August Snowflake Breakdown

August 30th, 2013 at 07:42 am

I mentioned in my last post that I accumulated $557.48 in snowflakes this month. Those were all sent to pay down mortgage principal, so less debt. And this is BIG; we have sent in $1,361.87 since I started accumulating snowflakes for equity in late June of this year.

Here's where all the August money came from:

Not sure if September has the possibility of earning more snowflakes, but I'll give it a try! I know that we should be able to redeem the Southwest Rapid Rewards in the amount of $500. Since those come in the form of gift cards, I will use them for everyday purchases and use the cash I would have used to send in to the mortgage. I will only count them as a snowflake once I make a purchase. Does that make sense?

The good news on the Southwest Card, is that with a inquiry to customer service we have been given our Rapid Rewards number. I should be able to get that set up, so I can do a redemption next week. Happy, Happy!!

How did you do with your snowflakes in August? Do you have a goal for September?

    You certainly had a flakey month. Smile

    How do you redeem your Swagbucks? Just last night I broke 500 SB for the first time. I don't see any choices for cash. Do you redeem for a gift card you will use, then reimburse yourself?

    @Petunia, I redeem 2500 Swagbucks for a $25 PayPal deposit. That is really the only way to end up with cash. The Amazon.com $5 gift cards, which is a code to add to your account, is only 450 SBs and the best deal.

    Go to the rewards store and type in Pay Pal into the store. It will give you the options for cash through Pay Pal. The smallest amount is $25 (2500 points).

    It is a process to get it through Pay Pal but it pays off!
