Nice Market & More

July 13th, 2013 at 02:50 pm

I checked our retirement accounts...up over $42K since the beginning of the year. Very happy to see this improvement. Have you checked on your retirement lately?

My husband applied for the Southwest Airlines Rapids Rewards Premier Card today. He was approved! We are very close to the spending minimum on the Capital One Quicksilver card, maybe another $40 left to spend to meet the $500 in spending.

We received my husband's American Express Blue Cash Everyday card yesterday. We have not used it yet, but will put our regular Verizon cell phone bill and our Amazon Prime membership on the card. I have already set those charges up to be applied when due. We will use that card for another $270 to meet the $500 in spending before we move on the the Southwest card.

I just did a quick tally of credit card rewards we have received and expect to receive on cards we have applied for: $1476. Nice sum of change! I expect the total will exceed that before the end of the year. And this doesn't include the 5% savings on the Target Red Card.

Do you have a tally of your savings so far this year, with or without credit card rewards?

    Is that $1476 the total for both you and your husband, getting cards separately? As a single person, I'm just up to $890 once I get all the rewards due me. I just have another $100 to spend on my Bankamericard Travel card and then have to wait to get roughly $600 in pending rewards from 3 different card (Sapphire Preferred, BankAmericard Travel, Amex blue cash everyday).

    The $1476 is both of us combined.

    I can't do the different incentive programs. I have myself on every "do not call, contact, or even think about" list I could find, so my junk mail offers are basically zero, now. Also, I just don't have the discipline to sit down every week to review the cards, purchases, and goals. I could make the time, but I know I won't.
