$3 & The Uncashed Rent Check

March 31st, 2017 at 04:50 pm

I received three dollars from Pinecone Research this week. I'm up to nearly 3700 Swagbucks, which I will likely redeem tomorrow for $40 worth of Amazon gift cards. I have some vitamins I need to buy!

Our rent check sent to our landlord in October, and that I know they received because she texted me, has gone uncashed for 180 days. They continue to cash current checks we mail them. The checks specifically state void after 180 days, since they are bill pay checks sent by our bank.

I contacted our bank asking if presented if it would be rejected. They stated yes, but also offered a free stop payment on the check as well. I'm not sure if that was needed if the first is true, but I did take them up on that offer. The stop is good for 180 days. They can put an additional stop on it after that time ends.

I'm just amazed that a landlord wouldn't realize they haven't received their rent! Yes, I could tell them, but I REALLY feel like that isn't my responsibility.

For now, that rent money is back in our budget. It will cover our rent for April and I can use our full paycheck to fill in other areas of the budget. If it comes to their awareness and they let us know, we have plenty of cash to cover it and make good on it.

Is anyone keeping tabs on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pE9EWh4ocDs]April the Giraffe? I've been watching way to much waiting for her to have her baby! Smile

    Has your pinecone gone down significantly like mine has. I used to get at LEAST $15 a month. I think I got $3 last month. Nothing to test. No surveys to take. They keep sending emails about wanting me to sign up for the email receipt thing, which makes me really uncomfortable. So I figure I must be being punished for not letting them read my email receipts. Smile

    Yes, lirpalynn, I only get $3 a month. I do let them see my Amazon purchases with the Shop Tracker. I feel like the survey's stopped once I signed up for that. Not sure whether to stop it all together or not. It's an easy $3 though!

    lirpalynn--you can opt out of those email receipt mailings. There's a thing that lets you unsub from it and they stop sending them to you.
