14. Buy a Car or Motorcycle


To truly blow your wad here you are going to want to go sports car or Harley. The size of your bonus will help you decide whether you are going Miata or Mercedes, but regardless of your choice you should also consider a convertible. Have fun at the dealership and let them know you are looking to make a cash sale, which will get them wet and also desperate when you threaten to walk away. Settle for nothing, this is your time and you control the sale. Make sure the top is down when you pull into your office parking lot and don’t worry about that reserved sign in the front – it’s clearly there for you.
