I'm always happy when I get a rebate check in the mail. It's always unexpected income, as generally by the time I get a rebate I have forgotten that the corresponding item had a rebate. So, when I get a rebate, it seems like "free money," which is probably dangerous, because it isn't—I already factored the rebate into the cost of the item.

Same thing happens to me with taxes. In April I usually get a fairly good chunk of money, and for whatever reason my mind just doesn't like the thought that I already worked for it.

I guess that'll stop happening when I start working all year long.

Yeah, no kidding... that's where my tablet came from. Which, incidentally, had a $100 rebate.
