These stimulus deposit memes are so relatable.

Whether you’ve received yours or are playing the waiting game, rest assured that if you’re qualified, they’re coming. And to say that some people are excited is an understatement. Folks are antsy, exuberant, and everything in between. It’s no wonder #StimulusDeposit is trending across social media.

When that stimulus deposit hits...

Unexpected money during a time of huge uncertainty? Yes, please! We can't help but feel like dancing and celebrating once that pending deposit finally clears.

We can't say whether checking your account over and over again waiting for the stimulus deposit to drop will help. But who are we kidding — you're gonna go ahead and do it anyway.

Harry, we see you. The relief funds are nice. Really, really nice. But there's still a pandemic happening, people.

Stay home, stay healthy, and spend wisely!
