Credit Card Rewards Tally 2019

June 2nd, 2019 at 10:33 am

2019 TALLY:

$550 Gift Cards (Citi, Moi)
$150 Bank Bonus

**In addition, various monthly rewards that I will tally at 12/31.


I finally got around to redeeming our gift cards. They had a much wider selection than I expected (better than in the past).

I redeemed the following:
**$100 Target (will help cover summer groceries)
**$100 Kohls (kids both need running shoes)
**$100 Regal

Was going to get the Regal card anyway, but the Regal card was on sale so was able to get an extra $10 out of our $500+ reward. Score! We will mostly stick to the free movies/rewards, but this will buy some extra movies during the summer.

Restaurant gift cards redeemed:
**Cracker Barrel (just because we got a new one here, have only been on the East Coast otherwise)
**Red Robin
**Ruth Chris (will do a fancy date lunch)
**Seasons 52 (for date night)
**Olive Garden (we sometimes order in with my parents)

These gift cards will last us a long time, we don't eat out very much. These will easily last us the rest of this year, but I did redeem with our "reduced income summer" in mind and having more treats at our disposal.

***CAVEAT - I absolutely do not recommend utilizing credit card rewards in this manner, unless you are in full control of your credit card spending. We treat our credit cards like debit cards; only charging if we have the cash on hand already. We've never paid a cent of late fees or interest.***

    Good use of your rewards. We have two credit cards. Actually, I have two credit cards. DH only one. I had a Discover card before we married and I kept it in my name solely in hopes of keeping an individual credit rating. Both pay some rewards, not huge, but then again, we don't use the cards for everything and we pay the balance off at the end of the month.
