If the winner lives in subzero territory it’s time for a steaming coffee, chai or hot chocolate. Maybe a second one, too, to pour over his or her frozen toes.
And if you’re walking around in shorts and a T-shirt in Philly or New York? Further the “hey, it’s spring already!” illusion with a fancy iced drink. (Or hang on to it for the inevitable return of cold-and-damp days, when you’ll really need a little consolation.)
You could also be a nice person and give the card away to a relative or friend. Myself, I’d recommend being really nice to yourself in the winter. Bonus frugal points if you save your savings, i.e., set aside $10 cash in exchange for the $10 in buying power you now have.
