Here at KBEAR, we’ve been giving away a Grand In Your Hand every weekday.  In case you are having trouble figuring out what to do with $1,000… are some suggestions!


1.  Buy a iPhone X.

2.  Drink 235 pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks  

It’s that time of year. At $4.25 a pop for a tall size, you’d be able to consume 235 of the fall drinks for the same price as an iPhone X. But to drink a full $1,000 worth of pumpkin spice lattes before December, you’d need to make about three Starbucks runs per day.

3.  Eat 83 slices of avocado toast

Avocado toast doesn’t come cheap, but $1,000 goes a long way. At a chain like Le Pain Quotidien, where avocado toast runs $12 in New York City, you can eat breakfast for 83 mornings in a row for the price of a new iPhone.

4.  Sail to the Caribbean

Spend seven luxurious days cruising through the Caribbean for the same price as one iPhone X. Both Norwegian and Royal Caribbean offer routes from Florida and Louisiana down through the Bahamas and other Caribbean islands for around $1,000 per person.

5. See Billy Joel live in concert 10 times — or up close once

Follow the trend of prioritizing experiences over things, and splurge on concert tickets to see your favorite band. Tickets go for as low as $100 to see Billy Joel perform at New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden, but floor seats can run up to $2,000 resale.

6. Spend nine days at Disneyland

Day passes for the Anaheim, Calif., resort run $110 per day on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, although normal weekdays only cost $97 per visit. Stretch your vacation even longer by purchasing a multi-day pass, which discounts daily tickets, but expect to shell out for food and souvenirs.

7. Invest your money and watch it grow

Never underestimate the power of compound interest: $1,000 invested today will more than double over 10 years, growing to $2,225 with an 8 percent rate of return. Put away that much every month and it will only take you 25 years to become a millionaire.
