President Joe Biden just approved $1,400 stimulus checks for most Americans. When can you expect to receive yours?

President Joe Biden signed a $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill this week. This means many Americans will be receiving $1,400 stimulus check as soon as this weekend. During a press briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced the timeline for stimulus check deposits.

“People can expect to start seeing direct deposits hit their bank accounts as early as this weekend,” said Psaki.

However, some may find that it takes a little longer to receive their checks.

“This is, of course, just the first wave,” said Psaki. “Payments to eligible Americans will continue throughout the course of the next several weeks.”

In conclusion, within the next month or so, most American will have received their stimulus checks.

Get Some New Gear

Plan A Vacation

Okay, so you may not be able to escape to a luxury European vacation with your stimulus check alone. But you could put the money towards a bigger vacation. Or choose a destination that’s within driving distance for a mini weekend road trip. Is there a brewery you’ve wanted to check out in the neighboring state? Maybe there’s a state park you’ve wanted to hike for a while. Or maybe you just want to book a hotel near your house, take yourself out for a fancy dinner, and spent the night luxuriating in staycation vibes. Regardless of the destination, try putting your stimulus check towards some time away from your everyday life.

Make A Donation

If you’re feeling stable and already blessed with abundance in your life, you can put all or some of your stimulus check towards causes that help the communities around you.
