A new snowflake

January 9th, 2014 at 06:18 am

I got my $30 cash reward from Discover for making a purchase over $1000. It went into my snowflakes.

I paid a doctor bill yesterday for $19. I charged it to my flex-spending card, and I think my balance on it is probably too low, but I'm not sure. So I will let them run it and tell me. I don't think I can apply it to this year's flex spending fund because the appointment was in December.

The temperature continues to hover around zero. I am more than ready for the warm-up. However, I can tell it's warmer than it was by the comfort level in my condo. Much better.

Really need to grocery shop this weekend but I am more determined than ever to stick to 10 items. I was considering making it an Aldi trip, but I want to transfer a prescription to Osco to get a $25 reward. So, Jewel it is! And while I am there, I will buy quarters. This will have to wait until Sunday, the day after my Discover card cycle closes.

I also really need to do laundry! And, I need to get my son's help to take out the air conditioners and get the Christmas stuff stored in the basement. If I can just get those things done I will be satisfied.

My new insurance card has still not arrived. I've been told that the weather has interfered with the distribution -- apparently the cards were being shipped out of Indiana, where a major highway was shut down. I am waiting on that card before I make my physical therapy appointment. Meanwhile, my leg is worse than ever. Navigating over the ice and snow is not helping!

The good news is, it's my second day of work this week and it's already Thursday!

    Do you count cashback as a snowflake when it posts to your account, or when you cash it out?

    When it posts.

    Do you have to wait to schedule the appointment? they can look up your insurance in their system or you can have the insurance call and verify your membership so you can get it scheduled.

    You might also be able to print your card off their website.

    Probably not, but I am very skittish about using an HMO (again). My previous experience has been that they will use any excuse not to pay. So I'm going to have all my ducks in a row before I start.
