Giftcard Inventory

December 25th, 2016 at 07:38 pm

Time to see where we are for giftcards. I have been using a lot lately, got a book from Barnes and Noble, icecream at Cold Stone and 4 pairs of new pants, a planner, and some Christmas gifts at Walmart.

We got a lot of new ones too. MO got $500 in Visa GC for a Christmas gift from his employer!

I checked some of our Visa/MasterCard GC that we received last year, and I found out that after 12 months of not using them you get a $2 per month inactivity fee. We haven't gotten any fees yet and to make sure we don't get any we will be using them for fuel, and everytime we fill fuel with a GC, we will then do a transfer for the same amount from checking to savings. That way we will actually see the benefit of the GC since we don't have any tangible or large purchases that we are needing right now.


Applebees $10
Bubbagump Shrimp $50

    Woah - That's a lot of gift cards! I thought I had a lot at around $500!
    (I tally mine up every time I calculate my net worth.)

    Good job staying on top of the cards to avoid those service fees.

    If you add your Discover, MasterCard and Visa's you've got $1034.37. If you instead funded your Laughlin or Vegas trip with one of those that would knock that goal off of your list. Look at how many date nights you can plan in 2017! Will you get new wardrobe pieces at JCP and Kohl's? Did you think about using these to purchase xmas gifts for next year? Use 'em up! I'm excited for you!!!
