Nearly A Wash

December 18th, 2014 at 02:56 am

We had new brakes installed on my van today. I thought we were getting new pads on the rear, and then thought my husband said both front and back. In the end we just got front end brakes! Cost about $197.

I did get a call from US Bank's Customer Care today confirming I was eligible for the $200 reward. It was not credited automatically from their end because my account did not have the promotion code on it. They do know I was offered the promotion and I had offered the code in my original email. In the end I will be credited the reward by the end of business tomorrow!

The brake cost is offset by the reward! Basically a wash. I like it when that happens. Smile

Our youngest cat seems to have a UTI. It's not confirmed, but you can all guess the problems with that. The vet was not in his office, and our cat was in for a similar issue soon after we moved. They prescribed an antibiotic for the next 7 days. If not better by then she will go in for a recheck, otherwise at least another seven days of antibiotics after that. Cash out the door today was just over $20.

I took a Pinecone survey today. Another $3 coming my way soon. I also redeemed Bing Rewards for a Swag code this morning. It was sent pretty quickly but when I went to enter it in on the Swagbucks site it shows as invalid!! I did sent a help request to Bing about it. Hopefully it is fixed fast!

    That's a good attitude! I found about $50 in CC rewards waiting in my account about the same time a $50 dental bill showed up. I was just bummed I couldn't put the $50 toward my goals instead. Smile

    FYI, my son's cat had UTI and they resolved it by switching from dry food to wet food. Don't know what food you're using, but thought this might help!

    @CB, thanks. I did read that online yesterday and will likely start making a switch. From my understanding it is the grains in the food are part of the problem.

    Just be aware that on an all wet food diet there is an increased risk of dental disease, because one thing that dry food does is help chip tartar off their teeth while they are chewing. Gving some of those tartar control cat treats, as well as regula dental cleanings at the vet, will help keep your wet-food eating kitty's teeth healthier!

    I bet Bing will get back to you very quickly. I've always had good experiences with their customer service.
