All Good News!

April 1st, 2014 at 10:55 am

I just sent off two snowflakes to the mortgage in the amount of $201.20! That money combined with our regular mortgage payment and the extra $103+ I tack on each month, will bring our mortgage down below the $X25,000 threshold! Yippee!! That means less than $9K to go to meet our mortgage goal for the year.

That $200+ is my $150 Discover bonus that I had deposited into our checking account and a check for $51.20 which was our Washington DC fundraising proceeds. I prepaid the trip in full, so the fundraising dollars came back once I had a credit balance. That is about the amount my daughter will take for spending money, but she is to take that from her own savings, since we paid for the trip.

I made another BIG payment to our Chase Southwest card today. It was just over $809. That covered a work trip my husband was reimbursed for and some other miscellaneous spending. The first statement has not closed yet, but when it does I will make our final payment. That payment will include the $69 annual fee, which I will pay. I will then close the account and ask for a refund of the fee. Smile

I'm going to participate, as best I can, in the declutter/organizing challenge for the month of April. I did complete my goal of 20 workouts last month. I also lifted weights 10 times. I started counting calories in mid to late February. I have lost 11 pounds since then. I feel great!!

I will detail March snowflakes and mortgage principal paid in tomorrow's post. It will not include the two items mentioned above since those were not allocated until April.

Did your April begin with a snowflake? Are you joining in on the declutter and organizing challenge? How did you do with your exercise goals in March?

    Say CCF, do you wait to receive the gift cards before closing the SW card, or is it safe to say you'll get them once you've ordered them? Also, how do you request the fee refund -- online or on the phone?

    I would say it is safe to say you will get them once ordered. Mine are being delivered tomorrow. I think I will make my final payment next week. Once the payment clears I will cancel and request refund. I request the refund online through the secure message feature. Works great!

    Thanks! I paid it off a while ago and was waiting for the points, so I shall cancel online today and try for the fee refund. Would make a great snowflake since I've already written it off!
