I would invite my best friend over and spend the day in the sun, beside my pool! Then I would make reservations at my favorite restaurant and be waited on. 
it has been a horrible time for us during the pandemic. I need just one day to do nothing and be waited on!!!

I would invite my daughter on a road trip we are going through so much especially her juggling work and online classes with 3 kids due to covid . She needs a break . we would stop at music stores and buy records and eat sea food and get our feet done . And we would just sing , talk , and pray for wisdom to make it through the difficult times we are dealing with.

Take the grandkids to a local nursery to buy fruits and veggies to plant. Then teach them how to grow their own food.

I am an elderly senior in a wheelchair. My insurance does not pay for transportation. I have been offered the covid vaccine twice but could not get there. I also have a walker . and could take lyft. But they are taking advantage of pandemic and doubled their prices. I would take Lyft to get covid shot with the money. I have fixed income. I have not received stimulus. No seniors have. The illegals come first in california . The governor Newsome caters to the Pelosi nephew Newsom. Who is soon to be recalled for his terrible hypocritical agenda. Literally destroyed the state catering to them. So I do not expect my stimulus. Somebody has to pay for seniors hospital bill after BLM or Antifa beat them in their wheelchair. He paid the illegals stimulus without even consulting the people. AND gave them more than Americans got. I would also find a nice AMERICAN ( if one exist ) restaurant and eat something where the menu does list tacos and burritos and rice and beans.

Definitely a spa day - massage, a new haircut, a nice lunch out, and maybe even a night in a hotel.

Having moved to a new state for a new job then winding up working remotely after COVID for a fuller year I need a mental health day and time off for self-care. I would use the $200 for a daytrip /spa outing and a nice bottle of wine. Definitely would be in a natural surrounding to bask in the quiet and get myself centered and calm.

I would go have a Spa Day. At 64 yrs of age, I have never been to a Spa. Would love to have a facial.  Then I would end the day at IKEA, (my fav) walk the whole store.

I would take a leisurely walk in the Metro Park with my wife. Then perhaps to a movie and a very special romantic dinner for two.

I would make it a day to indulge all of my senses!  I live in the Philadelphia area and there are so many wonderful gardens and trails...Longwood Gardens and Valley Forge Park, just to name two.  I would create a playlist on my phone and download songs that bring me joy and make me feel hopeful.  I would get takeout with my favorite food.  (Maybe a massage too?)   Then I would rent or download a great movie that is fun and escapist and sit with my beloved pets and watch it.  I would take money that I have left over to donate to my favorite charity.  Then take a long bubbly bath and slip into bed for a good night's sleep.

I’d use that money to purchase some sod for my yard. My grandkids are playing in a dirt courtyard right now, and it would be really nice if I had some grass out there for them to play on.

With $200 and a day off, I'd hire a professional to perform some much-needed home repairs (using my AARP discount, of course), then run errands for elderly relatives and neighbors.

I would meet my closest relatives half way between our cities at a beautiful little town,  perhaps reserve a large enough room that we could socially distance at a restaurant there and do some walking through the local parks and lake,
