A Snowball

January 9th, 2014 at 05:39 am

The statement on my husband's Chase Freedom account closed two days ago. Yesterday, the bonus rewards equal to $200 posted. I quickly transferred the rewards over to the Chase Sapphire card and redeemed them, along with some miscellaneous rewards sitting the accounts for a statement credit. The amount was $225.03. Smile

As of this morning the credit has been applied. I made a payment yesterday to the mortgage principal for the same amount. Now we have $225.03 less debt!

I also found a snowflake! It seems I had rewards on my Capital One card in the amount of $2.54. I haven't been using the card, and don't plan to right now, so I requested a check rather than a statement credit. I will have to wait awhile to get that, but it's on its way!

I plan to use a Visa rewards card for $10 while I'm out running an errand today. I also think I have an item to return. So a few more snowflakes are in the works as well. Smile

And if you are curious, my total snowflakes for the month is $384.26! Can't complain about that. Have you paid off any debt this year yet? Did you make a payment larger than normal?

    I would love to have access to the great incentives you guys have! Ours are reward programs not incentives. I used to get about $300/yr in vouchers from expenditure (pay in full each month) but swapped in 2012 to travel rewards. While I am looking fwd to our 'free' upgraded business class seats to the UK later this yr, it actually costs us money. We had to buy the fully flexible economy seats so paid about $800 more than normal and wouldn't pay for business class otherwise.
