergency account.

Savings

It never hurts to put more money into savings. It’ll help you earn positive interest and it puts a little extra boost in your account.

Fixer Upper

Have you always hated that pink bathroom tile? Put your tax refund money towards something in your house that you’ve always wanted to fix.

Donate

Why not give back with your tax refund? Pick your favorite charity (or multiple charities) and make a donation to them. Check out one of our favorites here.

Prepaid Debit Card

Prepaid debit cards have the benefit of no bank fees, so if you want to give your kids an allowance with your tax refund, this is a great way to go.

 

2017 Buick Models Safer Than Ever

2017 Buick ModelsThere are a lot of reasons why you should call a Buick “yours,” but one of the biggest reasons is top safety. This year, the 2017 Buick models feature more safety than ever.

The 2017 Buick Envision has earned a five-star overall vehicle score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). To earn this high score, a vehicle must meet stellar safety requirements, and the Envision certainly does. It didn’t only take home five stars from the NHTSA, it also earned the 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ for the second year in a row.

So, what makes Buicks so safe? It starts with top standard safety technology like radar and ultrasonic sensors that always keep drivers safe and confident. Available features like Forward Collision Alert and Forward Automatic Braking help give the driver an extra hand on the road and help prevent accidents.

The all-new Buick Envision also has features like front crash prevention and high intensity discharge headlights, all which helped it earn the top IIHS safety rating.

“Safety, quality and craftsmanship are designed into every Buick,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick Sales, Service and Marketing.

No matter what 2017 Buick model you choose, you know that you’ll be getting amazing safety.
