MO won a $1000 Giftcard!!

July 14th, 2017 at 01:34 pm

Recently MO got a VM that he had won something in a raffle and to call to claim his prize. I said "Oh I don't remember you telling me you bought a raffle ticket" and he said "Oh yeah I didn't tell you because it was a $100 raffle ticket". WHHHHHHAAAAAT!
LOL! Apparently his sister was raising funds as she is a coach and he bought a $100 raffle ticket to support her sports team.

So he calls to find out what he won and it was a $1000 giftcard for a historic tourist town near us! We can use the GC for golfing (they have a nationally ranked golf course), shopping, dining, horse back riding, lodging, and their big draw which is an outdoor musical. So free vacation!! Smile

I did call and check that there is no expiration date and no fees so good on that too. I don't think we will have a chance to go this summer as we are pretty booked up, maybe early fall or next year.

Gift Card Inactivity Fees - Grrrr

July 14th, 2017 at 08:38 am

As part of his Christmas bonus MO got 2 $250 Visa Giftcards from his employer. We hadn't used them yet, I prefer to save things like that and use them for something special instead of just frittering them away. But I knew they assessed inactivity fees if the cards aren't used within 12 months, so we were going to make sure that we at least used them once by December of this year.

Yesterday MO was going to town to run some errands and our CC bill for the month is already pretty high due to car repairs, so I suggested he take one of the Visa Giftcards for the errands and that way they will be activated. He called the 800 number on the cards to confirm the balances and found out we had already been charged $14.50 per card in inactivity fees! Apparently the employer had purchased them many months before they were given to us! Which of course we hadn't thought about. So we lost $29 due to that. Frown MO did use some on each of the cards yesterday so we won't get any more fees for another 12 months at least.

We plan on taking at least one of the GCs with to Vegas to pay for eating out as that should be pretty much our only expense other then gambling.

So lesson learned! Don't assume GCs that you receive were just recently purchased!

CVS Clearance Lipbalm Deals

July 5th, 2017 at 07:23 am

I had a $10EB that I needed to use before we go on vacation at the end of July so I popped into CVS while we were in town this weekend. I didn't find any spectacular deals, but I did find these lipbalms on clearance, plus I had a $10 off of $50 purchase coupon so I used that too and got a decent deal on items that are easy to store and usually a quick resell. The big incentive here was to use the $10EB and not lose money on it, sometimes it is hard to use such big amounts!

Caught up on the last 3 years of filing!

June 20th, 2017 at 01:02 pm

When I got remarried in 2015 I also moved to another town, and bought a new house, all basically at the same time.....filing took a back seat to staying on top of normal duties, unpacking, etc. and eventually got too unmanageable to catch up.

This last week I FINALLY tackled it and got all of my filing done for 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. I got rid of a massive pile to shred, made new files for new categories (like Puppies!) and backfiled everything that wasn't for this year. Plus got everything together for this coming years taxes so we won't have to dig around for anything.

Feels so good to cross that off the ole "To Do" list!
