    Would you rather receive an all-expenses paid vacation or the same amount in cash?

    Would you rather receive an all-expenses paid vacation anywhere in the world, or the same amount (valued) paid to you in cash?

    themastudiosposted 7 years ago

    Well it would depend on what value "valued" means. But most likely due to rough times, the cash.

    I'd take the cash. I like to travel, but I'm not very good at actually getting out and doing stuff when I'm somewhere new, so I wouldn't really get my money's worth out of the vacation. And with the money I could buy something that will last a lot longer than a vacation.

    That would depend upon: a) where the vacation was to be spent, b) with whom I was going to spend it, and, c) what the amount of money was, that was involved.

    Cash - it pays the bills... even though I really could use a vacation right now!

    I don't like to travel so I would like the have the same amount in cash so I could do things to my house, or fix things up.

    Give me the cash! in today's economy I can take a daycation to the local mall and feel relieved with only spending a fraction of the overall prize smile

    I'd take the cash and go on vacation. Because I'm smart.

    I am a 'home body' so I would prefer the value paid in cash.  I am not much of a 'traveler'.

    I LOVE to travel, but I'd still take the cash smile  Usually those types of vacations send you to an all-inclusive resort, cruise, or other tropical place where you lounge around and do nothing... I like exploring, being free to choose where I go, where I stay, and what museums or restaurants I visit.  Plus I'm still young and not afraid of hostels or cheap lodging, so I'd ultimately have a better vacation AND money leftover.

    Depends on the vacation offered; since I have small children, i would take the cash and pay off some bills.

    Cash of course, I'm far more confident in my ability to take a day trip or overnighter somewhere cheap, than to go on say...a luxury cruise. That being said, I do hope to go on a cruise one day. I had planned to when I got back from Iraq...

    Meh...

    Cash, that way you can take a vacation and leave enough money left over to pay the taxes due at the end of the tax year. If you take the vacation instead of the cash, you'll owe a hefty amount of tax.

    Vacation, you can't buy memories like that, well in a sense. I would rather the vacation if I could bring my family along and such. smile

    Cash i would want cash, that way i can buy what i need right now.

    I'd take the cash.  We could use the money for other things that will last more than a week's vacation.

    However, if you had asked me that question before the recession,  I would have taken the vacation, hands down.

    Sarah Griffithposted 7 years ago

    Depends on if I get to choose the location for the vacation. But I'd probably choose vacation. Otherwise I'd end up spending the money on bills, which is not as much fun.

    Right now I would say cash but 2 years from now I would go with the vacation.

    I would prefer the cash...you can then choose what you want to do with it.

  20. DaNoblest profile image61

    I would chose the cash and buy items that I would use frequently. This way I would enjoy continuous benefits instead of just memories.
