Lost Sleep

March 9th, 2014 at 01:50 pm

I stayed up way to late the last two nights with company in from out of town. I enjoyed the time, but I am wiped out today. It sure doesn't help that the time changed!

I managed to get to the grocery store (Super Target) and used the $25 gift card in the mail, plus some coupons, my cartwheel coupons and my Red Card to save some cash. The gift card will be included in the snowflakes. I also received another $5 gift card for Target for buying two vitamins. Now I'm stocked up!

Good news on the Southwest card, is that my husband has already spent nearly $350 on his work trip on the card. That will be so helpful. I think there is another trip this month that might help with the spending requirement, too!

The bad news on Discover is that I inquired again on the $150 promotional bonus. This time they stated the time frame to meet the bonus must pass before they apply the bonus, regardless of meeting the spending requirement. Did they tell me what date that is? No. I have now inquired about this specific. I like the Discover website interface and how easy it and helpful it is to use, but the online customer service is vague at best. Not willing to offer up information, unless specifically asked. I have had much better assistance with Chase and Capital One. The bonus is earned. It will arrive. I just need to be patient!

We had limited spending this weekend. About $16 at Subway for dinner last night. And I think $3 at McDonald's as my daughter wanted a snack after she went on an outing with me. A rare occurrence, so I didn't mind that expense. Otherwise, fuel on Friday and groceries today. I like those kind of weekends. I will take them when they occur.

Did you lose sleep this weekend? Did you have any fast food, or company visiting you? Anyone waiting patiently or impatiently on money to arrive?

    The answer that Discover gave u doesn't make sense. I meet the requirement and was awarded the bonus before the time period was up. I hope you get your reward soon and remember there are various ways you can redeem Wink

    I agree. I did get them to confirm it will be awarded on our next statement on April 5th. I mentioned others I knew who were getting the reward quicker, but that didn't seem to change anything. Since this is my husband's account, he is the only one who can call. I'm not sure it's something he has time to fight about. We will wait. Maybe mine will be quicker!

    I have found the same thing with the Discover online customer care stuff.

    Yes, we lost sleep too, dang it!

    Didn't really lose sleep. I am anxiously awaiting my reimbursement for my recent professional development trip -- ~$465. That'll be put in the NE moving/trips fund!!

    No company, but a little fast food today. Didn't really lose any sleep....I just hate losing that hour....it always feels like more than an hour for some reason and I don't feel as productive!
