I'm planning to use my tax refund for some online courses on both edx.org and coursera.org. My other plan is that depending on the cost of 4k computer monitors, I might use some of my cash towards buying one.

How about you folks?

All depends on my financial situation at the time. But normally my tax refund goes towards tattoos or my computer. Next year it'll take me to peru or brazil.... probably Peru though.

As much as I want to use it to buy a new computer, I decided it would be best to save it, since my wife and I are planning on having another baby next year.
Though with all the overtime I have been working, I will probably have enough for the computer anyways.

I used some of it to upgrade my GPU.

The rest more real life stuff like a new mattress for my bed and saved the rest for a sectional couch.

Furniture is getting a little old and that's in need of upgrading.

Unless I've boned up my monthly budget and my savings account goes critical I usually spend my refund on luxury items.

I love a nice kitchen. If I owned my own house i'd do the same.

Saving it. Not saving for anything in particular.
