Personally, I plan to use my rebate in a way I consider wise (or Foolish), and that is paying off debt and thus saving myself a few dollars of interest.

Yeah, me too. Won't that just blow a huge hole in their "save-the-economy-by-giving-people-money-to-spend" plan. Especially if a large number of people do likewise.

I don't think that matters. Any money saved is available for investment which is great for the economy. Debt retired also makes the money available for further investment.
