View Full Version : Woo! What can I spend my paypal bonus on?

Sometime since I last looked at my paypal account somewhere around 2004, they have credited me with a bonus of $2. I'm not sure what for exactly.

That's apparently 96p at current prices. So what can I buy with that?

I might panic buy 1/2 a litre of Unleaded petrol in case I suddenly buy a car this week and the fuel strike's still on.

Got any better suggestions?

You could get a Dundee Card (Statue of a Famous Cartoon Character) for 95p including postage...

day-trading or long term?

I got into shares for a bit - then I sold them and got mortgage(s) instead.
