What Can You Buy With $5,000 Dollars?
Our Breeze 96.1 Cash Code Contest is on, and you have a chance to win up to $5,000 dollars three times a day: 8am, 1pm, and 5pm. Just listen for the cash code word and enter the code either on your Breeze App or on 96.1 the Breeze.com
But, what can you buy with $5,000? Just to get your imagination going thought you might enjoy these. How about these four, from wisebread.com. The list goes from the logical to bizarre extravagance.
1. Pay Off Credit Card Debt
The average American household with credit card debt owes about $15,000. If this is you, making only the monthly minimum payment at a very typical 15% annual interest rate, it could take you seven years to pay off — and you'd end up wasting $8,000 to $9,000 on interest.
Pay down $5,000 of that debt now, and you could finish paying the rest in half the time, for only about $3,000 total interest.
2. Get a Cat
Half leopard, half house cat, the Bengal is a beautiful animal and can be yours for just $5,000
4. Eat a Burger
The Fleurburger 5000, served at Hubert Keller's Fleur eatery in Las Vegas, is made with Wagyu beef, foie gras, shaved black truffles, and truffle oil. It comes with a bottle of fine wine — and fries.
Now, if you do win, how will you use the money?
