Found a new bonus credit card offer

December 23rd, 2014 at 07:08 am

Gimme, gimme some lovin...

I'd mostly stopped doing all the bonus credit card offers, mainly because I've pretty much done every one offering bonuses of $100 to $250. I think there was maybe one for $500 that I did. I haven't done the business credit card offers since the required spend for the 1st 3 months is just too high. And since I don't fly much, I don't do those that only offer airline miles. I usually go for gift cards, a statement credit, or cash back.

I occasionally peruse sites like creditcards.com to see if there are any new offers, and there usually aren't.

However, I came across an AARP card on the AARP website where you get $100 after spending $500 in the 1st 3 months. It's a Chase card, and I was approved, so to me, that's easy money for doing what I would be doing anyway. Smile

There was another similar $100 offer for getting a Discover card on the Amazon site. I would have liked to do that one too, but I already have that Discover card. So I guess I would be rejected if I applied for a 2nd one.

Yesterday I got my hair cut for $6.99 + tip. (Note to self: Skip the online check-in at Great Clips in the future. It indicated a 0 minute wait but when i got there, I waited about 15 minutes. Plus I hate giving all my personal info away if I don't have to). I also did most of my grocery shopping at Trader Joe's and TRIED to fill up my gas tank at BJs. Each pump had cars waiting 3 deep but I guess becus of the high usage or something, all the people trying to fill up were saying they couldn't get gas. Perhaps a computer malfunction? I took off and will try again at some point. The price was just $2.53/gallon. The traffic was pretty bad in the expected areas.

Today's mission is to stop at the landfill, maybe check out the antique/collectible place (they're having a sale). I would like to get gas, but the BJs is in the worst possible location, traffic-wise, so I guess my one-third tank will last me til after Christmas.

I don't know why, but I made 2 different soups in the last few days and I have tons of soup left around here. I guess I'll need to freeze some. I made a sweet potato soup and then a vegetable chowder soup; both were new recipes and both are a little watery tasting. Hmm.

Tomorrow is the real cooking day for Christmas. I'm probably overdoing it, but I plan to make 2 pumpkin pies (1 for me at home becus i love pumpkin pie) and using coconut/almond milk instead of cream. Also stuffing, baba ghanoush as an appetizer with some pretzel crackers i have and a carrot/curry soup. Also cranberry orange muffins. I've been doing nothing but wash dishes! Got to remember to use my new dishwasher!!

    I applaud you for doing the offers and keeping up with them. It takes a lot of organization as well as searching these out.

    I will have to check on the AARP. That sounds about my speed too.

    Sounds like a busy time. Isn't it terrific to get cash back for disbursements that are needed anyways. If you find soups too watery, to helps to put a add a few dollops of mashed potato or yam as a thickening agent and more of the called for spice to taste.

    Can't even imagine forgetting I have a dishwasher. New procedure recommendation... when you've finished using a bowl, hand appliance, DW safe pan, cutlery etc, it immediately goes directly in the DW. Because it uses extremely hot water, you can run it full every other day or speed wash if not so full. If you have delicate china or truly gold decorative china, hand wash is much safer. Check with your electric company if electricity rate in your community is reduced after 7 pm. We run the DW in the late evening and don't use the 'dry' option. We open the door and let it air dry just before going to bed. As I turn on the coffee maker in the AM, my 1st chore is to empty DW and put everything away leaving the machine ready for the day's collection.

    Looking forward to learning what you choose at the antique outlet. Your pie, appetizer and soup sound grand. Merry Christmas

    Here is the link to the AARP credit card offer. You don't have to an AARP member to get it.
