What will you do with your Tax Refund?

By Danielle Babbington

According to a recent online story, nearly eight out of 10 U.S. taxpayers get refunds with an average refund being around $2,800. That is a nice little chunk of change. Now, if you’re fortunate enough to get a generous check from Uncle Sam, the question is – what should you do with it? Spend it or save it? Why not a little of both? This extra money is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a new tech toy. Check out some great accessories from Sprint that could be just the gadget you are looking for.
