Snowflake Rewards

April 21st, 2013 at 02:19 am

I noticed that I have some rewards with USAA. One was a $25 credit on our credit card statement for having spent over $250 at a home improvement store. We purchased a storm door, which easily helped us reach the goal for that reward. I will pay off the card and add $25 to our Christmas fund by the end of the month.

We also have accumulated enough reward points with USAA to redeem for $25. I will wait to redeem those until later in the year and hope there are more points to redeem at that time.

I plan to put two to three items up on Ebay tomorrow night. The proceeds will be added to our Christmas fund as well.

I've decided that if I accumulate more than $1000 in snowflakes this year, that I will put the remainder elsewhere. My first instinct is to put the money towards our mortgage, but the second thought is to start using it to fund vacations. Once I get to the $1K mark, I will decide for sure.

I'm also very close to earning that next $25 from Swagbucks that I will redeem for PayPal cash. It will take another three to four days most likely as I'm at 1925 SB's.

Anyone earning any great snowflakes, credit or debit card rewards? Selling on Ebay or craigslist?

    You are doing well. I think if you get over $1000 you should use it to fund vacations or for something like that.

    Years before DH married me, he loaned money to a coworker. Let's just say DH was a very soft touch when he heard a sad story. Years went by and the guy never paid it back. Well, he tried to once...he wrote a check that bounced and then acted like nothing happened. A few years after we married, I wrote this guy and said it would be nice if he started paying my husband back because after all, he helped him when he was in need, but it was a loan, not a gift. The guy got really irate and wrote my husband a letter about how poor he was and on and on. Poor, but he traveled. A lot. He's been sending us a check for $25 each month for a few years. We view it as found money and it usually goes into a vacation fund or if we are saving up for something big, we deposit it there.
