Of course I say "extra" like we've all just got 5 G's lying around. With our latest phase of the Cash Code underway, it got me thinking about what I'd do if I won five grand.

Yes, you could of course pay some or all your bills, but where is the fun in that? Seriously ...

Here are a few items and ideas circling the internet that you may want to consider if you end up winning the Cash Code contest.

    Take a weird vacation

    Everyone automatically thinks of Hawaii or some cliche vacation destination, but you could stretch $5,000 pretty far if you were to make a specific decision and just make sure you did it right.

    Getting tickets to Harry Potter World in Florida will run you about $400 for two people staying for two days.

    I say you bust up in there alone, and spend five days wasting enough cash so that you only have enough to get home at the end of the week.

    That's a lot of Butterbeer!

    Get some exotic pet

    Find some animal you've always admired and get one for under a thousand bucks. Then spend $4,000 to make that little dude or dudette's life awesome!

    Fill your entire house with hamster tubes and just ... I dunno.

    New TV

    If you were able to slap down five grand at the TV gettin' place, you better have enough room in your vehicle to get that bad boy home.

    It looks like the best one you can get for that kind of money will be around 75" and be able to support 4K viewing epicness.

    In researching this subject, I saw a television that was $52,000! Yeah ... You'd have to win a lot of our giveaways.
