Discover Surprise Snowflake

April 30th, 2014 at 03:57 pm

Yesterday in my mail there was a pretty plain envelope which didn't have a return address or anything. Good thing I opened it because it was a $5 Starbuck gift card from Discover!It stated they were sending it "just because", well heck I'll take it!!

I need to deposit my $1 bills today in order to tally up my monthly snowflake total! Make sure u check your mail for unexpected snowflakes!!

End of Month Snowflake

April 29th, 2014 at 09:16 pm

At the beginning of the year I opened up a Chase savings account that offered $200 reward.Well I just checked my account and it has posted. Actually it posted last week but I'm just now looking at the account. If I'm not mistaken I have to leave the account open a few more months or the reward will be forfeited but I will double check for sure. This will be going straight to the mortgage!!

Another credit

April 25th, 2014 at 12:47 pm

I took advantage of another AMEX offer. I bought a $25 gift card from PetSmart and got $5 reward. I love how Amex rewards the credit right away, so that's $10 so far. I still need to take advantage of the Lowe's and Sweet Tomatoes offers. I will probably just buy gift cards at both. I also got an email from Petco saying that shipping is free today with any purchase. Well Amex has a offer where if you spend $25 you get $5 so I might check out dog food. I normally buy dog food at the commissary because its much cheaper but I will see.

That Was Quick

I just applied for the Quick Silver card on the 19th and I got it in the mail today. I think I will just charge $500 of my tuition on it and be done Smile

I also bought $6.99 download from ITunes to take advantage of AMEX and the $5 rebate has already been credited to my account. Will count that as a snowflake.

CC Reward

After reading Keeping it Frugal's post, I looked up the Cap One Quicksilver card. It's currently offering a $100 reward when you spend $500 in first 3 months. I can make that easy so I applied and was approved. YAY for more snowflakes Smile

AMEX Offers

April 13th, 2014 at 12:45 am

For some reason I decided to log into my AMEX account to see if they had any good offers and sure enough they do.

1. Spend $5 at ITunes get $5 credit
2. Spend $50 at Lowes get $10 credit...I'm going to purchase gift cards
3. Spend $25 at PetSmart get $5, wish I would have checked yesterday because I just took my dog to the groomer. I will get gift card for later use

I think all offers expires 30 Apr so I will take care of things this week!

Target Snowflake

April 7th, 2014 at 03:14 am

Today I went to Target to take advantage of the deal they had on Cottonelle toilet paper. Basically I bought 2 30 double rolls which equals 60 that was on sale for $15.99. In return a got a $10 gift card which basically makes it $11 each. Not too shabby, so I'm counting that gift card toward my April snowflakes.

Tax return: $3721
Southwest CC rewards: $500
CC Annual fee refund: $99
