Keep saving it until you need to use it. Don't go looking for excuses to spend it.

The best advice. Forget about it and look at it in a years time...

put it in a CD (certificate of deposit) or some other method of savings that offers a good amount of interest on it.

There is no need to blow it just cuz you got it.

Yeah, I would probably save it. It's best to have some back up money in case something happens like repairs.
