About a year and a half ago (around August 2008) during the big gas price craziness. Remember that time? Remember paying over $4.25 per gallon? Well I do. It was nuts. Anyway, about that time I switched my credit card to one that was offering .05c off per gallon when used to purchase gas.
After a year the gas price discount offer was over but I didn’t realize it. Not until the other day when we were out getting gas that I asked Jim to use my card because of the discount when he told me the program wasn’t current, that it was over. Huh? Over? Really?
“But you have a whole lotta points you should use” Jim added.
Points? Points? “What do you mean by points?” I asked.
So sure enough, I’ve logged onto the card site and I have over $200 worth of ‘points’ value to use on items ranging from gift cards to exercise equipment, travel to CAMERAS!!!!
Wow. This is great! I can get that camera I need to replace the one that I dropped last year. I can’t believe it! This is very very exciting. Grant it. It is a fairly inexpensive camera, only about $90 but it appears to have everything I might need.
So cool. One of my goals is going to be accomplished (hopefully…crossing fingers and toes) and I didn’t have to do anything! Whoo Hoo!
Have you found money you didn’t know you had? Tell me your story!
