How Annoying!

August 18th, 2011 at 03:49 am

I just packed up all the credit cards - 4 for the slicer. (We earned all our rewards!)

That said, I logged into Chase to make sure dh hit $500 purchases today (I was pretty sure he did).

Um, we've had the card like a week, if that, and they closed the monthly cycle already. Rolleyes Oh well - the reward was $200. I was going to put it to the mortgage, and didn't expect the cash before 8/31, anyway. The annoying part is that it is one more thing to remember (can't just kill them all THIS month). Dh spent about $125 today - after the credit card closed for the month. Bah!

I got a haircut over the weekend and so charged that on the Southwest Chase. One purchase = $500 Amazon gift cards. Yay!

Dh hit $2000 on the Citi. Health Insurance hit today. We should have $1000 in gift cards to redeem by the end of the month, between this and the Southwest Chase. Woohoo!

+$200 to the mortgage in September... If I don't forget! Big Grin

(I checked - and it hasn't even been a whole month since I applied for the stinking card - what's with the super early mid-month cycle thing?)

It's back to earning a steady 2% cash back on the AmEx. This is much easier! Phew!

    I am waiting to receive my Chase Freedom card in the mail. Can't wait to start using it! Of course, being out of work, I'm not spending on anything but absolute necessities. That being said, it should be relatively easy to spend $500 in 3 months. I plan to start charging my utilities, which I've never done before. And really making sure that card is with me wherever I go.So many times I PLAN to charge something at checkout and then find I left the card at home.
