Whew! Back in business!

January 16th, 2013 at 06:12 am

I'm so glad the blogs are working again. I, too, was checking throughout the day yesterday, wishing, hoping....

Yesterday was not a no-spend day, simply because I had a load of laundry to do. $1.50. Sure seems like I do a lot of laundry, but maybe it's just because I'm paying for it. Since the monthly cost is below my (former) water bill, I am not complaining.

I did a survey for a clinical research site yesterday and will get a check for $20.

I got a card in the mail offering $125 to open an account at Chase. The catch is that I have to set up direct deposit. I actually could do that, not with my paycheck, but with my TIAA-CREF disbursement. I'm just not sure I want two checking accounts. I have to keep the BOA account because I can transfer money to my sons' and sister's account, and sometimes I need to do that in an emergency. I at least like to have the option.

$125 would be a nice snowflake, though.

    I have also received those promotional cards in the mail from Chase but have always opted to not participate because of the hassle it takes to do it.

    I received a similar offer last year (or maybe even 2 years ago now, time flies).
    The fine print said I had to keep the checking account for at least 6 months. So I waited 7, then closed it.

    It does seem like a hassle to move direct deposits around...I think I could do my husband's online though.
