Snowflake Updates

September 22nd, 2014 at 07:14 am

I sent in some snowflakes to the mortgage this morning. I used $18.24 in Amazon gift cards obtained from Southwest rewards and Bing/Swagbucks. I also had a $3 payment from Pinecone and earned $5 using the Ibotta coupon app. This means we now have $26.24 less mortgage debt!! I like less debt.

So far for the month of September, we have accumulated $182.20 worth of snowflakes which all have been sent in to the mortgage.

I did skip an extra mortgage principal payment this month equal to $275. I used it to pay off some charges on credit cards. Charges that are not costing us interest, but would if I didn't use that money. I'm still ahead of schedule on my mortgage goal, so that is what helped sway my decision to use the money on the purchases versus the mortgage. And I didn't really want to pull from savings! I like my savings intact.

Where are you getting your extra funds (snowflakes) this month? How much have you accumulated.

    I have received $75 from Swagbucks this month. I've also cashed in for $9 from Pinecone, and will have another $6 soon.

    I should be getting my cashout from Bubblews soon - about $111 if I remember right. (I'm up to $71 for September so far.)

    I tried using the Ibotta app, but there just wasn't much I could use.
