H&R Block Tax Course

July 22nd, 2012 at 07:28 pm

I'm signing up for a class that starts 21 Aug. I was told that if you score 84% or above on the end of course test then they would give you a job application. Has anyone been through the course?

I'm looking at this as a possible side job while I work on my PhD this Fall.

Saturday Snowflake

I received a check from secondspin.com for $26.01 I also got an $5 AGC from SB so I've passed my $50 goal with a total so far of $53. That's not counting the $5 dollar bills I've saved this month!! Persistence is key

Score at the 99 cent Store

July 14th, 2012 at 02:04 am

They had the 1 pound tub Earthbound Farms Organic Baby Spinach marked 2 for 99 cents. I immediately grabbed 2 with the intention of freezing most for later use. When I got to the counter, they rung up for $1 each but I informed the cashier about the sign. She called for help, I normally don't like holding up the line but oh well. Sure enough they were priced wrong but they gave it to me at the advertized price. Nice Score!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Small Snowflake

July 13th, 2012 at 05:10 pm

I got paid $3 from Pinecone today. I also mailed off another box of stuff to secondspin.com so hopefully I'll get paid before the month is out. While cleaning out my closet I found something I had bought from Kohls but never used so that's going back, especially since the receipt is still in the bag.

Finally I have $15 towards July's $5 bill challenge. I'm hoping to end the month with at least $50 in snowflakes but we will see.

First Snowflakes of the Month

July 5th, 2012 at 08:16 pm

I just received a $7 check from Cash4Books today in the mail. I also just completed a Pinecone survey so I should get $3 soon. Small amounts but it's still early in the month!!

Ebates and Amazon

July 3rd, 2012 at 12:34 am

Normally Ebates doesn't offer cash back for Amazon purchases until now for limited time only. If you order Shoes & Sandals, Grills & Patio Furniture, Swim Shop and Grocery & Gourmet Food, you get 3% cash back. I doubt if this work if you use Amazon gift card for payment but we can always try and see.

So if you have shopping to do anyway and it's with Amazon, you might as well go through Ebates to earn a few snowflakes. Just passing it on...
