$ 250.00 - Credit card rewards
$9,171.87 - Balance 11/4
Just redeemed my $250 cash rewards from Chase.
Will cover our Vegas airfare nicely. Otherwise I'd have to say I'd probably save it. Crazy month and all...
Makes it $500 official for the year and a good $1200 with interest and gift cards and such. A good year for the cards. This has been a huge part of the challenge as I just accepted 1% back and was happy for that, in the past. A good $100/month is way more profitable. Took little effort...
I can't help but giggle when I come across the extreme anti-card blogs and radio shows and such. (Dave Ramsey comes to mind). Hate your cards all you want but I'll take the CASH!!! (I also snort at the idea of the credit card companies getting a flipping dime from me. As if! I've made it 14 years and feel quite confident I can figure it out. )
