    Yeah that sounds about right. It's definitely worth it if you have a vehicle you no longer need.

    I've long considered starting up a business one day. Certainly wouldn't be doing that right now. I was curious, is it harder to get a small business loan these days? I reckon it would be. Also, does your location play a role in what types of small business loans you can get?

    They had this for small businesses on the first round of checks. I'm just wondering if they're going to repeat this for the third round of stimulus. I'm sure more small businesses have gone out of business since then, especially since larger companies were find loop holes to get the stimulus money. If they have decided to do another round of paycheck protection, are they gonna be able to keep larger businesses who don't deserve the money, out?

    Agreed, not to sound trite, but they are the future of our country. We should be doing everything we can to ensure that they are protected and are given as many opportunities as possible.

    Looks like you can order them through Walmart. The CDC website says they are now available over the counter at most pharmacies.

    I've never done it before, but I may have to one of these days. I was wondering if there is a limit on the value of a vehicle that is to be donated? I mean, I've heard where you can even donate a vehicle that doesn't run. So, if that's the case. Does the government give you a tax break on the full amount of which that vehicle was valued?

    Looks as though there isn't a cap on that. Both the first and second checks didn't have a cap either.

Does look like its a state by state initiative at this point but I agree, it should be national. And just like with taking care of the military when they come back from serving, I don't understand how first responders and healthcare workers aren't better taken care of.
    Yep not seeing anything on the federal level. Only some states are moving initiatives forward to take care of these people. There certainly needs to be more relief for them.

    I've been reading reports where customers of JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo have been getting angry because they aren't distributing the checks as quickly as everyone has hoped. I bank with Wells Fargo, and no they aren't perfect (I've thought about changing banks on more than one occasion), but it didn't seem to affect when I got my last check. I'm just wondering if this time will be an exception. Both Chase and Wells Fargo have said that the timing of the payments are outside of their control, and that they will deposit funds as soon as they become available. Has anyone else heard about this?

    I can't agree more. While I was in college, I was a dependent into my early 20's. But I was very lucky that my dad had a lucrative occupation. I can't imagine what it would be like for families who are strapped for money, especially if they're putting more than one kid through college.
