Shopping & Bills

November 30th, 2014 at 05:12 pm

My shopping this weekend was primarily online. I got up early on Friday to order $300 worth of Target gift cards at 10% off, using my Discover card for hopefully 5% cash back. Just now I ordered some items for my daughter's online, for around $60. I'm actually getting close to being done with them!

We went to a botanical garden out of state on Saturday and used our American Express cards since they were considered a small business. Our other Small Business Saturday purchases were at a local liquor store to stock up on a couple of bottles of liquor we usually buy. We didn't end up doing a third transaction. We ran out of time and ideas before stores were closing. We did all of this after returning from a 4+ hour road trip. All a good deal though.

I paid bills this morning and seem to have quite a bit extra that I likely can apply to paying ourselves back for those tires and flute purchase. I will start figuring that out soon! Smile

Did you do any holiday shopping or visit a small business on Saturday? Are you current on your bills?

I have a link in the previous post about the Capital One 360 offers if you are interested.

    I didn't do any shopping in stores or online Friday or Saturday. I will be placing an online order today for Christmas gifts. I may wrap some gifts today. Great job on your shopping! All of my December finances are completed (I use Quicken and a zero based budget) so bills are either set up for payment or estimated amounts are entered until the bill arrives.

    Saturday was "support your local business day". I visited four stores to stock up on basics and support them. I don't think there was any promo for Amex but it seemed to be the right thing to do.

    I stopped at Walgreen's on Saturday on the way back from the library ... That was all the "shopping" I did this weekend. On Friday NE did buy some stuff from Home Depot to ship some eBay sales, and we also picked up a prescription for him from HyVee (kind of local I guess.)

    I earned my $30 Amex credit by shopping at 3 local stores, 2 of them gift shops where I bought gifts and the third was a local, family-owned grocery store that I normally don't shop becus it's so high-priced.
