I don't really need anything, so I would just put in saving account/invest.

My wife has always wanted a LV purse, so I'd let her get that. Whatever's left over would go to savings. I don't need or want anything.

It would move my retirement a couple months closer.

Why people buy some temporary POS if their retirement isn't funded is beyond me. Or their kids' college is funded.

I wouldn't--at least not most of it. I'd top of my retirement accounts and add to my savings account. I'd spend what was left over, maybe $1000 max.

I'd just add it to my taxable portfolio. It wouldn't have any effect on my spending pattern. If there is something I need I buy it . I don't have many needs and major wants.

The $4k would go straight into our vacation fund.

Big bucks. That would make two quarterly income tax payments.

I'd put it in the bank and wait for something to break.
