Snowflakes As of Mid May

May 15th, 2018 at 04:22 pm

Yesterday, I noticed we had received our $150 statement credit from American Express. They do it very strangely though were it looks like the credit is from a recent merchant you did business with. An online search did confirm this was our credit card bonus for spending $2K in 90 days for opening the Blue Cash Preferred account.

We received $48.74 from Chase rewards. This is higher than usual, but I expect that is because we are using the card at Grocery stores which is offering 5% cash back for the second quarter.

We received $16.39 as a statement credit with US Bank. We charge our cell phone and electric bill and receive 5% cash back on each of those.

I think I mentioned this before but I did add Ibotta and Ebates proceeds to our snowflakes or Big Goal balance. Those together were $48.84.

I also made a small sale on eBay, so will add that into snowflakes once I know the net proceeds.

Overall, it looks like for half the month we have accumulated over $250 in snowflakes to save towards our Big Goal. Not shabby at all. Have you found any snowflakes this month?

    CCF - i had $6 from ebates, $10 from topcashback, and $25 from Chase Freedrom for our 5% groceries. We also received a $341 check from a rebate for my husband's business. That was a really nice unexpected surprise.

    I thought the statement credit from AMEX was weird too.

    I'm still waiting for my $150 bonus from US bank to credit - it's been pending for at least a month!
