Another BIG Snowflake

August 6th, 2013 at 05:58 am

The bonus of $150 earned on my husband's American Express Blue Cash Everyday card appeared this weekend. I redeemed it for a statement credit on the $150 balance that remained. As of this morning it has been applied and the balance is now zero.

I guess this means I have to send in another $150 to the mortgage! Smile Since I would have had to pay the balance if not for the credit, I will just use that money to send in to the mortgage. Simple!

I remembered to count out my Box Tops for Education and found that I had over 100. I put a lot of 100 together and listed them on Ebay. They have not sold yet, but I expect they will as I set a reasonable price. They ALWAYS sell. So, another snowflake is in the works.

Swagbucks deposited last months bonuses yesterday. I was just 28SB away from cashing out for $25. So I put in the time to get those 28SBs and cashed out for $25 cash in my PayPal deposit. ANOTHER snowflake on its way.

My chauffeur service has begun operating again. My oldest daughter who is just starting to drive is needing to get to school for band activities. This means more fuel will be used. Too bad I don't get paid for this service!

We are still in the process of meeting the $2000 in spending on the Southwest card. I know we are over $1000. I'll give a more in depth update on this tomorrow.

Snowflaking debt and savings works! Of course, it may seem easy with these large rewards from credit cards. However, the smaller amounts I find, earn and save still add up. You can do it too! Anyone just getting started with snowflakes? What was your first or latest snowflake?

    Well done. As I've said before, I don't have the organization or patience for this.

    that is a big snowball, my last was yesterday I found a nickel on the floor at starbucks and they took off 10 cents for bringing my own mug = 15 cent total

    btw, I order a fairly inexpensive coffee there: misto (aka cafe au lait) for under $2 (with the discount it runs me around $1.75; they call my mug a 'short' but it seems enough for me).

    WooHoo! Nice snowflake! I am tracking snowflakes this month and it is amazing how small things can add up. I have not got anywhere near as much as you, but I love snowflaking too! My last snowflake was a $5 survey.

    I redeemed for my 5th $5 AGC on SBs today for August.

    Good job on the snowflakes!
